Delia simply never ever learns

If Delia was that happy with the championship then she would put less money in and we would finish mid table for 16 consecutive seasons 

She doesn’t put any money in. None. She did put a bit in once back in the day which was converted to shares and in fairness has written off some interest.

Ok, perhaps I didn’t say that quite right. The point is that people are saying Delia doesn’t want to be in the prem and doesn’t have any ambition. If that’s the case why is she so keen to get promoted then ? I haven’t got a problem with having a go at her but say something sensible.

Delia put no money in last year, or the year before and before that! 
she did however call in the shareholders loans in 2011!

so what’s your point exactly?

As many posters have said she simply can’t afford to own an EPL team (or even a EFL team for that matter)

you and many fans seem content to accept mediocrity as the status quo for the club, whilst those who seek ownership with the ambition and funding to take the club forward are deemed to be pant wetters and naysayers!

If Delia really had the best interest of the club at heart she would actively seek new investment, not set up a ‘self sustaining model’ and succession planning putting her pennilessness nephew in charge! It just stinks of the empress hanging on to power regardless of what’s best!

We are all at this moment in time quite rightly inconsolable and angry......I also imagine our majority shareholder will be shedding a minuscule tear into her glass of Moet de Socialista aboard the executive plane on her way back to Norfolk from Manchester.....

Prudence with ambition......Oh yeah.......

Glad to know they used air travel today. All being well Delia and Michael will be in their pyjamas soon enjoying a home made light supper and a fine glass of Pinot.

Don’t go then, sit in St Andrews Hall and whinge instead. The club doesn’t need negative nut jobs anyway

It is ran by them...

They'd much rather be on the M62 riding club cabbage smelling other folks stale flatulence and brushing crisp crumbs off their laps.....on that short road trip home......for sure....

Last season we sold our best players and spent scraps, she was so lucky Webber has the right team in place, she doesn’t deserve them

You do all realise that once auntie Delia does go it’s already set in stone who the replacement is! I don’t understand what will improve if she does go!

I like our owners.

And those that dont havent done anything but post vitriol on here and Facebook groups. The concept of actually trying to do something about it is thankfully lost on them.

Thus we have nothing to worry about on that front regardless what rubbish may or may not be posted about them on here.

How about a link to where she has expressed her keenness on getting promoted ? I seem to remember that Times interview where her and hubby were interviewed spent most of it criticising this division whenever it was mentioned.

For an owner that doesnt want to get promoted she doesnt half seem to end up...getting promoted.

Alot more often than a whole host of owners who claim theyre desperate to get promoted!

So if I don’t provide proof it means she doesn’t want to get promoted ? What a really strange view to have

This man has no excuse for his reasoning. Got to be related in some way or residing in a mental institution.

I am right in thinking that this will be 4 relegations from the Premier under her reign which sort of puts these promotions into perspective.

You expressed her keenness to get promoted so a link to where this has been portrayed should not be a problem surely ?

It is a **** division. Teams spend hundreds of millions of pounds to stand still and get zero silverwear. It's uncompetitive, it's dull and other than Leicester, nothing has given me any hope that it will ever change.

I believe we will shortly hold the record for relegations from the Premiere league. But remember the 16 year rule of other clubs success compared to ours and the top 26 model.

Agree with everything you say there, it’s a **** league, only the money motivates any team, even the FA cup is devalued now, how about giving the FA cup winners a champions league place to make that the glory competition it once was.

Yeah apart from, you cant get relegated without getting promoted first. So my point still stands, especially in comparison to you making up that Delia doesnt want to get promoted.

"You and many fans seem content to accept mediocrity as the status quo for the club".

The last twenty years or so have been many things but I would suggest that a status quo of 'mediocrity' isn't one of them.

Holy carp, is this our lot tonight - two mental threads with negative garbage idiocy on here and a stupidly positive thread from LDC?

Where is the thread for ‘balanced’ people? 

My thread was not remotely "stupidly positive".  We'll have better days than this one is basically what I said. If that isn't balanced, I don't know what is.

I did not say she does not want to be promoted. I questioned FF's assertion that she did and asked for a link which is not the same as what you have claimed i said.

As much as I enjoyed last season i admit I've checked out a bit this year. It's not been remotely enjoyable except for the odd game. I really like this team and it's gutting to watch them sink almost every week, I'm not sure Delia is the one to blame though, as far as I'm aware nobody has offered to buy the club since last May, we did try to spend a bit of money but lost out on 2 targets on deadline day and physically we are all wrong for this league. I don't see where Delia comes into it tbh.
