It will hurt like Hell if they take our place in the Prem but congratulations are due to Norwich after achieving promotion to the Premiership tonight, thanks to a 1-0 victory at Portsmouth. That is back to back promotions for the country bumpkins who can't even boast about owning tractors! One amazing stat that illustrates their fighting spirit is the fact that they have scored in the 89th minute no less than twelve times this season. Now that is a never say die attitude!
Lambert has done a fantastic job since taking over and looks to be a management star of the future. If he has any sense, he will take another job quickly as I suspect the Canaries will fall off their perches in the top division. But good luck to them regardless.
How long is it since Norwich were in the Prem? Amazingly only 6 years! It just shows what you can achieve when a club is well run, well managed and when fans retain their faith. Hopefully we will not have to sink as far as Norwich did before we rise again but we should take a look at what they have done this year and learn a lesson.
Graham Paddon will be smiling in Heaven tonight. Please God we can sort things out so he watches Norwich play West Ham in the Prem next season!
