Firmly behind team Gunn – We have our club back!

Bryan Gunn is the new manager of Norwich City and I for one couldn’t be happier. He is a legend of the club, bleeds yellow and green and will always have the interests of the fans at heart. If last weekend’s result / performance is anything to go by, the players will respond very well […]

Arturo Lupoli – what has he done wrong?

If there is one thing that annoys me most about Norwich City’s season, it is Glenn Roeder’s decision to leave out Arturo Lupoli, week after week. It drives me insane. What exactly has he done wrong? Four goals in six league starts isn’t exactly the worst record is it? Unsurprisingly, Lupoli has vented his frustrations […]

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 […]

Nicholson won’t be coming in from Aberdeen – and did I just read “3 to 4 weeks”?

Glenn Roeder has categorically ruled out any move for Aberdeen’s out-of-contract star Bryan Nicholson, ever so slightly contradicting what “Head of Player Recruitment” Bryan Gunn told the Aberdeen Evening Express, namely: Barry is one of the players who has been recommended to us and is on our list of targets.

2007/08 Review: November – featuring Ipswich Town, Watford, Plymouth Argyle, Coventry City and Blackpool

November kicked off with a new manager in the form of Glenn Roeder. A lot of people, including me, were rather uninspired by the board’s choice of new manager, and had been holding out for Paul Jewell. If only we knew then what we knew now. The first act of the Roeder regime was to […]

Tony Mowbray wins Manager of the Year at West Brom, but what about Phil Brown, Gary Johnson, Neil Warnock and Saint Glenn?

Cracking little title that isn’t it? It’s catchy, and to the point. Anyway… The Manager of the Year award has always struck me as being a little, well, lop-sided. More often than not the person who wins won the league as is the case this year in the Championship this season after Tony Mowbray of […]

The Week in Review: 28th April – 4th May 2008

Monday 28th April 2008. On Monday I explained why all Canaries should have cheered on Southampton against West Brom, and had a final go on the BBC Predictor to make a few predictions.

Is this the quote that finally puts to rest any thought of Hucks staying?

Glenn Roeder on¬†myfootballwriter.com: I’m absolutely clear in my mind with what players I want to continue to play a part here over the next few years.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our Norfolk dead. In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility: But when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tractor; Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, […]

Quotes of the Week: 30th March 2008

Glenn Roeder scrubs Andy D’Urso’s name from his Christmas list: I’ve got the fourth official screaming in my ear: ‘Glenn, the Bristol City player has handled the ball. I can clearly see that…’ And that’s before the free-kick’s taken. He (D’Urso) even actually came over before the free-kick was taken. And the fourth official told […]
