Norwich are now the team to beat in the Championship, and there is certainly a feel good factor around Carrow Road at the moment as they look on course to return to the top flight this season.
It will be a swift return to the Premier League too, after they were relegated on the final day of the 2015/16 campaign.
The Canaries ran out 4-2 winners over Watford in their final game in the top flight, but were left to rue missed chances earlier in their league campaign as other results didn’t go their way.
Some Norwich supporters remained optimistic in their reaction to the announcement on social media, and you can see how they responded in our latest FLW Rewind…
Don't worry lads, we will win the championship next year

This day will long be forgotten if the Canaries can win promotion back to the top flight this season, and it looks like a real possibility under Daniel Farke.
They look like a team completely reborn at the moment, and after their convincing 3-0 win over local rivals Ipswich, they surely are the team to beat as we edge closer to the end of the season.
The identity of the club has also changed and it remains difficult to see Farke’s side slipping up anytime soon.
If Norwich are to win promotion back to the Premier League this season, then they could be set for a lengthy spell back in the top flight, with their side having enough quality to challenge a number of sides currently in the top division.
But they’ll have to remain focused on the task at hand, and can’t afford to get carried away with the dizzy heights of being sat top of the Championship table.
