  1. er because he''s our best defender and we''re already shipping goals
  2. [quote user="ncfcstar"][quote user="WeAreYellows49"] Norwich have always been a selling club though, so I don''t know why anyone is shocked by this move.  It''s called robbing peter to pay paul [:(] I ain''t happy Bell has gone but he''s gone now and didn''t want to stay with us. [/quote] If we''d have sold to someone better than Coventry, then yes I could understand it, well actually no I couldn''t he is one of our bloody best players. [/quote] No he isn''t, a few decent crosses but zero pace and couldn''t beat his man, would rather have a decent CB and striker for the money
  3. [quote user="Louis"]It is true that there are things Gunn has to learn from last night, but the poor defending was partly a result of him inheriting a squad with a small number of defenders posessing limited quality. Whoever would have taken over, it would have been a problem for him. If Purse signs, it will add some quality to the back four. I''m not saying Gunn is blameless for dropping two points last night - he certainly isn''t - but there is a bigger picture. Given the state of the club and the squad he has just as much chance of keeping us up as a more experienced manager would have done.[/quote] Spot on...regardless of substitutions / tactics etc what''s cost us is a 50 yard diagonal ball in to the box that Grounds has managed to get himself nowhere near, 99 times out of 100 a CB heads that away. Purse plus a big man up front is essential.
  4. [quote user="The Butler"] We can use the money from the sale of Eventguard to buy a 31 year old defender that Cardif don''t want. So they can use our money to help them buy Ched. Yep seems like good business again!! Do they run business courses along with everything else they do at Carrow road? [/quote] As opposed to the Peter Ridsdale financial management approach?
  5. [quote user="TIL 1010"][quote user="still holding out for new heroes"][quote user="TIL 1010"] At last,it might have taken a while but didn''t you just know that the anti NCISA suspects would crawl out of the woodwork. A bit rich that Wizard comments on a remark about "how serious do you want to be taken?" As for Yellow, where else in this day and age apart from hiding behind a laptop could you get away with making such outright sexist remarks.   [/quote] John why is it that you only ever respond towards the completely negative posters. When I and others raise genuine questions for the NCISA in a respectful and in my opinion fair manner no response is ever forthcoming...are yourself and the NCISA above any questioning / constructive criticism at all? [/quote] As i have said on numerous threads and posts contact me J.TILSON@SKY.COM and i am more than happy to enter into dialogue. Maybe a drink before or after the game tomorrow.Name the time and place from about 5pm onwards. [/quote] Thanks for the offer John, unfortunately none of the so and so''s at work will do my late shift for me, so I can''t make tonight''s game...I''ve tried the New Dawn for the club speech but it''s lost on the West Ham / Fulham types I work with...will take you up on the offer at a later game..
  6.   :o) thanks for your reply, whilst personally I''d disagree with nearly all your points I understand the reasoning behind them all. I''d be happy to disagree over a pint sometime rather than calling you names on a message board ;) My main concern is not that the NCISA changes it''s approach, or that they even share my views on any issue (I can''t really complain not being a member of NCISA can I), but simply that they use the summer to take stock and review all of the above and what the stance would they take should we lurch to yet another crisis next season, if they/you (sorry getting myself confused here) carry out such a review and still decide given the feeling of your members and wider supporters to carry on with the existing ethos/approach that''s fair enough in my opinion. Mr Norwich City Mick Dennis on the SCG (shudder)....free tickets and prawn sandwiches for journos, the plebs to pay double

  8.   I agree with most of that :o) but I would raise a couple of points 1. in a government whilst there may be a number of of different view across a broad spectrum, those elected to lead a party/government are done so to make difficult decision on behalf of those they represent, not simply take a concensus view on each and every issue. Whilst that would be true democracy no decision would ever be reached, My concern re the NCISA is that with thoroughly good intentions to represent all it''s members, because of this it ends up representing none of it''s members views from concern of isolating others. 2. as I said previously I believe now is the time to get wholeheartedly behind the club as Championship survival is all that matter in the short term, but I do believe the NCISA need to think ahead regarding next season and indeed beyond should we end up back to square one ( i''m not saying what stance they should take that''s for their board and members to decide). Safety this season does not equate to all the problems having gone away as fans of Leicester could testify to.
