"We've seen enough games this season, Norwich City simply don't create enough chances.

"I watch Norwich play and I think 'how on earth are they going to score a goal?'. They look lost. I'm not blaming Dean Smith for that, I think he has had a hell of a situation to take over. 

"Maybe Norwich City can take confidence from the performances in the second half against Southampton and Wolves. I think we all thought that the club had turned a corner during the Manchester United game, but they've been rank rotten this season. 

"But, now is the chance for the players to put it right. If I was sat in the dressing room as a part of this current Norwich City squad, I'd feel humiliated and embarrassed by what has happened this season and I would want to prove that I'm a Premier League player. 

"I don't know the mentality within the dressing room and I don't know many players personally but you don't want to go through your career being known as a good Championship player, you want to prove yourself at the highest level. 

"Bottom line, too many players have underperformed."
