Not playing again. It's in Norwich's interest to find him game time. Send him here for a while. You know it makes sense Delia.

just got a text from my Norwich mate saying Pritchard was world class today and can't believe he hasn't started many games for Norwich. Really hopes Pritchard stays Injury free now and kick on with his career. One of the best players to have ever played for us.

A real shame the way his career has not really moved on since his time with us. Best player I've seen play for us.

How much did Norwich pay for him again?

Jota is better..
Jota is different. My impression is that Pritchard would make a very busy and productive midfielder playing centrally, as a number 10 or centre of a 3 in a 4-3-3, rather like Judge.

Pritch was good, he has pulled up trees since his injuries whilst with WBA & Norwich, whilst Jota has been more consistent but I do understand your point..

Better to watch, maybe - but doesn't control a game the way Pritchard was by the time he left us. He can still do it too - as he did to our cost in that embarrassment at Norwich before Christmas. Given Spurs' willingness to give youth a chance, reckon he'd have had a good shot at making it as a Premiership regular for them if he hadn't had that injury.

Don't tell our Czech resident. He will see it as some kind of abuse

I would say Pritchard and Judge were more effective. But of course we are not talking of comparing like with like. Pritchard was superb in the last 2/3 of his season with us. He was absolutely key to our success that season.

agreed, but Judge hardly scored a goal unlike Pritch and Jota..

The plum Alex Neil on the TV panel is finding it hard to give Pritch much praise , it all sounds a bit grudging maybe because he hasn't quite grasped that his failure to play and thus get the best out of players like Pritchard ( and Canos) may have contributed to him losing his job

Out for 12 weeks following ankle surgery, according to the BBC.

What's happened here? Really sad fact that after his wonderful season with us, he's started just 23 games. 24 years old now. Really thought he was the real deal, probably more than anyone else in that side.

He is Spurs through and through, there from the age of 7 and promoted to the first team squad after playing for us and the U20 national squad.
I think we were the perfect side for him as did his family but he had belief in his ability and thought he'd be playing for Spuds so he returned.
Not to be, Christiansen was better so he copped the hump and Naaarich offered him more than Brighton so he made his decision that in hindsight was wrong.

Just goes to show, that selling yourself to the highest bidder, is not necessarily the wisest thing to do. Hope his luck turns. A very good player.

A player who would be on our radar if we made it to the premier league . As of now his wages will mean he could stay on the bench until his contract runs out which is a shame for a player who could have played at the highest level

Had operation on his ankle, deemed to be "one of Norwich's most valuable players" (EDP).
Back in light training already.
Could he be a benchman against us on 22/12!

"“Alex Pritchard is able to do some running stuff and we have to hope he perhaps can return after the next international break to team training,” Farke said. “So that would mean he is back in the middle of November, he would need additional weeks of training before he is back.

“As I mentioned a few weeks ago I think about him for the beginning of January, so perhaps he can return a little bit earlier if everything works.

“If there is not setback then it could be that he will be in team training in the middle of November then perhaps after three or four weeks in the middle of December perhaps he is available for a short-term appearance in the league.”

His bank balance is no doubt doing well but a real shame he hasn't really played that much since his season with us. Best player I've seen play for Brentford. One of the only players I've consciously thought when playing for us 'make the most of his appearances because we haven't got him for much longer'.

Shame he hasn't got to The Premiership. He still might of course, but injuries have really held him back so far.

He was out for three quarters of the following season after his time with us - seem to recall him getting injured on international duty that summer, and then spending a month or two on loan at WBA in the Prem. Accepted the offer from BHA before changing his mind at the last minute and joined Norwich instead. Was a big player for them last season, but obviously injury is hampering his development.
