  1. Where has it been reported that Lotus may withdraw their sponsorship? MD Matt Windle sounded pretty buoyant about the NCFC/Lotus marketing alignment when he spoke at a business event I attended at CR a year or so ago.(A lot could change since then of course). If true, are we talking shirt sponsorship, or the 'LTC' (Lotus Training Centre) too?
  2. I used to visit the Allcock family home when I was a teenager; I played football for Thorpe St Andrew school & also St John's with his son Peter. I fondly remember Peter & I playing Led Zeppelin albums at high volume - figured Terry might tell us to knock it down a notch, however he never did! He got a me a ticket for Wembley '73 too - I'm hugely grateful for that experience. Lovely family - RIP Terry.
  3. I've lived in both these locations - he could do a lot worse! 'Thorpe End Garden Village' is particularly nice however (imho) it lacks soul. Had a few NCFC players as neighbours when I was there in the '90's...
  4. Dean Smith came with a decent reputation?
  5. Guilherme Montóia is a LB - aged 20 & halfway through his 2-year contract.
  6. Ginger Pele's long diagonal balls to Darren Huckerby also spring to mind! I suspect JHT will be seeking younger CB's who are masters of their craft playing accurately and fast on the floor...
  7. Absolutely, Chris is the stand-out replacement...
  8. That's often the case isn't it? The bookies odds mean next to nothing - it's a complete circus!
  9. Same here initially @Wroxham Bridge, however I restarted the process, updated the basket & it allowed me to purchase the seat next to me. (I'd already bought 3 for our regular ST places).
  10. With advice from employment law specialists, NCFC will have decided by midday Tuesday how DW should best proceed. Given the club's tolerance with Flynn Clarke, I expect they'll remain congruent and support Shane Duffy in a similar manner...
  11. An unconvincing 1-1 and we depart unsure whether we've got what it takes to join Ipswich in the top league...
  12. Any excuse to watch this back! I can see myself in the crowd waving a blow-up canary celebrating Russ's goal #4 with my son. What a sensational night...
  13. I've always rated McClean highly. Lots of good points already made on this post; yes he has a mistake in him most games, likewise Nunez & Sara. Kenny is a class apart at Championship level & an excellent back-up utility player in the Premier League should that occur next season. As it stands, he's getting my POTS vote....
  14. Precisely this! Emotionally, Sainz is the weakest link in the Norwich team. Ipswich & the rest of the Championship teams will targeting him even more now. As would we, if he was playing against us!
  15. Should Leeds get promoted, my hunch is DF would seek an upgrade on Patrick Bamford...
  16. Where was that pic taken? Great shot to get Knapper, Delia, Michael & Attanasio Snr in one frame!
  17. I accept DW is a nice guy doing his best. He deserves to be given a shot at getting to the play-offs (although it's frustrating to watch some rather odd coaching decisions being made!). He may scrape to position #6, however I doubt he'd be allowed to coach Norwich in the top league should a proverbial miracle happen. Either way, a talented young coach like Carlos Cuesta at Arsenal is probably being lined up for next season...
  18. I've zero awareness of anything Kyle Walker may have done. tbh, I quite like it that way!...
  19. Andrew Surman has recently joined as u-18's Assistant Coach too (I'm connected with Russ on LinkedIn - saw it announced on there).
  20. Tzolis back to feed Van Hoojdonk please....
  21. Leeds 1-2 Norwich. The home side go down to 10 men in this one... (Trainee) Psychic Mustard.
  22. I thought the same; telepathic connection between Rowe & Sargent on that occasion. Looked so straightforward - top performers tend to make things look easy don't they? When he first arrived, I thought Sarge was no more than a League One player, gotta say I'm delighted to see him doing well!
  23. No to Cooper. Nowhere near inspirational enough. He looks like he's struggling to stay awake...
  24. At the 1-1 game where Max Aarons made his debut I took my (then 13 y/o) with me. Familiar with that area from business trips, we parked near the Ranelagh Road roundabout & walked from the car wearing yellow shirts. No police presence whatsoever on the mile or so walk to the stadium. Comments were getting increasingly spicy from supporters in blue, especially when we walked past home fans queuing to enter at the Sir Bobby Robson end. Still no police presence - not one! It was only when we went around the corner we found ourselves 'the wrong side' of the police cordon. They quickly ushered us through to join the away section & we finally felt safe. Tbh, I was naive & misjudged the potential consequences that day. Lesson learned.
