    The 'rebate offer' was a PR blunder...

    Look , the guy made an offer to the fans, "If you back the team building then so will I " 30 odd % of the season ticket holders took up the challenge to back their beloved club and he matched their donation. For the life of me I can not see why he is now being made out to be some sort of con artist!!  In the past there have been Threads on here and stuff in the media saying that fans wanted to put money up to buy players , well , he called their bluff and 2/3 of the season tichet holders decided for several different reasons not to do it. That''s fair enough but PLEASE get off the guy''s back! He kept his part of the deal .

    It is a donation. Confirmed on the offy board yesterday by Joe Ferrari

    Hello,

    I have been quite busy preparing for today''s announcement, as have the Board Directors who I needed to speak to in order to source an answer to this question.

    Michael Foulger''s matching contribution on unclaimed rebate money is a donation. It is not a loan and it is not in return for equity.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    [/quote]  So that is one hell of a donation!! It looks as though around half of the season ticket holders (9,000?) will waive their right to a rebate, estimated (so I hear) to be worth £450,000.  Michael F. will match it in a no strings donation. So he is putting into the playing budget as much as 9,000 other supportes are doing.  i always thought if you Blackmail someone you made money !!??

    Gunn Making All The Right Moves

    I think GJL has posted the first negative comment on this board for about 2.5 hours , That in its self shows that most people are begining to realise we are begining to build again, (Slowly but surely) confidence will come back. BUT there is a long way to go.

    Owain Tudor Jones move completed.

    Owain told Norwich''s official website: "I''m looking forward to the

    next few years that I''ll be spending at Norwich. Having been and had a

    look at the facilities, it''s a club I''m thoroughly looking forward to

    playing for and all the challenges that lie ahead.

    "I''ve spoken to the manager and listened to his plans for building the club back up and I want to be a part of that.

    "The club has obviously been having a couple of rough years and it

    is time now to get back to the drawing board, start again and try to

    get the club climbing back up again.

    "It is going to be tough, but as long as everybody at the club

    realises it''s going to be tough and a huge challenge then I think we''ll

    be all right.

    "From playing for Swansea in League One for three years, I''m

    relatively experienced at this level and I know what it takes to win

    games at this level - and that is what we''ll be trying to do."

    Norwich manager, Bryan Gunn, added: "After Owain had figured for

    Wales in their recent win over Azerbaijan, we sat down with the player

    and his agent to thrash out terms. Now I''m delighted we are able to

    confirm we have brought him in on a three-year deal.

        The lad seems to understand  what it will take to start putting things right any way.

    Owain Tudor Jones move completed.

    [quote user="chicken"][quote user="lappinitup"][quote user="chase_out"]Anyone shed any light on the undisclosed fee? I thought he was out of contract...[/quote]Swansea had a years option on his contract, hence the fee. Reported to be £250K plus add-ons by the Beeb.[/quote]

    If he turns out to be a half decent player he will be worth the £250k.

    That would mean we have: Clingan, Russell, Patty, Gill and Tudur Jones that can play there although I wonder if Pattiy will play a wider role. He did play out on the right a lot under Roeder - either that or it signals the possible exit of one or two from Russell, Clingan and Patty..[/quote]I thought Pattison was gone?

    Owain Tudor Jones move completed.

    Subject to him staying fit ( i can''t see why not to be honest ) this looks like a good bit of business.  Maybe Gunn , Butterworth and Crook have managed a fluke signing?  . Or perish the thought, they might just know what they are doing!!

    Bloody tax dodgers!

    Just heard on Radio Norfolk that The Football league will soon be bringing in rules to stop Cubs with large Tax debts from getting in new players. Aparently their idea has been welcomed by the Government and the tax man.  Nothing to do with the Premier League though , so they will still benifit from cheating us (the tax payer).. I really hope we have kept up to date because i have a feeling some clubs are going to be in a bit of a mess in the next few months.
  13. [quote user="Sports Desk - Pete"]Hidden away? It was on the homepage of both the Evening News and the Pinkun sites, and linked to from here on the day it was published.[/quote]  Ah Pete , but it always seems to be better if (some) people on here can talk about conspirisy and Archand being delia''s lap dog / mouthpiece E.T.C.   Can''t let the truth get in the way of a bit of Media / Delia bashing!!
  14.   I find it worrying that the basic right of free speech is frowned upon on this Forum. I personally find it sad that threads that start out as good debate usualy end up as nasty sometimes cruel name calling . If someone has a different opinion to someone else, why will it end with one being callet aschool boy or a trol e.t.c. and the other one a sheep or a cretin or something else.?
