Here's what Norwich's Irish lads should do next season

THE TWO lads have got important decisions on their hands.

Norwich were relegated from the Premier League last season, but flew straight back up in seriously impressive fashion.

Admittedly, the club were not surprised to go down last time, but they will be hoping to mount a much more serious survival challenge this season, and as a result, won't be in the business of messing around.

As a result, the two young Irishmen who are on the fringe of the squad will have a difficult decision to make with regards to their plan for next year.

Adam Idah is in an extremely peculiar position. At just 20 years of age, he has played in the Premier League, got relegated, and come straight back up.

He also lit up the FA Cup when he was still only 18, scoring a magnificent hat-trick. So we're going to be bold and suggest he sticks around. Teemu Pukki is obviously going to start ahead of him, but at 31 he may have a few injuries that will give Idah the chance to bag a few Premier League goals.

It's a risky move, but one that may pay off if he is to solidify himself as a Premier League player.

Andrew Omobamidele on the other hand, is in a very different situation.

He is, incredibly, still only 18 years of age. And while he ended up playing a pivotal part in Norwich's end-of-season promotion push, he only did so because of injuries suffered to other defenders.

While he impressed when given the chance, with some Irish managers comparing him to Rio Ferdinand, there is really no need to rush him into anything.

He should head back down to a solid Championship team where he can afford to make mistakes without being crucified. Cardiff under Mick McCarthy may be an idea, or Stoke.
