Heroes update – who’s gone where?

You may recall that a couple of months ago I wrote about who I would like our “new heroes” to be? Well I decided now would be as good a time as any to have another look and see how many of them are still within out reach… Ched Evans – still at Manchester City, […]

Week in Review: Featuring Ronaldo/Manchester United, 2008/09 fixtures, QPR/Blackpool, Southampton, Euro 2008, and more…

We haven’t had a weekly round-up for a little while, so here’s what’s been going on at City ‘Til I Die this week: Monday 16th June 2008: Thomas Rooney gave his take on the Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid affair, and we had a quick peek at the coming season’s fixtures. Tuesday 17th June 2008: […]

1.3m and 20 percent sell on: the amount it’ll cost to match Burnley for Paterson

Scunthorpe have confirmed that they have accepted a bid from Burnley for top scorer Martin Paterson. The Clarets have got the best part of £3m (how much??) burning a hole in their back pocket after the sale of Kyle Lafferty to Rangers, but you can’t help but chuckle at the timing and the wording here. […]

It looks like Paterson is Burnley-bound, but Roeder says…Relax

Long-time City target Martin Paterson looks likely to end up at Turf Moor according to reports, but City chief Glenn Roeder is not worried: We are fine, we will get the players that we want and there isn’t any player signed for another club so far where I feel I have lost out. The ones […]

Wednesday Round-Up: Carroll from Newcastle and Paterson from Scunthorpe do the rounds again

There’s no news like old news, and that’s really all we’re left with in the world of Norwich City today. The EDP24 site has again linked us with a loan move for Andy Carroll from Newcastle. But then mention that Derby are also supposedly interested, so no real news there then. The Pink’un meanwhile concentrate […]

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 […]

Week in Review: 19th-25th May 2008, featuring Manchester United, Chelsea, Ronaldinho, QPR, Bristol City, Hull City, Leeds United, Doncaster Rovers and more…

It was another busy week on City ‘Til I Die. Here’s everything that happened… Monday 19th May 2008. The week was kicked-off with a Champions League final poll, and we wondered if Ronaldinho was on Glenn’s list of potential targets. Tuesday 20th May 2008. On Tuesday we warned QPR off all of our transfer targets […]

Burnley have £400k bid for Paterson rejected by Scunthorpe. Let battle commence.

According to today’s Daily Star (that most trusted of all sources), Scunthorpe have rejected a bid of £400,000 from Burnley for striker Martin Paterson (he of potential “new heroes” fame). Given that we supposedly had a £750,000 bid rejected in the January transfer window that’s hardly surprising, but I should think a similar bid now […]

Who will our “new heroes” be? Let me be the first to start speculating wildly…

Glenn’s got my attention with his “new heroes” bit, and God knows we need some. ‘Tis the season when speculation runs wild, but I don’t see why I should be the person to ruin that so here’s a quick list of 10 players I wouldn’t be devastated to see at the club next season (either […]

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 […]

Are Scunthorpe trying to get rid of Martin Paterson?

According to Sky Sports, the Canaries haven’t made a bid for Scunthorpe United striker Martin Paterson. Irons boss Nigel Adkins: Norwich have not been in touch with us at all. I’ve spoken to his agent and to Norwich, but media speculation will abound throughout the summer. The reality of football is that clubs try to […]

Roeder wants a striker – don’t we all…

Glenn Roeder has said that he is on the look-out for one or maybe even two loan strikers to try and stop our slide back down the Championship table. If I may be so bold Sir Glenn, I highlighted some potential striker signings for you a couple of weeks ago, so you might want to […]

I’ve made a start for you Glenn…

City boss and future knight of the realm Glenn Roeder has made it clear that a proven goalscorer is right at the top of his list of priorities when he begins his summer restructure at the club. Always one to try and help out where possible, in this week’s Guru’s Goat column for the Vital […]

How many Irons does Roeder have in the fire?

As I reported on the Vital Norwich site this morning, according to today’s Sun newspaper Scunthorpe‘s Martin Paterson could be on his way after the club were linked with the 20-year old forward. Reports on Sky Sports News suggested that Scunthorpe have already turned down an £850,000 bid from the Canaries. The 5 foot 9 […]
