Close friends call him Ecky.

Nothing to do with his name. Back in the day he was some boy for the disco biscuits.

Why? He’s been fired from his last two jobs for being Keek.

The problem here is the OP hasn’t told us what he means by his statement

Indeed. A manager on a downward trajectory isn’t what we need.

Keek after periods of relative success at both clubs. Not like he was an absolute failure at either.

Whether it’s a done deal or not we likely won’t find out until the league’s won

Will we not sack the current manager before hiring a new one ?

He’ll be given other duties including reviewing the medical department but put on a back shift to avoid him interfering with the first team.

Based on recent managers, maybe he thinks the job description involves being a poor tactician and crap judgement in the transfer market.

McInnes and Robinson, two other names mentioned as Neilson's replacement, were also sacked at their last jobs down south before coming up and here and having some success to a degree. 

 

Most managers end up getting sacked at some point these days. Doesn't mean that they're all terrible.

We either go with a manager on a supposed downward trajectory- 

McInnes 

Neill

 

Or one on a upward trajectory but unproven at a bigger club -

Goodwin 

Davidson 

McCann (he seems to have got ICT going but yes it’d be a huge risk, especially given what’s happened the last 5 years)

 

Or someone new to management

We called him Ecky Thump at school or Thumper. Had a good punch on him. Used to live next door to me and I called him Wee Eckers. He loved that

Neil is highly thought of by Norwich fans.  Like all Norwich managers, including the current one, their board hasn’t backed them well when they have been promoted

Used to play left back for us a few years ago. We used to call him Adam Eckersley. Shame to see he's lost all of his ginger hair.

Norwich have been one of those clubs for a while now who seem too good for the Championship but can't hack it in the PL. Doesn't help if the board aren't backing managers.

 

I'd think Preston fans would think of him somewhat highly too. Actually gave them hope of promotion which was pretty incredible for a club like them.

Have a mate who's a Preston fan and he points to Neil not being properly backed financially after losing key players .

 

Would be a logical appointment therefore can't see it happening lol

Putting Stendel aside, (and puppet Cathro) the first managerial appointment which hasn’t been in the jobs for boys network since Paulo Sergio in August 2011.

 

Every reason to be excited about this appointment, finally a change to the pish we have had to swim through for half a decade + and can move forward now. 

 

*If true* we must give him time and taper expectations for next season. Give Alex Neil three transfer windows and the time. Have a look at things when 2022-2023 is underway.
