Norwich fans react on Twitter to Neil Adams' departure

Norwich City

Norwich City fans took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to have their say on Neil Adams' resignation.

Norwich City fans were decidedly active on Twitter on Monday afternoon, following news of manager Neil Adams’ resignation.

The Championship club announced Adams' departure on their official website, nine months after he replaced Chris Hughton, first as caretaker for the final five games of the 2013-14 Premier League season and later as permanent successor following their relegation.

Norwich sit seventh in the table at present, after coming through a poor run of one win in 10 to claim three victories in their last five games, but fell 2-0 to League One side Preston North End in the third round of the FA Cup at the weekend.

Adams, who was in his first job as a manager, will now take a break from football before returning to the club in an unidentified role next summer, and believes he has left the Canaries in a good position for a promotion push.

"I firmly believe that we are still on course for a crack at promotion back to the Premier League. That is where this club belongs," he said.

"However, I feel it is in the best interests of the team that an immediate change is made in order to ensure a positive impact on results.

"It goes without saying that I sincerely hope the team achieves success this season and I would like to say a huge thank you to the supporters who have backed me during my tenure as manager."

A former fan favourite, having made more than 200 appearances for Norwich in the 1990s, Adams got the club off to a blistering start to the Championship season which saw them top the table at the start of October.

Their subsequent collapse drew growing frustration among supporters, but a sizeable number appeared conflicted upon hearing the news of his departure.
