The biggest question over Wes Hoolahan used to be – can he play wide left? Then it became, is Wes a luxury?

I suspect that many of us had to pinch ourselves when the final whistle blew at Deepdale after such a lacklustre showing against Fulham – but nevertheless it was good to see City record an away win, even if they suffered the customary wobble after Preston pulled a goal back, predictably enough from a free header at a set-piece.

Baseball had it all. It had Babe Ruth, it had one of sport’s greatest quotes (say it ain’t so, Joe). It had notoriety, glamour, history.

It started with a picture – or rather a tweet. A beaming Sebastien Bassong holding the Barry Butler Trophy, alongside words to suggest the whole scenario was an aberration.

In his very first interview after being appointed Norwich City sporting director, Stuart Webber was asked what he thought was the main reason for the club’s struggles and failings over the last couple of seasons.

Anyone else think it seems like the end of term at school down at Carrow Road at the moment?

In the last six days we’ve seen the best and worst of Norwich City. An apparently irresistible force against Reading somehow transmuted into a side devoid of inspiration and riddled with errors against 10-man Fulham as the Carrow Road crowd got a taste of the sort of performance that has been all too familiar to City’s travelling fans.

You know that phrase that begins “if I had a pound for every time I ...”?

I was recently present for a fascinating talk by Norfolk’s voluntary and charity sector by Jon Clemo, chief executive of Community Action Norfolk, a trade body for the voluntary sector.

If ever there was a week to sum up Norwich City’s season it has to be the last seven days!

Parking space: Tick. List of players (pro and others): tick. Norfolk road map: tick. Little black book: tick.

I suspect that I’m not alone in experiencing a feeling of numbness on matchdays at the moment.

Perhaps the toughest thing about Wednesday’s Huddersfield humiliation was that there are still six games of the season to go.

Two Premier League managers have once again found themselves in hot water after comments they made during or after their press conferences after their team’s performances last weekend.

It was just over a week ago that I wrote my Norwich City column on the players I would keep at Carrow Road and those I would get rid of if I was manager.

Norwich City

In flux, embarrassed – and boy did Norwich City look it as they received their latest away day Championship humiliation.

Just a few years ago the signs were looking somewhat ominous for Norfolk’s biggest street party.

There were a few moments in the second half at Villa Park on Saturday during which it felt like even Mother Nature was satirising Norwich City’s season.

United Kingdom

Never, not in a million years, would I allow some bloke to stick a needle in my skin and leave a mark that will stay with me to the end of my days.

It’s been a funny old week for Norwich City fans, with no club football to distract us from the apparently interminable saga of Stuart Webber’s move from Huddersfield and little to get excited about on the international front as England’s relentlessly lateral passing made hard work of breaking down an almost totally passive Lithuania.

United Kingdom

For a moment I had to double check April 1 had not arrived early.

First and foremost I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Seamus Coleman a full and speedy recovery.

Regardless what happens now or who it proves to be, Norwich City’s new head coach will be their headline appointment.

United Kingdom

I bet I wasn’t the only City fan who spent the international break on Saturday lapping up the sun and catching up on spring garden jobs.

Norwich

I remember a time when I’d watch every minute of every England game without fail.

United Kingdom

With Norwich City spending the international break in limbo, and no that isn’t an exotic location for a warm weather training camp, it feels like it’s all been said about how much sport a sporting director might be directing and whether a head coach is the right way ahead for the Canaries.

Lynn Town

I do it every time: whenever England play I get all excited about 11 blokes who are about to turn a footballing corner. And then they go and let me down.

United Kingdom

If the atmosphere at the start of the Blackburn game had been decidedly low key, last week’s was positively funereal and was hardly lifted by a game that generated very little in the way of highlights.

I said a couple of weeks ago after two very poor performances and results away at Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol City that the play-off position was now beyond Norwich City.
