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, […]

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 […]

As Birmingham and Reading join Derby in being relegated, what does it mean for us?

We now know that Reading and Birmingham will join Derby in the Championship next season following relegation from the Premier League. Derby’s fate has long-since been sealed but until the weekend just gone the Royals or the Blues could have gotten away with it at the expense of Fulham and (admittedly to a much lesser […]

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 […]

Brady and Sullivan arrested? Quick Glenn, now’s the time to pounce!

Birmingham bosses Karren Brady and David Sullivan have apparently been arrested as part of the investigation into alleged corruption in English football. You might remember that back in December the Blues Managing Director had a pop at Sir Glenn in her Sun column: NORWICH manager Glenn Roeder has been going on and on about how […]

Sepp, why don’t you just Blatter off?

Fifa president Sepp Blatter is at it again. He doesn’t seem to be able to open his mouth without whipping up a storm, and in the same week that Fifa ditched their experiments into using goal-line technology (which is another topic for another time), he’s done it again. The British Olympic Team for a start. […]

Martin Taylor and Eduardo: What does it mean for City?

Now that everyone has had a couple of days to chew over the tackle that broke Eduardo’s leg the overriding sense of opinion seems to be that it was not a malicious challenge, and Martin Taylor didn’t try to hurt the Croatian international; rather it was one of those “freak” occurrences that happen in football […]

What we have learned this weekend: 23rd/24th Feb 08

Somebody outside of the “big 4″ can win a trophy in England. Spurs upset the applecart to land the Carling Cup at Wembley yesterday, and deservedly so. Hucks and Roeder get on just fine. There is no rift, which means less column inches for journos (including us citizen ones) but I’d much rather that was […]


Oh man, that’s not pretty.

Between a Huck and a hard place

Since last weekend’s defeat at the Monster Munch Arena brought our thirteen game unbeaten run to a screeching halt talk on the message boards has centred mainly on the exclusion of Darren Huckerby from the squad. At this point I should make absolutely crystal clear that I love Hucks, and when I get my turn […]

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 […]

That’s three in 24 hours

Numbers two and three on Roeder’s list are Alex Pearce and James Henry (hands up who had them in the sweepstake). Pearce is a 19 year-old defender described on the official site as a “dominant centre back with strong aerial presence and an eye for goal”, has joined until the end of the season, and […]

We’ve signed someone!

Matthew Bates from Middlesbrough is the first signing of the week, coming in on loan until April 28th. Bates has a 24 hour recall clause which Boro can activate after his first month on Norfolk. The big question now has to be whether or not he is an alternative to Martin Taylor, or if our […]

Tick tock, tick tock

Less than 48 hours to go in the transfer window and things look like they might finally be about to go into overdrive.This morning’s Daily Mirror says that Birmingham have won the race to sign Aston Villa defender Gary Cahill with Bolton turning their attention back to Croatia defender Marko Babic of Real Betis, who […]

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 […]
