  1. This place is on Bowthorpe Industrial Estate and the owner is a great bloke http://www.lwrr.co.uk/  and looking at the site the rates and equipment look pretty good as well.
  2. The Old Red Lion St Johns St Angel Underground turn left, and along 100 yards. First pub you come to... they will be showing it. As the owner is a norwich supporter. It''s got traditioinal red interior with bar running along the left side.
  3. How many times?   Ashton was not available from Crewe in the summer before the premier season. Crewe wanted to establish themselves in the division before he was sold. We bought him in January when they thought they were relatively safe, but nearly got it wrong when they only just stayed up the last day of the season. We were the only Premier side interested in taking a gamble on him and Crewe relented and let him come to us. If he had been available that summer then the club would have bought him then!
  4. R.I.P Graham. My thoughts are with your family on this sad day. A true legend and a gentleman.
  5. Well to start with Ashton wasn''t available at the beginning of the season. Crewe were not willing to sell him to anybody until they were established in the division. They were pretty much safe in January and that''s why they sold him to us, they plummeted after his sale and only escaped relegation on the last day of the season. We were the only club willing to take a chance on him in the January transfer window, hence we got him. Hope this clears it up?
  6. I have sent you a PM mate. I have some offcuts of material I could give you which is ideal for modelling. I give it away to about 30 schools in this area. You can check out the properties here www.emkayplastics.co.uk
  7. I would suggest you read it again temp!   "We looked back through the 47-year history of the Cup to work out if it was United or City who came out on top. We were surprised with the results but looking back on the last few years, it''s always been a case of expect the unexpected with the Carling Cup - hopefully it''s a good omen for this season''s competition." The top five most successful sides are West Ham United, Norwich City, Manchester City, Manchester United and Leeds United, with Hereford United at the bottom of the pile.
  8. Rumours have it that there will be a surprise as well.
  9. Shouldn''t read too much into it. His girlfriend used to be a hostess in Mercy, so she has probably got friends and family here. As a matter of fact he was in Mercy VIP on Saturday night, probably just came back for a week as he''s injured and for her to come and see her friends etc.
  10. [quote user="Kathy"]I would vote for Lil Kemp. She has been following Norwich home and away for as long as I''ve been going and that started in the mid-sixties. She must be eighty plus now but she''still there rain or shine.[/quote]   Saw Lil in the Rosary Tavern last night, as she is always in pre and post match (plus she does the cleaning in the pub after match days). I spoke to her about this message board, and that she had been mentioned as being "Mrs Norwich", she was very proud. Her grandson should be showing her this thread today at some point. She also showed me an internet printout of a Leeds site with her on it http://leedsunited.rivals.net/default.asp?sid=888&p=2&stid=8437342
  11. Age 47 Company Director www.emkayplastics.co.uk Also own a Limo Company (see advert on FONCY page of the programme), have also just bought the Rosary Tavern on Rosary Road www.rosarytavern.com (website being updated at the mo), you can catch me behind the bar Tuesday evenings and matchdays. First game back in 72/73 season against West Ham, been hooked ever since. Only a member as I have my two little girls on Saturdays, but do every midweek/Sunday game home or away. Take my girls now and then to a game, and they are gradually getting round to supporting city. Claim to fame. I was the guy who faced down the "worthy in" cowboy on Anglia TV last year, and was also spokesperson for Worthy out.
  12. Apparently the Reindeer on Dereham Road is doing an all you can eat brekkie buffet for £5.50 pre game. I''m going to the Rose on Queens Road where I''m sure there will be food as well.
  13. As someone has done this on another forum thought I''d put it on here as well. What''s your best memories of bygone Derby days? Mine. 1976-1977 away in s(umsville Tuesday 15th February 77 (had to look it up). Was still at Fakenham Grammar School and we had asked the teachers to get a minibus to the game, but alas to no avail! So me and my mate decided to bunk off and hitch to the game from Fakenham. Went off to school as normal in school uniform (to fool our parents), got changed into other clothes and out came the silk scarves for around our wrists! Got one lift from Fakenham to Norwich, walked across Norwich (via the market for chips) then one lift to s(umsville. We got there about 12.30 for an evening kick off! Two 16yr olds in s(umsville, pooing ourselves as we were trying to avoid the bands of neanderthals roaming the streets. Only got better about 5ish when City started to arrive, got involved with some older lads, trashed a pub and made our way to the game. Me and my mate didn''t have tickets so ended up in the Cobbold stand (I think) with the binners. At half time an announcement came on the tannoy "would Paul M... and Robert N..... please meet their parents after the game at the players entrance" The school had phoned up asking why we weren''t at school and everybody had put 2 and 2 together correctly. We wre pooing ourselves and to make matters worse we got spanked 5 nil, then we got sussed by the binners and ended up having to fight our way out of the stand. Then got a good kicking from my dad when I got home! Plus we had to do detentions for every lesson we missed. That''s probably why this one sticks out in my mind!
