One in a hundred away fans will have to drop their trousers and hear the sound of a latex glove being put on from what I have heard

Anyone wants me to take their tickets off their hands I'd gratefully oblige as presently looking to be forced to sit on my hands with my Chelski lot in the Matthew Harding...chewing on 5 gobstoppers.

Another situation that arises when the Club doesn't act responsibly - the potential for disturbances.

Not sure how you’ll persuade them to let you do that to them, but whatever turns you on 😳

I take it Gilmour is ineligible yet the club website reviews the game with a picture of him.

Is this more heinous than BK8?

Thought for the day.

If Norwich City paid the £30 admission fee for every away fan at every away game this season at the maximum allotted allocation the cost of about £1.6 million would be about the same as the interest paid to bondholders when in the Premier League last time, in that season there are were 740 bondholders including Board and Executive members and 8,000 away members.

Personally, I think that eligibility to the £30 payment should be limited to those who missed out on the bond issue, back in 2018, because they were holidaying, with no Wi-Fi, but only if they have group 5 relations for this season, so missed out on a family outing to London during the weekend of 22nd and 23rd October. Any leftover monies can be added to the January transfer window budget.

Any support for this particular idea? 😉

But that definition is so broad I doubt there can be many fans it doesn't apply to! Far from adding money to the transfer budget it would potentially be taking away millions of pounds.🤓

Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.

If it offends people so much I would be happy to agree to stay away myself as part of such a deal which would have been a great football community gesture in the context of the pandemic. How would its popularity and finances compare with the shirt sponsorship issue? Not that I believe the decision in the latter was wrong - in my view it wasn't but how do the fan engagement networks demonstrate democracy?

Good luck to all the Norwich pilgrims travelling this morning. Did we take the full allocation offered?

And presumably it would somehow result in us having the funding to improve Conley. Or is this yet more drivel?

What is the question?

The Club initially spent £5 million on the Colney project. According to a recent statement from its Business and Projects Executive it is now going to spend a further unspecified amount. As fans we have to rely on their business judgement and explanations on this matter given its specialist football nature.

What is undeniably true is that the near £2 million interest award including a 25% promotion bonus to finance the first £5million tranche is a truly excessive cost of capital. Even if this argument is not accepted, a little creativity on the Clubs part could have resulted in the largesse being spread much more widely across its expansive supporter base.

A very nice gesture on your part  to ask about the welfare of a fellow member though I must be careful not to deploy the lowest form of wit.

I thought you and I shared a commitment to help other members in their enquiries and I was duly obliging with Commonsense who in fairness has generally lived up to his name though he maybe demonstrating some hostility to me having been unduly influenced by others.

Is that why you've bought a hundred and one tickets?.....to increase your  chances 😉😇👍

So it IS all about you then !! Just using others as a smokescreen. 

Ethics?  ..Hmmmmm.... how very Boris of you.

Further to my previous response, a fan with no connection to myself asked at one of the away consultation sessions why more fans weren't given the opportunity in respect of the bond scheme. The Business and Projects officer responded though I don't believe she mentioned at the outset that she and her husband had invested as I later discovered from the Board at Colney. Perhaps best practice Corporate Governance would have demanded such an upfront declaration?

The bond was open to everyone. With a limited date / limit, whichever was reached first. That was very clear. 

If you don't move fast enough you miss out. I was interested, but didn't move before it sold out. Thats my fault.

You're accusing the board of not applying hindsight,  surely.

Another stick?

Absolutely. They are clearly all loyal Norwich fans being in Groups 1, 2 and 3 aside from match picks and the latter fully deserve their reward to if their choice was Chelsea.

Precisely. That is exactly what happened to me. I missed out because I wasn't quick enough. The level of support for it took me by surprise but still I should have acted quicker.
