The biggest game

Recommended Posts

So with 5 games to go Chris Hughton is sacked ostensibly for a series of away defeats and the gaining of only 4 points from the last 6 games.  It is a real shame that Mr McNally wasn''t equally attentive to the facts before.  Then he may have noticed that in all last season only 2 away wins were achieved, that from mid-December to mid-February Norwich took only 4 points from 9 games, and that in the final 21 games there were just 4 wins in total - one a lucky win against Everton and the last two matches of the season when the opposition had nothing to play for.  This season has continued in similar vein. 

The truth is we have watched uninspiring, slow, predictable football in all but a handful of matches over two seasons now and the sacking should have been done long ago.  The decision to wield the axe now is as much to do with the position of Mr McNally and the board as it is Chris Hughton.  After Saturday''s defeat against WBA the odds on relegation shortened dramatically and the prospect of supporters turning their anger in McNally''s direction became a real possibility.  With the sacking the water has been muddied and the club''s position can be defended no matter what happens now.  Whatever their games we can only hope that in the games that matter Norwich can pick up enough points to avoid the drop.  Then he can claim what he likes.
