  1. [quote user="blahblahblah"][quote] I will reassess my opinion of Manderic at the end of the season. [/quote] Yeah good idea Foghorn, we will have forgotten about him by then, it''ll be harder to make fun of you.  Unless he''s on his 15th manager by then... [;)] [/quote] Leave the poor boy alone, he''s not having a good day and we haven''t even mentioned Southampton yet [li][st][um]  
  2. [quote user="Citizen Journalist Foghorn"]  and don''t go back any for another 5 years or we really are in the doggy do season after season [/quote] You just never felt more like singing the blues CJF, but Norwich win and piswich lose. This is just a load more rubbish made up by one of our resident wannabe binner boys. 90/91 through to 99/00 seasons:- P17 W9 D2 L6 Read it and weep little boy blue [:P]  
  3. Now wouldn''t that really make you wish we had sold out to Mandaric in the summer. That would make three managers since he took over at Leicester - Worthington, Allen and Megson! It''s easy to see why so many posters hold him in such high regard [*-)]  
  4. [8]The other man''s grass is always greener The sun shines brighter on the other side The other man''s grass is always greener Some are lucky, some are not But just be thankful for what you''ve got Is that polite enough for ya Wiz [;)]  
  5. I agree with Ricky in that Grant has a long way to go if he is going to emulate what Worthy did at our club. It should be remembered that only 3 managers in our history have ever won this league and only one has taken us to the play offs. I hope Grant betters that but he will be a hero if he manages to equal the success that Worthy had at our club.  
  6. [quote user="charlies dad"] OK Nutty N. 3 in 12 sounds much nicer... 2 defeats and a draw in 3 sounds like monotonous regularity to me. In fact one defeat to them, is too regular for my liking, but i digress. I too, remember the seventies - when, thanks to a very good manager, they consistently beat us, with a team containing 10 internationals, against John bonds newly established top flight side. The situation is different now, and our neighbours are no longer one of the top five sides in the country.    [/quote] You have it your way Charlies Dad and I''ll have it mine. I''ll put on my Mr. Magoo extra strength yellow and green goggles and distort the results to show why we are better than them. You will put on your trendy specsavers blue tinted spectacles and distort them to make it seem they are better than us. I just find it difficult to understand why you would want to [*-)] I have been to every derby match at Portman Road this century and only seen us lose once [:D][Y]
  7. [quote user="charlies dad"][quote user="nutty nigel"][quote user="Hardhouse44"] You ask a question If Ipswich can beat Palace at home why can''t we. Here''s something that may never have dawned on the blinkered brigade. They are better than us that''s why! [/quote]   [8] But I see your true colors shining through I see your true colors and that''s why you''re a blue  so don''t be afraid to let them show your true colors true colors are beautiful when they''re yellow [;)]   [/quote]As painful as it might be, the plain fact is ipsich are better than us, in every repsect other than one - support. Thats why they consistantly beat us, with irritating regularity, and finish above us in the league. To the eternal shame of the board, management and players of Norwich city football club.[/quote] Oh look.. they''re queueing up now [:|] Charlies Dad - In the last 12 games against that lot from down the road we have lost 3, that is not irritating regularity. They have finished above us in the league only once in the last 4 seasons so that is hardly consistently finishing above us. Of course back in the 70''s and 80''s they did quite often finish above us but I never felt it was to the eternal shame of the board, management and players of Norwich City Football Club. HH44 - So through your crystal clear but slightly tinted with the brown stuff vision express spectacles do you see us being as good as Sheffield United based on current league position, and better than Coventry based on last seasons league position and better than Birmingham because we did them twice last season?[:^)] CJF - You got so carried away with making a case for your boys in blue that you remembered them doing better than they actually did [:#] Has that ever happened when you post about the boys in yellow? [:^)] I try not to hurl out childish insults on this board, like calling posters binners if they don''t agree with me. But when they make up stuff about that lot from down the road and use it a a stick to beat our beloved Canaries what is a guy supposed to think? Oh, and, Bly - I already stated that I am proud of my goggles[8-|] so surely even you have worked out that I would not be insulted by you drawing attention to them [:P]

