  1. I have to say I would be worried if I were a QPR fan.

    Big name signings but the club has no substance behind it. No fans, tinpot ground - the "stars" will want out the minute QPR look like struggling.

    SWP is not very good imo. He hasn''t been since he went to Chelsea, there''s a reason a Villa or a Fulham hasn''t taken a chance on him.

    Barton arriving at Norwich would actually provoke me to boycott the club until he was out. The bloke is a thug, anyone who can stub a lit cigarette/cigar out in a young bloke''s eye should be banned from football. As well as being a thug, he is also an arrogant cock and will surely p*ss off some of the other egos sitting in your dressing room. I think that the trouble he brings with him far outweighs the quality of his ability and I genuinely wouldn''t want him near Carrow Road.

    Anton ferdinand is really not a very good player and imo only has a career because of his surname.

    I do rate Luke Young, however he is 32... getting on a bit.

    DJ Campbell will be fantastic if on form and sh*t if not, same as the rest of his career.

    I''m glad we haven''t made any fanfare signings, we have no pressure, no one expects us to survive and teams like Chelsea and Stoke didn''t give us the respect we deserve and we were so close to making them pay the price for it.

    If it weren''t for some very questionable refereeing decisions we would have 5 or 6 points on the board already.

    We will finish above you this season, no doubt in my mind about it.

    And your ludicrous point saying we play similar football to you?! Ermmmmmm - NO!!! We play similar flowing, attacking football to Swansea imo - not one dimensional give it to Taraabt and watch him run s**t!!!

    We are a far better side than you at playing attractive football, we had 4 points off you last season and would have been 6 if not for Hoolahan screwing up the penalty.

  2. Thanks, this is brilliant guys.

    I actually have the footsteps of Mr Kurtz waiting for me when I get home from the summer school Im working at. Along with Heart of D''kness which although fiction, is based on Conrad''s travels in the Congo so should be an interesting piece of background reading.

    The state of Africa is a book I''ve been meaning to get around to for a while, and white gold sounds like an interesting read too.

    Purple: Thanks for the tip on Sven Lindqvist, the theory sounds quite interesting and I can already see a way to link that in with the apathy of Western media to the plight of the DRC today and the complete lack of media coverage on the horrors of the conflict there.

  3. Hi guys,

    Thanks for the responses!

    Congo: Thanks for the offer, I''ll definitely take you up on that if you don''t mind! What exactly is it you do in the Rep Congo?

    Legend: That would be great - I''m actually directing my study towards the modern day situation and linking the current instability to the power vacuum left by the Belgians and their authoritarian rule.

    What did you study by the way?


  4. It is a pain but Google chrome is far superior to Firefox and IE. It simply isn''t worth using another browser just for the forum - of course if this website weren''t so dated then it might actually work regardless of which browser you use!

    I acccidentally started up IE the other day, and was shocked to find it takes about 20mins to open a single page (Exaggeration, but it''s a bloody long time when compared to Chrome!)

  5. I''m moving over to Norwich in about a year, once I have graduated from uni.

    I''ve grown up as an exile, but I love the people in Norfolk more than anything, for the most part they are a different class to anywhere else, much more friendly and laid back... My girlfriend said as much when I took her over for the promotion parade!
