    Interesting McNally Retweet

    "It looks to me like he retweeted by accident, when he meant to reply - as straight after was a reply to the guy, saying how much the appreciate the support etc etc. so I''d not read that much into it."

    McNally often retweets things like this to gauge reaction from other fans. I think its a great way to get general opinion of the fans.

    Pilks for the off ???

    I''d hope for £5mil to be honest. They paid £4mil for Walters...

    Hugh Jackman?!

    Here''s his soccer AM interview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k0HSEpkVx0

    He refers to the old farm derby being "football at its greatest", he clearly knows what he is on about!

    I''m pretty sure his mum is a fan or something, and lives in the area. Good enough reason as any!

    Marco van Ginkel...

    [quote user="Wooftie"]I would love this to be true... Would love to set up a strong connection with the Netherlands, it makes sense given our geographical location. Players could easily fly home from Norwich airport


    Please remember the stick Grant Holt gets for popping up to Carlisle.


    To be honest, the trip to Holland would be quicker than the trip to Carlisle (Depending where abouts in Holland, of course). Its a 50 minute flight to Amsterdam... You could barely get to Elveden in that time!

    Marco van Ginkel...

    I would love this to be true... Would love to set up a strong connection with the Netherlands, it makes sense given our geographical location. Players could easily fly home from Norwich airport where check in times are next to nothing. We''d be an attractive club as a stepping stone, not too much pressure - an ability to prove themselves in the EPL. Now with RVW joining, it would no doubt be something to swing fellow Dutch towards our club

    Arsenal Away

    The away ticket allocations really need to be looked at. I live in London, come back to 90% of home games and go to all London away games, including a few further afield (including Newcastle away), but don''t make ten a season. Why I shouldn''t be allowed to go to one of the best away days of the season is a joke, when others who only want to go to this one can.

    Besides, having to physically hand in ten stubs is an archaic method. Why can''t we have some sort of loyalty points system, like EVERY OTHER CLUB in the top flight. The same thing happened last season, and I ended up having to get a ticket in the home end. To be honest tickets should just be first come first served, with them being released to different groups first depending on which group they are allocated to.

    Tettey overrated?

    Tettey was quality breaking up the play today, as well as taking players on and even beat a few players a couple of times, though his passing today was poor. He needs to put in some hours on the training ground to improve that, just to not give the ball away. To be honest today, Bradley Johnson was pretty anonymous, thought that maybe fox could have been brought on around 70 mins in to keep us ticking, as they hadn''t really looked threatening up till then.
  9. I believe that the fact Pilks was selected by Ireland u21 does not stop him changing loyalties before he gets picked for the full international side (Eg. Emmanuel Frimpong has represented England at youth level, but I believe he''s pledged allegiance to Ghana). Part of me wants to believe thats why he pulled out of the Ireland squad - with some phantom injury, because he either has had some interest from the England camp. To be honest, a premier league winger with 8 goals should be in there. If Downing had scored 8 goals then he''d be rated as the world''s best winger by Roy

    Emile William Ivanhoe Heskey

    Provided he wasn''t on silly wages, he wouldn''t harm our squad. I wouldn''t mind him here

    Steer starting for u21s

    Rudd is in the England U21s, think that''ll be why Steer is starting. I''m pretty sure the U21s have gone on international duty

    Morison was crap

    I''d argue that he was also good v Fulham away. He charged down everything, blocked a couple of kicks from Schwarzer, won loads and loads of flick ons. Looks like a motivated player this season.
  13. Wooftie

    Wilbraham and Cody both score.

    Even Michael Nelson scored - Hooooooooooooton out

    John Ruddy - Help For Heroes

    I''m sure I read/heard somewhere he donates all his bonuses to Help for Heroes. I think he also said that if football hadn''t have worked out for him he would have joined up to the army. Sounds like a great guy!
  15. I really hope Vaughan gets a chance. He looked good in pre-season and really hungry for an oppurtunity to impress. Hopefully we''ll go back to two up top, Vaughan and Holt/Morison.

    England Tonight

    Butland should not really be seen as a long term replacement for Hart. Hart is still young and could potentially have another 3 major tournaments in him. By the time he retires, lets say 10 years, Butland won''t still be a young keeper. Surely you want a capable replacement rather than nurturing someone who probably will never be England''s number one.

    Steven Whittaker on 4 year deal!

    Just gonna put what a Rangers fan said to me about Whittaker:

    "Going forward he''s pretty decent, he scored like 12 goals two seasons ago but in terms of defending the word ''bombscare'' is probably most appropriate.

