    Play off donkeys!!

    Most of the posters who set so much store by what is said on Radio Norfolk and Canary Call don''t go to games Dicky. They watch it on the wireless and then listen to Canary Call and then come and rant on here. For them Canary Call is a big part of their afternoons entertainment. Check out what is posted on this messageboard during games and you will see for yourself.

    For people who go to games Canary Call is just a little distraction on the periphery of the afternoons entertainment as they catch a few rants on their way home in the car. Calls like "I didn''t go to the game this afternoon but our tactics are too negative like the time Worthy brought on Sutch in the playoff final" To me Canary Call is just a radio version of that great film "One Flew Over The Cuckoo''s Nest"

    Delia on Radio Norfolk

    It was a fun day out for sure and I was proud of the team, proud of the fans and proud of Delia.

    Having just got home and started reading the comments on here it obviously wasn''t so much fun "watching on the wireless"

    Yes bloody Hooze did play and Etuhu was in first choice before Fotheringham. But it wasn''t a great day despite that, in fact those two performances helped make it a great day.

    Maybe some of those posting on here this afternoon were bitter because they had missed out on tickets, if so theres plenty still available for Tuesday night at Preston.

    Somedays it really doesn''t matter about what is said on Canary Call and Radio Norfolk, somedays the football on the pitch, the atmosphere and the occasion overshadow everything else.

    Today was one of those days.

    Come on!!!! Lets be havin'em!!!

    [quote user="koimatsuba"]

    we didn''t diserve 4-0.

    lets get some wins in the league now!

     

    cheers all

    [/quote]

    I was proud of our whole club today, first time for a long time I can say that. The guy I was most pleased for was Hoooooooze!!! He didn''t look out of place on that field today, nobody would have thought he was capable of that a year ago.

    I don''t even think we missed the chances, Chelsea just defended well and have such quality at the back compared to Championship defending.

    No we didn''t deserve 4-0. 2-1 would proabaly have been about right and this team put up a beter show than our previous two efforts at Stamford Bridge.

    But over a season it''s probably true to say you end up where you deserve to be so lets hope we can build on this and end up at least top half.

    Worthy to Swansea?

    [quote user="jas the barclay king"]

    Like he was with coventry and Leicester?

     The supposed "best young manager in the Country" has been out of work since October and no one has snapped him up... Goes to prove how crap a manager he really is.. the board got it horribly wrong with him didnt they? i still stick by what i said at the NCISA meeting at St Annies hall.. He wasnt a good manager he was a lucky manager... and his luck Ran out..

     He got Huckerby out of luck (there were other clubs interested remember) and in a poor division (which has improved considerably) Hucks took us up.. we soon found out how out of his depth Worthy was.. Plan A.. and if that doesn''t work we stick with Plan A until it does! unlike Grant

    I was going to comment on this but I wanna make sure Sheded is alive and well first .............

    Roy Blower's new duties

    [quote user="cityangel"]

    [quote user="my other team is england"] A few weeks ago City Angel had a dig at Roy Blower.Now she says that she is entitled to her opinion that Roy is not the right guy to lead the NCISA.
    [/quote]

     

    I can find only one post in the past month where I''ve mentioned him and that was in reply to Nigel''s post where he mentions him and I said '''' Dont get me started on him''''

    Yes its no secret that I dont think he''s the right dynamic person to lead the NCISA and thats why in my opinion they have only a few hundred members, thats my opinion to which I''m entitled.

    Nowhere do I say he doesn''t do a good job for the community isnt a good school governor and nowhere do I say he won''t be a good Lord Mayor.

    But I do feel I have the right to comment on the various statements he makes about our club.

     

    [/quote]

    If I remember rightly motie had a pop at you on that thread too CA! Maybe you have a stalker??

    For the record I think Roy Blower will make an excellent Lord mayor and that he richly deserves that honour.

    Why I think we will be relegated.

