Yes, if the Canaries move up, my husband will be at Carrow Road at every opportunity to watch the top teams play against us.
Still a fair way to go Sen and say the top 10 in the Championship are pretty competitive. Sheffield United (playing one more game) took pole position last evening, being 3 goals up against Villa but Villa pulled 3 goals back in the last 8 minutes (plus extra time).
If they do go up, the next challenge would be to stay up. Since I moved to Norfolk I think they went up under Nigel Worthington (to be ended by a disastrous last game when Norwich gave up against Fulham) and under Paul Lambert.
It seems a long while since they had better stability up there. Their best seasons were in the early days of the Premiership. They did finish 3rd one year and the next, become the first English team to beat Bayern Munich on their ground in the UEFA cup but then things went wrong (and there were a few questions over the then chairman, Robert Chase and his spending policy/the clubs finances). I doubt we’ll see those days again.
As said before, on off following with me but I've often at least kept an eye on things.
