  1. Midland Canaries do (well did) exist.... they have a flag and everything!!!! Used to be a member before moving to Oz, had a team in the supporters group 5-aside, marvellous time in malaysia and all sorts. Lots of people spread over Midlands area. If he is still doing it, it is run by a lovely fella in Cannock, who at the moment is starting to climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. If you go to an away game look for the Flag.
  2. Downunder we get Foxtel - about $70 per month with the sports package and IQ (Sky+), due to time difference maybe a case of record and watch delayed. Last season there was loads of Premiership games on, Yet to see how many City games they will show,with the internet and streaming as well should be packed with fun....... will be a season of wife management (Happy wife happy life!)
  3. If you are on Facebook check out the ''Norwich City Canaries Down Under'' group. 48 of us so far, a few in the Brisbane region. We beat them at the cricket and the rugby, therefore making Norwich fans the only succesful yellow and green clad fans in Oz!
  4. I love the fact they have kept under the radar. I am so fed up of headline making mgt. Let Delia and McNally make headlines and detract from the team. Let lambert keep his mantra of support and positivity..... Let Ian and the team play and be focussed
  5. I think he should already be deemed as a legend. He came ind without sending us bankrupt he has displayed some of the best mgt skills you could ever want. He has worked with the board in completely understanding the clubs position, weaved majic on his transfers, man managed every individual, kept a mantra all year supporting his players, constantly backing them. Has anyone heard a negative comment from him? He has fought for his team and let the players and the backroom staff get on with their jobs. He is a true players manager. He fought to get people to our club who wanted to be there and he knows it is our club, believes it should be our club. He should be used as an example of worldclass mgt. Who knows what is going to happen, he will hopefully stay with us for many years. However as long as he stays for at least next season he should always be treated as an NCFC legend. If things do go pear next year, let''s please remember what he has done and not be too quick to turn on him like some have with legends of the pass. Appreciate what he (and all those others so many are quick to slag - worthy, gunn, green) and thank them for some of the best moments in our life''s. Finally our club has the togetherness that we have been missing for so long........ And I love it! OTBC (sorry bit of a rant)
  6. 2.38pm in Manly, Sydney.... got up at 7am too watch match and have been drunk ever since!!! GET IN!!!!!
  7. I loved Adam Drury''s comments in the EDP. Maybe one of the reasons it was a good reception is that some of those who left were the moaners. I can also see all sides of the argument and everyone has their own reasons and situations for leaving early. The problem with seats is that we all get disrupted (ahh god bless the old days!). However what I cannot stand are the self proclaimed loyal fans who mutter underhand comments to their mates about how proper fans wouldn''t arrive late for kick off, sit there contradicting themselves all through the game and hurling abuse at players and then being the most loyal fans get up and storm out when we go 2-0 down shouting how bad we are ........ Good work fella. Some of us travel further than Old Catton to support our team and get behind them. Do us a favour and stay at home and swear at your radio so we, and hopefully your son, don''t have to listen to you. Am proud of our support and love having 24,000 fans at the fortress.... but sometimes would prefer 17,000 some should just stay at home.
  8. I would like to thank everyone for their comments on this matter. It was interesting to see that we were not the only ones caught out. I would also like to thank the club, off line we have been discussing with them and credit where credit is due they are working with us to try and get a positive outcome for all, so thank you Mr Gough and Norwich City, restoring my faith in you. Trust me I think my mate has learnt his lesson and from now on will be renewing in person the first day available, his son pratically disowned him and he has been bombarded with abuse from me and his brother. However in his defence not everyones lifes are simple. so thanks again to all, especially the club. OTBC
  9. Interesting, seems others have nearly been caught out with this. Til 1010 - will mention it to my mate and perhaps he will contact you
  10. No because then I could have cancelled. bit of continuity would be nice
  11. Has anyone else been caught out by the club not automatically renewing season tickets this year? Mate has just got home from travelling to find he has lost his and his sons season ticket and they have been sold on. Last season they renewed automatically so he rightly (or wrongly) assumed that this year would be the same. Has now meant that after 10 years of 4 of us sitting together, travelling from the midlands and London to watch games and being able to support him in taking his lad to football when he had work commitments we will be split up. Club does not seem to want to help us on the matter ..... GUTTED and a bit disgusted.
