The Norwich City juggernaut keeps on rolling”

That was a soundbite that I heard on BBC Sport after watching the Canaries score four goals for the third match in a row. I managed to find a not so dodgy stream and watched the game courtesy of Swans TV.

Quite how we’ve got to this point after such a poor start up until the first international break is a mystery to me but since then, the rise up the table and the football being played has been sensational.

After this latest international break, City have come back to League football like they haven’t missed a beat. Before the start of play, I would’ve been happy with a point at the Liberty Stadium but after we scored the first goal, courtesy of Mike van der Hoorn’s outstretched leg, the Canaries never looked in danger of returning to Norfolk with anything less then the full three points.

Another terrific performance from Emi Buendia, Marco Stiepermann’s second goal for the club (the first also came in Wales at Cardiff) and the obligatory Teemu Pukki goal, sealed the win and kept Norwich clear at the top of the table and long may that continue.
