    Cardiff - Proper highlights

    [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]

    Delia, Webber and Stone speak

    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.

    Renew or not renew, that is the question

    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.
  4. 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.

    kd, I remember when we were in League One you told me that if we managed to reach the Championship we would get no further unless we replaced "her". Why should I believe you this time buddy?

    You''ve got a better memory than me nutty but it was my opinion at the time and I got it wrong - football has become even more money orientated since then so there''s more of a chance I''m right this time.Serious question for you nutty - if we could find what could be considered suitable ownership as an alterative to the current regime would you be in favour?

    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

    Board out

    Surely it''s the current owners admitting they have taken the club as far as they can and actually trying to attract a buyer. Problem seems to be that they don''t seem to want to let go.

    He's Gone!!!

        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.
  11.        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.

    An open letter to Delia

    [quote user="Faded Jaded Semi Plastic SOB"]Alex Neil is merely a symptom of our woes, Delia and MWJ are the problem, time for them to move on methinks.....[/quote]Spot on 
  13. [quote user="Tettey''s Jig"]Seeing WBA announce Rondon and Shaquiri going to stoke. Getting all the more inpatient now. Really worry we won''t have enough unless we get at least a more reliable goal getter in. Hopefully the next 3 weeks we loosen the purse strings as its clear we don''t have enough as the squad stands.quote]

    I''ve been waiting for us to loosen the purse stings for 43 years. Considering we have been in the prem for four of the last five yearsI expected a bit more this year. Lessons don''t seem to have been learned from our last relegation and we really are leaving far to much to chance with our lack of quality signings.Problem is that teams like West Brom and Stoke will have that quality this year and can no longer be considered as games we should get something from.Hopefully we will address these issues in the next 3 weeks but I wouldn''t bank on it.
  14. Fairly positive but still feel like many others that we need a first choice cb and a decent striker. If we get both my positivity levels would go through the roof.
