One piece of the Roeder Revolution remaining – the biggest piece

by Thomas Rooney After John Kennedy became signing number eight for Glenn Roeder this summer, attention now turns to filling the role of the ‘big striker’ to partner either Arturo Lupoli or Jamie Cureton in attack. Both players, according to Roeder, work better with a more physical strike partner so now the search is on. […]

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: […]

Daily Mail now claim West Brom are in for Ameobi

Last night the Daily Mail reported that West Brom have moved into pole-position to sign Shola Ameobi from Newcastle: West Brom have made a late approach for Shola Ameobi. The Newcastle forward still favours joining a club in the Premier League, despite Norwich City’s interest, and Tony Mowbray has the £3.5m to land the 26-year-old. […]

Are we about to pip Ipswich to the post and grab Ameobi from Newcastle?

I was settling down last night to watch Location, Location on V+ (I lead a very rock n’ roll lifestyle) when this popped up on NetNewsWire from the Daily Mail feed: Ameobi on brink of £3.5m deal to leave Newcastle for Norwich Norwich are on the verge of signing Newcastle forward Shola Ameobi in a […]

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 […]

Shola’s “Mr. 10%” left to do the talking as Newcastle and Ipswich go quiet

Shola Ameobi’s agent Steven Denos says that no deal has been agreed between Newcastle and Ipswich regarding the sale of the striker, according to the Pink’un: As far as I’m concerned Ipswich have not put a bid in for Shola. There has certainly been no dialogue from Newcastle to me to the effect that a […]

Is business about to pick up as Newcastle apparently accept a bid from Ipswich for Ameobi?

The My Football Writer site is reporting that Ipswich boss Jim Magilton has had a £3.5m bid accepted by Newcastle for striker Shola Ameobi. Meanwhile the Pink’un say that the Toon have actually accepted a £4m bid from the Tractor Boys, and that Ameobi would be “more than willing” to talk to the Canaries. Glenn […]

£5m for Ameobi? He’s all yours Tony…

So Stoke pipped us to the post for Shola Ameobi, but if Glenn Roeder’s right and there’s a £5m future transfer fee attached then good luck to them. In a recent column for Vital Norwich I said that I thought Ameobi could cost anywhere from £1.5m upwards, but £5m? The board have their critics but […]

Canaries linked with Ameobi again, but what about the bigger picture?

The Canaries have again been linked with Newcastle’s Shola Ameobi in the Mirror this week. The paper says that Glenn Roeder is locked in battle with Jim Magilton and Ipswich over the 26 year-old’s signature, but disappointingly there was no mention of a price-tag. There’s nothing really new in this story as we’ve been linked […]

Quotes of the Week: 16th March 08

Craig Fleming reflects on his time with the Canaries: I had some great times at Oldham, playing in the Premiership for three or four years and in FA Cup semi-finals, but the place I feel I belong to is Norwich. Maybe it was the age period I played for City, but that’s where I played […]

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 […]

No more Newcastle signings?

It doesn’t look like we’ll be making any further signings from Newcastle this season then. I don’t know why but I still had a sneaky suspicion Shola Ameobi was going to waltz through the door and be the answer to our goalscoring prayers, but I should have known better. David Edgar and Andy Carroll look […]

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 […]
