    I have no problem with people who have different views to me, thats what messageboards are about. However, I do have a problem with people who make stuff up and post it on here to show the club and/or the players in a bad light. And, I will go even further and say that anyone who makes up stuff to show the club and/or players in a bad light cannot possibly be a true fan or a real fan or, in fact, any sort of fan at all!

    As said by another poster just the other day... digest that at your leisure!

    I hope that isn''t refering to me.... because evrything that I have stated has been truth and/or comment from the club  itself...

    Discuss at your leisure...

    Like Ricky says, I don''t give a monkeys what anybody thinks, time will prove me and a few others right... and those of you that have towed the party line wrong...

    I am sure of that and will await your apologies...  not that I would expect any because that is of no importance to me...

    What is of importance to me is that Delia & Co stop ripping the Norfolk public off!!!

    [/quote]

    "We let Malky go for free"?

    Please explain to me where that is the truth and/or comment from the club itself...

    I am sure its not and I await your apologies.. not that I expect any and its no importance to me either.

    I honestly don''t feel I am being ripped off by Delia. Am I seriously the only person on this board who feels that way??

    I want this club to win no matter how I feel about the manager. If we win it''s going to be a great weekend - lose and the keyboard takes a hammering.
    [/quote]

    So does this mean that in your view this message board is only for ranting when we lose and  not a place to celebrate if we win?

    Perhaps we could have 2 boards. One for the weeks we win and one for when we lose!

    not being an "old Codger" like the majority in this thread i have no such memories of days of yore!

    Suttons Header in the FA cup 1/4 final Replay, Sutch vs the Villa, Gozzas Goals, Efan Ekoku being the first Norwich player to socre a goal in europe, Motty Shouting "VALENCIA!!!! OH fine save by Bryan Gunn" in Munich when the big man spread himself infront of a point blank header to win us the biggest game in our history, Sutton and Foxys Dance, Chase out!, the playoff Final and the Premiership...

    Some fine memories of my 15 years as a fan... not sure we''ll see those days again.... dam shame... I still remember Sutton Running over to right infront of me when i was a boy after scoring the winner in that cup match.

    We''ll have good days again, you will probably have more than us old codgers.

    That''s ridiculous Blah! We will always have it. Maybe what you meant is that when the club is struggling we compare it to the "good old days" and when we are succesful we compare to the "bad old days". That my friend is a fact of life!

    [quote user="Dicky"][quote user="Smudger"][quote user="ZippersLeftFoot"]

    Its a curious thing when players mistakes are picked upon,  doc and shacks have looked very good together but did make mistakes against Palace which cost us goals;   yet we should have been comfortably ahead by then had the strikers done their job and taken relatively easy chances - earnie had good chances in the games against palace QPR and Southend which have cost us possibly 5 points - where is the criticism of him?

    Doc is a consistent performer who had a howler - every city player has done that this season;  however he has also performed very well at the back this season and those performances are conveniently overlooked.  He is not perfect and his game has many flaws,  but he is far from the main reason why we are in the position we are...

    [/quote]

    Yeah consistently c**p!!!

    Anybody that rates the Doc much better than your average park footballer knows sweet FA about football...

    I could do a better job at the back than the Doc...  one of the worst players ever to pull on a yellow & green shirt and almost certainly the worst CB in the last 30 years at the club!

    [/quote]

    How can you possibly say that with any authority, having admitted yourself that you have not been to carrow road recently?  As for being the worst CB in the last 30 years? 

    [/quote]

    As I pointed out earlier Dicky, The Doc has made mistakes live on TV. Posters see what they want to see anyway and sometimes I think it''s a waste of time having these discussions on here. I don''t see anybody claiming that Doherty is a great player yet I see claims that he is a donkey. Nobody has even said he is a better defender than DD although I believe there''s little in it and certainly not enough to play Dublin out of position. As ZLF rightly points out, there were more mistakes at the other end on NYD and these are conveniently overlooked.

    As for worst CB in the last 30 years??? Howabout NO!!!!!

    I don''t understand why certain players are singled out for an undeserved amount of criticism on here and some get away with it. IMO the player to have made the most costly mistakes this season is Gally. Now if you remove the hapless Simon Tracey from the equation he could quite possibly be the worst ''keeper in 30 years at the club!

     

  10. [quote user="Old Boy"]My opinion of Carl Robinson: a central midfielder of considerable skill and athleticism who doesn''t have the influence on games that he could have. He is capable of being a very effective playmaker because of his distribution with both feet and head, but often fails to show leadership and allows opposition midfielders to dominate.

    Note that this analysis applies equally well to Etuhu and Safri.
    [/quote]

    Fair profile Old Boy.

    Now maybe one of the original posters could point out the inaccuracies of the original profile????

     

  11. nutty nigel

    Gary doherty

    Stats can be misleading but the stats regarding The Doc consistently refute the claims made on here by posters. Unfortunately many posters only saw the live TV games and that mistake against Burnley and the misconception that he spent the whole 90 mins at Poorman Road fouling Lee. Do people really think that the referee for some totally unknown reason decided to ignore those fouls on Lee and in fact give freekicks in Dohertys favour or could it have been possible that Lee was consistently fouling and backing in to The Doc.

    Doherty''s mistake for Palaces 2nd goal was because he took too long to get rid of the ball, it was poor judgement and decision making on his part. However he more than anyone try''s to play the ball out of defence into space for Huckerby or Earnshaw rather than just aimlessly hoofing it up the field.

    Dublin is our best centreback but he is also our best centreforward (notice I said centreforward not forward). I believe that a back four of Colin - Doherty - Shackell - Drury is good enough for this league and I think Grant does too.

    If you really want to use stats to back up what is our best combination at the back then shots on target against us would be the ones to use.

