'Shambolic', 'embarrassing', 'diabolical', 'amateur' and 'pathetic'. just a few of the words used by angry supporters to describe Norwich City's 3-0 capitulation at Huddersfield.

Any lingering hopes that Norwich City might yet scrape into the top six come the end of the season, will surely have been snuffed out after yet another abject away performance.

The promotion-chasing Terriers tore into the Canaries with three goals in the space of just seven-and-a-half second-half minutes for a victory which almost certainly ends a wretched season.

Supporters on Twitter were scathing in their criticism of the team, after the latest defeat in a season which started with so much promise, but which has gone from bad to worse.

Conor Southwell said: 'The players have lost the fight, the bottle and the heart. Now it's time for those players to walk away. They owe this club nothing.'

Sam Langan tweeted: 'It's difficult to comprehend how fragile this squad is. Mistakes, hesitation, lack of quality. From comfort to disarray in seven mins.'

'An absolute pantomime, from top to bottom, an amateur pantomime', was Robert Forder's verdict. while Sean Fitzgerald summed it up with a succinct '#NCFC pathetic.'
