Starting line-up against Colchester?

I remember saying a few weeks ago that I was completely unsure as to what sort of team Bryan Gunn would be putting out against Colchester in the first game of our League One campaign. We are now just three days away from this fixture though and it is fair to say that we have […]

Who should be Norwich City captain next year?

We need a leader to help us win promotion back to the Championship, of that their can be no doubt. We need someone in the Malky Mackay, Iwan Roberts or Craig Fleming mould. We need someone who is 100% committed to Norwich City Football Club. Many of you may argue that there is no-one amongst […]

Who stays and who goes in Carrow Road shake up?

Much talk since Norwich City’s relegation to League One has been about whether Bryan Gunn will stay on as manager next season. In fact, the whole coaching set-up is far from certain at this moment in time. While we are on that subject, what on earth is taking so long? The way I see it […]

Improved defence is down to one man

It is fair to say that Norwich have improved in all areas during the last few weeks. In the most recent five fixtures, three victories and a draw have been achieved. The only defeat came against Blackpool at the beginning of March. Such form has given us a chance of survival in the Championship. There […]

Week In Review: Featuring Peter Cullum, West Brom, Gary Doherty, Aston Villa, Sunderland, Newcastle United and more…

Tuesday 1st July 2008: Tuesday was the day that voting […]

Bring on the start of the season

by Thomas Rooney I just want the season to start now. I was enjoying the transfer rumours and was predicting our starting line up for the first game of the season with optimism. Now, in all honesty – I am fed up of it all. It’s just rumour, after rumour, after rumour from ‘reliable sources’ […]

Ginger Pele finally agrees a new deal

It’s good news that Gary Doherty has finally signed a two-year contract to stay at the club. The 28-year old former Spurs man has taken more than his fair share of stick in recent months, but I think last season he was one of the more consistent performers. Granted that isn’t much praise, but it’s […]

It looks like Paterson is Burnley-bound, but Roeder says…Relax

Long-time City target Martin Paterson looks likely to end up at Turf Moor according to reports, but City chief Glenn Roeder is not worried: We are fine, we will get the players that we want and there isn’t any player signed for another club so far where I feel I have lost out. The ones […]

The axe falls on 9 – including Huckerby

Nine players are free agents after the club announced they will not be offered new contracts for next season: Darren Huckerby Rossi Jarvis Ryan Jarvis Bally Smart Patrick Bexfield Andrew Cave-Brown Steven Arnold Matthew Halliday Juan Valesco The club have also said that they won’t be commenting further on the position of other players who […]

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 […]

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 […]

Between a Huck and a hard place

Since last weekend’s defeat at the Monster Munch Arena brought our thirteen game unbeaten run to a screeching halt talk on the message boards has centred mainly on the exclusion of Darren Huckerby from the squad. At this point I should make absolutely crystal clear that I love Hucks, and when I get my turn […]

Jarvis out, Doc to stay?

Ryan Jarvis has admitted that he doesn’t have a future at Norwich. Gary Doherty has also confirmed that the club have opened preliminary discussions over a new contract. One of these stories I’m quite happy about. The other one I’m not particularly fussed over. Can you guess which is which? I’ll give you a clue. […]

Overall, we’re better off now

The transfer window has now slammed shut and City boss Glenn Roeder has seen a big turnover in his playing staff shipping out nine, adding one permanent and seven new or extended loan players to the Canary squad. Those are some pretty big numbers but does it mean that the squad stronger now than it […]

Who the Iliev is Valentin?

Here’s what we know. Valentin Iliev is a 27 year old Bulgarian centre-half, the current captain of league leaders CSKA Sofia oh and rumoured to be in Norfolk on the verge of completing a £700k switch to the Canaries. We also know he scored a belting goal in the Champions League against Liverpool a couple […]
