  1. I like the look of this as Ben and Tim are skilful in bringing the ball out and then we would have a commanding figure in the air in the middle. Possibly a bit unfair to drop Hanley after his 'recent' performances but we could always utilise three out of those four centre halves to keep them fresh. One of the two central midfielders would certainly need to stay defensive. And we would get the best out of Emi and Todd in this shape. We reverted to something similar to this when chasing games last season and generally we clawed back a point from a losing position e.g. Bristol City away with Max as one of the wing backs scoring.
  2. Same here, life is more important than football and some of the comments coming out of football have shown it up for what it is nowadays ruined by too much money. From a business perspective NCFC look likely to suffer far more than those clubs owned by billionaire owners simply because we seek to live within our means and do not want to go into debt. With the bullish attitude to complete this season at all costs it’s beginning now to look likely that we will not only be relegated (unless playing on neutral grounds to no fans gives us more of a chance to win more games) but also lose a significant amount of income from our season in the PL that will impact greatly on being in a strong financial position to return straightway.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion KIO. I would find it very hard to throw them away. However, as I live 50 miles from Norwich delivering them may be a problem.
  4. You can have all of mine (866 copies) for that price! The postage would certainly need to be rather higher however. See my post from earlier in the week: Posted Wednesday at 10:01 Hi everyone, I do hope that you are keeping well and safe. With a bit of time on my hands I have completed a yearly totals list of programmes that I have in my possession from 1972 to date. From what I understand they have little monetary value but if anyone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it as I do wish to move them on. I'm keeping a handful of those that have particular sentimental value to me, the finals, and all of the away games that I have attended - none of these are included in the numbers. hopefully you will be able to open this document: Norwich City Football Club Programmes.pdf Norwich City Football Club Programmes.docx The first season has those Football League inserts in them. Loads of memories here, joys and sorrows. What I had forgotten was that we became a really established top flight club after our debut season in 1972/73. This is demonstrated by the fact that we were in the top league for 21 out of 23 seasons from 1972 to 1995.

  6. It seems to me that a closure on this season, sooner rather than later, is not only inevitable but the right decision to make full stop in what we’re facing as a nation, in Europe and the wider world. There is absolutely no way that any medical staff can be drawn away from their magnificent work in dealing with the virus for months. Leaving the footballing world hanging in the balance with some clubs training and others unsure what to do for weeks on end and then finally making a decision to end the season in May or June seems crazy to me. Make the decision now and then the footballing world can stop, have its close season (probably for many many months) and prepare for a new season in August/September/October/November...
  7. If this is true this will influence their decision making, sadly football sold its soul to the money men and women long ago and as big fish says the PL will look after number one above the integrity of the football world.
  8. What do we all think? Is today’s outcome a dent in the possibility of this Season being called ‘null and void’ with extending the season ‘indefinitely’? Or is it simply an attempt by the PL to hang on until the last possible moment before declaring it?
  9. Welcome to the forum NCY! It will certainly be a good idea to email the ticket office directly and share your predicament. Normally tickets become available closer to the game when people put their unwanted tickets onto buy back but there are rarely two together. Hopefully you will get some.
  10. A handful of them are now beginning to realise just how far away they are from being even a competitive championship club. We know it can all change but there has been a slow and steady decline since their administration when they overspent on players and two new stands.
  11. Their supporters are just beginning to realise this if you ever look at the TWTD forum. The very title of it tells you everything about their club doesn’t it? It would still take several years for them to recover with a new multi billion pound owner as those kind of changes do not happen overnight.
  12. A wonderful night and I will never forget it. In fact historically for you younger supporters that was a major turning point in the two clubs fortunes with hindsight because in general since then we have been vastly the better side with only the odd occasions when the ++++ have been in a higher league. They have won zilch since 1981, been into administration and now are at their lowest league place for over 60 years. Happy days! And to add they are in debt to their owner to around £100 million and we have money in the bank and own our ground, training facilities etc when they do not. A lot has changed in the last 35 years. The previous 25 years to that were pretty much the other way.
  13. I was rather surprised ahead of the start on Wednesday to read in the programme that spurs had only beaten us once in the FA Cup. I think it was by 2-0 and was the most recent time we drew them. Other than that we had triumphed in three possibly four ties, two after a replay, one being in 1959, if my memory serves me correctly.
  14. Really appreciate the feedback everybody! I will settle down at the weekend and watch with an Adnams or two in my hand and savour!
