Michael Bailey: Norwich City and Chris Hughton in the no man’s land between Fulham and Hull

In truth, Norwich City’s FA Cup exit at Fulham wasn’t the worst performance under Chris Hughton. In fact, it wasn’t even the worse performance against Fulham. But it was a watershed.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Following Tuesday’s final whistle, for the first time it seemed the majority of Canaries fans wanted managerial change – rather than a vocal minority.

Not only that. It was also the first time the fans looked to turn some of the situation’s heat towards the City boardroom.

‘We need to hear from David McNally’ screamed supporters – something the chief executive duly delivered on Wednesday morning. They now have to decide whether they liked what he said.

If Chris Hughton’s job was solely based in Social Media Land, it became untenable on Tuesday night.

But it’s not. Rather, this will play out at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon against Hull.

Bizarrely, victory in that game and City will sit level on points with the Tigers. It’s not a defence – it’s a possibility.

However, defeat and no one would be surprised if Hughton’s reign as Norwich City manager came to an end, seven games shy of becoming the club’s longest-serving Premier League manager by number of games taken charge. He’s already managed the feat in terms of time.

Regardless of how you define “continuous improvement” it doesn’t involve carrying the same failings as last season, while losing all of the strengths.

It doesn’t involved only losing 3-0 at Fulham in the FA Cup instead of 5-0 at the same venue in the Premier League.

And if City do anything other than beat Hull on Saturday, it won’t involve Chris Hughton.

  • sorry to say this but if we stay out of bottom three it will be because three teams play worse than us,not because of manager.

  • Another point to consider is that constant movement up the table season on season is not normal behaviour. Alan Pardew at Newcastle's tenure so far has been, 5th in 1112, 16th in 1213 and sitting in 8th at the moment this season. Similarly, Alex Ferguson got 2nd at Man U in 198788, 11th in 198889, 13th in 198990, 5th in 199091. Constant improvement season on season is seldom seen.

  • Any team in the bottom half of the premier league is going to have 'overwhelming failures'. 40 points is safety and that equates to 10 wins and 10 draws over a season, i.e. a 26% win rate. In the meantime, there are 10 other teams having seasons not that dissimilar to ours. Regarding the cup game, yes, Fulham was a travesty, but it was far from our best side, which realistically was sensible given the injury situation and the need to secure league position. Yes, we got drubbed in the event down to individuals not finishing off the chances that the team created and our individual defenders really being very sloppy when Fulham pushed up the pitch. Then after all that the fans clap the players off the pitch and call for the manager to be sacked. On what grounds is applauding the players for an epic fail and then putting all that blame at the door of the poor sod who can only really stand there and watch during the game like the rest of us a vaguely rational message? Blaming the manager for injuries, which I've seen happen on here, is the most stupid piece of blame I've seen laid at his door so far. The guy has made errors of judgement that he holds his hands up for without trying to blame him for utterly bizarre things like that. This season has not been without good results and even performances, hence we have 20 points and are in 15th instead of zero points sitting at the bottom of the table. Injuries have played their part in us not being able to get the maximum potential out of this season. There is no question that the team has a horrible habit of rolling over when we go behind at the moment and that needs to stop, something that has crept into the team after Grant Holt left. Hughton obviously recognises this and accounts for Gutierrez being added to the fold who is a highly charismatic international for a team that got to the quarter-finals of the world cup who actually had the guts to stick with Newcastle in the Championship and was a big part of their fight back up. There's every reason to hope he's the spark we need to reignite a fighting spirit. It's worth noting that this same player is coming to Norwich specifically because of who our manager is. McNally clearly believes Chris Hughton can get us home to another season in the Premier League, although doubtless he's disappointed with the season so far as we all are. Aside from that, there is no alternative manager available who realistically offers any sort of upgrade from what we have. So who would you folks want as caretaker manager from our coaching staff at the moment?

  • The problem is that some supporters + board members still have the "little old Norwich" mentality. We really should be kicking on now, not fighting relegation. We've been in the Premiership long enough to start building + making improvements. As long as there are people who "know their place" + are happy with mere survival, we'll never progress. Don't bother lecturing me on where we were 5 years ago, because we should never have been in the 1st division to start with. Hughton got lucky last season with that 10 game run. Doesn't look like it's going to happen again, so we're looking @ 4th or 5th from bottom @ best. This ify-buty stuff could go on for years with Hughton. Just depends if the board + supporters are happy to tolerate it. I'm not. Hoof the Hoot !

