  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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...

  7. 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.
