  1. The is a real chance that after tuesday we could be just one point behind That lot "down the road" !!  Having said that Hull are above us and have a game in hand so we will need to be at our best. If this keeps up we could be in a position that if we win at portaloo road It might put paid to any chance that they had to get in the play offs. Now wouldn''t that be just brilliant!!?? ( I am trying to avoid any mention of the P word where we are concerned!
  2. Why oh why do we do this?  If The smiths and the rest of the board had all turned out i am sure someone would have found away of complaining about them all sitting smugly in front of the media Only one year after telling us they had the right man!  Or "Look there''s Delia looking for a bit of publicity for her new book/tv show!"  I have seen Many managers introduced by one (senior) member of a football club board so Having the Chaiman introduce the new manager is the way it should be done IMO. Please stop looking for silly things to moan about.
  3. Hareide asserted that in order to not only stay ahead at the domestic level, but also perform better at the European level, Rosenborg would have to become more cynical and focus more on defensive skill, while still maintaining the offensive play that had made the team so strong in the first place. The new manager also highlighted the need to renew the aging squad, whose continuity had been another key to the club''s success; many of the players had been in the club since the start of the 1990s. In a controversial move, Hareide began this process by releasing the popular Bent Skammelsrud, who subsequently retired. Under new leadership, Rosenborg laid waste to the league, losing only three games and winning 14 points ahead of runners-up Bodø/Glimt. The club claimed its seventh Double, again defeating Bodø/Glimt in the cup final. Despite failing to qualify for the Champions League, Rosenborg had enjoyed another great season and it looked like Hareide''s beginning reforms were paying off, but 2003 turned out to be his one and only season at the club as he accepted an offer to lead the Norwegian national team in December of that year.
  4. any thoughts on this?  Could be ok but not sure what experience he has at club management But He IS a national coach so must be in with a shout IF HE IS INTERESTED
  5. The problem is this, IF Delia starts making press comment or appearing on telly she is accused of being attention seking. if she leaves the running of the club to the people who are PAID TO DO IT then she is accused of all sorts ofterrible things . For Gods sake grow up the lot of you. Sorry Wiz i didn''t mean you!!
  6. [quote user="BlyBlyBabes"]Or do they think it''s not their fault? Maybe we should just norfolkise the club as prt of the Icenian Revolution, since they say it''s ours. And invite President Hugo Chavez to sponsor us in solidarity. Now wouldn''t that be a riot? It would be massive PR and petrodollars outdoing even Abramovich. And we could beam every match to Venezuela. OTBC - sorry! [:-*] The board will go when someone takes over the club and not before. so live with it and let them get on with sorting it out until someone with enough money comes along       [/quote]
  7. Grant has not said he is off only that he will consider his possition!  What happens if he decides it is the players fault, drops Hucks and a few more and plays the kids and fringe players? He is on a contract and might wait until he is pushed.
  8. Any News on Dave the Striker? It seems to have gone Very quiet!!??
  9. there is nothing (other than an opinion) to suggest there is a problem with the Turners. I find it amazing how people on this board are quick to moan about anything but (in some cases very slow to praise). If the Turners are going to cut back on the playing side then they are going the wrong way about it!! New players and new and in some cases very long contracts do not save money!! Please leave them alone!!
  10. well said that man,  Some people just have no patience!!
  11. [quote user="give grant a chance"] Funny that we are linked with a Celtic player, a club who want Huckerby. I think that a swap is on. [/quote] Why?
  12. Maybe we should sign him again, and Russel,and crow,and sutton!!
  13. The star??  say''s the guy player is going to Sheffield united
  14. seems to me that some people are only happy when they are moaning!! Grant has inherited a small, under achieving squad with probably 30% of the players needing to be moved on. He will not be able to wave a magic wand. Last night we had 3 players not really fit but willing to play, not ideal but at least some of the squad have the heart for a fight. Now we just need ALL the fans/supporters to stick with the new manager while he REBUILDS the squad and we might just get somewhere!!
  15. THIS IS SCARY We have been here too many times this season only to be disapointed. here''s hoping things are on the change!!
  16. [quote user="Yellow fever"]we will never change the board - we have to get rid of them many criticise me but they do not argue just insult BOGO [/quote] I will not insult. I will however ask you what planet you are on? This is not an insult because if you are on a nice planet a long way from here then that will be fine!!
  17. All this nonsense on this Board Makes me sad!. Already we are Moaning about the manager Before we have either Heard from him or seen one of his selected teams in action. It just seems to me that SOME people on this board are so entrenched in their dislike of the Board of Directors. Short of Putting Curbishley in charge and then the whole board stepping down some people were never going to be satisfied. I do not understand what the problem is, If Grant is a cheap/poor option why Would Bowen and or Crook be wonderfull? Come to that why would Tilson be a great manager? He has done very little at this level let alone at a higher one!! Parkinson has Hull in freefall So (SENSIBLY) who was left? Still we could always have gone for Mobray!
  18. He has been at West ham for a while now and has been involved in them getting promoted and into europe. he was at AFC Bournemouth before that as asistant Manager. I have been told by a hammers fan that he is highly thought of. Oh yes, and he was here for 2 years. If we are going to go with a ubtried Manager (kevin Bond, Crook,Bowen ETC then he would be as good as any i reckon
  19. As I read it he is a long way off fit but is hoping to get fit in the near future.
  20. [quote user="iwan for manager"]you need a new name. I cant bear this about Sutton. Why Villa. I was hoping that if Bowen came in he would get him, this is a disater the final nail in the coffin. [/quote] Why??
  21. my previous post gives the wrong impression!!. I do not believe being a football supporter gives someone the right to hurl personal abuse at the players of our club. Yes the player reacted badly just as people do when someone abuses the in a pub or a night club. He is human after all.
  22. [quote user="St.John Cooper"]He did not even have the pride or dignity to resign and save the board who have supported him a hard job. I think it says something on him as a person and his managerial style. That is GUTLESS! There are no thank you''s from me, only a regret that this did not happen 1 year ago. He has taken us back over the last 18 months and I can not thank NW for this. Thank god the board has finally reacted even if its a yeat to late, what do you say Dicky etc.....? or will you be protesting to have Nigel back? The board have seen the light have you? Onwards and upwards OTBC St.John [/quote]Gutless people having a go at a guy who has not been able to reply and has behaved with great dignity. He has gone! now for gods sake get behind the club and stop this nonsense now
  23. [quote user="Yellow fever"]No not until we have got rid of the rest of them. Most fans want the board out too and we should go for it whilst we are on a winning streak. The protests must continue![/quote] Please tell us on what survey you base this? I can not believe that you are serious??? This shows what is wrong in this club at the moment, there are a small minority that have allowed a little bit of power to go to their heads. Please understand, you DO NOT speak for the majority of norwich supporters. All we want now is stability, a new start and some entertainment!
