It’s been a torrid year to be a Norwich City fan.
There has been relegation, resignations and a season that is threatening to unravel before we’ve even reached Christmas.
Our great club now stands at a crossroads.

In the other direction lies a return to the dark days of Championship medioc-rity, year after year of mid-table fodder with only brief glimpses of sunlight.

That is why today we are challenging the club’s board and its manager to spell out their vision for how they intend to pull the club from the malaise it currently finds itself in.
On the field performances have dipped to worryingly low levels, the players appear to be lacking in confidence and motivation.
Manager Alex Neil seems unsure of his best team and unsure of the way he wants that team to play.
Off the field, a sense of clarity about the direction in which the club is travelling appears to have been lost. That is when drift can settle in. Some might argue it already has.
The previous chief executive had a seven-year plan. Some may have decried it, but at least it indicated there were stated ambitions to strive for.
The club now needs clear and strong leadership and that can start with tonight’s annual general meeting.
We hope the shareholders speak out for the fans. It is up to those present to ask the pertinent questions about the future of the club and how it will be put back on track.
It is then imperative the manager spells out how he intends to solve the issues that are behind the current slump and for the board to lay out the foundations for the success we all crave.
Thousands of supporters travel many miles, spending much of their hard-earned cash for the sheer love of following their football club.
They deserve to know where it goes from here.
