The 29-year-old has been restored to the Canaries’ starting line-up since Adams replaced Chris Hughton, and Whittaker believes City’s displays against Fulham and Liverpool prove he can galvanise the squad for their Premier League relegation scrap. Whittaker knows Adams stands a better chance of keeping the job beyond the current season if he can guide City to safety with this weekend’s trip to Manchester United followed by games against Chelsea and Arsenal.

“Personally I hope he is the manager next season,” said Whittaker. “There has been a big change with the positive approach we are now playing games and his own positive approach as a person and that is rubbing off on the boys and hopefully we can get the results we need. As far as I am concerned Neil is the manager so we are looking at it that he is here now and we all want to do as well as we can for him. I think it is a fresh start for everyone in the squad and some of the boys do get a boost from it. We need to get the results that keep the manager, the club and the players all pushing forward in the right direction.”

Whittaker - who featured at both Fulham and against Liverpool - revealed Adams’ demands high standards on the training ground.

“Training has been at a lot higher tempo than before,” he said. “He has changed a few things and he is demanding a lot from the players. We have taken that into the games. I feel we have done well in the two he has been in charge but results have not quite matched performances. He is working us harder and he wants us to train as we would play at the weekend. I think that has shown already.”

  • Right then, let's stick with the Adams family, they can't be any more monstrous than the previous rabble, and might achieve some 'family values'.
