Soccer Saturday Paul Merson in Main Discussion - Norwich City Posted 3 hours ago 19 hours ago, Number9 said: TBF he probably had in mind the context of last season. Yeah, but... There are too many people who judge last season on what happened after restart. It's a commonly recognised psychological effect, the months of competing, some decent results, but being not quite good enough, is wiped out by the dire end to our season. 21 points from 29 games is not enough to stay up, but it's not a million miles away. But that is somehow wiped out by the 0 points from 9, and it becomes incontrovertible that we had a terrible season. If your intention is to criticise the club, then I can see you will focus on those nine games because it is convenient. If you are genuinely looking for a balanced view, then you need to look at the bigger picture. Merson is clearly not one of the intellectual giants of the football world, what's your excuse?
