FULL TIME: Easy win for Norwich City against a lacklustre Aston Villa side. Grant Holt and Simeon Jackson with the first-half goals.
The Villa fans sing 'You're getting sacked in the morning' to manager Alex McLeish as Norwich keep possession.
Umair is back in touch on Twitter and he says: 'What did I say about our performance-result? No midfield and 2-0 McLeish OUT within 72 hours or our talented youth will be wasted.'
Looks like we're very much seeing out the final few minutes of the game as Villa looks to make their final change.
Alex McLeish's fortuitous survivors have shared the spoils 17 times this season, including in every away outing against teams between seventh and 17th, but not today as things stand.
Norwich have the best cross completion rate in the Premier League this season (25 per cent) and I can see why this afternoon. They play with so much width.
Eric Lichaj claims he is brought down for a penalty but referee Martin Atkinson waves away appeals. Replays show that Norwich defended the situation very well.
Villa are required to reshuffle their team once again and although they started the half well, Norwich have taken control once again.
Rob emails in to say: 'We know we are an average prem team, but all season we've looked like a championship side. Poor management of a poor side to blame. As much as O'Neill left us in the lurch, he got the best out of a poor players using man management skills. Big Eck could manage his own bank account.'
BRILLIANT SAVE! Shay Given comes to Villa's rescue once again as he denies Simeon Jackson's fierce strike from the edge of the area.
Grant Holt whips in a fine cross from the right but Elliott Bennett's header is just wide of the mark.
James Collins does well to get his head on the ball because Grant Holt was waiting to head that into the back of the net.
What can Villa do as we approach the hour mark? Carlos Cuellar looks to deliver from wide while at the other end Simeon Jackson wins his side a corner.
Wesley Hoolahan has been on the ball most of the game today and is the player who has made Norwich tick.
RUDDY AGAIN! Once again, Ruddy is called into action as Stephen Ireland's dipping effort is pushed away.
ANOTHER GOOD SAVE! Heskey is put clear and his rifles his shot towards goal, but once again Ruddy gets his body behind it.
Villa looks to keep a bit of early possession at the start of this half and Barry Bannan is looking to get involved.
Immediately Grant Holt looks for Simeon Jackson with a neat flick, but Given allows the ball to run out for a goal-kick.
The teams are on their way out and although Norwich have not won a game on a Sunday in 15 years, looks like they're on their way today.
Kieran is back in touch and he Tweets: 'Hi Raz, I think that Norwich will get another 2 but Villa will get 1 and that will come from Herd.'
Don't forget, if you'd like to air your views during the second half, email Raz...that's me! at email@example.com or Tweet me: @RazMirza and I'll publish as many as I can.
Norwich are 1/20 to claim victory with @Skybet, who make Aston Villa 33/1 and the draw 10/1. My pre-match prediction of 1-1 has gone out the window, but Norwich to win 4-0 is 8/1 now if you fancy a flutter. Head now to www.skybet.com to place your bets.
HALF TIME: The Canaries have cut Villa to size so far this afternoon. Grant Holt gave them the early lead finishing off Bradley Johnson's left-footed free-kick although replays suggested a possible use of the arm. And then after 21 minutes his striker partner Simeon Jackson added another despite Shay Given's best efforts to deny him.
Now Villa win a corner at the other end and maybe Stephen Warnock can get in a decent delivery this time.
Carlos Cuellar stands in Howson's way for a free-kick just outside the box but the delivery is hacked away.
Villa have been prosaic so far today, especially at the back, which is unusual for such experienced defenders.
The resulting corner from Stephen Warnock is just dreadful and to compound matters Norwich win the throw.
SUPER SAVE! Eric Lichaj brings the ball forward and has a pop from 25 yards with his right-foot, but John Ruddy does brilliantly to turn to ball around the post for a corner.
Greggers Tweets: 'I can't see Villa doing anything today, could be a rout! Holt should be given a chance to play for England!'
GOOD SAVE! Cheers of Olay go around Carrow Road as Elliott Bennett's shot from the edge of the area is well saved by Given once again.
Simeon Jackson is giving Richard Dunne and James Collins the runaround and it's been a yellow tidal wave at Carrow Road so far today.
John Ruddy does well to punch the ball away and although the Canaries break, Simeon Jackson is caught offside.
The Canaries have gone 13 Premier League games without a clean sheet and conceded 14 goals in their last four matches so all is not lost for Villa this afternoon.
Well Joe, I can tell you that Gabby's last goal was the home game against Norwich earlier in the season!
