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.

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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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..Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
Watching the Barnsley game on Tuesday and if my memory serves me correctly, it was around the 61st minute when the Norwich City defence had just tracked back to clear another purposeful Tykes attack. In the 18 yard box stood Christoph Zimmerman leaning forward with his hands on his knees and attem...Continue Reading
Yes, of course Norwich City fans want success, another promotion, another trip to Wembley. The final embers, IMO, have now gone out for this season and I realise and understand why some of you gave up weeks ago. Daniel Farke talked in this weeks programme notes on the nature of footy compared to m...Continue Reading
Ok, so I've tried to shoehorn the tenuous link with 'one of our own' Horatio Nelson and the the great post punk single from the Stranglers. It would however seem that the attacking edge to the Canaries this season has well and truly been strangled?
Has Nelson Oliveria been meeting expectations thi...Continue Reading
For eleven years (1974-85), I lived and worked in Bury St Edmunds and, in many respects, it was a vintage period: a lovely town in which to raise a young family; an opportunity to build a career in an environment that offered both stability and challenge; and it was only an hour’s drive for home m...Continue Reading
My first thoughts that spring to mind regarding Bolton Wanderers are firstly Max and Paddy, the TV characters portrayed by Peter Kay and Paddy McGuinness who hail from the area and regularly made BWFC references, the main sketch remembered is when a minibus load of dwarf Bolton fans raided the club...Continue Reading
