  1. Chelsea in the Cup on a Monday night in the early 70''s and Forest away during Christmas in 2000, I seem to remember we were  2 or 3 down after about half an hour but I stayed until about the 80th minute out of loyalty.

    Corners - Warsss Gorn Orn ?

    [quote user="ZippersLeftFoot"]

    For all their strengths the centre back pairing do not seem to deal with set peieces into the box well.  Ruddy will be a part of this but it constantly seems disorganised in there and the sheer volume of goals coming through this route is a disproportionate worry.  Adding players to the posts would prevent some but until someone controls who is marking and tracking what efforts on our goal will continue - too often we are second to these crosses which means efforts on goal.  It seems we conceed a goal froma  set piece every 2 games in 3;  tighten that discipline up and get a penalty area leader to sort it and it would mean 3 away goals will secure 3 points instead of 1.

    [/quote]Are we perhaps a reasonable Division One team, manager and backroom staff with a few player additions who are facing Championship sides with better dead ball control and more effective and challenging set pieces than we have previously encountered?

    Ipswich sold out

    I was looking for one ticket for the game, but I have had to request it on Wrath as you''re not allowed to ask about tickets on here!

    Automatic Promotion this season

    So it seems from the game yesterday that it won''t be us going up this way, this season.

    What a load of waffle about nothing..... and clearly an indication of what has gone wrong with NCFC in 2010.  Never mind the debt and ownership issues.... just as long as we have enough self important ''jobsworths'' to fill 12 irrelevant positions in a pointless organisation.

    Stunning.
    [/quote] I''m thinking of starting up a Not Interested In NCISA Association, NIINCISAA. If I can get Cluck on board I only need 10 more people to be commmittee (for YC) members and then we can all have a ''mass debate'' for 17 pages amongst the 12 of us while everybody else watches with increasing levels of incredulity.[/quote]

    What a good idea.Ninys for short (shortfatb)

    Then I need not bother to read yours while you need not bother to read ours.

    As Mr Chops is fond of saying " no one forces you to read it".

    You don''t pay to be on here you don''t pay for the web space, so what is your problem?

    If it is club related perhaps joining NCISA may help[:D]

    [/quote]

    If I had a club related issue, why would you and the NCISA be able to help?

    People who give up their own time for the good of others are to be commended, but the NCISA has always had the whiff of self aggrandaisement for the ''in'' few, for me, like a well meaning Scout group or Re-enactment society with the same people at the helm doing much the same thing everytime but vowing it will give different results, when actually the association itself doesn''t matter at all and is merely there to sustain the lives of the key members of that group.

    I''m impressed that Smudger cares enough to bother. As an outsider it seems like some irrelevant occasion between members of a bickering family that I don''t know, nor care to know.How Many NCISA members are there and do they believe that this tawdry bunch represent them or their feelings about the club, whether in crisis or when being moderately successful as they are now?

    I''m impressed that Smudger cares enough to bother, as a non member seems to be only about the 11/12 commitee

    As a mark of respect, I have resigned as chairman of the

    three associations I belong to:

    The Dodo preservation society

    The Betamax appreciation society

    I hope the members who remain keep up the great work

    fantastic hucks tribute vid

    I feel sorry for Cluck who missed it all because neither Darren nor Delia were born in Norwich and, by having no grasp of what being truly Norwich means, were not worthy of having him as a spectator at the club they hi-jacked as owner and star player.

    Lamberts tactics

    I thought it was interesting that we used their refusal to hoof it forward to our advantage by marking all their team when the keeper had the ball forcing them to just pass it around in non dangerous areas and then often kicking it out for a throw in go us. Secondly I think there was an element of conserving energy during certain periods of the game due to the intense heat which allowed us to play til the end.

    Lee Croft

    If it''s already been covered to death then I''m sorry but I can''t find it, Lee Croft going to Huddersfield on a 6 month loan leads me to ask 2 questions, would he have lasted under Lambert if he had stayed and what did Lee Clarke see in him while he was here that I missed?
