Championship predictor update – We are staying up!

In football, things change – a lot. This is why it seems necessary to re-do the BBC Predictor in a bid to see how many points Norwich need to avoid the drop this season. Since the last time I did it, we have picked up some more positive results, teams have been in and out […]

Norwich will stay up, just – but it’s curtains for Charlton, Plymouth and Southampton!

It has got to that stage of the season when everyone is starting to look at everyone’s run in. Whether you are vying for promotion or desperate to avoid relegation, who the teams around you are playing seems to suddenly become very significant.

2007/08 Review: March – featuring Blackpool, Watford, Coventry, Stoke, Sheffield United, Colchester and Bristol City

March wasn’t one of the best months in City’s season. It started with a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Blackpool at Carrow Road. Two goals from Stephen McPhee gave the Seasiders a 2-0 lead going into the break, and although Jamie Cureton’s penalty halved the deficit with twenty five minute to play there would be no […]

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 […]

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 […]

Watford Preview

Tonight the Yellows travel to Vicarage Road to play Watford. Darren Huckerby is a big, big doubt for the Canaries who also have Darel Russell missing through suspension, but skipper Mark Fotheringham is expected to play following suffering a nasty gash to the head in the weekend’s defeat to Blackpool. Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd has […]

Al Bangura

I’m pleased to see that Watford’s Al Bangura won his fight against deportation to Sierra Leone. It’s good to know that occasionally common sense can prevail.
