  1. In the late 70's to the mid 80's there would nearly always be trouble when the London clubs visited, witnessed many incidents of trouble around the old Riverside Rd/Carrow Bridge area. We definitely had a firm around that time called the Steins, I used to work with a couple of them.
  2. Tbf the scums new owners haven't been there long enough to be judged as yet. If we go down this season I'd imagine there'd be a far higher percentage of our fans would want a change of owners.
  3. I think he could well make an impact this season, it may take him a few games to get going but he has all the right attributes to become a very good premier league player. Remember a certain Ronaldo signing for manure 20 years ago as a raw 17 year old from Portugal and it wasn't long before he was a regular starter. Tzolis is almost 20 and has had a lot of first team experience albeit at a lower level for a guy his age. It also helps that he has his pal from Greece playing just behind him.
  4. [quote user="westcoastcanary"][quote user="Mark .Y."]Chhers kio  enjoyed the goals but you would think from those highlights that Cardiff dominated the game, Sky need to do better ![/quote] There are many more actual and potential subscribers to Sky in the Cardiff area than Norfolk. Sky have no interest in putting balance before balance sheet.[/quote]Sheep?
  5. Would the Auxerre she refers to in the article be the same ones who are now below mid table in the second division not having played in the top division for 7 years?Would be good if it works but can''t see it myself, any decent player we do manage to produce will quickly be sold just to keep the club afloat.
  6. Having been attending pretty much every home game for 45 years I made the decision not to renew last year and haven''t missed going at all. Much was probably due to me feeling that the club needed new owners and a completely new direction but now I''ve broken the habit even if we were to get new owners I''m not sure whether I''d go to games on a regular basis anymore.
  7. Mine was the 1989 quarter final against Sheff Utd at home, finished 3-2 to us but they were a league below us at the time and gave us helluva game. Brian Deane and Tony Agana played up front for them that day and their pace and power caused us loads of problems.Cracking atmosphere as well - real blood and thunder cup tie.

[/quote]If Delia and MWJ or the trustees thought it right I can''t imagine anyone wouldn''t be in favour. I trust them as they have been top class custodians of our club throughout a really unpredictable and difficult period for football clubs. Would you trust them to know what was best and if not why not buddy?[/quote]They seem to be blind to the fact that serious money is needed to run a football club nowadays and are preparing to hand over the reins to their nephew who has even less money than them, because of that I''m not sure that I do trust them to know what is best.

Southampton, Leicester, Stoke, Bournemouth to name a few - some of whom have foreign owners and others like Stoke who were lucky enough to have a fan wealthy enough to bankroll them.One thing I am certain of is that Smith and Jones have done all they can and for the good of the club need to find someone suitable with wealth to take over - which is their responsibility not ours.I don''t necessarily think foreign ownership is ideal but would certainly be worthy of consideration if the right person came along

  12.     That''s a major u turn.   Maybe it means they''re about to sell the club and the new owner has insisted they sack him as part of the deal.
  13.        In the 20 years they have owned the club there have been some good and some bad times but we are quite clearly on a downward spiral which will not be halted without a change at top. The Delia and Michael thing is all a bit boring now - 20 years of them is more than enough.
