    Will City ever play Posh in a league match?

    I was born and brought up within the sound of St Peter Mancroft's bells in the heart of our fine City.

    I am also proud of the fact that I managed to prize my away from Norfolk to explore other worlds, in this case 14 years in North Cambridgeshire and South Lincolnshire. The benefit of being in ex...

    Memories of the Old Farm Derbies

    Just to put things into perspective, I am a early sixties baby, so at the age of nine I was extremely fortunate to attend some the successful promotion winning games, leading us into the top division for the first time which included Orient away to secure elevation and a wet Watford to win the title...

    Chucklevision... Chuckle, Chuckle... Vision

    To me, to you, to me, to you... It would appear that Daniel Farke is basing his footballing tactics on the comedy duo and Rotherham fans, Paul and the late great Barry Chuckle.

    The 10 changes which started the game against Stevenage were drilled to perfection in the art of slowing the game to a...

    Matthews Faces Krul Reality

    Having survived Norwich City’s ruthless academy system to earn a professional contract, the 19-year-old Remi Matthews could hardly have expected that he would leave his boyhood club 5 years down the line without making a single competitive first team appearance.

Whilst Norwich City have failed to record a league victory so far this season, the 'Boro have managed a 2-2 home draw with newly promoted Tranmere and recorded a 3-1 away win at Crawley Town, sitting nicely 6th in...

  • First week roundup
    First week roundup

    With the haunting fact that before Saturday, Norwich City had only completed one victory in the last 15 attempts for the opening fixture, the omens did not look good, especially when the boys went 1-0 and then 2-1 down. Justice was achieved with the final equaliser.

    The dreadful but expected sn...

    Birmingham City v Norwich City - Here We Go Again

    Following the relative excitement of the World Cup over the summer, did anyone notice England play with virtually the identical set up and tactics as Daniel Farke, and a quiet one with no City players taking part. The lack of player involvement is potentially an indicator as to the weaker standard...

    Five of the best?

    England enjoyed a lengthy World Cup run this summer, but to the surprise of most, Germany’s time in the tournament was cut mercilessly short. This seemed to free many of Norwich City’s authority figures from all distractions, allowing them to complete some important summer business. Three first...

    England... Norwich City in disguise?

    Another three days of hope awaits us in the 2018 World Cup and I am so pleased and relived as England won and progressed to to the quarters in yet another nail biter and hopefully the penalties have laid a few ghosts to rest, time will tell. 

    There appears to be a quiet revolution going on with ou...

    Life after Madders, step forward Kenny McLean

    Breaking news... life will continue as we know it, or is just be that I am a realist or getting too long in the tooth to get worked up? Norwich City are about to start life in the Championship for the third season running whilst James Maddison has grabbed the opportunity to play for a club who wo...
