    Central heating

    Set a man a fire and he'll be warm for the rest of the night. Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life. Terry Pratchett...I think.

    The 'ammers

    A win on Saturday would really boost confidence, especially as one or more of Everton, Brighton, Watford and West Ham are going to drop points. We really need to win most of our 'six-pointers' between now and the end of the season if we are to pull off a great escape now, though. We have been found wanting so far. Something has to click a la Southampton to stand a chance from here. It can be done, of course, but we really need some of our points to be at the expense of those not far above us.

    Tonights relegation games

    Outside our own results I don't think it really matters who wins what games. If we get to 40 points we will be in with a shout. We really have to win against most/all of those bottom seven or eight teams to amass the points ourselves. Outside that it matters little what the others do.
  4. I like the alliteration in the title. Just needs pinching into someone along the lines of 'Duda deal done; da daaaaa!'

    Shame Maguire is back for Man U.

    BT Sport

    To be fair, my reading of the OP was that Lakey was asking whether there was a legitimate route to getting BT Sport temporarily, perhaps in the same way you can get day passes for Sky Sports via the Now TV app.

    City v Spurs match thread

    Please don't let this slip away. Our play, courage and character deserves a win here.

    9 wins?

    Aye. It's massively unlikely that we will stay up from here, but not impossible. We keep seeing green shoots without really gaining any traction. Pukki is certainly doing his bit but there have been too few goals from elsewhere. It's hard to see that changing enough in the second half of the season. We keep plugging away until it is mathematically impossible, though.
  11. I have to admit I feel disproportionately better today. It was beginning to look as if we were already being cut adrift of 17th and I have been concerned about how uncompetitive we have been in several matches I had thought we stood a chance in. It was not so much the points total but rather the seemingly relentless defeats and the inability to score that seemed to have set in. Yet with one win and, more importantly, cohesive performance, the table looks so much better, as does our overall outlook. I know everything could change again in either direction in a week or two but it feels great to have a spark of confidence back and a glimmer of hope to cling to.

    Which appears was totally unfounded!

    Article on Ben Godfrey

    I like that they refer to him as "overtime Godfrey"!!
  16. Please, God; make this isn't happening!

    Nature or nurture?

    I must admit I used to scoff a little at those who used the argument that none of our players had improved under x, y z manager as a measure of said manager's capability. However, I have completely changed my view having witnessed what the current regime has achieved. It is almost certainly not all Farke, it's the whole team and overall culture, but he is undoubtedly a massive part of it.
  18. I cannot wait. I have no idea what to expect but the Club have my full and unerring support in the way they have approached things. I am so proud of the NCFC family at the moment and I really hope we confound the experts and have a terrific season. Even if we ultimately fail, though, I am glad we are trying something different.
  19. Aye. It's considerably more than I was earning for the first ten years of my career.

    Is this a football site or not!

    Indeed. And, by the same token, the 'sofa' thread is relevant because there are many armchair fans of our great club, and the 'hero' thread is relevant because we all have those on the pitch, right? The Carrow Road stadium is there primarily for us to watch football, but I bet the conversation sometimes strays off-topic there and occasionally it is hijacked for other purposes. How much time is actually wasted clicking on a thread title that transpires to be non-football (and to close it) in any given day and how does that compare to how long some of you have spent moaning about it? And, finally, I would observe that there are plenty of football-related threads on here I have regretted opening after perusing the contents. Dismissing the non-football ones pales in comparison.
