I would suggest that Saturday’s first half was probably the most impressive and sustained attacking display from City under Daniel Farke.

It would be dangerous to draw too many conclusions, either positive or negative, from City’s trip to Birmingham last week.

It doesn’t seem five minutes since I was walking away, embarrassed, from Hillsborough, but after one of the best World Cups that I can remember, the Championship season is already upon us.

Amidst all of the untrammelled emotion of Wexit a rather entertaining football match eventually broke out at Carrow Road against Leeds.

As City’s disappointing season meanders towards its seemingly interminable close, games and results have become almost secondary to statistics, which are being pored in over in much the same way that an ancient Roman oracle might study the entrails of a freshly-sacrificed sheep.

At least we can now resolve the long-standing debate about how to improve the atmosphere at Carrow Road. If the EFL were to appoint Tim Robinson to referee all of City’s home games I’m convinced that we would have plenty of noise.

When Timm Klose, finding no one open ahead of him, turned and played the ball back to Angus Gunn from the halfway line to an undertone of boos halfway through last Saturday’s first half I feared the worst.

I won’t dwell on City’s defeat at QPR, partly because I wasn’t at the game, but also because by all accounts it was an awful City performance with few, if any, mitigating factors.
