  • Everything has a price nowadays and the only question is whether you are prepared to pay it or no. Who knows what NL's demands would have been and whether they would have been acceptable to NCFC??

  • Yes Cecil, I was wrong, but having seen Sherwood twice within 3 days at Hethersett Rd and being told by clerical staff (who are party to these decisions), i passed on what I believed to be true. But I was not wrong about Holt and told you all he was leaving a full 2 weeks before ANYONE else, nor was I wrong when i named RVW as "Norwich's international signing" a full 3 days before this or any other paper even got near the story. Watch this space re CelticNorwichLennon. PS I wont bother telling you who Bassongs signed for as you know already !

  • I don't know who pmd is or how he gets his 'information'. He told us that Sherwood was going to be our next manager and he was wrong. To interview a number of candidates as part of the selection process is sensible and proper. To have chosen NA might not have been sensible; that remains to be seen.

  • pubmandave - I have to believe that there is an element of truth in what you say. IF Neil Adams was their choice of Manager they would have appointed him immediately at the end of the season or at the end of their first deadline which they missed. So something other than McNally's story was definitely going on. It does seem that this Board will always go for the "cheap" option and continually do everything DOWN to a cost rather than UPTO a required standard. A man is installed who achieved 1 point from a possible 15 in his five games in charge.

  • Unbelievable, if you're right, that's despicable. For one, I really wanted him here, but are you sure about this, he strikes me as pretty intelligent? If we have done the dirty on him, I hope he sues us, but for now, I'll keep an open mind.

    Bill Punton's bald patch

    Saturday, May 24, 2014

  • Last year I was very nearly sacked for disclosing Holt's move a full 2 weeks before he left Norwich, but I believe the paying supporters of NCFC should know the truth. On the 14th May a 'deal' was done that would see Tim Sherwood installed as manager, however on the following weekend he contacted NCFC and difficulties were raised over his home in Borehamwood, his children's schooling and how NCFC would handle this. On the following Monday NCFC made contact with Neil Lennon, and as his contract with Celtic prohibited him talking to any other club whilst he was employed by Celtic, he handed his notice in at Celtic, comfortable in the belief that the Norwich job was his. Norwich City then went back on promises they had made to Neil Lennon, and decided his wage demands were outside their limit etc. Sadly they the board then took the cheapest on offer, a man whose claim to fame is winning a youth competition and getting Norwich relegated. The Lennon sage is far from over and he has appointed solicitors to seek compensation as he gave his notice in at Celtic on the promise of the Norwich job. Remember, you heard it here first

  • Its clear that the available high profile choices for the gaffers job are happy to sit it out and wait for another opportunity. The way the PL works it won't be long before the first head rolls and silly money is offered, let them get on with it. We do not have enough time to wait as we need to secure the best players we have, get shot of those who cost us dearly and secure some talent for next year, thats a lot of work!! The board have been light weight and will need to be sorted out however for now we have a team to build. As mother would say its time to P... or get off the pot.

  • Is anyone else really chuffed that we've got Michael Bailey reporting for us, and hosting chats for us? All the talk flying around about people 'getting us' as a club, for my money MB, Dave & SDP typify that nicely. I know this sounds a little sycophantic, but hey-ho I think they deserve some credit from us.
