A comments section on a champ game? BBC must be feeling generous! Remarkable job by Norwich, not sure there's much consolation to be given to Huddersfield except that they won't have to play this fixture next season!

The Championship is brilliant. Far and away more exciting than the premier league. There's still passion. Unlike the overpaid mercenaries that make up the premier league.

A sublime performance. Promotion will hopefully allow Norwich to keep this excellent team together.
Great away place to go to. Wonderful day trip for all ages .Grandest of English cities and very underrated. Character and all.
Football is always a great excuse to go there. Well connected with the rest of the country. True East Anglian gem in the English crown.

It feels good to be a Canaries fan this season after last year. I just hope we can manage to sustain Premier League football for a few seasons and show that it is not only billionaires that can survive up there. We (maybe) have the business model and management to do it currently.

Watford managed 5 seasons before dropping out last year, and will hopefully get a chance to try again next season. Leeds & Wolves have a good chance of establishing themselves, Villa have bought themselves another year thanks to some astute signings, and the likes of Palace and Burnley have also managed it. It's definitely doable, but I don't think you'll do it without a few decent signings.

Great form. Norwich, Watford and Barnsley. These three will replace the Blades, WBA and Newcastle.
Brentford should be playing in the Bootle Cup final against Spurs. Low profile, intimate London affair for bestest team in that (slippery) field.

Barnsley are capable of winning the play-offs (they won't, I think Brentford will), but promotion for them will result in, I would guess, beating Derby's record. They wouldn't finish a game with 11 men & half their goals would be ruled out by VAR.
There are about 16 teams in the Champ who play like them. It's effective, but boy, is it ugly.

Yo-Yo clubs aplenty. It looks as though both Norwich and Watford will be promoted back to the Premier League. This time next season Fulham and WBA will probably in a similar position to bounce back up. Following promotion you've got to survive that first season. Leeds have done that and will establish themselves in the premier league as Wolves have. Can Norwich be do enough to escape the drop?

Norwich went up two seasons ago but that was not expected. That's why they didn't spend crazy money to stay up then, They used the money to secure the club and to invest.

Now they are MUCH stronger than two years ago, much better defensively, work much harder off the ball and they still have plenty of Premier League experience.

They won't be so naive this time.

Yebbut. There is a reason why none of the big clubs have come after him, despite the top class goals that he does score. He needs to be able to produce 80% of his best week in week out, but his average PL performance was well below that.

Agree. There are 5 teams who've been in the top division since at least the 70s (or longer), they along with Man City and Chelsea aren't going to be relegated anytime soon barring some kind of Rangers-esque financial scandal. Anyone else would probably do well to just stay in the league for 10 seasons.

To say Norwich are not good enough is a bit rich when they will become only the fourth team ever to win the Championship, finish bottom of the top tier, and then go on to win the Championship again. Given that Maddison, Godfrey, Lewis have all gone (to the Prem) from Norwich as well as the Murphy brothers and Alex Pritchard, it is a truly remarkable achievement. Cowleys must be feeling pretty smug

Alex Pritchard - one of the biggest wastes of a wage at HTAFC. We've been lumbered with him since January 2018 and he's been either forever injured or just ineffective. Had the chances to move on but won't because his wage demands are too high. Leech of the highest calibre. And yes, it's our chairman's fault for offering him that wage in the first place.

Success in the very top division for so many teams is deemed to be NOT being relegated which is such a sad reflection on 'the beautiful game'. Yet it IS success given that stability - let alone cups & titles - is largely determined by what monies a club has & is prepared to spend. How can clubs such as Norwich compete with clubs such as Manchester City whose owners are, essentially, a country?

The Norwich business model represents a laudible ethos, but the problem is no other team in the PL uses it (like it or not). You won't stay up if you don't invest in a bigger/better squad, & if you can't afford to compete in the market without borrowing/investment then that's tough. Staying in the PL a few years pays. Surely that's the best policy? Parachute payments should be scrapped, not FFP.

If all they do is show up the ridiculousness of the EPL then I'm all for it. The big (I mean rich rather than big) clubs are out for themselves. The quicker they get a European super league up and running the better. We can go back to having a real sport again.

It was a beautiful evenings viewing and the best I have seen Norwich play since the late 80s early 90s.

setting aside the unfortunate very seasonal blasphemy & your incredibly crass comparison of crucifixion to relegation I otherwise have to totally agree.

Its only crass to a person who believes in god/religion.
Those who do not believe, god and religion is nothing more then a very clever way, that a small minority of well to do people can control the majority of normal's, by "putting the fear of god up them", allowing them to rob them blind with taxes and get them to fight their 'holy' wars for them.

Yo-yo club , play the parachute payment system for all its worth. No ambition or big signings when they go up and then straight back down again.

What do you care? I don't think there's many unhappy Norwich fans about at the moment.

Give your head a shake.

Yeah lets buy massively expensive players in the hope that they do well while almost bankrupting the club. Or we could stick the model we have in the knowledge that the club will be a round for many years to come. I think they should bring it in that no club is allowed to be in debt. I do appreciate that would mean most of the EPL would have to sell everyone!

They used the money to upgrade the academy, they show cased players and sold a few. They are now creating more talent in the academy to improve the team and eventually sell on to larger clubs. It’s about survival, if you don’t have a sheikh bank rolling you you have to get creative. They have ambition. Norwich fans are happy, so it really doesn’t matter what other fan think.

That's worse than they lost to Villa earlier this season. Norwich are good but have you no confidence in Liverpool?
