    no noise at carrow road

    Of course he was at the ipswich game - he had a blue scarf tied round his little wrist.

    Protest Postponed

    Well done Smudger. Its the right decision and you deserve some credit.

    Mark Noble?

    Just had that name thrown at me - cant see where he would fit in, but my source seems confident.
  4. [quote user="we8wba"]

    i cant believe how split you fans really are there seems to be two sides for one side

    i mean its not just the board in dismay its the fans n all at the moment

    i know not every fan will agree on the same point, you never will get everyone agreeing

    but 70% want protest stopped 30% want it on

    so many want youth to come through, so many want experience

    so many all they do is moan saying blah blah we relegated, so many actually trying to encourage the team

     

    if you all pulled together on the right decisions you will give the team, club, board the boost they need

    i think only thing you lot would all agree on is what n idiot i am, but hell im probably the only one talking realistically, sensible on here half the time

    [/quote]If somebody had Effed up Wolves to the extent that we have been destroyed, your support would be pretty angry too. The previous chairman was vilified, with good reason, and the levels of violence when he was at his nadir, were huge. Believe me, it would have frightened wolves. I personally disagree with the protest, I prefer to think it will all iron itself out, as the board position is now untenable. Support? 25,000 average gates to watch the sort of crap we have for 3 seasons? You may find this hard to understand, but we happen to think our club is better than most/all of the dross we encounter and lose to on a weekly basis, and our support is there for all to see. its not for you to be satisfied with 24th place for Norwich City.

    Graham Paddon....What was he like?

    [quote user="Bigmarkcanary"][quote user="1st Wizard"]

    [quote user="charlies dad"]Buccaneering left sided midfielder, known as Budgie, due to his resemblance to Adam Faith, long blond hair, and beard, noted for 30-40 yard left foot screamers into the top corner. Once scored a hat trick at Highnbury in the league cup, he played in the final that year. Left, depsite John bond trying to stop the deal, but re-emerged only to break his leg at Sunderland in his 3rd game back. An old fasshioned inside forward. He has no equal in the current side, they arent fit to speak his name by and large.[/quote]

    Absolutely spot on Charlies dad, budgie had a thunderous shot which had to be seen to be believed. I''m still shocked by this news though.

    [/quote]

    So then guys, did he have a similar shot on him to what Jerry Goss had?

    [/quote] Better, Bigmark! Better.
  6. Even Robert Chase didnt ban protestors. If the Smith junta followed this course of action imagine the national coverage? As ive stated before, i loathe the board and all their works, however, i feel that the wheels are now turning inexorably towards a change, there is too much strength of feeling and most people have their eyes open now. The protest has become a focus point for all types of nastiness, and i feel that everybody needs to take a big step back. .

    Graham Paddon....What was he like?

    Im pretty sure he must feature in the 100 best City goals dvd, he scored some absolute beauties. One free kick against Manchester City from just inside the Man City half. Heavy ball of course, it dipped, swerved, twisted over all the players heads before beating Joe Corrigan all ends up. Fantastic.

    when did everyones pain start

    Millwall away. 1-0 defeat. A midweek nonentity of a game, listened to it on the radio. Think it was the night of ''Crazy Barry'' fame. It was opbvious then something was badly wrong and had permeated deep into the club.
  10. Totally agree with this. The board will keep - this would in no way be letting them off the hook.   Paddon was a swashbuckling figure in the first City team i saw. Instantly recognisable, and a big entertainer, with that left peg, which resembled a cannon. Lets all get together and show some respect to a true canary legend. Whatever our politics. And lets win for Paddons memory. How about it?

    2 new loan signings this weekend.

    Dont know who, but in addition to Stephenson being confirmed as coach, 2 loanees are all but done and dusted. Subject to being rubber stamped. I have no idea who they are, but we should find out soon.  
  12. charlies dad

    get the porn barons in

    Im not entirely convinced the Turners are interested in putting money into the club. If they are however, might I suggest that NOW would be as good a time as any to start?
  13. [quote user="Arthur Whittle"]

    Why do you feel the need to have a pop at people with different views to yours? I doubt the protestors will be mouthing off to the paying fans going in. Sums you up, and you have the gall to call us childish!!

    Ps- I dont think my son who will be attending protests would be fazed by your pathetic threat, he served 12 years in the army as a Para...Be warned as you would say[;)]

    Matty Pattinson Signs for us!!!!!!!!!!

    [quote user="Michael Starr"]

    [quote user="charlies dad"]I think you are mixing Smart up with somebody else, Michael. He is a 4''11"  9 stone right winger who does 100 metres in under 10 seconds.[/quote]

    LOL! I think you might be right! Why did I think he was a central defensive midfielder? How amusing... all this playing players out of position malarky has gone to my head.

  15. The difference between the ipswich and sheffield games was the effort and enterpriise shown by the team. Only god knows how ipswich went in at half time 2 up, they were totally outplayed, as they were in the second, when only wretched refereeing saved them. sheffield however was, like most performances home and away an absolutely disgraceful affront to the paying public. The players couldnt show less respect to the support if the took off their shirts before the match and urniated on them in front of the main stand. The players have to give - the supporters are spent out.

