  1. Ken Aries sounds like Canaries if you say it quickly enough - as in The Canaries. A little bit corny, I know, but never mind!
  2. [quote user="Smudger"]   Even Google and Youtube have never heard of this new NCFC striking superstar... that''s how good he is!!!   [/quote]I have just typed "David Strihavka+footballer" into google and the search engine provided me with nearly 400 hits. Never heard of this new NCFC striking superstar - my arse! Do you have problems with simple tasks like making an internet search, or do you just make it up as you go along, Smudge?
  3. There used to be a nasty piece of work, who was a binner, lurking around the message boards on the official site. After much protestation from City fans at his continuing abusage of that forum (he was a troll pure and simple with almost zero knowledge of the beautiful game) the site administrators eventually barred him. Perhaps Smudger and Cluck could meet a similar fate. Mind you if they do, don''t rule out their reappearance under a new nom de plume.
  4. Hi Michelle, how about Jennings Snecklifter ( wonderful name - wonderful beer), Hopback Summer Lightning, Sarah Hughes Ruby Mild (quite strong at 6% abv) or O'' Hanlon''s Port Stout? These are all excellent ales but of course wouldn''t suit everybody''s taste buds. Hopefully as I''ve resurrected your post you might hear the views of a few more real ale drinking posters now.
  5. [quote user="Web Team - Vince"]No. I can''t hear any pencils being sharpened on the sports desk in readiness. See http://new.pinkun.com/cs/forums/962366/ShowPost.aspx [/quote] Maybe somebody has knicked the only pencil sharpener!
  6. The guy is a complete J Arthur. His "expert" analysis in the TV studio at football matches is pretty dire, too. Why on earth do ITV retain his services?
  7. If somebody is passing the cheeseboard round, I''ll have some stilton and nicely matured cheddar with my cream crackers please.
  8. I found this week''s Name That Team the easiest one yet, although it did take me a while to come up with the nine letter wide right player. The main reason for starting this post is to ask whether the web team could turn the board on which you type in the players names the other way up, so that your completed line-up has the goalkeeper at the bottom instead of the top. This would then mean you view players in their correct positions relative to the screen - left back on the lefthand side; right back on the right etc. I''m a simple soul, and I find it rather awkward having to reverse everything in my head. Does anybody else agree, or am I making a fuss about nothing?
  9. Jas, the new owners of the Kings Head have done an excellent job in their total refurb of the pub - it would be virtually unrecognisable to anybody familiar with the old venue. The owners, in their own words, are enthusiastic Camra members - and it shows. They dispense real ales of a consistently good quality in oversize glasses - so you are never served short measures. They have decided to specialise in real ales from East Anglia only, and they refuse to sell any of that lager muck - although they do stock Belgian and Czech beers. The main reason they decided on a lager-free zone was to keep the riff-raff away - and it works. For all those who have never been to the revamped Kings Head, I can thoroughly recommend a visit.
  10. Might I suggest the following as rather fine City hostelries: The Coach and Horses (Thorpe Road), The Fat Cat; Kings Head and Ribs of Beef (Magdalen St), Kings Arms (Hall Road) and The Rosary. Talking of bars - had anybody noticed that Brannigans on Riverside has now ceased trading? It makes you wonder if any of the other "mega" bars down there are in trouble.
  11. You''re not wrong, Salahuddin. The fools who run the site decided on a total revamp a few weeks ago. Unfortunately the result is a total Ruck Up (or something that rhymes with ruck, anyway). I used to be a regular user of the message board - not any more. What a mess!
  12. Well, I think she looks pretty good for 66, and I wouldn''t say no if she invited me round for wine and nibbles to help her celebrate either. Happy Birthday, Delia.
  13. Somebody mentioned a survey where we came out as between 20th and 30th biggest club in the football league. I believe a more recent survey (within the last couple of years or so) placed us at about 15th biggest. This tends to make me think our rightful place is in the Premiership.
  14. It all depends what Granty''s total transfer budget is I suppose, but as we need to strengthen the team in all areas of the field, will this large sum of money on one player leave him short of funds elsewhere? Having said that, I can''t deny the importance of having a good 1st choice keeper, but shouldn''t Joe Lewis be given a chance?
  15. Why the chuffin heck are we debating the merits of Chris Brown, when it''s close season, and he hasn''t had the opportunity to prove himself for weeks, if not months. At least give him the opportunity to play a few games before you dismiss him as rubbish. As a comparison, I seem to remember Alan Smith was once being hailed as the next messiah, then you see him playing for England last Friday and he was poor. And the lesson is? A player''s form can be very in and out. It''s a certainty that they are not going to perform very well, while they feel the crowd is against them. Back them and their confidence will grow and they should give their best. If they''re given a fair crack of the whip and still prove to be disappointing, then you can think about dropping them.
