    As a Remainer, I'm proud to say that Delia is the (joint) owner of my club. If you're not, well you probably don't agree with a lot of what Sheik Mansur and his lot get up to at home, but I doubt you would turn them down if they wanted to buy NCFC. I'm also proud that my club has got to where it is by doing things the right way, investing for the long-term, shopping for talent wisely, contributing to the wider community and playing entertaining football on top of all that.

    What the heck does that mean? What the heck it means is that last season we had to perform as a self financing club. And we won the league. Meanwhile clubs like QPR, Reading,Stoke, Bristol City all with super rich owners, finished well below us. Others are not as super rich but have very wealthy owners So with only three promoted from the Championship, some supporters were disappointed and may wonder why they have super rich owners if they don't do well. We don't have to. This year is a complete bonus and any criticism is so blindly stupid that it makes me wonder why some bother following the club at all.

    I don't think agents consider their client's preferences a great deal these days.

    Yeah but where do facts and logic get you? Sajid “the economic benefits of Brexit are self-evident” Javid is clearly untroubled by them.

    Never have I "liked" or " thankyou'd" so many posts on one page of a thread, to save anyone checking I firmly pro Delia. She may occasionally be ridiculed for the ' let's be havin you" tirade , but is also widely admired and respected for her love and unflinching support of and for the Club. She is a figurehead that most football people are aware of, "Norwich City" ....that's Delia isn't it. Despite a few beatings already this season our Club is a stable , progressive, self funded entity, with almost every bit bought and paid for. I wouldn't swap her for anyone other than a younger version of herself....just so she could carry on for longer. As for Tom, let's not knock him until he is in charge and messing up big time, which may never happen. People bandy around expressions like. ' Suffolk socialists' and Nepotism Tom' while at the same time offering no real alternative other than " someone with a shoiteload of money '. ... though who exactly that might be, given that our current books balanced status means that we would cost a fair few quid to buy. No one is getting their hands on our club for a quid and taking on our debt, cos we dont have one. Long may it continue. Once again .....you dont need rich owners if you have a rich Club. I don't really care if we never win the champions league, the premier league or the Europa league, I do care that we are a real Club, with a defined and well trodden pathway from academy to first team, Bolstered by smart recruitment and quality coaching , giving us a Club that can compete and entertain. If this leads, over time, to us being very successful on the pitch as well , then that is all I can ask. If it all fails and in five years time we are in league one or two and in debt to our eyeballs then I will apologise to all , including BV . Untill then, back under your bridge , Troll.

    "A king emperor left in 24 hours, and we are removing an imperial yoke in over a week," he added. I wonder what the rest of the World thinks about JRM. A throwback to boys up chimneys, naval power, the gold standard and doffing your cap to the squire. Now that the public seems to have completely lost faith in Parliament it is probably time to finally blow it up and start again. Even the Royal Family has moved into the 21st century by marrying actresses and discussing mental health. But Parliament is stuck in its antiquated format and needs overhauling.

    On the FA Cup 1st round draw one of the players interviewed wants to play against Plymouth as he supports them. I've never really understood this view point. I've never been good enough to be in the position to play against Norwich but as a fan I always want them to win so why would I want to play against them and try to beat them? When I was working in the north east I remember a colleague telling me that Chris Waddle never played in a Tyne/Weir derby as he was 'injured'. So it looks like he didn't want to play. Is it just Waddle and me?

    Thanks Herman. Just seen that there will be a vote later today. Still seems a little unclear as to whether the timescales can be amended or just that the proposed ones are rejected.

    There might well be (unless this has changed it is Labour policy that if Brexit happens it should be with a CU, not least because it solves the Irish/Northe Sea border problem). However the government will argue that a CU is a question to be settled in the post-Brexit trade talks and is not relevant to the Withdrawal Agreement.

    Probably the reality that they will never play for their club, so the next best thing. Personally and having played a bit of semi-pro football I'd have loved the chance to play away at Norwich in early rounds of the FA Cup. Would have been a dream come true.

    I didn't see the united goal as a foul (barely touched the guy and wasn't upended) but I did see the Liverpool one as handball so VAR got that right for me on both counts. VAR was brought in to review whether or not it was a foul, not to give fouls for even the most minimal of contact.

    I have always rated Tettey and have never quite understood why some have consistently written him off or criticised his passing. Of course if you play him next to another player who only plays simple passes then its going to leave you a bit lacking in creativity and I think sometimes people have not considered that. If you play Tettey next to the right player then he is generally excellent as he has been whenever he's come into the side this season. Its also absolutely no coincidence that in 2 of the 3 games he has played (and he obviously went off injured at Burnley) we have produced our best defensive displays of the season because, as others have said, he is the one who provides the screen for the defence or is capable of the sort of "professional" foul that stops the opposition midfield having a free run on our defence. Unless and Amadou proves himself a worthy replacement in that position Tettey should (fitness permitting) be starting every game and against the better sides I would play him alongside Trybull to really give us that midfield solidity.

    Put your political bias to one side, if you can, and ask yourselves if you can disagree in any way with this statement. “Clubs are part of the social fabric that binds us together. They are too important to be left in the hands of bad owners who put their business interests ahead of everything else, marginalise supporters and even put the financial security of clubs at risk.” “Sport must be run in the interests of those who participate in it, follow it and love it, not just for the privileged and wealthy few."

    Tettey has continually been our best DM including last season. The period of the season between September and Xmas with Tettey and Leitner in midfield was the most impressive for me. We dug our way out of the poor start of the season, many players still working out how to play with each other and in their positions within the team and Tettey was instrumental in keeping it all together. I had numerous ‘debates’ on here about his effectiveness in the team and as good as Trybull has been, he simply doesn’t offer the protection that Tettey does. So disciplined and so focused, there’s no one better at being in the right place at the right time protecting the back 4. A simple ball to Leitner or elsewhere then got us going again. He doesn’t need the fancy tricks or passing range, he does his job superbly and let’s the rest do theirs. He’s also a leader on the pitch, of which we’ve been lacking of late with Krul and Zimmerman out. A faithful servant that should be much more appreciated
