    It's Friday Again...

    Nice to see you keeping up the tradition Wazzy.

    An Italian, a Frenchman, and an Englishman were discussing screams of passion.

    The Italian said:

    "Last night I massaged my wife all over her body with the finest extra

    virgin olive oil, then we made passionate love and I made her scream,

    non-stop, for five minutes."

    The Frenchman said:

    "Last night I massaged my wife all over her body with special

    aphrodisiac oil from Provence and then we made passionate love. I made

    her scream for fifteen minutes."

    The Englishman said

    That''s nothing! Last night I massaged my wife all over her body with a

    special butter. I caressed her entire body with the butter, and then

    made love and I made her scream for two long hours."

    The Italian and Frenchman, astonished, asked, "Two full hours? Wow!

    That''s phenomenal, what did you do it to make her scream for two

    hours?"

    The Englishman replied:

    "I wiped my hands on the curtains."

    [quote user="PurpleCanary"][quote user="The Butler"]It wasn''t wages, he is not paid a wage, he is not an employee.

    It was a "bonus" for the work that has proven "faulty".

    So as chairman of the company and I was paid a bonus for what proved a big mistake, then yes I would expect to pay some or all of it back.[/quote]TB, you are right, of coure, that it wasn''t wages. But you are making two assumption. Firstly, that a significant part of Balls'' work (and so of his bonus) involved choosing Moxey. That must be the case because you say that work has proved faulty, and that is in the context of Moxey resigning. But Balls may have had little or nothing to do with the selection process. Smith and Jones found McNally  all on their ownsome, so may have done the same with his successor.Secondly, you may know more about what happened, but that Moxey has

    resigned doesn''t necessarily mean he was a bad choice. He may have been

    doing a good job (the transfer window seems to have been very well

    handled) but fell foul of other factors outside his control.

    Afternoon PC the comment was made “tongue in cheek” as I am world wise enough to know that Balls would be very unlikely to pay back all or any of the “reluctantly accepted” bonus. Although it would be very interesting to know what vital work was carried out to warrant such a payment.

    The vital work carried out by the previous chairman in dragging the club from the brink again, I don’t think received similar recognition.

    McNally was recommended to the board by Roy Hodgson I believe (from their Fulham days together) so could be down to their find.

    As Stone applied (I believe) for the CEO’s post he could hardly be expected to interview and recommend one of his competitors, so Balls was the likely one to carry out that roll.

    The news of Moxey leaving stated “by mutual agreement” so hardly a resignation as such more a face saving on both parts.

    I think that the details of the ex CEO’s manner and his hands off with fans and fan based groups was well known(from his Wolves days) and it seemed odd at the time that a club that has “the best fans in the world” should employ someone that had so little time for said fans.

    I cannot comment about his handling of this transfer window as we do not know what the full aims were to assess his success or failure.

    [quote user="morty"]Yes, it was wages for long hours he put in, doing work for the club.Is that what happens in business then, people pay bonuses back?I put it to you, that you are talking nonsense.[/quote]

    I am not going to get into an argument with a serial arguer.

    You have no idea what you are talking about and NO it was not wages.

    Thanks for your point of view and a good and happy posting day to you.

    Jez Moxey

    [quote user="......and Smith must score."][quote user="VanWink"]Interesting that many on here were bemoaning Moxey for being appointed as a lap dog for Delia. Shows how little we really know.[/quote]Good point.[/quote]

    Even lap dogs get smacked for piddling on the carpet

    If as stated Stone was acting CEO and Balls stepped into the role to recruit Moxey and to quote Balls" reluctantly accepted the 90K for this work".

    No I don''t suppose you would.

    Then logic is not your strongest point.[/quote]If you got something wrong at work, would you pay some of your wages back?[/quote]

    Perspective.

    [quote user="PurpleCanary"][quote user="Len"]The stats suggest that the club has markedly deteriorated under Wynn-Jones and Delia. The Smith family will have profited even if we slide backwards into league one?[/quote]Not true. When Smith and Jones came on board they had to cope with the Chase-caused financial crisis, and the team was scrabbling around in mid-table in the second tier. There was then the ITV Digital meltdown to surmount. And since, if as they have said, they give their shares to their nephew, far from profiting, owning Norwich City will have cost them millions.[/quote]

    Purple that is a very stupid statement to make

    By deciding to give their shares to Tom does not devalue them and therefore does not cost them millions. In fact by putting them in trust it potentially saves them(or their heirs) tens of thousands in death duties.
  9. With maths like that you could not subtract a fart from a plate of beans!

    So if AN goes and we pay compo we are then adding a new managesr salary?

    Are we not paying AN and his assistant now then. Would we not have allowed for their salaries?

    Complain by all means but please get it right.

    The Return of Delia's Dolls House.

    It just seems obvious that having paid their tax all their lives that finding a way to protect some of it when they leave it to someone on their death is just being prudent!
  11. So there you have the reason the shares will be put in trust.

    Ever heard of death duties?

    40% of whatever is left over £300,000ish!

    Trusts are a way to avoid paying some of it.

    Is that right Purple

    Breakfast With Stephen Fry

    [quote user="TCCANARY"]

    [quote user="damn that Ralph Coates!"]came across this piece of binner humour today as I live in midst of enemy territory http://www.suffolkgazette.com/sport/stephen-fry-joins-ipswich-town-board/#comment-577[/quote]

     

    The article had little or no humour in it but the comment at the bottom about them needing a Director of Crowd Entertainment was spot on.
