  1. Not that I've ever climbed Everest, but I've met a blind man who did. Anyway, from what I do know of mountain climbing, the decent is the most difficult part. 80% of the accidents happen on the decent. For anyone who is interested, there is a phenomenal climbing documentary called, 'Touching the Void.' I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in either climbing, or human perseverance under astronomically difficult conditions. And good luck to Webber. I'm sure he'll need it. It doesn't matter how prepared you are; if the mountain says no-go, then no one can argue.
  2. The first ‘yo’ is really fun. The second ‘yo’, not so much.
  3. From a fans perspective, having to watch the abject failure over and over is simply exhausting. Becoming emotionally invested at the start of the season, only to have it disintegrate at the pace of having one’s fingernails pulled out, is mind numbing. This is why fans become angry. From a business owner’s perspective. It’s free money. Gain promotion to the PL, spend a few pounds to bolster the team and keep the fans sedated and hope it works out, pocket a few million. Rinse and repeat. We fans are only able to watch it happen…over and over and over and over….. we raise our voices. We make our discontent known. But it just keeps happening. So, the question that must be asked is, throughout all of this abject failure, what is the common denominator?
  4. Unfortunately his stock has plummeted. I doubt we will have any offers for him that will significantly help the balance sheet.
  5. Well done Newcastle. That’s an impressive hall of points considering their pre Christmas shambles.
  6. “I’m already ready to walk out the door. I’m ready for the next stage of my life.’ But they wanted me to stay and I’m incredibly grateful to them for that.” How nonsensical is this comment? That’s like saying, “I was ready to walk out on my wife for the next relationship in my life, but she wanted me to stay and I’m incredibly grateful for that.”
  7. I hear what you are saying and I agree with you on what Webber has done for NCFC 100%. He has rebuilt the club in a manner that is sustainable and attractive to players and staff in it’s own way. However, how can you disregard his comment of: “I’m already ready to walk out the door. I’m ready for the next stage of my life.” My feeling is Webber has done all he can do. His heart is no longer in it and he has signaled to the footballing world that his head is turnable. What player is going to sign for a club who’s footballing director has openly said he has one foot out the door? The stability of the club is now in question. When will 90% become 80%, or 75%? Or, sorry, can’t make the meeting on Monday because I have a phone call with my Sherpa? Delia & Co should find the courage to say thank you and find the next person to build on the growth Webber has begun, rather than wait for it to crumble back to what it was before making a change. Don’t get me wrong, I think Webber has worked wonders. But, his comments, combined with NCFCs current league position, do provoke the question: Was Farke the right one to go, or should it have been Webber? Which one was actually 100% committed to the club? So as much as I acknowledge what Webber has done for NCFC, it’s time for him to clear his desk. If he doesn’t, then the summer transfer window is going to be a circus.
  8. Here's another quote for you: "Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience." - Mark Twain
  9. That's my point. It's insane to believe that lessons are being learned. Since when has NCFC 'sorted the problem positions properly in the PL? When? NEVER! How can any fan look back at the last 6 - 7 years and say progress has been made? We go up. We fall back down. We go up. We fall back down. Same old, same old. We need a CB..... we need a DM...... we need a creative midfielder. If we could only fix the supply ball to Pukki........ It's always the same (desperate) level of need. Maybe we could fix the scouting. Maybe we could develop our own youth. Maybe we could take another two or three seasons to develop a strong spine down the field.... yes..yes.... the developmental route. That mantra stinks of sun burnt hope. Further, what needs to be added to the equation is that the primary driver in NCFC's business model requires the developing and selling of players for profit, hence, we are always going to be a DEVELOPMENTAL club and we will ALWAYS sell out best players to a bigger team, for the right money. The sooner we fans can accept this whole heatedly, the sooner we will come to accept the yo-yo nature of our league position. The challenges you have identified are the same challenges that have been plaguing NCFC for the last 10 years. So, to me, it appears that the same mistakes are being made over and over each season, with the hopes of a different outcome. Hence my comment. It doesn't take an Einstein to figure that out. But it will take one to keep us in the Premier League.
  10. I disagree. Ten years would constitute a 'blip' across a thousand years. Since the Premier League was created in 1992, Norwich have played in it 10 times. That's 30%. For a club our size and how it's operated, I would say that's par for the course.

  12. His silence on the topic speaks volumes. I doubt he would laugh in your face. He probably didn’t know how to console you.
  13. Ouch! Take your true true talk somewhere else!
