So what exactly does City boss Peter Grant say to his players before they head out of the home team dressing-room and into the Carrow Road cauldron tomorrow night?
After all, he's probably said everything that it's possible to say to try to the Canaries already this season, be it prior to a game in the form of trying to lift the players so that they will perform, or especially afterwards when they've returned from the pitch having not done anything of the sorts.
Does he need to be ?Good cop…? and tell them how first-rate they are when they put their minds to it in the hope that it will galvanise them into overcoming the tense atmosphere that will more than likely greet them with when they exit the tunnel?
Or ?Bad cop…? by simply lambasting them early doors, rather than when it's already too late?
Whatever, he has to find a way of ensuring that the team avoid a repeat of the Wolves fiasco, as well as the equally lame manner in which they allowed Sheffield Wednesday to play out time after they had scored what turned out to be the winning goal on Saturday.
The Canaries look like frightened rabbits caught in the glare of the headlights in the dying minutes of the game at the weekend, seemingly unsure of what to do or which way to turn and completely devoid of any confidence whatsoever, and another home game barely 72 hours after they have just been booed off the pitch is probably the very last thing they need right now?
Because you simply can't see where a goal – let alone a desperately-needed victory – is going to come from at the moment.
City lacked a cutting edge in attack on Saturday. As despite showing encouraging signs of being able to retain possession better and moving the ball between themselves more quickly than has been the case in the majority of their games this season, never at any point in the game were the Sheffield Wednesday back four unduly troubled.
City lacked genuine penetration, being unable to work the ball into space in behind the Owls' rearguard or develop their attacks into decent shooting or crossing opportunities, and the 4-3-3 system that the City boss deployed his team in clearly wasn't having the desired effect.
Jamie Cureton looked lost acting as the lone central striker, and neither Darren Huckerby nor Chris Brown had much joy in the channels.
Saying that, citing an unsuitable formation as being in any way majorly responsible for the team's underachieving would be feeble to say the least, seeing as it isn't primarily formations or systems that have been the root cause of the Canaries failings.
No, tomorrow night ? as well as in games for the foreseeable future – is about bottle, heart and ? if you'll excuse the language ? good old-fashioned boll***s.
And the manger's biggest task might just be finding the right thing to say to make them show us that they've got it…