  10. [quote user="Citizen Journalist Foghorn"] Jim Duffy is another hardline type of guy like the exceptional managerial talent Peter Grant, I guess thats why Peter Grant was looking for a more affable fella to come in as coach.  Now that is being cleverer than the rest!! [|-)] http://scotlandonsunday.scotsman.com/sport.cfm?id=578082007 [/quote] maybe we should have kept Livermore then [:^)] But then again weren''t you one of the fiercest critics of the so called "Costa Del Norwich" comfort zone under the previous management. But then again maybe your just one of the fiercest critics..... How long before "we want worthy back" with his sunbeds for the fans favourites[H]  
  11. [quote user="Shack Attack"] Fair do''s Bly, you were there and I wasn''t. [/quote] If I''d known you were going Bly I would have asked you to get me a program [;)]  
  12. [quote user="Citizen Journalist Foghorn"][quote user="nutty nigel"] [quote user="MK Canary"]Why would Martin Allen be interested in taking an Assistant Managers position by the side of someone with less managerial experience than himself? [/quote] Jim Duffy did just that, ask him why?! [*-)]   [/quote] errrrr perhaps due to his less than brilliant recent managerial record...... [/quote] So is Martin Allens record better than Jim Duffy''s? You really don''t ever have anything good to say about anyone connected to the club you claim to support. I''ll tell you what - why don''t we just appoint management teams that rhyme, then we could have your beloved Mike Newell with Paul Jewell or your beloved George Burley with Kenny Lunt! [:P]  
  13. I think you''re right Old Shuck, the Premiership is nearly there now but I bet they would prefer Leeds, Nottm. F., Sheffield Wednesday and maybe Wolves over Wigan, Reading, Fulham and maybe Portsmouth. The G14 seem to make veiled threats about breaking away every little while but I don''t think it has come very close to happening yet. Chelsea were outsiders a couple of years ago and are not in the G14.  Liverpool, Man.Utd and Arsenal were like the "Landed Gentry" and Chelsea the "Lottery Louts" in comparison. But the change in ownership of the big three now means that in essence they are "Lottery Louts" too. But on the European stage  only Liverpool are in the top two tiers of the G14 with Real Madrid, AC Milan, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich. Our big fours ''financial clout'' will not influence those illustrious clubs and in fact if they move away too much from tradition it could alienate them to the point where they are treated like Lottery Louts by the likes of  Real Madrid.  
  14. [quote user="BlyBlyBabes"][ Where did we get, for example,  Duncan Forbes, Barry Butler, Dave Stringer, Dave Watson, Ian Butterworth, Spencer Prior, Malky Mackay, Andy Linighan, Steve Bruce, John Polston, Craig Flemming, Steve Walford etc..........??? All of them cost relatively little. All secured through scouts, managers and NCFC boards quietly and efficiently doing their work. [/quote] We got them from the same sort of places that we got Gary Doherty, Dion Dublin, Jason Shackell and Ian Murray. Where in my post do I defend the bored[|-)] ffs. Did I even mention the bored[|-)] I''m just not of the opinion that just anybody is better than we have now. What is it about the four players I have mentioned that you don''t like. Or have you actually seen any of them play? England are on again tonight so there''ll be some football for you to talk about in the morning [:P]  
  15. And it probably cost the bored [|-)] a few quid to persuade CJW [8-|] to come up with a story that made it look like other chumpionship clubs had been prepared to ''make do'' too [;)]    
  16. This has been on the cards for a long time but it''s unlikely to happen until the Premier League is full of the clubs that those with the power want to be there. Let''s be honest, relegation was already scrapped last season for West Ham but not for Sheffield United. If disaster happened to one of Manchester United, Arsenal or Liverpool and they finished in the bottom 3 there would be some loophole found to ensure they weren''t relegated. Just like a couple of seasons ago Liverpool managed to get into the Champions League even though they finished 5th in the Premiership. Yes, I know they were defending their title but would the rules have been bent the same for say Chelsea or another of the clubs not in the G14? Premier League football and Champions League football is just for TV and merchandise now. Come what may the stars must appear.

