'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Forces2Canaries Statement



In light of the numerous disastrous decisions and managerial appointments which have taken place at Norwich City Football Club over a prolonged period of time, which this last weekend has seen the relegation of OUR football club to the third tier of English football for the first time in 49 years, the Committee of the Forces2Canaries Supporters Group wishes to place on record that is has no reliance or belief in the current members of the Board.

We are unable to support the Board, and feel unable to trust or have any belief in any decisions they make, for and on behalf of OUR football club. Whilst accepting that the Board have acted in a manner they considered to be the best for NCFC, it is abundantly clear that many mistakes have been made, which have been recurring and ruinous, and this can not be allowed to continue.

The Committee of Forces2Canaries expects that the Board take urgent and decisive action, and are appalled at last evening`s statement which has done nothing but state the obvious. We expect changes of personnel within the boardroom, and until this takes place the Forces2Canaries Committee will be unable to support the members of the Board and their decision making.

Furthermore, we believe any decision to appoint Bryan Gunn as First Team Manager, yet again goes to show the ineptitude and denial the members of the Board are under, as they will be rewarding failure and will be taking the easy option, in appointing a Manager with no previous experience, and who is still 'cutting his teeth` in football management.

We will always support OUR football team, and whilst we may not agree with future managerial appointments, we will always support the manager and the players. The current Board are purely custodians of OUR football club, and we the Supporters will still be here long after they have moved on.

Firstly i would like to disagree with the opinion B.Gunn as our manager,he was appointed after only 1 game as caretaker and after "The Board" went for the sympathy vote after B.Gunns daughter launched an online appeal.This also go to show what a loads of crap the board are.B.Gunn is using all his connections to get the job and K.Piper got him on About Anglia during the week to canvas his application.But B.Gunn is a cheap option.Someone told me the other day as well that N.Doncaster is on 170,000 a year,well sorry heres your coat pal. I hope and pray members of the board do the honorable thing and walk and we get a decent manager.

Thing is people, we need other people to take over, and from what Mick Dennis said recently after speaking to Keith Harris, there ain't NOBODY willing too, so we're stuck at the moment.
