Oh dear, oh dear… City, City, City…
Sadly, the chance for a turnaround was the two games after the two wins when Norwich failed to win either. That’s where the confidence and belief COULD have come from. Now the (very possibly) record-breaking lack of goals is coming to the fore.
Close season? £60M appallingly spent. Might as well have spent nothing, City would still be bottom with a nice wad tucked in Delia’s moneybelt.
Imminent January transfer window? I suspect very little money will be available – short of selling three players. But who’d want them? AND every club around Norwich will be spending in January – and far more than City.
I am unable to create any sort of cogent argument for Norwich staying up. Ironically there several terrible teams in the division this time around, but Norwich won’t finish above them, because they’re worse.
I’m very much fed up with us being the joke club. Financially we are a bottom half of League One team. That’s the truth.
Sadly, what all the critics are saying is more or less true. We don’t belong anywhere near the elite. We are punching ludicrously above our weight. That cannot possibly last. The direction is inevitably going south – funnily more or less to where Ipswich are.
It’s so depressing. I’m off to watch the snooker. Or Bake Off. Or anything else…
Ultimately it’s so sad as prior to Delia and Michael taking over we were not only threatening to be part of the elite, we were part of the elite (21 out of 24 seasons in the top flight, two Champions League equivalent finishes, a cup win and two cup semi-finals).
Why are we not still there and how did fourth division clubs like Brighton and Brentford (and recently Bournemouth and Fulham) overtake us?
The bottom line is ‘self-funding’ has a ceiling. We’re currently above that, trapped in the crawl space – shortly to come crashing back down into the through-lounge.
However – there is hope, something to cling onto, something to get excited about…
We have a new badge! (Which probably cost as much as Sam McCallum! – It’s one success story after another..)
Cheer me up, someone!
