  1. As expected, majority on here seem to disagree.

    Whilst i wouldn''t go as far as calling any binners it does surprise me the glee some seem to take in our current predicament.

    As unlikely as a win will be, it is still possible and i still believe that the team and hughton can do it

    On the ball city !
  2. I know I will get shot down for this and that there is a chance this post will get brought up again after the game (by many posters on here who seem to get more out of gloating over a loss than us actually winning!)

    But..... I just have a feeling that the Arsenal game could throw up a surprise results.

    Ironically, I think the players might benefit from being in a game where nothing is expected of them. Most will have us down to lose and therefore will be no pressure.

    Also, despite our lack of losses at home and failure to win away (other than Swansea) , i think with a vocal away support and no additional crowd tension it might work in our favour.

    Going for a 2-1 away victory with us getting the winner in 80th.

    Ok, I may be a dreamer, but I am not the only one (or am I??)

    Villa On The Attack

    It is interesting how some still regard Lambert as the messiah whilst hughton is the devil.

    Don''t get me wrong, i loved Lambert whilst he was here but I do doubt why some people are so adamant we would be better off if he was still here.

    I am not sure if on paper our squad is any better than villas and for all the talk of Lamberts great motivating skills and great substitutions they are in the bottom 3 and have less points than us.

    Perhaps the grass isn''t always greener?!?

    That ten game run

    I really don''t want to be over negative but like most fans i am now genuinely worried about how this season will end.

    I am just wondering what people''s opinion is on how we were able to go on such a great run and what is missing now?

    Surely it can''t just be Ruddy?!?

    More importantly, what can we do to get that magic back for the remaining games??

    Sunderland v Man. U.

    It''s one of the downsides of our current position that i end up supporting the likes of Man U etc.

    Would always normally support the under dogs or smaller team.

    Oh well. Come on Man U!

    Best Non UK Player?

    Am I the only person who liked Cedric Anselin?!?

    Even I don''t really know why but just always seemed a whole hearted decent player, also use to enjoy singing his name.

    Funny how some players just appeal to certain fans

    It's official!

    Have to say i don''t know a great deal about him as a player but goal scoring record is excellent.

    Most importantly, it is a statement of intent from the club that we are going to compete with other premier league clubs and not just settle for cheaper players who wil have to, in reality, play beyond their ability but instead make quality acquisitions.

    I know some are querying the fee but thats relatively cheap for a quality international striker. This is especially true if other articles are true that he was being monitored by spurs, Man U etc and that he apparently had an €18m release clause so that would have been minimum they would have expected if they weren''t in financial trouble. The fact we have done deal now so they can pay wages suggests McNally has been typically ruthless to secure the best deal for ncfc.

    Know its wrong but i see it as good news, cant be injured this game and banned for next.

    V selfish but he is so important to us we need him fit for rest of season

    Van Wolfswinkel reportedly joining

    Would presume if it is sorted now and we pay £3m up front the club will also take out an insurance policy in case anyhting happens before the summer
  10. Brilliant 2nd half performance, lads should be proud of that performance.

    Credit to Hughton as well both for the original selcetion as we had Sunderland on the ropes. Also for bringing in Lee Camp a move that is now up there with the original buying of Bunn.

    Perhaps sometimes a conservative approach isn''t such a bad thing!!!
  11. Bunn handball debateable but def not sending off.. As already said Graham was a few yards offside so Bassong should have been able to catch the ball as linesman should have given us the offside.

    Worse thing is at 1-0 up we had the game under total control

    Lets hope we come out with some passion and give it a go, but its going to be a tough ask

    Goal Music.

    think for the first time ever there may be a 100% agreement from everyone on here that we would ALL love to hear more of the goal music over next few home games!!!!

    Match thread v Saints.

    whilst snoddy may be having a mare, he is just about the only player i have faith in doing something special in a game at the moment so hoping he will turn it around 2nd half

    Must admit I am becoming concerned about Holt, could be time to give Bechhio a run out. But it should be a few games so he gets a real chance, will also remind Holt he must fight for a place and its not guaranteed

    Ricardo's report v Everton

    seems wrong to feel emotional about a cat that I dont even know but we have all enjoyed your reports Ricardo and the references to snowy always gave it that personal feel.

    Glad to see that the team came up trumps with a fitting result today

    all the best

    Unbeaten Run

    strange how stats can change with one result. Now in pre match no one can quote the havent won in 10 and as you rightly say, unbeaten in 4 which includes relatively big and established teams like Newcastle and Everton it sounds very good

    Bring on Man u!!!

    Oh no not Howson

    what a great positive reaction from a "fan"

    Just get behind the players amd the team
  17. Must admit I do see this as a bit strange. Recent results suggest time would be better spent on the training ground with shooting, crossing, and free kick practice.

    I know they can still do this but a lot of time will be spent training and it smacks of a works outing.

    Hopefully will at least build team spirit and allow them to come back fired up again.

    Although i do seem to recalll the idiot Roeder did a similar thing at this time of year and it led to a complete loss of form and we plummeted down the league!?!?

    [quote user="ron obvious"]I thought today'' game was going to be the most important game of our season?[/quote]

    great minds think a like!
  19. rock bus


    thought todays game was meant to be the most important game of the season!?!?

    Agree we need a win soon, but why dont we try to be positive - we are now 2 games undefeated!! that constitutes an unbeaten run :)
  20. I think the guy is a legend

    I know you can be cynical about how he doesnt need the money and due to the good PR it will improve brand Beckham and make him even more money etc etc

    But end of the day a kids home will get a load of money which is a great thing.

    Also compare his actions to all the mercaneries going to QPR from better clubs just for the cash

    Official Norwich vs Spurs Match Thread

    Spurs are a good team and Bale world class so no shame in getting a draw.

    Lets all just sit back and enjoy a good performance rather than the normal barrage of too negative criticsm

    Hopefully buy a quality striker tomorrow and we will be fine

  22. good to see celtic winning and hooper not scoring

    might make them think they could actually do without him?!?

    Team for tonight

    morison not on bench, still injured or ar leeds?
  24. rock bus


    Feel a bit sorry for Morison - just hasnt worked out for him here and the fans have just never really taken to him.

    I would not be surprised if he signs for Leeds and goes on to prove lots of the doubters here wrong.

    Sometimes players and clubs just seem to fit and sometimes for no apparent reason it just doesnt work

    Good luck to him and hope deal works out well for all in the long run

    Kei Kamara Signs On Loan

    Seems a bit strange his loan ends before the season actually finishes?!?

    IF (and for me at moment it''s a big if) he is a brilliant success in the premier league and becomes our star player BUT we still need a win in those last two games, his loss could have a big impact on the morale of the team and us supporters

    Anyhow for now wish him all the best and hope he is a huge success and we cruise to premiership safety with plenty of games to spare!
