So, it’s here again, the East Anglian derby at Carrow Road (I refuse to call it ‘The old farm’, it’s naff). The 55th Norfolk instalment of which Norwich have won 25, Town 17 and 12 draws so far.
Kick off is at its now customary ridiculous time of noon on a Sunday. Why Suffolk and Norfolk rozzers...Continue Reading
My first recollections of the Rams go back to being a nine year old in 1972 when of course the Rams became Football League Champions under the reigns of the mighty Brian Clough.
Being a fledgling keeper it was great to see Colin Boulton flying about in the mud between the sticks and Kevin Hector...Continue Reading
Gary Doherty was far from Spurs' or indeed Norwich's best player during his four and six years respectively with the both clubs – but he certainly had a claim for being one of the most popular. What must not be forgotten was that Gary was named Norwich City player of the season in 2005-6 in what w...Continue Reading
In many respects I am no different to many other supporters of Norwich City or any other football club although I can lay claim to a five-generation family C.V. which stretches back 110 years: Granddad (first game 1908); Dad (1934); Self (1958); Children (1982); Grandchild (2014).
I wouldn’t arg...Continue Reading
Brentford go into this weekend’s game against Norwich City in confident mood following a well-earned victory at Reading last Saturday, and a sequence of five wins in the last six matches.
I doubt Canaries supporters will need many clues to work out when Brentford’s pre-Christmas run started –...Continue Reading
Having won four player of the month awards, picking out the creativity and finishing power of James Maddison would be a no brainer.
However the most warming experience as a City fan for me so far this season is seeing a youth player come through the ranks from apparently nowhere to then instantly...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading
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 ...Continue Reading
