  1. I imagine Carl Moore would fund his wages, but there''s the small matter of a transfer fee.
  2. I''ve just looked at the match stats: Goal Attempts 13  :  13 Goal Attempts On Target 8  :  5 On Target Crosses 16  :  16 Crosses Corners 2  :  4 Corners Offside 5  :  3 Offside Fouls 13  :  16 Fouls Free kicks 21  :  17 Free kicks  Yellow cards 1  :  2 Yellow cards   Red cards -  :  1 Red cards  % Possession 53  :  47 Possession % It doesn''t look that different from most of our games. Have we just found the goal at last?[<:o)]
  3. Just got back home from London - turned on the Canaries World commentary as the ref blew for full-time. Was reading the text commentary on the web on the train and the other passengers must have thought I was mental!
  4. [quote user="Smudger"] Some would suggest that Mr Roeder is more clueless than Mr Grant... [8-)] [/quote]Only people who were clueless themselves Smudge! [;)]I was panicing there for a second - sounded like they might get a red card. We''d be sunk then!
  5. Yes, Roeder only has one tactical substitution available now, and who wants to bet it will be Bell for Crofty? I''d love to see Bell for Patty though and how we play with two attacking wingers.
  6. Doc''s on. the question is, is Roeder going to play him upfront as our new target man? [:)][:D][;)]
  7. [quote user="WeAreYellows49"]Rusty up front lmfao, oh how quickly I am losing faith in GR.[/quote]Maybe not your first choice up front but at least we have seen he can score.
  8. This is thread is literally laugh out loud funny! It just demonstrates the gap between fantasy and reality for some of the posters on here.Can I just point out the Peter Grant was one of the highest rated coaches in the country before he came to us. At the time it looked like a gamble that could have paid off, and most people were prepared to see if it worked out. Do we really want to gamble again so soon?
  9. [quote user="Potless Percy "][quote user="Roedy Cant Fail"] I was involved in a project assesment in 2007 they wanted £11.2m for the land with pp for 240 flats. Our Company didn''t buy feeling it was overvalued in excess of £1m. [/quote] So are you saying that they could have sold the land in 2007 for around £10m?  OK no one expected a financial crash on the present scale, but it was stunningly obvious two years ago to anyone who was not completely blind that there was a glut of apartments in Norwich, and you don''t need a GCSE in economics to know that boom is inevitably followed by bust.  A report today put Norwich in the top 8 cities in the country for falling prices in buy to let developments.  One can only hope that the majority shareholders have learned from this and won''t try to hold out for a similarly overvalued buy-out of the club.   [/quote] This is brilliant! We have a supporter who can see the future! Just win the lottery for the next few weeks and then we won''t need Cullum!  "it was stunningly obvious two years ago to anyone who was not completely blind" - strangely it doesn''t appear to have been stunningly obvious to millions of people who are now hurting badly, including 99% of financial "experts".
  10. [quote user="Mello Yello"][quote user="Nuff Said"]I thought it was now generally accepted that that Delia was lining up the Turners to take over from her. In which case why would they want a rival for ownership of the club involved? No idea why they did walk in the end though, but looking at the current state of the financial markets surely the most likely but boring reason is that they saw the turmoil ahead and realised they had to focus on their business or risk losing most of their wealth. The problem with this theory is that there''s nothing in it for the conspiracy theorists to use to have a go at the board.[/quote] And your opinion isn''t a conspiracy theory then? In defending the board.... [/quote]I suppose you could argue that appointing the Turners with the unstated vision of them getting their feet under the table, then taking over was a conspiracy, but I don''t see that anything I''ve said above defends the board. Would you like me to?
  11. And as Cam has said we can''t recall either Martin or Spillane under the terms of season long loans. Nor should we IMHO. They need a season of regular games befoer we can make a decision about whether they''re good enough for us.
  12. [quote user="Shack Attack"]Good post Cambridge [Y]My opinion with regards to whether certain players care more than others will not be a particularly popular one but here goes. I believe that when fans claim that certain players ''don''t care'' or ''didn''t want it enough'' they''re simply using those phrases to cover up the fact that they can''t explain a certain players performance or a result as a whole. They want to appear knowledgeable but by trotting out the usual explanations about a ''lack of passion'' they''re actually showing how little they understand. If a player was genuinely not trying their hardest it would be obvious to the management team and they would be off before the half hour mark. We like to take the simplistic view that football is just a game of two halves and that the most skillful and commited team will win, but it''s so much more complicated that that. The result depends on thousands and thousands of decisions and incidents many of which owe a great deal to luck. How many times do we see a perfect goal - no mistake from a defender, bobble on uneven turf, deflection or error from an official?These decisions and incidents not only depend on luck, and a competent set of officials, but also on the plans laid out by the coaching staff during the weeks training. We have no knowledge whatsoever regarding these plans which makes it very difficult to analyse the decisions that the players are making. If a midfielder lets an opponent run on to be dealt with the defence is he being lazy because he doesn''t care or is he keeping his teams shape ready for a counter attack? The truth is we have absolutely no idea.I''m not saying that we should avoid criticising a player unless we get a full report on the weeks training, that''s just ridiculous, but we should try and avoid these black and white arguments. How often have you seen a player described as merely competent on here? I know it''s difficult to look at something dispassionately when you care so much but sometimes people need to take a step back and look at things logically. We were promotion candidates after playing Birmingham off the park and now we''ve lost to Southampton and Derby we''re relegation certanties. Are either of those statements true or does the truth lie somewhere in between?Nobody likes to look in that grey area in between though do they, that''s the area for fence sitters and nobody wants to be one of them. In this age of internet forums, interactive TV and radio phone ins everybody has to have an opinion.....on absolutely everything......regardless of whether they know what they''re talking about. Society shuns the grey area because within it lurks difficult questions about ourselves and our actions and we in turn seek the simplicity of a black and white argument. And those black and white arguments encourage people to suscribe to one of two extreme opinions. I guess it''s should be no surprise that it happens here when we''re conditioned to think like that every day but we really should try and do better.[/quote]Shack, this is one of, if not the best post I''ve read in a very long time. People slip into a "yes it is, no it isn''t" argument far too easily and are reluctant to have the honesty to concede that football like everything else is a combination or art, luck and science - if it was that easy to manufacture success the league table would be simply a list of the richest to the poorest club. A very coherent reasoning why reading and contributing to this board is a waste of time, but it''s like a scab I can''t resist picking at!
