    NCFC to furlough staff

    Absolutely this! Even at Norwich I’d imagine some of the highest earners on the playing staff, earn more a week than some of the non playing staff earn a year! It is a moral issue and the first people to be taking cuts in any business should be the high rollers, before such business look to government assistance and lay off those on the shop floor!

    Can you imagine

    As a Norwich fan, as you are, if we had the means to buyout Norwich with millions to invest we would! Obviously that is fantasy. I work in a UK crown dependency where alot of high net worth individuals choose to keep their money due to favourable tax regime. We regularly see sales pitches for EPL clubs, that are being aggressively marketed. Investment doesn’t walk to the doors of Carrow Road, you have to market the club in the right circles. I have no inside knowledge, but the recent interviews with Delia and MWJ in the newspaper and on sky were pretty clear they weren’t interested in selling the club or even listening to offers. my point on spending £30m this season is that there are adequate cash reserve’s in EPL money and player assets to mitigate that risk. Even in the event of relegation (which is likely) there should be enough to cover such expenses. The issue with Naismith and Jarvis was handing out such long contracts to very average players! But again most clubs do this but have ownership that can take the financial hit! I love NCFC and appreciate everything DS & MJW have done, but every dog has its day and maybe that day is done?

    Thanks for your response, I appreciate constructive dialogue. Im not trying to provoke or rise people to my bait! I also post infrequently, but occasionally I feel compelled. under the current ownership I wouldn’t suggest putting the clubs finances at risk as there is no cash reserves to support any speculative spending! e.g. my point is the current ownership cannot and are unable to take the club financially forward, whilst at the same time unwilling to relinquish power. The self sustaining model is the only model that maintains their power. Again I’m accused of singing from the same chord after defeat, well if no one stands up against the apathetic majority, Delia’s reign will carry on! How lucky for her the majority is apathetic

    Well clearly if you use the vernacular of a teenager (Actual LOLs) I could be forgiven for assuming you are one

    Do you understand grammar? After a statement you use and exclamation mark!!!!!!!! In the quote you copied there were two, in three paragraphs, hardly excessive use(I want to use an exclamation mark here but don’t want to offend your sensitivities)

    Yes FD honestly! What’s your opinion? We just except the status quo?

    This statement shows the apathy! If you can’t change it don’t talk about it! where would the world be today if people just gave up at the first obstacle? clearly there’s no place for people of my ‘ilk’ on this fan forum! I’ll jog on now, wouldn’t want to be thought provoking, shudder the thought

    Oh really! Obviously the limit of your debating skills is a one sentence pun! When you’re able to formulate a constructive counter argument to my initial point that I can’t rebuke, then you’ll have ‘rinsed me’ however as you probably don’t understand the majority of my previous statement, let’s just agree you’ve ‘rinsed me’

    You’re right! I’m so sorry I showed ambition! theres no place for that as a Norwich fan! Tail between legs I’ll walk away

    Ok missed the ‘m’ you should be a proof writer
  13. Cliff the Canary

    Can you imagine

    I don’t think so! What part of my post is pathetic? It’s fact we have an ownership model that doesn’t allow the club to compete at the highest level! What’s pathetic is that you can’t see it, or refuse to believe it!

    Again honourable performance, for long periods held their own against best team in the world! Pundits again full of praise, best team ever to get relegated! can you imagine if the club owners had risked a £20-£30 spend in the summer to supplement the squad and just give them that bit extra! If they had I doubt we’d be holding up the table! The board is so risk adverse that an opportunity that has come too soon, is not pursued as it doesn’t fit the plan! Where is the risk if you have >£80m in PL money and playing assets that could be sold for >£50m? What a missed opportunity! Hope it’s not one the club live to regret! If we don’t come straight back up next year and there is a player exodus, will the apathetic fans amongst us except that and applaud Delia et el for keeping faith with the ‘model’? sigh what a shame
