    Wes a disgrace

    [quote user="CJ"]Sorry over reaction Wes never celebrates big time just not his temperament, at least he can score, why not give stick to the other six or so so called attackers who can not do so[/quote]

    Just check the photo after Turner equalised at VP in the Pink Un piece about Wes the other day.

    Looks like he was celebrating there.

    please sack him

    [quote user="Dr Crafty Canary"]I don''t think Hoolahan is a clown as there is no evidence of a red nose, over sized shoes nor is he wearing an orange curly wig and a multicoloured striped outfit. However I do think Mr McNally will be sending him on his way this summer.[/quote]

    What a card

    Wes a disgrace

    [quote user="AJ"]Refusing to celebrate against his old manager? Can''t really have a go at him about that it''s up to him isn''t it?[/quote]

    Yeah, like his old manager didn''t celebrate when they scored

    No new signings

    [quote user="WEEN_NASTY"]If that''s the case why not tweet it this morning so I wouldn''t have to listen all day long.[/quote]


    Don''t think you have quite understood McNally''s mentality!


    Maybe not, so please feel free to enlighten me.

    If we weren''t after anyone, why not say so in the morning. If we were, why not say we didnt get them instead of we got ours in the summer, ner ner ne ner ner.

    I think McN is great but let''s not try and be Simon Cowelll

    Picture quiz

    [quote user="norfolkbroadslim"][quote user="norfolkbroadslim"]

    Possibly a bit tougher as the ''who'' isn''t even in the picture, but there is a clue in the picture -





    Anyone want to take a stab at this one?  The year perhaps?



    I noticed the balloons and did a search for balloons at Carrow Road.

    Interesting that only the River end has a number of people in it.

    Pardew Houghton Swap Deal?

    [quote user="KeelansGlove"]Would rather be managed by Ronald Mcdonald.

    In fact I honestly cant think of anyone I would want less (except maybe Roeder & Hamilton)

    Makes me shudder just to think of it.[/quote]I''m lovin it
  12. Everyone else started a Hooper thread. Just felt left out.

    There it goes again. Anyone hear that?


  14. Ipswich airstrip got sold and houses were built on there, Ravenswood.

    Seems the way of things with the training ground now sold to Marcus Evans.

    The good news is that they haven''t sold their ground. The council own it.

  15. There was a private jet landed at Norwich airport at 13.00 from Altenrhein. That''s close to St Gallen.

    Ezequiel Scarione scored 21 goals in the Swiss league last season and was top scorer.

    The guy fits the bill with a long name and plenty on scope for double and triple word scores.

    Unfortunately, he was transferred to Kasimpasa SK in the Tukish Super League recently.

    I''ll keep searching and keep you all informed.

    [quote user="ron obvious"]I started a thread on this rumour a couple of days ago.

    It was roundly ignored.[/quote]

    Sorry, did anyone just hear something? Thought not!

    I'm never in the know, however...

  18. Looks like RVW''s hair has been hit by a cross wind and NR''s, being in RVW''s lee, has remained unscathed.

  19. Apologies if this has been posted before. Just saw this extract from Colin''s book The Gaffer: The Trials and Tribulations of a Football Manager.

    It was back to the league after that and we went into the Christmas period just off the play-offs. Then we lost to Nottingham Forest and Hull City in quick succession. It wasn’t just the defeats that worried me though, suddenly our best striker and top goalscorer had stopped working. Luciano Becchio had been enjoying a terrific season, but unless you’re Barcelona that causes problems because the player, and his advisers, start thinking about a move. I soon had enough calls from people claiming to be in his camp to know his head was elsewhere. It was clear by early December he wanted to go – before the Chelsea game when he scored and kissed the badge. At that stage he wanted to go to Turkey or China. The Turks were offering to nearly treble his wages so inevitably I get a player coming to see me telling me he’s 29 and this is his big chance to make himself secure for life. I know he’s as good as telling me if I don’t let him go I might not get the best out of him in the rest of the season. But I can’t tell the local press there is a gun to my head. The players all know he wants away, the manager knows, but you can’t blacken his character in public if you are going to sell him as you’ll reduce his value – and there’s always the chance the window will shut and you’ll be left with him and will need him to want to play for you.So the fans – who love him – moan when you leave him out, and the press ask why, but you can’t say anything. It’s difficult. The issue came to a head when we lost at Barnsley in January and to my eyes Becchio never broke sweat. They were bottom of the table and Yorkshire rivals whose fans love to put one over ‘big’ Leeds. Our fans, for the first time, turned on the team, and me. I made the point of staying out on the pitch until last, and clapping the fans. I got dog’s abuse. I knew after that I had to do something about Becchio so I spoke to his agent on the Monday and told him how disappointed I was at Becchio’s attitude. In reply the agent let slip Becchio had rung him an hour before the game. I was gobsmacked, but I didn’t let on, just asked him a question that ensured he confirmed it. I then asked Becchio if his mind was on the game, he said it was, but when I pointed out he’d been on the phone to his agent an hour before kick-off he had suddenly nothing to say. He couldn’t deny it. So he had to go, but I needed to get a replacement. One player I’ve always admired, especially since a performance for Millwall against my QPR, is Steve Morison. I tried to sign him when QPR went up but Norwich beat us to him. He did well for them in their first season in the Premier League but was now on the bench most weeks. I got in touch with Chris Hughton at Norwich but he insisted he wouldn’t let Morison go until he got a replacement. He was finding that difficult. It was all over the papers that they had had bids rejected for strikers like Celtic’s Gary Hooper. Then they lost in the FA Cup to non-League Luton to top off a bad run in the league and I knew they’d be getting desperate to sign someone. I could have offered Becchio to Chris, but that would have weakened my negotiating position as it would have made it obvious I needed to shift Becchio. So I asked someone else with links to the club to throw his name in the hat. It worked. Becchio had not been on their radar but a 19-goal striker was going to keep the fans happy, and he was a lot cheaper than Hooper. We also got a cash adjustment in our favour, £ 200,000, so the new owners were happy, and after the problems with Becchio so was I.Interesting.

  20. I''ve got Holt on my old shirt and I''m still going to wear it. The guys a legend and the locals where I live (6 miles from 1p5wich) just love it.
