Congratulations to Burnley

Just a quick one today. Huge congratulations to Burnley. They defeated Sheffield United 1-0 at Wembley on Monday in the Championship play-off final to win promotion to the Premier League. It was 100% deserved and caps off a fantastic season for them. Owen Coyle’s men have played attractive football all season and were a joy […]

Week in Review: Featuring Euro 2008, Sheffield Wednesday, Burnley, Manchester United, Newcastle United, the Web Awards and more…

Here’s everything that happened on City ‘Til I Die this week: Monday 23rd June 2008: Thomas Rooney ran the rule over the Euro 2008 semi-finalists. Tuesday 24th June 2008: On Tuesday we remembered a classic Sheffield Wednesday kit, learnt that Burnley still want Darel Russell and looked forward to the unveiling of City’s new away […]

Burnley linked with Rusty again

Hot on the heels of Martin Paterson’s signing Burnley have now again been linked with a move for Darel Russell. When this rumour first surfaced about a month ago I said that I didn’t think it too likely that Rusty would go to Turf Moor, and I haven’t really seen anything since then to make […]

1.3m and 20 percent sell on: the amount it’ll cost to match Burnley for Paterson

Scunthorpe have confirmed that they have accepted a bid from Burnley for top scorer Martin Paterson. The Clarets have got the best part of £3m (how much??) burning a hole in their back pocket after the sale of Kyle Lafferty to Rangers, but you can’t help but chuckle at the timing and the wording here. […]

It looks like Paterson is Burnley-bound, but Roeder says…Relax

Long-time City target Martin Paterson looks likely to end up at Turf Moor according to reports, but City chief Glenn Roeder is not worried: We are fine, we will get the players that we want and there isn’t any player signed for another club so far where I feel I have lost out. The ones […]

2007/08 Review: April/May – featuring Burnley, Ipswich, West Brom, QPR and Sheffield Wednesday

A morale-boosting 2-0 win over Burnley at Carrow Road was the best possible start in a crucial month. Dion Dublin opened the scoring after 2 minutes and countless finger nails were no doubt devoured before Ched Evans sealed the win in the 90th minute. Next up was the East Anglian Derby at Portman Road. Evans […]

Canary Classics – Norwich City v Burnley, 1st October 2006

We don’t have to have won a game for it to be memorable, but sometimes they live in the memory for all the wrong reasons. Take this hammering at home to Burnley for example, the game that signalled the end of Nigel Worthington’s time in charge. It is the first (and I hope last) time […]

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 […]

Burnley linked with Rusty, but who is Richard Offiong?

Burnley have been linked with a £500,000 move for Darel Russell on the Clarets Mad website. The site also claims that the Clarets face competition from Charlton and Palace for Rusty’s services. The 27-year old midfielder only returned to Carrow Road from Stoke a year ago and reportedly signed a three-year deal at the time, […]

Burnley have £400k bid for Paterson rejected by Scunthorpe. Let battle commence.

According to today’s Daily Star (that most trusted of all sources), Scunthorpe have rejected a bid of £400,000 from Burnley for striker Martin Paterson (he of potential “new heroes” fame). Given that we supposedly had a £750,000 bid rejected in the January transfer window that’s hardly surprising, but I should think a similar bid now […]

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 […]

Burnley Preview

This afternoon the Canaries welcome Owen Coyle’s Burnley to Carrow Road. After last weekends’ gut-wrenching loss to Bristol City left the Yellows just three points off the drop zone a win is crucial to keep distance between City and the chasing pack. Gary Doherty could return to the centre of defence, Darel Russell should have […]
