The win at Carrow Road crowned by Gary Porter's late goal in 1996 promised a sunrise that never came. The earlier godawfulonthetellyagain home defeat that season was one of the lowest points of Roeder's reign. Two draws in the play-off season including a shocking miss by Iwan Roberts at the Vic and Rocket Ronnie's last hurrah at Carrow Road.
Norwich hung around inconspicuously in mid-table and hoped nobody would notice. Nobody did. They finished twelfth.
It must seem a long time since City were knocking Bayern Munich out of the UEFA Cup. The last couple of league campaigns have been nothing to write home about, and even if they manage to hang onto Bellamy City are nothing more than a solid enough side. Revelations that City's players' wages were paid out of Delia Smith's own pocket at one point last season do not point towards City hanging on to Bellamy and building towards the play-offs. Bottom half seems more likely.
