On the cusp of the unthinkable
For the last three years Norwich City have been basking in the limelight of the Premier Division, while our arch-rivals Ipswich Town languished in the neglected backwaters of the second division (called the 'Championship'). Of course, we reveled in this situation. Moreover, as last year it looked as if Ipswich would even be relegated from the Championship to the third division, City fans, polled as to whether they would like this to happen, nearly unanimously voted 'yes', even though this may have condemned us to several years without derby games against them.
But, as things are right now, Ipswich are just one point from the play-offs for a place in the Premier League, while we look like we'll have to beat at least one of the elite clubs, Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal, to stay up. So there's a significant chance that the unthinkable will happen - THEY WILL GO UP AS WE GO DOWN.
