  1. [quote user="Mr.Carrow"]I still think the best way to use Hucks is play him up front, let him drift wide left and give the midfield license to bomb into the box. Trouble is you need midfielders who are likely to score and we haven`t had that since Francis. Although to be fair i think Russell scored seven for Stoke last season.[/quote] This began to happen at times towards the end of last season. Hucks and Martin up front looked good for a while and Hucks pulled the defence all over the place leaving huge gaps for the midfield to run into. Etuhu was begining to get into those spaces and he was a goal scorer in the Francis mould. Russell can do most of the things Dickson could but unfortunately he is not the same presence in the penalty area. As much as I am tempted to agree that I would like to see Hux start up front tonight I really think Evans has done enough to start. I was so impressed with him when he came on at Blackpool and Stoke. But then again these games are coming thick and fast and we can''t expect DD to keep playing 90 without a rest so maybe Evans and Hux up top tonight?  
  2. [quote user="Fellas"]I''m glad nobody took my pick of Palermo against Catania. Palermo got tonked 3-1 and had a player sent off. Sometimes you just don''t see these things happening. [/quote] These things do happen Fellas, but don''t let it put you off. Keep coming back every week and keep picking [Y]  
  3. [quote user="1st Wizard"] Arthur, try re-reading my past posts properly mate, no where, absolutely nowhere, has my stance on the damn board changed okay? I still want them all out, especialy Smith & Jones!. [/quote] But what I don''t understand is how your, and loads of others, stance on the board hasn''t changed when the people on the board clearly have since you all took that stance:- I need to know, I need to see, Make it known, Let it be! Or maybe it was more like :- Romper bomper stomper boo Tell me, tell me, tell me do Magic mirror, tell me today Have all my friends had fun at play, I can see, Smudger and Cluck and Arthur and....... [8]I put a spell on you ............................. [:''(]  
  4. [quote user="we8wba"]indeed ardee, i suppose in away you are make the selections on who to pick for the week, if you pick some muppet who been on here for 1day and doesnt know the offside rule then bad pick, but picking yankee maybe you are the good picker to[/quote] I can understand Arrdees point about posters picks because I have felt it too when I did selections. And I remember making poor choices because I couldn''t bring myself to take other posters advice and include piswich in the final selections. I reckon Yankee did particularly well because he concentrated on the teams and not the personalities. You have probably also noticed that I generally pick from the Championship because these are the teams I see week in week out. 3xBlah and I both made a good case for Sheffield Wednesday to beat Colchester and look what happened! But that''s the sort of result that happens week in and week out in this league. Yankees picks, although much shorter prices, didn''t have that same risk factor. I think it''s worth bearing in mind that we don''t have to look for value as we are being given the stake money by Dixmaar Racing. So these ''short priced good things'' across the whole of Europe make more appeal. Liverpool, Chelsea, Man.Utd and Arsenal all won again last weekend. Next weekend Chelsea, Man. Utd., Celtic, Bayern Munich, Barca and Inter Milan all have very winnable home games at what will surely be short odds. But having said that I will probably still select from the Championship next week because it''s what I know! I think it''s gr8, we8, m8[Y] to see so many people taking an interest in the ''Free Bet Fred'' and I am as proud as Arrdee [*]  
  5. Just goes to show how our supporters turn up in numbers that put other clubs to shame. Stoke had modest ticket prices on Saturday and got nowhere near selling out! Whatever the weather, we follow our team............................... [Z][*]  
  6. [quote user="we8wbacl"] if this is correct there are many teams in this league who has won the old league one, fa cup and league cup more so now your turn to sell me a reason, remember i will give reasons for the whole of the championships teams [/quote] hmmmmmm [^o)] History lessons don''t mean anything my friend. Remember that Wolves 3xchampions in the dark distant past just like Huddersfield. Chelsea also have only been 3xchampions. Big clubs are not about whose got the longest memory [;)] This continual "little Norwich" rant stems from a quote by Delia when we were in the Premiership and not a quote from where we are now. Roeder may have made the same quote in the same circumstances just as Delia wouldn''t have made that quote at the bottom of the championship. What sums it up for me is a similar thread on here last season stating that Madejski and Coppell didn''t see Reading as a small club as they were taking the Prem by storm. But then a couple of weeks later Coppell came out with his own "Little Reading speech" Roeder might have done the same in the same position. It''s all about the here and now but looks so different when taken out of context later.  