  12. Brought up S.Norfolk now Sydney, Australia - 10,460 miles
  13. Sydney - Approx 10,400 miles from Carrow Road. Season ticket in lower Barclay...... don''t get back for many games
  14. does any one remember a story years ago about butterworth and culverhouse having a fall out? the mysteries round a knee injury? might of been a rumour but hardly surprising that he has left.
  15. Kind of got my back up that last one Jas.  Will someone who is an HR guru put an end to this, my understanding is:- 1) You cannot be sacked unless having a driving license is critical to the job - i''m sure MP can afford a taxi to and from the training ground. 2) If you are imprisoned you can be sacked for non-attendance depending on what sort of company you work for ............. and how good your union is .......... but he is not in prison. 3) He has been fined in the courts .......... and hopefully a big fine from the club of 4 times that for draging their name through it, he should also then be fined for being out til 4am in Mercy (he should be strung up for being in Mercy!) he should also be berated for having the nerve to go out in the city on a day that we had lost. 4) Like everyone else has said, he has made a big mistake and been caught.  I think he probably knows he is an idiot (I wouldn''t like to tell Roeder) and yes he shouldn''t of done it.  Young man at Dunston was right to phone the police All in all he has done wrong, he has been punished, he should feel a right ####, he hopefully knows he has been very lucky that he did not have an accident, he should learn from it and we should let him get on with his life and football.  
  16. It was a top weekend and thank you to all who organised it.  My legs are still hurting from playing football on the Sunday - maybe I should play more tha once a year! Has anyone got any pics of the banners?  If so can you send them to me or let me know where they are posted? Seems I nearly gave the stewards a heart attack on the banner parade when I ran to give my girlfriend in the Barnsley end a kiss!  Funny Also it was a privelage to share the pitch with the ''Forces 2 Canaries''.  Support them on their monopoly 08 fundraiser. http://www.forces2canaries.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=216&Itemid=1
  17. Colossus!!!  More like calamity.  Mrs is a Barnsley fan, if I am not watching Norwich we are watching Barnsley. Saw him play at Oakwell the other week and they literally laughed him off, and it has been like that for most of the season, yesterday was the best I have ever seen him play, he is a bit like a puppy chasing a ball most days. he is only a younu''un and Simon Davey reckons he is one for the furture, but he only has a couple of chances left
  18. For those who don''t know Rotherham United ''The Millers'' have only a few weeks to raise £1 million otherwise they will go into liquidation and close down.  We work with a Rotherham fan in Derby who is an editor of their Fanzine and the poor old bhoy is distraught, because of this he talked us into holding a collection at Saturdays game against Derby.  Some of you might of seen us, Me and and my girlfriend (Barnsley fan) on the approach at Riverside and we would like to thanks everyone who contributed, you were all brilliant. I would like to let you know we raised £751.45 in an hour and when we told Steve who was at the Rotherham game in Swindon the soft git nearly cried!! Some of you may think (and some asked yesterday) why bother, however first Rotherham and who next? Those of you who want to know more or want to contribute can goto  http://www.rotherhamunited-mad.co.uk/ or phone the campaign hotline 01709 512 434  Up the City and I can''t wait to goto work tomorrow in Derby and bid all 1200 rams fans that I work with a very pleasant morning! many thanks again OTBC
  19. Agree with everyone, get Steeno back as guest of honour for one of the games. Get him to start off On The Ball City. Quality bloke, quality shot, quality song and he is still keeping the green flag floyin high
  20. Not negative, but constructive criticsm through observation. I''ve noticed it as well, lob it down the line try for a flick on and then get on the defensive because we''ve lost the ball. Its not just throw ins but in alot of our play we don''t seem to have any movement so don''t find any free space and it all gets a bit condensed. Sounds silly I know but i think we also play the ball to feet too much instead of balls for people to run on too. If you play it to feet you have to zip it into something, we tend to just tap it
  21. There are still a few of us out here and we are in a group of 13 cin Langkawi, still flying the flag, the locals love us! The favourite and most popular quote is ''next year me is canary fan!!'' Quality. PS still in all the papers as well
  22. We''re not worthy are you going to the gala dinner with the players, management, board and Malaysian PM? Is actually on my birthday, not a bad way to celebrate out for a meal with that lot. I will be the drunk at the back of the room singing
