2007/08 Review: January – featuring Crystal Palace, Bury, Barnsley, Leicester and Southampton

2008 began with the traditional trip to Selhurst Park but unlike recent years didn’t end with a traditional defeat, Darel Russell putting City ahead only for Clinton Morrison to level things up at 1-1. A home FA Cup third round tie followed against Bury, and despite creating several gilt-edged chances City were grateful for Gary […]

2007/08 Review: September – featuring Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Wolves, Manchester City and Sheffield Wednesday

City’s 100% home record was the first thing to go as September turned out to be a miserable month for all Canary supporters.

Delighted for Bristol City – and fair play to Neil Warnock

I’m really pleased to see Bristol City make the play-off final after beating Crystal Palace last night. What Gary Johnson has achieved already at Ashton Gate this season must be the stuff of dreams for Robins supporters, so win lose or draw at Wembley they’ve had a hell of a season. And fair play to […]

Hucks to Palace?

It’s all about Darren Huckerby at the moment, and unsurprisingly so. Today’s Daily Mirror is reporting that he is wanted by Neil Warnock at Crystal Palace.
