"Norwich have adopted the high-risk strategy for survival by

sacking manager Chris Hughton with only five games of the season left.

It may be, however, that the Carrow Road hierarchy feel they have

nothing left to lose after the 1-0 home defeat by fellow strugglers West


"The Canaries are five points clear of the drop zone

but they have a fierce run-in starting with a visit to another side

fighting for survival in Fulham, and followed by games against

Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal - so the scale of the

task can be seen.

"It is also a sign of the fear of dropping out of the

Premier League that a club renowned for stability should take such

drastic action at such a late stage, leaving former youth team coach

Neil Adams to try to keep Norwich up.

"In some respects Adams is in a ''no lose'' situation. If

he keeps Norwich up he is a hero - if they go down everyone will blame

Hughton anyway."

Yes, I''m sure we were all expecting, and quite rightly so, a repeat of the Sunderland performance, whereas what we got was the Sunderland performance at the Stadium of Light when Lambert was here !
