A look back at the Canaries last 10 opening results in the top flight

A look back at the Canaries last 10 opening results in the top flight

The last ten opening August fixtures played by Norwich City in the top tier of English football produced two wins, four draws and four defeats.

The most famous game is the second half destruction of the League Champions Arsenal. Having walked down the tunnel at half time two down, Mark Robins came off the bench to help his new teammates reply with four unanswered strikes in the next forty-five minutes to turn the game on its head. Will more history be made on Friday night at Anfield

The stats below give you to chance to recall players of old in the lineups and appreciate how attendances at the Carra and opposition grounds have moved on.