    [quote user="Mello Yello"]

    I remember our 1st relegation from the Prem..........and where we were at Christmas that season...........The rest is history.

    [/quote]

    I remember it too Mello. I think the difference is that this season the board and the manager have been busy trying to stop the rot where as in that season nothing was done to stop the slide.

    shhhhhhhhhh.. don''t tell anyone cuz it won''t go down well! [;)]

     

  8. nutty nigel

    Why I think we will be relegated.

    SOB - I am a reasonable poster, even though some unreasonable posters don''t think I am [;)] Being reasonable can''t possibly be a weakness.

    I also acknowledge your point of view, I see where you are coming from but I don''t share your pessimism. I will be absolutely clear too. I think we are about to hit a run of good form, and during a run of good form when confidence is high games can''t come fast enough. Our run in is hard but so is everybody elses. Yes we do have to play the top three but these are all home games.

    I know I''m nutty but I hope in a reasonable way. I have no wish to fall out with a tough guy who has horns on his bonnett! I''ll just stick to upsetting those scrawny chickens!!! [:D][8-|]

    Etuhu to keep place!?!?

    [quote user="jas the barclay king"]

    watch him have the game of his life now! its sods law isnt it? he will be Maradona like tommorow and beat chelski on his own...

    before being his usual crap self for Preston on Tuesday

    If he plays I hope he does have the game of his life jas.

    I hope they all do.

    Don''t you??

    Come on!!!! Lets be havin'em!!!

    Terrific post Koimatsuba!!

    And a breath of fresh air on a message board full of the usual gripes and groans even though we are playing at Chelsea tomorrow in the 5th round of the FA Cup.

    Dare to dream!

     

  11. It was us Blackpool or Bristol City who were going to have that "honour". So it''s interesting that although the FA''s stated objective is to use the FA Cup to redistribute funds throughout the game neither of us was selected for a live game. There are 10 premiership clubs and 6 championship clubs playing this weekend but of the 8 teams to share the £2,120,000 Live Broadcast Fund only 1 (Preston) is from outside the Premier League.

     

  12. People will always read what they want to in anything the club say. But slowly the tide of opinion against the club is changing. Soon going to matches at Carrow Road will be fun again. Hopefully Grant will continue to turn things around and bring success back to our club. Then watch as posters hail the board for having the foresight to appoint him as manager in the first place!

    You never know, but if the good times return some poster may get so carried away that they suggest having a statue erected in Doncasters honour!!! [:O] [;)] [:-*] [B] [I] [li]

    Chelsea Predicitions / Betting

    You can get 16/1 for us to beat Chelsea. The same price as we are to be relegated!

    Both just as likely/unlikely...............

    or are they.............................................

    Can Dublin Be A City Legend?............

    Of course he can be a legend wiz.

    He may have only been here a short time but in that time he had to win over plenty of fans who were willing him to fail so that he could be used as a stick to beat Worthington and the board.

    Dublin and Peter Grant both had this disadvantage when they came here, Dublin has won over the fans with his performances on the pitch and we are starting to see Grant win them over with his honesty and passion off the pitch. I hope they both become legends.

    Dublin won''t start every game for us this season, let alone next. I hope fans don''t take out their disappointment on players who may take his place in the team whether it be Brown, Shackell or Doherty.

     

  15. Just thought I''d ask???? [li] [st] [um]

    Sheded?? you still around???

    Ryan J joins Mulryne...

    [quote user="blahblahblah"][quote]

    so depleting the squad even more.

    we wont have any players left at this rate![/quote]

    players in all likelihood we won''t use if they stay here.  If we need him, we can recall him.
    [/quote]

    No blah.. that''s it for me!!!

    No Ryan Jarvis = No future I''m afraid.

    I have been confident that we were going to make the play-offs and get to the Cup Final. Now we will surely get embarrassed on Saturday and relegation beckons!

    Help!

