Norwich City's infrastructure continues to impress new boss Glenn Roeder.
Roeder has been in the job for a week, but believes City have Premier League written all over them - even if the Championship table doesn't reflect that.
“You take it from the stadium to here (Colney), the set-up is, well, dare I say, it's a Premiership set-up,” he said.

“Whichever way I turn all I keep turning into it is an organisation that is well organised and run. I would know for a fact there are Premiership clubs that are not run like this, and that is everything.
“The staff are young, they are all young enthusiastic people and really qualified.”

City use the ProZone performance analysis system, which provides Roeder and his coaching team with up-to-the-minute stats on each player.
“The IT lad Liam gave me a few examples of what we can achieve with ProZone which I knew, but the quality blew me away,” said Roeder, it was so good.
“We can do 10 minutes on the opposition, we can do two hours on the opposition, depending how much depth we want to go into it.
“You can ask me whatever stat you want to know about how far we run, how far they run. I mean, too much for the players, players can't handle that. It's too much for them, but for us as coaches there isn't anything we don't know: how many sprints they did in a game, how much walking they did, everything. There is no hiding place any more, because if they disagree we can say, 'come in here, we'll show you, you spent 85 minutes walking'.”
