This year marks the 113th birthday of Norwich City. I have to confess I haven’t done the exact maths, but I estimate the Canaries have played more than 5,500 matches since being formed in 1902.
I’ve got a slightly surreal mixture of feelings as I write this column from the breakfast restaurant in the Holiday Inn hotel at Carrow Road on the morning after the hugely disappointing home defeat to Wigan.
So, 15 games to go, 45 points up for grabs, 10 days to go until the biggest derby day for years.
I normally write two or three sentences about my “hero of the week”. This week I’m dedicating my whole column to an amazing man who will be a true hero to me forever more.
We’re now well in to the second half of the season and it’s getting towards the business end of another football campaign. There is time for things to change, but I’m pretty sure that the Canaries are now in an eight-horse promotion race.
