  1. There''s a vacancy at Walker''s Skip Hire.
  2. It''s hard being you, isn''t it, Ricky?Go on, say something cheerful. Do you really not think that turning the worst team in the league over the first sixteen games into the seventh best over the last 30 (even taking into account a disappointing end to the season) is a pretty good performance?
  3. [quote user="blahblahblah"][quote user="Robert N. LiM"][quote user="1st Wizard"] I''m saying nothing. [/quote]If only.[/quote] That''s that settled then, you''re not Darren Huckerby and I claim my 5 pounds.  Darrne wouldn''t be that churlish, and I bet your farts don''t smell like freshly mown grass with a touch of cinnamon either. [/quote]If only.

  5. [quote user="Mr.Carrow"][quote user="Mook"] I just don''t get ANY of this. We have a total LOSER mentality running through the club. The academy are not producing players. The players they are producing are not producing the goods. The 1st team players we have are not producing. There is a laid-back holiday mentality at this football club. Someone comes in and FIRES EVERYONE. A boot up the backside, a shot across the bows, call it what you will. The big name (but underperforming) player is shown the door. The youngsters that haven''t produced are booted out. The coaches that have not produced the players are booted out. And all those people that cry "more ambition" and "why are we little norwich, we''re a big club" start hating the man that is trying to implement change. WAKE UP PEOPLE. Whether or not we get promoted, this club has need a shake up for a long, long time. No more costa del norwich, no more Adrian Coote-alikes. [/quote] It doesn`t happen often Mook, but i totally agree. [Y] [/quote]does that mean you think the Roeder era will be short-lived, Mr C? That the falling out with the board is just a few weeks/months away?

Great post.
  8. [quote user="Robert N. LiM"]We''ll probably have to agree to disagree about international politics, Houston. But can you show me where to find this idolatry of the Doc?[/quote]So that''s a no, is it, Houston?
  9. We''ll probably have to agree to disagree about international politics, Houston. But can you show me where to find this idolatry of the Doc?Really good work on my name, by the way. Limp. Excellent.
  10. You see, Ricky, that''s where you undermine your argument. I personally feel that the current board have made several mistakes since we were promoted, some of which should have been seen at the time, some of which are probably the benefit of hindsight. We''re probably more in agreement on the current board than you think.But to say you''d welcome Chase back just makes you look foolish. His mismanagement turned a financially-stable, successful club into a basket case just at the moment when the gap began to open up between the Premier League and the rest. And he had no excuse.The worst you can say about Delia is that under her management we have not moved forward. She came in when we were an underachieving second tier club in financial difficulties. We are now an underachieving second tier club in slightly less severe financial difficulties. And the current board have had to deal with a football climate that makes life exceptionally difficult for clubs that do not have massive financial backing.You were right to demonstrate against Chase, Ricky. And you don''t need to buy him a pint. He''s a millionaire.
  11. [quote user="mr carra"] Sorry, but the Premiership has changed all that for clubs like us (and Leicester and Saints and Coventry and Ipswich etc etc). It was designed to load the dice against us. The fact that we have spent less time in the Prem under Delia says nothing whatsoever about the relative merits of the Boards concerned and everything about the changing nature of football.  If that isn''t obvious to you then you don''t know anything about football and are clearly posting on the wrong message board. If Chase had been in charge for the last 10 years we would be bankrupt and in League 1 (maybe League 2) and would have been for years.  In fact, he rather notably bankrupted us when the financial odds WEREN''T stacked against us to the extent that they are now. [/quote]Spot on, especially the last sentence. Notice that Bly hasn''t replied to you. Mind you, a reasoned paragraph is probably a bit much for him. And it''s time for a quick cocoa and a nap before Countdown.
  12. The difference is that Glenn has  a three-year plan, whereas Joe always took five to get things done.
  13. Am having the same problem, only each time I refresh the page, Wiz has changed his mind.
  14. Can I run a sweep on the first person to accuse you of being Neil Doncaster?
  15. [quote user="Houston Canary"]Doherty overrated?! - Trent Canary Yes, he''s overrated.  THAT is why he gets so much criticism from those of us who realize he is nothing special. The way so many of you twitter on about the guy like he''s the glue holding this team together, and if not for him things would be far worse is so irritatingly ridiculous that it invites equally exaggerated reactions from the other end of the spectrum. Much of the fun comes from the shocked reaction of those who don''t expect to be challenged when they praise the wonderful saviour, Doherty.  On this thread, he is not being overrated even by his supporters who admit he is perhaps average for this Division, but if you look at other threads where his name comes up, the adoration and idolotry for him is mind boggling.  As I''ve stated before, it seems to be a common trait among many NCFC fans, to nit pick at the truly special players we have and go head-over-heels about some not-so-talented player who is gritty.  It''s a loser mentality, like we don''t deserve the special players because Norwich is the hinterland, and the special player won''t stick around so let''s not get too attached to him.  Instead, they lock onto some scrub and build him up way beyond reality, and for the past few years, it''s been Doherty. [/quote]Where have you been reading such idolatry? Houston, you have a problem. And, it seems, about as much grasp of reality as your former governor. Views on Doherty that I have seen range from him being an adequate Championship defender to a cross between Frank Spencer and Josef Fritzl.For what it''s worth, I would like him to stay, and I would like us to sign two better centre-backs than him during the trade season.
  16. I''d love it if we could sign Sam Sodje, if only because he comes with the best chant of all time attached."He ain''t Efe, he''s his brother."[8]
  17. Shades of nuanced greyAre black and white zebra''s stripesTo poor old Bly Bly.
  18. [quote user="ricky knight"] Whatever its called it will be more successful than City at the moment, its actually called Bellum Letale, work it out oh clever one. [/quote]That''s Latin for "fleecing the gullible with fixed fights", isn''t it?
  19. [quote user="Destort"]Personally don''t think there should be a limit. At the end of the day having a bigger squad brings it''s own problems with players not happy sitting on the bench or not making the 16. Swings and roundabouts.[/quote]Except that you can loan them out and demand that they play. And next year it''s an 18 not a 16. It''s all swings for the big boys these days.
  20. I''m presumably not the only one who got another desperate email today advertising this fiasco.Jamelia and Ted MacDougall on the same bill. Didn''t anyone realise that this might be a difficult event to market?...
  21. [quote user="can u sit down please"] Didnt something get removed in the deal for Peter Grant? [/quote]I think it was the brains of the selection panel who hired him. They had to leave them in a bucket at the door.
