Dereham’s inability to score again cost them dearly as they exited the FA Cup.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m heartily sick of the transfer window. Whilst it’s a wonderful excuse for Sky to crank up the hyperbole and for Jim White to practice his hyperventilating, it’s a major distorting factor on the development of this season’s Premier League, particularly with the big kick-off occurring almost a month before deadline day.

Is it any wonder football managers seem to hate the current transfer system, which sees the window shut four weeks into the season?

All the faint praise from the national media this week highlighting Sunderland’s shortcomings shouldn’t be allowed to mask one of the most dominant away performances from City I’ve seen in years.

Wes Hoolahan has been one of the cornerstones of Norwich Citys Premier League campaign so far.

Regular readers of this column will know that I like the odd random fact about the Canaries.
