    Christmas, the cup, injuries and who's up next?

    Up until Christmas, Norwich City had produced nine wins, two draws and only one defeat with the loss being an extremely unfortunate League Cup away defeat to Bournemouth.

    From Boxing Day the return has been only two draws and two defeats, the loss arguably resultant from our first piece of bad l...

    City's No. 1

    Fundamentally, I believe it was a master stroke from the Canaries management to sign the Dutch keeper Tim Krul this season. My principal reason being the opportunity to ensure a balance of experience and youth. Here are my thoughts the positives and negatives of the player.

    On the negative side, K...

    1959... Manchester United awaits?

    The story so far. Sixty years ago, in mid-November, the Canaries beat Ilford 3-1 in the first round of the FA Cup. At the time, it seemed unimportant and an away tie at Swindon in the second round suggested a pre-Christmas exit from the competition. A 1-1 draw forced a reply but. before this took...

    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...

    Player... Canary Call... Manager... Happy Birthday Neil Adams

    Happy Birthday Neil Adams, the Stoke born multi-talented midfielder/winger is 53 today.

    Having kicked off his career at his home town club in 1985, his undoubted talents were spotted by Everton who picked him up the following year. Arsenal and Tottenham were also chasing after his signature at 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.

    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.
