  1. So constantly defending Delia and co when someone such as i , smudger etc make our feelings known is not supporting the board? I could drag up all your posts where you argue in there defence but the pink un moderaters probably wouldnt get home till next xmas. You dont do yourself any favours do you with comments like that.
  2. I was listening to the radio lastnight when i heard a commentator say ''He would have to be like Lindford Christie with Ben Johnsons chemist to get that ball'' Class! Surely they think of these quotes before hand? Anybody else know of any good ones?
  3. Difference was Fergie had success in scotland with Aberdeen and a couple of lower league clubs, Grants unproven and blasts players publicly for example scoring 4 goals in 2 games-somthing Fergie would never do publicly-thats how he keeps the dressing room. { and hasnt scored since-coincidence? }and is tacticaly niave and Fergie always had man utd play good football, even when they were at lowly positions like 4th in the league. The Grant and Fergie example is a joke. Fergie won the league, cup, and conquered europe with the mighty aberdeen and people forget that, man utds brought him in to win the league, Grant was brought in to challenge for the top 6, instead we find ourselves in the bottom 3. Grant has lost the dressing room.
  4. Bryan Robsons record is outstanding! Middlesboro-relegated, Bradford-relegated, West Brom-relegated, Sheff Utd? How he keeps getting top jobs because hes a big name player is beyond me. What about all the money hes wasted, especially at middlesboro-im sure he signed more strikers in one season than he had players in other positions.
  5. [quote user="macattack"] Why are we paying for a CEO who is presiding over a Football Club failing, massively in debt, in the relegation zone and providing little hope for the future...in any other business he would have gone...! [/quote] Here, here. The smugness and arrogance of mugging us off as gullable fools really gets my goat.
  6. [quote user="blahblahblah"] [quote]Thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay in response. The truth is i did think you came into the game late mainly because of your very strong support for the board which could of suggested you not knowing any different and your love of all things Huxs. Anyway the only thing that doesnt sit well with me still is the fact that after following city passionatly since the early 80''s and thus seeing us reach the highest the club has ever been in the following decade, you still support a board who has now taken us down to the lowest point in your supporting years. How can this be CA?[/quote] I have also been supporting City since the early 80s Arthur, and the board still have my support.  It comes under the heading "benefit of the doubt" I guess.  I assume / hope that the people who are giving countless hours and many millions of pounds to the team are doing so for the benefit of all who support the team, and are working to the best of their ability.  That is not to say that they get everything right in my opinion, but most of the time I think they do.  I''d rather have board members who can laugh off "the muppet show" than board members who attempt to sue supporters who use message boards for defamation of character, when all those people have done is accurately predict the state of affairs at their club and the likely results of the state of affairs. The team are at their lowest point in years partly as the result of a lack of confidence in possession of the ball, partly because times are tight and the club try not to throw money at footballing problems to the detriment of the longer term.  The confidence issue will either be resolved by the current manager, or his replacement, the next few games will tell us which.  In the mean time, unless someone walks through the door with pot-fuls of cash, the club will continue to work within its'' constraints and those there will continue to try their hardest, whether or not you support them. [/quote] So how many years do you give this board? Why did Chase [and i hated the fella in the end] get the boot? Why cant we attract investors when its clear to see many would invest? I supported this board to the hilt at first but its clear to see the opitions of taking us forwa have ran out. Recently  the ex owner of Hull has taken over Huddersfield after stating he was looking to invest into a new club for Months but nobody wanted him. Why? To say nobody will do it is wide off the mark and the time to be fussy in who does it has long gone imo.
  7. [quote user="ob1"] Please Grandad - stop banging on about the good old days... it''s a little pathetic. [/quote] But not as pathetic as you banging on about how great you think we are under this bunch you silly sausage, they were great days and as your clearly a young pup who can only remember NCFC under this lot, a draw against the mighty scunny must feel like a Great night in Munich!
