    Be careful what you wish for

    Once upon a time, on a small island off the western coast of Europe, there lived a king whose name was Sirob.

    For many years, he had ruled over the kingdom which he had renamed Thucydia, although few knew the reason why.

    Sirob ruled alone save for his solitary advisor, the Grand Vizier, Domcum.

    Last week’s FA Cup tie was an enjoyable distraction from the rigours of Premier League football. The game seemed to follow a very similar pattern to the previous tie with Preston North End.

    The changed line up in both games produced extremely open games with plenty of chances for both sides plus p...

    Act V, Scene 1

    Enter two clowns with spades etc. “Nice to give us a break from the ol’ grave-diggin’ for a day, innit.” “Yeah...but we’re on BONG duty on Friday night, y’know.” “Oh, yeah...that’ll be a laugh. Shall we ‘ave a practice...

    It's interesting that all season long so many Norwich City players have been rumoured with moves to bigger clubs.

    Rather than having a team of big-time Charlies, Farke has created a solid team that won the Championship and played unselfishly for each other.

    With a low wage bill individually and...

    2019... All’s well that ends well?

    "All’s well that ends well." OK, Willy of Stratford you weren’t wrong and when Act V resolves all the plot lines in a manner that leaves the audience with a sense that justice has been done and - even if multiple corpses strew the stage - the route to a better future has been opened.

    But what if i...

    The Norwich City players left everything on the pitch on Saturday and I believe Spurs can count themselves very fortunate to come away with one point.

    Tottenham players could not relax on the ball, they were continually pressed which led to the lost possession for both the first goal and the disal...

    The predictability of starting well, getting ahead of the game and then running out of steam and/or mentally expecting a rally from the opposition appears to become embedded into the mindset of the players and fans. Unlike Sheffield United when the game and Carrow Road went completely flat, the play...

    Expectations of Norwich City fans, with the minimal exception of mega confident fanatics, were exceeded at the King Power Stadium last weekend.

    The team were well drilled and everyone played their part. Not only was the attacking threat of Leicester reduced to a status of ‘controlled’, but the Can...

    A tale of two halves

    There were smiles at halftime at Carrow Road on Sunday and positivity from all I spoke to. Norwich City had controlled the first 47 minutes, played on the front foot, created chances, produced a superb strike from Alex Tettey and avoided defensive set-pieces whilst safely protecting Krul in goal.

    I...

    James Maddison - England international and key performer at the King Power Stadium

    The career of James Maddison has continued to flourish since leaving Carrow Road for Leicester City.

    Maddison has developed into a key performer at the King Power. His ability to have great vision and thread a pass suits the speedy attacking style of the Foxes. He has an eye for a goal and offers...

    As expected, some Norwich City fans are talking up the probable inevitability of relegation and some questioning the capability of Daniel Farke and his team.

    Tuesday’s woeful performance at Southampton and especially the first half did provoke lots of questions for fans and management alike. The...

    Is it time to discuss the ‘R’ word?

    Things were looking up.

    Our first away win followed by a rousing performance against Arsenal and City were on an unbeaten run. Thoughts went back to a Grant Holt 1-0 victory when City wee in a similar lowly position before going on a 10 game unbeaten run towards mid-table security.
