I celebrated that 3rd goal for Villa like it was us, scared the hell out of the poor dog.

Blades lost their sharpness, well & truly blunted :lol:

I wonder how many Villa fans witnessed the fightback

The championship is a crazy league.

3-0 up with 82 mins on the clock only to draw 3-3, wonder what this will have done for the Blades confidence, it must have felt like a defeat.

Doubtful, that's just the way of the Championship this season, attacks better than defences in a lot of cases. They'll probably shrug it off and win their next game

Stoke v West Brom look at the empty seats! Just proves Leeds are the biggest team in the league and when we are in town it’s a sellout

Hernandez scores for Norwich after two minutes in the East Anglia derby

Another goal from fortuitous circumstances. Everything seems to drop right for them! Definite pen shout for a handball turned down for Ipswich just after the goal.

Norwich do look really good at times, especially Hernandez. Think we're lacking that pace/directness on the wing.

It would seem so !

The canaries must be due a bad run of form or a couple of injuries to their main players surely

There's usually one team in a season that has bucket loads of luck at the right time..Reading in McDermotts promotion year springs to mind...Norwich will probably cake walk it from here

Norwich only play 3 from the current top 10 the rest of the season. Think we'll do well to finish above them or WBA tbh.

2-0

Pukki scores again

What a signing he has been for the canaries

19 goals in 27 appearances

Now he is a prolific striker, to think Norwich got him on a free transfer

Just goes to show you players are out there for next to nothing if you look in the right direction

Same old story and with the exception of us the difference between the teams at the top and the bottom is that those at the top take their chances when they come. Even game and Ipswich have only themselves to blame. If we could take our chances we'd have sewn this title up.

Dont understand how we didnt get Buendia.

I thought the whole point of that stupid link was to be able to potentially get some bargains.

Norwich have a striker who is clinical and plenty of pace, two things we haven't this season. And they are very fortunate, everything seems to go there way.

Still annoyed about the bloody transfer window,all eggs in one basket ffs.

For me the next 7 matches are the crucial ones. If we can come away with 4-5 wins AND not lose to WBA & SU promotion is there to lose. The last 6 games are all winnable without a doubt so the points haul should see them through and bloody unlucky if it doesn't.

Yesterday was the most profligate I've seen us and that was down to Bamford's rustiness. All Norwich's goals today came from clean chances with very little defensive interference...We'd probably have put away two of them

Norwich were playing at home against the bottom team with the leakiest defence in the championship

Where as we were away playing a top six team full of giants with eight defenders & the meanest defence in the league.

We're still not clinical enough in front of goal

I fear Norwich will walk this league now & we are playing for 2nd place