  8. [quote user="cityangel"] Arthur, As Gazza says I''m a season ticket holder and have been for well over 25 years, first got hooked when my Dad took me a couple of times and have been a passsionate supporter ever since. I went to most of the friendly games pre season and so far I''ve been to Hull and Manchester City  this season and my next trip will be the WBA game. May I ask what that tells you about me and please be nice[:D] CA   [/quote] Thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay in response.

How can this be CA? Regards.
  9. [quote user="Dicky"] Most pathetic post I have ever seen from a so-called supporter.  You are not a supporter of NCFC in any way and like all true supporters I hope we stuff Scunny tonight and go on to have a good season. You obviously are the kind of person who likes winding other people up, which I think is incredibly sad - I think it would be a good thing if every supporter on here ignored all of your future posts, or perhaps just replied with ignore the troll.  I know you would still have you buddies who will reply, but hopefully after a while they will get bored and ignore you as well. Come on City - hatrick for JC tonight with a couple from Hux (as a supporter, I can but be positive).     [/quote] Yeah great idea Dicky and by ignoring such posts we could just post messagers praising the way the club is going and how great everything is at CR. It would be great wouldnt it, you could even sell green and yellow tinted glasses outside the barcley before the games but the biggest earner could come from the buckets of sand you could sell so we could all bury our heads in them after yet anougher pi?@ poor performance orchastrated by a weak board with no ambition....back to the drawing board son of smith!
  10. [quote user="cityangel"][quote user="Cluck "][quote user="philbuzz"] Smudger,Cluck, Arthur Whittle, Mellow Yellow, Wizard etc,etc are you actually members of NCISA? If your not why are you complaining? If you are leave, simple decision! I''m not a member but it seems this post has turned into a typical witch hunt with Kathy being the focus of "on the pitch problems". It always the same on here, people constantly critising everything to do with Norwich, constantly finding conspiracy in everything. I really do wonder what you lot will do when we actually start to win games, what will you have to moan at?!! I''m not happy at things on the pitch either,but I hardly see how moaning about it and slating each other all the time is helping the situation! Do something constructive! Smudger why don''t you go & look for investment bankers,or oil rich tycoons who wish to invest millions in us! Rant over Phil [/quote] If I could understand what you''re on about I could try to answer.....but at a stab I''d say it''s about half past seven. [/quote]   He''s asking you if you are a member of NCISA so have the decency to answer him. Seems theres loads of people on here who want the NCISA to act for them but they dont want to join and be members. [/quote] As asked on a prvious thread which you didnt reply to, may i ask how long you have truthfully followed Norwich/football and how did you get into it? Now by all means call me a nosey parker and to mind my own buisness but i really am trying to form an opinion on the type of supporter you are. Im not trying to suggest your not a fan or even a bigger supporter than most its just i think there is now a different type of supporter nowadays and you seem to fit the bill. I swear this is not meant in anyway to patronise you at all,just out of interest so maybe than i can understand and reason a little better with you.
  11. [quote user="Bomber"]I must admit I cant agree with you on this one Smudger - My dad and I are members as working shifts it is no point being a season ticket holder - I always go with him and value the time together as it is a great opportunity to have a one on one with him for the afternoon or evening without wives grandchildren etc being there - we do a meal at Riverside and then a couple of beers before going to the game - win lose or draw I am not bothered (although would prefer a win) because I have a great day out and value the time that I have with him just the two of us.  We will be there tonight and I have paid for the tickets but like I say win lose or draw (not bothered) just value the time[/quote] Come on everyone pull yourselfs together, are we now turning this thread into some silly American Father/Son ''lets play baaaaallllll pops'' love fest!!??? Who knows what Smudge and his fathers relationship is, maybe they see each other all the time? God no wonder the old sentiments of Little old family club Norwich is so strong at our club with melodramatic  Yankee wannabes preaching the good son bible!!
