    why i love this message board

    [quote user="jas the barclay king"]2 weeks ago : - "paul Lambert is the greatest human being to have ever lived"10pm Friday - Paul Lambert is an idiot!we lose the first game of the season and everyone thinks its a disaster. Lets worry if were are winless after 10 games shall we?people here have some strange expectations of the club, we arent going to spend our way to the premiership and shook look at consolidation this season, Lambert knows what he is doing and is the best manager we have had here since Walker, ok so we lost 1 game. but its ONE game, if we go out and win tonight and saturday then embrake on a 15 match unbeaten run there will still be people baying for blood.Lets see who this seasons "donkey" will be.. someone who will play well but will be chastised because its something to do.. thats the Norwich way isnt it?[/quote]

    errr, I don''t recall anyone calling Lambert an idiot. More and more fans are starting to question some of his decisions as opposed to being slaves to the silly In Lambert We Trust dogma but I certainly don''t recall reading any post in which the Lambert is described as an idiot. proof please.

    Ruddy and Ward

    [quote user="morty"][quote user="Bogbrush"]Didn''t Everton loan Ruddy out to 13 clubs ? Maybe that tells a story. In truth, too early to make a judgement but my view is that he clearly lacks confidence, makes our back four nervous and is prone to dropping clangers. Whether Lambert can boost his confidence and turn him into a good, solid, reliable goalkeeper remains to be seen........ but personally I don''t think so. a poor goalkeeping choice IMO.[/quote]Your username is pretty apt lol.[/quote]

    They say that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit but my infrequent visits to this MB reveal to me that people like you who seem to rely exclusively upon insulting posters whose views you don''t agree with are simply witless. LOL and all that b o l l o x

    Gillingham match report on www.dh6.co.uk

    [quote user="Pabs"]I can''t believe there can be another club''s fans in the country who slate a young striker who has come through the ranks as much as our fans slate Chris Martin.

    What a talent he is, 23 goals last season and a wide variety of goals too. He can score from anywhere and his free kicks are immense! He is still only 22 I think, so let''s give him the backing he deserves. He is actually more level headed than many people think and comes across well on interviews too.

    Well done Chrissy and thanks for the report, Hucks. You Legend.[/quote]

    Mmm... who/where are these fans who "slate" Martin ? I haven''t read or heard any criticism of him for a long time. Anybody with half a footballing brain can see what a bright talent he is.

    Curo's gone so come on down Nelson!

    [quote user="Trent Canary"]"So you dont trust Lambert"Please can we have some balance. Im not the sort of person who will criticize players and managers when they do the slightest thing wrong, however I will never have blind faith in anyone. Lambert has shown he is a good manager. Is he perfect? Of course not. So I dont see how he can be above constructive criticism. I trust him at the moment to do a good job. But do I trust him to do a perfect job and get every decision right? Of course not. As for the actual issue at hand, I havent seen enough of Askou (In training) or Whitbread (At all) to really judge.[/quote]

    Good reponse TC. Lambert has clearly shown what a good manager he is at league 1 level and let''s hope he proves equally as good at Championship level. I haven''t seen enough of Whitbread to make a judgement but I saw Askou a number of times last season and he impressed me (but so did Spillane to be honest). As for Nelson, I think he is a poor man''s Doherty. Good at League One level but definitely too slow and ponderous at Championship level.

    Lambert to aston villa

    [quote user="NCFC-47"]someone had to do itMO''N coming to us though[/quote]

    What ? After Friday nights shambolic performance from the team put together by Lambert after one year in charge ? I don''t think so !
  9. What a poor performance. Lambert has had one year to sort out our defence and, apart from Drury, the defenders appeared clueless. I couldn''t believe how badly they performed and the midfield wasn''t much better either. As for Ruddy, well, what can you say ? Calamitous is probably an appropriate description of him and his performance. The scoreline 3-2 flattered us and IMO Watford could have scored six or, dare I say it, seven goals. Had Gunn been in charge the residents on this MB would have been swarming all over each other to be the most insulting. As for Simeon Jackson, early days of course, but hardly an inspired debut and I reckon good old Cody could beat him for pace. Poor choice IMO, Lambert should have gone for a big target man (Akinfenwa perhaps) because without Holt we look as threatening as a dead sheep. All in all, after the inevitable build-up of expectations, a thoroughly depressing Championship opener. Let''s hope that Lambert can replicate Gunn last year and motivate the team to bounce back tonight with a 4-0 victory and some scintillating football aka the away performance against Yeovil. I will be delighted if he does.

