BLIND, STUPID AND DESPERATE
 
05/06: Preview: Norwich City
Opposition opinion
by Norwich fan Steve Whitlam

What happened last season?
Quite simply we didnít invest in the right players in the summer. We needed another striker Ė Dean Ashton proved himself once he had joined in January but by then too much ground had been lost. Our cause wasnít helped by the ridiculous amount of injuries that we had last year..

What's going to happen next season?
Depends a little bit on what happens in the transfer market. If Robert Green goes then I have my concerns as to whether Paul Gallacher or Darren Ward are suitable replacements. Damian Francis and Thomas Helveg will be missed but can be replaced. We donít want to lose Ashton, McKenzie or Huckerby. We need to make sure we have depth to the squad especially with the transfer window applying to Championship sides. Overall though, a top six finish is well within our reach Ė where in the top six? Depends on the transfers!
