NORWICH City fans are up in the arms about their team's stuttering start to the new season.

The Canaries, who dropped to third from bottom after a goalless draw at home to Scunthorpe on Tuesday night, are disenchanted with what is happening at Carrow Road.

City fan Jo Anderson suggested one of the biggest things the team had been missing was a Braveheart who would drive the club forward.

Duncan Forbes, Andy Linighan, Dave Watson, Steve Bruce and Malky Mackay were all listed as previous examples of the kind of on-the-pitch leadership currently needed.

Ben Towns, a dissatisfied season ticket holder, was frank about his thoughts for the future.

“I am very concerned we no longer have any crown jewels - I cannot think of one player who we could sell for a decent amount,” he said.

“I am not very optimistic about NCFC at the moment and cannot see that changing. I hope things turn around soon or we could be in real trouble.”

The sombre mood was reflected in the thoughts of another dissatisfied season ticket holder.

“If we ever needed more investment now is the time,” said the fan.

“I have children who will soon become disillusioned along with a vast amount of young supporters and that means the support will reduce dramatically and you then have a downward spiral which will be very hard to arrest taking us who knows where.”

City fan Guy Williams was not much brighter in his opinion about the current state of the club.

“I'm seriously worried about the future of this football club unless changes at the top are made,” he said.

“We will not continue to enjoy full houses at Carrow Road indefinitely. We have wasted opportunities, Premier-ship money, land money, parachute payments etc.”

However a message from HMS Ark Royal paints a more positive picture of the current situation - even if the club has no money.

“This club can do well and has done well without money - I didn't see Worthington spending massively to reach the play-offs or to win the Championship.”
