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. Cardiff performed the classic smash-and grab raid at Carrow Road on 1st September to win 2-1. Simon Lappin got the hosts off to the perfect start after 12 minutes, but the Bluebirds […]

My Norwich City “Leaving XI”

After the Sheffield Wednesday game Glenn Roeder reiterated his intention to completely overhaul his squad with as many as 10-15 players making their exit. I wrote a post called “15 to go” a couple of months ago when Roeder first said we would be losing “up to 15 players”, and although he said over the […]

How you can thank Dion

Would you like to thank Dion Dublin? The club have set-up an email address so people can do just that. The club will then collect all the messages and give them to Dion before he leaves Carrow Road as an additional “thank you” from from the fans for his services to Norwich City and to […]

Happy Birthday Hucks!

Darren Huckerby celebrates his 32nd birthday today. What would be the best possible birthday present I wonder? Come on Glenn, you know it makes sense. Do the right thing! If you’re worried about the cost I’ve even got a simple solution for you here. P.S. Happy Birthday for yesterday Dion. I did remember (honest) but […]

What we have Learned this weekend: 19th/20th April 2008

Jason Shackell is the new Gary Doherty. For months we have read on message boards (and on some blogs…but not here) that Ginger Pele was useless and Shacks was the real star, and now the worm would seem to have turned. In the last few days I’ve seen rather a lot of messages putting the […]

Dion the gent

There’s a good article on Dion in the Independent today which is well worth a read. You can read it by clicking here.

Quotes of the Week: 6th April 2008

Canary boss Glenn Roeder reveals his admiration for Dion Dublin once again: He’s a great human being first and foremost and a great football player after that. I think he’s made the right decision to retire at the end of the season because I believe it’s better for really top players to go out while […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Roeder wants a striker – don’t we all…

Glenn Roeder has said that he is on the look-out for one or maybe even two loan strikers to try and stop our slide back down the Championship table. If I may be so bold Sir Glenn, I highlighted some potential striker signings for you a couple of weeks ago, so you might want to […]

Coventy Preview

This afternoon Roeder’s revival tour hits the road at the Ricoh (couldn’t get any more “R” words in there). Darel Russell is available again following suspension, but Darren Huckerby is a major doubt after missing the Watford game. The biggest decision facing Sky Blues boss Chris Coleman is whether or not to keep faith in […]

15 to go?

Unfortunately, or fortunately, we will probably be losing up to 15 players in the new season, including the six loans. So said Glenn Roeder in the Pink’un this week. The six loan players (Alex Pearce, Mo Camara, Kieran Gibbs, James Henry, Ryan Bertrand and Ched Evans) are therefore givens but who else will be either […]

I’ve made a start for you Glenn…

City boss and future knight of the realm Glenn Roeder has made it clear that a proven goalscorer is right at the top of his list of priorities when he begins his summer restructure at the club. Always one to try and help out where possible, in this week’s Guru’s Goat column for the Vital […]
