Protests set for Wolves
CHRIS WISE Norwich City fans unhappy with the management of Nigel Worthington are being urged to snub the lap of honour which always follows the final home game of the season.
Norwich City fans unhappy with the management of Nigel Worthington are being urged to snub the lap of honour which always follows the final home game of the season.
The Worthy Out group, which has organised a series of protests against the City boss, believes supporters have got an ideal chance to make a point after Sunday's clash with Wolves at Carrow Road.
A statement on their website reads: “This season's 'lap of dis-honour' after the Wolves game will be a burden to the fans of Norwich City Football Club.
“If we get a result against Wolves, we would suggest that those who want Worthy out either leave the stadium or remain silent. Empty spaces and/or silence will be a good indicator to the manager, players and board to show how much of a disappointment this season has been.
“Those in favour of Worthington staying will naturally stay behind, applaud a poor season and show their support. If those who need to get anger of their chest wish to remain and make themselves heard, then feel free to do so - but this may cause friction between fans. The club may enjoy this as it would take the attention away from a poor season and divert it to anger between sections of fans.

“If we were to lose against Wolves, then it would probably be expected that the same noise that was heard for 75 minutes against QPR may well occur again - but after the final whistle.”
The pressure group have not indicated any plans for a pre-match protest on Sunday, but they will be seeking signatures for a petition calling for a change of management at Carrow Road.