  13. Interesting how many teams include Fozzy. Not!Most people seem to want Glenn to abandon his "only one attacking midfielder/winger" rule and play Bell and Croft or Hoolahan and Croft or similar. Since our defence has been excellent, apart from the obligatory rush of blood to the head from someone once a game, I think it''s worth being a little more adventurous and risk it. As long as we score more than the opposition, it''s not a problem!
  14. I thought it was now generally accepted that that Delia was lining up the Turners to take over from her. In which case why would they want a rival for ownership of the club involved?

  15. Personally, I''d pick Chadwick over them all - and it looks like MK Dons might agree (before anyone starts, yes I know it''s league 1). I like Croft, Bell has potential and Hoolahan has to come good at some point. Croft works well as an impact sub.
  16. [quote user="Smudger"][quote user="cityangel"] Turners and Delia didn''t agree on the way forward plus the Turners would have liked Cullum to be involved???   Just my theory! [/quote] My theroy too CA... and from what I have heard on the grapevine it is far more than just a theory... [;)] [/quote]Aaahh..the grapevine! Along with its best mates rumour, baseless speculation and idle gossip, where would this board be without it? I believe Good News Gordon was looking after it but may be you''ve taken it over Smudge?
  17. [quote user="Lenny-boy"]wow SnaP you are nearly as negative as me! virtually no money has been spent since Roeder has arrived, the reason is because the club is skint. norwich are paid to have those loanees in the team, make no mistake, thats why they pop up in out of positions to get our wages. You could go through all our players listing more deficiencies than positives. i.e Jon Otsemobor, you buy league one, you get league one New investment is being sort out. Until that time comes, shut your eyes and buckle up for another roedeo-rollacoaster-ride, because like last season it will take three worse teams than us to go down, doncaster! (says it all) notts forest and.......mmm. [/quote]Lenny, do you have any evidence to back up your claim that the loaning clubs are paying us? It''s the first time I''ve ever heard it suggested.And as for "you buy league one, you get league one" - come on! Are you really saying that Championship clubs should only ever buy from other Championship clubs, or from the Prem? Otsemobor was in the League One team of the season when we bought him - if anyone can make the step up one division he can.
  18. [quote user="kdncfc"][quote user="Wighty"]I''ve always wondered that, CC. It''s all the board''s fault when we lose but it isn''t to their credit is we win. Quite inconsistent.[/quote] The problem is that we haven''t won very often, in their 12 years at the club we have had 2 seasons where we have finished in the top six and that is nowhere near good enough. They have done plenty of good things off the pitch but have allowed the team to deteriorate to a level that has put our status at considerable risk. They should have seen the situation we now find ourselves in coming 2 or 3 years ago and tried to sell the club then but they seem to have hung on too long because they didn''t want to sell at that time, that has been detrimental to the club imo. We have all known for some time that investment was needed and even now I think they are only selling because they have been forced into it by the Turners departure. I don''t bare them any ill will but I don''t think they deserve a heros send off when they go either. [/quote]"They should have seen the situation we now find ourselves in coming 2 or 3 years ago". If they had the ability to read the future they should have won the lottery several times over and then money wouldn''t be a problem. Get real!
  19. [quote user="bringbackterraces"]Delia and Michael have done a good job for the club but are now past their sell by date and need to get out ASAP and I think they know that as well!   If the current situation doesn''t improve I fear what happened to Leicester last season could happen to us! [/quote]Err... "what happened to Leicester"??? You mean bought by a rich, "driven" businessman who demands success? If PC takes over, or anyone else, I just wonder how long it will be before the whinging starts up again. Creating a successful football club is an art, not a science, and it''s entirely likely that we will be no better on the field or higher up the table even with his millions behind us.
  20. I was struck by how far he repeatedly went up the pitch at Barnsley. Still he''s saved us so many points, he''s allowed the occasional mistake.COME ON!
  21. [quote user="Tom"]Nuff Said.... do you play for Just E Nuff?[/quote]Who? - that''s a no!What are Radio Derby saying now??? [:D] [;)] [B]
  22. So who''s coming off the bench in the second half? I reckon Croft and Lita off and Bell and Lupoli on.
