    Are we falling short off the field as well as on it?

    So, season one under the Stuart Webber/Daniel Farke alliance is over and change there has been aplenty. On field observations are abundant, but I am intrigued by how the off-field transformation is taking place. This is a Webber/Stone partnership and as important to the future of the club as anyth...

    Who gives a hoot about the Owls?

    After all the excitement of last Saturday's Wessi show, plus the delight of beating another example of Yorkshire's past glory in Leeds United, the Yellows head off to Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday for the final league encounter of the 2017/18 season, so we can finally get in some cricket in before...

    Norwich City v Leeds United Preview

    Apparently the age when a youngster is most likely to be influenced is eight. Therefore, as a youngster, the early seventies allowed me to absorb a great Leeds United team with Billy Bremner, Peter Lorrimer, Mick Jones, Sniffer Clark, Jack Charlton… the list goes on and I am confident I could recite...

    No stats, only misty eyes, memories and poetry

    I will be watching the Leeds game through misty eyes doubtless. For the time has come to say goodbye to Wesley Hoolahan… Hoolahan… Wesley Hoolahan…

    I have often been accused of buying my glasses from the “Hoolahan, rose tinted glasses company” but stand by my opinion. He has been man of the matc...

    Wes the Magician and the Irish Messi

    What we all expected has now come to pass: Wes Hoolahan will leave Norwich City at the end of this season after 10 eventful years in yellow and green. One glance at the nicknames he has acquired over his Canary tenure (“Wessi”, “The Magician”, “The Irish Messi”) reflects the impact that his perfor...

    Three-Year Plans

    Stalin preferred five-year plans but it was unlikely that anyone would have wished to argue with him.

    As for the Stuart Webber/Daniel Farke axis, I’m not sure whether any precise time-scale has been set for ‘the project’ (I’m still puzzled about when and why this term entered the football lexicon,...

    Preston North End v Norwich City Preview

    On Saturday, Norwich City head to Deepdale for the penultimate away game of the season and a chance to minimise the chances of former manager Alex Neil from taking Preston North End in to the playoffs. 

    We have been victorious on our previous two league visits to Deepdale in the Championship how...

  • Arsene Wenger and Norwich City
    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
    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 for t...

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