The doubters may be circling as the fate of Norwich City’s Premier League status edges closer to resolution – but Neil Adams is happy to ignore them for the evidence at his disposal.

The Canaries’ gallant, but ultimately pointless, performance at home to Liverpool on Sunday underlined the task facing them before the season concludes on May 11.

City travel to Manchester United and Chelsea before hosting Arsenal on that final weekend, seemingly still in need of at least three points to pull off their survival mission.

“No doubt people will now question if we have what it takes in the final three games to get ourselves out of it, and I think at 3-1 down and 2-0 down (to Liverpool) the character is not in question,” said City boss Adams.

“Everyone has seen two performances under me and they have been first class. We probably should have won at Fulham and probably should have got something in the second-half performance against Liverpool, to push a team back and dominate the ball and create the chances.

“You get what you deserve in football…and in the second half we have pushed a team all the way who are likely to win the title. However many points it needs – nine to play for, whether it is four, five, six, whatever. We believe we can stay up.”

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has won all sorts of plaudits for his efforts at the Anfield helm this term, and in turn the former youth coach praised Adams for the tactical challenge he faced at the weekend.

“He has to be an inspiration,” said Adams of Rodgers.

“I remember Brendan coaching down at Chelsea and one or two other clubs, and he has shown what can be achieved with the right knowledge and expertise, and willingness to learn.

“Every coach strives for that. You want to improve and development and coach or manage at the highest level. He has done that.”

  • Its time for Delia Smith to stand down and let someone else make those tuff decision that she can't make Delia and her Husband where the only two that stop the sacking of Hughton several weeks ago and the sacking of Hughton came far to let for Neil Adams to stop the rote yes they are at times playing better but there is still the same old story can't play well for 90 mins poor defending can't score goals .I said at the star of the season that city will get relegated this season and it looks like i will be stop on with that all down to some signing and Hughtyon was still manager.

Clearly, St. Dee & MW-J have a big financial interest and orchestrate the cardboard happy-clapping cacophony. Don De Vito Machianalli does all the actual donkeywork. I suppose the other three are such fun at dinner Parties in Chateau Delia? Much respect for your reseach, Swiss. Your time at Broom`s Barn was well spent! ;-)

And despite some of my past comments I agree with Barking that CL is a good writer who knows how to provoke a (+or-) reaction.

  • The club's last set of annual accounts made staying in the PL our main aim this season. Deeper in to the report is buried the factored in allowance for possible life in the Championship should things not work out. Could that explain the lack of apparent concern as CH took us to the brink? Or was it simply good housekeeping by a board many fans seem happy to defend? Whatever the answer our virtuous ship is afloat in a sea of sharks. Man C threaten to challenge the legality of fair play rules, Leeds are allowed a new owner with convictions for tax evasion and Leicester arrive at the head table backed by mega rich Thai owners. If the board wants to steer clear of shark infested waters it must rethink its strategy when it comes to footballing appointments.

  • The last published accounts for the club stated the main objective this season was to stay in the PL. Buried in the detail it later mentions rolling cash flow scenarios up to 30\6\15 that allow for the possibility of Championship football. That is a business being run sensibly and ready to operate within the constraints of its ability to generate income. You then have Leeds whose new owner, a convicted tax fraudster who has been cleared by the leagues fit and proper persons committee, preparing to launch a promotion challenge next season. Man City are making noises about challenging the FFP rules in the European court. There were pictures in last Sundays papers of the Leicester manager hugging Buddhist monks, there as guests of the Thai owners who bankrolled promotion. I have been critiical, and still am, of our boards handling of managerial appointments but I believe in their integrity. However, if we are to stay afloat in these shark infested waters the directors need to sharpen up how they reach their decisions on footballing matters. After all, if our main aim this season was to remain in the PL what was the cause of the endless dithering over Hughton?

  • Mr Phillips has 100 ordinary shares as well and the Chairman (Bowkett) has 1,117 shares. Delia & Michael Wynn-Jones hold the vast majority it seems (plus 100 each individually), though it is only the board member holdings that are listed there will be other shareholders but it does not appear that they will actually have much clout in comparison. If it was a bigger company, at £75 million turnover it is still small, then there would be an Executive Committee and a Board of Directors representing the wider shareholders. As a small company, the board are the majority of the shareholders. A mate of mine is CEO at a championship club and says that it is like a family business rather than a corporation.

