According to Clement, Curtis has only been taken away from the coaching set up, but, the club does not want to part ways with him. The president and the entire top brass are really keen to slot him in some other vital position where he can make a difference from.

Curtis’ name is associated with Swansea for four and a half decades and in the past, it’s been said by the Swans’ bigwigs that the Welshman can remain with the club for as long as he wants to.

But, yesterday it got reported that Curtis received an SMS on his phone in which he was informed that the club did not want to have his services anymore. Continue reading 'Paul Clement denies Alan Curtis being Fired from Club'»

There are media reports that former Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett may end up at Norwich City after having been sacked.


With Norwich City struggling in the Championship, it is believed that the management is looking for a replacement for Alex Neill.

It is believed that Norwich City would want to seize the opportunity to appoint Rowett as the manager of the club especially with the team struggling to remain consistent in the Championship.

Alex Neil Slams Players after Humiliating Loss against Brighton

Norwich City’s disappointing run continued, but in the worst possible manner, after a 5-0 defeat against Brighton meant that the team have now slipped away from the top places in the Championship table.


Norwich have been one of the early pacesetters, but their form has dropped in the last couple of weeks. It presents a major problem for manager Alex Neil, who appeared extremely confident about promotion only a few weeks ago. After their recent relegation from the Premier League, the parachute payments have helped with the club strength quite significantly in almost all areas of the pitch.

After having suffered only one defeat since August, the team have now failed to win in the last four games of all competitions. Manager Neil will probably remember the recent loss against Brighton more than the three other games. He has branded the defeat as the worst in his career. The young manager will know how to find a way to arrest the slide, or face the risk of dropping out of the play-offs altogether.

Alex Neil Wants Consistent Performances from Kyle Lafferty

Norwich City have been quite open about the search for a new forward and this has put the future of striker Kyle Lafferty in question.


When asked if the striker was a potential candidate to leave in the summer transfer window, manager Alex Neil claimed that Lafferty had to be more consistent in his performances in order to have a future at Carrow Road. This comes as a direct hint that the club may be prepared to sell him in the last few days of the transfer window. Lafferty spent the last season on loan at Birmingham City.

The player, however, has struggled to establish himself in the last few seasons. Since the 2014-15 campaign, Lafferty has played in three different leagues for three different times. However, he has managed a grand total of 44 games with a return of just five goals. It is seriously starting to threaten his career at the top level. There is a danger of Lafferty being deemed as not being good enough even for the Scottish Premier League. Still just 28 years old, the striker has made 52 appearances for Northern Ireland since his debut in 2006. However, his career has been on a downward spiral for the last few years ever since he decided to leave Rangers.

Norwich City chief executive has resigned after his side defeat against Manchester United


Norwich City chief executive David McNally has apparently resigned from his job on Saturday. In a tweet just after the defeat against Manchester United, McNally has stated that he has resigned from his job and that he now hopes that the club will be able to progress. This came after a fan called him to leave on Twitter.

The Norwich City board of directors has issued a statement saying that they have accepted David McNally resignation and that they thanked him for everything he has done for the club. Indeed, McNally has taken charge of Norwich City at a period where the club was drowning under considerable debts, and he has taken them from the bottom of league one to the Premier League.

Norwich has lost a key man in the resignation of David McNally since he was the one that was managing the club on a day-to-day basis. He joined the club in 2009 at a time where Norwich was stuck in the bottom of league one and having some significant debts. Under the guidance of McNally, Norwich has managed to clear all their external debts and win successive promotions to the top flight. Continue reading 'Norwich City chief executive has resigned'»

Norwich City has a dilemma on their hands as Alex Neil

The Norwich City has a dilemma on their hands as Alex Neil is having trouble determining whether or not he wants to risk putting Nathan Redmond in for the weekend battle versus Newcastle United. If there’s more injury, it could be more serious or provoke a worse injury than the original ankle injury.

The ankle injury was a sudden jolt for the Norwich midfielder which came during a 0 to 0 draw versus Manchester City. This happened in mid-March and has only recently started returning to training to make a recovery and to hopefully jump back into the field. This week, he’s been busy doing rigorous training and trying everything to ensure that his ankle will be fully healed for the next game.

Alex Neil is kind of on the fence but must act fast and is being put under the microscope to make a fast decision. Making a fast decision could end badly but if Redmond feels that he’s ready to play, he might just be ready to play. Newcastle and Norwich have a history of having a hard rivalry so this game is very important for both sides involved. Neil stated in the Eastern Daily press that his ankle was recovering just fine and while he has joined back into the team, the decision to whether or not he’ll be able to play is going to be a last minute decision.
