  1. True, but having been at the game we are a mid-Championship team at the very best. For long periods Falkirk passed us off the pitch, our midfield is non-existent and Russel Latapy for Falkirk basically ran the show in midfield. He is a player that could do a fantastic job for us, but the problem is the guy has skill - something Worthington tends to overlook in his signings. The current squad is the weakest that I can remember, other than Docherty, Shackell and Huckerby I am struggling to praise anyone else from todays game. Etuhu is a absolute joke, but one positive at least Andy Hughes never got on the pitch! So for the season ahead it ain''t looking good, I really have no positives from  todays game at all. It''s just a pity Worthington wasn''t shown the door in close season because at one point today I thought the Worthy out chants were gonna start. Says it all even though the season hasn''t started yet! Keep the faith.            
  2. Cantley, my understanding of the attendance fugures is the % of turnout. IE if Norwich state 25000 with 91% turnout then the true actual attendance would be 22750.
  3. Quite agree Yellow Fever, my typical home game starts at 7.00am Saturday - train to Edinburgh, Flybe to Norwich and bus into the City. Returning Sunday PM!
  4. Lets be honest, does it really matter. I know that if I wanted to see a game I''d sit wherever. I noticed that on friday at least 2 online ticker agencies were selling tickets at £65-£100 for this game no questions asked who you supported or where you wanted to sit.
  5. 20 points from 29 games - we need to get real, we are as good as relegated and have been since Christmas. We will finish with 26 points max.
  6. Without a doubt Ashton was a class act tonight - man of the match by a mile and we were unlucky not to get a point. The league however does not lie, we have the poorest defence in the Premiership and I just hope that Saturday is not an embarrassment? Certainly we need to start re-building for the Championship because we are just not capable of getting the points needed - I think 28 points is probably the maximum we are likely to achieve. Defensively we are a joke (would Malky really have been this bad?) - Drury isn''t good enough, Fleming/Eddy have had their day, Chalrton ok for another year, the Doc? well he wasn''t voted Spurs worst player of all time for nothing! Shackell looked good tonight, give the lad a run until the end of the season. Just hope Curbishly wasn''t watching Francis, with a view to picking over the bones at seasons end. Also, how much wine did Delia have - she looked half pissed ranting at the fans on the pitch at half time????
  7. Sad that it is, I think we all have to be realists here. Nigel boy was not given the money to spend in the close season while both Palace and particularily West Brom did. We are bottom after 13 games because currently we are the worst team in the league! We have played well in quite a few games, but never for a full 45 minutes let alone 90! NW has taken a pretty poor team inherited from Hamilton and turned us into a good Championship team. Alas, the Premiership is most definately a different propositon and Nigel has been seen to be tactically nieve. How many Premiership quality players do we actually have? Green, Drury, Helveg?, Francis, Jonson, Huckerby and Bently after that I''m struggling. And as for main Striker Svenson - he cost us the pricely sum of £50k! IMO we will be relegated, and by the time the transfer window opens will be as good as so who will want to come here? Whether Nigel should go is another question, getting us back he might do but between now and season end I can see us being totally humiliated on more than one occasion so where do we go? I think NW should maybe be given another 4 games or so then we need to look elsewhere. Comments from the close season from Doncaster hardly help when he says we are planning the finances of the club on finishing bottom of the league - on that point you were spot on!!
  8. I''m sure that the wins will come. If however we carry on scoring 0.625 points per game then we will finish with 23 points this season. Not depressed yet, but we are sadly missing a proven goalscorer which I appreciate dosern''t come cheap.
  9. Agree that Worthington usually has a good eye for who is/isn''t good enough. Although 18 months ago a certain Nacho Novo had a weeks trial at Norwich (when he was at Raith) and failed to make the grade. He''s banging them in fairly at the moment for Rangers - just the striker we could do with right now.
  10. Great result today, couldn''t get there was at the old firm derby in Glasgow but got regular updates all they way through by text! Good for Malkay Celtic old boy!
  11. Spawn, take it from me he did. He was standing on the corner of the Barclay nearest the away support, he was already in hard negotiations with someone else at the time and as I said was quoted £50.00. Just goes to show his loyalty when for a tidy some was willing to head off home at ten to three and not see the game!
  12. Tom, ignore Natalie she''s a total fraud (I''m still waiting for my West Ham ticket!!!). Plus I think the moderator on this site should perhaps remove her access??
  13. Agree 100% on this, I had travelled down for the weekend to visit family and couldn''t get a ticket (memeber for 10+ years). Went to the ground on Saturday and was offered a ticket by a very friendly golden goal ticket seller for £50.00! Told him where to poke it and watched the game in Kafe Da - which was great by the way! What really annoys me is the fact that people for away teams can get hold of tickets when true ones can''t? Having said that we would all sneak in anywhere if thats all that was available - as I for one watched our away game at West Ham from a home stand (athough City allocation was sold out and the game wasn''t so didnt feel that guilty!)

  14. A1 Canary, I think the capacity is 49000 - so yes it most definately will be half empty as I think Sunderland have struggled to get 25000 for home games this season. I''ll be travelling down from Edinburgh for this game so if anyone knows any decent meeting places for a drink please post. Having said that Sunderland fans are pretty much the best anyway (unless ur black and white) so there won''t be any trouble mixing before/after. Andy
