  1. I''ve got a better idea - let''s not even think about this -we are Norwich City with over a century of tradition, shared memories and stories, not a franchise to be bought and sold.That''s worth more then selling a few shirts.
  2. After another shambles he could scarcely do worse
  3. Escape goat??? I think its Scape - sorry to be pedantic but the image of a goat fleeing its captors is a bit bizarre
  4. Reports suggest Southampton are planning a cut price bid for the unsettled Juve striker who was dropped for tonight''s Europa Cup tie. Never out of our thoughts for long - he should resist the allure of the south coast (after all Southampton is a dive) and come to his true home in Norfolk!
  5. This was our worst away defeat since 1938 and fourth worst ever. The defence ha collapsed - and that''s under a manager who puts it as top priority. Hughton is an honorable man and good bloke but another defence collapsed today; the defence of his record. I''m afraid he must go.
  6. Vaguely mentioned on Radio 5 live - presumably Norwich being beaten 7:0 is hardly worth comment. last but one on MOD?
  7. Love the Kett idea - but he met his end at Moushold I think so could perhaps be linked with a group in(inspired by the Burghers of Calais) to include Duncan Forbes and David Stringer and led by Ron Saunders who always trained the lads up there in our early days in the top flight
  8. Out for weeks with an adductor longus injury - always knew that getting such an old player would be a disaster - well rid. (That''s a lie of course) Anyway would never get the ball playing for us let alone score so we saved that fee..
  9. Yes a real legend who played a critical part in that period when we first became a top flight club. Norwich through and through. Reviving the song is a great idea.Mind you this puts into a proper perspective the daily angst we feel about the prospects of the team and the next match - some things really do matter more.
  10. August 2023: Fabio Quagliarella today made his debut for Norwich City scoring a hat trick in a 5:0 thrashing of Arsenal. In the post match interview Fabio (40) revealed he had finally been persuaded to join the Canaries following the decade long campaign on the Pinkun Message Board which now has 3,552 pages dedicated to the one time Juventus hit man. Fabio of course retired from professional football in 2019 but still looks a snip at the £15million signing on fee. Norwich manager Chris Hughton (the premiership longest serving manager) praised his striker''s efforts but insisted he would need to up his game so far as his "defensive duties" were concerned.
  11. Mark Barham anyone? product of the youth team, Milk Cup winner, capped for England. On the other hand always had a soft spot for Dale Gordon - bootiful third goal v West Ham in FA Cup quarter final reply
  12. Have people seen LF tweet? Leroy Fer ‏@LeroyFer8 2h So proud to be a Canary! The fans are already amazing!!! Looking forward to the 1st training and the PL-games! Feeling blessed. #ThankGod How about that?!
  13. Am I late with this optimistic link?http://www.fanatix.com/news/norwich-city-set-to-complete-impressive-double-deal-for-italian-and-belgian-internationals/127049/
  14. Poll of Newcastle supporters puts the Carra at 7th in the league. Lets hope we can get a league position to match next season http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/newcastle-united-fans-rate-opposition-4571124
  15. Recall a marvellous night at Grimsby''s garden shed with the Paul Mcveigh chant, the sparrow chant and one that hasn''t I think got a mention yet: Alan Brazil we all hate Alan Brazil.... Big Fat B...D That was fun.
  16. Can anyone say - if we were say to end on the same points and goal difference as a another team would goals scored come into the equation or would the two teams be separated on some other criteria?
  17. You''re right - keep the faith. I''m sorry. (Still think Wigan will wriggle clear again though)
  18. Somewhat concerned by Swansea''s early departure for summer hols. 2 points from a possible18. Might be an easy three points for Wigan which would sharpen the for those of us finding points hard to come by. Conversely WBA had a convncing win yesterday.
  19. Thought Highland''s point was well made. I know its not 1995 I know its possible to be ridiculously negative as a sort of insurance policy against disappointment - summed up in Feverpitch: Arsenal take the lead in decisive end of season match "Typical bloody Arsenal just doing it to make the ultimate disappointment all the harder to bear". Or in Clockwise: "I can cope with despair -its the hope I can''t handle". But like many others, while being glad we''ve tightened up defensively, there is a time to take a calculated risk and we CH seems fearful of trying anything other then Plan A
  20. Look I''m not a Binner - happiest moment of my footballing life? Martin O''Neil''s last minute winner at Portaloo Road in the 3:2 win on December 27th 1982. Nor am I wanting to be negative for the sake of it - I''m just pointing out that points don''t just materialise from nowhere, you''re as good as your last performance, and at the moment we are not getting them nor playing especially well. The difference between a win and a draw is massive - especially at this stage of the season and without going mad we need a little more adventure. Fortune favours the brave. The lessons of history are not supestitions...
  21. I know this has been mentioned before but the sequence has an unnerving familiarity:7th at Christmas then 11 games without a win but a few draws so "picking up points". A 3:0 win against the doomed Binners - "all but safe surely" - followed by 8 games without a win and relegation by 2 points. The law averages said we would get the elusive second win - we never did. Long in the tooth supporters know we are governed by Sod''s law. We need to win games against modest opposition and slowly but surely enough of those below us are in striking range. Be afraid.
  22. If you look up the Daily Express on line - quoted in the link- you''ll see its nothing more than we know already. Sorry - but we can still live in hope
