  1. I recently moved to Dublin from the fine city. I could never support any other team, but would jump at the chance to go and watch a love game somewhere. It would be great to feel the atmosphere of a match, without any of the disappointment of a bad result. There would effectively be no bad results. I''m also looking forward to taking in a Hurling match. That looks brutal!
  2. Good post. I''ve been surprised more fans aren''t saying much the same - on here at least.
  3. I''m afraid I can''t see him staying. It will be a shame, but he''s better than the championship, whether we believe it or not.
  4. Based on the fact that he''s made a great living, and built a reputation as a good footballer, having played for Holland. He''d be our best player if we could get home scoring. Don''t you think it''s a bit funny how all these free scoring strikers have become bad players in our squad (Holt, Becchio, RVW, Hooper). What''s the common denominator?
  5. Probably none, but his naughty tweet towards the end of last season, as well as the clubs complete lack of confidence in him, to me at least, means even if another club won''t pay his wages, he won''t be playing here. Depends how much he wants to play I guess.
  6. I doubt we''ll keep hold of hooper and RVW though. If I was becchio, I doubt I''d want to stay either.
  7. I''ve got to admit, he had success at rangers, the moved to us briefly, Fulham, and Birmingham, and back to us. Every team he''s been involved with has been relegated. Coincidence?
  8. I''ve got a feeling that everything will work out with Neil Adams. Let''s be honest, if CH had not been sacked, we wouldn''t have overcome sunderlands run last season (could anyone have imagined us getting 3 wins?). I can understand the decision to give an Ncfc head a shot at the job, having already tested him in the harshest environment (5 games - 4 against champs league teams). We were all banging on about how well we were going to do last season, with the signings, and it didn''t happen. Now everyone is writing off the decision to put Neil Adams in. I just have a feeling he''ll prove us wrong.
  9. Fans are fickle. They don''t all worry about the big picture - that''s for the people who run the club. No fan was wrong to expect better following our outlay, and well publicised lack of debt. The fans have only expected what was achieved in previous seasons, under more pressing conditions (debt, low spending). We''ve been the perfect example of a club sleepwalking towards relegation. I went to Hull away, and we were awful. Playing against a promoted team with 10 men for an hour, and we had one shot. How were the fans to blame for that? 3000 city fans having a right go, not backed up at all by their team. It took months of those performances before fans started to lose patience.
  10. I''d say the anti Hughton agenda created a poisonous atmosphere on this message board, but not in the stadium. The atmosphere only went bad when we played badly and struggled when we maybe shouldn''t have. Every single club has fans who voice frustrations, ours is no different. Maybe it''s the lack of a right to do so, that spread the atmosphere, rather than just accepting that some fans might disagree. Too late now, we''re down.
  11. Sadly, I''m a new exile. I must admit, it''s much easier to deal with relegation than it would have been if I was still in wymondham. I managed a betting shop, so my job was literally to talk about sport. Difficult not to get too down about results when you have to spend the next 3 days talking about each one. Not looking forward to following from a distance next season though. Any advice gratefully received.
  12. The one thing worse than a sore loser - is a sore winner. Fair play to you guys - you wanted it more, and weren''t afraid to make the necessary changes. Enjoy another season as whipping boys.
  13. Just wondering if anyone can shed any light on how our relegation will affect our Category 1 academy status. I assume it will eat a fair chunk of our limited football league income, but should provide a decent opportunity to produce some more good quality players of our own.
