    If it was happening anytime soon I doubt we would have sold all those season tickets since December.

    I notice you didn't quote me so I'll ask again ....please Mr Carrow could you point me to the posters living in this myopic bubble? I'd also prefer you didn't misrepresent me as I have said on here that I am in favour of stadium expansion. Putting posters in little boxes to suit your debating style is as unhelpful as it ever was. The discussion, and good discussion in the main, has been about the different views of how and when it could be done. My comment about having the empty seats for in case people want them is no different from your assertion there are thousands waiting for it to happen. The truth is we don't know.

    So we should keep banks of empty seats just in case then. And I won't apologise for pointing out the myopic bubble you live in with regards to "many posters on here". Maybe you could point to these "many posters" you were referring to?

    Then you will also realise that it's not practical for our club to keep banks of seats empty just in case these people occasionally want to come. If you follow our club home or away you will realise that many of our supporters are from wider Norfolk and beyond. Those that use club travel have to get to and from Norwich at all times of the day or night. Theirs is a tremendous effort. I would say most of the posters on here are not from Norwich. In fact many of them not from Norfolk and in quite a few cases not from England. The myopic bubble is yours Mr Carrow.

    Great pledge Wacky. Even more reason to really hope it happens.

    I think you have been a supporter for long enough to know that's not how it works. I can't see anything except benefit for season ticket holders if the stadium capacity is increased. The only potential losers are our football club and supporters who only want to go in the PL.

    Totally wrong. As one of these long term season ticket holders I can only see benefit in increased capacity. I pay £570 for my ticket. If you do the sums you will see it works out at £30 per game. That's exactly what casual tickets will cost next season. So to my reckoning with more casual tickets available the price will come down and we will pay less. To be fair we should probably be paying less this season but most of us are happy and feel we get vfm.8 There seems to be an underlying theme in here that season ticket holders are selfish. Probably stemming from jealousy because season tickets were available until after Christmas. Not tickets with restricted view or odd seats. Proper "selfish season ticket holders" seats. An investment last season would have reaped benefits this time. And you always have the option if sharing which is what my children and grandchildren do.
  9. Here's a treat. First game in top division and first goal...
  10. Was hoping the smiley would give away the friendly context. No offence meant. The respect is mutual buddy.

    I don't think we all agree that Barbe. There seems to be an argument on here to grab the bull by the horns because the time is now.

    I am sure at the AGM they said that a new build was the only viable option. But as you say, the facilities are out of date and I think it would be crazy to have a new stand incorporating them. Let's be honest it wasn't state of the art when it was first built amid controversy 35 years ago.

    Wacky, I just don't agree that what Bowkett said back then is of little relevance. How can it be of little relevance compared to some of the suggestions on here? At least his comments came on the back of seriously investigating the various possibilities and costs. He told us at an AGM that putting a top tier on the present stand wasn't an option. He said if it was done it would entail a new build. Have these various schemed where by we build on top of the present stand been investigated and costed? I'm not arguing for not increasing the capacity just that it comes with financial risks and logistical problems. Whether the new board view things differently is an unknown. If the question is asked at the AGM we may find out. But the signs aren't good as they sold the newly available season tickets as fast as they could.

    I'm a mere whippersnapper compared to Ricardo and VOS went to school with my grandad...
  15. I think many peoples first game was a cup match back then. A lot of people my age started at that game. And I guess a few years before many started at the Leicester game. Before that probably the 59 cup run. Nowadays kids probably start with cup games but for different reasons. I'm sure many first gamers were at the Chelsea game a couple of years ago. And probably even the Portsmouth game last season. Keelan wasn't all that when he first came into the side. By the late 60s he was awesome and stayed that way right through the 70s. He's definitely the best of all time for me.

    If we can get a stand for £30m then spend it on that. £30m in. £30m out. New stand. Job's s good un
  17. Rickyyyyy... If we get a few of us together and call ourselves The Riverend Objects we could to be a supporters group and be entitled to priority tickets if we'd had ten games on that old terrace...
  18. That was a typical Martin Peters goal. I still wonder how on earth we signed him but still well pleased we did

    To be honest I seriously believe you're on the wind.

    You've said this before but it has no relevance.

    Indy, I seriously want to know if you can see the difference between something owned by an individual and something owned by a football club of which some shareholders own more than others.
