Norwich City have won the Championship or the second tier of English football on three different occasions and look extremely likely to finish top yet again.
The Canaries’ most recent display of Championship dominance was in the 2020/21 season in which Norwich finished top of the league with 29 wins, ten draws and only seven losses.
However, history repeated itself when, like the 2018/19 season, Norwich finished rock bottom of the Premier League in 20th.
Despite their shortcomings in the top tier, Norwich are proven heavyweights in the Championship and can never be discounted in the title race.
A big factor in Norwich’s recent dominance in the Championship is Finnish frontman Teemu Pukki.
Since his move from Danish club Brondby in 2018, Pukki has scored 77 goals for The Canaries, most of these coming in the Championship.
In the two Championship seasons he competed in, Pukki scored 29 goals and 26 goals in the 2018/19 and 2020/21 seasons respectively. The Finn’s 29-goal season won him the Golden Boot, whilst his 26-goal effort saw him fall third behind Brentford’s Ivan Toney (33) and Blackburn’s Adam Armstrong (28).
These previous strong showings make Pukki one of the biggest candidates for Championship top scorer this season.
