    West Bromwich Albion versus Norwich City - FA Cup 5th Round Saturday 13th February 1982

    So sad to see the passing of one of football's great players and gentlemen this week. Cyrille Regis broke Canary hearts when he scored what was eventually voted by Match of the Day viewers as goal of the season...

    Reasons to be cheerful...

    The current transfer issues have really dampened the fact we are currently undefeated in four games and having recently held money bags Chelsea to a cup draw.

    I spent the best £3 so far this season watching a cracking, all action cup tie with the Under 18's turning over an impressive Derby Count...

    Why has Yanic not been a success?

    Based on the performances of the goal shy Canary footballers this season, I am a little surprised to see that Yanic Wildschut hasn’t claimed a regular shirt this season and now looks to be off to league rivals Cardiff City on loan for the rest of the season.

    Looking at his career to date, he has...

    Alex Pritchard - Huddersfield closing in on Norwich City midfielder

    I must be getting long in the tooth. What I now realise is the club is the constant whilst the players will always be the variable...

    Norwich City have played the big fish over the years, an example being the gap left at Coventry when James Maddison came our way. If Huddersfield pick up Alex Pritc...

    A pragmatic approach to being a Norwich City fan

    I first started taking note of Norwich City as an eight year old living in Lowestoft, strangely lots of people living in the most easterly town in England seem to prefer to support Norwich than the county town of Suffolk. With my parents and brother not particularly interested in football it was my...

    Norwich City v Chelsea - An opposition view

    Norwich City host Premier League Champions Chelsea in the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon. We spoke to Talk Chelsea’s editor Jamie Wilkinson ahead of the game about the Chelsea squad, Premier League expectations and the fixture.

    The Chelsea manager was moaning this week that he had a small squad and ...

  • Memories of my first home, away and cup game
    Memories of my first home, away and cup game

    I often wonder what memories others have of their first visit to Carrow Road. Strangely my recollections have very little to do with the football and more to do with what was happening either on the way to the ground or in the crowd. Perhaps it's that I felt so disconnected from the players on the...

    I go out on Saturday mornings... a match day tale...

    Now if you are not a football fan I only have the summer for reference as to how you may spend your day. As for me, it starts with Danny Baker. And if you have not heard the story of the Dundee United bow tie, made out of plywood, look no further friends...

    The 13A then takes me to Norwich, from...

    So just what is my club?

    As I sit here pondering my next away trip to Burton Albion just what am I going to support?

    Trying to explain to a non football fan just why we do it is hard, you either seem to get it or you don’t. We all know a club is not it’s players, players come and go, hero’s are made (Iwan Roberts if yo...

    We can easily get clouded on what’s happening in our backyard. A Town fan takes time out to compare both clubs…

    City seem to lack any kind of consistency this season. I’ll sum it up as pretty football with no end product from what I’ve seen. The Canaries still have quality players for this level...

    Who’s to blame, and when will things change?

    A devastating two-month run of eight defeats from eleven matches has marred the first half of the 2017/18 season for everyone connected to Norwich City.

    In these situations, fans inevitably seek to assign blame as naturally, frustration is easier to vent if you have a source to direct it at. It s...

  • No more heroes anymore
    No more heroes anymore

    Fans this season have been complaining about the bland football on show at Carrow Road, from lack of chances created to poor defending and a seeming reluctance from anyone to try and take the game by the scruff of the neck.

    Whilst the squad no doubt has some talent (Mr Maddison being one), there...
