  1. If you are taking anything what the Daily Fail writes seriously then you are clearly an idiot.

    Saying that he bbc spends only half of its money on actual programs is like saying that the NHS only spends 10% of its budget on actual operations, the rest they squander on stuff like cleaners, equipment, buildings, maintenance etc.

    You can make up any fact from any figures, which the Daily Shmail does at every opportunity it can at institutions and situations that it disagrees with, it clearly wants an end to the BBC because it help prevents it tax dodging over sea owners getting any more money.

    It''s kind of apt that the subject appeared on a post about ''illegal streaming'' because once the bbc has gone it will give carte Blanche to people like Sky to charge whatever they want for tv, with adverts every five minutes interrupting programs which you will have to pay to watch.

    As for the OP concerned with illegal streaming, why does it bother him so much? All that money is not going to benefit the club or its supporters, just the players and their agents, all this extra income the club will be getting will not mean us getting cheaper seats even though we bankrolled them for many years when they needed the money, in fact it''s the opposite, you will be paying more.

    Anyway, here''s a press release concerning the bbc response to the a**se wipe of a newspaper.

    Yellow submarine song!

    Many years ago, about the time when there was a disaster with a russian submarine that ''sank'', I posted something similar.

    In the place where I was born,

    There played a team we all adore

    But there''s a team who''s f***in'' sh*te,

    And they play in blue and white.

    Scum are going down like a russian submarine

    a russian submarine

    a russian submarine etc etc.

    What word do you want him to use - "coloured"??    "Black" is what is acceptable.  Most other descriptive words are not pc anymore.

    [/quote]

    Black players perhaps?

    Describing them as just ''blacks'' is a bit objectifying isn''t it?

    Are we skint?

    as a side note, probably more relevant than how much money we can spend, rather being able to spend, is that this week a report was published that said that, under the new financial fair play rules, only 4 clubs in the premiership would qualify to play in Europe, Arsenal, Swansea and us.

    * i forget the other one.
  6. I''m dismayed at this attitude displayed on here sometimes.

    The same people who are constantly berating Hughton for his negativity and his pre match conferences, when he bigs-up the opposition, are the same people now writing off the rest of the season, especially those four last games, you are doing exactly the same thing what you accuse him of.

    The last four games might spring a surprise or two, especially if you consider that the league might have already be won by May and Arsenal or Chelsea, or possibly both, might be teams with nothing to play for, with entire squads with one eye on the world cup.

    And I don''t know about you but there isn''t one team below us at the moment that I would want to swap places with, even a couple above us too.

    Those below us have all got to play each other too, it''s going to be a nervy few months for everyone.

    Yes we''ve had some awful performances this season but that last half hour at Cardiff just showed how we can dominate some teams if it weren''t for some class goalkeeping, woodwork hitting and goal line clearing, not to mention two disallowed goals.

    Like it or not, this is the squad and manager we have until at least the end of the season, there''s a long way to go still, so stop displaying the negative attitude that you always accuse Hughton of and save all these pointless polls until 4.45pm on Sunday 11th of May, because you are doing the team no good now.
  7. according to this

    http://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2013/nov/30/arsenal-barcelona-premier-league-wenger
  8. ffs, you lot should be f***ing ashamed of yourselves. On what exactly are you basing this ridiculous pessimism on? Our recent poor league results including against currently the two best teams in the league? Even though we did play some good football, in fact being commended by both opposition managers for the way we played.

    Yes,we probably will get beat tomorrow, not surprising that we will be playing a team that has cost over a £1bn in transfers and wages to assemble over the past few years, but to say it will be in the 7, 8 or 9 nil region is a total disgrace, they have hardly been handing out proper pastings this season, what makes you think we will be any different to Hull, Cardiff or Villa?

    You talk of Hughton being negative, have a look in the mirror.

    [quote user="Waveney Canary"]How about going to carrow road? No annoying ads, no signal disappearing and you also contribute money to the club. I know this is a very unfashionable view on this forum buts it''s just a thought.[/quote]

    So, according to your theory, Norwich are only allowed 23,000 supporters at any one time because obviously only those going to to the game are able to be fans.

