Sheffield Wednesday v Norwich Preview

The 2007/2008 regular season comes to an end in the Championship on Sunday, as the Canaries travel to Hillsborough to face Sheffield Wednesday. Sean McAllister could return for the hosts but departing captain Lee Bullen (hamstring) and Burton O’Brien (thigh) miss out. Glenn Roeder will make at least one change to the side that beat […]

Championship Predictions: 28th April 2008

Oh, the sweet feeling of being able to take a look at the Championship table without coming over a little peculiar. Here’s how I think the final league table will look: West Brom (81pts) Stoke City (81pts) Hull City (78pts) Bristol City (74pts) Crystal Palace (71pts) Watford (70pts) Wolves (70pts) Sheff Utd (67pts) Ipswich Town […]

West Brom v Southampton – and why all Canaries should be cheering on the Saints tonight

Until 5pm on Saturday afternoon I was pretty desperate for Southampton to get a thorough stuffing tonight at the Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion. With their wretched goal difference a defeat for the Saints and a draw for the Canaries against QPR would have made us pretty much safe. Now that the threat of relegation […]

QPR Preview

City’s last home game of the season takes place afternoon against Queens Park Rangers. Ryan Bertrand and Mo Camara are both rated as 50/50, so if both are unavailable Matty Pattison may be asked to slot into the left back position. Darel Russell is expected to return to the starting line-up alongside Mark Fotheringham. Expect […]

Poll Results: Norwich v QPR

The results are in, and ooo you’re an ‘orrible lot: What will the Norwich versus QPR result be? Norwich win – 32% QPR win – 56% Draw – 12% I hope for all our sake’s that this is wrong…

Poll: Norwich v QPR

Big, big game on Saturday, but how do you think it’ll go? Results to be revealed tomorrow morning… Poll: What will the Norwich versus QPR result be?

Looking forward to Saturday’s game? I still can’t make my mind up…

I usually look forward to the last home game of the season. I enjoy the awarding of the Player of the Season (although if anyone other than Dion wins it this year I think I might try and start a riot) and, more often than not, I like the lap of “honour” the players do at […]

The Week in Review: 14th-20th April 2008

Monday 14th April 2008. We learned that Stoke would win the Championship, West Brom would finish second, the play-off places would be made up by Watford, Wolves, Bristol City and Hull City, Leicester would join Scunthorpe and Colchester in League One, and the Canaries would finish 14th. We also realised that by reminiscing over previous […]

Championship Predictions: 20th April 2008

Ok this is getting silly now. There’s only two weeks left in the season so you’d think it would get easier to sort out the mess that is the Coca-Cola Championship, but it’s still all over the place. Here’s where I am today: West Brom (83pts). Stoke (81pts). Hull (75pts). Bristol City (75pts). Watford (73pts). […]

Where does today’s action leave us?

Well, pretty much where we thought we were really. Things could have been better, but they definitely could have been much worse. A win next week against QPR will pretty much guarantee safety and a draw could be enough if other results go our way. I’ll have a play with the BBC Predictor again tomorrow, […]

Poll Results: Norwich v West Brom

The results are in: What will the Norwich versus West Brom result be? Norwich win – 29%. West Brom win – 64%. Draw – 7%. We’ll find out in the next couple of hours…

Poll: Norwich v West Brom

The poll went pretty well the other day so I’ve decided to have another bash with a different site to see if it’s any better (sorry, I’m a Tester so I just have to tinker ). Poll: What will the Norwich versus West Brom result be? This poll is now closed. You can view the […]

Championship Predictions: 14th April 2008

Trying to predict the outcome of the Coca-Cola Championship is getting harder and harder by the week, but I’ve had a go anyway. Here’s where I am at the moment: Stoke (81pts) West Brom (80pts) Watford (78pts) Wolves (77pts) Bristol City (77pts) Hull (74pts) Charlton (70pts) Ipswich (68pts) Cardiff (67pts) Plymouth (66pts) Crystal Palace (66pts) […]

Ipswich Preview

Sunday is the big one, the East Anglian Derby at Portman Road. The Tractor Boys welcome Pablo “the human shower” Counago back from his three match suspension for spitting and Shefki Kuqi, David Norris and Jon Walters may all return. Glenn Roeder reported no new injury worries ahead of the big game, so it’ll be […]

Looking ahead to 2008/2009

As regular readers(!) will probably know, I write a column for the excellent Vital Norwich site called “Guru’s Goat”. I used to publish the first couple of paragraphs here and then link to the main body of it, but I figured that was probably a little mis-leading as you wouldn’t necessarily know you were being […]