    "He always got caught out by pacy wingers like mcgeady, templeton etc. and he''s notorious for not watching the runner and balls being played inside him"

    He did say that he is a useful player to have though, can cover in numerous positions, for example he played in centre mid in the 07/08 UEFA cup run for Rangers. Can also play left back/left mid. I''m more than willing to give him a chance though.

    Give Holt his 3 years

    I''d be happy to let him rot for two years after the ridiculous way him and his agent have gone about things.

    If he feels he''s deserving of a three year contract, if he had another good season I''m sure he''d get one. It''s just stupid to say he should be getting a new contract with 2 years left, unless he was worth £20 million +, which he just isn''t

    Give Holt his 3 years

    Holt does not have a leg to stand on. He signed a new contract last year, and still has two years on his current one. Players do not have their contract renewed every year, it just does not work like that. You cannot sign a contract with no intention to fulfil it. No doubt he''d also want a pay rise with it also, probably to the tune of 5 or 10 grand a week, a lot of money. McNally has every right to tell him to F-off. It''s just ridiculous of him, as club captain, to hand in a request because he wants a new improved contract when he''s still got 2 years on his current one, especially when we don''t usually handle contract renewals ''till late anyway.

    If the rumours are true of West Ham offering 4.5 million for him I''d snap their hands off and get a replacement like Jordan Rhodes in.

    This whole situation is starting to really piss me off now...
  20. It''s an interesting thought, Does NCFC owe Holt, or Holt owe NCFC?

    You can''t blame him for wanting to leave to earn some more money. If he doesn''t leave or get a new contract now, he may never get the chance again. With 3 kids to support, I doubt he''d want to go back to being a tyre fitter...
  21. If I''m honest, If we could get 3 mil for him, and spend 5/6 on Jordan Rhodes I wouldn''t be to upset...

    spot the difference!

    I was lucky enough to have a tour around Carrow road for the Newcastle home game, and apparently the new trend is to cut the feet of the football socks, and replace them with tennis socks as the payers think they ''can feel the ball better'' or something. For some reason Wes likes to cut the foot off, turn it upside down and then wear it. Since I heard that I cant stop looking at his socks when he''s on the pitch, because he always does it. Some lucky charm or something

    Chelski on Saturday

    Having watched Chelsea on the weekend, I can tell you first hand they were nothing special. They lack natural width, both sides. Mata is definitely not a left winger, and always drifts in to support the front man (likely to be Torres, who played very well). Sturridge has to be a doubt, and even he''s not natural on the right hand side. I don''t think we''ll win the aerial battle on Cahill and Terry either, although they are not the quickest, They are likely to be in trouble if . Bosingwa at right back is by far the weakest link in their team (provided Luiz doesn''t play)

    I know its a long shot, but I''d like us to line up as we did earlier on at Stamford bridge - before Whitbread got injured I.e. a 3-2-2-1-2 with the two wing backs attacking


    R. Martin Ayala Whitbread

    Naughton Tierney (if fit)/Surman

    Fox Johnson


    Morison Holt/Jackson

    Or failing that a 4-2-3-1


    Naughton/R.Martin R.Martin Ayala/Whitbread Tierney/Naughton

    Fox Johnson

    Bennett Hoolahan Pilkington

    Ordering online WBA cup game

    As far as I''m aware, especially for away matches, they allocate them from the front and in rows, and fill them up that way, eg. the first ones sold are front row and so on. I''m pretty sure if you order 4 tickets, provided there are four spaces next to each other, they will put you all together, and not two at the end of one row, and two at the beginning of the next.

    Hope that makes sense
  25. We''ve always only really pressed, especially big teams in our own half. They can pass it about the back four all they like, they can''t hurt us from there. Only if we''re chasing the game and we need the ball back is it necessary to expend all our energy chasing shadows. Especially against Arsenal, they should be able to keep the ball all day in the back four if only one or two people press. If any more press we leave ourselves open to men off the ball to run into space. At the end of the day, we''ve lost by one goal to an Arsenal side who have won their last 5 league games on the trot. It''s not as if we were battered and it should have been five or six. Pressing all their back four would have been suicide.

    I would like to see Holt starting again, I thought aside from our goal, Morison didn''t have the best of games. He had a few too many poor touches in good attacking positions for me. But how can you drop a guy who has been scoring plenty of goals? That''s the problem Lambert has now.
