I rather think he will.

Folk with big egos crave recognition and adoration.

He won't be seen ever again at Vale Park and his face will be recognised all around the other football league clubs.

He is now yesterday's man.

What sane club would have Gorm invest in them now? If the effect on Notts County fans is anything to go by no one will want to touch him with a bargepole.

 

Stick to hairdressing Norm. :smile:

To those who doubted what folk on here have been saying for a while about the previous owner's accounting practices, just read this from Carol in the Sentinel: "The income streams from anything on Vale Park will go directly into the club. That is a big change and will be very different as far as building the club up is concerned."

 

So buy a pie, a shirt, book a wedding, and you will be helping the club from now on. This didn't happen before.

I rather think he will too. You don't celebrate with fans like he did when we got promoted without caring what people think. He just wanted to be popular just like he did when he went to the supporters' bus after the Exeter game. Well, his reputation's in tatters now and his fan base is, well, shall we say rather diminished.

 

He may be hoping people will forget what he was like, but they won't. I've had sympathy for the Vale's plight from other club's supporters including Blackpool (now there's a coincidence) and Cambridge. They all know and his reputation will follow him around for a long, long time.

 

Well done, Norm, we all think you're great - for disappearing from our club forever.

Norman absolutely hated this process, and couldn't deal with his name being in the national press (in a negative way).

 

He was straight on the phone to the Guardian journalist after the big article came out.

 

I'm glad he's gone but you couldn't script some of the things he did/came out with. They literally defied any form of logic and reason. Part of me will miss the drunken Twitter rants.

Positives: he took us out of administration and at the time, no one else was willing to do that, so we can't re-write history and must accept that at least in the short term he did at that time keep our club alive. Negatives; far too many to list.....so let's just move on!
