    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...

    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 reci...

    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...

  • Craig Bellamy vs James Maddison
    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.

  • 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...

    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...

    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...

  • Thoughts for Sunday from over the border
    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...

  • The best thing to happen this season...so far?
    The best thing to happen this season...so far?

    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...

    Alex Pritchard - Huddersfield closing in on Norwich City midfielder

    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...

  • No more heroes anymore
    No more heroes anymore

    Fans this season have been complaining about the bland football on show at Carrow Road, from lack of chances created to poor defending and a seeming reluctance from anyone to try and take the game by the scruff of the neck.

    Whilst the squad no doubt has some talent (Mr Maddison being one), there...
