Agree that Micky may well be planning life without Nors next season - altho it’s hard to plan when u don’t knows what division you will be in.

As RLC points out, Nors will get better offers than cookie and Norburn. The latter 2 left us after very good seasons in the national league but were unproven in the football league. Nors has proven he can do the business in league 2 so at the very least ambitious league 1 clubs will want him.

You couldn’t blame him and he’ll always be a legend in my eyes for what he’s done in his time with us. Football is a short career. He could lose his pace one day and then where would he be. I know he is very happy on the Wirral but there will be plenty of southern clubs after him closer to his family home

So whether we go up or not, really can’t see him being here next season so let’s enjoy his last few games which hopefully will fire us to promotion

There must surely have been enquiries about Nors in the last transfer window. That being so, M and N deserve huge credit for not buckling.
Nors? Even greater credit to him. He would have been aware of interest from likely very attractive suitors yet he's been unflinching for the SWA cause.
The social media hounding he's had about signing a new contract, undoubtedly with good intentions, has been tiresome and I hope when goes he has not one jot of "he's turned his back on us" and is good in himself about it.
The picture of him on his knees at the corner flag at Wembley will adorn the walls of PP forever.

That one match ensured his "legend" status. A brilliant assist and an unforgettable winning goal. We owe him a lot. He should be able to leave with everyone's blessing and good wishes.

Absolutely. Whilst I would be gutted to see him leave, he's played a huge part in reviving this club over the last few years and that day at Wembley goes down as one of the best. I wish him all the best wherever he ends up.

Nominated as an EFL player of the season - no surprise! I see FGR are home to MK Dons on Sat - a home win and we beat Carlile will close the gap again to the automatic promotion places!

5th best clean sheet record in the top 4 tiers and level top in the league with MK and Mansfield.

Was surprised to see no Scotty or any of our defence in the voted for by managers team of the season.

Back on point, Nors deservedly in there and must be a shoe-in for player of the season!

Scotty certainly deserves a nomination but our back four has changed a lot this season, although Manny has played a lot. Remember there are a lot of very good players with other clubs. If not, we'd be walking away with the title. ;)

In fairness, I have not seen a better centre back than Manny this season, or a better right back than Caprice.

Remember when Manny first joined and we were a little unsure. It's incredible how much these players have improved under Micky.

NORWOOD said in his post match talk that he got wind that united had mad plans to stop him . so he said i studied . them to find ways to counter them . well i must say well played NORWOOD for showing that if you do the work you get the goodies to go with it

Some sources suggesting Nors has agreed a 3 year deal with Huddersfield. Although relegated from the PL, it would be a great move for Nors albeit only a rumour

We've heard so many rumours about him, I won't believe anything till it is announced. However, it would be Championship football and the Terriers will have enough parachute money to beat any deal we could offer. But if he likes living in the area and wants an easy journey to work, he'd be better off at Wigan, Preston or Blackburn.
