joking apart i think your assessment of norwich is pretty close to that which i hold for leeds, i would have settled for a top half finish at the start of the season but would still be over the moon having a bit of a go in the play offs, if we can sort that leaky defence we may even better that!! i actually dont mind norwich & even wanted them to go up with us last season maybe not in that order but at least we got out of that awful division eventually.

Graham you have a point when we were relegated it felt like the end of the world (non football fans won’t understand that comment) thought we were in some sort of football purgatory.
I don’t know if you where in a position to attend many away game, me and my son have been avid away followers for the last six years, we thought some of the grounds where quite nice to visit.
We met allot of really nice fans who you have to admire for following clubs with little chance of success.
So my point is yes an awful league but not as bad as I thought it would be.
I have been to Elland Rd a couple of times I suspect it’s a different place when it’s sold out, enjoyed both trips maybe we will return when you join us in the prem, fingers crossed.

I am with Graham on this would have been happy for a top
half finish and yes i was also pleased Norwich went up.
If big if we get to the holy grail of the Premiership i
hope we don.t become a yoyo club or we spend money we
have not got and then spend the next few years scrimping
and scraping.
Elland Road full is a special place.

Going up up up

Nine to go and we are pulling away,ok I know it’s only a small gap but I’m going to enjoy this whilst it lasts.
Own up, be honest who would rather there team be where Norwich are today rather than where they are?

i must say your looking good for 2nd at the moment and seem to regularly score late goals but you should be a little wary of what happened to swansea when they hit 2nd spot. Wink

Now you’ve gone and spoilt it, I just can’t see the point in cricket.
Now if you had said motorcycle racing that would be different.

This league is going to the wire, any of the top ten could still make playoffs or the second spot.
Come on you yellows.

" Now you’ve gone and spoilt it, I just can’t see the point in cricket.

Tut, tut, tut...  Smile
People from Leeds do not always get it wrong.
I am a totally convinced atheist. But if there was a God, inventing Cricket would have been his activity on the seventh day... (he may even have had time to invent Rugby Union also).
As a general sports fan I follow Football too.

But Motorcycle racing...
In my view anything that has an engine involved or any other variable that can allow the second best to consistently win, struggles to meet the criteria of the word "sport".
Surely sport should be about the skill, fitness, mental strength etc of the players rather than their equipment.
I accept that this is not a universally held view but no one has ever given me an convincing argument against it.
Each to their own I guess.

The money over skill argument it does happen no denying when you can afford the best it's a definite advantage.
Now if any one has ever heard of Andy Burton (rally driver) you will see where this goes, Andy built his own rally car a very special peugeut 306 with a silly engine (sorry but memory has blanked) Andy won lots of races with this car and beat many works cars, they protested that his car does not confirm to holomagation i.e not in any partciular group so his car is going to have to stop and all becuase he can beat the money men, British rallying used to great at this but it now is becoming very expensive and why historic rallying is gaining in popularity.

Norwich as a team could be classed as second best and still we constantly win
.
As for other peoples sport I learned a long time ago not to enter into the, this sport is better than that sport argument.

I only mentioned cricket as there are so many yorkies on here.

I fell in love with bike racing when I was fourteen, a love affair that Has gone from strength to strength.
I like football but it will always be my second choice sport.
I understand the engine over muscles point but all I will say is try it and see how fit you need to be to compete.
And yes I have done it, to old now takes too long to mend these days.

Now back to the footy, COME ON You Yellows- six nil- QPR were coming for you.
Even when Leeds get a good result Norwich over shadow them.

As I keep saying going up up up.

Years ago I read an article (The Times if my memory serves me well) in which the writer stated his view that;
1. A True Sport is played by athletes,  either with a ball or it's variants, or is an unaided race, throw or leap.  (football, athletics, hockey etc).
2. A Sporting activity is any event that involves anything mechanical who's variables can impact on the result. But REQUIRES athletic prowess (F1, cycling, Sailing etc)
3. A Game is anything that anyone could possible win regardless of their physical status. (Snooker, darts, chess etc).

That may not be wholly fair but it probably does have at least some merit.