  18. Zip - I can''t believe that Spillane is only 5''9" tall! Have you seen him on the pitch? He looks over 6'' to me! Take a look at the squad photo, he is at least as tall as Ryan Jarvis who is 6''1"" and probably nearly as tall as Dion Dublin who is 6''2". Either that or he is stood on the crate you used to use in the River End [;)][:P]  
  19. Is derehamcanary_fan the Gary Doherty of our posters team? Being criticised at every opportunity for his views and now his grammar? I''m glad you know you are a pedantic tw*t your lordship [;)] Oh... and... derehamcanary_fan... I just thought I would point out that gareth Bale actually plays for Wales [:-*] [Y] [;)]  
  20. I am sure Grant wants to improve our central defence options whether it''s through bringing in a right sided centre back for cover or one thats better than what we already have to play. Trouble is there doesn''t seem to be many options available to him.  Apparently he tried to get Shawcross but didn''t like the conditions set by Man.U. To be fair he probably wouldn''t have come here anyway because for a youngster out on loan being based near his home is probably a big factor. I read a post on here at the weekend stating that only the club fail to see the need for a centreback. I don''t think thats true, I think that where the difference of opinion lies is in the ability of what we have now. I think maybe Grant sees Doherty/Dublin and Shackell/Murray as being far better players than a lot of posters on here. Have we missed out on players who are better than what we have now? Which ones should we have signed? The difference of opinion is probably just that the club don''t agree that just anybody is better. If Doherty and Shackell were available right now I wouldn''t mind betting our Championship rivals would show more than a little interest. We may feel they are not good enough for us but I bet some of our rivals would be interested. The grass is always greener on the other side until you actually go there to find out!    
  21. [quote user="1st Wizard"][quote user="nutty nigel"] I am glad Grant was preferred to you at the interviews [;)]   [/quote] But he wasn''t prefered to me Nutty, I turned the job down before he was appointed!.[;)][;)] [/quote] I''m with Smudger now BIGTIME.. SACK THE BOARD! [:@][:@]  
  22. I think retiring shirts is a ridiculous idea. So many greats over the years would have deserved the honour at least as much as Hucks. The goalkeepers shirt should have gone with Kevin Keelan, the centre half shirt with Barry Butler, there could porobably be a case made for all the shirts over the last 50 years. Recognising City Legends is surely what the Hall of Fame is for. Another thing to think about is the youngsters today whose dream it is to wear the No.6 shirt for Norwich because of Hucks. Just like years ago we dreamed of wearing the No.1 shirt because of Keelan. Maybe for one youngster, in years to come, that dream will come true.    
  23. Lobster Catcher - Where in my post did I write Murray off? I just said based on his performance at Rochdale. I try not to criticise players on here because we can all only dream of being as talented as those who wear the shirt we are so proud of. I was just making the point that I believe Doherty has done nothing to deserve being dropped for. Wiz - If you are going to drop a player during the 4 games this season for something he may have done/not done in previous seasons then I am glad Grant was preferred to you at the interviews [;)]  
  24. [quote user="1st Wizard"] Just an observation, nothing more sinister than that, but is Doherty now ''untouchable'' in terms of being dropped?. I''m hoping Murry will play at CH when he''s fully fit, do you?. This is the one area of the team which concerns me most, I back and support Peter Grant but I do wish this position was cleared up and made more secure, the Doc, although his heart is in the right place, his feet and head (and his arms!) aren''t always at times!. If Peter leaves it as it is, I fear for him long term, I really do. [/quote] The season is 4 games old Wiz and I can''t help wondering what Doherty has done to deserve to be dropped. So I ask you what games would you have dropped him for and who you would have replaced him with. Have you seen Murray? The Doc is a good honest proffesional who never hid last year when others did. He doesn''t deserve this and I hope he finds another club soon. But IF that leaves us with the Murray I saw at Rochdale then God help us!  
  25. [quote user="BlyBlyBabes"]  Kinda gone quiet on here since yesterday afternoon, eh? ''Fair dos''. Maclaren & Venables got it right on the day. Can they maintain it or was it a ''one off'' - that is the big question. Lampard was out through injury rather than choice - so maybe it was an accident, and they just got lucky. Let''s see what happens with this situation on Wednesday. I think that Richards, Barry, Wright-Phillips and Heskey have to start on Saturday. There''s nothing like rewarding performance to boost confidence. OTBC   OTBC [/quote] Many great England selections over the years have been forced through injury and not out of choice. Lots of managers have got lucky in that way. Jimmy Greaves and Roger Hunt was Ramsey''s first choice front two until an injury to Greaves forced the selection of Geoff Hurst for the quarter final against Argentina. Anyway, good post Bly and I agree that those players should be rewarded with a start on Wednesday but I am mystified how you can post about football and footballers when it''s about England and yet only the bored[|-)] when it''s about our Glorious Canaries [*-)] What about Englands bored [|-)] at the FA?
