  1. Good post  Well done for postingDespite some negative posts about information it is what message boards thrive on.  Bits of information here and bits of information there.Rarely is there smoke without fire.  I understood there to be more in it than has come out.  It took a long time to get the story straight imoFor my penny''s worth I dont believe we are out of the woods yet.  Doubt Burnley will be back but there are others circling for that I am sure. Its that time of year

    Lambert got his way quick, eh?

    For the January dealings.

    All will soon be revealed.

  3. Yes and whilst Dalglish is temp in charge Someone will get the job from another club  Just may create another opportunity  Maybe NOTLOB

    Lambo to Liverpool!

    It will not be the L''Pool job but between now and the summer there will be other Prem jobs coming up  There a several in the firing line already  Did PL get a call saying hang on mate keep reading the magazines we want you from London ?
  5. I am more than concerned that PL has bigger fish to fry than Burnley just nowAt least 2 more Prem managers under scrutiny with Woy gone.  He may think that he will get a bigger club out of the merry go round that will undoubtedly occur

    Lambert has quit

    Everybody is far too excitedWhilst it may seem things happen instantaneously they dontBurnley are interested we dont want him to goHe may be in 2 minds may use it as a bargaining tool or genuinely doesnt know what he thinks about there opportunity  He might just want to know what Burnley are saying and you cant blame anybody for thatRemember  money destroyed all loyalty in football.  Ginger Pele  know al about not being wanted and possibly Bg as well  both sides to the coinAnyway it will take a few days to sort

    Again yet more stereotypes coming out from Nolly!

     

    Why wouldn''t a promoted team be this high, its happened before?

     

     The opposite to this is everyone assuming relegated sides will do so great in the Championship which doesn''t always occur, indeed many clubs relegated from the Premiership are in a worse state than promoted sides out of League 1!

    Next six games

    What ever happened to one game at a time.  Its not FM 2010Speculation is for PC gamesI think that each game is influenced by the last and confidence levels  A good little winning streak can have a big impact  confidence is high and opposition not keen to play you.  The other way round and it becomes difficult to pick up any pointsIt just doesnt matter other than its fun ( I think)

    If ever a serious investor/investors were interested - but also wanted total ownership as a part of their investment.....I just think that would be a major stumbling block with our two majority-shareholders.

    I think that the appointment of Stephen Fry onto the NCFC board,  is ''quite nice''.

    Although, in my opinion - and even with Stephen''s talent, networking and twittering, new board member Stephen Fry is very unlikely to court or bring in a rich investor (or investors) with considerable and serious finance - who would be quite prepared and content with just having a seat on the board, with an occasional vote, limited decision making and input - and a lovely lunch before the game...

    I really don''t think that Delia and Micky Wynn, would wish to relinquish their tight reins of ownership - or are prepared to move aside - or step down....any time soon.....

    Financially - and for the moment....It does unfortunately look like we are going with what we''ve got....

    Cmon give it a rest

    If we were such a good buy and we have upped the anti by being promoted and mixing at the right end of the league somebody would be seriously sniffing.  They aint so lets at least be realistic and stop just saying they wont sell.  They wont sell at a stupid price and I dont blame them.  You wouldnt give up an asset just cos somebody doesnt like you owning it

    Its a hellva risk owning a football club

    Yes, you are quite obviously correct in stating the obvious that ''they'' (being the majority shareholders) wouldn''t be prepared to sell at a stupid price. I certainly wouldn''t expect them to.....Fortunate then, that we didn''t go into administration last season - as the majority shareholders (and NCFC) would have then stood to lose more than just their investment and return of loans....it''s certainly a helluva risk owning a football club.   

    I was just slightly curious and really do wonder what the lack of progress or stumbling block is/was, with these/those, ''interested parties''....? Any theories?

    How truly and actually really determined are our club hierarchy, actively seeking further investment to our club?

    The only one''s I can recall, are the recent appointment of Stephen Fry to the board - and then that ''sneeze and you''ll miss him'' brief and fleeting visit last season, of Mr Fernandes of Lotus F1 and AirAsia fame. Our current CE seemed to be doing his damned hardest to promote our club to Mr Fernandes by also inviting the local press and TV media to be present.....Although I do then remember seeing Mr Fernandes sat at the back of the Directors Box for the game he was invited to watch, and strange and unusual, not sitting alongside the majority shareholders....Oh well....never mind.        

    We most certainly do require further investment - whether it brings in new ownership or not....We don''t want to lose key personnel due to financial frustration....do we? 

    Anyway.....maybe our Stephen, can hopefully pull a lucky rabbit out of the hat for us.....

    ''Here''s hopping''......

     

    [/quote]Its right to hope that somebody will come along and invest but the continual harping on at the current landlords is wasting breath ( or time if you are typing)Blackpool are a good example that you can move forward as are WBA neither of them are owned by mega rich.truth is many football clubs could be bought right now by an opportunistic but few change hands because everybody fears the pompey/leeds scenario''s if on a smaller scaleIts is true that millionaires are not worth having anymore.  To make a difference they have to billionaires.It reminds me of an old Richard Branson saying when invited to speak to an assembled bunch of business man.  He said i was asked to speak on How to become a millionaire.  My first though was why should I tell them but second thought was First you becaome a billionaire and then you buy an airline !  Substitute Football club for airline and the story is the same.  Thats the real problem.  Nobody is making real money out of woning a football club

    Portsmouth FC - Liquidated

    [quote user="ncfcrooferman"]Portsmouth ''likely to close down'' total mismanagement of a football club the vultures(players)have bleed the club dry, silly transfer fees paid and now it looks like the club will die because of this. 100 years of history killed because of greed and the only people to lose are the loyal fans of this club.in my view its time to stop this happening to any more clubs the F.A. and Premier Lge need to put new rules and regs in place to stop the current overspending and silly wages paid to very average players and vastly overrated foreigners who keep entering these shores other wise which club is going to be next ? ...........the first nail in the coffin for our once great game a very sad day for English football :([/quote]I am not sure why football clubs should have special considerations  They are like all businesses  They live and die by how they operate.  Any way this looks like a "Rooneyism"  Somebody playing high noon with conditions or contract clauses they want in the media  Still along way to go   Dont write them off  yet

    Rudd in goal on Saturday?

    [quote user="Sports Desk Pete"]A man on each post for corners - you learn that at school....[/quote]Yet so many dont  It isnt just Norwich that dont do it.Counter argument is  Dont let have the chance in the first place  More players marking and contesting the ball less need for people to stand by th epost just in caseThat said most GK''s are very self critical  They hate letting in any goal  They always fel they could have done better

    Theoklitos

    Wrong place wrong time for the guyWe will never know if he could have made it at NorwichDebuts in new leagues are notoriously difficult.  His performance on the day was not representative of pre season.The turmoil in the club would have a major impact on someone who didnt not have a bunch of big time experience.  His main supporters were gone after a short time he was in England and he was faced with a manager with no information on him and had conceded 7 against his side. Less than  auspicious start.Chance gone
