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 […]

2007/08 Review: February – featuring Preston, Cardiff, Hull, Leicester and Barnsley

Darel Russell’s injury-time stunner against Preston gave City the perfect start to February in a game low on quality but high on tension. Another late goal – this time a 35-yard screamer from Ched Evans – gave the Canaries a 2-1 win at Ninian Park a week later. Welshman Evans had given City a 15th […]

2007/08 Review: January – featuring Crystal Palace, Bury, Barnsley, Leicester and Southampton

2008 began with the traditional trip to Selhurst Park but unlike recent years didn’t end with a traditional defeat, Darel Russell putting City ahead only for Clinton Morrison to level things up at 1-1. A home FA Cup third round tie followed against Bury, and despite creating several gilt-edged chances City were grateful for Gary […]

Canary Classics: Norwich City v Barnsley, 26th August 2006

It’s not very often that we hammer teams (especially these days) so we should make the most of evidence that we can actually do it. Behold, City 5 Barnsley 1 from the end of the Nigel Worthington era… [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TKjmcfRPjM]

Looking forward to Saturday’s game? I still can’t make my mind up…

I usually look forward to the last home game of the season. I enjoy the awarding of the Player of the Season (although if anyone other than Dion wins it this year I think I might try and start a riot) and, more often than not, I like the lap of “honour” the players do at […]

Championship Predictions: 20th April 2008

Ok this is getting silly now. There’s only two weeks left in the season so you’d think it would get easier to sort out the mess that is the Coca-Cola Championship, but it’s still all over the place. Here’s where I am today: West Brom (83pts). Stoke (81pts). Hull (75pts). Bristol City (75pts). Watford (73pts). […]

This weekend in the Championship

City could very well be safe after this weekend’s games – or we could just as easily find ourselves back within a couple of points of the drop zone with only two games left. The Happy Days Scenario The dream scenario for us would results something along the lines of Barnsley to beat Leicester, Blackpool […]

FA Cup Semi-Final Predictions

My record on predictions hasn’t been too hot lately, but I can’t let an occasion like the FA Cup Semi-Finals go by without having a go can I? West Brom vs. Portsmouth (Live on BBC1 from midday today): When the draw was made I was kind of hoping that this would be the final, but […]

Championship Predictions: 31st March 2008

It’s getting harder and harder to predict how the Championship will finish, so for this week I’ve abandoned the BBC predictor and have taken a leaf out of Luke Skywalker’s book by trusting my instincts. I’m not interested in the play-off picture or automatic promotion at the moment. The only thing that concerns me are […]

Just when you thought it was safe…

I think I may have made a bit of a whoopsy. Like many City fans I’d all but put the 2007/2008 season to bed and was looking forward to a summer of lazing around the park and (hopefully) enjoying some sunshine. A tad premature it would seem. After a tremendous thirteen game unbeaten run which […]

Barnsley Preview

This afternoon the Yellows welcome Barnsley to Carrow Road. The Tykes are riding on the crest of a wave after shocking Liverpool in the FA Cup last week, and City will be hoping that they’ve taken their eye off the ball when they come to town. A few facts… League Position: Norwich 13th, Barnsley 14th. […]

Phil Thompson taking it like a man

I feel duty-bound to post this video here. Just look at Phil Thompson’s face. Priceless. PS I love Jeff Stelling and Soccer Saturday. Absolute class. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGHGbVrNcuk]

What we have learned this weekend – 16th/17th Feb 08

Bit late this week so apologies for that. Four posts in one day? What’s going on? Anyway, what did we learn at the weekend exactly? The FA Cup is still alive: Bristol Rovers beat Southampton and Barnsley upset the apple cart by winning at Anfield to knock Liverpool out of the Cup. What price Benitez […]
