Mike Walker - 'was a phoney'! in Main Discussion - Norwich City Posted June 5, 2009 At Norwich, Walker had built up huge respect amonst the players in his 5 years as a coach. Stringers team was looking tired and running out of steam, but Walker fine tuned it and took it up another notch. He just couldn''t replicate that at Everton with a new squad and by the time he came back to Norwich the momentum (and most of the players he had nurtured) had gone. I''ll always love him for what he did here though. Great, great times.
