Allow me to lead into the match with a series of jokes:
If Villa lose to Norwich, they'll really have killed off the canary in this season's coal mine.
Neither wizards Norwiches can save Villa now. They really need a miracle from God.
Can-nary a fan be asked to care about this team any more?
Assume that Aston Villa get relegated and Norwich stay up. Now assume that they meet in the FA Cup next year. Does that mean we'd be playing Yellows from the other side?
Q: How did the Norwich kit-man Jonathan Carrow help the club get across a treacherous river on their way to Villa Park? A: Carrow rowed.
