Norwich Confirm Lambert Resignation + Reject It

Norwich Confirm Lambert Resignation + Reject It

Norwich City FC have put up a statement on: www.canaries.co.uk

The Club regrets to confirm that Paul Lambert has offered his resignation from his position as Norwich City Manager.

We have fought hard to keep Paul at Norwich City and have not accepted his resignation whilst discussions with another club are taking place.

However, whatever happens, we want to place on record our sincere gratitude for everything Paul has done for the Club over the last three fantastic seasons.

When Paul joined us in August 2009 we were in 66th position in the English football pyramid and the Club was on the brink of financial meltdown.

Today we are a Barclays Premier League football club, on a financially sound footing and with a stadium full to capacity.

Discussions with Paul throughout the last few days have been professional and amicable. Paul has already earned his place in Norwich City Football Club history and, no matter what happens, will always have a friendly welcome at Carrow Road.


So sounds like he will go, just posturing from the Club in order to get a decent compensation package. Can`t blame them for looking after their side of things really.

What now? Can they legally keep him? Hope so. Ole Solksjaer's Claret & Blue Army!

They cannot keep him. No employer can force an employee to stay against his will. Compensation will be the only issue.

All betting has been suspended on who will be the next Villa manager. Looks like he's on his way.

Martinez was my first choice but im delighted with Lambert, we need somebody to sort the club out much like Taylor did the first time he was here, its time for all Villa supporters to get behind the new manager olof!!!!!

Polite and posturing statement, he's off. Norwich are simply making sure they get the extra pennies on compensation and I can't blame them for that. Welcome Paul I think.

let the barrage of transfer links, rumours and speculation begin... any money within 2 days of him being confirmed as manager there is a flurry of links about grant holt... In the mean time - 'lambert give us a wave, lambert, lambert give us a wave!'

I did my season ticket last night so I'm over the moon. However, I'm hoping nothing goes wrong because this is the Villa! I hope we all get behind the next manager. Last year was a nightmare so bring on the new season.
