Encouraging display against Orient

by Thomas Rooney Football is the most popular game in the world for nights like last night. Yes, it was only a League One game against Leyton Orient. Yes, they went down to ten men. Despite this though, I was delighted with the win and loved every single second of it. It was my first […]

Starting line-up against Colchester?

I remember saying a few weeks ago that I was completely unsure as to what sort of team Bryan Gunn would be putting out against Colchester in the first game of our League One campaign. We are now just three days away from this fixture though and it is fair to say that we have […]

What role for Jamie Cureton next season?

We have heard from Jamie Cureton for the first time in a while. The 33-year-old striker – who failed to feature too much at the end of last season – has come out and said that he can’t afford another wasted campaign. Cureton will be 34 in August and is clearly coming towards the end […]

Who stays and who goes in Carrow Road shake up?

Much talk since Norwich City’s relegation to League One has been about whether Bryan Gunn will stay on as manager next season. In fact, the whole coaching set-up is far from certain at this moment in time. While we are on that subject, what on earth is taking so long? The way I see it […]

And then there were two…well maybe one and a half

by Thomas Rooney To say the Norwich squad is depleted right now would probably be up there with one of the biggest understatements ever. My main concern, as ever, is the lack of strikers at the club. Jamie Cureton and Chris Martin are the only ones at the club with first team experience . With […]

Where have all the kids gone?

by Thomas Rooney Joe Lewis never played a senior game for Norwich City and after being denied first team football at Carrow Road he was shipped to League Two side Peterborough United. Since the move, he has impressed enough to earn a call up to the full England squad. Someone considered not good enough for […]

Chris Martin: SuperChav?

From the EDP: Teenage Norwich City striker Chris Martin has been banned from nearly every pub in Waveney after complaints about his behaviour. The 19-year-old is not allowed to enter any of the 68 pubs in Beccles, Bungay, Halesworth and Southwold after being barred from one in his home town of Beccles. The EDP understands […]

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 […]

Between a Huck and a hard place

Since last weekend’s defeat at the Monster Munch Arena brought our thirteen game unbeaten run to a screeching halt talk on the message boards has centred mainly on the exclusion of Darren Huckerby from the squad. At this point I should make absolutely crystal clear that I love Hucks, and when I get my turn […]

Yes Mr. Martin, I have a few questions…

On the official site the club is giving supporters to opportunity to put their questions to Chris Martin for the Barnsley matchday programme. I’ve got a few questions I’d like to ask (and no, none of them are relate to dull and tedious middle of the road pop/rock), but I doubt very much they’d be […]

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, […]

At least we’re in the hat

That’s pretty much the only positive that could be taken from yesterday’s game against Bury. My word we were lucky today. Missing an open goal after 40 seconds wasn’t exactly the best way to start the game and we created enough chances in the first five minutes alone to put Bury to the sword. The […]
