Imagine a situation whereby two people stick £20 million of their £30million fortune in to a business. Basically, they have put two thirds of everything they own on the line to save what is a vloundering business which they know they will never get an investment return from.
Now imagine a businessman worth £1.7 billion comes along, he says he wants to stick £20 million in to that business but is not prepared to pay couple in full for the £20 million they invested in the business in the first place. Instead, he wants them to make a loss on the venture.
Then this very rich man withdraws his offer and lets the customers of this business hound the couple through the media in an attempt to make their lives so miserable that they will sell for a loss and people will forget the enormous debt they are actually owed.
Now put this in to context.
As I see it Michaee Wynn Jones and Delia Smith saved Norwich city from going to the wall several years ago. The club was minutes from being closed down by the banks and they, along with many others, saved the club. Since then Norwich have relied on Delia's money and Delia's name in order to keep going whilst Delia and her husband pour millions on to the club, in fact two thirds of their money, in order to keep the club going.
Then along comes Peter Cullum, a man worth £1.7 billion. Now he does not want to spend two thirds of his money on the club. He claims he wants to invest £20million as a cash injection in to the club BUT does not appears to want to pay Delia and her husband back the full value of their shares (and significant loans). Instead, this very rich man wants Norwich on the cheap.
Now Norwich fans are hounding Delia and her husband thorough the press, they are trying to make her feel pressured in to selling and forget that she has invested most of everything she owns in the club when others failed to do so. These fans want Delia to sell, at any cost to her, and knowing she will not get back all her money, because a very rich man wants to put a tiny amount of his money in to the club.
Really, some Norwich fans should be ashamed of themselves.
