Seen her a lot at games next to Sullivan, presumed it was his wife.

But yes, classy bunch aren't they.

I also enjoyed Jordan Hugill saying Norwich has much better training facilities than West Ham, ours would be the worst in the Premier League really.

Interesting article in the Athletic today about Joseph DaGrosa looking to buy an EPL team.

He was the former owner of Bordeaux and sold after 12 months, didn't go very well.

He's been trying to buy a controlling stake in Southampton but hasn't been able to agree on a price with the Chinese owner.

Crystal Palace, Newcastle and even West Ham being mentioned as alternative targets. I'd be very much buyer beware considering his track record and how badly American Owners seem to have gone in the EPL in general really....

The Athletic is reporting American investors from California are buying Ipswich for 17.5M, and Paul Cook will replace Paul Lambert when it goes through.

Lot of potential in that club for that price if it goes well.

Has anyone said spending money guarantees trophies? It doesn't, but there's very few sides that have won trophies without spending big. Leicester is the only example in recent years, they then lost Kante to Chelsea and Mahrez to City.

Your perception of what big spending is, is warped and could only be held by someone who supports a massive club like yours. Even your go to example of Spurs had a wage bill of 148 million. For perspective, Norwich and Sheffield United had a wage bill of 13 million.

Tell me how can Norwich and Sheffield United can compete for trophies under FFP?
Prince Abdullah, whose side were officially relegated from the Premier League on Saturday after losing at Wolves, appeared to join the condemnation of the idea.

"May be a quick idea to kill this super league," he wrote on Twitter.

"FIFA and local federations tell those clubs, [if] you don’t back off your players are free agents and can sign for any other team.