  7. It''s great to see this pinned to the top of the board. The ''Free Bet Fred'' is getting really popular now and I know Arrdee is well chuffed!![Y] I''m sure we are the only internet messageboard fans raising money for their clubs academy and we should all be proud of that... shouldn''t we Pink Un Pickers[:^)] ..... Not ''arf [Y][Y]  
  8. Greetings Pink Un Pickers..... alright [Y] 11 points out of 15 this month has seen Sheffield Wednesday move up to No. 14 in the current chart. Meanwhile no wins in November has seen Colchester fall to No. 20. Sheffield Wednesday V Colchester    Home win. Is this gonna be the third win for the  ''Pink Un Pickers'' And for the BBC our Battling Beloved Canaries..... Not ''arf [Y] Good luck 7REW [Y] That''s right.... hold tight... stay bright [H]      
  9. I''m pretty sure you can still see the press conferences from the Worthy sacking and the Grant appointment online. If you can you will see that they were well supported and comprehensive occasions with the majority shareholders prepared to answer anything thrown at them. The sacking of Grant and the appointment of Roeder appear to have been handled differently. I am just guessing as to why but I do know for a fact that the press conference for Roeders appointment was not hastily arranged.  
  10. [quote user="gazzathegreat"][quote user="Barry Brockes"]Still remains a mystery to me as to why only Mumbo Jumbo rolled out Roeder as the new manager at the press conference.[/quote] I know, I can''t figure that one out either, to my mind it was ungracious and rude towards a new manager. I am not saying he warranted the red carpet, but only Munby? PR at it''s worst from a club spun up in it they can''t see the wood for the trees.[/quote]   Of course it''s always possible that this change from the usual way of doing things was instigated by the new investors on the board.

  12. [quote user="Mr.Carrow"] Yes you`re spot on, but judging from the events of the last few years the board struggle to understand that simple footballing logic. They are happy to speculate on land etc. off the pitch but absolutely paranoid about speculating on it. Of course an under-invested squad often leads to poor performance, protests, boycotts, dwindling crowds etc. which all threaten the viable future of the club. We`ll see in January if they really have learned their lesson....... [/quote] A month ago I posted a few times about the board not being the same board that have been responsible for the events of the last few years. New investment was sought and found in the Turners. Different people are making the decisions now so it''s possible that the decisions will be different. As I have said so many times - you don''t have to take over to instigate change, you merely have to take part.  
  13. Roeder could be the guy who re-unites the whole club in the same way as Worthy did before it all went so wrong. It''s early days but Saturday was a good sign of things to come and it wasn''t just the result. If we can scrap our way off the bottom by January, a couple of ambitious signings in the transfer window could well make for a very interesting and enjoyable second half of the season. This message board is a much quieter and happier place this morning!  
  14. Mine was six quid! Maybe not quite a weeks wages, but all the wife lets me keep out of it!  
  15. Greetings Pink Un Pickers..... alright [Y] Two winning weeks for "Yankee" mean he truely is the pick of the ''pops'' [<:o)][*][*] Not ''arf [H] I''m so proud of this "Free Bet Fred" and I know you are too Arrdee [*][Y] The rota is a good idea too Gorleston "Gentleman" Jim [*][Y] This thread is getting a lots of hits just lately, it''s great to see so many posters supporting the free bet every week.. all the naps help for the final selection. Arrdee is THE MAN [Z][*][*][*] That''s right.... hold tight... stay bright [Y][H][B][B]

  17. Wiz - I hope you remember to get enough on to cover the losses you and Snakepit took over the Bet365 Jim Duffy fiasco.......  I''m surprised the pair of you are prepared to dip your toes back in the water so soon after getting your fingers burned [;)] So to speak [*-)][8-)]  
  18. [quote user="Mello Yello"]   After having my original reply ''moderated''......No, I''m not Richard Borls. Are you the Chief Exec?......or the NCFC head of club meejah? I''m actually the "Norwich Puppetman''s" official choreographer and voice coach.....allegedly. [/quote] Sadly I''m not any of those people. I''m not really Delia''s cousin either.. The Norwich Puppetman[Z] is probably more famous than the Chief Exec[8-|].. and definitely more popular although I don''t think he gets so many emails[co] Shame your original reply got ''moderated'' I would quite probably enjoyed reading it.. I honestly thought you were one of the ''mods'' on here though.  
