So, with his possible takeover of the Canaries the talk of the county at the moment, just who is Peter Cullum, the man.
To be frank, I didn't know a great deal about Mr Cullum before his name cropped up when potential investors were being discussed ? as they have been for the past couple of years.
Once just reserved for Premier League clubs, having a Sugar Daddy is this year's fashion statement for us Championship lot. Marcus Evans down the road, Ray Ranson at Coventry, Steve Morgan at Wolves; the list goes on.
And, in Peter Cullum ? the billionaire owner of Towergate Insurance ? Norwich appear to have their very own saviour waiting in the wings.
He certainly ticks all the criteria boxes for the board. He's Norfolk born-and-bred, he's a Canary fan and you would like to think he has the best interests of the club at heart.
With his Towergate fortune said to be around the ?1.7bn mark, his wealth is sufficient to make a serious difference at this level.
And one look at an interview with BBC's 'Working Lunch' programme in 2005 will tell you that this man means business. You don't amass the fortune he has without having a sharp brain.
I was so impressed with Cullum during his BBC interview with Adrian Chiles, which can be viewed here: http://www.towergateunderwriting.co.uk/files/Peter-Cullum-Entrepreneur.wmv
Two minutes in and you can tell why this man was named the Ernst and Young UK Entrepreneur of the Year for 2005. He oozes confidence and charm but Cullum also has a steely determination about him. Could this be exactly what City need?
Throughout the online community, the City board are often criticised for a 'wishy washy' approach, that they lack ambition and do not possess sufficient leadership qualities.
We'll leave that for the messageboard boys to discuss but with Cullum, I can't imagine the same accusations being bandied about.
He has an imposing aura about him and a conviction through his words which fills you with confidence. In short, the powers that be at Carrow Road have to get him to the table.
The takeover of a football club can be a messy business, but in the interests of Norwich City, it makes sense to sit down like adults and see what can be done.
A man with his business acumen and wealth, who is a self-confessed supporter of the club, cannot be ignored. It will not be plain sailing however and things may not happen overnight.
Cullum himself admits that takeover deals are notoriously difficult to negotiate. We're talking big money here, big organisations, big football clubs.
And he revealed that, when scouting for acquisition prospects, a degree of subtlety is required. 'These deals take us quite a long time,” he said earlier this year, whilst discussing the process of expanding his Towergate empire.
“It isn't just a phone call and then we strike a deal, it's about courtship.” And it may be that some courtship needs to take place right here, right now.
It hasn't been a good start to proceedings. By signalling his intentions to the Eastern Daily Press yesterday, Cullum opened up a huge can of worms.
The club's statement on the official website last night, in which they effectively said “for ?56m Peter, the club is yours,” has provided today's major talking point.
And City fans, who, by and large, are for Cullum's arrival at the helm, will be hoping that negotiations can be conducted in a civil manner from now on.
But while, in my opinion, there has got to be a place for the Norfolk-born billionaire at Carrow Road, we must spare a thought for the current board in place.
The 'lack of ambition' argument will always be thrown at them, that's a given. And by resisting any Cullum-led takeover, they are leaving themselves open to all sorts of criticism. But they have done a hell of a lot of good. Keeping a football club beneath the Premier League solvent is an achievement in itself these days.
And majority shareholders Delia Smith and Michael Wynn Jones have sweated blood for the Canary cause since their arrival in 1996. Putting a lot of other business interests aside, the Smiths have spent most of their time and energy on their favourite football club.
This is before we even start talking about money. A loan here, a transfer fee there; it all adds up. Off the top of my head, the cash required for Cedric Anselin and Carl Robinson came from their pockets.
Delia was perceived to be City's saviour when the club so nearly went out of business at the end of the Robert Chase era and this must not be forgotten.
They will not take kindly to anyone trying to gain control at City 'on the cheap'. And, whilst it is a labour of love for them, they must not be ripped off.
After all the good they have done, why should they be? And that is why the two parties must come together and starting discussing realistic figures if this deal is to take place.
The Smiths deserve at least that. But, if they have taken the club as far as they can, the City fans deserve Peter Cullum.
