Reasons to be cheerful...

The current transfer issues have really dampened the fact we are currently undefeated in four games and having recently held money bags Chelsea to a cup draw.

I spent the best £3 so far this season watching a cracking, all action cup tie with the Under 18's turning over an impressive Derby County outfit 4-2. It's such a shame only 750 Canary fans turned up under the floodlights to witness a game that had everything with the effort being justified by numerous City youngsters who pulled up with cramp having given everything for the Canary shirt.

1-0 down after a very shaky start, a quick equaliser and then we were under massive pressure to go down 2-1 at half-time. City were always moving the ball round and used the entire Carrow Road pitch to stretch the Derby boys, which ultimately I believe gave the Canaries credit for the much deserved win.

It went 2-2 with a City penalty having had an earlier appeal harshly turned down. Derby had their captain stretchered off with a worrying neck injury and with seconds to go they won a dodgy penalty which was fantasticly saved low by the City keeper.

Mid second half, the experienced Glen Middleton came on from the bench to twist, turn and run at a tiring County defence and in extra time, City sealed the tie with two great finishes.

This was a true blood and guts performance by the young Canaries, let's hope more fans turn up for the F.A Cup fifth round tie against either Palace or Newcastle.
