  • Norwich City v Fulham Preview
    Norwich City v Fulham Preview

    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...

  • Can Madders’ past predict his future?
    Can Madders’ past predict his future?

    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...

  • What might have been
    What might have been

    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..

    Where are City?... Oh another international break

    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...

  • What's the point of being a fringe player at Norwich City?
    What's the point of being a fringe player at Norwich City?

    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...

    Don't panic Mr Mainwaring!

    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...

    Nelson Oliveira - No more heroes anymore more?

    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...

    Life living behind enemy lines in the 70's & 80's

    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...

    Norwich City v Bolton Wanderers Preview

    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...

    Wolves v Norwich City (aka Portugal vs Germany)

    Two completely different football styles meet up again this Wednesday at Molinaex with the free flowing, direct, fast overlapping Portuguese taking on the processed, structured, passing and possession Germans who mascarade at Norwich City. Who will come out on top this time?

    Unlike the large major...

    Thoughts for Sunday from over the border

    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...

  • Derby County v Norwich City Preview
    Derby County v Norwich City Preview

    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...
