We just have to accept we always have been, are and always will be well, very Norwich City.
My first memories of NCFC are from the 92/93 season and the following UEFA cup run, but I wasn't old enough to appreciate it.
Since then what achievements have I got to tell my theoretical son about?
Beating Middlesbrough at Wembley? A couple of Promotions and a couple of whimpers back into the Premier League. Finishing tenth in the Premier League.
We've had no cup runs, no special mangers, don't get me wrong I love Hucks and Holt but they're hardly players my son will be wow'd by.
For a club of this size, that have been in the Premier League for the amount have time we have, we have massively under achieved.
From the last 20 years;
Are we any better off now than Leeds United? So we might have been in the Premier League a couple more seasons but realistically we have nothing more to show for the last 20 years than they have and just two years prior to that they were in a Champions League semi-final.
Portsmouth have had some iconic players and won an FA Cup - imagine telling your son that, I was there when we won the FA Cup.
Barnsley had an incredible cup run, beating Liverpool and Chelsea.
Leicester have won the Premier League
Burnley, Hull, Swansea, Wigan, Southampton, Millwall, Stoke, Fulham, Ipswich, Portsmouth, Bolton, Middlesbrough have all competed in Europe since we were.
RvW is the most excited I've ever been about a NCFC signing.
I'm fortunate enough to have done many things in life, however I suspect the No.1 item on top of my bucket list I'll never get to do and that's to travel away to watch Norwich in Europe with my Dad.
Yes next year we will be could be cash rich, will we invest it Fulham/Villa style into player to get back in the Premier League, No.
Should we bounce straight back into Premier League, will we invest heavily to compete, No.
Call me selfish, but Norwich were here along time before me and will be a long time after me but whilst I'm here I'd love to be truly genuinely blown away by us, just once.
We just have to accept our limitations, Yes there'll be some relative highs and lows but most of the time time we'll be well, Norwich City.
