    ‘a Norwich City team that was playing its first match outside of the top division in almost fifty years.’

    That’s odd, I thought they spent the late 90s and most of the 00s outside the top flight.

    ‘It was a result that sent tremors through both clubs. Bryan Gunn was sacked as the Norwich City manager’

    The unusual thing was, they decided to keep him on to oversee a 4-0 win over Yeovil in the League Cup before sacking him. Still, it’s turned out to be a very good move for Norwich. It seems as though there are only 3 teams able to compete for the 2 automatic places this season. Shame for me as a Huddersfield supporter that the best we can hope for is the Play-Offs…

    Tim, that was a typo on my part – I have up dated it. Thanks for pointing it out to me!

    Is 1-7 to 5-0 the biggest turnaround in Football League history?

    Probably not, Martin, there were some mad scores back in the 50s and 60s.
