Three wins out of four turns hope into expectation

by Thomas Rooney It has been a fantastic week for Norwich City – six points, three goals, two clean sheets and a place outside the relegation zone. It is now three wins from four games and the increasingly fading hope regarding surviving relegation has now become expectation. Whether this is a good thing though is […]

Norwich v Coventry – three points or… know the rest

The phrase ‘must win’ is used an awful lot in football. However, for Norwich City this weekend it couldn’t be more appropriate. Bryan Gunn’s team – who sit in the bottom three of the Championship – face Coventry City on Saturday and it is a game they simply have to win. The relatively disappointing home […]

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 […]

Rooney’s Championship football preview

It’s that time again for us to look ahead to another set of Championship fixtures. With Norwich struggling to string any sort of results together, discussing how teams from English football’s second tier are going to get on wouldn’t normally be that enjoyable. However, we have some important football betting to look forward to! Swansea […]

Championship football preview

First up, I have to talk about Tuesday night – what a game! I haven’t enjoyed a match at Carrow Road that much in quite some time and it was excellent to be a part of the atmosphere of old. Hopefully it won’t be a one off and it can be used to kick start […]

Championship football preview – who is your money on?

by Thomas Rooney With the international fixtures just around the corner, every Championship team will be hoping to go into the two week break with three points in tomorrow’s games. Norwich will be no different. After two disappointing away performances, Glenn Roeder’s side sit 19th in the league and a victory over Derby County at […]

Championship football weekend preview

by Thomas Rooney After the surprise of England thoroughly entertaining us during the international break thanks to Mr Theo Walcott, it is back to the bread and butter of the Championship this weekend with Norwich searching for their first win of the new campaign. Having performed so well against Birmingham in their last game, Norwich […]

Championship predictions and betting – 08/08/08

by Thomas Rooney  The opening weekend of the Championship season is almost upon us and I thought it might be a good idea to predict the results of the first set of games. I do realise that the first game of the season doesn’t mean much into relation to the rest of the campaign. A […]

Who are the favourites for Promotion? (Part Two)

by Thomas Rooney When I covered the topic of promotion favourites last time, I weighed up the chances or Birmingham, Queens Park Rangers and Reading. This time, I’ll be running the rule over Derby County, Crystal Palace and Sheffield United. All of whom will fancy their chances of mixing it with the Premier League big […]

Who are the favourites for Promotion? (Other than Norwich of course…)

by Thomas Rooney The start of the season isn’t too far away and as always there are teams who are expected to be in and around the top six come the end of the season. Not that it means that much – I seem to remember Norwich being favourites for promotion after relegation from the […]

Norwich City 2007/08: The season in numbers

I love Football365. Inspired by their Season in Numbers feature, I decided to do my own Norwich City-related one: 0 – Weeks spent in the play-off positions. 1 – Goal scored by Chris Brown in a year at Carrow Road. 2 – Red cards picked up by Darel Russell. 3 – Goals scored against Ipswich. […]

Championship Play-Off First Leg Preview: Watford v Hull City

The second Coca-Cola Championship Play-Off game takes place today as Watford meet Hull at Vicarage Road. The Hornets were expected to bounce straight back to the Premier League following relegation last year, but a run of truly horrific form saw them almost miss out on the play-offs completely. Hull on the other hand seemed 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 […]
