2007/08 Review: March – featuring Blackpool, Watford, Coventry, Stoke, Sheffield United, Colchester and Bristol City

March wasn’t one of the best months in City’s season. It started with a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Blackpool at Carrow Road. Two goals from Stephen McPhee gave the Seasiders a 2-0 lead going into the break, and although Jamie Cureton’s penalty halved the deficit with twenty five minute to play there would be no […]

2007/08 Review: October – featuring Scunthorpe United, QPR, Bristol City, Burnley and West Brom

Oh October. Where to start? The Yellows were held to a goalless draw by Scunthorpe at Carrow Road three days after the Sheffield Wednesday defeat, and dropped into the relegation zone. The following Monday and the trip to winless QPR live on Sky proved to be the straw that broke Peter Grant’s back. The Wolves […]

It was another busy week on City ‘Til I Die. Here’s everything that happened… Monday 19th May 2008.

On Tuesday we warned QPR off all of our transfer targets […]

Championship Play-Off Final Preview: Bristol City v Hull City

The Robins and the Tigers go head-to-head at Wembley this afternoon for a place in the Premier League in what is generally regarded as the richest game in football. Bristol City have not played in top-flight since 1980, whereas Phil Brown’s Hull have never made the top tier of English football, so I think it’s […]

Delighted for Bristol City – and fair play to Neil Warnock

I’m really pleased to see Bristol City make the play-off final after beating Crystal Palace last night. What Gary Johnson has achieved already at Ashton Gate this season must be the stuff of dreams for Robins supporters, so win lose or draw at Wembley they’ve had a hell of a season. And fair play to […]

Championship Play-Off First Leg Preview: Crystal Palace v Bristol City

The first leg of the Coca-Cola Championship Play-Offs take place this weekend, and first up is Palace against Bristol City at Selhurst Park. Both clubs surpassed expectation to reach the play-offs, but the Robins spent much of the year in the top two so to ultimately miss out on automatic promotion is bound to leave […]

Championship Round-Up: Surely one more win will be enough?

Today’s Championship results were almost perfect for the Canaries: Norwich 2 Burnley 0. I went for 2-1 but 2-0 was even better. Thank you Dion, thank you Ched. Colchester 2 Ipswich 0. The U’s would have been relegated had they lost to Ipswich, who didn’t exactly warm up for next week’s derby in the best […]

Bristol City Preview

This afternoon the Yellow Army rolls into the West Country to meet high-flying Bristol City at Ashton Gate. The Robins will go back on top of the table should they win and Stoke fail to beat Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough, and Canaries chief Glenn Roeder believes they are there on merit: Generally speaking the league […]

Second biggest rivalry in football? You’d better believe it

According to the Football Rivalries Report 2008 the Norwich City/Ipswich Town rivalry is the second biggest and second most bitter in English league football. 99% of Canary fans and Tractor Boys name each other as their biggest rivals, which makes the Old Farm derby the most reciprocated rivalry in the game. The top 10 rivalries […]

What we have learned this weekend – 5th/6th Jan 08

Cup upsets can still happen. Seven clubs (Blackburn, Everton, Birmingham, Bolton, Colchester, Swindon and Brighton) were knocked out and another six (Derby, Fulham, Newcastle, Norwich, Swansea, and Tranmere) held to draws by lower league opposition. Norwich need a striker. It’s obvious for anyone to see that Jamie Cureton needs a ‘big man’ to play off, […]
