  • Norwich City v Cardiff City Preview
    Norwich City v Cardiff City Preview

    It seems appropriate that the penultimate home game of this frustrating campaign should come against Cardiff City, because in many ways, they represent the opposite of Norwich City this season. The successful operation of a traditional system under a strong-willed English manager has treated Cardiff...

    Craig Bellamy vs James Maddison

    With Cardiff heading into the City this weekend, I thought it might be interesting to compare the two stars as both have made significant contributions in Yellow and Green colours. They both also have the connection of both playing for Coventry City and achieving Under 21 caps for their countries.

    Sunderland v Norwich City Preview

    It will take an admirable amount of loyalty for any Norwich City fan to travel to a Tuesday night match at Sunderland with nothing left to play for. But a certain fanatical section of the Canary faithful will be there, casting a yellow glow within the Stadium of Light as they cheer on the Canaries...

    The Villans are up the City

    Norwich City have just had to endure probably our biggest bogie team at Carrow Road in Fulham and now we have to endure arguably our second biggest bogie team in Aston Villa. Whilst City have ebbed and flowed this season with a few unbeaten runs mixed with a run of games not looking like we will n...

    The peculiar pleasures of mid-table mediocrity

    13th...... 11th...... 9th...... 13th. No, this is not an article about our friends down the A140 (more on them later). These are the finishing places of Norwich City in Division Two (aka The Championship) during the second half of the 1960s: the final season of Ron Ashman’s management and three ye...

    A Yellow Army 5,045 miles away

    I do love absorbing the differing football cultures when travelling on holiday and most of them have been witnessed in Eastern Europe. A chance not be be missed occurred for me in February with a trip to energise the all my senses in every footballing way possible, Kerala in southern India.

    What m...

    Who is next in the hot seat down the road?

    So, the pretty much inevitable has happened. Mick McCarthy and Terry Connor are leaving ITFC at the end of the 2017-18 season after five and a half years. 

    Some Town fans will be unhappy at this news, undoubtedly we could have employed a lot worse than them, but the overall feeling is that their t...

  • Have the wheels come off?
    Have the wheels come off?

    I now have serious concerns. Not that we just don't look anything like a team capable of attacking the play-offs next season, worse than that, Norwich City have every chance of finishing lower than our neighbours down the road. An outcome which simply is not acceptable.

    We started this season know...

    Norwich City v Fulham Preview

    Third-placed Fulham head to Norfolk for some Good Friday football 16 league games unbeaten and brimming with confidence, as they mount a push for the top two. It is safe to assume, therefore, that the Canaries will have to be both resilient in defence and clinical in attack to gain anything from the...

  • Can Madders’ past predict his future?
    Can Madders’ past predict his future?

    An English attacker who uses his brain to help him bring unselfish and consistent quality on the pitch, and to keep his confidence in-check. A young footballer who is visibly grateful for any opportunity he is given, sharing mutual respect with coaches and fans alike. A young, English footballer who...

  • What might have been
    What might have been

    I have written before about the highs and lows of being a Norwich City fan, but there was a season just before the Premier League which for me highlights the joy and the pain of following the boys in yellow and green.

    It was season 1991/92, I had been a season ticket holder in the 70’s and 80..

    Where are City?... Oh another international break

    The final dreaded fortnight-long international break is currently with us, and club football action is set to resume again over Easter with Fulham due next at the Carra. But that is not before everyone associated with clubs, that had their players in action, fretting over the possible consequences o...
