To paraphrase the seminal Beatles track, ?All we are saying?is give us a goal.?
Having not scored in their last two matches the Canaries have now worryingly slipped back to within just a couple of defeats form the dreaded pull of the drop zone.
Glenn Roeder has already voiced his concerns at his side's lack of goals, and the fact that only third from bottom Leicester have a lower 'goals scored' tally with just one less than City's 35 strikes in the league this season is the reason why the Canaries could be in for a tense and nervy ride between now and the end of the season unless they improve in front of goal, when they could have been forgiven for thinking that they'd have been able to put their feet up by now.
It doesn't matter how well or badly a side plays, goals, of course, win games.
City delivered an improved effort in midweek on that which saw them defeated at Coventry last Saturday, and despite not being at their most fluent best against Stoke or as productive as they would have liked they still created enough decent chances in front of goal to have altered the scoreline.
The best two fell to Jamie Cureton who, given that he had notched three goals in his previous four matches was the one person who you'd have wanted with the ball at his feet in those situations.
Strangely for Cureton though, he failed to capitalise at a time when his confidence must have been higher than it has been for some time.
To single out Cureton as being wholly responsible for the mid-week defeat though would be remiss, because as good as his two scoring opportunities undoubtedly were, the fact that they were the only two gilt-edged chances created in the contest has to be a shared responsibility.
True, City did test Stoke 'keeper Carlo Nash on a couple of other occasions from distance and once via the head of Ched Evans, but this was far from an example of the proverbial one-way traffic scenario either.
The last seven league games have yielded just four goals from Norwich ? an statistic that would have been laughed at had it been predicated immediately after a Ched Evans' brace at Cardiff had just sent City to within just four points of the play-off places ? and it goes without saying that it has to be better sooner rather than later.
Evans could be set for a recall at Bramhall Lane tomorrow after impressing as a substitute on Tuesday night, and with Gary Doherty available for selection again and Darren Huckerby close to a return Roeder could have options available to him in all departments of the team.
Ironically enough, City face an opponent tomorrow having only recently just hit a spot of form.
Victories at Plymouth last weekend and at home to Coventry in mid-week has eased Sheffield United's own relegation worries somewhat, after the Blades had found themselves just four points off the drop zone in the first week of this month courtesy of seven games without a win.
The home side can reach the magical 50-point mark though with a third successive victory tomorrow, and boss Kevin Blackwell has said his side will have every chance of doing so provided they continue to fight in the manner they did in midweek.
With 39 goals from their 37 league games to date, Sheffield United, like Norwich, have been anything but prolific in terms of scoring goals this season, but you just sense that the outcome will probably be decided by City's own success or failure in front of goal again more than anything else tomorrow.
