    Now they've taken him back again! This is what happens when two clusterfucks of teams attempt to do business.

    Woke up this morning to see the local press reporting "Breaking: staff appear to have been paid". The fact that that requires a breaking news story is quite depressing.

    General staff have been paid, players haven't. Well, that's bound to motivate them to play well tomorrow! (Not that they need much motivation to be inept)

    We were nearly in administration about 10 years ago and we had a new ground to pay for!

    The worst thing is that they literally have no assests anymore as everything was flogged off and Bates took his money like he always does and ran.

    Must be so frustrating for Leeds fans as this seems like a never ending cycle.

    The thing many fans find most baffling is that Cellino was happy to pay £25m for 75% of the club. Apart from McCormack and Byram, who might be worth £8-10m for the pair, we have no assets of any worth at all, and even their worth is largely offset by outstanding debts. £25m for 75% of something completely worthless beyond a potential for a brand seems like a lot of money to pay.

    Last night a Leeds fan found Cellino's number on a publicly available legal document, gave him a call and recorded it. It can be listened to here, or a written transcript is here.

    At some point I'll stop being surprised at how much more surreal this manages to keep getting, but this really is a new level. I still don't think I want him running my club, because he's clearly completely insane, but he might be my new favourite person, and provides great entertainment, and a staggering number of expletives.

    Some choice quotes:

    (on current club MD David Haigh) "David is a son of a bitch, heís a witch, heís dangerous, heís a fucking devil"

    ďKen Bates! Ken Bates is still behind the shit you know that?Ē

    "With a shit.. fucking shit team. You got a shit team. The worst team I ever saw in my life."

    (on how much the fans are charged) "Too much. They get ripped off. You donít need money you need some money cause Ken Bates steal your money thatís the problem."

    "The fans, theyíre not for sale. They are feelings, you donít buy feelings. You can buy a bitch, for one night, but you donít buy the love, my friend."

    (on why he blocked McCormack's deadline day transfer request) "It's like if you have a bar, and you sell your refrigerator to buy the beer. Where you fucking put the beer if you donít own a refrigerator any more?"

    (on Luke Murphy's pay level) "they bought a player last year from League One. I donít remember his name. And they paid, the player, one million and a half. From League One. And they give him £22,000 a week. Fuck me! He wages was thousand seven hundred pounds a week, they give him £22,000 a week. From League One. Are you fucking crazy?"

    Good start.

    Police have been called in to investigate allegations from Cellino that GFH/Haigh had used money stolen from club funds to install hidden surveillance cameras in the boardroom and toilets.

    Haigh has resigned.

    "Statements from the new owners have left me with no choice but to resign."

    Presumably statements like "he tried to blackmail me" and "he put a hidden camera in my toilet".

    Onuoha seens like he's good enough for the likes of Southampton or someone.

    Some finish. Boring game though. Don't see QPR staying up if they manage promotion.

    Just testing the water as it looks as though we (Norwich) will be joining you again in a few weeks (if that).

    It might be a bit odd to look forward to relegation but I've re-he-ally missed the games against Ipswich. The games against Leeds should also be interesting, seeing as we still have half of their old team - although I'm sure your Hulls and Swanseas will come in for players like Johnson and Snodgrass before then.

    No idea who our manager will be - Malky, perhaps?

    Anyway - looking forward to seeing you all very soon!

    Not a league match but the Grimsby vs Gateshead first playoff leg is a good match so far. Fingers crossed for another now Grimsby have equalized.

    Birmingham stay up!

    A draw against Derby is the same as a win, right? Felt like it after 10 straight defeats. Glad that season's over. Let's pretend it never happened.

    Wycombe going down, thanks mainly to the idiot Oxford striker who got himself sent off when they were 1-0 up.
