  1. No Quarter

    Oh come on!

    This has been a long, hard season. Our team of Championship and League 1 players have played the best football of their careers, week in week out. Following that final big push at Spurs which pretty much guaranteed our survival, yes they have dropped the performance level slightly. Is that not to be completely expected, and totally understandable?? If you are punching way above your weight week in week out, of course it''ll catch up with you, especially when the pressure is off. As Lambert has stated, what we have achieved this season is nothing short of a miracle, especially as we were favourites to go down. They must be KNACKERED! So, before we bitch too much about losing against some of Europes top players, lets just think about what we HAVE achieved this season.

  2. Quite like the yellow submarine idea, although I would say to just leave the lyrics as the Beatles wrote them.  Everybody knows the words, everybody knows the song, and singing "we all live in a yellow submarine" is funny!  Plus, as we are sneaking unnoticed up the league, we have got some submarine qualities anyway!So we sailed on to the sun,

    Till we found the sea green,

    And we lived beneath the waves,

    In our yellow submarine,

    We all live in a yellow submarine,

    yellow submarine, yellow submarine,

    We all live in a yellow submarine,

    yellow submarine, yellow submarine.

    Bronze statue for Fash campaign

    There has been talk of a bronze statue being erected at Carrow Road to celebrate a club legend. I think Justin Fashanu would be perfect. Not only was he a club legend who scored one of the greatest goals ever seen at Carrow Road, he also battled against racism and homophobia for the nest part of his career, and the way his life ended was tragic. A statue of him (in the pose after his goal against Liverpool) would be perfect, especially as racism and homophobia seem to be creeping back into the game once more. There is a Facebook group, if you agree, join here....http://www.facebook.com/groups/301622759897502/

    our club is driving the working class fans away

    Also, there is a world of difference between whether you can physically afford something, or whether you actually think its worth the price it''s being sold for. I am lucky enough to be able to afford £31 for a football match, but is it worth it?? Not in a million years!

    [quote user="morty"][quote user="No Quarter"]Whatever way you put it, a game of football is not worth £31.  In a million years.  I have a season ticket, and I almost blindly accept the monthly direct debit without really thinking about it.  However, had I have parted with £60 odd on Friday night for me and my wife, then I would have been fuming.  Or to put it another way, I wouldn''t have gone in the first place.  I love NCFC, have been a season ticket holder for 30 years (since the age of 4) but I would not pay that kind of money to watch them. If that makes me less of a fan, then fine. A game of footbal should cost £10-£15.  [/quote]

    Lol, but it doesn''t cost that, and a bag of chips is no longer 2 shillings either.

    No one is forcing anyone into Carrow road, if you can''t afford the price, you can''t go, it really couldn''t be simpler.

    I''m 35....not 95.  I even recognise your Cube signature, although Death Certificate kicks the arse off the Predator........

    Misers!

    The reason people moan (including me) is because we are paying extra money for everything at the football club, not for an increase in the quality we are watching every week, but in order to maintain the players ridiculous wages (yes, that old chestnut again).  People talk of Norwich City like they are a charity.  If I were to plough money into a charity, and then see some of the charity workers driving around in top of the range sports cars, I would swiftly withdraw my money again.  I know it''s the way of the world, and thats how football is these days, but it really highlights the power and mercenary attitude footballers have over their clubs.  It sucks.

    RIP Roy Waller

    [quote user="yellow blood"]Sad news. There is one piece of commentary that has stuck in my head for more than 20 years. It was Hillsborough in 1982 in front of 10,000 City supporters...Downs, Downs to Bennett. He crosses the ball, in goes Bertschin, he''s scored! Is that the goal that is going to take Norwich City back to Division 1? Sheffield Wed 1 Norwich City 1. RIP Roy![/quote]

     

    Do you know what, I''ve had that exact piece of commentary stuck in my head all morning!!  How weird!!  I was at that game, and I''m sure that snippet of commentary was on the b-side to the "Something To Shout About"  single!!  My grandad bought it for me in ''82 and got it autographed by the squad. Classic stuff, Roy is an NCFC legend and the voice of my youth....

    Why the black t shirts?

    Oh really?  I didn''t realise it was an enforced thing. Actually, that annoys me even more (and no, I''m over the moon that we''re promoted before the usual pink un police jump on me).  I just feel that the celebrations are more for the sponsors than they are for the fans.  I guess thats just me coming from watching NCFC in the 80''s, when celebrations were passsionate and spontaneous (i.e didnt feature black t shirts, corporate staging, "celebration" music, ridiculous tickertape etcetc). I remember winning Division 2 in 86-87 (I think it was).  Now that was a genuine, fan led celebration......anyway, I''m gonna f**k off once more.  Just realised why I stopped posting on this forum.

    Why the black t shirts?

    I don''t believe that I said that I was unhappy that we''d won the league, I''m just dissapointed that all the photo''s and memories of today will be featuring a bunch of players in black tshirts rather than the friggin famous green and yellow shirts that they actually play in.  I don''t see how thats me moaning......

    Why the black t shirts?

    Why did the players collect the trophy in those naff black t shirts?  Why did they not wear the home shirts, so it actually looked like NCFC winning a trophy?  Annoyed me a bit.....

    So there was a pitch invasion...

    I, for one, applauded the fans who ran onto the pitch at full time.  A big 2 fingers up at "the man" I say, and that pathetic p.a announcement.  I remember a time when you could celebrate by running on the pitch, and have the players celebrating with you.  We''d just won the league f.f.s.  As for the people who boo''d them...come on you bunch of nancy boys.....
  13. I saw Pout At The Devil last night at The Bridgehouse in Norwich....awesome!!!!!  And yeah Jas, Top Hat Alleycat are a great local band too........

    LAMBERT OUT

    Don''t understand why anybody would want to increase their post number?  All that says to me is not enough time down the pub/out/having friends, a boyfriend or girlfriend or life.  I''d say it''s something to be embarrased about........

    Can you hear me?

    Been trying to think of some famous Colchester people to do this very post, but drew a blank.  Well done!!
