    The new Maradona, ‘Farkeball’, the race for second and Miller time

    Emi Buendia has been putting in some man of the match performances in recent weeks in terms of both work rate, scoring and assisting goals. The diminutive midfielder at first glance when joining City looked like a flair player who might get easily knocked off the ball and might possibly disappear in...

    Title chase, blips, strength in depth and the run in

    Norwich City sit proudly at the top of the Championship table two points ahead of Leeds United, four in front of the Blades and having created a whooping nine point gap against the early season much fancied and star-studded Baggies. If another three can be achieved after Friday's visit of Swansea, l...

    Staying power, King Kenny, Psychology and the Lion's thorn

    Norwich indeed blew Bristol City off the park in the second half and to be fair have against most sides including the blip away at Preston and whilst losing created 22 chances which would normally complete a winning outcome.

    Going back to Daniel Farke's arrival, German methods of training were in...

    Saturday 14th February 1959

    We drew 1-1 at Tottenham so there’s going to be a replay on Wednesday evening and Dad said we can try and get tickets. Mr Smith who lives at number 40 is going to take us down the...

    Form teams, weaknesses and who starts?

    Today is another 'massive' game at Carrow Road. A big if, but if Bristol City were to win and also come out on top with their two games in hand, they would find themselves only one point behind the Canaries. With points in the bag, it is a four team chase although the Robins and Middlesbrough can no...

    Belief and sinking ships

    Belief has skyrocketed following the Elland Road victory. A tough batch of games has seen Norwich City draw with chasers Sheffield Utd, West Brom whilst dispatching Leeds United with arguably the best performance of the season.

    What made the 3-1 victory even sweeter was the professional manner in...

    1959: Manchester United

    The story so far. Having made their way past non-league Ilford and fellow Division Three southers, Swindon Town, the Canaries were faced with the thrilling/frightening prospect of facing the might of Manchester United at Carrow Road on the second Saturday in January 1959.

    One seven-year old su...

    West Brom, Jordan Rhodes future and team changes

    A solid point away at West Brom was my judgement from last Saturday whilst of course I am now desperate to see another City victory.

    It's now four games since Norwich City won in the league which is a bit concerning. Having said that most City fans would have taken a point before the start of the...

    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...
