The Canaries make a start to their competitive season on Saturday when they play Everton at Carrow Road.

Martin has been happy with pre-season preparations and he expects manager Chris Hughton will get the best of the team again this term.

"You never know what to expect at the start of the season, but I am confident," Martin said.

"We have had a good pre-season and have a good squad, the best since I have been at the club and we will go into it with plenty of positivity."

Martin was one of three Norwich players who represented Scotland in Wednesday's 3-2 defeat by England at Wembley, with Steven Whittaker and Robert Snodgrass also in action.

Although the result went against Scotland, Martin admits he enjoyed the occasion.

He added: "It is disappointing (to lose), but it was an amazing game and an amazing experience, with a lot of positives to take."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
