    Didn't they lose pretty much every game after November and stay up anyway? Heroic.

    I was just looking at their Wiki page for that season. They beat Boro on 6th December then won 1 more game until the end of the season, which was in March against Fulham.

    Just checked, they were 6th at Christmas and then won once after that - an injury time Manucho winner at Fulham - but still stayed up by a point (this was the year when Alan Shearer's Newcastle lost x games in a row at the end, just pipping them to relegation).

    In fact, they won twice after 25 October.

    Blackpool did the same thing but I think managed to go down.

    Knocking about in the Spanish third division now at '36' years old.

    Edit: Wiki is wrong, he left them last month and has yet to find a new club.

    Bolton were top after seven games in 2001/02 and then fell to bits, but at least they managed forty points.

    The problem for Norwich is they had everyone watching so itís going to be impossible to rewrite the narrative as they wonít have anyone watching when they do. Itís like Fat Sam having a rep for doing Arsenal despite having a 4-26 record. Itís about winning the ones when the press have nothing better to do.

    Saw Norwich in their last friendly last week and Jamal Lewis looked quality. Thought he looked alright last night too, although why he was told to mark Van Dijk at set pieces was a mystery.

    Reckon he'll be Norwich's breakout player this year.

    What the Dickens was Fabianski up to for that last goal? Sterling seems to have some Paul McKenna shit in his locker for those situations.

    1-0 up and Potter makes a double change, brings on two strikers.

    Andone scores with his first touch for 2-0.

    Itís mental Scotland are shite when they have the two best left backs in the world as well as the best box to box midfielder. Ryan Fraser canít be far off top ten in the world either.

    Solid if unspectacular 2-0 win over Blackburn. Much more like it, still things to work on but nice to kick off the home games with a win.

    Good to see both Cairney and Mitrovic get goals too. Iím also pleasantly surprised at how well Arter fit in after only joining in the week.

    Bringing in Alexis and sacrificing Martial for him has to be one of the most disastrous footballing decisions in recent memory.
