January Window – Goalkeepers

In just a few short days the January transfer window will slide open, the only time between now and the summer where clubs can sign players on permanent deals (apart from free agents of course). Speculation and gossip will, as always, be at fever pitch but in reality not a great deal will happen as […]

Nothing much to report

Even by Norwich’s standards, the opening part to the summer has been extremely quiet. There has been no player / manager interviews for weeks, nobody has joined the club, barely anyone has left it and talk of financial investments is nowhere to be seen. There has been the odd rumour here and there, but nothing […]

Man Utd want Joe Lewis from Peterborough

From the Sun, therefore it must be true: ALEX FERGUSON is trying to tempt his son Darren into making a quick profit by selling goalkeeper Joe Lewis for around £3million. The Manchester United boss wants the England Under-21 stopper to join his squad and would let No3 keeper Tom Heaton move to Peterborough as part […]

Very happy with Hoolahan…now who’s next?

by Thomas Rooney First things first – I am very pleased that we have finally captured the signature of Wes Hoolahan from Blackpool. We have been linked with him all summer and it feels good to actually get someone that we are constantly rumoured to be after – good work Glenn. The best thing about […]

Peterborough to sell Joe Lewis to Everton for £3m according to reports

In today’s Sun: EVERTON are lining up a move for England new-boy Joe Lewis. The £3million-rated Peterborough keeper was on the bench for England’s 3-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday. Goodison boss David Moyes believes Lewis, 20, has massive potential while Liverpool and Manchester United had him watched last season. He was signed […]

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 […]

Canary Watch: Joe Lewis called up to the England squad from Posh

Well done Joe Lewis, who has been called up to the Fabio Capello’s England squad for the games against the USA on Wednesday and Trinidad & Tobago. Lewis was also named in the League Two team of the year last month in what has been a great season for the former Canary ‘keeper.

Ever get the feeling you’re cracking up?

A friend of mine updates me on an almost daily basis with stories of his latest bizarre dream. One of the most recent resulted in him waking up in a cold sweat yelling the value of pi over and over again. Mis-spent youth or too much cheese? I couldn’t possibly speculate, but I’ll go with […]

What was that sell-on clause for Joe again?

According to today’s Sun newspaper, Manchester United and Liverpool have been keeping tabs on City’s former keeper Joe Lewis. It was only last month that the giant keeper left the Yellows to join Posh for £400k, which I believed at the time and still believe now was good business for the club – especially as […]

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 […]

January transfer window

Ok let’s get down to business – and the January transfer window to be more precise. I should make it clear right off the bat I’m not a big fan of it. Don’t get me wrong I understand the principle, and the intention particularly to minimise clubs buying their way out of trouble throughout the […]

£400k for Lewis is big money – and good business

There can be no doubt about that. At 20 Big Joe is at an age where he needs to be thinking about first team football. With David Marshall and Matty Gilks ahead of him in the pecking order first team opportunities at the club were always going to be limited. Add Steve Arnold and England […]
