Canaries on life support

Norwich City 1 - 7 Colchester Utd

I absolutely love the start of the season when it throws up results like this. All that pre-season optimism going out the window quicker than you can say, 'Wes Hoolahan: crazy name, crazy mad bastard for signing for Norwich'.

Poor bastards. Nobody saw that coming, and if I was a Norwich fan I would be dreading what could be a very drawn out season. Ian Gibson got out not a moment too soon. (There's already rumours doing the rounds that Bryn Gunn has contacted the Daily Telegraph to say that he's admitting to submitting false expenses claims. He's been claiming a salary for managing Norwich.)

Some of us are old enough to remember the ghost of opening seasons past. If only Norwich still had the goalkeeper that they had that glorious day.

As an Ipswich Town fans whose birthday was yesterday, I can only thank Col U for the unexpected present :D
