For eleven years (1974-85), I lived and worked in Bury St Edmunds and, in many respects, it was a vintage period: a lovely town in which to raise a young family; an opportunity to build a career in an environment that offered both stability and challenge; and it was only an hour’s drive for home mat...Continue Reading
My first thoughts that spring to mind regarding Bolton Wanderers are firstly Max and Paddy, the TV characters portrayed by Peter Kay and Paddy McGuinness who hail from the area and regularly made BWFC references, the main sketch remembered is when a minibus load of dwarf Bolton fans raided the club...Continue Reading
Two completely different football styles meet up again this Wednesday at Molinaex with the free flowing, direct, fast overlapping Portuguese taking on the processed, structured, passing and possession Germans who mascarade at Norwich City. Who will come out on top this time?
Unlike the large major...Continue Reading
So, it’s here again, the East Anglian derby at Carrow Road (I refuse to call it ‘The old farm’, it’s naff). The 55th Norfolk instalment of which Norwich have won 25, Town 17 and 12 draws so far.
Kick off is at its now customary ridiculous time of noon on a Sunday. Why Suffolk and Norfolk rozzers...Continue Reading
My first recollections of the Rams go back to being a nine year old in 1972 when of course the Rams became Football League Champions under the reigns of the mighty Brian Clough.
Being a fledgling keeper it was great to see Colin Boulton flying about in the mud between the sticks and Kevin Hector...Continue Reading
Gary Doherty was far from Spurs' or indeed Norwich's best player during his four and six years respectively with the both clubs – but he certainly had a claim for being one of the most popular. What must not be forgotten was that Gary was named Norwich City player of the season in 2005-6 in what w...Continue Reading
In many respects I am no different to many other supporters of Norwich City or any other football club although I can lay claim to a five-generation family C.V. which stretches back 110 years: Granddad (first game 1908); Dad (1934); Self (1958); Children (1982); Grandchild (2014).
I wouldn’t argue...Continue Reading
Brentford go into this weekend’s game against Norwich City in confident mood following a well-earned victory at Reading last Saturday, and a sequence of five wins in the last six matches.
I doubt Canaries supporters will need many clues to work out when Brentford’s pre-Christmas run started – the...Continue Reading
Having won four player of the month awards, picking out the creativity and finishing power of James Maddison would be a no brainer.
However the most warming experience as a City fan for me so far this season is seeing a youth player come through the ranks from apparently nowhere to then instantly...Continue Reading
West Bromwich Albion versus Norwich City - FA Cup 5th Round Saturday 13th February 1982
So sad to see the passing of one of football's great players and gentlemen this week. Cyrille Regis broke Canary hearts when he scored what was eventually voted by Match of the Day viewers as goal of the season...Continue Reading
The current transfer issues have really dampened the fact we are currently undefeated in four games and having recently held money bags Chelsea to a cup draw.
I spent the best £3 so far this season watching a cracking, all action cup tie with the Under 18's turning over an impressive Derby County...Continue Reading
Based on the performances of the goal shy Canary footballers this season, I am a little surprised to see that Yanic Wildschut hasn’t claimed a regular shirt this season and now looks to be off to league rivals Cardiff City on loan for the rest of the season.
Looking at his career to date, he has...Continue Reading
