Is Gunn the man to lead Norwich next season?

It seems fair to say that there was an inevitable feeling about Sunday’s relegation. A select few may have been hoping for a miracle to happen, but to be honest, many Norwich fans had done their grieving after the defeat to Reading last Monday. However, the manner of the defeat at Charlton was (perhaps naively) […]

Ten conclusions from the Reading game

Like the majority of Norwich City fans, I am pretty depressed about the club’s situation right now. After losing 2-0 at home to Reading last night, we are staring down the barrel of relegation to League One. Only a defeat for Barnsley and a victory for us on the final day will see us remain […]

Where was the passion lads?

This is going to be a short post. Mainly because, no matter how I feel about Norwich’s situation right now, it is going to keep changing until the end of the season. Over the last few weeks, I have gone through the emotions. One week it’s ‘we are staying up’ then it’s ‘we’re doomed for […]

Championship predictor update – We are staying up!

In football, things change – a lot. This is why it seems necessary to re-do the BBC Predictor in a bid to see how many points Norwich need to avoid the drop this season. Since the last time I did it, we have picked up some more positive results, teams have been in and out […]

Improved defence is down to one man

It is fair to say that Norwich have improved in all areas during the last few weeks. In the most recent five fixtures, three victories and a draw have been achieved. The only defeat came against Blackpool at the beginning of March. Such form has given us a chance of survival in the Championship. There […]

Three wins out of four turns hope into expectation

by Thomas Rooney It has been a fantastic week for Norwich City – six points, three goals, two clean sheets and a place outside the relegation zone. It is now three wins from four games and the increasingly fading hope regarding surviving relegation has now become expectation. Whether this is a good thing though is […]

Norwich v Coventry – three points or… know the rest

The phrase ‘must win’ is used an awful lot in football. However, for Norwich City this weekend it couldn’t be more appropriate. Bryan Gunn’s team – who sit in the bottom three of the Championship – face Coventry City on Saturday and it is a game they simply have to win. The relatively disappointing home […]

Norwich will stay up, just – but it’s curtains for Charlton, Plymouth and Southampton!

It has got to that stage of the season when everyone is starting to look at everyone’s run in. Whether you are vying for promotion or desperate to avoid relegation, who the teams around you are playing seems to suddenly become very significant. This is definitely the case for Norwich who currently sit in the […]

We’ve brought in some new players – now use them Gunny!

As much as the defeat to Bristol City shouldn’t be considered as too much of a setback, it frustrated me a great deal. It wasn’t just the result, the Gary Doherty red card or the performance of Andy D’Urso though. It was the team selection and the substitutions made by Gunn.  Fair enough, the team […]

Signs of change as City make it ten goals in four games

In Glenn Roeder’s last four games in charge, Norwich managed to find the net three times. Two of these were scored by Nottingham Forest. Now though, four games into Bryan Gunn’s reign and we have found the back of the net on ten occasions. If that isn’t a positive sign, I don’t know what is. […]

Plenty of positives from Southampton game

We dropped two points against Southampton last night and it was a bitter pill to swallow. Having played well in the first half, we appeared to be coasting at 2-0 against our relegation rivals, so there is no getting away from the fact that it was a disappointing result in the end. However, it is […]

Firmly behind team Gunn – We have our club back!

Bryan Gunn is the new manager of Norwich City and I for one couldn’t be happier. He is a legend of the club, bleeds yellow and green and will always have the interests of the fans at heart. If last weekend’s result / performance is anything to go by, the players will respond very well […]

Home games and transfer window the key for City survival

Make no mistake about it, Norwich’s main aim this season is to make sure they survive in the Championship. Hope has been lifted after a select few performances, but the reality is that Glenn Roeder’s team will be lurking in the bottom half of the table for many weeks to come. So, what needs to […]

Rooney’s Championship Preview

by Thomas Rooney This season is proving harder than ever in terms of predicting the Championship results ahead of the weekend’s action. As ever, anybody can beat anybody and no team is incapable of picking up an unexpected win. Nevertheless, it is always fun attempting to predict where the points are going to be distributed […]
