A host of former managers and players are now likely to be linked with the vacant managerial post at Carrow Road. David Powles looks at some of the key contenders.

Aidy Boothroyd

The former Norwich youth coach was recently sacked by Watford and is likely to emerge as the favourite for the job. He kept Watford up in the 2004/05 season and guided them to the Premier League the next season.

Malky Mackay

The former centre back is still a firm favourite with City fans. He is currently a coach at Watford and would probably be welcomed back by fans as either manager or assistant to Boothroyd, whom he worked with at Watford.

Mark Robins

Most Read

The former City forward has been a success at Rotherham United but the Norwich job is probably a step too far.

Mark Bowen

Widely-acclaimed as one of the best football coaches in the game. He is currently assistant manager at mega-rich Manchester City but would he welcome a step into full-time management?

Paul Jewell

Was hotly tipped to replace Peter Grant and was recently sacked as Derby County boss. Probably an early front-runner for the post.

Mick Harford

The Luton boss is well-respected within the game but unlikely to be a serious option.

Alan Curbishley

Currently unemployed having resigned from West Ham in September 2008. Would probably be a popular choice with the fans.

Martin Allen

Also went for the job when Roeder was brought in. Now manager of Cheltenham Town.

Aage Hariede

Enjoyed two good seasons as a Norwich City player and is a highly-accomplished manager having recently resigned as Norway manager. Unlikely to be a realistic option.

Nigel Worthington

Would a return be on the cards for the last successful City manager, now Northern Ireland boss?

Roberto Martinez

Highly-regarded manager of Swansea but is unlikely to favour coming to Norwich.

Darren Ferguson

Peterborough boss is building up a great reputation, but may not see Carrow Road as the next step in his career.

Paul Ince

Unemployed having recently left Blackburn Rovers. However, did an excellent job with Macclesfield and MK Dons.

Roy Keane

Out of a job following his high-profile fall from grace at Sunderland. But is he ready for a return to football?

Stuart Pearce

England under 21s manager probably a distant long-shot.

Steve Tilson

Southend United manager is believed to have been considered in the past.

Iain Dowie

Out of a job having left QPR earlier this season and was spotted watching the Norwich game at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

Bryan Gunn

Knows the club inside out, but do the board believe he has what it takes to be boss?

Dion Dublin

Recently retired fan favourite would certainly inspire supporters and players alike. But has moved into media and is not thought to want to become a manager.

Mike Phelan

Former player and now assistant boss at Manchester United. Not thought to want a move into full management, but who knows?

Ian Holloway

The colourful former QPR and Leicester boss would certainly make press conferences entertaining with his legendary quips.

Peter Taylor

Vastly experienced manager of Wycombe, but unlikely to be a favourite.

Iwan Roberts

Former City legend spoke of his heartbreak at not being considered previously for a role at the club. In all honesty it's unlikely to be different this time round.

Ian Crook

Is performance manager at Austrlian club Newcastle Jets and unlikely to have the required experience to take up the role on his own.

Darren Huckerby

Fans have been calling for his return. Is now the time? Unlikely to happen at this stage in his career.
