Heroes update – who’s gone where?

You may recall that a couple of months ago I wrote about who I would like our “new heroes” to be? Well I decided now would be as good a time as any to have another look and see how many of them are still within out reach… Ched Evans – still at Manchester City, […]

Honey I’m home – have I missed anything apart from Reynolds to Arsenal, Earnie to Nottingham Forest, Cole from Sunderland via Burnley, Ched the hero and the new kit-man?

What a lovely feeling it is, descending from the clouds on the way back from sunny climes to see blighty being battered by rain and wind. That was me first thing this morning, and how lovely it is to be home. I managed to keep up on most of what was going on in our […]

Who will our “new heroes” be? Let me be the first to start speculating wildly…

Glenn’s got my attention with his “new heroes” bit, and God knows we need some. ‘Tis the season when speculation runs wild, but I don’t see why I should be the person to ruin that so here’s a quick list of 10 players I wouldn’t be devastated to see at the club next season (either […]

My Norwich City “Leaving XI”

After the Sheffield Wednesday game Glenn Roeder reiterated his intention to completely overhaul his squad with as many as 10-15 players making their exit. I wrote a post called “15 to go” a couple of months ago when Roeder first said we would be losing “up to 15 players”, and although he said over the […]

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 […]

Quotes of the Week: 30th March 2008

Glenn Roeder scrubs Andy D’Urso’s name from his Christmas list: I’ve got the fourth official screaming in my ear: ‘Glenn, the Bristol City player has handled the ball. I can clearly see that…’ And that’s before the free-kick’s taken. He (D’Urso) even actually came over before the free-kick was taken. And the fourth official told […]

Roeder wants a striker – don’t we all…

Glenn Roeder has said that he is on the look-out for one or maybe even two loan strikers to try and stop our slide back down the Championship table. If I may be so bold Sir Glenn, I highlighted some potential striker signings for you a couple of weeks ago, so you might want to […]

15 to go?

Unfortunately, or fortunately, we will probably be losing up to 15 players in the new season, including the six loans. So said Glenn Roeder in the Pink’un this week. The six loan players (Alex Pearce, Mo Camara, Kieran Gibbs, James Henry, Ryan Bertrand and Ched Evans) are therefore givens but who else will be either […]

I’ve made a start for you Glenn…

City boss and future knight of the realm Glenn Roeder has made it clear that a proven goalscorer is right at the top of his list of priorities when he begins his summer restructure at the club. Always one to try and help out where possible, in this week’s Guru’s Goat column for the Vital […]

What we have learned this weekend – 9th/10th Feb 08

Sometimes rivalries can be put aside, even for just one minute. Manchester City fans impeccably observed the minute’s silence at Old Trafford on Sunday – no doubt much to the disappointment of the media who would have loved a nice “supporters ruin Munich memorial” story. The Premier League no longer represents English football. Read this […]

Quotes of the Week: 10th Feb 2008

Ched Evans on his great week, and demonstrating that you don’t always need to listen to what the manager tells you: It’s been a great week for me with four goals, I’m really pleased with my performances at the moment and I’m just gaining in confidence with every game I play. I’m just glad that […]

It’s not over yet

Well it doesn’t look like we’re going to get that “extra” striker I keep banging on about, but the fact that Ched Evans will now staying until the end of the season is welcome news indeed. And just when it looked like there was nobody else left to leave, Ryan Jarvis has been sent on […]

January transfer window

Ok let’s get down to business – and the January transfer window to be more precise. I should make it clear right off the bat I’m not a big fan of it. Don’t get me wrong I understand the principle, and the intention particularly to minimise clubs buying their way out of trouble throughout the […]

Roll up, roll up, for the Sale of the Century

Tuesday sees the opening of the January transfer window, the only time between now and the summer where clubs can sign players on permanent deals (apart from free agents of course). Historically not a lot has really happened in this time. You tend to get the odd big-money move but usually gossip and speculation far […]
