  1. Completely agree about the "big" 4 f*cking off - and taking their money with them. Would then even out the playing field for the rest of us. Might even regenerate interest in the FA Cup.
  2. [quote user="thecanaryfan"][quote user="CashCasinoCrane"]Ashton; around 8 million, Greeno; around 2 million, Earnie; 3.5 million, Etuhu; 1.5 million and so on........we''ve laid out about 3 million in players since all these guys were sold.Sorry if this point has been raised before and please don''t think I''m disillusioned. I''ve actually remained quite positive about our season and will continue to do so. I''m just interested in what actually happened to the cash??!!! Hotels and restaurants don''t win titles!![/quote] Dont forget Lewis, thats another £500k in the boards pockets. I dont include Earnshawe because we didnt make any profit from his exit. Also, dont forget the biggest hole in the boards pockets - The PARACHUTE PAYMENTS from our relegation from the Prem. Something around £17m mark over two seasons last time I checked?! This money should have been reinvested in the team. Where did it go? Your guess is as good as mine. Though it didnt all go on wages and loan fees I can assure you. The board are cheating the fans and the fans dont seem to give a toss. £1m on rebuilding half an entire squad?? Do the board actually think that is adequate given our struggle last season? Do they think its acceptable? They dont give a toss. Why? Because most City fans avoid talking about the clubs finances like the plauge. [/quote]So you''re saying that despite being a PLC, publishing accounts and being externally audited, the board is siphoning off cash (illegally) to themselves?
  3. [quote user="Hoolahoop"]Been in two myself, and the recovery period isn''t very nice at all.   Get well soon Mick, I hope you make a quick and healthy recovery. [/quote]Remind me to never accept a lift from you!All the best Mick - a cracking pair of sideburns as I remember.

I''ve actually remained quite positive about our season and will continue to do so. I''m just interested in what actually happened to the cash??!!! Hotels and restaurants don''t win titles!![/quote] The answer is one of the following : a) Delia had it and spent it all on nice carpets, one of those chairs that swivel around for Doncasters office and frozen mashed potato for the Brasserie. b) Transfer fees are by no stretch of the imagination an indicator of money in and out of a football club, wages take up far much more money.  The club makes and spends over 20 million per year.  Not to mention that the headline transfer fee and the actual money that the club recieves are very different things once sell-on fees and other fees are taken into account. I know which answer I think it is. [/quote]Yeah, but why let the facts get in the way of a good rant? A spinning chair!?! Delia out!!!
  5. Lay off Camul -he''s one of the top posters on this board. And when I say top I mean in terms of quality, not quantity. And he''s from Colchester.
  6. [quote user="Philipo87"]An optimistic 2-1 with Cureton and Koroma the scorers!![/quote]Very optimistic - for Jamie. Can''t see him starting.
  7. I thought he looked good on The Champoionship last weekend. Brought it all back when he scored.I''m halfway between Derby and Nottingham so I think I''ll record it then dash home and see if we get on the telly.
  8. One thing occurs to me - I''m not too disheartened by the "expected" results against the teams we''ve played so far - or by the prospect of Birmingham next Saturday. Last year the Championship was wide open - look who was bottom in October! - and I don''t think it will be that different this year. It''s foolish to expect to walk over the less well regarded teams or to be scared of the "big" ones. Points are points wherever we get them and no game is impossible - ask Barnsley.
  9. If the defence try and hold onto him we could get to see some first class wrestling at the same time too!
  10. [quote user="Neil Cluckcaster"]  Dion was an inspired signing and saved Roeder''s bacon for him last season. I don''t like Roeder and feel he will hang himself given enough rope. Dull...dour and bitter with a personal agenda to address and his job is more about proving his doubters wrong than seeing this club successful. If you enjoy this current bilge then good for you...but some of us have seen far better to bother going right now. [/quote]"Dull...dour and bitter" eh? I''d have thought you''d get on with him like a house on fire.
  11. [quote user="Mr.Carrow"] We have failed to compete in this league for three seasons despite having many financial advantages over our rivals because the performance of the football team has not been a priority.[/quote]   Possibly because the priority has been the survival of the club. Putting more money into the team would be a gamble, and I for one don''t want anyone gambling with the future of the club.
  12. He''s not a bad player at this level, but of the players we have Russell, Clingan, Pattison and all the other options seem to me to promise more. He''s useful to have in the squad, but should he be in the starting line up every week?