Replays show the Spaniard did catch the ball with his hand and Norwich are unluckly not to have been awarded that decision.
Kieran Tweets: 'Hi Raz. The way Norwich are playing Villa are not even going to get a iff. Great play from Norwich!'
Villa's defending has been awful this afternoon and although Norwich have lost their last two league games at home, it looks like they're on course for three points today and more goals.
Jackson gets his fifth of the season as Carlos Cuellar's poor header falls to the striker whose initial effort is saved by Shay Given, but he makes no mistake from the rebound.
'There's only one Stiliyan Petrov' rings around the ground with warm applause as we approach the 19th minute.
Joe emails me to say: 'Come on villa poor start. Its all Nowich 2-1 to Villa at half time with a double from Gabby.'
Goal number 17 of the season for Holt as the inswinging free-kick from Bradley Johnson is nudged home at the back post by the big striker. Replays show there was a hint of handball by Holt.
YELLOW CARD: Grant Holt is booked for not moving away from a Villa free-kick although James Collins did blast the ball straight at him.
Ryan Bennett sends over another lovely cross from the right, but this time it's slightly overhit and goes out of play for a goal-kick.
Ryan Bennett's cross is deflected away for a corner to Norwich now but the full-back's ball in is headed away at the near post.
The atmosphere is excellent this afternoon as Richard Dunne very nearly makes a mistake at the back, although Simeon Jackson is penalised for handball anyway.
Simon Lappin body checks Villa's Ciaran Clark for an early free-kick and the ball almost reaches Chris Herd at the back post.
Villa fan Chris Tweets: 'Would be nice to see a rare three points today, Can't see Villa doing much at Carrow Road though. I'm going for 2-1 to Norwich.'
It's party time in East Anglia this afternoon as both teams come out of the tunnel and we're minutes away from kick-off. If you'd like to air your views during the match, email Raz...that's me! at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet me: @RazMirza and I'll publish as many as I can.
Norwich are Evens to claim victory with @Skybet, who make Aston Villa 13/5 and the draw 5/2. The Canaries' Grant Holt is favourite to bag the first goal at 9/2 and is 33/1 to bag a hat-trick. Simeon Jackson is 6/1 to score first while Wes Hoolahan is a good outside bet at 10/1. Jonny Howson is 9/2 to score in 90 minutes while Kyle Naughton is 33/1 to score first. Meanwhile, Villa's Gabby Agbonlahor is 7/1 and Emile Heskey is 8/1 to score first on possibly his last game for the club. For both these strikers to score, it's a 14/1 shot. Stephen Ireland is 12/1 and Ciaran Clark, who scored at home to Tottenham last weekend is a 20/1 shot to score first this afternoon. I'm going for a pre-match prediction of 1-1, which is 6/1.

Mexican sombreros everywhere at Carrow Road on this sunny day. The pitch is in excellent condition too. Let's hope for a few goals!
Great comments this afternoon fans! Keep them coming as we near kick-off. Email Raz...that's me! at email@example.com or Tweet me: @RazMirza and I'll publish as many as I can.
Greggers Tweets: 'I think Norwich will win today, will be a great end to the season, and Lambert is going nowhere.' The Lambert to Villa rumours will only increase I'm sure!! Oh and he adds: 'Norwich dont need to spend big they just need to bring in a few experienced players! 3-1 Norwich today.'
And Klint wants McLeish out! He emails me to say: 'Hi Raz. Mcleish has tried his best this season to take us down but lucky for us that wa't the case. He needs to go, he's talking about bringing quality players in but the names I've heard recently are just not good enough. I've heard off a very good source that Lambert is on his way. If he comes in I think we will be a lot better next season.'
Michael has emailed me an essay. Let me keep is short. He says: 'Norwich have invested in young players, and avoided the egos. Many players have visibly improved through the season (Holt, Surman, Bennett, Howson...) so perhaps we will actually improve. I certainly hope so!'
Adam feels Norwich need to sign a couple of defenders this summer. He emails in to say: 'Hi Raz, I'm a canary fan and have been through the ups and downs and the run we're on at the moment is fantastic, no true Norwich fan can complain where we are now. But to improve even further, I don't think a massive budget is required to have a solid mid table position for next year, maybe even top half, but we'll need to focus on defence. We've conceded against every single team in the league, so really need to be solid at the back. I don't blame (John) Ruddy either, he's made some mistakes but all in all he's a fantastic man holding the goal.' And he then Tweeted me to say: 'I forgot my prediction... 3-0 Norwich, hopefully will keep a clean sheet today!'