  • All of the final three games could be meaningless to the opposition by the time we get to them!! Chelsea have already lost Cech & Terry so maybe there are some good omens finally, I expect Mourinho will play best side available against Liverpool, a draw is best for us, need Chelsea to be more or less guaranteed top three and Arsenal fourth. There will be a Giggs factor at Man Utd!! Other players at the bottom have to get the points as well, we've not gone yet. OTBC, in Neil we trust.

  • OMG, ex-Archant!! Does that explain Archie`s attitude to proper, professional reporting on all matters NCFC? Da Vito`s 100 shares - but a mere token, really. 2nd tier `directors` often held such an insubstantial shareholding. In many Companies, the rank & file will hold tiny percentages like that - and be allowed to vote at the AGM etc. More chance, collectively, of wielding real power than has Machianalli`s picayune percentage - though I`m sure the real Board wouldn`t want to upset him - somebody`s got to do the actual work, haven`t they? Does the `Archant Placeman` have any shares? (Evocative of Bonzo Dog Dada Band again). "I`m the Archant Placeman baby, I`ve got speed, I`ll intercede ... I`ll block everything you need..."

  • NCFC plc has a turnover of about £75 million, so it is still a small company. According to the 2013 Annual Report, DMcN has 100 ordinary shares, Delia & Michael Wynn-Jones have 327,000 jointly and Michael Foulger 98,000, so no doubt about how decisions are made. Stephen Fry has 300. McNally oversees the day to day running as well as being part of the board. A friend of mine is CEO of Middlesboro, and briefly turned up on these pages during the sale of Dany Ayala. He says that most football clubs are much more like family businesses than corporations.

  • Btw, I bet there are many other `cultural` reasons why people are `disqualified` from being on a Board! I was accustomed to two types of director in British business - Capital `D`, aka the Main Board (=money involved\inner circle) and lower-case `d` = those who actually worked. Highly paid hired hands, often on `rolling contracts`, performance related - directors in a more European context, ie Senior Executives\Managers. Or the USA thing about "Vice Presidents". Any way up, Machianalli (or anybody else) could not out-vote St. Dee & MW-J, so it amounts to the same thing. What`s in a name? A bit of status? I suppose that may be important to some? That Stephan chappie is `Phillips` but I haven`t tried to find out who, or why, he is. Maybe just a good dinner-party guest? Like Mr. Fry.

  • Good comment, malaga flier. Who wants the Thought Police? On the competence of our Board, I suppose it has to be said that it has scant football expertise. Fry & Bowkett. Stefan (?) & Michael F. Saint Dee & MW-J. Well off, celebrities, or well-off celebrities. (Though I don`t know who the enigmatic `Stefan` actually is). As for their hired hand, Da Vito Machianalli, he`s not on the Board, he`s CEO. He understands Footy from marketing and finance standpoints, but is he really a `footy person` per se? Machianalli needed a strong team manager to work with, but he (?) chose Hughton & cronies. He (less of a ? here) also chose Gorbalschev. I thought those two would see the project move forward, but it would seem that Hyacinth Bowkett found Lambert a bit difficult to work with. How would he have got along with Clough Senior?? Dilettante Directors. Not a new phenomenon.

  • Totally agree Cecil. While we all get behind Norwich on match days that doesn't mean we have to be all-accepting and blinkered for the rest of the week. Comment, argument and criticism of teams and their performances has always been part and parcel of the game. It used to be conducted in the pubs, clubs etc. Now it is on blogs like this so gets a wider audience. But the essence is still the same. Very much part of the game and has always been thus. It's the same in life in general as well. You may, for instance, have political persuasions but that doesn't mean you should never criticise or question your party or its leaders. All part of a healthy democracy.

  • Seems Mourinho is intending to field a weakened team at Liverpool this weekend effectively giving up on the Premiership to concentrate on Champions League. Maybe mind games but likely to also impact selection the following week also. Not a write-off there also. Clutching at straws maybe but it ain't over till it's over. COYY.

  • Our well intended owners and their board have always lacked critical judgement when it comes to managerial change. I thought McNally was brought in to help in that respect and Lambert appeared to be proof of the pudding. The Hughton reign however makes one wonder if they just got lucky with Lambert. So here we are with a rookie manager, no wins in two and hoping Man U , Chelsea and Arsenal will be at the beach. I really hope it works out

  • We are all Norwich City fans and support our team in every game. But that doesnt mean we can't criticise people we feel are not helping us to succeed as a club, eg Hughton. Hughton was not good for us but anyway he's gone so that's okay. Now we have Adams, and yes, we should back him for the rest of the season. He's been given the difficult if not impossible job of turning our fortunes around. He's got us playing football again and I give him credit for that even though we havent got any points on the board yet.