  9. an odious man playing a tedious sport, quite frankly who cares
  10. [quote user="Kathy"][quote user="peartreeproductions"][quote user="TIL 1010"][quote user="Delia S. Tickers"] [quote user="TIL 1010"]Blimey three hours has passed and no sign of Wiz.[/quote] He sent his apprentice though....   [/quote] Looks like some people wanted us to release an anti Board statement so we could then be accused of rocking the boat at this crucial time.I also notice that the anti NCISA brigade still want us to fight their battles for them so you just cannot please everybody. For goodness sake can we just stop this bickering and concentrate on the job in hand which is Championship safety.   [/quote] I think that all of the bickering and NCISA anti-sentiment is exaccerbated by NCISA members posting their opinions on a public forum.  Do you find sports desk pete posting on here something to the contrary of his employers?  Or Neil Doncaster saying how personally he thinks that Gunny is a bad appointment? Unfortunately when you are part of an organisation you have to be seen to tow the party line.  You also have to rise above any flaming (which I hope you will understand this isnt). [/quote]   I''m sorry but I dont agree with that at all. I am perfectly entitled to come on here and post my opinions just the same as you are. I could easily make up some id to hide who I am but chose not to and that shouldnt bar me from saying what I think. Sorry if you dont like it but thats too bad. [/quote] Kathy you''re quite right in that you have every right to voice your opinion. The problem is I think I understand yourself, John''s, Smudger''s and other NCISA members who post on here personal views regarding the club/previous manager, however I have know idea what the NCISA thinks, as an organisation it doesn''t seem to have much of a view on anything regarding the club, and appears to really not know what time of organisation it want''s to be anymore. John is quite right in saying now is not the time for further unrest and it''s time to get behind the club, but I would humbly suggest that in the summer the NCISA review the direction it wishes to go in the future (where for instance will it stand if things get worse into next season for example; should it continue to sponsor the assistant manager, is being a board member in the NCISA appropriate to being a member of the SCG, is it truly independent enough from the club, are all things I believe it should be asking itself in less turbulent times). This isn''t a dig at yourselves (though I''m sure the ever prickly Mr Tilson will take it as such) you give up a lot of your own time and do lots of good work for charity the club etc but in a time when many wanted the NCISA to be a force for change as it was at it''s conception, it wasn''t willing or able to be so.

  12. he does have a strong opinion he''s just too much of a nice guy to express it...
  13. looks like someones got too much time on their hands whilst ''The Star'' focusses on celebrity Big Brother
  14. Robson, Keane, Calderwood (Colin), Hoddle, Reid....which is probably the shortlist knowing my luck
  15. judging by 99.9% of the posts on here then No, the Norwich puppetman would probably do a better job of choosing the next boss
  16. [quote user="sheringhamcanary"]Hi new pinkun poster here.. although Bell did put in a good cross for Russels goal yesterday, Lee Croft ran up and down that wong on numerous occasions both attacking and defending. There is no chance that you could drop Croft at this time.[/quote] whatever that poor Chinese lad had done wrong I''ll never know...
  17. Bell, looks to me like his injury (op pending) is affecting him in open play, and even his set pieces have got worse over the last few weeks. Thought Crofty was superb yesterday, lack of bodies/height in the box made it difficult to find a target, but some of the runs were top drawer.
  18. Managers regardless of initial success have a limited shelf life (with extremely rare exceptions such as Ferguson), whilst some managers move on to bigger clubs (unlikely given Gunny''s history) the vast majority end in being sacked (or the weasel words of mutual consent). Gunny is a genuine City legend, part of the clubs and indeed the City''s lifeblood and I for one do not want him ever put into a position (be it 1, 2, 5 years time) where the fans of this club want (or worse still chant/protest) for him out. Yesterday''s win is a fitting addition to the Bryan Gunn story and there it should end.
  19. [quote user="AndyJR"]Doe''nt work for me - just says ''ready'' and when I press play, there appears to be no content.  [:(] [/quote]   Same for me everything I try fails...link seems to be broken
  20. [quote user="Camuldonum"][quote user="Ciderkidd"][quote user="Camuldonum"] [quote user="BarclayChuck"]This may be a stupid question but have the media tried to speak to Roeder about his thoughts on getting the boot? Usually when a manager leaves there''s some sort of statement but I haven''t seen one anywhere? Would be interesting to hear his last words.[/quote] He may have a confidentiality agreement with City, I don''t know.  We haven''t spoken to him but we did speak with Mrs R.  Apparently he is going  North because his Mother is unwell.  We''ve got some questions lined up if he does want to talk. [;)] [/quote] Oh, is she okay? Mick Dennis made her seem like she was very scared. [/quote] She''s not "over the moon" but she''ll survive.  She is very protective of him so, like most people, I am pretty sure she takes a lot of it personally.  I know not many like her husband[:|] but I''m sure you would all like her.  She is really nice. [/quote] maybe she should have given the team talks
  21. Cureton appears to have the emotional fraility of a 13 year old girl....arm round the shoulder treatment may do the trick
