I just have this little feeling folks that the Canaries are at a crossroads in their season at present.
There's no denying that only one defeat in the last 11 matches is a particularly impressive run of form by anyone's standards, but especially so in Norwich's case when you consider the dross that had preceded it.
And on that count Glenn Roeder is fully deserving of every last drop of praise that comes his way.
Norwich are now a considerably more solid outfit than they were barely two months ago, and all the old familiar failings in terms of confidence, self-belief, determination and desire have undoubtedly been addressed and rectified. And accordingly the standard of Norwich's football has naturally improved in sync with everything else.
But it would also be fair to highlight the fact that City haven't performed especially well now in five of their last six matches.
Now there's certainly valid argument in stating that considering that points have steadily been added to the board then there's hardly cause for undue concern.
After all, and as the high-rollers in the world of football would no doubt concur, the hallmark of good side is to continue to win or draw games when it isn't playing at its best. But sooner, rather than later, normal service needs to be resumed.
One dodgy performance or a defeat that was never in doubt for a side that is doing OK, but nothing more, is sometimes all it takes for the rot to set in as well as the disillusionment that invariably rides piggy-back on such misfortune to soon follow.
And so with only the highly impressive display at Selhurst Park to crow about amid these last six matches, perhaps you can empathise with my concern? A good, solid performance and a fully deserved victory is what the Canaries need right now, to blow away any lingering doubts of uncertainty and point them firmly in the right direction.
How they go about achieving that at Oakwell tomorrow against a side that isn't in the greatest form itself but which nevertheless has only suffered one defeat at home this season remains to be seen, and the City boss has to decide whether to stick with his two wide men in the orthodox 4-4-2 formation that failed by some distance against Bury in the FA Cup last Saturday, or more likely drop one of them to revert back to his usual three-man central midfield unit and just one wide player?
If that is indeed the case then Roeder must decide whether to axe Darren Huckerby or Lee Croft.
Huckerby, the one player who can turn a game on its head in an instant but who hasn't been anywhere near his best recently, or Croft who was as poor against Bury as he was outstanding in the previous game against Crystal Palace?
Indeed it needs the spirit and quality portrayed by everyone on duty at Selhurst Park again tomorrow in order to get the job done, plus a few cool heads in front of goal and a bit more accuracy with the finishing, and if that proves to be the case then City will certainly not be found wanting.
Anything less though, and the Canaries could easily find themselves back in the mire at five o'clock tomorrow.
