What role for Jamie Cureton next season?

We have heard from Jamie Cureton for the first time in a while. The 33-year-old striker – who failed to feature too much at the end of last season – has come out and said that he can’t afford another wasted campaign. Cureton will be 34 in August and is clearly coming towards the end […]

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 […]

Is Gunn the man to lead Norwich next season?

It seems fair to say that there was an inevitable feeling about Sunday’s relegation. A select few may have been hoping for a miracle to happen, but to be honest, many Norwich fans had done their grieving after the defeat to Reading last Monday. However, the manner of the defeat at Charlton was (perhaps naively) […]

Ten conclusions from the Reading game

Like the majority of Norwich City fans, I am pretty depressed about the club’s situation right now. After losing 2-0 at home to Reading last night, we are staring down the barrel of relegation to League One. Only a defeat for Barnsley and a victory for us on the final day will see us remain […]

We’ve brought in some new players – now use them Gunny!

As much as the defeat to Bristol City shouldn’t be considered as too much of a setback, it frustrated me a great deal. It wasn’t just the result, the Gary Doherty red card or the performance of Andy D’Urso though. It was the team selection and the substitutions made by Gunn.  Fair enough, the team […]

And here I was thinking we missed that penalty against Cardiff…


New home kit update

Finally, a picture of the new kit that isn’t at some sort of weird angle (it’s probably been doing the rounds for ages but I only saw it on the official site last night). Here is it pictured above being worn by one of ball-boys for next season – no of course not, it’s last […]

And then there were two…well maybe one and a half

by Thomas Rooney To say the Norwich squad is depleted right now would probably be up there with one of the biggest understatements ever. My main concern, as ever, is the lack of strikers at the club. Jamie Cureton and Chris Martin are the only ones at the club with first team experience . With […]

Where have all the kids gone?

by Thomas Rooney Joe Lewis never played a senior game for Norwich City and after being denied first team football at Carrow Road he was shipped to League Two side Peterborough United. Since the move, he has impressed enough to earn a call up to the full England squad. Someone considered not good enough for […]

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 […]

2007/08 Review: August – featuring Preston, Barnet, Southampton, Hull City and Rochdale

The 2007/08 season kicked-off with a 0-0 draw away to Preston North End on 11th August, and approximately ten seconds of coverage on ITV1’s The Championship the following morning. Most were agreed that Preston, who had narrowly missed out on the play-offs the previous season, would be there or thereabouts come the end of the […]

Norwich City 2007/08: The season in numbers

I love Football365. Inspired by their Season in Numbers feature, I decided to do my own Norwich City-related one: 0 – Weeks spent in the play-off positions. 1 – Goal scored by Chris Brown in a year at Carrow Road. 2 – Red cards picked up by Darel Russell. 3 – Goals scored against Ipswich. […]

QPR Preview

City’s last home game of the season takes place afternoon against Queens Park Rangers. Ryan Bertrand and Mo Camara are both rated as 50/50, so if both are unavailable Matty Pattison may be asked to slot into the left back position. Darel Russell is expected to return to the starting line-up alongside Mark Fotheringham. Expect […]

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 […]

Colchester United Preview

This afternoon the Canaries welcome bottom placed Colchester United to Carrow Road for an East Anglian derby. The game has “six-pointer” written all over it and City will be glad to be able to call on Darel Russell – back from suspension, and I’m expecting recent signing Maceo Rigters to feature. The U’s have a […]