  12. [quote user="Hello City"]As much as he is picked on on these boards, I think hogesar was trying to point out that the profile description was somewhat innaccurate and is needed to be fiddled with a tad to become a bit more accurate!![/quote]

    I think hogesar was having a joke, however if you seriously think that profile description is innaccurate why not write an accurate one here so we can compare.

    Tamworth Attack Delia

    [quote user="jas the barclay king"]

    "if she shows up" is what one Tamworth Fan said on here earlier...

    yes she will.. but expect her to sneak out if it all goes Pete Tong so as not to incur the wrath of the travelling fans...

    Defeat to Tamworth COULD be the beginning of the end for Delia

    jas :)

    [/quote]

    I have never known Delia, MWJ or even Munby to hide from the travelling fans. Even after some of the worst "no shows" of last season one of them would be there after the game listening to the disgruntled fans.

    They are braver than me for sure!

     

     

  14. nutty nigel

    Gary doherty

    The biggest problem The Doc has is that he had a couple of "mares" when we were live on TV.

     

  15. nutty nigel

    Gary doherty

    It''s entirely possible that the best combination could be Doherty and Dublin! However, Dublin is our best centreforward and goals win games!

     

  16. nutty nigel

    Grants big mouth may lose targets.

    How do we know Riorden is a target? We just have to wait and see, it could be a smokescreen for all we know!

    Has anyone on these boards seen Riordan or Pearson play? Whay type of players are they? Would they be good targets for us?

    Only TRUE supporters go to games!.

    Top post Jack Flash!

    Yes we lost at Palace and it was through mistakes all over the pitch and not just at the back. The Doc''s mistake was unforgivable but so was the goalkeepers for the first goal and Shackells for the third. So were so many missed chances. Posters on here criticise Doherty for giving away freekicks when the truth is Shackell gives away more. Shackell gets twice as many yellow cards as The Doc too but it''s not noticed on this board. I rate Shackell too but I''m just making these points top make a point. We should never have lost the game after dominating for such long periods. But reading this message board the next day and the rants that were going on about the team was unreal. There was a whole thread about Safri and Robinson, they both played and they both played well. Hughes had a good game doing what he does best and we looked a poorer side when he was replaced by Croft.

    Would posters please note that these are opinions I made from watching the game and they don''t make me a better fan than anyone who didn''t go although they probably are a more accurate reflection of what happened.

    Only TRUE supporters go to games!.

    [quote user="a1canary"]120% agree with that wizard. What really bugs me and gets trotted out more than most is the one about how long someone''s been a fan. You know the type - "i''ve been supporting city for 20 years and i deserve to be able..." blah blah.

    Some posters on here haven''t been alive that long - does that make them inferior supporters? I think not!
    (Take note cluck!)
    [/quote]

    Oops...... I did post earlier that I had been a supporter for 40 years but it was a critical post to illustrate how the club has always sold their best forwards......  so I think I got away with it!!!! [;)]

    This "true fans" argument is always cropping up on here Wiz. You and I both used it a couple of days ago to prove a point and then both apologised!

    I go to games as often as I can because I love going to games.I give up other things to afford to go because I choose to. I don''t deserve any medals neither am I a better fan than others. Like everyone else I spend my money doing what I want the most.

    What I have discovered though is that it''s impossible to get an objective view on performances from watching on the wireless, canary call and this messageboard.

     i remember putting dough in to buy gerry howshall years ago, we were part of the club.

    I remember that too, I was a right youngster at the time and didn''t question anything from the club. But looking back, didn''t you feel a little "ripped off" at what you got for your money??

     

    [/quote]

    no because thats where were at at the time but now i expect alot more than a gerry howshall equivalent, if you know what i mean.

    [/quote]

    I sort of get what you mean.

    I remember Howshall injured a lot. He was a bit like MLJ or Neil Emblem for injuries in my memory. We paid WBA £25,000 for him which was a lot of money for Norwich in those days. A month earlier we had paid the same club £10,000 for a certain Kenny Foggo!

    Let''s hope we only get the Foggo''s in this transfer window! [;)]

    Dont become a selling club

    [quote user="USAcanary"]

    At one time we held the record for selling the most 1 million+ players than any other team in football.

    And I bet at that time we had never paid 1 million for a player. It''s always been that way, even in the succesful times.

    Zonal Marking? No!

    [quote user="Attack Barclay 2nd Half"]Its not this manager, Worthington persisted with it - drove me nuts.... It enables attacking teams to control possession and gain confidence.
    [/quote]

    Our main problem with zonal marking, at least on set pieces, is the goalkeeper. We have conceded far too many goals from crosses in and around the 6 yard box. It seemed to me that Lee Camp intercepted more crosses in the Leicester game than Gally has all season.

    Robinson back in the middle

    How crazy is this thread???

    For the record Robinson did ok yesterday and was very influential when we totally dominated the first 20 minutes. I thought Safri did ok too as did Hughes. The midfield wasn''t the problem yesterday, it was individual mistakes in defence and a stack of missed chances up front.

    I was cold tired and fed after the game but this crazy thread reminds me I''m glad I went and didn''t watch it on the wireless.

    Dont become a selling club

    [quote user="allways travelling"]Just been reading a few things on the norwich site with referance to earnshaw with granty saying everyone has there price.On this occasion i feeel that should be incorrect to lose earny woukd be disastrouse as like ashton everytime we get someone wholooks really promising and 17 goals already in the bag.He is priceless at the moment we sell him and our future goes down the pan after losing ashton this will be one player to many in my eyes.[/quote]

    I have supported the club for 40 years and they always have been a selling club. The first I remember was Ron Davies to Southampton. Can anyone older remember when we didnt sell our most valuable forwards?