  12. [quote user="cityangel"][quote user="Smudger"] I will be itching for a Scunthorpe win tomorrow night to heap more pressure on our clueless board and those who have backed them over the last few years....  C''mon Scunthorpe!!! [/quote]   Just about sums you up, we''re better off without wasters like you there. [/quote] Although i would never want city to lose i can certainly understand Smudges reasoning.....Ever heard the saying ''short term pain for long term gain.? I can understand his stance and its nothing to do with him being a Scummer or whatever you decide to call him for dearing to have the balls to say it as it is. These so called ''timewasters'' might be doing less damage to the club than you think CA, in fact i would say the damage is being caused a little closer to yourself then you think.
  13. [quote user="A Load of Squit"] [quote user="Arthur Whittle"]Well its not rocket science mate, Squit has said its untrue that we are now in our worse position on and off the pitch for decades under Delia and co and ive asked him to explain how this is untrue.[/quote] Arthur, its a quote, its not my fault you can''t keep up.   [/quote] Whatever squit. Your posts just seem to get more and more pointless. Big and clever? Nahh. Tedious and time wasting..........?

Rant over Phil [/quote] No im not a member and i have no intentions of being one because its grown into nothing more than a inner circle and until it changes is all in all a waste of time and i have neither the time or energy to change it. Ive thanked the NCISA in the past for the good work after Chase but its done nothing since and is nothing more than a glove puppet to the chef. I find it hard to stomach that members tell me i should be ashamed of myself for questioning why the group hasnt asked the board why there has been such a dramatic decline in fortunes in the last few seasons, is that such a bloody crime? its my money and im entitled to ask such questions, but its clear to see what side the group is on even when many can now see where the blame is. Im not asking them to take sides but not to question them is a joke imo. If a company was ran in such a way do you not think the Union would step in and question the managers decision? There are many people prepared to invest these days but it seem no one wants to come to little old Norwich and would rather put there money in bigger clubs such as QPR and more recently...ahem..Huddersfield.....Wonder why that is?
  15. P.S. Kathy and all-Arthur Whittle is my real name. Im too old for an alias, and am not hiding from anyone. Check the evening news letters pages, they even print my address for christs sake!
  16. [quote user="Bigmarkcanary"][quote user="Arthur Whittle"][quote user="Kathy"][quote user="Arthur Whittle"][quote user="Kathy"] For the record we meet at the Blyth Jex school. Wizard, Arthur, Smudger et al - as you seem to be experts on supporters groups, what they should be called, what they should do, what they should say, who they should talk to, whether or not they should go to matches, whether or not they should want City to win, where they should meet etc, why dont you set up your own supporters group? I wish you the best of luck. You will need it. Oh, and you would have to use your real names. Oh dear. [/quote] Absolute rubbish again Kathy.....thats just grand isnt it, me and cluck and co are talking crap are we? Come on Kathy stop skipping the touchy subject and give me your view on the board, why are you buying time? Surely your stance should be made by now? Your little click has been sussed out and if you dont believe me ask anyone who thankfully doesnt bother with NCISA because they see it for what it is.....a cosy little circle. I will be the first to thank you for your hard work in times gone by but your time is up imo and if you dont take a long hard look and change your outlook, people will also hold you responsible with the clubs decline along side saviour smith. Arthur Whittle [or maybe not????.jeez i couldnt make it up!!!] [/quote] And what about the people who dont agree with you Arthur? What should I say to them? [/quote] And still non the wiser to my Question........one more poor result and the saviours of NCFC will run out of excuses to back the board....i would imagine these are tricky times for the inner circle! [/quote] Arthur Prattle - is that your real name?? [;)] Perhaps if you answer Kathy''s reasonable question, she might just give you an answer to the three that you asked. Oh, and there''s also the other two that she asked - or is she expecting too much?? Are you going to start a supporter''s group? What about the people that don''t agree with you? What should she say to them, in your opinion? [/quote] No How can a group Called independent not voice any concerns with regard to running the club? Seems a little silly to call it independent supporters when its clear to see they are not going to question smith and co. Please asnswer me this Kathy.......Are the NCISA and the Board pals to the extent you will not question there running because that is how its comng across and more and more people are seeing it. If you care as much as you say why has no public statement been issued about the decline of NCFC?  The league doesnt lie and the paperwork makes poor reading to so i think as a paid up season ticket holder for more years than most i have a right to know wheret the so called voice of the supporters stand on this shocking decline.
