I personally found the decision to appoint Neil Adams as first team manager of Norwich on a 3 year contract astonishing. I would have no issues with him being appointed, if he had been through the ranks, for example being a successful manager at a League 2 side then onto a League 1 side. The fact that he was appointed manager of a Premier League team with 0 games experience as manager, failed (may not have been totally his fault but he picked the teams) and then was given a 3 year deal on the back of that is incredible. I honestly believe we would be the only club out of 92 league clubs that would do this. We all know that they claim they “scoured the European Market” and amazingly found the best man already at the club. This is despite not involving him to assist in 1st team responsibilities for any of the time he returned to Norwich; from U14 manager, to Canary Call presenter to Academy Manager. We were told that despite his lack of experience, he could rely on Joe Royle to assist him here and there. Who does he turn to now? Neil Adams is quite clever though. He was never going to turn down this once in a lifetime opportunity (he may never manager another club) and he knew full well that Hughton was negative, so all he needed to do was to make noises about playing attacking Football and everyone would be on his side. I’m yet to see that in any game apart from the 2nd half against Liverpool when they had the game won and for bits and pieces in the Fulham game, and the evidence is the fact that we’ve only scored in 1 of the 6 games he has managed so far. So far we have lost some really good Footballers, and it is evident that we will lose Fer, Hooper and Bassong before the season is out, due to the fact that Adams isn’t playing them. It is only because we received acceptable bids for Pilkington and Snodgrass that these remain the only sales thus far. Under Lambert, we lost the 1st game of the season in 2010/11, yet you could really sense we were going places, and boy did we! Under Adams, I just believe we’re waiting for him to admit he is out of his depth or the board eventually realise he is. The first season being relegated from the Premier League is crucial; you can’t mess about otherwise you’ll go past the point of no return. We needed someone externally to come in and unite the fans, take no nonsense and take this division by storm. Sadly, I don’t believe we have that man. Yet.
