After just two months at the club Mike Phelan decided to move on to pastures new and looks set to work with his good friend and former Canary Steve Bruce at Hull City.

I used to love the games over the festive period – and I did quite well in them, scoring for Huddersfield, Leicester, Wolves and Norwich on Boxing Day.

City travel to Derby tomorrow and I’ve got to admit I used to love playing against the Rams during my career.

If Norwich City ever needed to grind out a 1-0 result it was against Wigan – and that is exactly what the lads did.

Iwan Roberts went from bad guy to local hero.

For probably the first time this season the Norwich City faithful turned on Neil and the players as well as the board of directors.

It must have been a bitter pill to swallow come five o’clock on Saturday afternoon as Norwich City lost their second consecutive away game in five days.

With 10 games gone it’s a good time to reflect and take stock of the start your team has made to the season. I think the table starts to take shape and you get a good idea of where you will finish the season – well there or thereabouts anyway.

I don’t care what anyone says you can’t keep giving teams a two-goal start and expect your forwards to keep getting you out of jail.

All in all it’s been a very good transfer window for Norwich City – Neil has strengthened the squad superbly whilst only losing players who probably thought their futures were elsewhere.
