There seems to be two types of football fans. Those who feel lost on a Saturday afternoon without it by the first weekend of June and others who enjoy a well-earned break after a season of highs, lows, tension and drama.

After a season of late drama for Norwich City, it felt as though most in the stadium were anticipating a late Blackburn flourish on Saturday night.

The two and a half hours that elapsed between City's players dropping to their knees at the Bet365 Stadium and Brentford beating Leeds on Monday encapsulated the rollercoaster ride that is being a football fan.

It's a rhetoric that's been repeated by a lot of Norwich City fans in the past few months: "If you'd have told me we'd be in this position before the season started I'd never have believed you."

In a season of stand-out performers, it feels almost unfair that only one will hold the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy aloft at the end of the season.

The kind of football Daniel Farke has Norwich City playing has attracted plaudits far and wide - it has even sparked debate among fans as to which team was better; the current crop or Paul Lambert's promotion winners of 2011.

After another blockbuster at Carrow Road on Saturday, it was perhaps too much to ask for Sunday's televised double header to provide similar entertainment.

With every fixture that gets ticked off, there's an increasing feeling that Norwich City are about to approach the home straight of this nine-month marathon.
