If there was any team whose season so far was the hardest to define, it would be Norwich City.
Speaking as a fan, the mixture of emotions I've experienced from the opening disaster at Fulham to their ten game unbeaten run to their crushing defeat recently at Liverpool has been astonishing. From anticipation to dread, to pride and embarrassment – they have all been there.
Thomas Vermaelen has played just once for Arsenal since the devastating derby defeat at Tottenham, and that was only because Per Mertesacker was suspended for the Norwich game. At least the Belgian international has not fallen so far in Arsene Wenger's estimation that Sebastien `the squid` Squillachi was preferred to him, but there is a growing belief in the football media that Vermaelen could be sold during this summer's transfer window.
Jack Wilshere made his latest comeback game against Norwich this weekend, and he admits that he wasn't quite up to his usual best form but he is glad to have got the 90 minutes under his belt. Arsenal made the fans suffer but finally nailed the points in final five minutes and Jack wants a repeat performance in tonights game against Everton.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger's ongoing war with his coat saw another vicious battle at the weekend. In the opening stages of Saturday's home win over Norwich, the Frenchman was captured by TV cameras once again engaged in hand-to-hand combat with his knee-length puffa jacket. This time it was the zip that was causing Wenger problems.
Arsene Wenger has been giving some conflicting reports on Jack Wilshere's welfare. The Arsenal boss has admitted that he 'rushed' the England international back into first-team action for Saturday's victory over Norwich. The midfielder played for 59 minutes of the 3-1 win. Wenger said: "I rushed Jack back a bit.
Until his substitute appearance against Norwich, Wenger has hardly used Podolski at all in past 2 months or so. That has fueled rumours that Podolski could be on his way out with clubs like Juventus and Galatasaray as possible destinations.
Probably to put to bed those rumours, and obviously with Arsenal in dire need of a goal against Norwich, Wenger brought on Podolski, who responded in kind by hitting the post and scoring a long range effort.

Hello chums. A thousand apologies for keeping this blog in such a long state of abeyance; I blame this on a debilitating mixture of interviews, university applications, the death of football blogging as Twitter rises like a 140-character whale from the blue depths, and my college internet servers blocking this website for being too awesome or something.
After Lukas Podolski was left on the Arsenal bench after scoring against Bayern Munich there have been many rumours saying that there was some sort of rift with Arsene Wenger. Some people were saying that Podolski was injured but that was scuppered when he played 70 minutes for Germany a few weeks ago.
We are Arsenal and there's no point in doing things the easy way. We provide all the hallmarks of a great movie despair and fear turned into jubilation when the odds are overcome. Well, maybe not to that cinematic level but somewhere along the lines because that was what happened yesterday against Norwich.
The Gunners once again made the fans suffer at the Emirates yesterday as they were still 1-0 down to lowly Norwich with just 7 minutes to go. But a hotly disputed penalty gave Arsenal their big chance to level the match and go on to win the game.
Wenger didn't reveal how worried he was but instead praised the team for their "spirit and nerve".
The ten Premier League teams in action on Saturday definitely saved their best for last as nine of the day's 10 goals were scored in the second half.
Four of those second half goals came from one match, a 3-1 Arsenal win over Norwich City. As a 55th-minute header from Norwich's Michael Turner began to put hopes of an Arsenal move to third place in jeopardy, the host Gunners equalized in the 85th minute off of a controversial penalty.
Arsenal v Norwich Highlights Arsenal had to come from behind to secure three points on Saturday afternoon at the Emirates, but goals from Mikel Arteta, Olivier Giroud, and Lukas Podolski ensured that Michael Turner's opener was cancelled out.
Arsenal started brightly but were unable to convert any of their play into goals early on.

