Man-of-the-moment Leroy Lita admitted it was a special feeling to get his Carrow Road career up and running after his three-goal haul in last night's stunning 5-2 success over Wolves.
Wanderers went into the match as league leaders and with the doom and gloom merchants evident in Norfolk, not many dared predict a City draw, let alone win.
But in what must be their most impressive performance of 08/09, they simply crushed Mick McCarthy's men with a swagger that belied their lowly position.
And the shining star on a sparkling night for the 24,000 crowd was undoubtedly the hat-trick hero ? even if two of his goals had a touch of the 'OG' about them.
But if Lita's City spell had started slowly, it certainly fired into life under the Carrow Road floodlights.
“It was a great night for myself and the team,” on-loan Lita told Canaries World. “We've all worked really hard in the last couple of weeks and Saturday we didn't get the result.
“But tonight the passing, the workrate and the closing down really paid off and we deserved the 5-2 win. I really enjoyed it out there and all the lads enjoyed it. We've worked hard recently and it's nice to see it pay off.”
However, as satisfying as a 5-2 success over Wolves is ? and we all know there is more than a little bit of needle between the two sets of fans ? thoughts must immediately turn to Saturday and a date with Doncaster Rovers.
For while City always seem to turn it on against the bigger teams – the Birminghams and Wolves' of this world – putting the lesser lights to the sword has always been a little more tricky.
And last night's perfect pick-me-up will mean nothing unless Glenn Roeder's men can go and notch win No 2 of the week against the struggling South Yorkshire side.
We all know what football supporters are about. Another near-packed house will be expecting big things now. 'Donny Rovers? Easy, three points in the bag'.
But it doesn't work like that, especially in the topsy-turvy world of the Championship.
And Lita summed up the mood perfectly. It must be a case of 'same again'. If the Canaries are flat, then Rovers are more than capable of bagging all three points.
“We've got to do what we did to Wolves against the other teams as well,” Lita added, with thoughts already focusing on Saturday's Carrow Road clash.
“Consistency is what makes you a good player ? and a good team – and we need more of that. Saturday is another big game and this result against Wolves will mean nothing if we don't win against Doncaster.
“We've got to make sure we're ready and work hard in training and go again on Saturday.”
Then, and only then, can the Canary faithful begin to hope that some sort of corner has been turned.
And last night's outstanding showing was just a glimpse of how good Norwich can be.
They are not the finished article yet ? far from it. But in sweeping aside the league leaders, the confidence will surely seep back into a squad that was beginning to lose its way.
And if everyone can gel in the same manner as last night, then who knows what's around the corner. This is Norwich City after all; they don't, as a rule, do things by halves.
“There are good players here and great potential. You look around, with 24,000 here and everything is there. But we've got to make sure we take one game at a time and not get carried away.
“Everyone will have enjoyed this result and I'm sure the fans did, but we've got to focus on Saturday now and another three points there.”
