As a Newcastle fan just moved to Norwich here is my opinion for what it is worth. Roeder used to run the academy at Newcastle and produced some excellent players with the youth sides doing very well and bringing through Steven Taylor, Ramage etc. As manager in the first season he took us from relegation candidates to 7th at the end of the season with what were quite honestly a bunch of average players who didn''t give a s**t. However, whether that was luck not I have no idea as in his first full season he looked very much out of his depth and signed some hopeless players. He is not a premier league manager by any means but I feel he has the experience and know how to do a decent job for Norwich, he''ll get in a backroom staff that also have premier league experience which can only be a good thing for a team bottom of the Championship. I''ve no doubt he will go back to Newcastle and loan some players, he is still well liked despite us all knowing he wasn''t good enough. Give him a chance, he clearly wants to be at Norwich and I doubt he needs the money.
