    Just thought it was interesting how this guy was clearly shouted down by everybody.

    How many people would agre that he had a point now though?

    Or to take away the spin...

    You thought it was interesting that this guy was shouted down by the three posters who bothered to reply.

    Why I can't support the demo

    theolster

    I went away to football a lot as a young man in the 70''s. It was sometimes impossible to not become involved in some of awful things that were attatched to our game at that time. I am glad all that is in the past and that I can relatively safely travel the country, often with my family, these days. I  could even take my young grandchildren without fear now. People who didn''t see those times with their own eyes would never understand how it was.

    I know you have never suggested anyone at the club was on the take but this has been hinted at by some people who like to associate themselves with you.

    The old adage that if you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas would probably suit your predicament.

    Are you going to be ok to sort these now Ray?

    If you still need help it will have to be tomorrow from me.

    I agree with Stirling, am not quite so confident with mine now. But I always tell myself to never change my mind.

    Could You Ever Trust Our Board Again?

    Smudger

    Am I trying to put theolster off the protest? I was just posting a point of view. Does theoslter mind me having my say just as he has his? I have no problem with him and believe he has no problem with me. You on the other hand are aggressive and have bad manners. I could say more but I won''t. I have never had a post refused for being abusive and don''t intend to start now.

    It''s quite possible for posters of differing points of view to get along ok on this board but it seems that only works if you are not involved.

    When we sold Ron Davies back in 19 bla bla!, I couldn''t see life after him...............but we did go on........and to better things!.

    The same rule will apply to any  Earnshaw sale mate.

    That take''s me back Wiz , the first player we signed after Ron Davis was Alan Black , it must have been 63 -64 ,when i was 13 -14 .why i remember it  was because i started the chant off in the Barcley of the top hit at the time ," Black is Black but i want Ron Davis back" wonderful days ,where have they all gone?

    [/quote]

    I remember Alan Black Ray but am too young for the chant! Was there ever a chant for Charlie Billington?

    think about it.... this post is off topic too. I try and be polite on here and I don''t believe I truely upset many people, not intentionally anyway, there are just a lot of double standards around here just now.

    I too travelled to matches in the 70''s. Mascot coaches from Bell Avenue. I never want to see those days return. Now I can safely go on the same buses with my Grandchildren. Who would have thought it back then!

    Mike Walker.

    [quote user="ricky knight"][quote user="nutty nigel"]

    And they forget when he had money to spend at Everton he came up with Daniel Amokachi!

    However nobody can deny his achievements in the first period he was manager here. And those old enough to remember the time he took over will know there was a bigger fuss about the Board showing no ambition than we had over the appointments of Worthington and Grant put together.

    tell me any manager who has not had bad buys, shankley, clough, paisley. ferguson, all admit to making great blunders in the transfer market. i can remember being alot happier with Walkers appointment than Grants, re colchester, as stated by me earlier.

    [/quote]

    No Ricky mate, it wasn''t the fact that he had previously come from Colchester that was the problem with the fans. They perceived that we had shown no ambition whatsoever by promoting our reserve team manager. Of course there was no internet forums at the time but there was still the local press and letters to the editor. It was all soon forgotten about as he became so succesful and will rightfully be well remembered for his achievements.

    Please don''t think that I in anyway support any of the nasty stuff from that thread Theolster. There is no place for that here.

    Calling on the NCISA and all loyal fans

    [quote user="1st Wizard"][quote user="Silver Canary"]

    It''s time for true fans to stand up and be counted. Through the NCISA we should organise a proper protest. I know many of us feel the same. It''s no good keeping protests outside, we should sing "worthy out" throughout the game. If this unsettles the players, the rest of the fans will join us and another home defeat could spell the end for Worthy.

    When we have got rid of him, we should turn on the board as well. They have shown themselves in their true colours lately haven''t they? We want to be led by a board that really cares about Norwich! Is it coincidence that Delia lives in Suffolk do you think?

    If all loyal fans are united in oppostion we can get rid of this lot.

  12. I would think he has to try and big up Gally after making three attempts to replace him! Grant must have amazing motivational skills to get him playing at all after that.

    I have never said that The Doc is a brilliant central defender only that I feel he gets a lot of unwarranted criticism. I feel that he and Shackell are good enough for where we are now and could be good enough to get us where we want to be in this league. The Docs biggest failing for me, and where I totally agree with you, is he has no leadership qualities in the way Dublin/Malky have. Whatever happens we will need cover and competition for these defenders next season because we can''t go into the new season relying on a 38 year old centre forward to play there however much we like him.

