  1. What do we know about Tom Smith, apart from being in line for Delia and Michael''s share holdings? Do we have a timescale for this hand-over? Does Tom have his own financial resources or are we to be subject to sale money equating to purchase money for the foreseeable future? What encouragement is there for us to keep buying season tickets, particularly when we don''t know which league we will be in?
  2. I have nothing to support this roumour, but is said that the dressing-room problem hinges around differences in salaries. But this must apply to most clubs so I am not sure whether to take it with the proverbial pinch of salt.
  3. I suppose it''s too simplistic to say that any competent professional footballer should score from a penalty unless the ''keeper makes an inspired guess. One ''bee in my bonnet'' is that reporters shouldn''t just write or say "So and so missed a penalty". Did ''so and so'' miss the goal completely or did the ''keeper'' make a save? If the former, the player should be named and shamed, if the latter the ''keeper should be named and praised.
  4. Another reason why we should get upset is the boost that the loss, and the way we lost, will have given to Leeds for the forthcoming league meeting.
  5. This has been a good discussion, we all seem to be in agreement. I wonder if anyone in the Club or EDP reads this Discussion Board and would like to comment - or is that just wishful thinking?
  6. Who is our best corner taker? Do we have a best corner taker? This thought comes to mind after seeing one of Wes Hoolihan''s corner kicks go into the side netting on Saturday. Wes''s midfield performance has rightly been praised this year, but as a corner taker, not to mention a penalty kick taker NO. His liking for wasteful short corners or not getting them past the first few opposition players has happened too often. Jacob Murphy is often at fault this way also. We shout for the wide men to put the ball across and into the penalty area, yet we so often waste these dead ball opportunities. Surely we must have a player who can curl the corner away from the keeper if we are outside the area, or into the keeper if we are packing the area. The latter is what PNE seemed to do on Saturday causing chaos in our area, leading to the goal. We seemed to do the latter - at the Community stand end at least - leading to nothing
  7. GPB says all that needs to be said on this subject.
  8. Yes, it is probably the physique. Apologies about the apostrophe.
  9. Wayne Rooney played his first England game at, I think, 17. Why are the Murphy''s still being referred to as ''youngsters'' ?
  10. If, as has been reported here and elsewhere, Naismith didn''t move to Sunderland because his personal terms weren''t met, I think it removes the obligation, if there is one, for AN and the Club to play him or even put him on the bench. Many people think that playing Naismith prevents others from playing in their best positions or for others playing at all.
  11. ''The Board must go.'' It''s a good job someone has a grasp of how this Club is owned and run and can so clearly and accurately analyse the present position.
  12. A subject that doesn''t involve rumour or guesswork - I hope! Does anyone use the Poppy Line - from Sheringham to Norwich and back to get to Carrow Road on home match days, particularly joining at Wroxham.? Is it practical? Are the trains reliable? Are they impossibly crowded? Do the operators take account of the extra, I assume, numbers of passengers? First hand experiences would be welcome.
  13. Hello Rush Thank you for your measured and polite response. I realise that by vacating my three seats and offering them back to the club could seem like defeating the object. But perhaps someone in the hierarchy might read this feel just a little bit concerned. I hope I am wrong, and I have no evidence to support it, but I fear that we are drifting towards just relying on the forward central mid fielders rather then splashing out on a striker. After all, they have done pretty well so far until a serious injury crops up
  14. I didn''t say I was leaving our seats empty. I have given them back to the club for re-sale, perhaps to someone who can''t always get them - it''s called ''freedom of choice''.
  15. I am a season ticket holder who didn''t boo on Saturday, I just didn''t applaud either, perhaps a more balanced approach - silence. But you can''t do this alone. I am taking this to the point of not using our three tickets tonignt I guess the booer''s were just disappointed with the game and result. Realistic or otherwise, the media built up expectations which the team didn''t produce. Plus the continued non-appearance of a striker, which the team aren''t responsible for.
