It’s been another blistering season for this Norwich City side in the Championship as they look to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking once more.
Daniel Farke’s side hold a comfortable 10-point advantage over second placed Watford. The Canaries have been in scintillating form winning eight games on the bounce whilst only conceding three goals.
Teemu Pukki has once again been in blinding goal scoring form notching up 21 for the season so far with 10 games remaining. The Finnish striker has been in red hot form scoring 10 goals in his last eight.
It’s all sun and roses at the moment down at Carrow Road but we’ve come to expect this from Norwich.
They consistently ace the Championship destroying anyone and anything put in their path to the Premier League.
However, when they reach the promised land, they always fall short.

It seems to be somewhat of a running joke now that The Canaries will breeze their way to becoming Championship winners yet completely crumble when faced with the likes of playing Burnley away in the Premier League.
The Yellows have faced two main criticisms when they continue to struggle to stay in the Premier League.
One being that they don’t back their manager enough by bringing in Premier League quality players and the other is that their style of football should be tweaked for the challenges the top league provides.
In their last three appearances in the best league in English football Norwich have been relegated in all of them.
Their last campaign in the 2019-20 season was their worst to date finishing plum bottom having earned just 21 points all season.
It could never be argued that Norwich don’t play exciting football and some people respect that they stick to their morals of how they play the game.
However, when it clearly doesn’t seem to work for you in the Premier League consistently this should be something they learn from.
In the Championship they can bamboozle the opposition with the quality of players they possess all around the park, but the Premier League is a whole new ball park and must be treated as such.
If Norwich and Farke don’t want to change their playing style to remain in the Premier League, then they should take a look at Fulham.
Scott Parker’s side have continued to play a brave passing game since being promoted last season and they are starting to pick up results.
The one big difference between the two sides though is that Fulham aren’t afraid to spend big to avoid relegation.
Norwich have consistently been questioned as to why they fail to bring in suitable quality to help them avoid relegation.
It’s always going to be tough to get the best out of the players who won you the Championship without adding some proven quality amongst the ranks.
It is paramount that this time around Farke is given suitable backing in the summer transfer window so that we can see the absolute best of this Norwich City team.
Surely the penny must have dropped for The Canaries that to stay in the best league in England you have to adapt.
