Yesterday Chris Hughton's Norwich side were beaten 1-0 by Pepe Mel's West Brom. Although the Canaries only took 4 points from their last six games they are still 5 points clear of the relegation zone, while that lead isn't too significant was it really bad enough to sack the manager?
Hughton has been in charge for roughly two seasons getting Norwich to 11th in the Premier League during his first season and this season gaining a draw against Man City and beating Tottenham.
Norwich's club statement reads "The decision has been taken to give the club the maximum chance of survival". The club have placed their faith in Norwich under 18s manager and former Norwich player, Neil Adams.
The Norwich fans and club alike will hope that Adams will keep them up, with their final five fixtures including some of the toughest opposition in the league with Fulham, Liverpool, Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal. Adams will be hoping he can get the best out of Ricky Van Wolfwinkel and Gary Hooper in order to keep their hopes of staying up alive.
With their final five fixtures including some of the toughest in the league, was it the right decision to sack a manager who knew all the players and staff well, or is it the ideal time to change manager hoping he can inspire a new belief and confidence in the players.