Arsene Wenger made a couple of forced changes to last weeks side. Per Mertesacker was banned so the captain Thomas Vermaelen was given a chance to redeem himself, and young Jack Wilshere was on from the start, despite a long break from the first time.
The first half was mostly uneventful with neither side seeming to be willing to take control, with Wilshere looking to be short of a pace or two, and there was a little late flurry of corners for Arsenal just before the whistle.
Although Norwich are currently in danger of being sucked into the relegation battle, they have caused Arsenal problems in their last two encounters. The Canaries beat Arsenal 1-0 earlier this season, and on their last visit to the Emirates they shocked the home fans by fighting for a 3-3 draw.
So Wenger knows that this game won't be as easy as it looks.
Words I Never thought I Would Say- Drop Walcott for Gervinho!! by Dan S.
The last time I went to the Emirates was in February to see Arsenal get knocked out of the FA Cup by Blackburn Rovers. My lasting image was of Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere being the only two to stay on the pitch and thank the fans while the rest of their teammates hurried down the tunnel with their heads down.
The objective for today is simple. Win our home match and pick up our 5th consecutive wins in all competitions. 9 spots separates us from our opponent for today, in Norwich. However, that doesn't make the task any easier and one look at the Premier League table will explain why that is so.
Being out of the cups certainly seems to suit this Arsenal side. Finally showing the sort of form that deserted us at the start of the season, even our Ivorian Messi Gervinho is finally getting back in on the action. Yet when you take a step back, it's all rather frustrating. The defensive stability which looks set to bookmark our season was not there at a time which could have defined our season, and players who spent time in and out of the side playing poorly seem to have found a fighting spirit and determination that could ultimately have helped end the anxious wait for silverware.
This weekends game against Norwich is Arsenal's big chance to finally leapfrog Tottenham and Chelsea into Third Place in the Premier League, and Arsene Wenger will be using all his psychology to galvanise the players to give it their best shot.
Wenger knows that Arsenal have not lost one of the 18 games they have scored in first this season, winning 16 of them, and another quick staert against Norwich will give them the impetus to go on and take the points.
Per Mertesacker may have done his captain at Arsenal a huge favour on Saturday. The big German centre back suffered a rush of blood to the head against West Brom, giving away a penalty and earning himself a red card into the bargain. That meant that Vermaelen was brought on for the last 20 minutes, and he will also start the next game against Norwich City because Mertesacker will be suspended.
It is looking like a perfect day for Arsenal in the fight for a Champions League qualifying position. Chelsea are losing at halftime to Sunderland, but we will have to wait and see whether Paolo Di Canio's new club can hold on. Even a draw would be a fantastic result for the Gunners, as we are one point above them in the table as it stands.
Arsene Wenger's assistant at Arsenal, Steve Bould, has given Arsenal fans some much needed good news on the injury situation at the club. Following the devastating blow to the French midfielder Abou Diaby last week, it is a welcome change to hear of some injured players returning sooner than first thought.
1. Arsenal's daredevil game of sluggish defenders, pacy opponents and a very high line might have been a mistake. 2. Gareth Bale's in such good goalscoring form that he's even willing to help Arsenal find the net. 3. The chairmen of the rest of the Premier League's bottom six clubs are hastily arranged for their [.
I think we can all agree that Shinji Kagawa has not had the easiest start to his Utd career. A subdued start, just two goals, then a tough-to-take persistent injury. Certainly not the dangerous midfield man that was scoring goals for fun over in Dortmund. Well yesterday afternoon, out of nowhere, the man from Japan found whatever was missing and hit the ground running from the whistle.

It's a funny ol' game, isn't it? When you're chasing a title race, you're desperate for the next game to come and are eagerly anticipating a defeat for one of your rivals. When you're leading a title race, you're desperate for the season to be over, for the games to be played, and for you to be on top when it's all done.
Manchester United fans collectively held their breath (and Manchester City fans wondered if they were destined to retain the Premier League title after all) when Robin Van Persie picked up a bizarre injury during Saturday's win over QPR. In straining to cross the ball in the build-up to United's opening goal, an off-balance Van Persie [.
Football is like life in that fortune is a fragile mistress. There is a delicate poise between triumph and tragedy at all times. Sequences of events can occur that are beyond our control. There is no mystical, benevolent force powering them. We control and manipulate our own destinies for the most part, but the universe is blind and behaves with complete ambivalence towards our existence.
1. Ahead of kick-off against Norwich there was the promise of extending our lead to 15 points clear at the top if we won. However, with Real Madrid to play on Tuesday, you had to wonder what sort of team Sir Alex Ferguson would go with. It was great to hear what an experienced side had been picked when the team news was announced.
United play host to Norwich and look worthy odds-on shots at 1.33 with bet365 to make it five league wins in a row. The visitors have won two of their last four league games against the Red Devil but they have both come at Carrow Road and they haven't won at old Trafford since August [...]
