Norwich City 2007/08: The season in numbers

I love Football365. Inspired by their Season in Numbers feature, I decided to do my own Norwich City-related one:

0 – Weeks spent in the play-off positions.

1 – Goal scored by Chris Brown in a year at Carrow Road.

2 – Red cards picked up by Darel Russell.

3 – Goals scored against Ipswich.

4 – Points picked up by Ipswich against us.

5 – Goals scored by Chris Brown since joining Preston North End.

6 – Times the Carrow Road witnessed a draw. The fifth lowest in the Championship.

7 – Assists by Darren Huckerby in his final season in the yellow and green.

8 – Did you know that was how many points we had before Glenn Roeder took over? We really should make more of that.

9 – Times we had to witness Julien Brellier in a Norwich City starting XI.

10 – Clean sheets kept in the league by David Marshall.

11 – Appearances by David Strihavka – inluding eight from theĀ  bench.

12 – League goals scored by Jamie Cureton to make him top scorer.

13 – League and Cup games before Peter Grant did the decent thing.

14 – Defeats in the league away from home – the joing worst in the Championship with Barnsley, Coventry and Scunthorpe.

15 – Total league wins (10 at Carrow Road, 5 away from home).

17th – Position in the final league table.

19th – Position if the league table was based purely on away results. Ipswich would be 22nd and relegated.

21 – Defeats in the league.

22 – Goals conceded at Carrow Road.

34 – Players used in all competitions.

50 – Shots off target by Jamie Cureton.

51 – Appearances by David Marshall.

52 – Shots on target by Jamie Cureton.

4,590 – Minutes played by David Marshall in his 51 appearances.

25,497 – People attended the QPR game on 26th April – the highest attendance at Carrow Road all season.

36,208 – People attended the Sheffield Wednesday game at Hillsborough a week later – the highest attendance in the Championship all season.

If you have your own to add, please let me know…

About the Author: A Norwich City fan who still loves Grant Holt, just. When I visit Fortress Carrow Road I can usually be found in the Jarrold Stand with a cornish pasty in one hand and a kit-kat in the other.
