Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
6-0 is nice but I'm not really sure what we can read into the Carabao cup win, Sen. Norwich had 10 changes from the side that lost 6-0 to Man City but I don't know (and am ignorant about) how many of them are likely to get selected for a Premiership game.
It never(to me) seems to be a high priority trophy for the bigger clubs. I did get to Wembley to see Norwich lose to Villa 1975 when it was the League Cup.
Just maybe, you could take some hope from the Leicester game. I caught a bit of game updates on the BBC thing dad watches (or can be glued to...) and I read the BBC match report. My impression was Norwich played quite well and didn't "deserve" to loose.
But that's how things go. Maybe better to follow, I don't know but having Liverpool, Man C and Leicester in your first few games isn't the easiest of starts.
