Chris Hughton: Hoping Norwich can avoid being dragged into a basement battle

Chris Hughton: Hoping Norwich can avoid being dragged into a basement battle

The struggles of those below them in the Premier League standings mean the Canaries are currently eight points clear of the drop zone.

It would not take much, though, for that gap to be closed and for Hughton's men to be dragged into a basement battle.

The Norwich boss is aware of the size of the challenge facing his side - with crucial clashes against Southampton, Sunderland and Wigan Athletic set to define their season.

"It's a big month for us, as it is for a load of teams," Hughton said in the wake of Saturday's 4-0 reversal at title-chasing Manchester United.

"All the games for us are big games and they're tough games.

"Our season certainly won't depend on the result here, as we never thought it would.

"The game here at Old Trafford was never going to define our season. Anything we got from here was going to be a bonus.

"There's only one team that's come here and won this season and that's Spurs, so we knew it would be tough. But certainly the positive for us here was our first-half performance."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
