Roeder pays the price

Glenn Roeder was relieved of his duties at Carrow Road this afernoon in a move that looks harsh compared to how much rope Alan Pardew was given and to how Phil Parkinson has been treated so far. He becomes the latest in a long line of managers to get the boot after losing to Charlton - perish the thought eh? Expectations at Norwich are clearly higher than at the Valley, that or else they are terrified of joining us in our current plight. They look like they will make a quick change and bring in Mark Robins or someone similar from outside who have previous Norwich connections.

Roeder initially saved Norwich's bacon when he joined in the Autumn of 2007. They were adrift at the bottom and he sterred them out of trouble and to safety. His squad was thin and he's had precious little money to spend since what with the ongoing Boardroom squabbles at Carrow Road. They are seven points clear of us in the league but are struggling with Southampton to get out of the third relegation place. They need a bounce from whoever comes in, but with a poor squad and lots of other problems around them, they might just have handed the initiative to Southampton.
