Matches[edit]

Norwich City's second season in the premier league started with a heavy defeat away to Fulham. Damien Duff, Alexander Kačaniklić both scored one, Mladen Petrić scored two and Steve Sidwell scored a penalty. Manager Chris Hughton said that Norwich simply didn't defend enough.[51] Chris Hughton responded by signing defender Sébastien Bassong and defensive midfielder Alexander Tettey before the following game at home to QPR. Bassong and summer loan signing Javier Garrido made their débuts for the club in the match. Simeon Jackson opened the scoring and with Bobby Zamora scoring an equaliser. Djibril Cissé missed a penalty which was awarded following a coming together between Cissé and Bassong. The month ended with Norwich signing goalkeeper Mark Bunn from Blackburn Rovers.
