"Anyway, what abysmal status quo? We have a virtually new team compared to a year ago, so things have not stood still, the club has developed a whole new approach, based on footballing people making the important decisions"

Things off the pitch have improved to a degree and the squad is better. The manager is completely failing with the tools at his disposal and therefore should be replaced at the earliest opportunity.

"And how does your "status quo" somehow benefit the majorty shareholders?"

It benefits Delia Smith because NCFC is a vehicle for her own ends to keep her in the public eye. The club is not benefiting form her selfish behaviour. "Are you fooled by those who say they are taking money out of the club?"

No. But if she does not wish to invest, then she should sell to somebody that does. Again, the club is not benefiting from her presence. "Are you somehow unable to accept that it is perfectly natural to pass on their assets to family members and who have brought them onboard to get the necessary experience?"

Norwich City is a Football Club. Not a Grandfather Clock.

Unfortunately, the ways of the world are as they are. The majority shareholders are there because they put their money into the shares and they own them, so what they do with them is up to them and passing them on to a family member and protecting with some kind of trust (which is what they stated will happen) is perfectly sensible. They have even brought said family member on to the board to get the necessary experience.

If at some point a suitable investor comes along, then that is different, but plainly they set a high bar for anyone who might be interested - that imo is a good thing.

If you think Gunn would have had the same effect as Lambert, then you truly are living in cloud cuckoo land.

LDC - you are making it very easy for people to take the pee out of you - in fact, you may well be a troll out for a laugh. But don't tell real fans how they have to behave or accuse them of not being real fans because they can see the club they love rotting away in front of their eyes. Rather than being promotion contenders (which we would be if we were run and managed properly) we were under the cosh by the worst Ipswich team in history, who are bottom of the league, with a manager out of his depth and a 94 year old striker. Zero ambition is not something I will ever accept as a fan. We have Fake, Fake Klopp in charge, looking helpless on the touchline, Webber who got a bit lucky at Huddersfield under the impression that he can buy a load of average (if that) Germans and the same thing will happen at Norwich and owners who don't care what the fans want, are happy to turn up, smoke fags and drink wine, entertain their luvvie friends, take a nice bit of money out of club (whilst cashing in on the Norwich connection on adverts) and pass it on the civil-servant young Tom who has no clue and no money.

Rotting away? Are you having a laugh?  No team is a walk over and Ipswich were unbeaten at home this season. Farke and Webber are doing their best to create somethng for us and Farke himself has made perfectly logical decisons in the last few games. He is a deep thinker and involving the young players on Sunday was part of a strategy to get them all involved before the international break (imo).

So we have good players, a good coach but only 5 points and no win in 11 away games.... why is this if all is rosy? I wish I had the answers but maybe someone else (lakey?) has....

4 away games, 1 win 2 draws and 1 defeat.
The win against a prem team.
Tragic!

I wonder if he's alone in that or if loads of us actually post the same old nonsense day in day out? How varied do you imagine your posts to be?

Keep going LDC......it’s fun to watch.

But you’re not wrong, with a few seasons of building now, not selling the next young talent we could well be a top half championship team.

But I don’t agree that this current team is anywhere near as good as you think it is, our youngsters have a very promising future and should they all fulfill their potential with a couple decent additions we could be up there in three or four years.

It’s going to take time to build again and we still have Klose, Pinto, Oliviera and Jarvis on our wages, once these are off then we can really see how the squad will be built.

As for changing Farke, nope he’s focused on our youth and doing a damn fine job with the restrictions he’s enduring.

We didn’t lose, we gained another point closer to safety, anoth game without being beaten by the binners and more game time to our youngsters in a high pressure atmosphere.

Lower your expectations and enjoy the football.

At the moment not at all varied, I post things as I see it and in my eyes the club is very much on a downward trajectory now. I can’t post that all is rosy in the garden when I don’t believe that to be the case.
But I’m not starting several new threads every day that all say the same thing though.

Re: Don't believe the negative hype!

If Farke was such a wonder Coach he would have a style / Tactic that is producing far more on the Pitch than we are getting now
He has been here long enough now
Alex Neil got his style across very quickly to players that were not signed by him when he first came
Lambert had a lot of new players when he arrived signed before he got here but he got those to gel and play to his system
why Can Wonder coach Farke not get this team producing results ?

I think it was OUTRAGEOUS that we ever got shot of John Bowman; if anyone deserves a third season, he does.
