  1. When I mentioned about just needing a tall target man and we''re in the playoffs.  I really meant I think he does have a plan, knows what hes doing and knows that that is the main part of the jigsaw he is missing.  He knows it, we know it.  Getting someone is difficult of course.  Someone mentioned Phillips.  Phillips was never going to uproot in his final years to a completely new part of the country. I agree about Walker, Stringer, Brown, Bond but that just seems too long ago.  
  2. He''s a good defender, but he cant pass the ball.  How many times do we lose possession when he''s trying to play it/hoof it from the back.
  3. Roeder is the best manager we have had in years His teams are fit, players brought in can pass better than many we have had, he seems to have a transfer strategy and has brought better players in than have gone out (except Hucks), he''s not swayed by fickle supporter opinion, brave enough to have a clear out of centuries old players and back room staff.  Just waiting for the target man and we''ll be laughing all the way to the play offs.
  4. [quote user="crafty canary"]Don''t worry, there''ll be no buys of any sort before the window closes.[/quote] They will buy someone - but it will  be the usual ''one for the future'' probably, from the lower league.       
  5. Just did a quick websearch and here are the types of Canaries there are.  As you can see the Italian is at the bottom so that must be Lupoli - not sure what his Gibber is, but hopefully it helps get 20 goals a season Border or Border Fancy The speckled Lizard canary The many varieties of Crested canaries. The smaller crested Gloster The large and strong Norwich Fife Yorkshire Stafford The large and sometimes crested Lancashire Columbus Fancy Belgian Hunchback Scotch Fancy Italian Gibber Italicus  
  6. [quote user="TioRio"][quote user="alex_ncfc"][quote user="Delias Well Behaved Devonshire Dirtbox"] GCSE''s dont matter anyhow, just lie on your cv nobody ever checks it I think the grades are getting better because of the % of the coursework that goes towards the final grade, Google Google Google! A* [/quote] Nail hit on the head, my friend. No such thing as Google in my day! [;)] [/quote]   Well actually, if an examiner or teacher suspects that what you''ve written in your coursework is plaugerism, then they actually type some into Google and can find out if it is pretty easily. Quite a few from my school doing the IB exams have been caught for doing that, and as a result they''ve been disqualified. [/quote] Just put a few correct spellings in coursework and any plagiarism wont be detected!  
  7. [quote user="Stone"] Having to endure the moans, groans and abuse very time we pass the ball sideways or backwards - knowing if we lumped it forwards the response would be exactly the same!  eg... ''Oh get the ball up there for christ''s sake! How the hell are we going to score passing backwards!''  ''Oh don''t just lump it forward ! We need to keep possession! [/quote] Hey that me. And I sit in the River end. (forgot to refer to Stone''s hates)
  8. First of all, to be fair, congratulations to all on their GCSE and A level results. However.  I work in a university.  One of the things we do see here is that although the students are still very good, they have not covered the same amount of material that was covered 10 years ago.  Universities are often plugging the gaps in knowledge that is still needed for entry to degree level, but is not covered in the school curricula.  Universities are also having to teach students how to write essays. For myself, I thought my O and A level results were very good and I was in top 15%.  In comparison with grades awarded now, I am in bottom 15%  - but of course this is because today''s students are brainier.  
  9. I think Russell has been missing from midfield.  He always tries to go forward and burst into the box.  Alternatively Chadwick.    
  10. Prefer pretty football - at least if we lose we can say at least norwich play good passing football. Better than hoofing it and still losing. Either way you still need a tall striker.
  11. Dont forget youve got to say something controversial/ridiculous or alternatively insulting for anyone to reply to any posts.  
  12. The club must be laughing at all the fighting on the message board.  Perhaps its distracting them from signing someone - this is far more entertaining.
  13. Roeder has already said he doesnt play with two wingers
