Norwich City is experiencing a number of changes which might hamper them

Norwich City is experiencing a number of changes which might hamper them

During the previous season of the Premier League, Norwich City was able to compete in the top tier English football competition but were relegated after finishing in the 19th spot and now Norwich City have taken a step back to the English League Championship.


After getting relegated, one of the initial objectives that Norwich City had was to snatch top position in the English League Championship and earn their promotion once again to the Premier League but this objective has been harder to accomplish than originally expected.

Norwich City has snatched the 10th spot of the English League Championship with 60 points from 41 matches and even though they still have a chance to secure a play-off promotion spot to the Premier League, it appears like it’s not going to happen as Norwich City has to play against clubs that have been doing fairly impressively in the season.

The opportunity of Norwich City to being able to earn a promotion spot to the English Premier League is still a realistic but a very difficult one to accomplish and especially for a club that has recently been experiencing a number of important changes including changing the head coach and the Sporting Director just to name a few of the more renowned switches.

Alan Irvine is the interim manager of Norwich City who still remain in charge of Norwich City until the end of the current season as he replaced Alex Neil on March 10 of 2017.
