    Thankyou, I really enjoyed that summary.

    Ricardo's report v Palace

    As always a good summary Ricardo. Personally I thought the first half was really good and yes it was great to see Wes back in the team. The little flicks and passes more than make up for the frustrating parts, it just feels like something might happen when he''s on the field.Alartz, Jog on you toilet..(in my best Danny Dyer accent)

    Football or what?

    1. Cricket - It''s better than football for too many reasons but primarily because you support the game itself before your team.2. Cricket3. Cricket4. NHL Ice Hockey (which won''t start again until Sept)I also love cycling (although I get overtaken by everyone). I have a meeting at 11 and then at 12 tomorrow. I could cry. 
  5. Possibly a manager''s attire is simply a reflection of his environment. (Snakepit excepted of course)
  6. Great stuff as always Richardo.I thought we were unlucky to be one down at half time but the introduction of Kamara gave us a lift, hard to fit Wes''s creativity into a team with two up front, when will we realise he isn''t a blasted winger. After the Fulham game it was nice to be reminded once more why we turn out.This one is for Snowy and I''ve just raised my glass.

    ICF's Peterborough Report

    Thanks for the report. I liked the factual style with the comment about the Kane shirt thrown in.Look forward to the next one.

    How old are you guys ?

    38 I''m afraid but I look a bit younger with a hat on. Sorry, wrong question?

    Surely the reason why Wes seems to give the ball away more than everyone else is that he happens to have the ball more than everyone else.Always looking for it, always searching for a way to unlock a defence. Often it doesn''t come off and yes, he tries to take one too many men on (yesterday in the second half was a classic example) but he is the one player we have that can create an opening from nothing. He gave Arsenal''s many million pound midfield the runaround last week for goodness sake. You can''t just be functional at this level and win games. Much as he may frustrate, we need Wes on the pitch whenever possible.

    Quick question.......

    [quote user="The acolyte"]Indeed timmah. This forum is thick with scum.[/quote]Scuse me old chap. This isn''t WACOE or a Milwall forum. Your language and especially use of ''bintard'' (presumably from ''retard'') is utterly inappropriate.Tone it down old son.

  11. A sensible, balanced, well thought out original post. Ban this filth immediately.
  12. Silence, please let it be silence. I can''t stand minutes applause, it''s a case of let''s all do something we do lots at football matches anyway (unless you are at Portman Rd of course) To stay silent takes effort, anyone can make a noise.

    Cannot put my finger on what is wrong.

    [quote user="hogesar"][quote user="ting tong"]It is really easy to answer we have managed to appoint a modern day glen rodent? God help us.[/quote]1) Chris Hughton''s widely known as being one of footballs `nice guys`. Roeder does not fall into this category.2) Roeder signed 739 loan players.3) Roeder was a complete and utter Twunt, much like yourself infact.4) You can try all you like but we have no intention of taking Paul Jewell off your hands.[/quote]This this and this again Mr Hogesar. We were very unlucky to go away without a point yesterday. The introduction of Wes gives us so much more on the way forward. Yes, the strikers need to put the thing in but we should have got three against West aaam and we could have walked away with all three yesterday if the run of the ball had been different. We can use a bit of calm around the place right now.( PS Hogesar,  I presume you will be at the UEA in Nov for NFG plus Less than Jake? Can''t wait myself..)
  14. [quote user="fried_chicken"]A club is more than the 11 players that are on the pitch. Simon Lappin trains with the youth team every other day (all age groups) as well as doing first team training. He''s popular with the players and has never let us down. A club is more than a team; a club needs players that are happy to sit out and not be pushing for a starting place, Lappin will do a good job in defence or midfield. I wish people would understand that having a squad full of players with loads of ability isn''t a good way to form a successful club (unless you''re doing a Man City and are buying the worlds best).[/quote]This, again and again. By the OP''s argument we would never fill a reserve goalkeeper''s slot. The work contributing to the success of the first team stretches across the whole squad (even if some never play on a Saturday), who do the regular first teamers practice against all week to improve their game do we think? And he''s the damn King of Spain so back away from the Internet sunshine.. ;)

    wes hoollahan

    NCP: (definition from Google) ''Subpart J of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) directs EPA to prepare a schedule of dispersants, other chemicals''Not sure they are altogether concerned with Norwich City transfers. (Could be about parking of course.)

  16. Dean Coney. Not because he was a great player misunderstood, he simply took more abuse than was necessary for anyone to take. The point where ( As I seem to remember), the club asked the fans not to deride him when he came on made me feel rather ashamed. Mark Rivers stands out to me. Had pace, a bit of guile, could go past his man and on his day gave Chelsea the runaround. Hated by the sort of fans who would describe Wes as a ''luxury''. He gets my vote.

  18. I joined after getting really annoyed one evening over the abuse given to Delia Smith by some emotionally enthusiastic posters.

    I also used to really enjoy the ''Any other business'' pages until they were ruined.

    Once upon a time they were the preserve of some lively minds discussing all sorts of issues in a (mostly) mature fashion. I miss them.

    NCFC best behaved fans

    [quote user="BW"]No surprise our fans are seen as the best behaved and like London Canary i have the same warped thinking that this is a bad thing. As we all know i hate the prawn sandwich wig wearing brigade and want them out the club. O well cant get everything[/quote]And I want the faux hooligan, hiding behind a keyboard, fantasist brigade out.But as you say, we can''t get everything.
  22. LDC, I completely agree with you, the lack of perspective amongst sections of our fans beggars belief. It is profoundly depressing to sit in the Barclay at times, listening to people moan while we compete with squads costing millions and millions more than we have. I have been watching Norwich for 30 years and since the advent of the bloody ''Premier'' League it seems there is a proportion of our support who see going to the football as simply another option in their weekend ''Entertainment portfolio'', ergo if we lose they have in some way been cheated of their money. Yes we get frustrated after Blackburn type performances but it''s football. There''s always next week.Oh, and this Saturday it just happens to be Liverpool. Come friendly rain and get me out of the first Cricket game of the season!

    Great news Wiz! Hope you got your ''I survived the Paget'' badge and associated doggy bag on the way out.And God bless the people who looked after you. [:D]
  24. Thanks Richardo, I had to miss today''s game by any media and so have looked for your report to give me a decent view of proceedings.I hope the Carra faithful weren''t too downbeat (and quietly murdered those who might boo). Our season will be remembered for the games we win against multi million pound teams not those against a billion pound one. Oh and one huge gripe about the Guardian report (yeh, like there isn''t enough to moan about in that publication anyway..). At what point did ''City''  become synonymous with ''Manchester City'' ? Like we haven''t got two bloody Cathedrals. Sheesh.

    Then and now

    If i''m allowed to be the nasty cynical piece of work I know I am, I might comment on how silly those who booed after the Wigan home game appear now.Not that I would say it of course.
