  1. I like it. The more publicity this old song get''s, the better. The full version is, and always will be, a ''hairs up on the back of the neck'' experience. Your version has enhanced and not diminished this.
  2. I think it'' s bloody great personally. The current squad is the first one to have the siege mentality kind of bond since the likes of the Mackay/ Roberts/ Mulryne/ Mcveigh era of ten years ago.   The more male bonding, the better they play together in my experience. Every great team of the past (all teams) socialised together as well as worked together. Particularly important when young men are a long way from their home.   Brilliant to see newer players like Snodgrass pulled into the social scene of the club by the captain and his group of friends. I often get a warm feeling from Twitter feeds that there is a genuine affection for kind of club spirit that seems to run through the place. I would say that GH seems to be pivotal in the social scene organisation and to me this is a duty that more club captain''s should take seriously. I''m sure Snoddy, Bassong, Turner and others have absolutely no regrets about coming over here because of the good spirit. It can only help feel grounded and more at home.  It negates the chance of the Collocini situation occuring here when players are brought in and immediately maden to feel an important part of a group.     Whatever may be said about Lambert, it is fairly well known that he had a strict ''fines'' system that undoubtedly caused some great dressing room banter. The current regime and legacy players have taken this onward and upward. Like any team there will always be groups of players that naturally socialise together but I get the feeling that the overall sense of ''team'' at the club is king and they have a very real sense of identity and group as a whole.   The fact that we have not had anyone leave the club for years unless for footballing reason''s they were now surplus to requirements, speaks volumes for the club.   It would be good if a player or staff would come on here and endorse this opinion. I won''t hold my breath though. ;)
  3. Ha haaa!! Ahhh. The fickle numpties exposed for all to see. The lesson......don''t react like a school kid. Goldfish syndrome on here is always rife but this thread is living proof. Some out there need to try and balance the last performance with at least the recent history before it and even better....the 110 years before that. We always lose at Craven Cottage in recent history and some of them actually wrote ''Hughton Out''. I would say unbelieveable......but there it is.....it actually happened. No doubt those guilty will conveniently forget this too.   Well done for digging this out.
  4. Can''t say too much but I am in the process of making a NCFC related present for someone for a top fan for Christmas and ideally I am after the beautiful font that they use on the gates of the club.   Does anyone amongst you ''mega-fans'' know what it''s called or where I can get/ buy it. Coming up with nothing currently on font searches but perhaps it''s not unique to the club. It would just finish off the item I have to present to a tee and time is now of the essence. You''ll all know it, but here''s a reminder (apologies but only image I could find was from the dirty ''Green''un): http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?um=1&hl=en&sa=N&tbo=d&qscrl=1&rlz=1T4SUNC_enGB368GB368&biw=1311&bih=543&tbm=isch&tbnid=Wkk0DeEfp-ApuM:&imgrefurl=http://www.greenun24.co.uk/non-league/suffolk_club_s_link_with_norwich_city_1_1533963&docid=f_D1sTMIcLfI_M&imgurl=http://www.greenun24.co.uk/polopoly_fs/jb_1_ncfc_badge_carrow_1_1533954!image/3215578712.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_630/3215578712.jpg&w=630&h=883&ei=TW_MUKiqH4fV0QXju4DQDg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=312&sig=114724753069892778878&page=1&tbnh=143&tbnw=111&start=0&ndsp=19&ved=1t:429,r:2,s:0,i:94&tx=42&ty=45   If anyone can help it would be most appreciated. Oh yeah & OTBC against The Lactics today!
  5. Swansea 3 Norwich 4 was what I was about to say....honestly ;)
  6. Has there ever been a better moment to say.........Don''t drink and post!   By the way, interesting that you think the term sheep sh*gger is even remotely as offensive as the antiquated crap that was obviously directed at Bassong today. Boring and disgusting as it is, it doesn''t quite go hand in hand with the hundred of years of historical oppression, slavery and mistreatment of various coloured races throughout human history. Go to bed and sleep it off.
  7. Waheeeeey! The stadium debate is back. It''s a white hole again! http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=GB&hl=en-GB&v=TxWN8AhNER0 
  8. Waheeeeeyyyyyyyy! Another stadium expansion thread. It must have been at least five minutes since the last one. The white hole returns: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxWN8AhNER0
  9. I thought they made Utd look alot better than they actually were. Sure we had more chances sequentially that weren''t shown and they didn''t show enough of the game in general. We had a sequence of something around 30 passes that was good to watch but to be honest didn''t expect even the level of respect they did show us for once.
  10. 4th in prem on the conventional ''last 6 played'' form table. Win your homes, draw your always is a nice formula for success. Really chuffed with the turnaround. Great showing by the players and manager. Anyone moaning about the fact that it''s not as pretty or attacking as ''Lambert'' football needs to take a good look in the mirror. It''s organised, methodical and was most definitely required to stop the rot that quite honestly had already crept in by the last third of last season. Could it be that whilst Lambert was the perfect manager to ''bust'' us out of league one and the championship, that the board have now employed the perfect manager to ''stick'' us in the top flight for the forseeable?   I don''t buy this ''lucky'' trolling cr*p I''ve seen on a thread or two on here today. You don''t getting lucky doing over 3 top teams at home in a month. They weren''t all having off days. We just didn''t let any of them play their natural game. Great organisation, good counter attack. We could have finished alot more chances I reckon but hopefully that will come to.   Brilliant weekend. Proud to be NCFC. OTBC.   Form here: http://www.premierleague.com/en-gb/matchday/form-guide.html?tableView=total
  11. like a bad smell, another goal music thread stinks the place out. Our play is the problem currently, not the goal music that makes us a laughing stock. Conceding 5 at home is a whole lot more embarrassing. Leave the goal music out of it.   The last two weeks I''ve realised what kind of real reactive crap that get''s written on this forum. I give up on it, I really do.
  12. Haa haaaaa!   You wish we had sold one of our best ever strikers! Yeah.....sure! We should have sold Ruddy too. He was pretty good last season too. David Fox.......yeah......we should have sold him too.......he can play a bit. Maybe Pilkington should have went as well. We could have taken all those millions and banked ''em nicely.   God forgive Holty for having a lean spell. I wonder if you''ll be celebrating next time he knocks one in for us or maybe still wishing he was gone. Hang on a minute, you probably wouldn''t celebrate anyway unless Ipswich score. So thinking about it, who cares what you ''think''.
  13. You should really be concentrating on the imminent Jewell sacking, Bor. Not that it wll save your illustrious friends from the trapdoor, Evans inevitable tug on the plug and subsequent Pompey style oblivion beckoning in the next couple of years. I''m sure we will weep ourselves to sleep at the thought of never playing another EA derby......................................................................................NOT!
  14. 1) Fleck 2) Holt 3) Iwan   Or possibly the other way around.........
  15. An injury free Holt will still get 10 plus goals this season. I will gleefully draw attention to this tastelessly titled post when this has happened.
