Going forward, of course, in my little world if you deliver free and ubiquitous wifi across a city such as Norwich, not only could Phoebe have pushed out a pic off her mobile, better still she could have broadcast a live, video update.

A massive bonus for the Canaries is that Naismith will be able to hit the ground not just running, but sprinting. His Premier League experience alone is definitely worth the fee we paid.

The disappointing loss at Bournemouth seems to have stirred up emotions to fever pitch. If you took the time and trouble to travel down for the match, then you have every right to air your grievances albeit in a polite and humorous manner.
