Great – the season is underway and 3 points in the bag

August 5, 2006

Excellent start to the season after last seasons disappointing trip to Cardiff. I must admit I was nervous about this one – expecting Norwich to be stronger than last season and thought that a hard fought draw might be a possible outcome. Still this win sets us off on the right foot for a long hard season ahead. It is good to see some activity on the transfer front despite the fiasco with Livermore with three more players arriving in the last couple of days. According to the preview on Leeds United Life this win keeps a great run of opening day results going – “Our last opening day defeat was the 5-2 loss, away at Newcastle, on 19 August 1989, the year we won the old Division Two title. Since then, we have won nine and drawn seven and yet nine of those sixteen games were played away. This will be our eighth successive home game on opening day and we are looking for our sixth win in that time.”

    It had to be Norwich – didn’t it!
    Needless to say I have one disappointed bird.
