    Would be funny if the new manager thinks Pritchard is a waste of space and leaves him out

      They could do a lot worse than look at Mark Warburton for their next manager.

      Will Norwich be putting Pards up in the Linton Travel Tavern?

      It has a certain symmetry to it.

      Hearing that @norwichCityFC will confirm Pardew over next 48 hrs.

      Replacing a good up-and-coming manager in Alex Neil with a has been (or arguably a never was in the first place) in Alan Pardew would be a massive retrograde step for Norwich.

      And we get promoted at Carrow Road.
      Thanks Robbie - one day we'll name a stand after you.

      With Rowett and Warburton getting new jobs, and Pards seemingly ruled out of Norwich, would it be fair to say Norwich sacked Neil without his replacement already lined up.

      Begging the question - Why didn't they just do that months ago?

      It would, but Norwich are over-loaded with players of a similar ilk to Pritchard, by which I mean small, skilful, ACMs with good technique and vision. They also have Hoolahan and Naismith and have just off-loaded Brady. Those are the type of players that just don't tend to shine in the Championship, although there are honourable exceptions (Pritchard for a season, for instance). I can understand why Bloom, CH, Winstanley, etc were interested in introducing one into our squad, because we really don't have a player of that ilk at present. But to have four of them, many of which came with expensive transfer fees and sky-high wages, is one of the many reasons why Neil is no longer in a job. I'm delighted it took them so long to sack him, because the likes of Rowett would have knocked them into shape a long time ago, if they'd brought him in soon after Birmingham inexplicably decided to get rid of him.

      Quite. Both on and off the pitch NCFC seems to be a bit of a shambles at the moment. No CEO having sacked Jez Moxey within months of appointing him. Ed Balls as Chairman produces media friendly sound bites (no surprise) but the club drifts along. It seems that Delia and Mr. Delia are seen as figures of fun, while a very junior family member is being groomed as a board member. Meanwhile club sponsors come and go.

      On footballing matters they (IMO rightly) gave a young manager in Alex Neil the benefit of the doubt despite the wheels coming off at the Amex and their subsequent form taking a dive before Xmas. Finally decided they should part company, most observers presuming they must now have a replacement lined up. However events show they've been eclipsed by other clubs appointing Rowett and Warburton. Hodgson was supposedly in the frame for Norwich at one point. Pardew, well.... Some punters even suggest that Mick McCarthy would do a solid job given the resources at The Canaries disposal. Meanwhile they just seem to be drifting to mediocrity.
