  1. With QPR 7th in the league, Jim Magilton must be laughing his a*se off.
  2. [quote user="Yella Foreva"]As the topic suggests i just wanted to say hello to everyone. As you can tell i am a newcomer to the board and just wanted to say hello and briefly give some of my thoughts about our beloved team. Although i dont personally feel the way McNally went about sacking Gunn was right, i do however feel the dicision was the correct one and the decision to bring a friend to the club in Paul Lambert a stroke of genius. Paul Lambert in my oppinion has the potential to be our best manager for a very long time. Not only has he excelled in getting a vast amount of quality out of what seemed a very averyage/poor bunch of players (after the Colchester game), but he is bringing through some excellent youth products who in my oppinion bleed yellow and green. If this man and team can stick together for a season or two, along with a couple of new signings, i believe the club can get back on track to where it belongs. Once again a big hello to everyone, I await my pinkun bashing ;)[/quote]If you want to bash your pink''un there are much better sites than this you can visit!
  3. [quote user="kentcanary"]Anyone know what he does at the club? Came with Lambert from Colchester but have heard nothing about him since.[/quote]I believe that he shoots burglars.
  4. [quote user="singing canary"]he is a work horse and gives it 100 percent !![/quote]With a massive schlong.
  5. [quote user="nutty nigel"]Keelan always seemed to save City Bly. We should than Shack for starting this thread because it brings back so many great memories. Two more quick memories to share. One is from the late 60''s and a home game against Millwall. They had a little forward by the name of Derek Possee. he used to play with Keith Weller and they came from Spurs as I remember. Possee was a short striker although he had a fair old leap on him. Any way, he went in a bit hard on ''our Kev'' and upset the great man. Now I think if they had been at all compatible in size Keelan would have given him the ''Northampton treatment'' but the difference in stature of the two men made that impossible. Keelan looked down at a stroppy little Derek Possee and slammed the ball down so hard on his head that he left him poleaxed on the deck. The referee came running over and gave a penalty and if I remember rightly booked Keelan. However violent conduct didn''t often earn a sending off in those days and Keelan remained to face the penalty. Mr Weller, famous in later years for wearing tights to play football, put the penalty wide for the biggest cheer of the afternoon. The other one was my first visit to Old Trafford and the only time I actually saw George Best play. It was back in the early 70''s and it was the game after the famous boardroom bust up where Ron Saunders resigned. The game was only memorable for the skills of Best and Keelan. Best tried everything and Keelan saved everything. I don''t remember much else about the game which finished 0-0, but seeing those two great players on the same pitch was something I will always remember. There is no higher accolade than that from me.     [/quote] I seem to remember playing Birmingham ( who we really hated in the 70''s) at Carrow Road, KK being penalised for bringing down Bob Hatton, saving the penalty and then punching Hatton for diving. But I don''t think he was sent off.
  6. [quote user="Fellas"]I thought our back two today were very good Askou in particular. Askou is very calm and composed on the ball and knows where to put it if in doubt. Charlton had a grand total of zero chances second half mostly down to those two. The two goals we conceded were sloppy but neither of their faults really. I personally thought it was a great show against really the two best strikers in this league. In that was it was promising and I feel with our midfield working as hard as they are, clean sheets will be a more regular occurrence this season. For me Russell was a key part in the game. He and Smith bossed the midfield, we weren''t pushed around by Charlton and their cloggers and to be honest would you want a fouling match against Russell, I sure as hell wouldn''t. If we had taken our chances then we would have breezed the game. We created loads and loads in the first half and that''s certainly and area we have seen a vast improvement on. I''m not convinced on Daley yet and I personally feel McVeigh gives you a lot more, but his pace is good and he''s young.Hoolahan played very well today, finally in the role he should be playing in. He played the ball well and looked fit, which is testimony to a good professional. I just wished he would train a bit on kicking with his right peg (and Daley with his left foot) because at times that cost us in the box.Some finally points, Charlton are going to be there for promotion their centre backs are fearsome and upfront they are far too talented for this league. If they keep getting refs like this then they''re foul their way out of trouble in every game.The Ref was shocking again today. I understand it''s league 1 but I''m appaled that some of these guys are professionals. Hopefully the FA will be able to review (it''s a plain ridiculous system) the Bailey incident and give a fitting punishment, because whilst we let teams get away with malicious fouls and the cynical fouls that Charlton deemed to be part of football. I pay to watch football not rugby games. [/quote]I thought Russell looked a different class, tough in the tackle, in control and with time to make the right pass, rarely wasting a ball. He looked the mature leader in control with Smith as the tyro doing the leg work, unlike last year where he was leaden, late in the tackle and angry most of the time.
