Norwich vs Sunderland, Premier League Gameweek 15: Open Thread

norwich city Norwich vs Sunderland, Premier League Gameweek 15: Open Thread

I always enjoy watching a match on television from Carrow Road. The quaint ground, good footballing side and colorful supporters are a refreshing sight to see in the Premier League. And today, they come up against the dark force of Sunderland, a team that is mired in negativity and as predictable as a Manchester United late victory.

Before, during or after today’s match between Norwich and Sunderland, post your rants, raves, questions or observations in the comments section below.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Sunderland are in a funk so they desperately need a win today. Norwich will be difficult to beat as they have played well so far this season. Let’s hope for a cracking game.

  2. IanCransonsKnees says:

    Draw is my favoured result. However it gives me the opportunity to give one of my favourite football songs an airing.

    ‘You are a wurzel, a dirty wurzel,
    You only sing when you’re making hay,
    Your mum’s a nympho, your dad’s a scarecrow,
    Ooh aar, ooh aar, ooh aar!’

  3. Dust says:

    What the hell was that from Rob Stone openly calling the Sunderland guy fat and mocking him like that. What the hell kind if b******** is that? How many kids watch the show, now they see the face of the show mocking someone for their size like that?

    Un believable unprofessional. Just fire rob stone, either that or someone give him a slap on air.

    I can’t believe he jaut did that for lie, 2 straight minutes

  4. Dust says:

    If Danny Rose could figure out how to manage his temper better he could be very good, he has too short a fuse tho.

    • MmMMmmMm says:

      We’re talking about former Leeds wunderkind Danny Rose? No, this is as good as it’s gonna get.

    • Scrumper says:

      Agree, he is a decent player but the red mist goes to his head. In the second half he had a good shot saved then decided he would be their main striker and wasted the next two Sunderland attacks with speculative efforts.

  5. IanCransonsKnees says:

    Yellow, yellow, yellow! Another cracking chant.

  6. Mufc77 says:

    First match I ever went to was at Carrow rd. A thrilling 1-1 draw with Man City.

  7. jtm371 says:

    so have you come down from yesterday? it had to be one of the best days in a while all the evil teams lost and ManU almost lost.

    • Dust says:

      Not yet, lol, looking. Forward to this week as the media sink there teeth in an apply the pressure to Farcenal and CFC. Thinking about the Everton game this Saturday coming.

      • jtm371 says:

        i think Everton will be a tough match with no Bale a draw would not be a bad result.i would have to say Chelski is in more trouble than AFC but not by much.

        • Dust says:

          CFC have a great squad with incredible talent, they lack a good manager to belove in, motivation is an issue for them as they are mostly young players.

          CFC are a joke but for different reasons.

          Farcenal are just a joke.

          The Everton game will be interesting for sure tactically.

          Now ade is available I would still play 4-2-3-1 and replace Dempsey with ade and put falque in place of bale,

          The key is to stiffle the supply to forwards, Baines need to be shut down, as does Fellaini, so I would put Sandro on Fellaini.

  8. IanCransonsKnees says:

    Looks like MON might actually be offering his resignation this week.

    Pilkington is an excellent example of a decent lower league player having paid his dues and learnt his trade.

    Chris Hughton will get head hunted again I’m sure.

  9. jtm371 says:

    congrats on your boys with a huge away win and you wanted to get rid of Tony P shame on you and how about the hiding the All Blacks took from England.

    • IanCransonsKnees says:

      I wouldn’t say I want rid of him, believe me I appreciate what he’s done for us immensely. If he’d gone, before this debacle, I’d have taken Rafa.

      The rugby was awesome, a historic victory. Can’t wait for the 6 Nations now.

  10. Dust says:

    MON has some serious issues to face, the squad he as they should be doing better. Newcastle fire CH for pardew and they look likethey are in trouble because he didn’t expand his squad.

    And CH is doing well with NCFC, longest unbeaten run except for man city in the prem after taking man utd and Farcenal scalps, actually the Farcenal scalp is no big deal as they are a mid table club. LoL

    CH had a difficult Jon, taking lambert s squad and players and making them better, he has done. Good job.

    And they just drew Peterborough in the FA Cup which will be a great game, as will the Spurs Coventry game. It still hurts loosing to those…… those ….b…….
    Still hurst to much .

  11. jtm371 says:

    what a awful miss that will make the low lights poor effort.

  12. jtm371 says:

    what a great win yesterday for your Swans and now you get the Gunners in the FA draw at least your side knows what it takes to get the win.

  13. Guy says:

    This could be my last match with Fox Soccer. Going to have a little face to face chin wag with Time Warner about my new cable bill. Too much money for too little use.

  14. Matt says:

    Speaking of Fox Soccer, how could they not be showing Shakhtar-Juve on any of their networks? Who selects their games?!
