Change needed fast

Where did it all go wrong? This is the question most Norwich fans have been asking themselves recently but more importantly, why did it all go wrong?

Having attended the last 2 games against Reading and Ipswich, one thing is clear, there is simply no togetherness, a poisonous atmosphere is running right through the club at the moment and it doesn't look like we're going to find cure.

A year ago we had just undeservedly beaten WBA and managed to keep hopes of beating the drop alive, we then however lost 5 games in a row then along came Manchester United. Worthington who at this point had resigned himself to relegation said he didn't want anyone saying they 'hadn't had a chance in the Premiership' he then of course played Helveg at RB and Safri in CM.

Suddenly we looked a decent side and started playing football and more importantly winning football matches, problem is it seems it all happened by accident and considering we now have a record where we haven't won a game in over a year without Safri being in the team shows just how influential he is.

This gives us some clues to why it went wrong - Worthington has been very lucky. Safri and Helveg are excellent footballers and for them to be overlooked for so long was a crying shame, what exactly went wrong to lose to Fulham 6-0 was never properly looked into. Worthington has had it too easy from the board in the past year when he deserved to be put under more pressure. The players also have a lot to answer for, OK they might not be managed too well but some of the players we brought in actually seem to have no football ability whatsoever and as the derby proved, their hearts aren't in the club.

The relationship between the Norfolk media and Norwich fans in recent weeks has been very poor. The local media seem intent on backing Worthington and the fans are starting to feel ignored by them and the club. In the past few years all the links between players, fans, board, management and media have been strong, they're are falling apart and our club is suffering as a result and changes at management level are needed sooner rather than later.
