Bryan Gunn - You don't know what you're doing !!!

In a game that Norwich needed to win, the most important game for many a year for Norwich, Bryan Gunn decided to play centre half Jason Shackell as a left back. He played left back Simon Lappin as a left winger and brought in a youth teamer with virtually no experience of the first team to play on the right wing whilst a left winger and a right winger were dropped to the bench.

Sorry, Bryan. I feared this would happen. When the chips are down you should play square pegs in square holes, round pegs in round holes. What you don't do is think you have invented new positions and formations that neither the team nor fans have ever understood.

Another example clearly of why Norwich City deserve to go down.

Nich, Bryan Gunn was always the wrong choice for the right reasons. He was a peacemaker, someone the fans could relate to. I agree that when the chips are down you dont call in the cleaner, but this is what Norwich did. I think Norwich knew their number was up. Norwich City FC need to rebuild and that will be with the finances first before the team can think about promotion. 18000 fans declared their loyalty in renewing their season tickets, so the club has to stop the debts rising and become profitable before it can move forward. It will take a very special manager to produce a team capable of coming out of league 1. The question is has Norwich City got the ambition and talent to do so? after it's last three, it's hard to see how.
