    I'd turn this around and say we forego sponsorship and do something to put something back into the community so the Samaritans, Mind, EACH, Cancer Research - perhaps on different shirts is the way forward. I'm sure there are plenty of local charities. Pay them the direct proceeds from shirts and raffles etc.  

    Oooo Jeremy Corbyn

  2. BK8 just looks like the common sort of tripe you see from the snapchat generation, a desperate, never ending quest to sell every shred of dignity for hashtags. Maybe the club was trying to be "cool". Either way, it's poor judgement. Best to just laugh at it and move on.

    How many times can a club squander the opportunity gifted by promotion? Asking for a friend…

    season 1: obviously need a striker - wait too late to sign Ashton and get relegated 

    season 2: obviously need a defender - wait too late to sign Klose and get relegated 

    season 3: spend £2.50 and fail to land a single player capable of breaking into starting XI and get relegated 

    season 4: sell best player and main assist maker to a rival and…we shall see 

    I'm sure you'd do a better job than Webber. Send in a job application.

    With the premier league money and the Emi money there is absolutely no need to sell any more of our stars

    if this does happen then it’s proof absolute that there truly is no ambition from the stowmarket 2 

    I suspect many more will go and surely this will finally unite the fans against the incompetent stowmarket 2 

    We didn't need to sell Emi. He wanted to leave, others may too and there's sod all we can do about it. That's the current world of football

    Let's not forget their "project" (aka letting a billionaire throw money at them) is only alive because some incompetent didn't turn on the goal line technology. 

    This is such a silly argument. Had that incident happened in the first game of the season, nobody would make such ridiculous claims. You stay up due to your performance over the course of a whole season. You could look at any team and pick out examples where results were impacted by good and bad luck.

    I disagree. I’m not talking about his new contract or the recent transfer, I’m just talking about him being at Villa in general. My comparison was him having the same contract as he does here, since joining Villa from Getafe 4 seasons ago without ever coming to NCFC. There is no way they would sell him to another club for what we have just done to them. And I wasn’t really comparing about which league both respective teams have been in for the past few seasons, but in all honesty he could’ve gone down with Villa last season and taken them back up like he has done with us and they still wouldn’t have sold him for what we have done.

    It’s a sad realisation for where we are in the pecking order, and it’s even sadder to think that we absolutely won’t we’ll see Brentford sell Toney or Watford sell Sarr to a Palace, Wolves, Newcastle etc. for a similar sum.  

    You will if they get relegated, the difference is we kept Emi for an extra year. Few people seem to be grasping we're in a totally different situation to Brentford. Emi wanted to leave a year ago, the impact of Covid stopped it. We got an extra year, when in normal circumstances, he'd have been sold. We'll see what happens with Sarr.

    Nobody will bid 35 mill for Toney yet, he's not proved he can do it in the prem.

    Villa fan in peace. Im a long time admirer of Norwich's brand of football. Win, lose or draw...Norwich have an entertaining passing style that I've admired for as long as i can remember. 
    Norwich' model: This may divide opinion, and im no expert on it ... but I admire the scouting system and the business model SW et al runs at Norwich. Always rated him at Huddersfield.  By bringing in players like buendia for 1 to 2 million...developing the player, entertaining the fans, winning promotion and a then receiving a richly deserved profit...if they decide to sell...Norwich are proving again and again that they have a formula that works financially for the club. Yes, football is about winning. But its about winning long term realistic battles.  I don't tune into motd to see man citeh win again. It's to see Norwich or Southampton or burnley show that it can be done, all whilst reinvesting and keeping their clubs on a firm financial footing....and winning the hearts and minds of average folk like me.  This is far more difficult, imho, than the gung ho cash lobbing path some clubs have trodden before. I, for one, have seen how, in the wrong hands, clubs like Villa, can face major uncertainty with inept owners and rash buys. 
    Buendia:  from what I've seen, in the current money mad market, buendia is worth much more than the 40 million ive seen quoted. He has a lot to his game. His runs into the pockets, his flicks, his intelligence off the ball...it's a rare gift these days. I cant understand why other teams aren't queuing up for him. If he had played for Argentina v Chile the other night, the sum would be different. With some of the dross that is being sold for bananas money these days....Buendia looks like a transfer of the summer for me. I'm not assuming villa will get Buendia. Far from it.  I'm a realist...and he could, and should have his pick of the teams. However, money talks...and I'm sure Norwich will take the best deal for the club. The days of having to sell Eadie to Leicester for 3.5 million  are thankfully long gone for Norwich.
    The future: I'd be happy to see Norwich challenging in the upper echelons of the Premier league. But realistically, as with Villa, it's a long way off. It could be worse, and we could go the way of citeh, and lose the real identity and souls of our clubs.
    The past: im still waffling, and showing my age, but I remember when Norwich sold Kevin Reeves, after he played for England,  to Man City for a whopping 1 million or more back at the start of the 80s. At the time, it went down like a lead balloon with my school pals....but it did pave the way for the river end stand (my former hairdresser once informed me). That 1 million transfer back then embittered fans, but was a stadium game changer to Norwich at that time....and in the long run.
     I remember Villa paid a similar combined sum for Withe, Morley and Bremner around that time...albeit not marquee signings then..but they proved to be key members of the league and European Cup winning side in the following 18 months. 
    So i guess the point I'm making is, its about the bigger financial picture. (Trying not to sound condescending). Norwich will use the money they receive for Buendia wisely... bringing in some prospects...maybe some free agents on bigger salaries....whilst building even more financial stability in uncertain times. Let's not forget, there are still some fine players at the club. I'm sure I'll be reading once again how a lump of Spanish/Argentine coal has once again been turned into a Norwich diamond. 
    Whatever the outcome on the buendia or even grealish transfer situation,  Good luck next season, and in the future. 

    Good post, you've got yourselves one hell of a fine player. I don't think many in the Prem have more natural talent than Emi. In my opinion, he's the best I've seen in a Norwich shirt, in my lifetime as a fan 

    I wish him all the best at Villa. Grealish and Emi in the same team is quite an amazing prospect.

    Vile?? I understand why you're upset but that's just bizarre. Why? What have they done?

    I've seen a lot of posts on here recently like this. Every time we have even the smallest issue with a club suddenly their club/fans/owners are all c*nts.

    You're making us look like stereotypical small club yokels. 



    Spot on

    Thanks for being a traitor and helping a rival team.

    You're either an Ipswich fan or a crappy fan, both equally lame, spending your free time on a forum spewing bile and hate. Get a new hobby, get healthy.
