Norwich Dominate EFL Awards Night (With Added Music)

In what will come as very little surprise to Norwich City fans, the Canaries dominated last night’s EFL Awards ceremony.

The outright winner of Championship player of the season was Emi Buendia, coming just a few hours after he was named the club’s winner of the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy for 2020/21. In case you’re not a Norwich fan reading this, that award is voted for by the fans for their player of the season.

The other big news of the night was that Daniel Farke finally won the Manager of the Season award, having missed out in 2018/19 to Chris Wilder, who managed his Sheffield United side to second place that year. It’s something that has always rankled with Farke a little, I’d say, just the odd comment he makes when asked about it.

Anyway, justice was done last night.

In terms of the team of the season, Grant Hanley, Max Aarons and Teemu Pukki were all named in it, alongside Emi Buendia, of course, bringing the total number of Canaries in the team to four, which is one more than the last time they were in the Championship. Only Bournemouth managed more than one player but let’s be honest, Begovic better than Tim Krul?! Ridiculous, I can only assume that’s because the Cherries’ keeper has had to face a lot more shots than Tim but we all know who the best keeper in the league is really.

Before I go, I’ll leave you with a wonderful rendition from my old mate, Chris Cooper of the Emi Buendia song. Enjoy!

ON THE BALL CITY!!!
