Portsmouth - revenge mission?

Recommended Posts

On the last day we were last in the premiership we would''ve stayed up had a much better Portsmouth side not rolled over and died v west brom. There was a sense amongst some norwich fans that they didn''t even try that day and almost let tIe baggies win.

Is it ironic at all that we could win promotion against the same team who in effect sent us down all those years ago? (similar to the Charlton ''situation'' last year)

They didn''t send us down, losing 6-0 at Fulham did that. Even if they had beaten WBA we''d have gone down, we''d have still finished behind Palace and WBA (GD if I remember rightly).

We were in 17th 1 point clear of the relegation zone going into the last game.

We finished 19th. WBA and Crystal Palace Overhauled us.

Even if WBA had of lost, Crystal Palace would have stayed up on goal difference.

Remember the game far too well =(

OK...maybe not the ''main'' reason but certainly a contributing factor?

Wes signed for Norwich was it 3 years ago? How on earth could it be his fault?

It was mean''t to be sarcastic, because of the couple of posters seemingly thinking if we fail to go up this season the main reason is Wes missing a penalty.... Obviously it failed :(

The failure to sign Ashton sooner, not managing to win a single away game all season, throwing away a 2 goal lead against Man City and twice contriving to draw against Palace when we were by the far the better side, sent us down.  The 6-0 disgrace at Fulham was merely the icing on the cake so to speak
