3. Peter Grant
For Peter Grant, there’s an argument that his first managerial job at Norwich City arrived without the necessary experience he required. The Scot took the reins at Carrow Road in 2006, replacing long-serving and popular boss Nigel Worthington. City were in a spell of transition, and Grant was tasked with stabilising a ship that had blown off course following relegation and was perceived to be underperforming.
Grant’s first season saw the Canaries finish in 16th place. In the summer of 2007 Grant prepared for his first full season in charge at Carrow Road by signing Jamie Cureton, Jon Otsemobor, David Marshall. He also signed Julien Brellier and David Strihavka, both of whom struggled to perform and left by January. The 2007/8 season started decently but a run of six games within a win or a goal led to him departing the club.
2. Bryan Hamilton
With the departure of Bruce Rioch in March 2000, Bryan was placed in charge of the first team. He made his impression on the club by releasing Mike Milligan, Shaun Carey, Che Wilson, Kevin Parker, Matthew Joynson, and Darren Way. However, he wasn’t able to turn around the fortunes of the East Anglian side, who slumped to their fifth successive defeat in the autumn of 2000. Hamilton resigned in December 2000, leaving the fans infuriated.
1. Glenn Roeder
Following the departure of Peter Grant, Glenn Roeder was appointed as the manager of Norwich City in October 2007. It was expected of him to improve Norwich’s performances and push for promotion. It wasn’t to be so as the team struggled consistently. He managed an overall of 65 games and won 20 of them, losing 30. His attitude towards the team was disliked by the fans, and as a result, he is no.1 in our list of worst Norwich City managers ever.
