Hark at us flying along?!
Three points against Swansea, or more importantly no points for Swansea, and we’re in the top half of the table, best of the new boys and above Arsenal. Heck, it’s only October but still, we can be excused for enjoying the moment a little.
You never know we may never have to leave this division if the ‘Foreign Owners’ get their way. It’s fantasy at the minute, but money talks. Penniless clubs scraping a living have redundant vocal chords, sheepishly following where the money may lie.
Even if we were still up in the Premier League when said hypothetical decision was made, I would want no part of it. While none of us would relish the thought of a relegation battle, we would quickly yearn for that stomach-knotting excitement.
Vested interests from the owners, them who pay the bills lest we forget, and they no doubt think they have our interests at heart an’all. Or they’ll tell you that. This won’t or shouldn’t, go through at anytime in anyone’s future but the mere mention of it leaves a bit of a bad taste.
Anyway, if we’re still knocking about for it to cut us off from those beneath us we’ll have plenty of seats to go around. Or we’ll have tickets that are available for more than an hour before selling out anyway.
Then, when the ‘Foreign Owner’s’ rules come in we’ll all fall out of love with football and slide away from visiting Carrow Road to watch stale, dried out football. This sort of thing wouldn’t happen to us, mind. Unlucky and Norwich don’t go hand in hand.
