    Cup and League away encounters plus Ladies football and Ale

    So after a busy week volunteering at Norwich Beer Festival and after witnessing three consecutive league victories for City, I arrive at Norwich Railway Station for the journey to Bournemouth. Despite a complete signal lockdown between Stratford and Liverpool Street earlier in the morning it had bee...

    Will the Lions roar this weekend?

    It's a fantastic time to be a Norwich City fan at present with the "one family" feeling spreading amongst the team and in the stands. City are no longer the team that assists the opposition by helping them end poor runs!

    Eighteen years of hurt were dismissed on Saturday with the second half demol...

    Back to the bread and butter

    Even though City lost 2-1 to Bournemouth in the cup this week, the boys are really disappointed but I am sure positive from the experience having produced impressive stats from the game with more possession, corners and shots, which included hitting the post twice Premiership opposition.

    The Cana...

    Be careful what you wish for...

    At the end of last season and at the start of this campaign there were quite a few Norwich City fans getting on Daniel Farke's back... poor results and negative football being blamed. The mood has changed after eight wins in the last 10 games.

    With old boy, Paul Lambert joining Town, we though...

  • Why demonise Paul Lambert?
    Why demonise Paul Lambert?

    Saturday’s chant from the Barclay End was sad. After a six strange years in a series of managerial roles that - for a variety of reasons – didn’t work out, he has been given the opportunity to revitalise a struggling Championship club. That it happens to be Ipswich Town is surely irrelevant.

    As...

    The Perfect Penalty: An Ex-Keeper’s Perspective

    Another matchday, another victory for Norwich City as their fantastic form continues, and I couldn’t be more delighted. But having witnessed another Norwich striker bungle another penalty at Carrow Road, I feel the time is now right to shine a new light on the seemingly unanswerable question: how...

    Mine is definitely bigger than yours

    Many of the you may well have noticed, read, voted or commented on the recent EFL fans Facebook page as to whether the small town in Suffolk is a 'bigger' club than the one which currently, is a mere 15 points ahead and 18 places higher, described as 'The Fine City' and is the Capital of East Anglia...

    Look back on Villa and forward to Brentford

    There is a very different atmosphere in and around Norwich City at present. There is a real sense of belonging and working as a team both on the field and in the stands.

    When Villa scored the opener, the Barclay immediately set off a resounding chorus of 'One the ball City' whilst all home fans c...

  • Replacing your Canary fix
    Replacing your Canary fix

    I've always been club before country and if given the choice would pick Norwich City winning any major competition over England winning the World Cup.

    So rather than take in the new UEFA Nations League, I headed to Budapest in Hungary for a long weekend to take in the sights, sounds and beers f...

    It's almost October

    So that’s another season over: a really interesting Test series against India and next year the World Cup and the Ashes. What can we do to fill in the time?

    I guess it’s time for attention to switch to the winter game...... oh, they started at the beginning of August, did they? Seems a tad early...

    When will the real passion and teamwork return?

    Plenty of passion, teamwork plus some guts and determination will need to be in evidence to win today against Middlesbrough, the Canaries persistence with passing and structure will not be enough against a team run by Tony Pulis.

    I had the pleasure of meeting a beautiful girl from Whitely Bay many...

    Will City ever play Posh in a league match?

    I was born and brought up within the sound of St Peter Mancroft's bells in the heart of our fine City.

    I am also proud of the fact that I managed to prize my away from Norfolk to explore other worlds, in this case 14 years in North Cambridgeshire and South Lincolnshire. The benefit of being in ex...