  14. HAve you tried asking on here?   http://www.capitalcanaries.com/
  15. Earnie fillets Piswich defence Huckerby skated round the left back, leaving him floundering in his hake. He plaiced the ball perfectly for Earnshaw, who eelsily evaded his sharker and made the net bulge. "It''s salmon home, it''s salmon home" sang the away fans, who were packed into Poorman Road like sardines.
  16. I don''t think he has, and neither does PG if these comments are anything to go by? Meanwhile, Grant also backed Ryan Jarvis to improve after handing him a start on the left wing before moving him inside behind Robert Earnshaw and Youssef Safri was sacrificed. “I thought he started the game and didn''t maybe understand what we wanted him to do in that position and I thought that caused us problems early in the game,” Grant said. “That''s why I had to balance it off and put young (Robert) Eagle out there who''s done ever so well. I moved Ryan in behind where I know he''s comfortable and where I know he can play. “He did better in there. People call that the ''Jolly'' role, but not for me it''s not and he''s got to work extremely hard to get on the ball and he''s got to do that better. “In periods in the game he did it, then rested, and there''s no rest in this game and no rest in this team. He''ll get better at it. He understands that now. “But I was disappointed I had to sacrifice Youssef for that, but that''s football. You''ve got to get on with it.” Hopefully Ryan will take these comments on board and try and improve as a player.
  17. To the right of the goal as we looked, and about 2/3rds of the way up. Holty was there as him and XXL have become friends over the years, no other reason than that.
  18. Walked into the stand and sat down. Then realised who was sitting in front of me! Our very own XXL16, with a very special guest, none other than Gary Holt! Holty looked like he was having a good time, especially when we started singing he''s here, he''s there, he''s every f***ing where Gary Holt Gary Holt. He was quite happy to sign photo''s and have his picture taken with anyone who asked him.
  19. You could try contacting him through his website   http://www.icons.com/eadie/   Don''t know how often he looks at it though!
  20. [quote user="paul williams"] I work with a derby fan and he used to go on how great camp was then last season he started to lose confidence and kept letting in stupid goals and flapping at the ball. He doesn''t command his area and likes to stay on his goal line but whats saying a new coach and a new club can''t change him into a better player. Okay for cover but needs to put in a lot of work to be worth signing permanently. [/quote]   For two seasons he was a key player and linked with big money moves to the Premiership. Then Derby sacked the goalkeeping coach replaced him with a muppet (allegedly) and Camp''s form and confidence suffered - not helped by playing behind a dreadful defence (Marc Edworthy apart). He is a good keeper and with the right coaching will improve.
  21. What, Worthy bald, you  mean he could end up as attractive as me?  Then again, maybe not.....
  22. How come Billy Connolly played for USA? I thought he was Scottish, or does he qualify, because he has an American wife?
  23. Aaah! Those were the days! Trevor Hockey, Graham Paddon and a few others who''s names escape me. The "bring back the beards" campaign starts here.
  24. You''ve all forgotten something important about transfers Worthy found out about Bidnapper and he now uses it for all his transfer dealings. That''s how we got Earnie at the last moment: he was just about to resign himself to another six months on the bench when POW!! Worthy''s Bidnapper deadline expired, the winning bid of 2.405m and 51p (just in case) was emailed through and the opposition had no time to respond. He''ll have done exactly the same, before heading off with his lilo, Jilly Cooper novels and suncream. He''s spent ages tapping all the details in. Then he relaxes by the pool, letting Bidnapper take care of all that stressful transfer activity. It also enables him to have a good laugh at our expense as we all go mad about the lack of activity. "Ha ha I''ve got the sityouayshun well under controal notmean. Let''s just double check the bids ... £300,005.51 for Russell Perrett from Luton, big strong boy, do a job for us somewhere in defence; £450,009.51 for Giles Barnes, he''s not getting much of a look-in at Derby, sure we could bring him along, very versatile notmean; and £600,599.51 for Barry Hayles from Millwall, bit pricey but you have to pay for experience notmean, and I love buying strikers. There we are - £1.5m spent, team strengthened throughout, no fancy dans or bigname bigheads, all bids set to be made at 10pm on last day of the transfer window, job done game on turning corner notmean."