    Those plastics who you refer to probably contribute more to the club than you ''real'' fans. Didn''t they work out a fact a while ago that the increase in money alone from last seasons tv deal could mean that all ''real'' fans could sit and watch every game all season at the ground for free and the club would still have more money than they did have the previous season. Who do you think the club is more important, financially, you ''real'' fans or the ''plastics''?

    Don''t lecture people on how they should support their team, heaven forbid that one day you yourself might get made redundant/married/a new baby/incapacitated/a cheaper hobby and was unable to go to a game and was forced into being the ''plastic'' fan you clearly despise and resent.

    How did you put it? Oh, yes. You''re not the sharpest tool in the box are you?
  10. Craig Fleming''s your hero?

    If I were you I''d aim a bit higher!
  11. [quote user="can u sit down please"]Asda?[/quote]

    Coincidentally I saw him too this afternoon and it was not in Asda but in Waitrose, Eaton. He was deep in conversation with someone who was obviously a fan who had stopped him, chatting about last nights game, seemed like he had loads of time for him, in no rush to brush him aside. Good on him.
  12. [quote user="Highland Canary"]Or get on the bus, especially to away grounds, we were only over-subscribed once last season...[/quote]

    yes, because every single Norwich supporter can not only afford the £100 or so it costs to go on an away trip but also the day it takes away from being with your family after being at work all week.

    Grow up FFS, not everyone has the luxury of not only money, but sometimes, more importantly time to be a at a ground to watch a live game.

    Some of the people you just dismiss of being arm chair supporters because they now cant attend every game there have probably attended more games than you have in your lifetime.

    I used to go to every game, home and away for years, no matter where it was or what league we were in but, because of my current situation, what with children and stuff, I cant go to as many games as I would like to, but does that make me any less of a supporter than you are?

    I frackin doubt it, if you can beat going to Swansea in 1998 for a 1st round league cup game on a cold wet tuesday night than maybe so, but I really don''t think you could.

    Some people can''t go to games, for whatever reason, be it financial, opportunity, distance or just that they have found other priorities, like having children, in their life that come a bit higher than following their team all around the country.

    One day it may happen to you, but until then, just remember that there were a lot of people who you now mock for not being able to go, who have probably made it possible for you to still have a local team to follow.
  13. the premier league haven''t got a leg to stand on when it comes to trying to prosecute the landlord, their argument should be the legal tv provider that the pub has paid for.

    As for their often-used excuse that they want to protect grass roots football by not showing 3pm kick offs, they kicked that one out of the park a long time ago, there was one particular saturday last season when there was only 4 kick-offs at 3pm.

    It''s all about treating the uk football supporter like mugs, not only are our season tickets vastly over-priced compared to the rest of europe but our tv sports subscriptions are 3 times the amount they pay over there too. The average pub would pay about £7k a year to have Sky Sports, so they get their current deal off VIASAT, a legit provider which actually pays more than Sky does to show football, for about £2k

    So the Premiership goes after small businesses like your local pub landlord who cant afford a court case, rather than risk upsetting the businesses who are actually breaking their regulations, the broadcaster, in case they stop paying them so much the next time their deal runs out.

    I think the point that everyone was trying to make is that how can someone, obviously with some working knowledge and access to the internet, can have gone about life during the past few months without knowing who Lee Rigby is and, even if they didn''t, thought it would be easier to log on to here, write a message and wait indefinitely for an answer from a bunch of anonymous strangers rather than type two words into a search engine.

    Next thing you''ll be asking is "what''s this I hear about Prince Charles and Princess Diana having a baby?"

  15. Surely if Cisse is serious about not wanting a name of a money lender on his shirt then I would have thought that the BARCLAYS Premier League is the wrong place for him. The last time I looked Barclays is written on every shirt sleeve of every club''s strip and I have an inkling that quite a large part of Barclays business model is lending money.
