2007/08 Review: February – featuring Preston, Cardiff, Hull, Leicester and Barnsley

Darel Russell’s injury-time stunner against Preston gave City the perfect start to February in a game low on quality but high on tension. Another late goal – this time a 35-yard screamer from Ched Evans – gave the Canaries a 2-1 win at Ninian Park a week later. Welshman Evans had given City a 15th […]

2007/08 Review: January – featuring Crystal Palace, Bury, Barnsley, Leicester and Southampton

2008 began with the traditional trip to Selhurst Park but unlike recent years didn’t end with a traditional defeat, Darel Russell putting City ahead only for Clinton Morrison to level things up at 1-1. A home FA Cup third round tie followed against Bury, and despite creating several gilt-edged chances City were grateful for Gary […]

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. Tuesday 29th April 2008. On Tuesday I made a couple of (correct for once) predictions on the Champions League semi-finals and kicked […]

Incredible day in the Championship: Congratulations West Brom and Stoke, ta-ra Leicester

Today was a pretty exciting day in the Championship, even if the game at Hillsborough turned into a nightmare for us Canaries. Well done West Brom on winning the title; I’d say they were definitely the best team in the division so it’s well deserved. Well done Stoke as well. I’ve not been particularly kind […]

Poll Results: Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or Blackpool – who won’t be very happy on Sunday?

67% of voters agree with me and think the Foxes are for the drop. City’s weekend opponents Sheffield Wednesday only picked up 2% of the vote, so people are either extremely confident that Leicester are doomed or they don’t fancy our chances at Hillsborough on Sunday – probably both. Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or […]

Poll: Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or Blackpool – who won’t be very happy on Sunday?

It’s the final poll of the season (until I think of another one anyway). Southampton’s point at West Brom last night means there is still a real battle on for the third and final relegation place in the Championship, with the Saints, Leicester City, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry City and Blackpool still not safe. I’ve had […]

Championship Predictions: 28th April 2008

Oh, the sweet feeling of being able to take a look at the Championship table without coming over a little peculiar. Here’s how I think the final league table will look: West Brom (81pts) Stoke City (81pts) Hull City (78pts) Bristol City (74pts) Crystal Palace (71pts) Watford (70pts) Wolves (70pts) Sheff Utd (67pts) Ipswich Town […]

West Brom v Southampton – and why all Canaries should be cheering on the Saints tonight

Until 5pm on Saturday afternoon I was pretty desperate for Southampton to get a thorough stuffing tonight at the Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion. With their wretched goal difference a defeat for the Saints and a draw for the Canaries against QPR would have made us pretty much safe. Now that the threat of relegation […]

Looking forward to Saturday’s game? I still can’t make my mind up…

I usually look forward to the last home game of the season. I enjoy the awarding of the Player of the Season (although if anyone other than Dion wins it this year I think I might try and start a riot) and, more often than not, I like the lap of “honour” the players do at […]

The Week in Review: 14th-20th April 2008

Monday 14th April 2008. We learned that Stoke would win the Championship, West Brom would finish second, the play-off places would be made up by Watford, Wolves, Bristol City and Hull City, Leicester would join Scunthorpe and Colchester in League One, and the Canaries would finish 14th. We also realised that by reminiscing over previous […]

Championship Predictions: 20th April 2008

Ok this is getting silly now. There’s only two weeks left in the season so you’d think it would get easier to sort out the mess that is the Coca-Cola Championship, but it’s still all over the place. Here’s where I am today: West Brom (83pts). Stoke (81pts). Hull (75pts). Bristol City (75pts). Watford (73pts). […]

Poll Results: Who’s going down?

The results are in, and the people who have stumbled across this blog have spoken. The results are: Leicester – 47%. Norwich – 13%. Sheff Wed – 10%. Blackpool – 9%. Coventry – 8%. Southampton – 8%. Barnsley – 5%. Looks like the Foxes are favourites to claim the third relegation place, but own up […]

This weekend in the Championship

City could very well be safe after this weekend’s games – or we could just as easily find ourselves back within a couple of points of the drop zone with only two games left. The Happy Days Scenario The dream scenario for us would results something along the lines of Barnsley to beat Leicester, Blackpool […]

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 […]
