Fans defend “legend” Delia Smith after Norwich City supporters urged her to sell and leave

Football fans rushed to show their support for “legend” Delia Smith after some Norwich City fans demanded that she sell her stakes in the club.

Culinary Icon, 80, is the joint majority shareholder of the sick Canary Islands, who are currently sitting at the end of the Premier League after losing the last five games.

Despite the club advancing to the fourth round of the FA Cup after beating Charlton League One 1-0 in The Valley, a group of frustrated fans protested in front of Carrow Road and accused Delia of having “no ambition and no fight” and called for her leaving the club.

The national culinary treasure, which has been educating the nation about the basics of cooking for decades, such as boiling eggs, has been seen by many people who have advocated its position on Twitter, saying they need to “show some respect”.

In 2005, the star showed how excited she is for the Canary Islands when she famously shouted “Let’s have you” to the fans during the half-time of the Premier League match against Manchester City.

Subcaster and author Jake Humphrey wrote of the protests: “Delia out? Great idea! Free up a line of billionaires ready to fund the club … … only that there are none !!!!

“And if football has taught us anything in recent years, then it’s the principle that responsible owners are more important than the rich.”

Another Delia fan said she wasn’t the cause of the club’s performance problems and wrote: ‘I agree we need a change to move forward now, but that’s not the way, Delia is a legend, show a little respect. ‘

Some have accused young fans of having unrealistic expectations, with one Twitter user writing: “The sad fact is that most young football fans have that view. Everyone wants billionaire owners and success EVERY year. He thinks real life is as easy and unrealistic as playing FIFA or Football Manager. ”

Another agreed, adding: “Too many people have seen what is happening in the City and want it for their club.

“The money City spent increased the level in the game and the expectations of the fans to the point of instability. The league is no longer competitive and fans are unhappy that their club cannot compete. “

However, others were more sympathetic to the suffering of the protesters, and one wrote: “These young fans saw nothing but that our club is a complete laughter in the top competition, not only is it coming down, but everyone is laughing at us. Is it that bad they want more? ”

Another added: “Fans want them to try and compete. Brentford came too. Why is it so bad to want your team not just promoted to come back down. It’s every year. ”

The third simply wrote: ‘Change is needed, we are not going anywhere. Delia ven. ”

The current protests are not the first time Delia has been controversial during her time in Norwich City. In 2005, she infamously entered the field at halftime during the match against Manchester City.

During an impromptu speech in which she tried to gather fans, Delia shouted: “This is a message for perhaps the best fans in the world. We need a 12th man. Where are you? Where are you? Let’s go with you. “

In a statement released in the days following the match, which Norwich lost 3: 2, she explained: team.’

Delia added that she might not have chosen the best words in the heat.

Recently, the culinary power was seen apparently dormant during last year’s match against Newcastle. The TV camera recorded a star that appeared to be asleep during a 1: 1 draw last November.
