Why did it take three weeks?

I suggested to a friend that we might need a tin hat for this Sunday's derby and they replied that a Harry Potter style Cloak of Invisibility might be more appropriate.

Whether this is due to the torture of waiting in the dark for so long while even the most inventive writers got “rumoured out” or a side swipe at the much heralded “transparency” I'm not sure.

Roeder was said to have been on the phone soon after Grant's departure and impressed the powers that be straight away. However, if he was the man for the job then why did it take three weeks of apparent dithering while nine more points went begging and confidence sunk to an all time low, before finally announcing the new manager?

The message boards are full of widely diverse opinion and it's a damning indictment that some are hostile to the new man before he has taken his first training session, while many others grudgingly give the benefit of the doubt for the time being at least.

Many Norwich fans refer to themselves as the best in the country, but I'm not sure how many other clubs would vote the City followers top spot.

Supporters of his previous club West Ham inexcusably referred to Roeder as Tumour Boy after playing their part in pushing their former manager to the brink of existence. Ah, the East End wit, so sharp, witty and clever!

Newcastle fans did their regular running the manager out of Toon as soon as they realised that the years of winning a trophy, that started when Noah was in short trousers, was to go on yet another season.

So Norwich City fans, let's give the man a chance! Get behind him and prove your status as the self appointed number one supporters in the land.

However, the next three games do look difficult and if things go sour for Roeder after that the fans may soon turn on the board who may well need their own cloak of invisibility. Maybe the club shop should stock up.

Good luck Glen!