    Colin is unlucky to be dropped. I feel Grant prefers Hughes because he is that bit braver and doesn''t let his head drop when it goes wrong as it did for him against Bell on Tuesday.

    If Grant has ambitions to sign Marshall in the summer then I doubt he will bring another keeper in on loan so we could have to make do with this defence for the rest of the season. lets hope we get a couple of clean sheets soon so that confidence grows.

    I have spent far too much time on this Board today but its nice to talk football with you.

    The thread Alex refers to is here. I thought it was disgraceful even though there was some back-tracking halfway through.

    The questions I asked on this thread remained unanswered similarly to the questions I asked you yesterday and in my thread today. I thought they were reasonable questions although I accept that no poster is under any obligation to answer anothers questions.

    I have no reason to doubt your motives are sincere although I feel that they are misguided. I have no problem with you and no wish to fall out with you. My offer to lend you my financial report on Saturday still stands so just say the word and I will take it with me.

    I do however doubt some of the other posters motives, especially from the "has Delia already reclaimed her initial expenditure" thread.

    Sorry ray!

    I got a bit upset with some stuff on this board yesterday and your post got buried.

    Newcastle to win at home to Middleboro is evens with Ladbrokes and that looks value to me.

    Middlesboro had another hard game during the week, it took them penalties to knock West Brom out of the cup. I believe they will have half an eye on a quarter final tie with Man.U. now. Newcastle will be fresher and our always strong at home.

    I keep picking even money chances or better so I expect to be wrong before long!

    Despite the fear of being accused of forming a pack I have to say I wholeheartedly agree with your post Alex.

    A little bird tells me

    That''s why I said it was a rumour. The guy has posted a few times now and seems to have an agenda. I should imagine you must know who he is. Maybe on a truthseeking mission whatever that may be.

     

  17. [quote user="a1canary"]My god, given PGs apparent blindness over our defence, do you think he''s from the Ardiles/Keegan school of management? You know, so long as we score more than the opposition that''s all that matters!? West Ham when he was coach weren''t dissimilar. And we''ve seen how the wheels have come off there.
    Makes for lots of games like that against Luton, which i don''t think i can take, nor is it sustainable, as the above have proved.
    [/quote]

    To be fair a1 PG has attempted to replace the goalkeeper 3 times in the short time he has been here. Each time fate has conspired that Gally returns to the side. It must be frustrating. I doubt he is blind to some of our other failings although it seems obvious that he believed a change in goalkeeper would be sufficient for the time being. I have to say on what I have seen I agree with him, although longterm defensive cover/replacements are definitely neccessary.

     

  18. [quote user="percyvarco"][quote user="mystic megson"]

    Here''s one for the oldies . . . in the late ''60s there was a referee called Roger Kirkpatrick who had mutton chop whiskers which appeared to have migrated downwards from his shiny pate, and was rather shall we say portly.  He was the original attention-seeking ref and his running action featured a waist-high knee lift which always brought the house down.

     

    [/quote]fantastic, I had forgotten him, where are the refs with character nowadays?[/quote]

    Wasn''t there another one called something like Maurice Fussey??? (what a name for a ref!)

     

  19. I can see what you mean Jas, but I''m not really bothered how many they say have renewed. I know I renewed and people like me always will. You already have yours. I think it will be good if the number drops!

    You see, this is very disappointing... I mean, I haven''t been this disappointed since I went to Luton expecting the City fans to be on the players backs and shouting for our board to be sacked, only to find over 1,000 people cheering the side on. What a let down... [^o)]

    There was another rumour on here the other day about NCISA and EDP columnists.

    I didn''t reply though....... cuz Kathy bet I would do before 12 [;)]

     

  24. It''s true that season tickets are not for all and are certainly not a measure of a fans loyalty. I believe we have too many season ticket holders and that this was a mistake by the Board. Each time the number drops through non renewals and not enough people on the waiting list I would like to see the number of ticket holders left capped. If we got down to 16,000 I think it would be a good thing for all parties including the club.

     

     

  25. [quote user="Herb"]I hope the scum lose every game. We don''t need to be relying on them to drag us out of the brown smelly stuff, thats down to us.

    Spot on Herb!

    We need to fight our own battles, I have said all the way through this that I believe we will comfortably avoid relegation. I have yet to see anything to change my mind and nothing could be better than seeing us slowly climb the table while they drop like a stone! Surely we deserve something good to come out of the season. And relegation would be a fair price for them to pay for their cheating of the small businesses and underhand attempts to get out of debt.
