It has been a busy 24 hours for Norwich City and its fans with news of a potential legal challenge to try and safeguard their Premier League future, a battling 0-0 draw brave, but probably not enough to keep them up - and one of its players tweeting critcism of manager Neil Adams.
Shortly after the 0-0 draw away to Chelsea Jonas Gutierrez, the Argentinian on loan from Newcastle and not in the squad for today's game, tweeted: 'Sad to see a not experience (sic) manager in charge'.
This led to a barrage of criticism from Canaries fans with @littlenorwich replying: 'expected better of an experienced player like you Jonas'.
Less obvious was a tweet from fellow Argentinian Luciano Becchio, which also appeared to register his disatisfaction. It read: 'I don't understand anything.... :/' The striker has barely played since joining fromm Leeds last year.
After the game, manager Neil Adams told Radio Norfolk he was aware of the first tweet and added: 'Little bit disappointed by that. You can't keep every player happy. I am not on Twitter. I am bit of dinosaur in that respect but I don't want anything to detract from what has happened here today. 18 players and I mean 18 there who showed a fantastic spirit with it all. I would rather focus on that.'

The day began, however, with news that Norwich have teamed up with Fulham and Cardiff to mount a possible legal challenge against the fact Sunderland were not docked points earlier in the season for fielding an ineligible player.
Adams would not comment on the issue to the press saying it was a matter for the board.
