Meet The Stupidest Man In Football

One day this man may regret his petty behaviour.

One day this man may regret his petty behaviour.

Let me introduce you to Robbie Cowling, the Chairman of Colchester United Football Club, a man who is so angry at Norwich City that he is going to let his hate stop him from making SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND POUNDS on January 16, 2010. That’s when Colchester United host Norwich City in League One.

United’s home, the Weston Homes Community Stadium, holds 10,000 punters and this season they have averaged around 4,500 a game. That leaves 5,500 empty seats. Colchester United have given Norwich just 1,900 tickets, leaving 3,600 seats– seats that Norwich fans would snap up if they were available, and seats that would bring Colchester the 64,000 smackers.

That’s a lot of money for a tiny club like Colchester in this economic climate, don’t you think? You need only read our ‘broke ass Tuesday’ posts yesterday for proof of how the recession is catching up with football.

So why is Cowling refusing to sell out his ’stadium’? Well, it’s simple, he is a child– a bitter, angry immature juvenile.

Cowling is still angry over manager Paul Lambert’s departure from Colchester to Norwich, a move that Cowling himself agreed to. Sure, he had no choice: Lambert wanted to leave for a bigger club. But ever since Cowling has done nothing but complain and act in a puerile manner, like a toddler throwing a fit in the supermarket.

When Lambert moved from the U’s to Norwich, Cowling and Norwich Chief Executive David McNally couldn’t agree on a fee, so the mutual understanding was that Lambert would leave and compensation discussions would carry on until there was a mutual arrangement. That’s when Cowling got stupid and greedy, asking for a ridiculous sum for Lambert’s services. At that point it’s best to go to arbitration and let the FA decide the sum.

Recently, Cowling has been obnoxious, spouting publicly how Norwich stole his manager and that the club should be docked points. If this idiot had a brain, he would have agreed to a fee up front before letting his man leave; instead he has all the business sense of Freddie Laker. Now he wants to lose out on 64,000 smackers out of spite? What a tit.

Cowling has been fueling what he calls a ‘derby’ (Ipswich is our only real derby; Colchester are just a small team 55 miles away) over the last few days, telling all who will listen how much he wants to win the game and how important it is for him to beat us:“I’m not sure I have ever wanted to win a game of football so badly, therefore, on this occasion, I will do everything in my power to stack whatever odds I can in our favour and if that does mean an empty seat rather than an away supporter then so be it”.

Norwich Chairman Alan Bowkett yesterday criticized Cowling’s actions:“We urge them to reconsider their decision, as it seems a shame to potentially stop Norwich City supporters who want to go and watch the game from doing so when the demand is clearly there. Ban me from the match but not our fantastic and vocal fans!”

Earlier this season, Colchester handed the extra tickets to Leeds for the clash at the tiddly Weston Homes ground, but it appears that Cowling is scared of what effect 6,000 or so singing Norwich fans will have on the outcome of a game he is deperate to win. Pathetic really. Maybe he should worry about why he can’t sell the seats to Colchester fans week-in, week-out instead.

When we stuff Cowling’s team, I hope the papers make note of how much money he could have had if he wasn’t acting like an acrimonious idiot.

Up the City!

Great work Ned. Makes a lot of good points without resorting to the name calling that is all to prevalent in the posts from the  supporters of our tiny neighbours.

ye what a great article, someone''s been collecting facts. I''ll address one of your many mistakes, we haven''t given you an extra allocation because we will sell it out ourselves. There around 2000 tickets left with a month untill the game which we fully expect to sell, there''s nothing we want more than to beat you AGAIN

Well that''s ironic because there''s nothing we care less about than your lot. We have considerably bigger fish to fry. Isn''t it interesting that you evidently have no real footballing rivalry, such is your irrelevance and lack of any history, that you have to try and manufacture a rivalry with a considerably bigger team up the road. I pity you really.

This game is Lambert''s return and also we beat you 7-1 last time, hence its a huge game for a small club like us. This won''t be a permanent rivalry, once Lambert walks out on you because he recieves a better offer the hatred will probably die out

Sell it yourselves? Only with Norwich fans in the home sections. Your gates this year suggest different. Or are you saying that Colchester fans are fair weather supporters who crawl out of the wood work only when roused by their idiotic Chairman?

But Ned it doesn''t matter whether we will sell them or not. It''s our ground, it''s our home game and we can do what we like with tickets providing we give you at least the minimum the Football League require us to and we are giving you nearly double that.

Issue is with your chairman discriminating against our club !I think we should take this to the FA and demand a points reduction !See if we got the correct amount of tickets that shows our status properly we wouldnt be moaning.We cant get even 1% of our support down to your garden shed while you have the whole village attending and still have acres of space !

Exactly - if it''s such a small game then your fans won''t be bothered about missing it will they. After all if we are your smallest game since Yeovil you won''t need more tickets than enough for the 1000 odd fans you took down there will you.

No, as I recall you were too busy chucking season tickets at the old one and booing the players off the pitch.
