Let’s get behind Lambert

by Thomas Rooney So, we have ourselves a new manager. We have decided to steal Paul Lambert from League One rivals Colchester United. The same man that guided his team to a 7-1 win at Carrow Road just ten days ago. Imagine someone saying this was going to happen back then? The fact that Bryan […]

2007/08 Review: March – featuring Blackpool, Watford, Coventry, Stoke, Sheffield United, Colchester and Bristol City

March wasn’t one of the best months in City’s season. It started with a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Blackpool at Carrow Road. Two goals from Stephen McPhee gave the Seasiders a 2-0 lead going into the break, and although Jamie Cureton’s penalty halved the deficit with twenty five minute to play there would be no […]

2007/08 Review: December – featuring Stoke, Plymouth, Sheffield United, Colchester, Scunthorpe, Charlton and Wolves.

On 1st December City travelled to the Britannia Stadium to meet high-flying Stoke. Darren Huckerby gave the Canaries a 5th minute lead before Carl Cort equalised for the Potters in the first minute of the second-half, and in the last minute Richard Cresswell broke Canary hearts with the winner for the home side. Three days […]

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 […]

Championship Predictions: 31st March 2008

It’s getting harder and harder to predict how the Championship will finish, so for this week I’ve abandoned the BBC predictor and have taken a leaf out of Luke Skywalker’s book by trusting my instincts. I’m not interested in the play-off picture or automatic promotion at the moment. The only thing that concerns me are […]

What we have learned this weekend – 22nd/23rd Mar 08

We can score more than twice at home. Now that’s more like it. A hat-trick from Jamie Cureton and goals from Jon Otsemobor and Dion Dublin eased the Canaries to a 5-1 win over doomed Colchester. Colchester United are going down. After the way they rolled-over at Carrow Road on Saturday, is there anyone left […]

Colchester United Preview

This afternoon the Canaries welcome bottom placed Colchester United to Carrow Road for an East Anglian derby. The game has “six-pointer” written all over it and City will be glad to be able to call on Darel Russell – back from suspension, and I’m expecting recent signing Maceo Rigters to feature. The U’s have a […]

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 […]

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, […]
