• Colin Calderwood

Former Hibernian and Nottingham Forest boss Calderwood is assistant manager to Chris Hughton.

The 47-year-old was appointed by Birmingham last November after being sacked by Scottish Premier League side Hibernian.

Hughton was assistant manager at Tottenham when Calderwood was a player and the former Northampton boss also worked under Hughton at Newcastle United. Calderwood led Northampton to promotion in 2006 and took Nottingham Forest up from League One in 2008. He won 36 caps for Scotland and appeared in two major tournaments. Born in Stranraer, he played for Mansfield, Swindon, Spurs, Villa and both Nottingham clubs.

• Paul Trollope

The 40-year-old former Wales international midfielder was manager of Bristol Rovers from 2005 to 2010, coming up against the Canaries during the League One campaign of 2009-10.

The son of legendary former Swindon defender John Trollope, he played for nine different clubs over an 18-year career, including Torquay, Derby, Fulham and Northampton, and represented Wales nine times between his debut in 1997 and 2003. Sacked by Bristol Rovers in December 2010, he became coach alongside Hughton at Birmingham last July, helping the Blues to fourth place in the Championship.

• Ewan Chester

Chief scout Chester is back for his second spell at Carrow Road.

Chester joined Birmingham last season after leaving the Canaries at the end of the August transfer window.

The Scot arrived at Norwich in May 2010 from Glasgow Rangers after enjoying great success at Ibrox. He also spent two seasons at Fulham. Following Chester’s exit from Norwich, it was confirmed that Colin Jackson had been appointed in his place.

Interviewed three months ago, Chester said: “I have a lot of time for Norwich. They did brilliantly to get into the Premier League and I think they will be there for some time but I am good friends with Chris Hughton and the chance to come and work with him was too great.”

  • So.....what does that do for persuading Mr Holt to carry on as a Norwich player? The jungle drums have it that Grant Holt and Colin Calderwood had a major falling at at Forest, and no way will Holt play here under Calderwood!

  • If my memory serves me correctly, I understood that Ewan Chester left us to go to Chelsea. If so, how did he end up at Birmingham? Anyway, he obviously scouted some good players for us in the past, probably also the ones signed last summer, so a few more of the same will be good. Still no word on Culverhouse and Karsa?

  • MB, my contributions are nowhere near as prolific as yours but in the past I have shared your frustrations. What I feel to have been constructive and considered comments disappear while we see inane and often damning words (mostly from the same certain individuals) continually getting through. Maybe 'The Moderators' are rationing you and have the system set to reject every other one of your contributions, regardless of content? Anyway keep 'em coming!!

  • I may be partly culpable for the Calderwood>Holt `issue`. An acquaintance of mine, a Forest supporter, mentioned it to me a while ago and Holty`s entry in Wikipedia confirmed it. There were also contract issues at the time, it seems. Hopefully no permanent damage was done and it won`t have a bearing on the outcome. Personally I`d like to see Holt stay. I think it would be good for the Club and for him. He has had the best 3 years of his career at Carra Rud. Not broke, don`t fix it applies...... I`d love to know what`s happening on the Culverhouse front. I keep getting mental (!) images of a dour Scotsman in a cave, cohabiting with a spider, plotting our downfall.

  • I think I would be happier now if Grant just went so CH and his team can concentrate on preparation, not spend their time on one cog in the machine. Thanks Grant, Bye !!!

  • Good grief! All that careful thought and keyboard work to submit what was intended to be a seious contribution, and it`s disappeared. I am not going to try again. Life`s too short for me to keep battling against this random (or not random?) immoderation. :-(

  • Thank you, Kent Anglian. My wife came from Charing, near Ashford. Irrelevant, but I`ve said it now! No, the ethering doesn`t have that sort of pattern. A lot of what vanishes ends up in a journo`s paid "work"! There is something rotten in play, I fear. OTBC.
