The greatest Club in the world!

Advantages: Character, youth system, delia smith
Disadvantages: misguided board, small fan base, finance
In these days of super rich clubs such as Chelsea, Man U along with the giants of european football. The days of the smaller clubs, especially after the ITV digital crisis seemed to be all but over.
As a noriwch fan i look towards a future that seems to lack any promise of the glory of the past. When the premiership was founded Norwich city was a force in the top class of english football, the highlight a 3rd place finish in the 1992/3 season. the subsequent european trip resulted in norwich city being the first english team ever to beat bayern munich in munich.
however the sale of top class players, such as chris sutton, preceded a slide into relegation and a debt of £6-7 million.
- on the plus side we became one of the first clubs to have a 'celebrity' director in delia smith.
more recently we have been promoted in the 2004/05 season following a few near misses. a late season heroric display, which involved beating Man U and newcastle took the relegation battle to the last day - giving the chelsea dominated premiership something to talk about. Much of this was due to our january signing Dean Ashton for £3million.
A defeat consigned us to relegation in which during a mis-firing first half of the season lost us star striker dean ashton to west ham for a club record £7.25 million. a signing of prolific striker robert earnshaw leave Canary fans with a positive outlook for next season.
one thing i will critisise is our use of our talented youth system, we get the good young players and then worthington doesnt play them.
Summary: Soon we will rule the world
