Handball Or Not - We Still Had The Last Laugh

Not only did we have the last laugh in the first half of a highly charged and very entertaining match at Carrow Road against fellow strugglers Newcastle, when, having held onto the ball in the stand for 30-60 seconds in an attempt to be funny and run the time down the Newcastle Fans saw us promptly score with the pretty much the lst touch of the half

We then repeated the same stunt at the end of the second half when Martin Olsson banged in a cracker from 16 yards out to seal the 3-2 win in injury time.

Granted at this point City had been licking their wounds and suggesting Newcastle had been lucky to get the penalty that got them back to 2-2 but captain O'Neil who was sporting his 'lucky' headbandage again today confirmed after the match "It was handball although not intentional at all. Nice to score from my cross at the end to make up for it!"

That winner in injury time means it is back to back wins for Norwich having beaten West Brom on their travels in the previous game, a fightback inspired by the sterling performance put in at Carrow Road again Man City in the draw against the big money men in the game before.

With the form City are in at present i'm sure none of their relegation rivals will fancy facing us as they all battle to scrape scrappy points from draws, with games away at Crystal Palace and home to Sunderland still to come.  Wins in these two matches would guarantee City 37 points at the end of the season, and likely confirm their stay in the Premiership next year when the money gets serious
