Angry fans to meet board

Norwich City's frustrated fans have launched another scathing attack on the club's management following Sunday's derby day disaster against Ipswich Town.

Manager Nigel Worthington came under pressure at the end of last year after a poor run of results but gave himself some breathing space with a run of form in December which earned him a manager of the month award.

But January has been another unmitigated disaster, with just one draw and four defeats - three of them at home.

The discontent reached new heights on Sunday when Norwich were beaten at home by arch-rivals Ipswich, prompting a noisy demonstration outside the ground as well as a renewed attack on internet message boards.

The next visitors to Carrow Road are Brighton on February 14 - and if the fans aren't appeased then it could be a St Valentine's massacre for the management and board.

Many fans are desperate to ensure the board of directors know their true feelings and web sites have been heaving with suggestions as to exactly how that can be achieved.

Some website posters have suggested a silence instead of the orchestrated signing of the anthemic On The Ball, City which is traditionally sung before each home game.

Another suggestion was turning up 15 minutes after the kick-off - although the good old-fashioned method of vocal disapproval seems as popular as ever.

What is certain, however, is that Worthington and the board, who are arguably coming under more pressure than at any time this season, will have to turn things around quickly to keep the fans at bay.

Having endured the wrath of the fans after Sunday's defeat, the Canaries board - but not Worthington - will come face to face with members of the Northern Canaries supporters' group on Friday evening, the eve of their game at the KC Stadium.

“I am sure our members are looking forward to addressing the board and pointing out our concerns,” said the organisation's secretary Ben East.
