    Apparently, Ricky van Wolfwinkel's nickname in Portugal was 'Nuno da Goalo!'

    17th June 1902, club formed...18th June 1902, first recorded utterence of "Club's in crisis/Club's a joke" and grumbles of dissatisfaction. Apples

    I believe it's a bad pun on Costa coffee (Nuno da Costa).

    Selling Malky and replacing him with Simon Charlton? What was Worthy thinking?

    not a second tier, but an extension higher and behind the original...like the top tiers of the Barclay and River Ends Foundations, new services and existing service diversion can be done without too much disruption to patrons of the City Stand, the bit that needs some thought would be removal of existing roof and construction of a new one. Get the timing right, and manipulate the fixture list at end of one season and start of next, and there is a four month window to undertake the work that needs to be done with no-one sat underneath...or potentially spread over 2 summers if it can´t be done in 4 months

    I have heard the same argument made at AGM's stretching back into the dim and distant past. However for a full house match the prospective attendance now is no bigger than it was fifty years ago and I would argue that it is probably smaller. There are lots of factors involved in that and most of them can be linked to pricing in the modern game. Fifty years ago you could have a couple of pints and wander down to pay on the gate at a cost of barely more than you had paid in the pub. Yes, while in the Premier League they could cut prices but then what happens when they are relegated? It would be suicidal to commit funds to a long term project without the certainty of being able to meet the debt. The past is littered with example where this went wrong and one of them is just a little way down the A140. As for being uniquely placed, well in case I am much mistaken Norwich has not moved further from the larger centre's of population in recent years, however I would agree that communications are certainly better. During successful periods we could probably fill a 30k ground for the big matches and an overall average of about 28k might be achievable. Kids for a quid is a nice idea but it was introduced because gates were floundering. I can't see the club venturing on a £30+ million project just to sell seats for a quid, its not going to happen. The other point about increased capacity is that a large number of fans would see it as a better opportunity for casual attendence and thus obviate the need to commit to a season ticket. I repeat, I would love to see the main stand redeveloped and an increase to something over 31k and I am sure that the powers that be at CR would like it too. In view of the apparent logistical and financial realities I would have to agree that there is no pressing need for an early commitment to put this in place.

    I don't think it works like that under Farke. All the players are treated the same and it is up to individuals to stake their claim in training and then whoever gets the nod then has the chance to keep their place in the team.

    They’ve said it will be dispatched tomorrow, supplier issue. I opted for collection as not paying a crazy amount for delivery

    That is a great watch GMD thanks. Talk about somebody being able to do something with their eyes shut, the footage where he scores when the lights go out I find amazing.

    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?

    This one auto-ran. Also a good vid. If only for the jubilance they show at the start Is it against the rules to celebrate in front of the opposition? I'd have been tempted if I was Klose

    The home kit that year had promise. I think they were going for the retro half and half look... However, clearly Aviva were not having it - so we ended up with that horrible tetris shaped home kit, thanks to the massive yellow block in the middle

    Panic buy. Not good enough with the ball. Get rid. Cardiff, Forest, Derby must be interested.

    Delia? I'd forgotten about her. She only ever seems to appear when we're losing.

    He'll have a point that it cant be right we are away both first and last? also the Premier league admitted a while ago that they never pair two possible title contenders on the last day (although they've slipped up this season !!!)
