Right then, let’s get straight to the point. Last night I, and by that I mean The Tuckster, got into a rather unseemly Twitter spat with “ExFleet St hack & broadcaster” Mick Dennis.

It went on for quite a while and started in the afternoon after I posted the article Report Suggests Norwich Have Paid €17m For Senegalese Striker.

I posted a link to the article on the @VitalNorwich twitter account and this then triggered the following response from Mick Dennis.

If you read Vital Norwich regularly then you’ll know that I never claim to be in the know but I do have a few angles around the club and get to hear a few bits and pieces. Some of those I report, others I don’t because I always have Norwich City’s best interests at heart. That’s because I am a fully paid up member of the Canary nation and have been for over forty years.

VN, if you’re here regularly you’ll know, is not full of cut n paste merchants and is about so much more than that.

For the record, the article that triggered Mick contains a link to a Turkish media outlet which claims Norwich have agreed to buy Senegalese Striker Mbaye Diagne for €17m.

Yes, seventeen million euros.

I know, it seems a bit rich to me too but as I wrote in the article, I’m willing to be proved wrong. Diagne looks seriously impressive, on paper by the way.

Anyway, back to the spat, I was immediately supported by members of the Canary Twitterati and for that, I’m grateful.

And then it went on a bit…

Joe Ferrari is Director of Communications at Norwich City, by the way.

And so it went on…

The bottom line here is that I’m writing about my football club and helping to facilitate a discussion, a meeting of fans. Whether it be on the front page and it’s articles or on the forum.

I have a full-time job and this is a hobby. I enjoy writing and I love my football club so it’s an easy thing for me to write about. I feel part of a community of Canary fans and I love that.

If you can be bothered, feel free to have a root about on Twitter and see the full extent of what he said, what I said and what everyone else said.

To those that came to my support, thank you, it means the world and I am very grateful.

By the way, I haven’t been able to publish the whole chat back and forth because it went via several different threads and there is just too much to it, besides, I wouldn’t want to be accused of cutting and pasting anything…
