Ipswich Town have enjoyed a superb start to the season, with Paul Lambert’s side unbeaten in ten games and sitting at the top of League One.
Whilst it has been a real team effort, summer signing James Norwood has made a big impact with five goals and he has become an instant hit with the fans due to his work-rate and ability in front of goal.
As well as that, his interactions on social media have been eye-catching, with his WWE style GIF celebrations attracting millions of views on Twitter and even meant he had an exchange with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
That came after the club sent out a tweet of the 29-year-old striker celebrating with the wrestler’s finishing move when he notched against Bolton back in August.
And, it’s a celebration that appears to be catching on, with Chicago Bears Lineman Roy Robertson-Harris imitating the People’s Elbow as Norwood had done.
So, the ex-Tranmere man decided to call the American Footballer out on that with a cheeky message on Twitter yesterday, showing his celebration and accompanying it with; ‘Roy, stop copying me’.

The power of social media has been clear to see with Ipswich this season, as the Tractor Boys have been going viral with Norwood’s celebrations.
It’s a good laugh from the striker who obviously doesn’t take himself too seriously and he comes across well on Twitter.
This is the latest example of that but he will just be concentrating on scoring his next goal after going four league games without a strike and the fans will then wonder what the latest celebration will be.
