Watched the sky coverage last night and found what cc said quite interesting. The chairman runs the club as a family not a business, which came across as a criticism of not releasing players. It's the reason we're in trouble with the ffp stuff but then again looking at the bench and injury list, it might not have been that bad a strategy.

I hope he doesn't run it anything like my family as I cant stand most of them.

At least if he did he might actually sell a few.

 

It's very concerning if DC is letting sentimentality get in the way of running the club prudently.

Football is a temporary game. Chansiri needs to change his philosophy.

There are very few clubs in all the leagues that aren't selling ones. It's just common sense to see that's the reality of the situation. Every player purchase should have a cost/benefit analysis performed with clear ideas as to why, beyond the player improving the 1st team/squad, the purchase is being made. There are lots of variables - future development potential, investment/sell on potential, etc but at our level a large percentage of the playing staff should be seen as assets where their value is expected to appreciate and therefore improve the club's finances once they are moved on. That's the world that we exist in, it's a reality, so its pretty foolish to not model your business plan on it.

Bruce will tell him what's what. 

Will not be happening anymore trust me.

100% agree with that, hes a proper manager not a coach, probably one of the factors he wanted to come to us in such a precarious position is knowing that we've lacked proper management in all the areas off the pitch he has experience handling, may take him a year or two but he will sort us out, if he cant no one can.

Which players? Most of the main culprits like Abdi, Jones, Matias and Boyd will all be released in the summer anyway.

 

The stalwarts we have Westwood, Lees, Hutch, Bannan etc have generally all continued to perform when they’ve been picked

It needs some form of mascot, with a bright, easily recognisable image. Maybe a redhead?

Never was a family to either of the past two, just a means to an end..... The chairman showed his side by allowing Steve Bruce time.

Whilst we were all sheite scared at was was happening.......   it's true, it may well just pay off when all comes good again.

I agree. We must be patient with Bruce. He has a big job to do and we should give him as long as he needs. DC will back him financially when the FFP debacle is sorted but that is going to take some time.

Why not let fans into the family firm then buy offering us chance to buy voting shares with discount incentives just like old B shares?

 

This would also improve financial footing to fund football and Brucey's brilliant management.

 

Ditto new Academy facilities / ground that Steve wants and Chansiri has spent little on (though excluded from FFP).

Believe this is a route that Norwich have gone down in order to fund new state of the art academy facilities.

 

Get feeling that DC likes to preach "family" but only when it suits.

DC will be well aware what has happened in the past with share ownership and supporters groups, rightly or wrongly I doubt he would entertain that idea

Hopefully he will stop running it as a family and more of a business from now on. He’s finally got an excellent manager in so that’s a very good start.
