Lambert and Norwich: it was always going to end like this

The writing had been on the wall for a number of weeks, but no Norwich City supporter should be surprised at the manner of Paul Lambert’s exit…

Paul Lambert

Lambert is too good for Villa, and Liverpool are too stupid for Lambert

Never dull in these parts is it? Nobody would have been shocked when Villa gave Alex McLeish the boot, but I was hoping we would at least have a few weeks this summer before the big red PANIC button was hit on Twitter and the message boards about Paul Lambert’s future.

Liverpool fan pokes himself in the eye

Little Liverpool fan pokes himself in the eye

Liverpool won the Carling Cup yesterday after beating Cardiff City on penalties at Wembley Stadium, but for one little Scouser it all could have gone wrong as poked himself in the eye…

Luis Suarez

Not accused of racially abusing Patrice Evra, not suspected of racially abusing […]

Crouch on his way to Portsmouth from Liverpool: Good on him I say!

by Thomas Rooney When Norwich signed Peter Crouch on loan back in September 2003, he was a forgotten man and rotting in the Aston Villa reserves. Fast forward five years and he is a regular for England and Portsmouth are about to pay £11m for his services. It’s been quite a turnaround for the striker […]

Memorable Football Kits: Liverpool 1989-1991

When I was a lad Liverpool ruled the world, as did nasty flecked-print on football shirts. I suspect this classy little number was the inspiration for the bird-poo kit, so for that reason alone it deserves a mention in my sporadic recollection of classic kits. If memory serves this was the strip the Reds wore […]

Liverpool’s Torres – one more we can cross off the list

Liverpool’s Spanish international striker Fernando Torres has pledged his future to the Anfield club, shattering Glenn Roeder’s dream of pairing the man with the pretty hair with Chris Martin next season. Torres is quoted in the Sunday Express as saying: I want to say very clearly that I’m not on the market and that it’s […]

Liam Harker

If you watched the Champions League game between Liverpool and Chelsea last night you probably saw a banner displayed in support of seventeen year-old Liam Harker, who is suffering from stomach cancer. It was a touching moment and I’m sure I speak for all Norwich City supporters when I wish Liam and his family all […]

Isn’t it interesting to know what constitutes a “disaster” these days?

Liverpool’s co-owner Tom Hicks has said that Rick Parry’s time at Anfield has been a “disaster”. From Sky Sports: We have fallen so far behind the other top clubs. The new stadium should have been built three or four years ago. We have two sponsors, maybe three. We should have 12 or 15. We are […]
