  1. That season always springs to my mind. I remember watching Leicester throughout that season and thinking “they’re playing too well to be relegated” and this is the sort of thing I’m hearing about us from other people. However, I just have a horrible feeling it’s too little, too late for us and we’ll either cack out completely or we’ll end up agonisingly close, but ultimately down. Praying I’m wrong and miracles are made
  2. Will be incredibly surprised and disappointed if we get any less than £30-35m given his contract length, obvious talent at this level, further future potential and supposed interest from every top club in the country. Don’t for one minute believe Webber would allow it either. He’s a clever man
  3. Saturday 22nd October 1994 Norwich 4 - 2 QPR Goals from Bowen, Robins, Sheron and an own goal apparently. I went as part of a school trip with St. Williams Primary and remember the elation of winning. Can’t say I remember much of the action itself though! Despite a father that supported Man Utd (even bought me a united lunchbox!) and most classmates supporting more glamorous teams I couldn’t help, but love Norwich right from the beginning. It was my city, so it was my team :)
  4. Sent back the regular fit shirt as it was so wide at the bottom. Got the player fit one delivered to where we’re staying on holiday and it’s much better. Not like the crazy “muscle fit” shirts some teams do. Definitely loving the look of the new kit
  5. Looks a lot lighter in colour here. Out of interest, anyone bother with these ‘player fit’ shirts? Must be selling fairly well as some of the sizes are sold out already (standard and ‘player fit’)
  6. Good move for him. Clear out a few more like Nelson and hopefully we’ll replace with some more exciting prospects. That will do nicely
  7. I remember a Gateway/Gateways? on Plumstead Road when I was a kid.. before it became a Safeway I think.. good times. Couldn’t beat that model shop further down the road though
  8. A good watch. Both came across very well and I must say it makes me feel proud to have these two looking after the club’s interests. Very glad that their faith in SW (and then DF) has been rewarded
  9. Working nights, which in some ways is good as it means I’ll be asleep most of the morning and early afternoon so less time to worry.. unless Norwich give me nightmares, which is entirely possible!
  10. I saw this and hoped the camera would pan to the other party, but no luck. Wondered if it was someone like Boyd who had a couple of run-ins with Max. Who knows
  11. Must say I found it very difficult to get over that Reading equaliser at the death. Definitely didn’t sleep well that night and it still annoys me, but I’m sure the players felt much worse. That equaliser against Wigan has gone some way to restoring some calmness and I’ve got a feeling we’ll see a slightly different lineup/formation for the next game, which will hopefully bring a touch more control and creativity. Feeling positive
  12. Good old York. Most of those transfers have been loans I believe. They certainly need them to start performing or things are going to be very, very bad and they will be moving into a nice, big, shiny new stadium whilst playing non-league football
  13. Alex previously spoke about the Jarvis signing adding pace to opposite flank so I can''t see him wanting to sell the only pace on the right side. More importantly, in money terms Nathan still has the most potential to be an extremely valuable asset. One decent run of performances and suddenly his value will rocket in my opinion. He''s young, British, a starter and standout performer for the England under 21''s, a Premier League regular, pacy, tricky, decent shot etc. One decent run of form and he will be firmly back in the spotlight and there will be rumours galore. Then if we have to sell him, it will at least be for top dollar.
  14. [quote user="Lessingham Canary"]Yes well done Giallanza, who else does he have on his books he could point in our direction, any strikers ?[/quote] According to Transfermarket he Giallanza Sport (his company) has these players: Fabian Frei Central Midfield Switzerland 27 1.FSV Mainz 05 2019 £3.50m Timm Klose Centre Back Switzerland Germany 27 Norwich City 2019 £2.10m Geoffrey Tréand Right Wing France 30 FC St. Gallen 2016 £525k Gilles Yapi Central Midfield Cote d''Ivoire 33 FC Zürich 2016 £350k Oliver Bozanic Central Midfield Australia Slovenia 27 Melbourne Victory - £350k Philippe Koch Right-Back Switzerland 24 FC Zürich 2016 £350k Nico Abegglen Centre Forward Switzerland 25 FC Wohlen 2017 £210k Matias Vitkieviez Right Wing Switzerland Uruguay 30 Servette FC 2018 £105k Scott Chipperfield Left Midfield 40 Can''t say I know anything about any of them
  15. 4 losses in a row for them apparently. Pretty sure they play Newcastle next too.. Could be interesting.
  16. I want him at the club even more now. He sounds like the absolute epitome of how people in general (not just footballers) should be.
  17. [quote user="Darth Bor"]His nose suggests he''s up for a scrap. I like it.[/quote] Looks like a ''proper'' defender doesn''t he? lol
  18. I can understand the new Stephen Fry role. However, I have no idea how we''ll immediately benefit from Mr Smith joining as a Director. It sounds like a nice little apprenticeship for him either way. At least he''s a fan and maybe he''ll become important in the future. Looks like Delia is ensuring that someone ''inherits'' her club position anyway:P
  19. [quote user="mr footy"]Norwich are a ok club doing ok in this league. We have ok owners and ok ground.Players are ok not great but ok.At start of season it would be ok to finish fourth bottom.We are on course to do this, just.To get to next level ie good not ok team is going to take time.
