2010/11 Late Goals

Playing around on YouTube always turns up some favourite videos you haven’t seen in a while. For me this morning, it was this little beauty…

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 […]

Albrechtsen leaves West Brom for Derby

West Brom defender Martin Albrechtsen has agreed to sign for Derby County, according to BBC Radio Derby. It was thought that the 28-year old Danish international was on Glenn Roeder’s list of targets for the coming season, but he has seemingly decided that his future lies in the sunny chimes of Derby. Rams boss Paul […]

10 things we can look forward to between now and the start of the season

I haven’t done a Top 10 for quite a while, so here’s a quick list of ten things that’ll probably happen between now and when the season starts in August… – City to continue missing out on players who look for all the world to be our targets, only to be told “we didn’t want […]

Alright QPR, enough’s enough!

About 10 days ago I posted a little shopping list of 10 players I wouldn’t be too upset to see arrive at Carrow Road in the close season, and then three days later they QPR go and snap up Peter Ramage. Then imagine if you will my dismay when I read through the BBC Gossip […]

Canary Watch: Earnie to join Forest from Derby?

Looks like Captain Loyal is going to leave Derby for their local rivals Nottingham Forest. I still can’t really make my mind up about Earnie. He’s definitely goals, goals, goals in the Championship, but cannot seem to cut it in the Premier League. With all due respect I can’t for the life of me work […]

As Birmingham and Reading join Derby in being relegated, what does it mean for us?

Five ways things could be worse for City supporters

I’m still bitter about our derby-day capitulation, but in an another effort to lify my spirits have come up with five ways things could be worse for us City supporters: 1. We could be Derby fans. Relegated from the Premier League before the clocks even went forward, defeated 6-0 at the weekend, at home, a […]

What we have learned this weekend: 29th/30th March 08

It has been a weekend of confirmations if anything, so we’ll look at “what we have confirmed this weekend” instead: Derby are rubbish. Not much to argue there I think. The fact that the BBC website has an article up asking if they are the worse Premier League side in history says it all. Andy […]

What we have learned this weekend – 26th/27th Jan 08

Absolutely b*gger all. There were pretty much no upsets in the cup save for about twenty minutes at Anfield, and Derby getting stuffed at home is hardly unusual is it? Nope, not a lot’s happened round these parts the last couple of days. That is all. Carry on.

FA Cup Fourth Round Predictions (Part 2)

Ok let’s see how I got on this time round with my predictions… Arsenal V Newcastle. My prediction: Arsenal win. Final score: Arsenal 3 Newcastle 0. Off to a good start. 1-0 to me. Barnet V Bristol Rovers. My prediction: Draw. Final score: Barnet 0 Bristol Rovers 1. Always a hard one to call so […]

FA Cup Fourth Round Predictions

If you’ve been reading this blog for longer than a couple of weeks you’ll know that I love the FA Cup, and with this weekend being Fourth Round weekend I thought I’d turn my attention to that and make a few predictions – hopefully I’ll be more successful than I was last time: Arsenal V […]

How I came to love the Canaries

“Why do you support Norwich?” If only I had £1 for each time somebody asks me that. I hear it pretty much every time I tell someone that I’m a City fan.Ask most fans why they support the Canaries and you’ll probably hear the same few answers: “I always have”. “My Dad does”. “It’s in […]
