Tense, nervous headache.

It's all come down to the final Saturday of the season.
City are playing Fulham.
I'll be in a bar at 10am in Saturday morning listening on the radio.
I'll have my phone switched off untill we are in posession of all the facts.
I could do with a week without this pressure.
But I love it so.

it would be a helluva time for their first away win of the season. best wishes to all fans of the green and yellow.

and re: the FA Cup final, your decision is hard to fault. i certainly am not terribly excited about the match. at least we're in for a summer full of World Cup qualifying. that'll do the trick.

No offence Jamie, but after the last time you took a personal interest in the affairs of Norwich (Villa, remember?) I'd like to take this opportunity to ask you to stay well away from me and any members of my family this saturday. I'd also like to ask that you avoid the Upper west side between the hours of 10am and noon. I even had to have the slighlty emotional conversation with the missus yesterday asking her to stay away, she has a long history of jinxing Norwich and/or England. As a Redsock you know it's nothing personal and we shall soon meet and laugh about this, but for now? please?.

I will be going into purdah on Cape Cod Friday to Sunday and removing myself from all electronic communication and broadcast devices. The few times I have watched Norwich play live this year they have blown 2 or 3 goal leads to either draw or lose. Therefore I'm going to sacrifice for the Breckland, for the Broads, for the Wash, for Poppyland, and for the Fine City. All together now:
In the days to call, which we have left behind, Our boyhood's glorious game,
And our youthful vigour has declined With its mirth and its lonesome end;
You will think of the time, the happy time, Its memories fond recall
When in the bloom of our youthful prime........

Well done Weasel. for an 'orrible moment there I thought you were going to sing the Wymcol song. Then I got it! No one, but no one knows the first words to 'on the ball city'.
OTBC!

Throughout the days of history
Our Kinsmen fought for liberty
That truth my conquer tyranny
And justice only frame our laws.
Now Pilgrim Father's sons returned
And Wymondham's verdant acres turned,
To simple buildings thus concerned
To suffer bravely for this cause.
Now in tradition we exclaim
Eternal values still the same
Floriat Sapientia! Floriat Sapientia! etc.

Now that's the WymCol song.

Oh crap.
Guess I walked right into that one.
PS: Have you heard the one about the Tory Councillor, his mum and the Tory MP? (not to mention the voting fraud in Wymondham) Check out today's EDP.

i wouldn't dream of doing anything to jinx this for you, and have no plans to be anywere near the UWS on Saturday (in fact, i'll be on the LES for a while). however, i would like you to remember more the time that i predicted the Canaries' first win of the season over Southampton rather than my presence at a blowout which, to be fair, was already 2-0 by the time i showed up.

and yes, a meet and laugh should certainly be arranged sometime soon.
