Stalin preferred five-year plans but it was unlikely that anyone would have wished to argue with him.
As for the Stuart Webber/Daniel Farke axis, I’m not sure whether any precise time-scale has been set for ‘the project’ (I’m still puzzled about when and why this term entered the football...Continue Reading
On Saturday, Norwich City head to Deepdale for the penultimate away game of the season and a chance to minimise the chances of former manager Alex Neil from taking Preston North End in to the playoffs.
We have been victorious on our previous two league visits to Deepdale in the Championship ho...Continue Reading
So, at last, Arsène Wenger who started with Arsenal back in August 1996 is leaving the club at the end of the season. He was to influence Norwich City fairly quickly having replace Bruce Rioch, who after a brief failure and sacking as assistant at QPR went onto to do an equally poor job at the Car...Continue Reading
It should be an interesting contest on Saturday with Alex Neil still having an outside chance for the play-offs and Daniel Farke continuing to build a brand which will hopefully produce the goods for Norwich City next season.
Both appointments were unexpected by Norwich City which has created pl...Continue Reading
Saturday 7th April
Following on from an inept performance at QPR I headed to Carrow Road in hope rather than expectation. It has been a largely disappointing season and for 44 minutes against Villa it was largely the same story. With Maddison down injured I decided to beat the halftime queue fo...Continue Reading
We have quite a bit in common with Cardiff City... cathedrals, castles, traditional markets, quality universities and sides capable of spending more time in the top flight.
Firstly I would like to congratulate Cardiff taking the field once again in Blue! What was that all about? It simply will n...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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.... Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
