Lets Be 'Aving You


With it being the week for some World Cup qualifying matches, it does of course mean the domestic footie season is temporarily on hold. Which is normally a bit irritating, but in Norwich's case, it might just be the breathing space we need to get our heads together and bounce back from the disastrous start we've made to the season. Having been relegated - narrowly - from the Premiership last season we have managed to keep most of our best players whilst buying a few more, so ought to be reasonably confident of being one of the best teams in the fur-coat-and-no-knickers league (sorry I do of course mean "The Championship" as it's now rather grandiosely called - sorry to everyone involved in said naming, you can dress it up all you like but you can't get away from the fact that it's the second tier of English soccer and therefore one layer below where we really want to be).

So with all that talent at our disposal, why does our current record stand at 3 Draws, 3 Losses and ZERO Wins ? Over-confidence ? Resting on laurels ? A complete under-estimation of how tough it was actually going to be ? Whatever the reason, in the words of Delia on that fateful night last night, LET'S BE 'AVING YOU and give us the first win of many this Saturday !

Eeek - Northern Ireland 1, England 0 with 12 minutes left. Flippin' Ada.

I'd gloat but Wales lost agin.

Why don't they just be honest and rename the Championship Division 2 like what it was back when I was a child.

That would be less confusing (and more honest).