    [quote user="Rustyboy"]Thought it was ''Down, Down'' by Status Quo![/quote]

    They dub that for those "watching on the wireless" Rustyboy!

    Us at the game hear "the only way is up" [:D]

    Why I think we will be relegated.

    SOB - I know I''ve lost my marbles but you must be a couple of waves short of a shipwreck to suggest "there''s no reason for us not to be comfortably safe" and then starting a thread stating why you think we will be relegated!! [:)] [:D] [;)] [B] [Y]

    Underestimating Dickson.

    [quote user="Citizen Journalist Foghorn"][quote user="nutty nigel"][quote user="BlyBlyBabes"]

    Now, we know that City fans - at least those on this board - rate Huckerby, Earnshaw and Shackell (to some extent) highly.

    But Dickson Etuhu is widely and roundly criticised and slagged off.

    I submit that Worthington, Grant and the PA Sports Actim Index are probably right, and those many of you who slag off Dickson are wrong. Now, if this is the case, it begs the question - Why?

    Anybody like to attempt a reasoned answer?

    [/quote]

    I can offer you a reason why BBB but I fully expect to be slagged off for saying it.

    Worthington, Grant and the PA Sports Actim Index understand the game and are doing a job where as us fans pay our money to be entertained. Us fans have preconceived ideas of what we want from players and don''t always see it the way it really is. And we don''t always understand the game or the jobs players are expected to do.

    Does anybody seriously believe that if Dickson was as lazy as fans make out he would still be selected week in week out. He may have his faults but being lazy isn''t one of them.

    If you want further evidence of this just check out ZLF''s scapegoat thread. Many fans believe that The Doc gives away freekicks that cost us goals and yet the facts dispute this. If you check it out you will see that this season we have only conceded one goal from a freekick conceded by The Doc and that was by all accounts a refereeing error. I bet Worthington, Grant and the PA Sports Actim Index know the truth though.

    Anyway, as in the case of Carl Robinson, the manager will select the strongest side he has available. He will bring in new players to improve the side and when he does some players who were automatic selections will be moved on.

    Do you want evidence there are some rubbish players in the side Nutty - look at the league table this year and last. Etuhu is still a weak link.  He is rubbish, we see it, preston fans saw it....  Is he lazy - probably not, is he slow - perhaps.  Can he read a game of football - I think my mum has a better chance than this guy.  The quicker this joker is out of the side the sooner we will start climbing the league. There is talk of Dead wood -well Etuhu is some we may get some mullah for...

    Pre season against Cambridge summed him up - he was out of his depth.

    Notice how well we have done since dead wood Carl ''big pile of ****'' Robinson has left the club!

     

    Worthington thought Andy Hughes would make a good central midfielder and that he and Jarrett composed a ''Wealth of midfielders''....  So don''t use his flawed judgement of the last 2/3 seasons matey.

    Eboohoo is rubbish and we will not miss him from teh team teh moment he is finally dropped - just as we arent missing Hooze and Bobinson now.

    Chelsea Predicitions / Betting

    I dare to dream!

    2-1 to Norwich!

    Hux will put us one up with the Chelsea defence appealing for offside. Shevchenko will equalise with a wonder goal. Marshall will keep us in the game with a series of brilliant saves including a penalty.Chelsea will hit both posts and the bar and the referee will disallow what looks like a good goal for offside. Then on a rare breakaway Czech will fumble John Terrys back pass when his swim hat slips over his eyes and Chris Martin will be first to the ball to score the winner!

    Why I think we will be relegated.

    This thread has been running a while now and most people still seem very fearful of relegation. Am I alone in believing we will be comfortably safe way before the end of the season??

    The right to dream

    Where do you get your material Shaun????? [;)]

    Anyway, it''s only me and Kathy who dare to dream. The rest of ''em are all realists who expect us to be stuffed and probably can''t wait to get on here on Saturday night to slag off everyone from Delia to the tea lady. Predictable and boring though it is!