  • Yes we are where we are and it is down to Chris Hughton and the players. His tactics were not great and plan B non existent but the players have got a lot to answer for. As for Neil Adams give him a chance who knows he could be the answer to our prayers. To all those who say he is only a youth team coach, who took over from Dave Stringer. Our youth team coach Mike Walker and look what happened then, the best two seasons we had ever had. I know we were not in same predicament but the previous season we lost a semi final to Sunderland and were close to being relegated. So lets get behind Neil because at least he has passion and the club at heart. And all those people knocking Dehlia and McNally look back to where we would have been without them. She put money in when we were ready to go under and Mcnally, yes he got rid of Gunny but look at what happened after. So get your heads out of the sand and onwards and upwards.Too many people have not witnessed the football we have had to put up with in the past, but us who have say come on lets be having you.

  • lets be fairNorwich fans are behind and supporting the team, we are just asking why can't the board show more ambition than just surviving. The man hunt for hughton was based on sticking with what we have rather than going out and Attacking, being too defensive and not being able to change when things clearly aren't working. I'm sorry but for me all of those things apply to the board as well. It was clear by November for most Norwich fans, that this situation was going to end like this. The board waited for an opportunity to sack him and waited too late to give NA a fair chance. It's easy to say with hindsight but this was obvious. Look at southampton, they have detailed presentations saying how they are going to win the league, not if. They have 20 training pitches that represent the dimensions of each premier league ground etc. I don't expect Norwich to be winning the league or fighting for champions league but making a concerted effort on and off the pitch should take us in the right direction. Lambo showed a little part of what could be achieved with the right attitude. Yes the board have done well, but this season they have failed as they have say frozen by fear.

  • There is the classic dilemma when it comes to appointing a manager and recruiting new players. Depends much on if we stay up or not. If we do, recruiting a new manager and players is an easier task but very difficult if we go down. Either way Malky is not the answer judging by his results. What appears beyond dispute is that the players have responded very positively to NA and I doubt that anyone seriously thought CH would have won any of the last 5 games. Now we see some hope. If we stay up NA deserves a chance and if we don't, he may be our best hope unless we are able to recruit a very ambitious manager who wants to make a name for himself. - high risk?? A very difficult call to make regardless of what happens at the end of the season. I don't share what appears to be el dingo's views - that we would lose all those players. There are some good ones there but few if any will command a high fee and interest from other PL clubs let alone top half Premier teams. Not to say they are useless but we have to be realistic. I suspect that regardless of where we finish this season, the first half of next season is critical to both retention and recruiting new players.

  • Ideally we need Liverpool to wrap up the PL at the weekend by beating Chelsea and Man City losing to Palace, and then Chelsea getting through to the Champions League Final , followed by the Gooners having secured fourth place before the last game of the season and thinking about their upcoming FA Cup Final. As they say, 'every little helps' and with a rejuvenated team under NA we just might pull together enough points to scrape through.

  • Unfortunately for us I think Man U will have something to play for. The players, who were dissatisfied with Moyes, will want to show it was his fault they were underperforming. They also have great affection for RG and will want him to do well while temporarily in charge of the team. But that is not to say we can't get something from the game. I live in hope as do we all. The other thing is if we do go down I don't feel so confident we'll come straight back up. How often does that happen? I don't know actually. There are a dozen or more ex-EPL clubs unpeacefully at rest in the Championship graveyard. We'll be up against all of them.

And to be honest, they way the majority of players have performed under Hughton, I don't see too many teams beating down our doors to sign them up. Keep playing like we did for the last two games, then maybe, just maybe we will surprise and get the points necessary to stay up.

From what I've seen so far, I'm quite sure he'd be able to get us promoted again. That said, I think he's right to be positive based on what we saw against Liverpool. Man U actually have nothing to play for next week and if Liverpool seal the deal with three points next weekend, the title will be delivered and Chelsea will have nothing to play for either.

Unless the club manages to attract someone super special (which I doubt we will) I wouldnt be against Adams getting the job full time. My only concern is whether he can attract the right players to us. Everyone non-NCFC related they have tagged Adams with this "hes the youth team guy" tag. Obviously we've seen that isn't the case but does worry me we may struggle to get the best targets in, especially if we are in the championship.