  17. [quote user="LinkNR9"] How would you know what happens at Carrow Road, you don''t go to the matches! Smurf, the armchair critic! I''m very unhappy about the situation as well, but why don''t you come up with some constructive ideas rather than just being negative, antagonistic and increasingly obtuse (look it up) with every post. You''re just an irritating, attention-seeking individual. By the way, can I congratulate you on squaring up to MWJ who is a man in, what, his 70s. You are sooooo brave. That just about sums you up.       [/quote] You really baffle me. You say your not happy with situation but defend the very people who are causing it! MWJ is a very patronising man who ive had the displeasure of meeting on many occasion and if you even suggest wrongdoing on his behalf he jumps on the ''call yourself a fan'' pun. I for one am glad the saviour is being told of the current disgust amongst fans but as long as the likes of you are mopping his head when a smudge upsets him, its all going to fall on deaf ears. Keep up the spin mike, your doing a great job on some.
  18. Well its not rocket science mate, Squit has said its untrue that we are now in our worse position on and off the pitch for decades under Delia and co and ive asked him to explain how this is untrue.

  21. [quote user="cityangel"][quote user="Smudger"] I only said something like hoot, hoot... I hope we get spanked 5-0 tomorrow [/quote]   Well you and Arthur are going to look pretty silly in his local cheering when the opposition score arent you? [/quote] Yep carry on CA you really are a gem.......May i ask how long you have followed city? I get the impression you came into the sport late in life? Maybe your hubby got you into it because you sure as hell have a very limited knowledge of the game and what to expect from a team of no hopers run by a useless bunch of cooks!

  23. [quote user="A Load of Squit"][quote user="Arthur Whittle"][quote user="A Load of Squit"][quote user="Arthur Whittle"][quote user="A Load of Squit"] Arthur, I now understand where your low self esteem comes from. Your father used to beat you and your son became a football hooligan. Arthur, you must learn to see yourself in a better light then you can see theworld in a more positive light, this negativity will make you ill.   [/quote] Dont be so silly Squit my father never beat me and as for my son being a hooligan well yes he was a bit silly, early 20s in the Paras and in a foriegn country with his mates, a recipe for disaster but i can tell you this hes seen the wrong he done and  i wouldnt ask for a better son,im sure you''ve always been a saint?. As for making me ill........WHAT? its a past time mate, ive had a great life and its no different now, in fact its great, football is my hobby not my life. [/quote] ''A bit silly'', you''re definitely in denial.   [/quote] Grow up oh lord of perfection. I bet hes now twice the bloke you''ll ever be. Served his country and now runs my buisness whilst supporting his family, im sure we''re allowed a couple of mistakes in live and hes more than made it up imo. Get over it silly! [/quote] So your son is allowed to make mistakes but those working at Carrow Road are not. Who''s being silly?   [/quote] Yeah, big difference between my son making a couple of mistakes, and a board ruining a club. Dont be so patheticv. Grow up silly.
  24. [quote user="cityangel"][quote user="Arthur Whittle"]    The user polls section on the demonstration vote would suggest that nearly half of voters will demonstrate. [/quote]   But only 47 voted Arthur so that doesnt tell you anything does it other than 18 people maybe prepared to demonstrate which means that maybe 6 of them will turn up. If you feel so strongly about doing something more publically why dont you organise a protest or attend the AGM to make your point to the board ?? [/quote] No, what it shows is 18 out of every 47 have had enough. I know it would take the club closing before you spoke out against the club but from what i hear down the pub, and through work is there are a hell of a lot of people pissed off with the club. Dont you read the letters in the evening news? The minority is slowly becoming the majority just like the chase days.
