We all need to be think before we publish on social networks

It would seem there is no rest at the moment for Paul Lambert and his team with not so much of a rebuilding of the team but a need for improvement and extension. Every day it seems we are linked to one player or another. I feel some would move us forward but others might be a step back for the squad.

Personally I think we do not need the big name stars on big wages. We would be better with players who have fire in the blood and are up for a fight. As we all know we are in for a battle this season. But I feel “IN PAUL WE CAN TRUST”.

On another matter I was sadden to read, as it unfolded on Twitter, that one Norwich fan damaged the name of our fine club and all the supporters with one out-of-control comment, and well done to the club for its swift actions.

I am given the responsibility on behalf of NCISA, once in a while to put down a few words of my own. We all have our own opinion, which helps makes the world go around. But we have to accept responsibility for what we say or write.

Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter have opened this up for everyone to send out a comment, all be it joking or serious. All you need is a PC or a mobile phone and it is out there for all to read in seconds. It is therefore worth taking time to consider carefully what we say and its context.

For instance I think (broadcaster and former footballer) Mark Bright made things so much worse with his comments about Norwich supporters and, as yet, has failed to see the error of his choice of words. He was looking from the outside and not understanding that we have record numbers of season ticket holders and that Norwich has some of the best supporters in the country. We are not all glory seekers but are willing to travel miles for our team and in numbers no matter what league we are in. Come on Mr Bright take the time to see what great supporters the vast majority of Norwich fans really are and apologise for your unconsidered comments.
