Roeder on Wiki.....

Recommended Posts

Norwich City

In October 2007, Roeder joined Championship side Norwich City, signing a contract until 2010, with Norwich bottom of the league four points adrift of safety.[27] His first game in charge was on 4 November in the East Anglian Derby against Ipswich Town,

a match that ended 2–2 after Norwich had been 2–0 down at half-time.

His first win came in the home game against Coventry City (24

November), which he followed up with a first away win of the season for

Norwich in the 3-1 defeating of fellow strugglers Blackpool (27

November), who previously had not lost at home that season. He then

guided the team out of the relegation zone with wins over Plymouth

Argyle, Sheffield United, Scunthorpe United, Barnsley, Southampton,

Preston North End and Cardiff City. The Canaries rose rapidly up the

table as a result of this good run of form and, at one stage, it looked

as though they could make a shock late burst into the play-offs,

similar to the run under Nigel Worthington in the 2001/2002 season.

Roeder began an overhaul of the squad in the January transfer window,

releasing players who had been signed by his predecessor and who he did

not consider to have a future at the club. He made the loan signing of Matty Pattison permanent and also renewed the loan deals for Ched Evans and Mo Camara.

Also Roeder signed four loan signings including Matthew Bates, Keiran

Gibbs, Alex Pearce and James Henry. Despite a poor run of form through

February and March, Roeder kept Norwich in the Championship for another


On 25 July 2008, Roeder was fined £1,000 and given a suspended two match touchline ban at a FA disciplinary hearing after criticising referee Andy D''Urso following Norwich''s 2-1 defeat to Bristol City at Ashton Gate on 29 March.[28] Both Roeder and assistant Lee Clark

reacted angrily to Bristol City being awarded a 91st minute free kick

from which they scored the winner. Clark was given a one match

touchline ban and fined £500 for his part in the incident. They were

both warned by The FA

about their future conduct.In a recent interveiw he said " i`ll do

things my way" Delia smith is the best owner a club could have , and if

know nothing tossers like 1stwizard don`t approve they can take a

running jump"

Someones been very naughty indeed.
