Starting to be reported now....http://www.ipswichstar.co.uk/news/ipswich_town_to_explain_winding_up_order_1_4427651The response quoted on TWTD was only a ''belief'' that it was over a debt cleared before Christmas, and was made before the tim eof the official hearing into the case. According to the Star article a club statement later today is promised - once the hearing has occurred no doubt.
Annoyingly Brighton is now sold out for NCFC (3100) and Brighton themselves have closed their general sale even though they have loads left.Wait list only allows 1 ticket per person. Come on NCFC - ask for a bigger allocation please!
Very interesting to see that if you rank the "Highest Paid Director", NCFC had the 3rd highest paid director of all clubs in cash value, and 2nd overall when ranked as a % of turnover. If you focus on the clubs with turnover in the £61m to £86m range (Norwich in the middle of this at £75m), excluding Southampton, Norwich and WBA the average highest paid director earned £355k with Norwich paying nearly 5 times this amount.
It''s good but it''s not as good as this http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jPVn9eLOkF0Why the club doesn''t make more of having the oldest and best anthem in world football I just don''t know.It''s so much better than YNWA, Blaydon Races, Z-cars etc and Liverpool, Newcastle, Everton make much more of their respective anthems.Playing this before kick off would be so much better than what we do now and also have the benefit of educating the crowd as to how it''s really sung.We got rid of goal music, we can get OTBC sung properly too!

Minor point, but it would be a little bit more scientific if you replaced the promoted/relegated teams in a more logical manner.
You''d expect the Championship winners to be the better of the promoted teams, and as such you''d use them to replace the top relegated side (i.e. the better of the relegated teams) and so on.
Therefore, Reading to replace Bolton, Southampton to replace Blackburn and West Ham to replace Wolves?
I started this table before the Reading game. I picked the combinations I did as of the promoted teams I expected West Ham to be the strongest and Reading/Southampton to be much of a muchness. I thought we would be most likely to lose away at West Ham and win away at Southampton to make my substitutions seem fair.
Either way, it just goes to show how well Hughton is doing. Obviously the more the better, but if we can hit 21 - 24 points by end of Boxing Day I would be happy with that.
This table shows where we are right now based on the results in the same fixtures LAST season. Where some people have pointed aout that we are 1 point ahead of this time last year I would go as far as saying we are 5 points ahead of last season.
I have replaced West Ham, Reading and Southampton with Blackburn, Wolves and Bolton respectively.
This is all great, but what the table also shows is that on a match for match basis we are now entering a run of 7 games where we were unbeaten and took 15 points from 21. That could be areal tall order, but if we get anywhere near 10 we are still going to be on track.
The other thing the table shows is how after Christmas it really should be our home form that will make all the difference with only 6 points taken away from home in the corresponding fixtures last season.
Anyway, hope you like the analysis - now you can disect it!

3 wins and we''ll be safe imo
We will get considerably more than the 37pts that would mean, starting with 3pts next weekend - I gotta feelin''
I think each place you finish higher in the league is worth about £800k - not a sum to be sniffed at. The difference between finishing 8th (our realistic highest possibility) and 17th is a neat £7m+. I will be satisfied to finish 17th as that was our original target and my level of happiness will rise expodentially for every place higher than that.
Its OK to re realistic, but the reason we are succeeding is because we have ambition. Our ambition is that we finish as high up the league as we can, but at this stage it doesn''t mean we won''t be satisfied with 17th.
I hate QPR!
I hate their Captain Pugwash shirts, and their garden shed of a gound.
I hate their winging manager with the humourous moniker.
I hate Tony Fernandez who doesn''t know who the right Lotus were and so bought a Loftus
I hate Anelastic Foreskin who is ineligible for a bus pass let alone to play in the Premier League.
I hate "He''ll Cry In a Minute" Tarabt not keeping his toys in his pram.
I hate Joey Barton and his tw@tter comments or whatever they are.
I hated not beeing able to see the corner flags when at their ground in the old days.
I hated thier plastic pitch covered in sand.
I hate their mascot - what the feck was it - was it a rat?
I hate their club shop full of blue and white sh!te.
I hate their "meal deals" what a rip off.
I hate that they are bad losers
I hate their nickname - Super Hoops - sounds like a brand of savory snack from Lidl''s
I hate QPR
I love that they hate US!!!!

Its ok to say lighten up, but there are alot of people who don''t like something as simple and instinctive as cheering a goal becoming something choreographed like something out of a night club or some tv show. Its a raw emotion when your team scores - the music for me - and others - dilutes and detracts from that emotion.
Cut the goal music - I am sure no-one would miss it...............
Spot on - make it the clubs New Year Resolution
We don''t need ''celebration'' music - we don''t want it - lets stop it.
AND get the full length OTBC played just before kick off - IT IS AWESOME and THE OLDEST SONG IN WORLD FOOTBALL - it is OUR HERITAGE - I can''t believe the club can waste such an opportunity.
Pete - if there is one thing that should be pinned to the top of the board it is this.
How do we make it happen? - I have written to McNally about this before but got no response.
This is something that is important to world football - its the oldest footie song - we should make far more of it than we do. Cut out the euro pap and goal celebration music and get this on at 150 decibels just before kick off!
Oh yes - and sing it properly rather than running out of breath in the first line! The crowd need educating in the majesty of the real way to sing it.
