Respected BBC football journalist Pat Murphy tweeting
"Hearing that @NorwichCityFC will confirm Pardew over next 48 hrs."
With The Daily Telegraph also reporting similar under the headline
"Norwich City want Alan Pardew as new manager after sacking Alex Neil"
Now personally I would much rather have Rowett as the other strong contender, appointing Pardew would just remind me a it too much of the appointments of Roeder and Hughton - big name managers that just didn't work out for us
