A lot of wrongs can be put right come Sunday lunchtime if Norwich beat their old enemies Ipswich Town after they’ve made the short journey up the A140 to Carrow Road.

I’ve played over 750 games in my career and have watched hundreds of games over the years, but never in my life have I seen a team score five better goals in one game than Norwich did last weekend against Nottingham Forest.

I can understand supporters’ frustrations after the 2-2 draw against Wigan.

If I’m honest I don’t know too much about the two new faces that arrived at Colney in the final hours of Tuesday’s transfer window deadline.

Ryan Mason suffered an horrendous fractured skull last Sunday after a shocking clash of heads with Gary Cahill – purely accidental on Gary’s part I hasten to add.

I joined Norwich City way back in July 1997 and played for the club for seven years and apart from a brief spell away (five years to be exact) I’ve lived back in the city for the past seven years.

What more incentive could the Norwich City players want for their FA Cup replay against Southampton than a plum home tie against Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal?

The Boxing Day defeat against Reading saw us reach the halfway point of a very poor season so far for Norwich City.

The last time Huddersfield Town beat Norwich at Carrow Road I was only one years old, so I guess the Terriers were well overdue a win.

Tonight sees an end to a very busy week for Norwich City when another of my former clubs visit Carrow Road in what promises to be another tense evening in front of the floodlights.

It has been a while coming, but I think you’ll all agree with me that Norwich City’s first win since October 15 was certainly worth the wait with that comprehensive 5-0 demolition of Brentford.

What a sad day Tuesday was when the news broke that Brazilian League One club Chapecoense had lost nearly all their playing and coaching staff when their airplane crashed just before it landed at Medellin airport in Columbia.

England captain Wayne Rooney was hammered after pictures appeared of him, wearing his England tracksuit, drinking until 5am at a wedding party in the same hotel as he and his team-mates were staying after the Scotland game and before the Spain game on the Tuesday night.

Not many people know this, but I played my very last professional game down at Loftus Road, back in 2005.

The defeat at the hands of Leeds was Norwich City’s fourth in a row and I think it’s fair to say that it’s now a mini crisis – especially when you see that top-of-the-table Newcastle sit 10 points clear of the Canaries and second-placed Brighton are seven.

Embarrassing, humiliating, spineless – just a few of the words that can be used to describe Norwich City’s abject performance down at the Amex Stadium. And Alex Neil can ill afford too many more performances like that.

I only ever played at Elland Road twice and even though I didn’t lose there it was quite an intimidating place to play.

It’s Preston for the lads this weekend – they’re managed by a good friend of mine in Simon Grayson.

I really felt for Wayne Rooney when he was booed by sections of the English fans at Wembley.

Fair play to the lads last weekend up at Molineux – it was the perfect response everyone was looking for after the major disappointment of losing in the manner they did against Newcastle.

Last season’s two games against Newcastle yielded 13 goals and this week the two clubs served up a fascinating encounter at St James’s Park in what turned out to be a remarkable game.

It’s been a fantastic few days for Norwich City.

All in all not a bad few days from Alex Neil’s men. Two home wins, five goals scored and Norwich City are back up to fourth in the Championship just two points behind early pacesetters Huddersfield Town.

It was honours even down at Portman Road – and I have to be honest, neither team did enough to win the game.

We haven’t had to wait long for the first East Anglian derby of the new season have we, with the short trip down the A140 facing the lads and a couple of thousand Norwich fans on Sunday.

I was driving back down the M6 last Saturday night after the Birmingham v Cardiff game when I was passed by a few Norwich City fans making the long journey back home after that terrific opening day win at Ewood Park.

Well, here we are on the eve of what’s going to be one tough Championship season.

It’s 9.10am on Wednesday and I’ve just boarded the train from St Malo in Brittany to Lyon in the south-east of France where Wales face Portugal tonight in the European Championship semi-final.

No one person is bigger than any football club and I think we all need to remember that.

One down, three games to go and the lads really need to get back to winning ways otherwise it’s the drop back into the Championship after just one season back in the Premier League.

The game at the Emirates tomorrow evening is the first of four crucial games for Norwich City as they try and remain a Premier League club.

I have to say that the result against Sunderland really did take me by surprise.

The big games just keep coming and tomorrow is no exception when City travel to Selhurst Park in what is another six-pointer.

It was a great point for the Canaries against Manchester City - the players and Alex Neil can take a lot of heart from their performance.

I really felt for the Norwich City supporters that made the long journey to Wales.

It’s desperate times for Norwich City, who have now taken just one point from a possible 24 in their last eight games and dropped back into the bottom three after Tuesday night’s defeat against a rejuvenated Chelsea.