  13. [quote user="AndyJR"]Watching ''The Championship'' on ITV, seeing Earnshaw really reminds me of what we miss.  He just looks as if he is going to score given half the chance.  [/quote] Agreed, I thought the same. I hope he is (moderately) successful at Forest, just because it would really piss Derby off!
  14. Cam is justifiably a well respected poster on this board. Neutral, experienced and with contacts in the industry and proven to be right in the past. Rucker, even with your frequent barely literate use of big words like knob on this thread you have 24 posts and univeral condemnation. Cam wins.
  15. [quote user="WeAreYellows49"]ffs Hooly off?? Why?  What are you doing Roeder? [:O][/quote]   Seems like he might know what he''s doing? Hmmmm?
  16. [quote user="Canary Wundaboy"][quote user="YankeeCanary"]However, one of the things that most disappoints me about my fellow Norwich fans posting on this forum is when their words suggest that their "toys" should be subsidized by someone else''s money almost as an entitlement. I mostly abhor the negativity thrown at Delia and Michael because they are running the club under its own steam power financially. I see some of the frustrated comments that Ipswich can afford to buy Ameobi where Norwich cannot. I wonder how the small business merchants who lost their money in the last Ipswich financial meltdown feel about the matter. The fury, on the part of some, in believing that Peter Cullum''s money should be courted so it can be spent on high quality "toys". Not all posters are cut from the same cloth, but there are more than enough that just want their football club to move to a higher level, irrespective of whose money is used to fund it. I understand when I see the young posting such comments. I am most disappointed when it''s the older fans calling for someone else''s money to pay for their toys. Yes, I know, for those of you that buy your season ticket you feel you''ve already done your bit, but you''ve done it at Championship cost. There will be up seasons and down seasons and, for the past three, you''ve been paying for a down cycle. But you had the choice. You still do. That''s your right. What is not your right is to expect that someone else will pay for what you want. It is your right to hope that a hard-nosed business person takes the reins at Carrow Road, and pushes the club to greater heights. However, it would be foolhardy to believe that this will be accomplished without those more expensive toys putting a big dent in your own pocket.  [/quote] What utter rubbish. The many thousands of season ticket holders DESERVE to have their money better spent by the board. These fans have endured years of shower on the pitch and STILL support club through thick and then, and continually see their money wasted on kitchen refurbishments and useless loan players. Quite simply, the fans have had ENOUGH. Delia''s running of this club in her manner has gone on for far too long. [/quote]Funny, I thought for all these years that it was the manager who selected the players to buy. Silly me, it was Delia all along.
  17. I''ve been away for three weeks and was wondering why he''s not at least on the bench. Is he injured (again)?
  18. [quote user="greenheart"]keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeping saying it i bloody will  I ANT HIM![/quote]Sounds more like you''re Yoda!
  19. And in the world of business it is the market and supply and demand which rules. So until clubs start to go bust because of players wages, they will continue at their current rates. They''re probably about as high as they can go as we have seen a few bankruptcies already. Unless someone like FIFA intervene, but they would probably be stopped in the courts under restraint of trade laws.Not saying it''s right, but it''s how a free market works.
  20. It''s not what people want to hear, but a Chief Exec''s role is to ensure the "success" and stability of the organisation he or she heads up. In business terms - and ND is a business man - NCFC is a relatively successful business among clubs in the Championship and even the Prem. Ergo, he is doing his job well.<duck>
  21. ..and they say people are negative on this board!
  22. [quote user="Evil Monkey"] I don''t feel I need to say anything to further my initial point, it was well made and I''m not going to get drawn into petty bickering.[/quote]Eh? Well, why do you post on here then???
  23. A rare moment of sanity (I mean for the message board, not you YC [:)]). It''s also worth pointing out that Cullum stated explicitly that he wouldn''t bankroll the club without limits. He clearly had an amount in mind to invest and didn''t want to exceed that. Of course, once he''s committed there could always be another 10-20% if he felt it was warranted, but he''s not going to be another Ambramovich.
  24. [quote user="Big Ginge"][quote user="Matt Juler"]  The Turner''s are also quoted to have a lot of cash, but again most of this is tied up in businesses and not readily available at this time. [/quote] Of course the Turners don''t have a Post Office acount with £750 million in it. Well I doubt it anyway. However they do have massive security and could raise cash very easily. Even Peter Cullum said he wouldn''t look to clear all the debts just renegotiate [/quote]Why don''t you remortgage your house and put the cash in the transfer fund if you want the Turners to borrow against their business?
