All the stats on Norwich City’s opening games of the season

All the stats on Norwich City’s opening games of the season

 

The announcement of a new season’s fixtures is one of those events that has a lot of build-up but which, after the initial excitement, quickly boils down to the nitty gritty of long trips to all points of the compass on a wet Tuesday night in deep mid-winter.

Away supporters are admired by us all, because of their dedication to the cause through thick and thin. And whole last season was more of the thing for Norwich fans, it’s only fair to see they’ve had more thrills and spills than most to keep them on the edge of their seats in recent seasons – that yo-yo tag is envied by many who regularly end up with that mid-table feeling.

Every season starts with good intentions and a healthy dose of optimism – although by the time the first game is over, reality has often hit home. City fans haven’t had too much to smile about after the first 90 minutes of a season.

So what is City’s first-day form like?
