There's one thing about being parked up the far end of the A11; that if anyone turns up in the Norwich City directors box, then you know that they are there for a reason.
Carrow Road is not one of those grounds where you check your watch at 12 o'clock and say to the Mrs: 'You know what, darling, I just fancy taking in a game today, think I'll go and watch Norwich-Blackpool….'
Not if you're Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink.
Who, by every trusted account, was sat there in the directors' box this afternoon.
Now either you're there as a scout for Cardiff. Or as a player's agent. Or else you're someone's guest.
It doesn't take too much digging around by old Ferret to find out that the 36-year-old is unlikely to be doing Cardiff a favour.
The two parties were locked in a legal battle over whether or not last season's FA Cup finalist was entitled to a second year with the Bluebirds.
Hasselbaink says yes; that having made 44 appearances for the club – and scored nine goals in the process – that was enough to trigger a second year. Bluebirds owner Peter Ridsdale says no… And now the lawyers are involved.
�I am very shocked and disappointed at the current situation,” were the Dutchman's carefully-chosen words last month when he was shown the door at the start of pre-season training. �Following discussions with my legal team, I'm unable to comment further at this time.�
Ridsdale was adamant that there was no such agreement in place.
�Jimmy argues that he has another year on his contract, but we know that is not true,� said Ridsdale, he told the icWales website. �But everything will be resolved. At the end of the day we are all professional people and this will be resolved in a professional manner one way or another.�
Mmm. Chances of him being in the stands at Carrow Road running the rule over Cardiff's opponents next week…? Er, nil.
Chances of him being a player's agent; watching his boy play? Slim, given that as of the first week in July he was banking on playing another year in the Championship with Cardiff…
Chances of him having a caravan at Cromer and deciding to take in a game on his holidays… Mmm. Nil.
Chances of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, currently a free agent, being Norwich City's guest in the directors box…?
Chances of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink coming back to haunt the Bluebirds with a vengence next weekend?
Mounting by the day…
