[quote user="norfolkchance1"]When do we start in the FA Cup, we might even get a TV game because we''ll be one of the biggest sides in the first round draw.[/quote]
It would be nice but probably won''t happen knowing our luck.
Do try to keep up![/quote]
Give it a bloody rest! on your method Norwich are bigger than Wigan! but do you think Wigan give two shits???
i know who''s shoes i''d rather be in out of wigan and norwich
[quote user="Spineless Fooks"]We could''ve been giant killers last year if we''d have beaten a premier league side. Just that this year we have a better chance of becoming a giant killer. Let''s not forgot every team will be gunning for us in the first and second rounds of the FA Cup.[/quote]
I think it''s generally accepted that the term giantkilling refers to results between clubs at least two divisions apart.
But can you imagine this headline:
Little Canaries dump big neighbours Posh from FA Cup
Delia purrs "I''m so proud of our lads"
[quote user="blahblahblah"][quote user="Fernando Derveld"]We can start with the titan of football that is Scunthorpe.And according to blahblahblah, we''re already "stealing players" from them - what a coup![/quote]You''re applying "old world" thinking old chap. Burnley & Hull are in the Premiership now, and Donny and Scunny have more TV income than us as they''re in the league above. If you can''t see us poaching a player from a team a league above as a positive thing, then frankly I can''t help you.Do try to keep up !
Maybe then, we should have ''poached'' Burnley or Hull''s Chief Execs?.....Or Donny Rovers''? Or Scunthorpe''s?....Or Preston''s?....Or Blackpool''s?....etc....etc....They must be doing something right? Or they''re just so damn lucky!
Our stature within the game will always make us a relatively big club. Not massive but big. Leeds are now entering their third or fourth year in League One and they''re still considered the ''biggest'' club in the division. Last year if Leicester had beaten, say, Plymouth or Barnsley, I don''t think that would have gone down as a giant-killing
With regards to the difference between Norwich and Wigan, I''d much rather be a Norwich fan than a Wigan one. Genuinely. Norwich have a proud tradition, not too many trophies but have mixed it with the big boys and earnt a good reputation. Wigan are a small town in Lancashire dwarfed by Manchester, Bolton, Blackburn and probably even Burnley, who have been bankrolled to ''success'' with foreign players seeking money and playing in a half-empty stadium.
I presume that this is what you suggest we try and do this year given the players you would be so happy with us poaching.
Prudent ambition maybe?
the only real fact we should be paying attention to is this little beaut:
Scunthorpe United - Coca Cola Championship
Norwich City - Coca Cola League 1
Disgusting I know, but must be sorted.....
[/quote]We hve trouble beating teams like bury, what makes u think we will suddenly become giant killers!!! Knock Knock!![/quote]
"Just as long as we get the scum in the cup we''ll all be happy bunnies"..........
Let''s hope we don''t get them then so it makes you bloody miserable.......
