ON THE PITCH
Norwich City continued their impressive start to the 2014-15 Sky Bet Championship campaign by showing character to come from two goals down at half-time against Cardiff City.

The Canaries eventually triumphed 4-2, with Martin Olsson, Wes Hoolahan, Michael Turner and Cameron Jerome all on target.

Such a turnaround was recognised nationally by the League Managers Association, who awarded Neil Adams' side with 'Performance of the Week' for their efforts.

A tendency for strong second half displays was also evident in the following game away to Brentford, where three goals in the final 22 minutes took City to the top of the division.


Another fightback was required against Birmingham City at Carrow Road, with the hosts trailing 2-0 at the interval.

Cameron Jerome maintained his excellent early form for the Club, scoring a brace against his former employers after the break to rescue a point.

Shrewsbury Town ended Norwich's progress in the Capital One Cup in their next outing, before another comeback win in the league away to Blackpool.

The month ended with a 1-0 defeat to Charlton at Carrow Road, as Johnnie Jackson struck late on against the run of play.


OFF THE PITCH
Norwich City were heavily involved on the final day of the summer transfer window, clinching the permanent signings of Ignasi Miquel and Louis Thompson from Arsenal and Swindon Town respectively.

As part of the deal to bring Thompson to Carrow Road, the youngster was immediately loaned back to the Wiltshire outfit for the remainder of the season.

A third addition in the closing stages of the window saw former Celtic central defender Jos Hooiveld join on loan from Southampton.

Meanwhile, Luciano Becchio made a short-term switch to Rotherham United while Andrew Surman signed permanently for Bournemouth.

On 17 September, Neil Adams gave support to former loan player Jonas Gutierrez, who announced he was battling cancer.

The Argentinian would go to make a welcome recovery from the illness, eventually - and fittingly - scoring the goal which helped keep Newcastle United in the Barclays Premier League.

Finally, Alex Tettey became the latest City representative to commit his future to Norfolk, agreeing a fresh two-year deal the day after scoring in a 3-0 win at Brentford.


Finally, Norwich City's newly-introduced fly-on-the-wall documentary City360 aired for the first time in mid-September.

The series would go on to provide the most exclusive insight into the Canaries' Sky Bet Championship season, with the first episode centred on the early weeks of the campaign.
