    Comebacks, Nelson's goodbye and the Trotters

    Norwich City appear to have developed a patten this season and a hair biting but highly enjoyable trait.

    They make a slow start and with quite a conservative approach in the first half of games this season. The opposition tends to chase the ball with City being a possession based side, the result...

    Wet Tuesdays, Paul Warne and Argentinian playmakers

    Thankfully not too many City fans were massively frustrated about Tuesday's result, of course there is growing expectation but also a sense of realism and appreciation of the run Norwich have been on. Let's not forget, Hull are fighting for survival and on paper had many talented and experienced pla...

    November 1958 and the visit of Ilford

    In early November 1958, there was only one topic of conversation: the hula hoop craze. This had swept through the Unites States, flown the Atlantic and even reached Norwich, a semi-forgotten outpost ‘somewhere north of London’. A gallery of photographs in the Eastern Evening News highlighted the...

    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...
