    Is today's game sold out?

    If there was over 2k empty seats in the ground today I don''t know where they were, thought there was nearer 26k before it was announced.
  2. Just back from the game and I''m still struggling to understand how we managed to lose, we battered them especially in the second half and wouldn''t have been flattered had we have won 5-0. Only critisicm from me is that we were far to wasteful in and around the box. Hull were a very poor team and while they got away with it today they won''t be winning away again for a very long time playing like that.

    Grant Holt and Hoolahan...

    [quote user="King Keano"]They are all doing very well thanks...Scotland has already got 2 in 5 which is pretty good retuen considering he''s not fit...Priskin has 3 goals, not bad considering he''s not played through the middle alot this season...Wickham overated, try telling that to the Cardiff fans that saw him play last weekend![/quote]Seem to remember when we beat Scunthorpe your fans were saying it''s only Scunthorpe so does that mean todays result was poor for you?

    Todays Attendance.

    Just been looking at the online ticket sales and there is only about 500 tickets left, assuming Hull have sold their allocation we could be looking at a crowd of over 26k today. Always thought that the tickets would sell as the season went on, the decision to install the extra seats will look better as time goes on if we continue to flourish in this league.

    Last night was my first experience of The Butcher Of Colney live and in the flesh and I have to say I was mightily impressed. He had all the numbers at his fingertips, answered every question fully and generally gave the impression of being in total control. I''d be happy to have him running my business!

    His answer to the student was pretty solid. NCFC is a business, and one which was technically insolvent a year ago, so giving tickets away makes no economic sense. Yes, we might be encouraging future generations of support, but that will be of no relevance if the club ceases to exist. I thought that the student made his original point well, before the thrill of being on the soapbox got to him and he started to call for boycotts of games.

    [/quote]Did he say whether or not we are any closer to finding investment ?[/quote]

     

    No, but he made it very clear that part of the rationale behind Stephen Fry joining the Board was his network of contacts which may bear fruit at some point.

    He also said that there was a 7 year plan to stabilise the club and get it to the point of being a Premiership regular, but that the increasing divide meant that it may need to be accelerated. He also said that the Board had agreed to every request that Lambert has made to sign a player.

    [/quote]Cheers, for the first time in ages I feel confidence in the way the club is being run and hopefully we can secure some investment in the not to distant future.

    Leon Barnett

    [quote user="cityislife"]west brom paid 2.5 mil so doubt it, doc made too many fouls just outside (and inside) the area. I dont know how many times hes been sent off.[/quote]He''s out of contract in the summer and will probably be sold for less than 500k as a result, at that price I''d expect us to be in the running to sign him permanently.

    Leon Barnett

    Out of contract at the end of the season so we could probably get him for a reasonable fee in January, sounds like he''d like to stay here and if he continue in the same vein would be a good signing.

  12. [quote user="Dan Druff"]I haven''t been away for some time, but I have to say that out of 40 plus away games over the years, there have only been a few occasions when I thought our fans were in good voice. Too many families on a nice day out, quietly observing the proceedings, while me and my mates are shouting ourselves hoarse. Even goal celebrations can be somewhat subdued at times. Our fans bear no comparison vocally with the likes of Millwall''s travelling mob, that''s for sure.[/quote]Have to agree with that, there are plenty of teams around with far more vocal passionate fans than us. Went to Charlton last year the day we got promoted and the atmosphere was very good but in general I think we are quiet especially at home.

    Predictions for Preston

    Never do well there, 2-0 to PNE sadly.

    Donny tonight

    [quote user="Big Slob"]Drury in the first half was getting cut to shreds. Holt was very poor again, i''d play Martin and Jackson on saturday. Crofts or best player again in my opinion.[/quote]I personally don''t think Martin and Jackson will work, they didn''t look good against Watford and it wasn''t until Holt came on that we looked more like scoring. Holt is either struggling for fitness or he''s struggling against the better defenders in this league, I always felt that we needed to sign another big striker in the summer.

    Donny Score prediction

    Think this will be a toughie, my heart says we''ll get a point but my head says 2-1 to Donny.

    563 Donny tickets sold...

    [quote user="Resident Leeds Fan Jonny!"][quote user="shefcanary"]I rang Norwich ticket office this morning and they were quoting about 650 away tickets sold.  I rang to check that tickets were being sold on the door on the night and they confirmed this, so I''m going now and given the large number of Norwich fans based in South Yorkshire I think 1,000 is achievable.As for Ilderton, its been a long time since I''ve been so angry I''ve been close to being kicked out of a pub but watched that match on Sky, and having only had 3 pints I still stood in front of the screen and ranted at him as he left the pitch.  I said something along the lines of "You''ll never ref another Norwich match again".  Shows how little I know - less than 5 months later and he is in charge again.  I''ll give him one bad decision only before I pile in!    [/quote]Large number of Norwich fans based in South Yorkshire??? Your joking right? Never in my 26 years of trudging the valleys and peaks of my great county have I ever seen a Norwich fan with a Yorkshire accent lmao.....oh dear the comedy.And 650 tickets sold! Cmon you can do better than that. We''re taking 6,700+ fans to Barnsley, although it''s a Yorkshire derby and not that far I''m sure a club with Norwich''s stature can manage more than a poultry 650.[/quote/]Even the daftest Norwich fans would admit that Leeds have more fans than us and are always likely to take more fans away but it''s also fair to say that any Norwich fans travelling from Norfolk will have to endure a hideous 3 hour journey to get to Donny and considering all this anything around a thousand is not a bad turnout. If it had been on a Saturday I have no doubt we would have sold our full allocation.

    Barnsley Fans

    I think it depends where you were in the stadium whether you thought they made much noise, I was in Area A of the Lower Barclay and could hardly hear them from there.

    Play offs - realistic?

    [quote user="CallsignViper"]Were you at Forest kdncfc? That was a terrific game. Best I''ve seen us play in a long time.

    I''ll still be please with anything 12th and above this season but am very pleased (and if i''m honest pleasantly surprised) with our start to the season and some of the football we''re playing. Would be great to pick up 4 or 6 points from these next two away games. Do that and everything is looking very rosey in the Canaries garden.[/quote]No wasn''t at Forest, my assumption is purely based on all the home games. Maybe we''ll up the ante a bit when we play the better sides here. Forest are on paper the best side we have played so hopefully we''ll rise to the occasion when the better teams come here.
  19. kdncfc

    Play offs - realistic?

    I think we have a chance but we don''t have enough pace or flair in the side to beat the top teams imo, we look a fairly solid unit that won''t lose to many games but we lack a Huckerby type player that makes things happen. Mcnamee is ok but I don''t see him winning us as many points as Hucks did if he was a regular starter. While we have looked good in patches we haven''t seen a particularly exciting game thus far, if we are to beat the better teams even at home we will need to be much sharper up front than we were yesterday. Martin scored a cracking goal but did very little else and Holt is either still struggling with his fitness or is struggling against the better defenders he is now coming up against.
  20. If he did say anything racist it was out of order but if we had a few more like him the atmosphere in the stadium would be a lot better and more intimidating for the the other team. We are far to nice.

    Biased much?

    He needs to read the match stats, 56% possesion for us with 13 shots to their 4 and 2 corners to their 1. We were pretty average for much of the time but were still much better than them, I''m very relieved that we didn''t get Robins in as manager if that''s the kind of shite they serve up every week.