    MacNamee is shit ?! how very dare you, he was brought in by Lambert and lambert does no wrong. Please do not post such heresies on this MB again.

    It doesnt matter if Russel isnt in the same league! Its relative! And anyway so is russel far from the concept of the breadline! ..The point is,anyone (as long as they are not in a situation where it was imperative for them to earn more wonga),would not automatically go to another club for even more money....

    [/quote]Yes, I think we all agree on that.Darel Russell, specifically, did go looking for more money.Not all players would automatically do that.  He did.[/quote]

    ........... and given that he is not in the same league as Gerrard etc, Russell will not have loads of "wonga" so cannot be blamed for hoping for a last big pay day. After all, what''s he going to do when his footballing career is over ? In anycase, not sure why so many of you are p''d off that he''s gone, as most of the posts about him over the last twelve months have been critical. I''ve always rated him and I''m surprised we let him go but given that we clearly did not make enough of an effort to keep him we should have sold him when we had the chance in january.
  12. [quote user="CanaryJames"]I''ve witnessed several similar cases in magistrates courts, and they get adjourned for all sorts of reasons.

    Often, the person being required at work is ample reason to ''postpone'' the case until another date.

    In fact, one case I saw was adjourned due to the defendant being unable to find a babysitter for his child!

    Even if wasn''t adjourned, these kinds of cases are often settled in literally a matter of minutes.

    The only issue is if (for whatever reason) there''s a hold-up/back-log at the courts, and Holt''s case doesn''t begin on time. But then even if that happened it''d probably end up being adjourned before mid-day, leaving plenty of time to get back.

    I''d be very surprised if Holt doesn''t play tomorrow.[/quote]

    Given that Magistrates Courts operate during the working week being required at work is not an acceptable excuse unless perhaps you are a brain surgeon. Needing to play football for your club is not a valid reason for adjournment which is why it was rejected.

    Not having someone to look after your baby is of course a valid excuse however unbelievable it might be that the accused can''t find a baby sitter.

    I agree that Holt will be available, because let''s face it, the cost of a helicopter to bring him to Norfolk is not going to be prohibitive.

  14. [quote user="ron obvious"]Is it not possible for the club to ask for the hearing to be rescheduled? It''s extremely unfortunate, being one of the few weekdays during the year when he''s needed.

    [/quote]

    The Pink Un reports solemnly that "Holt''s legal team tried to get the case adjourned to enable him to play, but magistrates at Shrewsbury refused his solicitor''s request."

    Why the feck you need a legal team to apply for an adjournment God knows. In any case, what a formidable argument o support an application for an adjournment i.e. "our client is playing football on that day, your honour" ! The only surprise is that the Court Administrator didn''t reply saying that , if found guilty, Holt would be required to return for sentence hearing on 28th September at 16.30.

  15. You can''t blame Russell for choosing financial security over loyalty to Norwich at this stage of his career. In any case loyalty is a two way thing. Clubs are quick to dispose of players when they are no longer required so you can''t blame players for showing the same lack of loyalty to clubs. Gunn''s refusal to sell Russell, despite significant pressure from several quarters, was impressive and Russell played a vital role for the team despite initial problems with Lambert. The Pink Un today refers to Lambert''s refusal to sell Russell in January despite offers being received and I find that very strange and IMO pretty stuipid bearing in mind that Lambert had months to identify and bring in a replacement for Russell which would have enabled the club to sell him in January. Instead, nothing was done and he left on a free at the end of the season.
