    Can we display the ‘date joined’ for each user rather than having to click into it? Helps me save time as I like to read genuine posters rather than trolls etc etc. And this could help me spot if someone has just signed up recently to waste time. Just a thought

    Quiz of the week...?

    I really enjoyed the first three quizzes of the week but they seem to have disappeared... have I missed them or have they been discontinued?

    Love a bit of NCFC trivia challenge!

    The "Hoolahan dilemma" returns....

    With the diamond the width comes from the overlapping fullbacks, so it''s def possible to have 2 up top and keep the width. I think (hope) we''ll see Olsson and Whittaker pushing forward whilst Johnson, Howson and Tettey sit deep.

    To be fair we''ll need several formations this season anyway, so I''m sure that we''ll see switches game to game plus I doubt Wes will play every match..

    But you''re right, a nice dilemma to have.

    olsson to west ham

    Fully agree with the Ruddy point. Big statement of intent if he stays. I''d also start Becchio, sign another striker and have Hooper/Loza as back up.

    So it is Malky

    Yep I''d be happy with that Herman!

    Rosler would do a better job than Zola I think.

    The pragmatist in me says Malky.....the adventurer in me is screaming out for Zola!

    Surman and Fox

    I rate Fox and I think that both he and Surman will/should be key players for us. Given the frequency of the matches in the championship we will need to a good sized squad clear of those who don''t fancy the away matches in dec on a cold rainy tues eve in dec. Fox knows the league.
  10. Not many prior to me Patches. I used to post a fair bit on the old message board before the ''big bang'' so to speak. I remember XXXXL used to be on there all the time but I''ve not heard much from him recently.

    Every thread seems to descend into arguing or abuse.... I read the message board almost every day, I just don''t often respond to posts.

    Nice to see a few of the ''class of 2003'' still writing in here.

    Missing posters

    I get fed up with commenting on here. I read the board most days as it keeps me in the loop now that I live out of Norwich. I find lots of posts informative however they almost always descend into abuse/attacks/trolling and by the 5th or 6th response have lost the vein of the original thread.

    Difficult to get an actual football debate without someone accusing the other of being an arm chair fan, moron, lover, hater etc etc.

    I shall always continue to read and check the board - but for us ''original'' message board users - it''s not the same. In the early days before social media - it was great to be able to reach out and share Norwich related thoughts with like minded fans. The original intent of the board seems to have been lost somewhat.

    I want O'Neil

    He has unfinished business with us.

    The motivation of Lambert but with more tactical nous and would be a huge lift. Great track record aside from a poor spell with a difficult bunch of Sunderland players.

    To sack or not to sack....

    Sadly I think you''re right.

    If we do by some great escape stay in the league. Then how long would you give the current team? If we stay up then I suppose he needs a chance with some new signings.

    To sack or not to sack....

    Looking at other teams who have ''pulled the trigger'', I can''t help but wonder whether it is something we would be foolish to do or not...

    Sunderland and Saints have both ridden a little bit of that new manager feeling, Reading not quite so well but then they managed a great win yesterday at our bogey ground!

    Admittedly any sacking and appointment for two games is an almost ridiculous gamble but would it be any worse than the status quo...?

    Half of me kept expecting to wake up today and see a ''Hughton'' sacked headline with perhaps say an O''Neil or some other unemployed manager to come in for the two games. I really am undecided on whether it would be in our interests to do it...if pushed I''d say probably stick with Hughton but I just can''t abide the thought of another 4-5-1 next week with limited attacking play.