  • TrevorKeith, I think that's fair enough if you believe in football as consumer entertainment as opposed to competitive sport. Pay your money and walk out afterwards with a feel-good buzz from three points. Doubtless the winning ways of a meteoric rise consolidated that expectation. We're now in the biggest league in English domestic football fighting with other clubs to stay there and most of those clubs are better equipped to do so in terms of value and depth of squad. That's where we're at and continuous improvement is the goal, while there's 19 other clubs out there all determined to make sure that we don't, and as such can't be guaranteed.

  • Overall CH is not taking our club forward. We have not improved under his management and there is no sign that we ever shall; in fact the reverse. That is the evidence, and that is the first half of equation. The other half is finding someone who can do better. That cannot be too difficult because, frankly, CH is useless.

While the old worn out saying of he cant do anything once they cross the line is kind of true its not really the point. He is responsible for results on the pitch. You cant sack the team. You can sell players for not performing etc but blame will always lay at the managers do. I dont agree with the panic sackings of managers these days but I would hardly consider Hughton going unfair. If anything it would be one of the most justified ones in Premier League history given the clear indications what direction were heading over the last 12 months. Cant call this a blip anymore.

  • Without doubt the best time to replace a manger is the end of a season and until the WBA miracle most supporters sitting around me were calling for an end to the misery we were being subjected to back in the summer. However, we brought into the argument that many of the players at his disposal were signed by the previous manager so he was given time and money to build a team of his choice. To date that team has looked far worse than the one he originally inherited. Why change manger now then you may well ask, well in a week or two the club will be issuing next seasons ticket renewal notices and if no management change has been made many are considering their options. The change should have been made after the Fulham defeat but I fear the board have decided to stick with what they have, however the wrong result on Saturday may well have themselves a difficult situation to deal with.

  • LittleYellowBirdie, yes we finished in 11th last season but when I went along to the WBA game, I fully expected us to be relegated as we were playing some dreadful football up to that point. The bad stretch you refer to, really started before Christmas last season, so has now gone of for 13 months. Given our current form and that of clubs below us I fear we may not get luck two seasons on the trod but what is more import is the fact that most supports I speak to want to watch attractive attacking football and CH fails to get his team playing the Norwich way we have been used to for so many years. I would rather see Neil Adams take control if we could not attrack a more experience manager but have said before that we should consider the likes of Glen Hoddle, Ray Wilkins or even Phelan. Give them a contract to the end of the season so that they could be replaced if deemed not up to the job.

  • But the reasoning just isn't sound. We're having a bad stretch and it needs turning round, but that necessitates evidence that the current guy can't do it, which on the back of 11th last season and half way to safety at this stage it isn't unreasonable to think that he can turn it around, particularly factoring in imminent injury returns and squad strengthening this window (something that's more likely to happen without the sword of Damocles over Hughton's head). In the meantime there is nobody available to replace him immediately, which would leave us looking to Calderwood to be caretaker manager for the foreseeable future.

  • My point is that Lambert left without a succession plan - but he did leave on his own accord, which is a rarity these days. Alex Ferguson left Man Utd, but he was very much part of his own succession plan - Lambert left under a cloud to further his own ambitions - so my point is that he is in some part also to blame for our predicament. TrevorKeith is totally right about what Sky money is doing to our game. The sooner Man Utd, Chelski & Co disappear off into a new European Super League with the likes of Real, Barca & Bayern the better. What we need is a level financial playing field for our top flight domestic league - and we don't have that any more. That is why City are struggling - the game is being ruined by silly money !

Well we are and McNally is right - so can we cut all the angst get down to Carrow Road and support the team and manager. The king is still alive (i.e. CH) and while he is I for one will always support him. He is good man and good guys deserve to succeed and if they need a bit of t l c so be it.

  • In response to Thornton yes we would all like to see good men succeed and yes maybe CH is a good man. However so is say Steve Bruce. The difference is that Steve also comes across as a hard man both to the public and doubtless to the young men he is managing. This may be a significant advantage when managing a premiership football club and should be essential criteria to be appointed to the position given the nature of the job and high rewards on offer.

No loyalty or pashion towards the clubs only towards their bank balances. NCFC have slowly but surely fallen into the same muddy water save still having British owners. McNally talks about being in the entertaining business but under this manager I am not being entertained and the only way to show my dissatifaction is to cease buying a season ticket I fear.

