A Tweet by Roy Smiljanic led me to an article about Canaries fans turning on Delia Smith. This reported that, towards the end of Norwich’s loss against Brentford on Friday, some fans were chanting, “We want Delia out.” In his Tweet, Roy said, “Can’t believe Canaries fans turning on Delia Smith someone who has ploughed in a fortune into team & area & is a committed fan. Huge amount of clubs would want owners like Delia.” I agree with Roy on this but apparently commitment and caring isn’t enough; they want success.
I can understand wanting success. I would like it too but I don’t expect too much. From Birmingham City’s present position at the bottom of the table, I would define success this season as avoiding relegation. And I’d like Blues to take a step towards that by beating Norwich today. My spark of belief that was kindled by our goal against QPR was fanned into flame by reports of our performance at Sunderland. So I continue to hope.
