The Canaries’ third round replay failure left fans calling for the head of manager Chris Hughton and the pressure ramped up to a new high ahead of the top-flight visit from newly promoted Hull at Carrow Road on Saturday – a game City surely have to win to turn their flagging fortunes around.

  • Great debate on Mustard TV following McNallys Death or Survival comment. My concern is simply that I do not see a passion in the players that will move us up the division and it is my belief that this comes from the management. Robert Snodgrass is a player that is known for commitment and effort and yet, at Fulham, he was harassed by Sidwell but very rarely returned the compliment. The player that I thought showed his passion for the situation was Johnston. The thing which stands out to me is the lack of a Plan B.At Fulham it was apparent that, after the early forays, Fulham lifted and stopped what we were doing. At half time therefore what changed in our structure and style to alter the result? Answer: Nothing. On came RVW...off went Redmond (which in my opinion was the wrong choice anyway) Snodgrass took Redmonds job, RVW took Elmanders job, Elmander took Snodgrass; job...same shape - no change. Then on came Becchio who moved into RVW's spot, RVW dropped back into the Elmander role - same shape - no change. Overall Result - we never looked like getting back into the game. I don't condone it, but I can see why the players may get to the stage where they are saying to themselves "this is not working but we have to play to instruction" OTBC - I still have faith in their survival...but we MUST beat Hull.