  • I share LYB`s hopes for a "Gutierrez Effect" and the need for an inspirational character to replace Holty. I read somewhere that Pochettini does speak reasonable English but prefers to have the shield of an interpreter between himself and the toxic media men! No evidence whatsoever for that quasi-factoid! Gus Poyet seems to muddle by OK. I think we shouldn`t underestimate the damage that injuries have caused. Just as Tettey and Howson appeared to be gelling, they both got injured. E. Bennett and Pilks also badly missed. Our new strikers both had lengthy spells out. (So why was Becchio still ignored? Not good enough? Then why did we sign him??). Then, all clubs have to deal with such issues, which is why they have a squad of players, all hopefully of selectable quality.

  • Yes, sacking players isn't viable, whereas sacking managers is easily done, but it doesn't change the fact that there's a difference between singling out a scapegoat to vent frustrations on and making constructive decisions that give a realistic chance of improving things, which is the only rational objective of making a move that is going to be expensive as well as not necessarily being beneficial. The short term benefits of a managerial bounce are usually very short-lived and we still have nearly half a season to go. Personally, I still remain optimistic that things can be turned around for the better as we have important players coming back from injury as well as Gutierrez to add to the options. Reading articles about him, he's been singled out as a guy who has catalysed good performances over a number of good runs in his time at Newcastle. Personally, I think managerial change should be restricted to transfer windows like players as the constant merry-go-round is highly destructive.

And before some smart Alec jumps in with 'that's easy, we'll lose', we have actually won five games so far this season. Two of them by two goal margins, which were firsts since our return to the premier league. We are having a crap run of eight games without a win at the moment. Pity some people can't dismiss that as easily as they could ten games unbeaten last season.

  • Brew, there is little doubt that our club has enjoyed support beyond their wildest dream in recent years, partly I suspect as there is little other top sport to follow here in Norfolk. Many of those sitting around me at the ground now appear to be at the same point I am at. I read comments on this site such as, there is a waiting list of over 2000 so the club are not bother but I suspect this season may see more leave than want to join for the first time in many years. Many of us are a bit like addicts as we gave in and purchased a cup ticket to watch the Fulham game at home, only to be shortchanged once again. I have long since given up on away games and now may go the full Sky Milky Way and be done with it as I will then be able to sit in the warm and turn the set off when dross is being played.

  • I will reserve judgement on Gutierrez until after I have seen him play a couple of games but suspect he will not be match fit right now. With regard to our injured stars, even when they were fit and in the team it made little difference to the results we were achieving. Tettey had a couple of good games but certainly did not look interested in others. Howson has maybe had a couple of good games when played as an attacking midfielder but once again the results do not suggest that he is that successful even in his best position. He certainly does not play many good forward passes and has only scored one goal. Pilkington playes well against the top sides such as Chelsea, Man utd and the Gunners but looks flat for most other games. Elliott Bennett has never been the first choice right winger and now we have Redmond he is probable third choice for that position so I do not see our injury list as being a major factor in our current form.

Of course supporters wanted to see RVW and Hooper up front, but they also wanted to see a disciplined midfield who who can supply the ball, instead of more often cutting inside and going for goal themselves

To get to that stage is going to take quite a few years of losing a lot more games than winning irrespective of who the manager is.

To be so deluded as say we are having a bad stretch, when in actual fact we have been subjected to the same dross for a season and a half now, with no sign of any improvement having spent 27 million pounds on players. The man is clueless, insipid, stubborn and is backed by two coaches who are even worse. If you are happy with the continuous excuses for a totally incompetent manager and the style he has brought to this club then you are very easily pleased lyb, but the majority of fans are sick to the teeth of him, and want him gone. Why the board have said that a drop into the bottom three is the catylist for his dismissal is a joke, he should have gone at the end of last season, because it was obvious even then that he was no way up to the job.Just about the whole footballing world can see why Mike Ashley sacked him... he didn't like his style of management or tactics, and we can all see why

  • But... CH's brief is to keep us out of the bottom three. It's possible we shan't be in the bottom three even if we fail to win on Saturday. Then what?

  • Keeping us out of the bottom three is a daft strategy for the board to adopt. It takes no account of the issues that this idea throws up. What, for example, would they say if we were 4th from bottom going into the last game.....and we lost.......and were relegated? It shows the shortcomings of such an inflexible attitude to a complex set of circumstances. This is why they must be decisive and act now....but they won't!
