    Tettey makes the cut as an underrated EPL player
    What I love about him is his look of surprise when it all goes right.

    How many players can you recognise from this shower? 1992.

    Here's one piece of 'history' they're unlikely to keep bleating on about!! <laugh>

    The Blues are currently 10th but with the points per game and weighted points per game proposals - viewed as the most likely to be accepted - seeing Paul Lambert’s men placed 11th in their first third tier season since 1956/57.
    That would be Town’s lowest finish since 1952/53 when the Blues, then managed by Scott Duncan, were 16th in Division Three South.

    That's ugly for them.

    If there was a points per game for National League North, Kings Lynn would be promoted as champions

    I just really hope Coventry go up, after the horrendous time the club and its fans have had in recent years.

    He won't score too many easier goals than this!

    That's the plan; it will depend on how the testing goes. Has it been decided where the games will played? At home without fans, or at neutral stadiums?

    There was a 'top 10 premier league games' ever I wondered if Norwich and Middlesbrough's 4-4 in January 2005, 1-4 down with 10 mins to go, Drury of all players scoring the winner. would be in there. Silly me they wouldn't mention two unfashionable clubs like that.

    There is the full replay or this dodgy highlights of someone recording off the TV (this is the best highlights there is) for a reminder of the game:


    Note we couldn't defend set pieces 15 years ago and we still can't now haha

    MOTD are too biased against Norwich, the only mention we would get is if we lost or goals were being scored against us (Jack Wilshire) They wouldn't mention things such as our 4-2 comeback against Arsenal in the early days of the Premier league when Robins lobbed seaman or our 5-1 win over Everton when a certain striker scored 4 goals or even some of those volleys by Goss. We did finish 3rd once in the Premier league but that never gets mentioned by MOTD

    I see Raheem Stirling has made the rather crass statement that football needs more black managers.

    So it doesn't matter how poor he is as a manager, so long as he's black that's okay <doh>

    When Chris Kamara and Paul Ince got fired from their managerial positions, when asked if it was anything to do with their colour, didn't they say something like, "Don't be stupid. This was a football decision and not a race issue. We weren't good enough. We failed. End of story."
    I believe Chris Houghton gave more or less the same answer when reporters tried to make it a race issue.

    You're backing up my point sir, you can't say we only want a black manager, that just won't work <ok>
