Muscle men are needed all over the pitch

Vic Hopes, NCISA Have you ever switched off the alarm at the crack of dawn, pulled the bedclothes over your head and said: “I just can't face work today?” You have? Good, because that's just how I feel about writing my piece for this week's Pink 'Un.

Have you ever switched off the alarm at the crack of dawn, pulled the bedclothes over your head and said: “I just can't face work today?” You have? Good, because that's just how I feel about writing my piece for this week's Pink 'Un.

I don't want to repeat how the Board, Worthy and Grant have collectively brought this great club to its knees.

The future looks bleak. Prudence, by trying to keep our hard-earned place in the Premiership with a squad short on quality and quantity, and then continuing the same policy these past two and a half years could be leading us quickly to League One and oblivion.

All this in the run up to the festive season!

As I write news is filtering through of a further loan signing, but he is another 21-year-old who is being asked to do a man's job and that is NOT what we so desperately need at Carrow Road right now. We need experience, height and muscle all over the pitch if we are to haul ourselves out of the relegation zone.

The one bright spot for me was last week when I hyped myself up to leave my home comforts behind to drive to Carrow Road for the special finance meeting for shareholders. I was but one of 11 present for what turned out to be a very interesting and informative gathering.

My thanks, therefore, go to Sean O'Hara and Neil Doncaster (who had another “late night at the office”) as they responded to the many and varied issues raised. Thanks too to the other 10 shareholders who all contributed to the evening.

Shame the meeting was held in the gloomy atmosphere of the Russell Allison lounge. It would have been much nicer to have been accommodated somewhere more comfortable. Like the Board room? A cup of coffee would have also been appreciated. You know, don't drink and drive.

One last point, whichever league we find ourselves in next season I will be among the first to renew my season ticket as I will continue to support my club “through thick and thin” as we say in Norfolk.
