The 2004–05 season was the 103rd season in the history of Norwich City. It was the club's first season in the Premier League for nine years, following promotion from the First Division in 2003–04.[1] However, they were immediately relegated back to the second tier, notably without having won a competitive match away from home during the whole season.[2] Despite being in pole position to stay up going into the final match of the season against Fulham, a 6–0 defeat at Craven Cottage sealed their fate.[3] This article shows statistics and lists all matches played by the club during the season.
