Some of the best Chris Hughton sacked jokes after the shock announcement that he had been dismissed as Norwich City manager on Sunday night.
A poor 0-1 home defeat to fellow strugglers West Brom at the weekend disappointed the fan base and the coach was even hit by an item of club merchandise thrown from the stands following the final whistle.
After twenty months in charge, Hughton along with assistants Colin Calderwood and Paul Trollope have left the club – leaving youth coach Neil Adams as the new manager with just five games left to play.
However the recent run of four defeats in our last six Premier League games and six consecutive away league defeats, left the Club with no choice but to act, with five games still to play in the current campaign.
