    Luke Woolfenden

    Some of them reckon he's worth anything up to 30 million..... they've been away from the top a long time.

    *IF* we go down...

    .... and they'll lose Bielsa.

    Duda signed

    He'll want to impress, so other Clubs come in for him in the summer. Could work in our favour but he's got a lot of work to do.

    Exeter City 2-1 Binners

    I'd say there was Lidl chance of that

    Heise Departs

    Wasn't he brought in as back up to Jamal? He has been replaced by a better option. So, not a poor signing at all.

    Adam Idah

    We don't want him impressing at OT next week, the January window is still open!

    Bad News

    April 1st?....

    Exeter City 2-1 Binners

    It's tragic that 'everyone's 2nd favourite Club' should find itself in such decline.

    Adam Idah = Global Superstar

    The kid is 18, he's had a great day, but he isn't a superstar........ yet

    Not unlucky. Not clever.

    Don't know what the argument is here, I've supported Norwich for 50 years, back then we were a lower Division 1 upper Division 2 side and apart from the odd spell where we've overachieved/underachieved we're pretty much in the same place. The game itself has changed though, back then we looked up to giants like Sunderland, Forest, Derby, Wednesday, Coventry, Leeds, Stoke, West Brom and that lot down the road. The Teams that have overtaken us from those days include Watford, Brighton, Bournemouth, Palace and Villa who'd had some time in Division 3. All of which have mega rich owners ploughing huge sums in to keep them competitive. Remaining largely competitive when the rest have changed their business model to stay ahead of us should be acknowledged for the achievement that it is.

    How good is Emi?

    Thing is Wacky, when we sold Madison, we couldn't see where the goals would come from. 12 months later, we'd been promoted, were raving about Emi and, despite the appreciation we all have for Madison were in awe of Buendia. .... in other words, there's always another talent out there, I just hope Webber has found him.

    Model / Plan

    I think we're aiming to be a top 26 side on a regular basis, or something like that...... so far so good.
  13. I don't know if this has been mentioned, but apparently agent Lambert has signed a 5 (five!) Year contract. Thoughts?

    1,138 days...

    Mentioned on TWTD though, it's given them something to celebrate as their 'guaranteed' promotion continues to unravel.

    Going Down

    Not sure you've read the script, Tottenham have been linked with Aarons according to the press nearly all season. Godfrey has been linked to a whole host of big Clubs, some abroad, playing in the Champions League.... .... 'and the prices paid' will reflect how much Webber is willing to accept.

    Wycombe Ipswich

    In all seriousness JUBS, if you're not promoted this season, you could be down there a long time. As it stands, the only thing going up, is the debt.

    Your best NCFC memory of the decade

    Despite living in NZ and missing entire seasons, I was at Portsmouth to see us promoted, saw us win at Tottenham and Man City, the 3-2 against Derby and saw 2 strikers score hat-tricks in the same game against Scunthorpe. Far from dull...... Oh, and happy new year!!!!!!!!

    Max Aarons 45mil

    I think Kevin Reeves was only the second £1 million pound player after Trevor Francis..... we built a new stand out of the proceeds.

    So, can we do it? The great escape!

    Love this, interesting that some haven't contributed, I'm hoping that we can make a fight of it. We've been relegated 8 times in my lifetime, for different reasons. I don't mind being outclassed given the financial constraints. I understand that sometimes we'll lose a star player or Manager which derails our season. Injuries to Wes and Timm could have seen us survive at key points in a season. What I have trouble dealing with is the sides who clearly had the ability but for whatever reason couldn't or wouldn't perform. I don't think that is happening this season, if we ultimately fail it won't be for the want of trying.

    Liverpool VAR

    Nail, head, I've been saying it for years.

    Pellegrini sacked

    True Indy and around we go, Villa fans always maintain that they are a Big Club and of course they are. Just like Newcastle, they spend a fortune, yet never seem to make a sustained challenge, they may have one good season, then sink back among the strugglers. Managers come and go, huge sums are invested, yet the outcome is always the same. If Villa do go down there will be questions to answer over FFP.

    Pellegrini sacked

    Yes, he'll probably bore them to death, but as long as they survive, hey?

    Conspiracy theory #948483

    Not really, they spent a hell of a lot of money building a huge Stadium, which allows more punters through the doors, which will attract more advertising, sponsorship and for their worldwide audience, it'll look great on the tele.

    Cheer up - we could be the scum

    .... so it's worse than I thought
  25. splendidrush

    A little something to cheer you up

    Was this posted after the Spurs game? Because we didn't lose that one..... what makes you think we'll lose to Palace?
