Overreaction Theatre: Weeping Norwich CEO splits opinion

Only last week, Norwich fans rounded on CEO David McNally after he publicly threatened manager Chris Hughton with the sack if the Canaries slipped into the relegation zone.

That drew strong criticism, as rumours intensified that McNally – who also claimed he would prefer “death over relegation” – was lining up Malky Mackay as his replacement.

After the surprise 1-0 win over Tottenham though, former Celtic and Fulham director McNally was overcome with joy, breaking down in tears at the final whistle.

It was later reported that he had suffered a family bereavement which is a far more likely reason for his emotional state than a 1-0 home win.

Opinion was split about this outpouring of emotion – and it was predictably rather extreme…

COMMITTED!

CRYBABY!

THE REAL REASON?

YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING

Now this is a controversial one in that Christian Eriksen is clearly a very good player. But Spurs fans were hysterically angry that he wasn’t in the team against Norwich, using Tottenham’s overall poor performance as justification for their anti-Sherwood tone.

The thing is, with Nacer Chadli apparently rated ahead of the Dane, Spurs have won seven of their last 10 matches. So to react with such fury when things don’t go your way for once seems somewhat childish to us…

If ‘one of..’ means ‘one of the top 50’, maybe…

No you’re not lost for words are you – you’ve just typed a dozen of them!

ROONEY JUSTIFIES PAY PACKET!

Oh give over – a decent finish against Crystal Palace does not justify £300k/week. Do it against Bayern Munich or Barcelona and then we’re talking…

This is actually quite funny…
