Worthy Sacked After Clarets Defeat

Worthy Sacked After Clarets Defeat

Norwich manager Nigel Worthington has been sacked, following today's home defeat to the Clarets.

Steve Cotterill's side completely bossed a Norwich side on their own turf, and after a recent poor run after a good start to the season, Worthington has been shown the door.

As we go into the international break, Burnley are sitting pretty at third in the table, but the next two weeks could be the biggest of our season, with two big managerial vacancies in the division, with West Brom added to the vacancy at Carrow Road.

Reports are already linking Steve Cotterill with the WBA job, and it seems a simple equation that he will now be linked with the Norwich job after our blossoming start to the season.

The next two weeks will no doubt make interesting viewing, as these former Premiership outfits scramble to appoint a boss with the capabilities to take them back there.

The fuss and furore surrounding the protests and eventual dismissal of Nigel Worthington has detracted from the fact that Burnley played a ruddy good game this afternoon, and left Norwich looking like a side of nearly-men. Well done, Burnley, on your victory. And thanks for helping Norwich supporters get their wish of ousting Worthington. The hope is, now, that this game was enough to persuade Steve Cotterill to stay put. Then we will all be happy. Norwich Editor.

Thanks for the kind words u4e. I hope you can soon put all this behind you and begin to put some good results together. I live locally in Cambs and amazingly, I just watched a 'Worthy Gone' bit of News on Anglia and they mentioned losing 4-1, the red card, Worthy's problems, the home crowd's calls for out but in two minutes of****they failed to mention one thing! The team that beat them! My gawd its true nobody likes us!

Tell me about it! The very first year of the Premiership and Norwich led the way until Christmas, and finished the season in third place. Watching television now about that year and Norwich is hardly mentioned. The same when we got relegated a couple of seasons ago. A 6-0 hammering would normally be of national interest, but Worst Brom got all the attention. Just hope that Burnley can keep it up, instead of the annual fall-off after Christmas. And you deserve it after fighting against relegation so many times. A word though, about promotion. it was one heck of a come down after a season of winning almost everything to being the poor relation amongst the top teams.
