Norwich City are top of the Championship at present and have more cause to celebrate after news emerged before last night’s victory over Hull City.
The Carrow Road faithful were asked to be in their seats early for some breaking news to be shown on the in-stadium screens.
What preceded that request was the announcement that manager Daniel Farke had agreed to a new long-term deal until June 2022.
The club confirmed the extension on their official Twitter page before kick-off with a promotional video to boot.

Farke has worked wonders at the club since his appointment in May 2017.
He was won just under half his games in charge and has taken Norwich from mid-table fodder to being on the brink of a return to the Premier League.
The news was received positively, as you would expect after the job he has done so far.
And there was a tremendous amount of reaction to the news of Farke’s new deal for a further three-and-a-half years.
Here’s how the Norwich fans reacted to the contract news…
Best news ever ! To all the doubters ,as I said when he first came , just give him time ,bet your all glad we did ! MrsB

One reason why all supporters and owners need to give managers time, well deserved.
