I don’t know if I class as a big fan of Norwich; I am, but more of the city than the City. Knowing how important the latter is to the former, I always want the best for them, and that’s never more pointed than in the Old Farm game.
So what happened? It wouldn’t be entirely inaccurate to say that Norwich controlled the game from start to finish. While not always looking particularly threatening themselves, they kept Ipswich at arms’ length throughout and rarely was John Ruddy troubled.
This didn’t make for much of a spectacle, particularly after Lewis Grabban had headed them in front, and it was fairly defensive stuff from then on, with the Canaries looking dangerous-ish on the break while never quite committing enough men forward to ensure a second goal.
In the end, they stopped even doing that and just aimed for the corners.
Entertainment value; 3.5/10