  19. [quote user="Snakepit boys"]Come on Nutty Nigel I am sure you have an opinion! [/quote] I think it''s a done deal Snakepit... it''s Duffy! [;)]  
  20. [quote user="Mello Yello"] [quote user="blahblahblah"][quote]And do you donate/contribute, to the ''Rick Waghorn Appreciation Society?''[/quote] I do my bit Mello, a link here and there to myfootballwriter.com, a quiet prayer late at night for Sven at Man City when I think no-one else is looking...  Seems to be paying off, did I hear that we''ve signed Keith Chedwynne on loan from Man City ?  He''s sprightly for a 50 year old, don''t know what he''ll be like up front though. [/quote] I think you are Wack Ringworm! You Are! You Are! You Are! Oh, Yes You ARE!!!!......I think......sometimes. [/quote] Oi Mello I was him.. or at least I was before I was Delia''s cousin... but then being both is a possibility.. ever thought of that [;)] Are you Richard Bawls [:''(] [:)]  
  21. Glad you had a good time Mr Carrow[Y] We don''t really know what we got yet do we? We didn''t get some of the big names bandied about on here, but then nobody else did, otherwise we could point to having missed out on them. So it''s possible we got the best available or it''s possible we got duds. You are not alone in wanting a change of direction from the board and you are not alone in your passion for our team. Why do you assume that those of us who travel the country supporting our team are only spectators now, that''s insulting and if I reversed it and said that those staying away were merely glory hunters you would be the first to complain. I''m sure you are doing what you feel is right but then I''m sure I am too. So maybe we should just agree that you are a passionate good time glory boy with the interests of the club at heart and in years to come fans like me will thankyou for your sacrifice of staying away and keeping your money in your pocket. Whereas I am a passionate spectator who travels the country supporting the team and spending my money, like you, on what I choose, and in years to come fans like you will thank me for continually spectating through all the disappointment. Nice to chat again Mr Carrow [8-|][*] Always a pleasure sir, never a chore[Y]  
  22. Blah - This is where I so wish they would find some middle ground. It seems to me that the board have concentrated so much on the long term future of the club that they are in danger of destroying it. Given the situation at the club in the 90''s it''s maybe understandable that they have tried to build a secure future that''s not over reliant on TV revenues. But the TV revenues are the "here and now" and we have to compete in the "here and now". Relegation would be a disaster for our long term future as I believe the club is budgeted on a worst case scenario of a mid-table finish and being knocked out of both cups at the first stage. I am hoping that the reality of our situation right now will mean the board find that middle ground and if they do that it''s not too late. But there''s not much we can do except wait and see.  
  23. [quote user="Arthur Whittle"] Ok NN we''ll forget about all the other smug comments between you and the wonderful Ardee towards me, [ the silly little poems etc etc]. Try seeing things from a paying customer towards a once great football club who is really peed off about the crap we watch week in and week out and you might just realise why i find such comments somewhat unjustified. I sometimes question if people come on here for the right reasons. Difference of opinion is fine but pompous smug comments......? [/quote] Ok Arthur, I take it you mean this thread http://new.pinkun.com/cs/forums/1067487/ShowPost.aspx and I apologise if there is something there that caused you offence although to be honest mate I don''t see what. Do you assume that I don''t get peed off at times too? I am a paying customer too and I have been for 40 years. You and I probably have more in common than we realise. It''s quite possible that we have met at some point over those 40 years. On your ''EEN Column'' thread you suggested people should lighten up a bit.. well maybe you should take your own advice because at the end of the day nobody is totally right and nobody is totally wrong and we are all united in our support for The Canaries. I too wonder if people come on here for the right reasons. It''s not just a protest board for likeminded Mr Angry [:@]types to have a love in[U] but it''s also a place for City Fans[Y] to discuss all manner of things concerning the club we all love.  
  24. [quote user="Arthur Whittle"] I''m sorry NN i must say you don''t actually call me names, you are one of those posters that would rather make snide insults towards me without actually name calling. All a little silly of course. I may not be the most intelligent poster on here and i might have a drink [although very occasionally these days] but i still think I''m one of the only people on here who saw the trouble coming with this board so i think I''m pretty sharp when it comes to knowing my football, unlike most on here who when proven wrong will revert to silly insults. [/quote] Arthur Stop playing all hard done by, I''m didn''t intend them to be snide insults, I reacted to you coming on here bringing my name onto a thread that I hadn''t even posted on. It appeared a drunken rant to my eyes hence my post. Intelligent posters? How do you measure that?? Is it like loyal fans??? If so then I''d like it to be known that I''m holding back my intelligence, like some sort of boycott, but you''ll all thank me for it oneday! [:P]
