    I think that a good percentage of Championship winners survive in the Premiership, for 1 season, at least. TBH, I feel more confident with Webber & Farke than I did with McNally & Lambert although at the time, I thought that those two were as good as we could really hope for; at the time, they were excellent but talk to any Villa, Blackburn, Wolves or Stoke fan and I don't that they have the same regard for what Lambert did with their respective clubs.
  2. A good few people, including me, often use the free parking at the smaller local stations to get to the Norwich match for a relatively hassle-free way to get in and out of the city. Greater Anglia Railways have are now charging £3 a day to park at places such as Acle, Brundall, Haddiscoe, Hoveton & Wroxham, Newmarket, North Walsham, Reedham, which were previously free. Their pathetic excuse was to "bring these car parks in line with others on our network". Is that even an excuse ? Couldn't they operate with some car parks being free ? https://www.edp24.co.uk/business/greater-anglia-commuters-face-new-parking-charges-1-6139315
  3. The car parks are not supervised. By your logic, ASDA, Tesco etc. should also charge their customers for using their car parks, which "need to be maintained and supervised etc". The idea is that you entice people into buying your products and services, not put the price up so that alternatives are even more viable.
  4. So, you're OK with £3 being charged where it never had been before? Would you be equally as blasé if the £4.20 rail fare had gone up £3 ?
  5. That is a very valid point but this is an NCFC board, so I kept it relevant to those that go on match day.
  6. This wasn't meant to be a post about who can or can't afford £3 to leave their car at the station, it's was trying to highlight people before our first home game, so that they can, if they wish, chose an alternative. I also wanted to highlight the underhandedness of it. People only really talk about the price of the ticket and rarely include the car park cost as well. You can park at Rose Lane for £6 if you can return before 6pm and it's only £8.20 all day, which compares well with £7.20 for 1 person leaving their car at Brundall and travelling by train. At a time when we're meant to be encouraged to travel less in our cars on more on public transport, hiking up rail fares and charging additionally seems to go against that.
  7. That's merely your opinion. There'd be uproar if train fares increased by 71% but that's what's happened through the back door. It's now cheaper to park at Rose Lane.
  8. What's your point ? Norwich getting relegated to League One was a First World problem too, however, this board is specifically Norwich City FC-related discussion, therefore, inherently, nearly all First World problems.
  9. The article states: "I'm thinking 30kish" So, all that expense for another 3k supporters ? Hardly worth it. The Watling stand could be rebuilt to a larger one and the South stand was built with a view to adding a 2nd tier.

    Call me conservative or whatever but I'm against betting outfits sponsoring anything, so the sooner they get off our shirts backs (see what I did there ?) the better. That said, the bloody ground is covered in money-wasting promotional banners.
  11. "L1pswich" made me laugh. I was going to go with "Ipswich (R)"

    Maddison to Spurs....

    That wasn't Coventry's fault, you can't blame them for trying to win every game. It was the football league's fault for allowing games to be staggered towards the end of the season and carry on after the season should have finished.

    Wilder Leaving Sheff U ?

    Yeah, I just corrected it when the notice of your reply came up.

    Wilder Leaving Sheff U ?

    What did Wilder do that Farke didn't to get the Champ Manager of the Season?

    Another gem from Paul Lambert

    Portsmouth have to be 2nd favourites with, hopefully, Donny making the 3rd spot.

    I was always under the impression that Norwich missed out on a number of European campaigns but, according to Wiki, Norwich only missed out on 1, for the League Cup win in '85: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984–85_Football_League#Final_league_tables_and_results They didn't qualify in '87, missing out by 1 place: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1986–87_Football_League#Final_league_tables_and_results They also didn't qualify in '89, again missing out by 1 place: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1988–89_Football_League#Final_table

    Yes, Ipswich's Cup win in Europe was the second-tier competition, the UEFA Cup, not the proper competition, the European Cup, therefore, Europe's best were already in the competition above that in which Ipswich competed. Also to put fatty Brazil correct, Norwich won the League Cup twice. Furthermore, no one, including bouncing-Brazil, has defined "big" with regards to football clubs. Until a definition is given and agreed upon, talk about biggest clubs is merely subjective.

    What price Webber?

    Surely Webber could do better than Man U.

    Home, hosed and promoted with six games to go.

    But we didn't know that at the time and Norwich's points over and above 84 may have been part of Leed's change in mindset/performance.
  20. Half way though the season, things were looking quite rosey for Leeds !
  21. Liverpool earnt more than Man C, even though they were 1 place below them. Newcastle earnt £6m more than the two clubs immediately above them. Go figure !
  22. We MUST get a piano wheeled out before kick-off and at half-time !!

    Championship Table

    Haha. I started this thread because I noticed that I was still wanting to look at the Championship table and see Norwich at the top of it ! Hope we're still there end of this month.
