Borrow borrow borrow, borrow the boys in yellow

Mike Grant, Capital Canaries I didn't go on Tuesday. Why? I have been worn down by false promises bought on by players reflecting in the glory of a successful result. Remember going 11th after we beat Sheffield United and our dropped captain stating we were a top six side? Cue woeful performances and a sharp drop down the table.

I didn't go on Tuesday.

Why? I have been worn down by false promises bought on by players reflecting in the glory of a successful result.

Remember going 11th after we beat Sheffield United and our dropped captain stating we were a top six side?

Cue woeful performances and a sharp drop down the table. I also blame the steady decline in our club since the Premiership season, the lack of hope (will we ever be able to compete at this level again, let alone the Premiership) and the feeling that I'm no longer that important or relevant to our club.

Forget the 24,000 that turn up, it's boardroom politics and those with cash that matter these days.

When we were winning this league there was a togetherness that stretched from boardroom to the stands. We were told (or it seemed we were) what was going on and we invested in a team we could be proud of. These days it seems as though we're an irritant, to an increasingly defensive board and groups such as the SCG are told not to discuss issues with fellow fans.

I also put my dwindling passion down to the fact that Roeder has to beg, borrow and . . . beg for a team, and we are told it's a good thing because we can get rid of them without much cost if no new investment is found. I no longer believe the prudence with ambition approach. It plainly does not work (78th out of 92 remember).

I admit to using the current credit crunch as an excuse not to travel to my beloved Carrow Road, when in fact it's the appalling entertainment we are served and the fact that it has not improved in YEARS!

Why is it we can get so much right off the pitch yet are so badly advised on it. It's the team that matters and I can't see any improvements at all (odd good results can't make up for still being 19th).

Now, I have nothing but respect for a certain Stowmarket Two and the millions they have loaned but is it wise to put a club in a position that is unattractive and too expensive for any new potential billionaire.

How is that to the benefit of our club and it's supporters?

The result on Tuesday was fantastic (Typical. I decide to miss a game and they win 5-2!) and I hope we go on an extended run of positive results but remember, come January that improving team may well find itself missing three or four key members (unless a generous Carl Moore or three appear on the horizon) as they are returned to their clubs, fitter and more saleable, all ready for a club with ambition to buy.
