  1. The Young One, get your bet laid off at betfair to lock in a profit. Currently available at evens there, so lay off £500 to hedge your bets. You''ll still make a £1200 profit if Adams gets it, and £500 if he doesn''t!

    Gonna be malky

    The Lennon odds are just bookies ripping people off.

    Betfair is the best guide. Nearly a thousand staked in last hour or so. Paddy power slashed odds now to evens, skybet the best out there at 11/8. Like I said stan James seem to have suspended the market- something''s happening!

    Gonna be malky

    Price being driven steadily down at betfair for malkay, now odds on! Can still get 7/4 at paddy power, so lump on there before they cut the odds! Unfortunately my PP account is frozen, but if you want a freebie lay the bet off at betfair....

    Be quick!

    Are the fans to blame for relegation?

    We as fans are absolutely to blame for relegation, but for the exact opposite reasons suggested by the OP. At any other club in the league, Hootun would have been hounded out by the fans mid way through last season after the consistent dross he served up. Humiliation after humiliation without the crowd turning on him. The board were happy so sit on their hands up until the West Brom game when finally the Hootun Out chant got a proper airing. No coincidence that he promptly gets sacked. This is how football clubs often work; it takes popular unrest to force those in power to act. Our problem is the thousands of plastic (for want of a better word) fans who tolerated the garbage on the pitch, and wouldn''t dissent. Witness for example the morons applauding players on the pitch after the latest no-show today! We are tin-pot I''m afraid, and the lack of pressure applied on the board means we have got exactly what we deserve. I love the club, but am hugely embarrassed by a huge number of our ''fans''.
  5. Calderwood and Trollope get the blame because they''re easy targets. They''re not Chris Hughton. Hughton is a really nice guy! Everyone in football likes Chrissy. Highly rated by any pundit you care to name ( except the much maligned Adrian Durham, who seemed to have his number from day one). And its rubbed off onto too many City fans. Rather than blame quiet Chris, pick on the pantomime villians stood next to him.

    The Hughton Era

    KG, that''s a great  post.

    It''s truly baffling that anyone continues to support him, or can even contemplate that he should be given ''one more game''. I''m increasingly sceptical about whether he even deserves much credit for his transfer dealings; first the Becchio fiasco, and more latterly spending £15m on strikers that he is clueless about how to deploy.

    He certainly doesn''t deserve any credit for keeping us up at the cost of 15 months of mind-numbing tedium!

    At the moment,  the atmosphere against West Ham will be poisonous, and I only hope that it doesn''t get that far. Hootun, and unfortunately the players,  will be lambasted for the smallest mistakes during that game, and that will happen because fans are angry and frustrated that the situation is being allowed to continue. And it really won''t help that fans will be at war amongst themselves, but that is entirely inevitable, given the insistance of a sizeable minority in burying their heads in the sand. I can already hear the mindless ''Hughton''s yellow army'' chant! If we go into that game without a managerial change, fans will be angry from the start. Things shouldn''t need to get this ugly to get him out. 

  7. What did Mcnally say yesterday? Must’ve missed that!

  8. Hi, looking for new outfield players for Loddon Grasshoppers Under 13s. Need to be 12, turning 13 this school year. We''re a Charter Standard club, playing in the Macron Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League, division 2. Train Tuesday evenings, matches Sunday morning/lunchtimes.

    We have a great nucleus of a team, but are short on numbers. Tear yourself away from the X-box and come and join us!

    PM me, or phone Jason on 07812 034625.

    A question for the Hughton Out brigade

    Even if we were to somehow win the next six on the bounce, I''d still want him Out. Results aren''t the be all and end all. If all i was bothered about was results, i''d pick a top six team to support. I love this club, but the 13 months of anti-football under Hughton is destroying my enthusiasm for going to games, home and away. He''s demonstrated that he''s incapable of changing his outlook on the game.

    And as for those who bleat on that ''there''s no-one better out there'', well, there''s always someone better out there, the trick is identifying them. But you can''t just stick with one man, no matter how tiresome and tedious he is, just because the next manager might turn out to be a flop as well!

  10. Sorry, where did the name calling start? What was it i said that so offended you? I''ll take it that you resorting to abuse means i''ve touched a nerve???
  11. Seems to me that all you happy clappers are in danger of turning into pantwetters yourselves....

    Oh, and why would i want to bet on Villa winning, or us getting relegated. Do you think some financial benefit would soften the blow? No real supporter would think like that. Says more about your outlook than mine i think.

  12. Ah, that''s not ire. More a case of pity, as you can''t seem to see the wood for the trees, and feel the need to bully anyone who goes against your mantra of supporting the manager.

    Interesting that Nutty admits to backing Worthy until the end as well! Even when it was clear that he''d lost the dressing room!? So is it just that you don''t like getting rid of managers and will blindly support whoever happens to be in charge? Were you unhappy that Gunn got sacked as well?

  13. Some breathtaking arrogance on this thread from all the usual Hughton apologists. Of course no-one wants Villa/Lambert to beat us. I''ve wanted Hughton out for months, but am desperate to win and stay up, because i''m a Norwich fan, regardless of how poor or boring we''ve been this season, and regardless of the fact that survival will mean Hughton staying. Are you all just expressing some kind of defence mechanism? If we lose to Villa you can turn your ire on the negative fans and blame them? The fact is Saturday''s game sees an in form team with a positive manager, visiting an out of form team with a desperately negative manager. Doesn''t take a genius to figure out which way this one will go does it? Just because i recognise what''s likely to happen, doesn''t mean i want it to happen does it?

    Am I The Only One

    Wigan will be my 9th away game this season, but i almost go there reluctantly. The fact is only once have i travelled back this season pleased by what i''ve seen. We are desperately dull to watch, and although a draw would be a decent result on Saturday, there is very little entertainment value to be had, so you can''t blame anyone who doesn''t fancy wasting another day on the road. Hopefully my luck changes this weekend, and i witness one of the few entertaining games this season.
  15. Trust me, i was at Charlton! I wouldn''t dispute that was the lowest point in our history. My argument isn''t that our team is anywhere near as poor as that side. We were a joke team that season with joke managers. But even Gunn and Roeder weren''t anywhere near as negative and tedious as Hughton. Incompetent maybe, but not as boring.

    What irritates me is the way all of you Hughton apologists are starting to make things up. Pretending that PL wasn''t as good as he was. Pretending that Hughton doesn''t have any attacking options. The tools are there, Lambert proved it. Hughton chooses not to use them.

    And yes there were some poor performances last season. It was our first year in the Premier League, of course we would take some beatings. But not once did PL send a team out with the negative mindset that we see week in, week out this season. How many entertaining games have there been this season? Five maybe? And as for the asserton that Hughton is not an inherently negative manager, that made me almost fall off the sofa! The evidence of the last 9 months suggests otherwise!
