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


Up the City!

We should let this go now,  its giving him the oxygen he craves.  I really dont care about him at all.  

And as the ground was sold out there was no loss of revenue anyway??

''We should let this go now, its giving him the oxygen he craves''.

Hear Hear! Can we just let this Cowling thing go? He has more ''Hot Buttons'' to press than most of us will ever have! - if we keep pressing them he wil keep coming to life.

Like a demented toy, let''s leave him in a darkened cupboard until his batteries fade and those who currently play with him will eventually throw him out...

Apologies for the clichés - I''m a tad excited about the prospect of going top of the league!
