Interesting read .... and illustrates how little Evans has invested compared to other owners of Championship Clubs......

Makes for as devastating a read as the league table. Worth noting that most teams have not been in the Championship for those full 10 years, I believe only Town, Derby and Forrest have been.

The lack of investment is staggering, it can mean one of only a few things:

- Evans has wanted out and has spent nearly the whole time trying to sell the club
- Evans has merely been holding on and hoping for a miracle
- There's not much going on between his ears
- He just doesn't care one iota about any of it

As much as I detest the bloke, I don't think he's an idiot, that rules out the last 3, leaving only him wanting out for a very long time. Problem is, he could be as tight and as bad at selling as he is at buying. Marcus, you have to cut your losses and sell the club, otherwise it will just slowly devalue and go to the grave with you.

sh*t man, where's my happy pills!!

Already depressed so made no damn difference what was presented. Took a view of the issue and there's so much information to be had it's difficult to fit in into one visit. Requires substantial time to ascertain what was being forwarded, but take nothing away, that was a good find and provides a comprehensive insight into goings on within the club structure.

It's been said before, I'll say it again : under Marcus Evans this club can never hope or expect to compete within a satisfactory capacity, either in way of purchasing players that are good enough, or the ambition or dedication to take the club back to it's once previous stature. Why the f*ck he fails to realize year after year the majority of the fanbase are unambiguously against him and won't vacate his position only he knows. Can't put one definitive answer to it.

Some mention over time he has a secret desire to ruin the club or intends to (or has) put the club name into such disarray he must be a Norwich City fanatic (or indeed some warped desire to bury the club name) have (invariably) seemed far fetched, but just lately such an idea doesn't always seem so fanciful.
