    I know, why on earth would anyone want Aguero, Silva et al, League titles and Champions League football.

    These people are ridiculous.

    Doesn't surprise me you would like it.

    For me, it's ruining football. The divide is getting bigger. When Norwich start paying players £250,000 a week, I'll stop bothering.

    Good lord yarco, for a second there I thought that read ´Delia is Leaving´ - I don´t want a heart-attack on top of pneumonia. :(
    Me too, in fact, probably well before then. <ok>

    It amazes me how some people fail to see just how lucky we are to have Delia and Michael as our club-loving owners! <doh>

    "Delia's Gone"
    Delia, oh, Delia Delia all my life
    If I hadn't have shot poor
    Delia I'd have had her for my wife
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

    I went up to Memphis
    And I met Delia there Found her in her parlor
    And I tied to her chair
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

    She was low down and trifling
    And she was cold and mean
    Kind of evil make me want to Grab my sub machine
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

    First time I shot her I shot her in the side
    Hard to watch her suffer
    But with the second shot she died
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

    But jailer, oh, jailer Jailer,
    I can't sleep 'Cause all around my bedside
    I hear the patter of Delia's feet
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

    So if you woman's devilish
    You can let her run
    Or you can bring her down and do her
    Like Delia got done
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

    I´m afraid the people that are ridiculous are those who think there is some sort of merit in buying their way to success, there never has been any, whatsoever, it´s just a shame that there are so many greedy people involved with football these days, who think there is.

    and KIO, I wish, once and for all, you would shut up calling good, honest, loyal supporters, ´happy clappers´ just because they don´t happen to agree with your ( somewhat and often) outrageous views. I don´t know what you think entitles you to label folk you´ve never even met, that way, but I think it must have run its course by now.

    Some say that if you are critical of the board or club that you are not a proper fan, but two of you will stop supporting us if we happen to start paying and competing at the top end? I don't know you foul weather fans!
    Firstly I don't believe it, if you think that sort of money will ruin Norwich then I'm afraid to say that horse has bolted with others already doing so the game is ruined already and right now it is a ruined football world we can't compete in. Not at PL level anyway. I'm with Carrabuh and KIO, I'd be thrilled to be watching a messi, Ronaldo or Aguero in their pomp playing for us, I'd love to see us win a league title, play in europe again and play breath taking football. It may feel slightly cheapened by being financed by a foreign billionaire, but why not? We cannot compete as is. Do you not dare to dream? If you won the lottery would you reject the winnings?
    A rich benefact is like a big lottery win i suppose. Some folks carry on as normal still working in the factory, maybe they are happy that way, maybe they know no different, may be they lack the imagination to live a potentially better life. Others will live in a new affordable luxury without any risk but have a very nice and comfy life, maybe not hitting the highs of the totally frivalous as they drive their 0-62 in 6 secs mercedes, but they won't crash. Now the frivalous will spend like crazy, as they buy their 0-62 in 3 secs Veyron they will get some pant wetting excitment but they have a much higher chance of crashing.
    Unfortunitely the PL is the home of some owners who will live like the flivalous lottery winner and we cannot compete with that. Some spend like the frivalous lottery winner but are living within the sort of means that mean they are in the comfortable spend zone. Would I like that for Norwich? Hell yeah! Am I in a hurry to see the back of Delia, no not really. I dare to dream but also know that new ownership can have some serious pitfalls. Like forest says "Outragiously rich foreign owners are like a box of chocolates........"

    Bah!

    A slightly pedantic point, but surely clubs have always tried to buy success- the clubs with larger fan bases bought better players- just look at the record transfer fees over the past decades. Teams that haven't had huge benefactors have relied on astute business acumen or flagrant creative accounting. It is not a recent phenomena, but one that has increased in magnitude

    When one begins to look at the so called little teams achieving success they too of course had some level of investment. Even Forest paid the highest amount every for a goalkeeper and paid for the first million pound footballer. Leicester have had a huge injection of cash.

    Norwich have also invested, some good acquisitions some less good ones- In other words teams have always tried to buy success to relative degrees

    My question is " what level of investment is too much?" it is not a black and white argument. (I say this as someone who thinks the level of cash in football is abhorrent)[/QUOTE]

    Excellent point, I think we all think that the sums of money being payed are riddiculous, but as long as the club isn't risked, the fans can still afford to attend (That is getting questionable as things stand!) then I don't see the problem. If we must pay more to compete and have an owner that can do so then why would that be a problem? Like anything Norwich, I want the best we can get, I would like a better striker, I'd like another great CH to partner Tim and I'd like a new owner too if they enabled the two previous wishes!

    Bah!

    As you say Melchy, football has been totally ruined by money, and idealist I might be, but quite honestly, if I had to choose between our club being taken over by some multi-milllionaire owner, just to join the money bandwagon, or the possibility of it folding, then I´d rather it stuck to its principles, and folded - not that that scenario is particularly realistic, but certainly the scenario we have at the moment, between maintaining a PL status, but only with a rich owner, or forever yo-yoing between the top two divisions, or more probably residing in the Championship with our present owners, then give me the second option any time.

    Turning us into a Man C or a Chelsea, just wouldn´t be the Norwich I´ve supported all my life, nor would it be a Norwich I would want to support, and any success we might achieve, purely through having some extra financial clout, would be the hollowest imaginable.

    ......oh, and incidentally, if I won the lottery ( which I´ve never taken part in) I´d almost certainly give it all away. If money meant that much to me, I´d have been doing it well before now, that´s for sure.
