Norwich Draw Their Lines

Norwich Draw Their Lines

Norwich City have reacted to speculation about both their players and manager potentially leaving following their success this season and have said the following.

Speaking to BBC Radio Norfolk, CEO David McNally said:

'We would not welcome any enquiry for our football manager or any of the clubs football players. We will do everything we can and fight this as hard as we have ever fought. If I was at another football club and I was looking for another manager he'd be top of my list.'

With Lambert the bookies favourite at the moment, their CEO could well be busy over the summer.

Before we get carried away on the manager merry go round, does anyone remember what Alan Pardew was doing in November 2010? Worth thinking about that before any candidate is dismissed out of hand

Martinez or Lambert will be acceptable to me. Both very good managers on small budgets, just what the Villa job will be. McLeish was never a good manager and should never have been appointed. Both Martinez and Lambert have excellent track records.

So TelfordVilla what you are saying we should hire Martinez so we can continue to struggle and sell our best players to the successful clubs ? Norwich is about the same size as Walsall so on that basis Lambert would be acceptable. Wigan struggle every year because the Manager and his coaching staff , who no doubt he would bring are not up to making Wigan a stable Premiership side. Just because we have gotten rid of McLeish it does not follow that the new manager will have millions to splash around. Martinez is a Manager of a poor side and if he stays at Wigan then they will be favorites to be Relegated. If he comes to the Villa then we may as well have kept McLeish. Just my humble opinion.

Pride, Martinez refused to talk to us last year because he is an honourable man and loyal to his favorite club, the club which bought him to England and gave him his chance. Good qualities I would have thought. The situation may have changed slightly now as I heard he was out of contract this summer and he did have a small fallout with his chairman a couple of months ago (quickly patched up though). As for only performing at the end of the season. New players take time to bed in to their system and as they have new key players each year to replace the 'stars' of the previous season this is a repeating problem. He may hope to stay at Wigan with the current squad and they should be comfortably mid table if they all stay. Villa have no such stability so we should all be very grateful if he decides to risk it and join Villa. No negativity 100% support required.

I have two problems with Martinez Telford. 1/ He's alreasdy refused an interview with us before. 2/ If he can get his teams to battle out of the relegation positions every season, why can't he get them performing like that at the beginning of the season. If he could, they'd be pushing for Europa League every season.

couldn't agree more Telford.

I cannot believe the negativity towards Martinez. Sure Wigan struggle every year but they are the size of Walsall yet they play great football but have a goalscoring problem because they will never have a £24m striker. Just keeping them in the Prem is a miracle year on year despite having to sell any decent players they find. Martinez simply goes and finds another star for Manure or Spuds to poach. Martinez has a superb scouting network in Spain and South America. His teams always entertain and he laid the foundations at Swansea too for Rodgers to build on. Same style of play, exciting, entertaining never sets out to draw. Whoever we get will not be everyones first choice. Time to unite behind whoever it is.

Why do people want Martinez ? He is just one small step above McLeish. Quoting from Wikipedia "On the 28th April, Wigan beat Newcastle United 4-0 at the DW Stadium to move a step closer to ensuring Premier League safety for the seventh time." and the last 2 seasons they have scraped through just like we did. Not exactly a Manager with recent success under his belt. My worry is that it will be a rerun of last June when we had to accept what appeared to be the only candidate. No, I want a Manager who is hungry for success not someone year after year fighting of Relegation.
