    Very pleasing news

    Penalties in the Prem

    They must have very long arms.
  3. I had to strain the old brain cells a bit but I recall starting the 72/73 season in division one with exactly the same team that won promotion at Watford at the end of 71/72. I don't recall Saunders buying anyone until '73 when Colin Suggett came in.

    Home, hosed and promoted with six games to go.

    I can recommend behind the settee as a safe space for those with weak tickers.
  5. The opportunity was missed when the old stand burnt down. A little bit more ambition on the rebuild at the time with say an extra 3000 seats would have been ideal but sadly it has now become a very expensive option. In any event gates of over 30k, even in the era of standing terraces were a relative rarity. I doubt if we will ever see gates of that size in any foreseeable future.

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    Archant must be getting desperate for fake news.

    I think it was more the ludicrous suggestion by some that both Sheff Utd and Leeds would both get 90 points. 84 points would have been a low target to set because in most seasons it wouldn't be enough. 88 or 89 is almost always the realistic target and you would have to be very unlucky to achieve that and not get auto.

    Stunning season - at a cost

    I agree with FenwayFrank

    Perfect Season?

    I hope you are not suggesting that any of those players could be tempted away from Elland Rd. Every club is a step down after Leeds.
  10. The wheel turns slower for some than others
  11. Only eight teams can claim any form of permanence, the rest of us gradually recycle over time.
  12. Its a case of so far so good but you have to continually be that bit smarter than everybody else to make it work and nobody can guarantee that we will lead the pack forever. What it won't do is break the cyclical nature of NCFC's fortunes. In any event where would the fun be if we didn't have all those ups and downs? Anyone who thinks we are now long term Premier League members needs to study history. I would like to think we can make it work for quite a few seasons but It will last as long as it lasts and I am determined to enjoy every minute. With City top, 1p5wich bottom and Leeds missing out it has been as near a perfect season as anyone could ask for but I'm old enough and have seen enough to know that there will be a turn of the wheel somewhere down the line.

    They don't do humility in Yorkshire.

    We can have a collection for them tomorrow and send a card with a picture of the Championship trophy.

    If somebody wrote it you'd say it was too far fetched to be believed.
