    You must have made that up Splendid! I have never heard of such a thing and can't imagine any city fan doing it. In any case it hasn't been that hard to get tickets until post Christmas so why weren't these people buying them? The idea that no families are getting into CR is a myth. I see plenty and there's three generations of my family there every game with me being the only old codger..

    As has been mentioned, the extra capacity would allow the Club to bring back kids for a quid or similar incentives. Which will secure our fanbase in the future, the fact that the Stadium is currently full means that it's hard to attract new support. I've heard that some people are taking their kids to 1p5wich just so they can watch a game, we don't want that to become a trend do we?

    If they did anything scientific about Robbie Savage, it wouldn't stretch to 45 minutes.

    Nutty, it doesn't have to be filled to be worthwhile. The South stand's capacity was doubled from 4,000 to 8,000. Once that was paid for (and I know that was not easy but...) any usage above 4,000 from that moment until who know how many decades ahead represented, represents and will continue to represent pure profit. In terms of ticket sales and extra money from catering and commercial. You didn't and don't have to fill all those extra 4,000 extra to bring in extra money. The same with the main stand. Double that to take capacity to around 31,000. You don't have to fill all those 4,000 extra seats to pay off the debt. Money can come from good husbandry, especially given the new approach. And once paid for, as with the South Stand, any usage above the 4,000 that was there is extra money the club otherwise would not receive. There is a common misconception that if you are in the Premier League money from tickets sales and catering and commercial doesn't matter because of the TV money. Not so, and particularly not so for a club like Norwich City. And away from the PL, maximising non-TV money becomes even more important. For expansion to make sense in the long run, and that is the only way these decisions can be assessed, there do do not have to be 4,000 or 5,000 extra NCFC fans (let along an extra 8,000) out there who will turn up to every game no matter which division we are in. There needs only to be one or two thousand extra who will turn up some of the time.

    I didn't have my glasses on, but whatever they were wearing didn't half want ironing...

    With an increasing population, the fact that we have no competition for over a hundred miles and Premiership football on offer means that we are uniquely placed to take advantage of the situation that we find ourselves in. As for 'historically' a quick look down the road shows what happens when all you do is look backwards.

    New Kits - Why did you...?

    Just looked on the club website for something and noticed that our kit launch last season was 2nd July - perhaps we’ll be a bit earlier this year.

    New Kits - Why did you...?

    The West Ham shirt looks like the one they wore during the Brooking, Devonshire days, with a light blue chest. I agree that the shorts should be white. As for the Chelsea shirt, it doesn't matter if it's sh!te, they'll sell millions, just like some of the abominations that Man U have dredged up over the years.

    Grant Hanley

    Unfortunately, Farke has to make that decision and as things stand Godfrey and Zimmerman are first choice with Klose coming on if needs be. The fact that Hanley hasn't had a sniff since Portsmouth (I think) shows that there's clearly a pecking order.

    Served with papers yesterday. Was dropped in the state court as she had form for being a liar, though now being pursued though federal court. Juve have pulled out of a tournament in the US as he might get arrested if he goes

    Nominations for YOUR goal of the season

    But there are so many to choose from!
  16. The Great Mass Debater

    First Round Game 15 (2018/9 vs 2005/6)

    Yes, this is quite an easy choice. Though its hard to spurn a team featuring Hucks, Deano and Earnie. Every team has it's heroes. Though there were a few dire teams at one point without too many of them (the Rioch/Hamilton/Roeder eras particularly)

    .... any goal against 1p5wich is worth double

    Inside No. 9

    Started watching this series. Just watched this, the 3rd episode. Very good https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03w7w6x/inside-no-9-series-1-3-tom-and-gerri
  19. Having just caught up with tonights TV debate, a few points arise "Raab made a reasonable point. “The minute we telegraph to the EU that we are not willing to walk away, we lose our negotiating leverage.” But Stewart pointed out the flaw, which is that parliament is not prepared to let a prime minister “walk away” by taking the UK out of the EU without a deal. “A threat isn’t credible unless it can be delivered,” he said. " "Stewart’s challenge was in fact to all the candidates .......How would they get us out of the EU when parliament refuses to vote for the deal and refuses to allow us to leave without a deal? " " It was left to Stewart to sum up the problem with the phrase “no deal”. He said: “It means no to trade, no to a deal, no to detail.” He is right, but the problem with his message is that it comes close to saying that Brexit cannot be done. That may be too much honesty for the Conservative Party – let alone the country. " yep, I have read through other media comments but this seemed to sum it up best....others can read the full article, if only to ensure that I have not doctored it, or as with another poster on here put up only half the story https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/tory-leadership-debate-brexit-rory-stewart-channel-4-gove-hunt-javid-raab-a8961426.html the last bit highlighted in red points out what is dividing the country - a delusion by some that the impossible can be had if only someone would deliver it until the impossibility of that sinks in, we will be subject to the continual bleats of ignorance, as if they alone can drown out reality

    The club are opening a new store downstairs in Pilch as the cycle shop in there have now closed down. That's the rumour I've heard.

    First Round Game 15 (2018/9 vs 2005/6)

    This one has been the easiest choice by far.
  24. Mr Angry

    First Round Game 15 (2018/9 vs 2005/6)

    Only Hucks, Deano and Earnie (possibly Fleming) would get anywhere near the first XI this season.

    sadly, I think it is more an occupation in Til's case
  26. " Jeremy Hunt has signalled he is willing to delay Brexit as he refused to commit to leaving the EU "at any cost" by the end of October if wins the contest to succeed Theresa May. " " “the only way of stopping that prime minister [implementing a no-deal Brexit] would be to bring down that prime minister’s government... I will not hesitate to do that ... Even if it means my resigning the whip and leaving the party.” Ken Clarke " Cabinet minister Amber Rudd has revealed she believes there is a sufficient number of Tory MPs who are willing to topple a government intent on leaving the EU without a Brexit deal. " "A Tory MP has broken ranks and announced he's prepared to BRING DOWN the government to stop a No Deal Brexit . Veteran Remainer Dominic Grieve declared he "will not hesitate" to back Labour in a no-confidence vote if needed to stop a "chaotic and appalling" exit on October 31." All of which rather backs up Bill's words of a week or so back " And if the next PM tries to enforce 'no deal' they will face a vote of no confidence which would mean either a backing down from that position or a coalition government being form from the progressive parties. " June 7th ps i do wonder if some of these politicians don't read this thread to see what I have said before they make their utterances

    Good point, Dan - that just disappeared without a trace weirdly. And cheers for the vid, TGMD. They should have done one of these on Robbie Savage...
