Many at the Carra will be sad to see these two go. Culvs in particular was a great servent to the club. But leopards dont change spots. The premiere has had season to analyse the Lambs/Culvs methods and will be better prepared for it this season. Not saying they wont succeed but they may have an achilles heel.

Just something to bare in mind. Great with hungry young up and comings for sure. But how many more are there left in that catagory? I know its something Lambert himself expressed. Now he is in direct competition with Hughton in that market. No experience at all of established egos or the international market. Still great potential but this was always to be the season his methods faced the acid test where ever he was in charge.

be interesting to see how they do Clwyd, I guess no one is guaranteed success, but pretty happy to watch them give it a go!

Still a bit bitter clwyd are we? If he could work miracles at that little club in three seasons with a small cash flow,then what will he do with a big club,top of the league training facility's and the best up and coming youth system in England,as well as cash to spend then,yes who knows what will happen? So clwyd, you worry about how Norwich can improve after all the other prem clubs will of worked them out,same squad,same lack of funds,new unproven coach! Like many I know,I will be putting money on you,wigan and west ham being relegated! Good luck mr bitter Norwich fan, I think you will need it!

No bitterness at all. Gone is gone so carry on. It will be the same old story after all. Top two places already desided. Same contenders for the other euro spots. The rest of us scrapping it out to avoid the bottom three. I dont like the way what happened happened. But I blame the league for that for not having sufficiant regulation.

Very harsh GH I agree. And not well researched either. Villa has a bigger ground but back stage facilities are easily of Premiere standard. Hughton can hardly be regarded as unproven. Many years as Spurs reserve coach. Took Newcastle to the prem and achieved a creditable mid table place before being unexplainably sacked. Pardew has conceded that Hughtons ground work is the backbone of their current success. Took near bankrupt Brum to the play offs on threepence and a used second class postage stamp. As for squads both sides at this time have almost the same personel discounting those that have been released. The size of war chests is debatable but I doubt there is more than ten million between them. As we all know that can be blown on one ill advised purchase.
