After months of speculation and increasingly bitter internal divisions over future leadership issues, Nigel Worthington has finally parted company with Norwich City. In his 6 years in the Carrow Road hot seat, he took the club to a play off final and winning the championship in impressive style in 2004. Despite the odds stacked against them, Norwich so nearly avoided relegation from the premiership after just one season.
However, the last couple of years have seen disappointing performances on the pitch and some unfortunate signings. Now Delia Smith and the Board have agreed that it is time for a change.
A club with a magnificient loyal fanbase attracting 25000 to every home match and a fabulous ground coupled with top class training facilities deserves a manger worthy (no pun intended!) of ambition and optimism- a proven track record required (Alan Curbishley or Bryan Robson?) or someone like Mark Bowen (currently assistant at Blackburn) with a canary favourite like Iwan Roberts as an assistiant?
