Tricky one this for Norwich. We’ve played three games, lost one to Chelsea (possibly our best performance) and had a couple of close draws. But we have to start winning before momentum starts to wane. Losing would be a worry.
I tend to look at football emotionally, treating the team as a person rather than an aggregation of mind-frazzling variables and it serves me fine. OK, so my method lacks science and is probably upsetting to the cold mind of the statistical, analytical fanatic with his ‘mind grids’, tactics and possible starting elevens. I know my method is hokum and rather Mystic Meg than Alan Hansen, yet I still can’t bear to enter the world of calculation and method. I really can’t be arsed to turn my brain into a chalkboard. Norwich City to me, is a person and he needs this one.
I’m not going to fudge this. This is what will happen. There will be a penalty. A comeback. And a thrilling late winner. This will be a ding-dong with Norwich coming out 2:1 winners.
At home, against a tricky, yet hardly Champions League material Baggies, City will be treating this like a Cup Final. Maybe he’ll come charging out from the whistle. Maybe he’ll bide his time. Either way, there’s going to be blood spilled. This will be a sweaty one.

I don’t have a clue who might or might not play (Declan Rudd should start in goal for City as he’s the only available keeper) for either team, and the formations are similarly immaterial to me. I see two men in a fight, and my hand is raising the bloodied glove of Norwich City after 12 full-blooded rounds. Norwich will be happy.