  7. [quote user="singing canary"]back you 100 percent smudger ..[/quote]To do what?
  8. [quote user="Robert Ketts Yellow Army"]Norwich will go down this season, mark my words[/quote]Why don''t you and Freebie City just PM each other rather than annoying everyone else. Robert Kett would have torn your head off and stuffed it up your lily livered ar*e, how dear you associate your mewling with a true Norfolk hero?
  9. [quote user="Marty"][quote user="Beauseant"]Few sides would be able to handle losing their playmaker, their most experienced centre back and their most experienced defender without finding it tough. At the end of the day we lost to a brilliant free kick and a dodgy penalty having had a prefectly good one for us ignored. The lads worked their nuts off and deserve a bit of support rather than this hand wringing "we''re going to struggle" crap.[/quote] that sums it up pretty well. It is unusual to lose 3 players in 55 mins, no chance of any tactical subs. I thought the defence looked pretty good until mid way through the 2nd half. [/quote]Totally agree, can''t believe people are being so negative, we were shafted by fate, an awful referee and his knob cheese assistant. Poor Holt worked his nuts off and the ref constantly penalised him without cause. I think we''ll beat Charlton at home on Saturday.   
  10. [quote user="Chunky Norwich"]I can''t remember the exact details but I''m sure Amir Khan is currently trying to sue Facebook for something that someone wrote about him or a group or something. Would set a precedent. Also, wasn''t the Internet created by an Englishmen, not America or the Swiss?[/quote]I believe Bryan Gunn invented the internet before a game rather than sorting his bloody team out like he should have been doing.
  11. Can it be any more libellous than Shack Attack''s revelation on the other Gunn being fired thread?!
  12. [quote user="BlyBlyBabes"]I wonder if they''ll sing from the same hymn sheet? OTBC   [/quote]Given there''s no money, they will probably have to share one.
  13. and Jamie Lad arrived about a yard and a half earlier than he needed to. 
  14. [quote user="Bob Franklin"][quote user="Shack Attack"] [quote user="Matt Juler"]I''m all for creative players doing creative things in the attacking third, but Hoolahan comes too deep looking for the ball. He then screws up on the halfway line instead of playing a simple ball and bang, we''re suddenly 0-1 down against a very poor Walsall team.[/quote] But surely that''s because he''s being played in the wrong position? He needs to be receiving the ball 30-40 yards out from the opposition goal in between their defence and midfield. Then we might actually see what he''s capable of. Having a good ''shape'' and being solid is all very good, and a vast improvement on the chaos of Gunny''s team, but it won''t take long for teams to work us out. Worthy''s teams always had a good shape, with a solid back four, Holt screening in fron of them and two workhorses (Svensson and McKenzie) up front, but they had that air of unpredictability with Hucks. We''ll be comfortably safe with the team that Lambert is putting out at the minute but we need more creativity if we''re going to push further up the table. For that very reason I''d give Hoolahan a run in a more advanced central position or, if Lambert is really being forced to offload him, get somebody in on loan who can play there. [/quote]   I don''t agree with your "chaos of Gunny''s team" remark. Which game are you referring to ? Our 4-0 hammering away from home of Yeovil, our successful pre-season games or the one-off freak result against Colchester ? Must be the latter, I guess ! That having been said, I completely agree that Hoolahan needs to be in the team playing in advance position IMO instead of Cureton. It seems that Hoolahan either :-   a) does not fit in with Lamboot''s up and under "tactic" b) has fallen out big time with Lamboot or, more likely, Lamboot has been told by Chief Constable David McNally to offload Hoolahan and he will leave us on loan in the next few days. [/quote]Lamboot, very clever and extremely funny, even the third time.
  15. [quote user="6th May 1939"]It''s pretty easy to second-guess anything after it has gone wrong. Personally I didn''t think it looked a bad decision in January. But what I don''t understand is why the re-appointment in May when he had manifestly failed. And making a decision of that magnitude before appointing the new CE and new board members was ludicrous. I''m still of the belief, though, that something else has happened since May other than the 1-7 to get him sacked so quickly.[/quote]Delia and Michael re-appointed him, new CEO and Chair turned up and wanted him gone. Surely that''s all there is to it?
