It was almost a week ago, but time isn’t making it any easier to digest. And it will take some effort between now and the end of the season to ensure Norwich City’s Carrow Road defeat to Brentford on Saturday is not a watershed moment in their bid for a top-flight return.

Norwich have a few players out on loan at the minute and I’m sure one in particular caught everyone’s eye last Friday night when he played for Cambridge against Manchester United in the FA Cup fourth round.