    [quote user="Geordie Observer"]

    The toon revolution at Carrow Road has begun!!!    

     

    First Roeder, then Clark, now Pattison, so who will be next.....................Stephen Carr?

    [/quote] Yes please, and Ameobi, and that Irish boy who plays on the wing.. whats his name?

    Matty Pattinson Signs for us!!!!!!!!!!

    [quote user="Michael Starr"]

    Clearly this is a Lee Clark signing rather than a Glenn Roeder one... Lee was youth team manager at Newcastle and would probably know this lad inside and out (oo''errr). It appears to address another key position lacking quality, and like others here... i''ve never heard of him before!!! I can''t really pass judgement until i''ve seen him for myself.

    South African youngster? hmmm, I wonder if he''s mates with Bally Smart! Could forge a decent relationship in midfield. Smart as a defensive midfielder, and this lad as our more attacking option... just a thought.

    do we need delia

    [quote user="Chrisr"]

    Sorry Royal Anglian, but this smacks of retrogade sexist tosh.

    Oh but woman your place is in the kitchen is it not........

    24,000 fans per game, a serviceable debt, a season in the premier league (do not underestimate achievement vs resource) , and more than that a number of people who''s primary interest is in the long term sustainablity of the football club. Oh, and yes i''ve been at the forums etc and listened. Delia''s business acumen is responsible for so much of our current fanbase and revenue. I was there standing on the barclay in front of 12000 fans...... (no I do not work for the club!)

     

    [/quote] You omitted to mention the worst team in the clubs history and the probability of third division football. If the downward spiral under smith is allowed to continue, our local derby will be against Norwich United. But at least we will still have a football club.

    Chase/Boxing Day/Southend!

    Agree totally 100%. There is no need to organise anything. a spontaneous combustion is just around the corner.

    GREAT TIME TO PROTEST.....NOT!

    I feel that a demonstration would not be a good idea in the current climate. Some prat on here has already stated he wants to fight with demonstrators, and more of his ilk on either side could  make for a dangerous situation. Speaking as someone who takes his children to the game, i dont think violence is a good hor''s douerve to a football match, however poor the football is. I believe that if the status quo is maintained, the board will have garnered enough rope with which to hang itself, because the general mood has shifted to a position where the board have little support left. I cannot stomach the thought of third division football, likewise i cannot stomach this board - lets keep our poweer dry, and if Coventry goes the way of all the other performances this season, let rip at the end of the game. When dissenting voices will be at their loudest and in the vast majority.

    just read......

    [quote user="lobster catcher"]Is it me or is it a fact,the pinkun message board is far more vicious ,vindictive and damm right nasty than the other norwich forum''s.I have been reading some of them and there dosn''t seem to be the gang mentality on them[:D][/quote]

    It must be you. Read the quotes from Yarmouth forum and WOTB and rethink what you have just posted.

    Smith & Jones, a vote of no confidence

    Excellent post. The facts, as they are, presented in a format only the thickest board apologist could deny.

    [quote user="nutty nigel"][quote user="charlies dad"][quote user="nutty nigel"]

    [quote user="charlies dad"]With the mounting anger surrounding the city, and it is there, you can feel it. Vitriol is unavoidable. This situation is completely untenable, and has been allowed to stagnate for 3 years now. Football is a passionate subject, and passions are aroused, particularly when one loves ones football club as the people of Norfolk and beyond do, with an almost irrational fervour. Saturday hurt, as did tuesday as do the dozens of other similar bad days at the office we have endured. Nothing is being done to arrest the decline, the board and a few other supporters appear to prefer infighting to addressing the problems. fiHuman nature dictates  that this will only antagonise already inflamed opinion, and the longer the situation worsens, the more vitriolic things will get. It goes hand in hand with a feeling of helplessness. If you think its bad now, wait until May.[/quote]

    After all the other times have we got the scapegoat right this time CD? Why should I trust the mass hysteria on here? The baying mob have been wrong so many times in the past, how do we know they''ve got it right this time? Is the grass always greener? Out goes Holt in comes Hughes. Out goes Worthy in comes Grant. Out goes Etuhu in comes Russell. Out goes Doherty? Out goes Smith?? What comes in and what makes you believe it''s better?

     

     

     

    So you do admit they are responsible? Thats a start.

     

    It has nothing to do with scapegoats. That would imply that nothing is wrong. Quite clearly that is nonsense. something is very wrong indded. As wrong as it can be. I never beleived that saccking worthington was the be all and end all, the pontification before it finally happened proved this to be correct. and who appointed the totally hapless Grant?  The blame has to be shared amongst the board (mostly), the managers (partly) and the players (partly). I for one am not prepared to let the people briinging Norwich City football Club to its knees off the hook.  

     

    [/quote][/quote]

    So just to clarify this, what''s important to you right now is that we don''t let the people responsible for our position off the hook?