  16. [quote user="yellow hammer"][quote user="cityangel"][quote user="yellow hammer"]It''s opinion that NCISA has something of a "split personality". On the one hand it raises money for the academy and sponsors a member of the coaching staff (I believe my facts on this are up to date) which puts NCSIA inside the tent. On the other hand NCISA is a critic of of the club when it feels the club is not looking after the best interests of the fans. This side of NCISA puts it outside of the tent. .[/quote] NCISA are not sponsoring any member of the club''s management, players or coaching team this season, I asked that questions before the season started. Don''t think they are running the Canary Challenge either this season which used to raise money for the Academy but Kathy will no doubt confirm this. So they are outside and not inside the tent this season. [:)] [/quote] Well I did hedge my facts in parenthesis, City Angel, because I had discussed with John Tilson about what forms of action NCISA would take if push came to shove and he informed me then that NCISA were sponsoring one of the coaching staff. But that was last season and you may well be right that this season they are no longer doing so. But my main thrust was whether NCISA could do both tasks and be effective at both tasks without conflict of interest. Now don''t get me wrong. I''m not saying that it wrong for NCISA to do either of things - they are both worthy and should be done. I am asking whether it cause conflict and confusion among the fans just exactly what NCISA is there for. Now I''ve heard it said they are there to put the fans'' interests in front of the club, bt obviously raising money and raising criticisms are both in the interests of the fans. So I think we have to push the envelop a little harder and perhaps NCISA would be better off to sharpen it''s focus a little. As Blah says, should NCISA be in the tent or shouting from the outside? What would be the more effective approach? Would they be better off as an elected replacement for the current supporters consultative group or would they be more effective if they were seen to be more independent. To be honest, I don''t know the answer![/quote] What do they do for either side of the tent? I''m not being rude, I just don''t know what value they add in any area in terms of debate, fund raising, leadership or whatever. 
  17. [quote user="I am a Banana"]give it a break, he will play  for norwich again![/quote]Yeah, in the panto at the Theatre Royal.

  20. [quote user="Bury Green"][quote user="nutty nigel"][quote user="Jim Smith"] If they make us successful I could not give two hoots whether they have made their money from the adult entertainment industry. I believe 95% of our fans would say the same. If you would rather we were nice and pure but unsuccessful then thats your perogative but unfortunately with that attitude we are unlikley to get anywhere in football these days. [/quote] I agree with Jim but I am not convinced they would make us successful. In the time they were at Birmingham they got them relegated a few times. Spent a season in the third division. Spent loads of dosh on concrete. Appointed plenty of crap managers. And had a spell in the Prem but never managed to get far above the trap door. This did not meet with their fans expectations. It''s not about where their money came from it''s about the football decisions on how it''s spent. Appointing rubbish managers is just that whoever appoints them. And wasting the player budget won''t bring success whoevers money it is.   [/quote] Well it certainly has a familiar ring to it, one promotion and two relegations in fourteen years and a host of failed managers, who could it be? [/quote]Familiar ring, very good.

  22. There is no denying that he is very fond of his dog. Beyond that I have no opinion, perhaps this was a one off situation where he had run out of biscuits.
  23. [quote user="Bobert"][quote user="Mr Rich"]Am I alone in being horrified at the idea of a pornographer taking over our beloved club? I''d struggle to pay money for a single match ticket, let alone a season ticket, to such dubious characters.Fortunately, as others have pointed out, this is mere speculation at the moment.Sure, Delia & Michael have made some strange decisions at times, but at least they are genuine supporters of City, unlike Gold and Sullivan.[/quote] Well I am with you Mr Rich. One needs to have some standards in life. [/quote]I can''t be bothered to read all this, but has anybody actually said Sullivan and Gold may have their knockers but I''m right behind them, if not I''m glad to be the first.
  24. [quote user="ncfcfaithful"][quote user="marki61422"]"I think the first names on Lamberts team sheet are Alnwick if he''s fit" You stupid stupid idiot.You must be blind,can''t you see that he has no ability,no confidence.Hopefully Alnwick will never play for Norwich again.If he does please please watch him more carefully than you surely have before,then you may come to the conclusion that he is crap as most other sensible Norwich supporters have done.[/quote] While there is no need to call anyone an idiot i have to say I have not been too impressed with Alnwick.  His handling on crosses isn''t great and his place kicks are just as random as Marshalls were.  In fact in the games i''ve been to over 50% of his place kicks have been aimed at either McDonald or Cureton when clearly Holt is the target man.  I also don''t think he is brave enough.  If he had come out with his hands to collect the ball on Monday night the clash would not have been as bad. He also made the same mistake in the first half which nearly led to a goal.  I personally would rather see us blooding one of our own youngsters. [/quote]''blooding'', very droll.
