  • surely the cost of relegation must out-weigh any compensation due to Hughton.. What on earth are the board doing! He should have been sacked last year to give the team a fighting chance...now it's looking unlikely the board have the balls to boot him out, and so relegation looks inevitable.

  • It was so contrary, Hughton must have done it on purpose. He wants to be sacked. Any lessons learned from the glimmer of hope that was the ManC performance, instantly binned in favour of keeping Robert happy and Hoolahan in his place. Substitutions were not just illogical - they were contralogical. He must want the Hoof. Or is he not very bright? Is he not all the ticket? Enough is enough. Do the Board members care? Do they have their own covert agendas?

  • Chris Hughton should have been Man of the Match for his inspired substitutions that knocked the wind out of our sails, took the pressure off West Ham, and gave them the belief to go on and win the game. A real master tactician and morale booster, our gaffer! We're going down... plain and simple.

  • Who said CH's substitutions can't change a game?? on for a deserved point, actually looking the better team, then taking off our only real goal threat and our most dangerous attacking player......unbeieivable!! even the pundits said they did not understand them. Absolutely stunned and knocked for six at that result. One small step forward then 3 steps back again. Too good to go down (yes there are three worse squads than ours) but hindered by a manager not tactically clever or brave enough to keep us up. Thank you McNally and Hughton, oh btw..thank you for freezing next years season ticket sales...good luck with that sales pitch!! Sack them all now and lets have 10 days for Adams to try to arrest the slide.

  • Its more and more likely city will get relegated as each game we played McNally Hughton should have been sack some time ago but i think the board don't want to Amit that they got it wrong again a another poor manger appointment. One of a long list under this The city board its going to cost the Norwich millions in lost revenue all plans they have in the pipe line have to be scraped . WELL DONE DELIA AND HER BOARD.

  • I really thought it was going to be a great season for our Canaries but knew having CH in charge was going to ruin it for us. And he has.

  • So, so, predictable! We are lucky to score nil these days! Lack of goals will sink us as I and other have been saying all season. We have a clueless manager who simply cannot read a game in progress. Clearly he thought he was going to get a point at West Ham! As ever his negative philosophy lost us the game as has been the pattern all season. I can see no other outcome under Hughton but relegation. We are a shoe-in. As this slide goes on so player morale sinks. Looks at the heads dropping last night. It has now spread even to players like Ruddy who obviously has no faith in his defence. Last night was just another game we should have won but with Hughton at the helm he seems able to make sure we constantly snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

  • One can only surmise that the one with both brains and balls, McNally, doesn`t give a damn. To others, like Hyacinth Bowkett and Stephen Fry, the club`s just a fashion accessory. Delia and Michael are no longer children, perhaps they are abandoning childish things. Thanks for everything, though. You`ve both been superb.

  • Looking grim now, we could not score a goal, even an own goal. Cannot see nothing out of next two games, other clubs in the bottom keep picking up- points

  • One can only guess that Hughton's terms of contract include for heavy compensation if terminated other than when the club is in the bottom three.

  • Hello DWW25. I am a Norwich fan (and not from Barking either). Your analysis of the result is spot on. Count yourself lucky you don't have to put up with the idiot that is Hughton week in week out. I'm not a great fan of Big Sam's style of football, but he 's a safe pair of hands and you should be ok now. I hope so. I like West ham as a club and they have a great set of fans. We have a good fan base too but they are sad today. Last night's game was indeed "season defining". It defined your season as a survival season and ours as a relegation season. Perhaps we shall talk again if and when we ever get back to the big time with a manager worthy of the name. Mind how you go.

  • No wonder the stands were not enlarged and ticket prices were frozen the Board obviously can see from last season where the team is going and just want to keep their money in their pockets whilst the mug fans keep rolling in. People keep saying City have spent more than ever before but look at the amount of TV money coming into the club. What has been spent is peanuts. Carrow Road will soon be under the hammer and become a building site when the Board cash in.

  • From a West Ham fan: Adrian kept us in this game but the (not so) Chirpies downfall was Hughton's double substitution at about 75mins. The irony is that because his defensive mentality got the better of him at that time it cost Norwich at least a point. As much as I like Hughton I think he should walk.

  • Was not surprised at all after last nights very bad performance,I believe we are going down and the board are as much to blame as chris,they wasted the only chance we had to sack chris when other clubs did and have improved as a result,he in turn has thrown away huge sums of cash on players who are clearly not good enough..............Houghton go please now before its to late.
