one match that sums up a season

One match that sums up a season is an apt description of Norwich City's 4-1 away defeat at Sheffield Wednesday yesterday.

First half we dominate; golden goal from Huckerby; lots of possession and creating chances but failing to put any away.

Second half we lose concentration and start making mistakes letting Sheff Wed not only into the game but letting them score 4 as our defence does its' familiar disappearing trick.

It is true that Wednesday were still in danger of relegation and we were safe (just) but the huge travelling support deserved more.

The only other highlight was the fantastic send-off for Dion Dublin-what a legend!

At last this rollercoaster of a season is over. When we were not only bottom but 5 points adift relegation seemed an absolute certainty. What a difference Glenn Roeder made with some awesome loan players and a 13 match unbeaton run made us dream of the play-offs. Norwich being Norwich though we flirted with the relegation zone before finally making ourselves safe.

This summer needs some serious buying and rebuilding. We will now see how good Roeder is. Massive investment is needed. Dela needs to sell lots of books. Regular crowds of 25000+ deserve more than a great stadium and unique Delia branded restaurant, bistro, diner and hotel.

Roll on next season. ON THE BALL CITY!
