    Arsene Wenger and Norwich City

    So, at last, Arsène Wenger who started with Arsenal back in August 1996 is leaving the club at the end of the season. He was to influence Norwich City fairly quickly having replace Bruce Rioch, who after a brief failure and sacking as assistant at QPR went onto to do an equally poor job at the Car...

    Alex Neil vs Daniel Farke

    It should be an interesting contest on Saturday with Alex Neil still having an outside chance for the play-offs and Daniel Farke continuing to build a brand which will hopefully produce the goods for Norwich City next season.

    Both appointments were unexpected by Norwich City which has created pl...

    A week in the life of a home and away retired Norwich City fan

    Saturday 7th April

    Following on from an inept performance at QPR I headed to Carrow Road in hope rather than expectation. It has been a largely disappointing season and for 44 minutes against Villa it was largely the same story. With Maddison down injured I decided to beat the halftime queue fo...

    Cardiff City connections, club colours, Neil Warnock and Cambridge in the Premier League

    We have quite a bit in common with Cardiff City... cathedrals, castles, traditional markets, quality universities and sides capable of spending more time in the top flight.

    Firstly I would like to congratulate Cardiff taking the field once again in Blue! What was that all about? It simply will n...

  • Norwich City v Cardiff City Preview
    Norwich City v Cardiff City Preview

    It seems appropriate that the penultimate home game of this frustrating campaign should come against Cardiff City, because in many ways, they represent the opposite of Norwich City this season. The successful operation of a traditional system under a strong-willed English manager has treated Cardiff...

    Craig Bellamy vs James Maddison

    With Cardiff heading into the City this weekend, I thought it might be interesting to compare the two stars as both have made significant contributions in Yellow and Green colours. They both also have the connection of both playing for Coventry City and achieving Under 21 caps for their countries.

    Sunderland v Norwich City Preview

    It will take an admirable amount of loyalty for any Norwich City fan to travel to a Tuesday night match at Sunderland with nothing left to play for. But a certain fanatical section of the Canary faithful will be there, casting a yellow glow within the Stadium of Light as they cheer on the Canaries...

    The Villans are up the City

    Norwich City have just had to endure probably our biggest bogie team at Carrow Road in Fulham and now we have to endure arguably our second biggest bogie team in Aston Villa. Whilst City have ebbed and flowed this season with a few unbeaten runs mixed with a run of games not looking like we will n...

    The peculiar pleasures of mid-table mediocrity

    13th...... 11th...... 9th...... 13th. No, this is not an article about our friends down the A140 (more on them later). These are the finishing places of Norwich City in Division Two (aka The Championship) during the second half of the 1960s: the final season of Ron Ashman’s management and three ye...

    A Yellow Army 5,045 miles away

    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.

    What m...

    Who is next in the hot seat down the road?

    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...

  • Have the wheels come off?
    Have the wheels come off?

    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...
