Not quite dead yet, but certainly having CPR

I was doing a first aid course the other day and it occurred to me that Norwich City were much like the victims (yes I know they are plastic and not real) I was working on.

Thankfully, because of Barnsley's inability to hold on to a lead, Norwich are still alive, just, but undergoing CPR and, in my opinion, look more likely not to survive.

Consistently crap referees

I think every football fan accepts that referees will not get it right 100% of the time, and once in a while you know they will miss a clear penalty. But for Norwich to be cursed by referees on such consistent basis who simply refuse to give cast iron penalties seems to be turning the whole question of referees competence in to a joke.

Again today two clear penalties and another one which falls under the category of "I've seen them given", were ignored by the ref who seemed in one case to be the only person (along with his assistant) in the ground who missed a blatant handball where even the Watford player's reaction was to look shocked as he listened for the expectant whistle.

As to the game, a well deserved win and an example of how Norwich can play when the press the opposition and don't sit back letting the other team dictate play.
