A lot of words have been used to describe City’s football this season; fluid, flowing, sexy, exhilarating to name but a few, but one which isn’t often mentioned is perhaps the most important; disciplined.
With a film about a Norwich wrestling family tearing up the box office, a Norwich actress ruling the roost at the Oscars and a Norfolk beach set to feature in a summer release, the eyes of the film world are very much honed in on our neck of the woods at the moment.
Daniel Farke joked he might put his feet up on the sofa on Saturday but only to watch Norwich City’s next opponents, not their title rivals, after Friday night’s 1-0 Championship win over Swansea City moved them five points clear.
Norwich City have stuck with the same starting XI for the fourth consecutive game, as Kenny McLean holds off the challenge of the fit-again Moritz Leitner in midfield for tonight’s Carrow Road clash with Swansea.
It’s scarcely more than a year since Mario Vrancic was widely derided as too slow and insufficiently physical to cut it in the Championship and Christoph Zimmermann was written off as a German fourth division defender – yet on Friday night both were absolutely central to City’s stunning statement of intent.
However unexpected it may be, Norwich City are in prime promotion position as the halfway point of the season approaches today – but a statement result at Blackburn would really get yellow hearts racing.
