    If you do go to North Norfolk it is worth doing one of the seal boat trips from Blakeney. Kids love it. 

    Each to their own but Horsey is free, and you can watch the seals at your own leisure. Totally free, and a nice walk amongst the dunes.

    I did Blakeney as a kid, and I do remember enjoying it, but I really like Horsey :classic_biggrin:

    Please show your workings.

    Cricket is a sedentary activity. It’s just blokes standing in a field for a week. If you can’t play it in drizzling rain it isn’t a sport. In fact, sandwich making is closer to a sport than cricket.


  3. Second effort:

    Pukki graphic nicked off twitter - I don't have it, so can't contact the creator (Stuart Greaves) to let him know but if anyone knows him then please tell him to let me know on here if he objects to me using it in this way.

    How does any read websites like that? 

    Two pop up video adverts, a banner ad pinned to the bottom of the page, a massive thing for their instagram, all for about 4 sentences of actual 'content.'

    I would guess many of us use Adblock so only see the 4 lines of content

    Brexit or no Brexit deal or no deal we’re all ****ed anyway! Water resources are at an all time low across the planet, we’re at the limit of agricultural production where all wealthy countries are buying land in Africa and South American to produce food to cover demand, we’ve drier summers with bigger bush fires throwing more debris and CO2 into the atmosphere, melting ice caps are letting trapper hydrates into the atmosphere, and global debt doesn’t balance global wealth........it’s not looking great is it! Who cares about Brexit....we need to start thinking on a global scale of unity not cutting ourselves off!

    Just in terms of agricultural production, we are nowhere near the limits of what the land can produce. We use land inefficiently is the major problem - cattle farming uses ridiculous amounts of resources to produce beef and accounts for approx 80% of deforestation in the Amazon (in Brazil).

    There is a grouse shooting moor in Scotland, owned by some Arab sheikh... reserved for the wealthy and privileged to pursue draconian bloodsports. It’s quite literally the size of Greater London. Only 13% of UK land is actually built on. Land capacity is not the issue, land use is. Globally, cash crops like coffee and cocoa are one of the major issues but again its land use issues.

    Totally agree with the the sentiment of your post though


  6. Long term plan is moving abroad, but not so easy when we have a 2 year old who is the only grandchild - still on the cards - we've both now done what we needed to in order to automatically qualify for a permanent visa through skilled jobs list so Australia still beckons but it's probably still 5 or 6 years or so into the future.

    It’s all kicking off on the island . Who’s watching ?

    Nobody with a brain.

    If there's any hand grenades involved though, give me a shout and I'll have a look.

    Srbeny wasn't an 18-year-old. 

    So if you're over 18 you don't need to play games to keep match fit? And what about when Todd wasn't in the team - was he playing U23 games?

    If Idah isn't in the first team squad, he'll be out on loan presumably.

    As much as we'd all love to see Idah make it in the first team squad as the 'third striker', he would still need to play Under-23 football to keep his match fitness up as he wouldn't get a huge amount of minutes in the first team.

    Pretty sure Srbeny played very little, if any u23s....

    Taking Buendia, Aarons, Godfrey, Cantwell and Lewis out of the equation, this is a potential U23 team for next season:

    Mair

    Nizet Odusina Bushiri Barkarsson

    Payne Gilmour

    Fitzpatrick Adshead Power

    Idah

    Idah is being given the chance with the first team squad over pre-season so he may not be available for U23s if he takes it.

    Need three keepers and Oxborough will go out on loan, or could even be sold. Third choice is generally an experienced player who chips in with coaching. 

     

    Webber also said McGovern has been instrumental in the dressing room and being a model-pro that helps the culture. 


  12. I sincerely hope the design of the shirt is as bold as the pattern on training top - Love me a garish kit design. 90s kits were sublime (on the whole - not Norwich specific) - Pleased to see clubs moving back in that direction and away from naff plain ones.

    Leitner's an interesting one. Pretty sure that before his injury he was statistically one of the very top players in the Championship

    He was the top midfielder in terms of passing by a country mile. He'd completed over 85% of his passes and that was on a significant amount more pass attempts than any other player. I forget the specific stats and can't find them through a cursory google search, but he was unbelievable.

    Interestingly through doing the cursory google search, I learned that Godfrey was our best passer this season with 89+% completion
