  1. Their plight sums up so much that is wrong with Championship football. Most clubs in debt, some very heavely and without promotion to the Primer league, no way of earning themselves out of debt. Those that stay within their means, are lower table with dewindling gate receipts that will eniviatably lead to greater losses, insolvency and/or relegation. McCarthy has his work cut out to be mid table and not spend beyond his means and keep the interest of his supporters. It can be done as we know on a shoestring budget and the right man at the helm. I just don''t see it in the case of ITFC.

  2. Norwich is the only team I support or have a passion for. If I was in exile somewhere in England there would be no need to watch another team. However, living in the USA there is no conflict of interest in watching MLS, so I do attend several Houston games in the season. If Norwich were to play Houston in a preseason game, Yellow and Green it would be.

  3. Likely I will be signing up for the clubs Player feed. Over here Fox Sports did cover one championship match each week.

    Silver lining, may be I have a better chance of getting tickets when I come home once or twice a year. But you''re right Lakey, Prem TV coverage spoils you.

  4. Assuming no great escape, The boad and CEO will now be writing our strategy for next season. The goal will be either immediate promotion back to the prem or consolidate. Budgets set accordingly which would include how much to spend on a Manager to achieve the goal and the risk associated with the strategy. The Manager named for next season will be the clue as to our ambitions and goal.

    There will have been similar plans for the last 3 years which included relegation contingency covered in the contracts of high earners amoung other similar prudent measures. In a way, next season. requires more planning and stratergy than this one.

  5. Mixed feelings in this one

    Neither manager has anything to loose..they both have taken over failing teams by their respective standards and it''s not their fault. Adams has some managerial experience at a lower level. Giggs is or was a great player and should know how to motivate his co-workers but managing tactics from the side is a new experience for him.

    On balance we have a small management advantage. Man U have the advantage of better players and a back room staff we can only dream of.

    Gonna be interesting and likely match of the day for many reasons.

  6. As a plastic, the phrase "sticks and stones" comes to mind.

    If my distribution on replica shirts, Tees, and budgie key rings around east Texas boost the clubs finances and a few more people know of teams outside Manchester and London, then great too.

    Mostly, I laugh at the term.

    Be happy to meet up though for the WBA game to discuss in person.
