  1. Happy with the win.  Bit fortunate with the sending off as I think it was a bit far out to be deemed a goal scoring opportunity.  Would have been fuming if role was reversed and Ward/Barnett were sent off.  Still good to see Norwich actually finish a team off, in previous seasons we could have easily lost this game.
  2. Would he have been in the same crop of Southampton Youth players as Surman?
  3. Be gutted if we throw away a two goal lead or the ref decided to call game off!!
  4. Reading the statement by McNally on the pinkun website, he says Ian Butterworth will take control of team for Saturday. If Crook was still part of the set up then I would have thought the statement would have said Ian Butterworth and Ian Crook will take control of Saturday game at Exeter. So I guess Crook has gone. I am probably adding 2 and 2 and getting 5!!
  5. If Gunn did get the sack who would be a good replacement. The usual names come up of Boothroyd & Tilson. The name Ricky Sbragia came up in one post about managers who had walked away in the best interests of the club. Which got me thinking would he be able to do a job at Norwich in League 1? I think the Sunderland players liked him and he seemed to be able to motivate them and have a bit of tactical knowledge. What do others think about Ricky Sbragia as our Manager? Not sure what he is up to at the moment.
  6. Did not go to the match yesterday. Do you think the City players thought they had to just turn up and the result would be theirs!!! Perhaps they thought they were the dogs you know what and under estimated Colchester and went in with the wrong mentality. Think the OP was aimed at fans but perhaps the players were also getting Billy Big Spuds!! Trying to get a positive from the game which may be a wake up call that both supporters and players needed and we bounce on from this.
  7. If we had lost by the odd goal I would have been disappointed but would give Gunn the benefit of the doubt. But to get hammered 7-1 at home to an average league 1 team is a disgrace, especially after relegration previous season. If I were the manager and city fan/legend I would hold my hands up and go. But I can’t see Gunn doing this, which is why I question his love for the club!! To think I was very optimistic before the game and telling colleagues at work during the week I fancied us to win the league. Early days I know but just so disappointed and bitter at the moment.
  8. The 08/09 pre season was pretty poor and look what happened that season Date Opponent H/A Result Wed July 16 Gorleston A 1-8 Sat July 19 Ahlafors IF A 1-2 Tue July 22 Falkenbergs FF A 0-3 Fri July 25 Dereham Town A 2-1 Mon July 28 Tottenham Hotspur H 1-5 Tue July 29 King''s Lynn A 2-2 Sat Aug 2 Colchester United H 2-2 So that seems to contradict the rule of thumb!!
  9. Mmm Crewe Right back, didn''t we learn from the previous Crewe right back we signed!!!lol 
  10. Regarding the new owner scenario.  I am living in a dream world probably but hoping that Huckerby may have something to do with the new owners.  Did Hucks say in a interview that he rents somewhere close to Silicone Valley where all the Microsoft people live.  Do you think he has got in with Bill Gates and has sold/persuaded Bill to purchase Norwich!!!!!   Ha Ha.[:P]
  11. Two mates and I are going.  I brought my tickets on Wednesday and over the phone and tickets still not arrived.  Spoke to the ticket office today and explained that tickets had not arrived and the postman out were I live does not deliver until lunch time on Saturday.  Anyway lady at the ticket office said they would call Coventry Saturday morning who would re print the tickets and I could collect them at the Coventry ground.  Has this happened to anyone else before and if so were tickets there?
