Overall, we’re better off now

Norwich - a fine cityThe transfer window has now slammed shut and City boss Glenn Roeder has seen a big turnover in his playing staff shipping out nine, adding one permanent and seven new or extended loan players to the Canary squad.

Those are some pretty big numbers but does it mean that the squad stronger now than it was way back at Christmas (which feels like a lifetime ago now)?

In the goalkeeping department we’ve seen no new arrivals but the departures of Paul Gallacher (released) and hot-prospect Joe Lewis to Peterborough United for £400,000 have left the squad two keepers down on this time last month.

There may be a lot of potential sitting in the academy but if just for sheer numbers alone I’d say that the position has been weakened. Any injury to David Marshall or Matthew Gilks could cause some big problems.
