  1. Happened just behind me. Portsmouth chap mid 50's celebrated their goal a little to enthusiastically. A Grandfather, Father and son took umbridge with this and made their way to him and exchange pleasantries. Low and behold sitting next to the these three Norwich fans was another 5 Pompey fans, who then came to their fans defence. Again pleasantries exchange, but nothing more. No mention of scampi as far I know!

    I suspect those who chanted that would argue that they were supporting the club and making their frustrations and feelings known.

    Whether that''s right or wrong or affected those players coming on is debatable. However taking your form striker off and maintaiming the same formation appears a suicidal decision by Alex and he appears a dead man walking to me.

    So....

    That decision to take off your form striker and only go one up front appears baffling. Could be the substitution that forces the change.

    Alex gave us some great times, but can only seeing this end one way and it''s time for change.
  4. Maybe Bowkett tried, but the banks would not budge?

    Certainly appears a strange omission from yesterday team without Tettey or O''Neil being available.

    Early on in the season he looked a decent defensive midfielder to me, but for whatever reasons is out of favour right now and one can only guess what they may be. More help in that area looks needed after yesterday defensive lapses when Tettey or O''Neil is unavailable.

    A new cult hero

    Excellent performance. Reminds me of a more mobile Peter Crouch.

    Should we get rid of the academy?

    Was not Roader the Newcastle Academy boss at one stage? We need an academy for sure and I believe he is the man that can kick start that again.

    It may take time, but IMHO it''s worth the effort.

    Has James Hollman really been sacked?

    Must admit that I had not heard of James Hollman before this tread, but it would appear on the surface he has been doing a very good job for a few years now.

    Now until there is official confirmation I guess we are all shooting in the dark, but a James Hollman keeper might be able to save one of those shots!

    Still if he is that talented I guess he will have many job offers and all the best to him if that''s the case. Seems a strange decision to make, but new chief and new broom I guess.

    Favourite chant heard??

    My favourite was heard walking to the ground at Bradford many years ago. If memory serves me right it goes something like this.

     “He come from sunny, sunny Spain.

    He’s Victor Segura.

    He crap and he never plays a game.

    He’s Victor Segura.

    Victor Segura, Victor Segura, 

     La.la.la.”

    Old Man Robson

    [quote user="Tom NCFC"]

    Robson can make the argument that he is one of the best ever. Look at his records

    PSV Eindhoven 57 Wins, 7 loses

    Porto 86 Wins, 11 loses

    Barcelona 38 Wins, 8 loses

    The man is a pure legend.... I recommend his autobiography too, it''s a great read

    One of the best ever I think not! Certainly his greatest achievement was taking Ipswich to FA cup and European glory. He did amazing stuff for them and so they should be proud of him.

    As England manager he was successful up to a point in getting us there, but international success is deemed on trophies won and he won none. Then again I guess he is not alone there and at least he got us there!

     

    As a club manager he did well abroad, but no European cup win to my knowledge which all true great successful football managers must win to be considered great in football terms alone.

     

    He deserved his award no doubt for his contribution to football over the years and I hold my hat off to him for that, but he is no Brian Clough in terms of achievement.   

     

  12. Why would you want to ban him? He keeps me amused. It''s a message board and if his post past the moderators, then that''s good enough for me.

    I think he was put up for adoption! Even a mother could not love that face IMHO.[:)]

    Get Crouch off

    Why? He was the one player to start that played well IMHO.
