  1. Reminds me of the derby a few years back. My brother and I could only get in the scum stand and this as when we got thumped 5-0. We were the only 2 guys not celebrating for goal 1 and 2, got a bit dodgy with some cockney cowboys wanting to have a go and we were somewhat outnumbered and was looking a bit like we may get sorted out. Had some other mates with us who were not die hard fans and begged us to stand up and blend in and I personally would rather take a hiding than pretend to be a scum fan. After the 3rd goal they then just took the piss mercilessly and all thoughts of a bit of naughtiness left their minds. Not the best day out but all good fun. Did then wipe that away with attendance at that great ''Top of the League'' game which far and away dealt with the dissapointment of the earlier day.  
  2. “There''s one game in particular that we play at home that I''m absolutely desperate to win. I''ll play myself that night if I have to.” Not a major point but I want passion and commitemnt when I watch Norwich and with the manager making comments like the above I do not think you can queston his as the leader of the team. I am beginning to really admire this guy more and more. I must admit to being dissapoined when he was first appointed but how wrong I was.  
  3. Interesting, had forgotten all about him and I did rate him at Fulham.
  4. I know for a fact that he will get the job as he can then replace Grant instead of the other way round
  5. An interesting view from Adam but are his comments made a jounalist or as a fan. I took the piece as being written by him as a fan and therefore removing the important part which is those tough questions actually being asked of the board. I may be hair splitting a little here but what media follow up is intended from this article or is it the case that there will be none at all. Clearly the board will not need to answer what has not been asked
  6. Having read this I really don''t get the point. Is this telling us there was a rift and they did not play for him, that the players were model professionals until the game starts and then it goes to pieces. The thing I never get is that if we do all the right things in training and then the team does not replicate that in the game how can this go on game after game with no change to anything. Not wnating to go down the whole ''Roswell and UFO''s'' conspiracy road but seems like there is something else going on here    
  7. What a day that was and yes it does make you smile   Makes you realise what we are missing doesn''t it
  8. What''s more disgraceful is that we as a club do not seem to have eleven players who can beat or even put up a fight against a below average division 2 side. The dissapointment that PG felt was in the last 15 minutes of a completely lacklustre, spineless performance from a team of players who were outshone by a 37 year old journeyman who fully deserves his pay packet and showed a commitment to a club he does not actually represent. Forget the off field antics but the man in charge picked the eleven and did not fire them up enough to engage the crowd. No hard tackles, no attack minded play nothing of any note at all. 3 or 4 players tried at best the rest just could not be arsed. Players will earn support and while clowns like Robinson, Hughes, Etuhu and McVeigh  stroll around taking the absolute piss then support is not what they will get and the crowd will be off. It is not the losing but the lack of any commitment. PG should bin the clowns and get kids on. I would rather pay my hard earned to watch a team of tryers lose than the shambles we have seen over the last 2 weeks. We had no midfield on Sunday and what changed on Saturday and it is not down to injuries so forget that excuse. I am not slating PG as he has not been here long enough to have proved himself but it is not acceptable to pin his comments on passion after that game as what he said verbatim was aimed at the fans that were not the problem, his team of players were. That is what is unacceptable and concerning to me at least. I am not offended or highly strung but what he said after the game in the heat of the moment was fine but it is not good that on reflection he has chosen to deflect the inability of his team that he chose onto the fans. As one of those fans I do find that to be offensive.  
  9. I am slightly confused by this PG thing. I can agree to a certain extent with the basis of his comments as he was reffering to the last part of the game when we were 1-0 up and not the whole game as it has been represented elsewhere. However I was there and was as nervous as everyone else that we would blow it (as we did) and this affects your mood immensely. The part that confuses me with Grant''s comments is his interview on Radio Norfolk directly before the game when he commented on the previous dire showing at Scum town and that the fans should get better than they had witnessed there. He also went on to say that it was up to the team to inspire the fans and if they didn''t then the team should know what to expect and fans are quiet and negative for a reason.(This is not a verbatim account but my recollection of his comments) I was then confused by his comments after the game regarding the contradiction with his pre match interview and more so greatly concerned by his view that we displayed passion and commitment as this was certainly not in evidence in anyone other than Dublin, Shackell, Drury, Ernie and for @1/2 of the game Hucks. (I think Hucks became deflated by the ref and his dire handling of all challenges on him but he doesn''t always help himself here does he?) I think there is a tendency to go overboard regarding what he has said and I did immediately after reading them in the Sunday Times yesterday but whilst I think what he says in essence could be fair comment as an opinion he may be better suited waiting until the name plaque on his door has stuck on firmly before criticizing those of us that have been about a bit longer particularly given the state of the club immediately prior to his involvement. The players need to show a commitment to the shirt and the fans-it is what they are paid to do and it is not about ability but trying to win, running till you drop, challenging everything and looking like you give a toss.    
  10. Spot on. It is time for that worthless wonder to depart so we can get beck to trying to be any good again
  11. I wanted him out last season and that is now even more evident than it was then. He has done nothing, learnt nothing and changed nothing. It is now time for someone else to take action on the board and turn a nothing into a something. He must go and if the board don''t see that then we clearly have the wrong people in charge at this club.   How many more times must we lose to inept opposition and hear Worthless tell us it won''t happen again, big words with small actions. GO,GO,GO    
  12. McKenzie Gooooo McKenzie Gooooo He scored against the Scum And now he can do one McKenzie Gooooooo
  13. I would like to wish Robert Green all the best for his career at West Ham and hope that he gets a place in the England set up and gets the no 1 spot for the Hammers that he deserves.   He seems a good lad and I hope that he does well. I have enjoyed seeing him between the sticks.
