Norwich City fans are being urged by the Evening News to have their say on the state of their beloved football club.

Norwich City fans are being urged by the Evening News to have their say on the state of their beloved football club.

The Evening News is seeking your views on how well you feel the club is faring and your hopes for its future.

We have devised a series of questions relating to the management of the club, both on and off the field, to ensure supporters'' voices are heard.

The issues covered include how happy fans are with the state of the club, where they see the club in five years'' time, whether Carrow Road should be sold to ease the debts and if you would have been prepared to pay more for a season ticket.

A team of reporters will be outside Carrow Road prior to today''s game against Brentford seeking views. Alternatively, you can fill in our questionnaire by logging on to www.eveningnews24.co.uk.

This is the third time we have surveyed fans and each time it has provided bosses at the club with an insight into how happy the supporters have been.

When the Evening News conducted its first survey in October 2007, the club was third from bottom of the Championship.

Fans taking part in that survey issued a wake-up call to club bosses as we revealed the depth of depression at Carrow Road.

The survey found that six out of 10 fans were dissatisfied with the club, one third were angry, one in three feared relegation and 98pc said the club was moving in the wrong direction. Just a few weeks later, manager Peter Grant was sacked and Glenn Roeder and his team were brought in.

A cracking turnaround saw them move away from the relegation zone and to within a few points of the play-offs, and a survey carried out in February 2008 showed how, within the space of six months, the feelings of fans had moved from one of fear and dread to one of optimism for the future.

Eight out of 10 fans said they were either happy or content with the current position of the club, 83pc said the club was moving in the right direction, and 93pc said Glenn Roeder was the right man to take the club forward.

One in five fans said they believed automatic promotion could be gained the following season while two thirds said a play-off place.

Since then, the club has lurched from one disaster to another. Glenn Roeder fell out of favour with the fans and the board and was promptly sacked, while city legend Bryan Gunn could not stop the rot, with the club slipping into the third tier of English football for the first time in five decades.

However, current manager Paul Lambert has turned things around and the Canaries are sitting pretty in second place in League One.
