    Playing in the EPL = more competitive team = more chance of winning a trophy. 
    I’m not greedy, I’m 32 years old and I’d just like to see my club in a cup final one day. Doesn’t have to be the Champions League, even the League Cup would be nice!

    And we don’t seem to challenge for anything outside the EPL so inside can only be an improvement.

    Just 12 games ago we lifted the championship trophy. Already you seem to want to be someone else. I find it incredible that you lose faith already. I guess that's what Webber calls "the noise". Four years before that we lifted a trophy at Wembley. Which of the clubs you want to be like have won a trophy bigger than those two?

    I get you want more. I'd love us to win everything. But I also appreciate and can see that we do better than most comparable clubs.


  2. No sorrys Dan, thanks again for a great weekend👍

    Better week for us this week. 23/32 PUPs had winning picks (72%). 20/28 winning selections (71%). Dan turned that into 11/12 (92%). Impressive stuff!

    Kathy marches on for the fourteenth week unbeaten. Parma remains one away on 13/14.

    Most profitable pick was Crabby's Forest at 1.12.

    Lapps extended his lead in the profitability league with Montrose at .94.

    Your standards are pretty low if you consider bouncing between leagues as “amazing”

    My standards may seem that way to you but those years have been pretty amazing to me. Ricardo probably has another 10 years on me so I'd be interested in what he's made of it...

    How are your standards? What governs your personal ambition and how do you measure up?

    Fundamentally though what the recent financial figures have shown is that we have owners who cannot afford to own a sustainable premier league club or indeed championship club without parachute payments and who are undoubtedly holding us back through their stance of not even considering new ownership. 

    I struggle with this Jimbo. Last year you said this and you also said Marcus Evans was keeping the binners afloat. That doesn't bear scrutiny now does it?

    So your answer is what it always is. They will be holding us back in the future. So, is that last year's future or this year's?

    Oh, and the binners sunk🙃

    Selling your best players and taking a gamble on Unknown’s wasn’t ambitious, it was lucky! 

    It's amazing what luck can bring isn't it? In the history of our club the last ten years will look amazing beside the vast majority of ten year periods.

    Even in the last 4 years we've seen our club lift a trophy at Wembley and the coveted Championship trophy. I bet most other generations wish we had been so lucky in their time.

    At least no one at the club, owners, directors, management or team have thrown the towel in.

    .....Yeah but apart from we the support, no one at the club, owners, directors, management or team - are currently throwing any of their money in......

    Too many posters on here have not got the stomach for set backs......

    .....although those too many posters on here, still have the stomach to back the club with their personal cash and disposable income.....

    The word under scrutiny is ambition not competitors and obviously a complete waste of time asking to define the ambition with regard to Norwich City.

    Last season's bleat about the lack of ambition was all about that list of clubs. And how we didn't have the ambition to challenge in the championship with most of those clubs and we'd end up in league one with the rest.

    You can read it all here..

    How did they manage to confound your expectations and why don't you trust the club to do what's right now?

    This is what you said and i will ask again what ambition has Norwich City shown to be in the PL in comparison to their competitors. Not interested in the list you trotted out with regard to other clubs because that is a distraction to what i asked so just stick to the post highlighted. Measure ambition for me with regard to what the club have actually done. All i see is firefighting not ambition.

    Nope, they are our competitors, they are some of the clubs who expect to share time in the PL with us.

     


  9. I can't help it if people can't see the ambition our club has. You'd only have to visit Carrow Road or Colney to see it.

    Hankering after someone else's money may be a lot of things but it's not ambition. And what is more the majority of clubs who follow that fake star achieve far less than us.

    I take it you mean ' than the majority ' but how on earth can you back that up ?

    How many of..

    Leeds

    Forest

    Sheff Wed

    Bristol C

    QPR

    Charlton

    Hull

    Birmingham

    We are there again this season, just months after you said we had no ambition to get there. How did that even happen? Is ambition only measured by someone elses wealth?