Meanwhile, Villa, who are safe bar a massive swing in goal difference, have Emile Heskey and Gabby Agbonlahor fit again to lead the attack.
Norwich striker Simeon Jackson starts alongside captain Grant Holt in an unchanged XI for the final game of the season. Long-serving defender Adam Drury has recovered from a groin injury to make the bench as the Canaries looked to sign off in style after last weekend's thrilling 3-3 draw at Arsenal.
NORWICH: Ruddy, Naughton, Martin, Ryan Bennett, Lappin, Elliott Bennett, Johnson, Hoolahan, Howson, Holt, Jackson.
ASTON VILLA: Given, Cuellar, Collins, Dunne, Lichaj, Ireland, Clark, Herd, Warnock, Agbonlahor, Heskey.
Umair Tweets me to say: 'Just don't see anything more than a Villa loss, make shift midfield, lack of influence, regret letting Reo-Coker go, 2-0 Norwich!'
Meanwhile, Kieran - my Norwich insider Tweets me to say: 'It ha't been Villa's season this year Raz. I'm going for a 3-1 home win.'
Dave still disgruntled Villa fan is first to email me this afternoon and he says: 'Hi Raz, can't wait for this disastrous season to end. Hopefully McLeish will go after today's game and Norwich will give us permission to talk to Lambert. If McLeish stays then its only a matter of time before we go down, I predict next season, but if he goes and Lambert comes I predict the start of something good and better than what O'Neill gave us. Thanks for all your coverage this season it's been fantastic.'
So what do you think Villa fans, do you agree with Big Eck's assessment on what has been a disastrous season? Striker Emile Heskey and defender Carlos Cuellar are likely to make their final appearances for Villa after indicating they will be leaving this summer when their contracts expire. Remember, Villa have already signed Brett Holman from AZ Alkmaar on a free. Who would you like to see Villa bring in?

McLeish has struggled to win over the Villa fans after his controversial switch from Birmingham and knows there has to be an improvement in fortunes admitting the club will look to sign more quality players this summer after a season of underachievement. He said: 'It's about getting more quality in the squad and getting a team that can get further up that table and a team that wants to win badly. We need to get a winning mentality. That's what we'll try and change. I am anticipating change this summer. We have to bring in some added quality to the squad. People expect us higher up the table. This is not the Aston Villa team of 1982 (when they won the European Cup) and people have to realise that. We have missed Darren Bent for 19 games now. I would have expected four or five goals in those games at least which would have made things more comfortable for us.'
As for Villa...well, where do I start? McLeish admits the club will look to sign more quality players this summer after a season of underachievement. The West Midlands side only made sure of their Premier League status for another campaign after last weekend's 1-1 home draw with Tottenham - unless Bolton can score 18 goals at Stoke this afternoon of course!
Opposite number Alex McLeish is full of admiration for Lambert who played under him at Motherwell. The Aston Villa boss said: 'Paul has had that squad together for two or three years and they have jumped up the divisions with great ease. He has done a fantastic job. He's got his team playing together and they've got a great understanding from being together for a long time, which helps any team to progress.' Who can disagree with McLeish's comments! What a privilege it's been to watch the Canaries in action this season.
Norwich have been linked with a move for Caen defender Thomas Heurtaux this week Norwich fans. Do you think Lambert needs to spend big this summer, or can he make do with what he's got at the club? Can Delia deliver a recipe which can help Lambert's Canaries soar next season? Email Raz...that's me! at email@example.com or Tweet me: @RazMirza and I'll publish as many as I can.
Norwich will need to bring in some reinforcements during the summer, but Lambert is unlikely to be presented with a bumper transfer kitty. 'It is not rocket science, the team needs help,' he said. 'After the season we will sit down and see what is going to happen.'
It certainly has been a one-way rollercoaster ride under Lambert since he took over in August 2009, guiding the club up from League One to the Premier League in successive seasons. The former Celtic midfielder, though, feels the past nine months have topped it all. 'This has surpassed anything we have done in the three years I have been here, hands down,' he said. 'It has been phenomenal what has happened here again. Nobody expected this to happen. Everybody thought we would go down. The players have been brilliant all season, to go and compete with some of the teams they have done.'
Paul Lambert may have performed a minor miracle in keeping the Norfolk club up on a limited budget. The performances this season from a well-organised side have seen a famous victory at Tottenham and also last weekend's thrilling 3-3 draw away to Arsenal have put them in a comfortable 13th place on 44 points. A win today could potentially move them up to 11th if results go their way - just outside the top ten! Can you believe that City fans?
