    Firstly, Lambert has taken his Staff with him… Secondly the ones that he didnt take have been Sacked (or paid off)….Thirdly Houghtons profile is “improving championship level sides” – which makes him perfect for this Job, because after watching all but one of Norwich’s preseason games, This time next year …..Thats where he and Norwich will be.

    Excellent article Ian, I think that many NCFC fans share the view that a change of manager and a change of style (more conservative) may be the thing we need to avoid “2nd season syndrome”. As for the sad, envious comments from Binsylad, enjoy the championship binner and keeping hoping that one day you’ll play us again!

    Binsylad…prolly best you focus on your own team for preseason. We’re not a shoe-in to stay up, most aren’t. The best thing we can possibly hope for is the media tip us to go down, which the majority have stated will be the case. This is the perfect mentality for our ‘championship’ players to thrive and not get above the station. People just walk in to the trap because they don’t have a clue about football or what’s actually been happening at our club. I’m with you Ian funny enough.

    You can argue that Norwich have already begun their slump even before Lambert left, as they only managed 12 points from their final 13 games of last season. That’s more than a brief loss of form, and repeated over a full season would see them struggling to stay up.
