    Paddy D and Daniel Farke

    Farke is a managerial genius. It is not his departure that is needed.

    A club without ambition

    Sadly, it feels that board and supporters alike believe we are not worthy of a seat at the top table.
  3. Farke is a managerial genius. The outcome of that match simply demonstrates that new ownership is required.

    £34 million loss

    Bank the cash. Subsidise player wages in the parachute payment period. Dispose of any saleable player assets. Scramble to avoid administration. Without new ownership - who can underwrite the adjustment period between the PL and chumps - the cycle of missed opportunity and under-achievement will continue.

    Match Thread v Brighton

    Having attended all the away games thus far, Brighton was by some way our worst performance in the PL and competing well with Crawley for its mediocrity. We were never in the game and if we were still playing now I suspect we would not have scored. On the plus side, I don’t think we felt quite as bad as following the previous 5-0 hammering.

    What’s the problem?

    Farke has worked miracles with the assets he has to hand. Last year’s promotion was probably the biggest managerial achievement in the club’s history and, certainly, over the period since the early 70s when I was old enough to attend Carrow Road. There remains a significant gap between the championship and PL. That Webber and the club believed we could go again with last year’s defence - we all knew its frailties - is laughable. But, if and until, we have owners capable - and willing - to invest we will continue to be the embarrassing, PL whipping boys. But, no doubt, the Carrow Road crowd will continue to be both happy and, probably clappy, with our level of achievement. We’re a little club, punching above our weight it will no doubt be argued, and shouldn’t even aspire to compete with big clubs, such as Bournemouth, Burnley and others.

    What’s the problem?

    Simply, but sadly, the club’s ownership

    NCFC Confirmation Statement

    Still waiting for the board to propose an ordinary dividend on my four ordinary shares - perhaps the company will have whopping retained profits following the next two transfer windows. The monsoon conditions - at least en route to Brighton - might help to level us up to compete, our last match there was truly shambolic even by our standards.

    London Stadium

    Decent view from the lower tier to be fair. In terms of atmosphere no worse than many other premier league grounds. And with 60k leaving the ground at the same time organisation for those using Stratford was good. That we escaped with less than an 8-0 drubbing - which it might easily have been - is something to be thankful for. Let’s hope Farke can get more out of our midfield before Burnley.

    Burnley Tickets

    As a postscript I saw no evidence of dissent among the fans last night. It was a disaster because of the injury to Klose but not the result.

    Burnley Tickets

    We don’t typically sell out at Burnley and suspect that pattern will be maintained. There will only ever be pressure on London games plus Bournemouth. Liverpool was exceptional this season based on first game back syndrome. Let’s not forget that the club didn’t even take the full allocation for Utd away last time we were in the PL! There will be plenty of opportunities to travel away if you wish to over the course of the season.

    Standard Home and Away memberships still on sale

    Crawley now on sale to Standard Away Members - so the Premier group has not taken advantage of this away opportunity. Will be interesting how many we take to Burnley but I don’t recall being in a sold out away section in previous years. It seems unlikely that there will quite the pressure on tickets as was the case for Liverpool and WHU.

    Burnley tickets

    If previous seasons are anything to go by we won’t sell out for this fixture

    So Then - time to nail your colours to the mast

    Above Sheffield Utd
  15. Few of the away games sold out when we were in the PL beyond the obvious London games and Bournemouth. Utd also sold out but we didn’t take the full allocation from memory. I suspect we’ll take the max allocation to less than half the games next season. So, those of the Away Premier memberships will get plenty of opportunities based on previous years.
