The club invested a great sum of money on a number of players in the summer of 2013 in the hope that Premier League status would be secure, but too many of these signings have not delivered the goods.
to an end?
Yes Chris was the manager and the buck stops with him, as he's the man that picks the team, but other people have a lot to answer for, seemingly content to hide behind Chris while he takes all the stick.
However, Chris knows that football is a results based business, and quite simply he didn't win enough games over the last few months.
The team played eight games in this period, six Premier League fixtures and two FA Cup ties, and they didn't win any of the eight.
One of the reasons given for sacking Chris on Monday was the poor run of results, picking up just four points from the last six games, Chris might have argued that it was seven points from his last seven games.
Festive failings should have led to January change for Norwich City
They should have made that decision far sooner than they did in order to give a successor an adequate amount of time to turn the tide.
I believe Chris should have gone in January after a really poor run of results from December 15 until January 14.
The 1 0 defeat against Nike Kyrie Wolf Gray
From December 15 to February 11 the club won just one game in 13, but nothing happened.
However this was described as "relegation form". In the six league games in that period from mid December to mid January the team only won three points. Was that not relegation form?

You look back at certain results, the seven conceded at the Etihad, 4 0 at the Emirates, and another four conceded at Old Trafford in October, and you have to think that maybe the board should have reacted then.

One of the biggest factors to go against Chris would have been his summer transfer dealings and the amount of money that was spent.
fellow strugglers West Brom last Saturday, which plunged the club closer to the relegation zone, was the final straw and David McNally and the board of directors decided that with five games to go it was time for a change.
Wolfswinkel in particular stands out as a piece of business that would have hurt Chris' cause, although I do believe we are yet to see the real van Wolfswinkel.
I have to admit when I heard that the club had sacked Chris last Sunday night Nike Zoom Air Pegasus 32 Flash I was shocked, but only because of the timing.
