Defeat hard to take but encouraging signs are there

Nobody likes losing in the last minute; it’s horrible and one of theworst experiences for a football fan and player. Consequently, that feeling of despair clouds your thinking post-match and it is only really after the dust settles that you can properly analyse a performance. This can be said of Paul Lambert and his coaching […]

Encouraging display against Orient

by Thomas Rooney Football is the most popular game in the world for nights like last night. Yes, it was only a League One game against Leyton Orient. Yes, they went down to ten men. Despite this though, I was delighted with the win and loved every single second of it. It was my first […]

Starting line-up against Colchester?

I remember saying a few weeks ago that I was completely unsure as to what sort of team Bryan Gunn would be putting out against Colchester in the first game of our League One campaign. We are now just three days away from this fixture though and it is fair to say that we have […]

Who stays and who goes in Carrow Road shake up?

Much talk since Norwich City’s relegation to League One has been about whether Bryan Gunn will stay on as manager next season. In fact, the whole coaching set-up is far from certain at this moment in time. While we are on that subject, what on earth is taking so long? The way I see it […]

Ten conclusions from the Reading game

Like the majority of Norwich City fans, I am pretty depressed about the club’s situation right now. After losing 2-0 at home to Reading last night, we are staring down the barrel of relegation to League One. Only a defeat for Barnsley and a victory for us on the final day will see us remain […]

We’ve brought in some new players – now use them Gunny!

As much as the defeat to Bristol City shouldn’t be considered as too much of a setback, it frustrated me a great deal. It wasn’t just the result, the Gary Doherty red card or the performance of Andy D’Urso though. It was the team selection and the substitutions made by Gunn.  Fair enough, the team […]

Plenty of positives from Southampton game

We dropped two points against Southampton last night and it was a bitter pill to swallow. Having played well in the first half, we appeared to be coasting at 2-0 against our relegation rivals, so there is no getting away from the fact that it was a disappointing result in the end. However, it is […]

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, […]

Very happy with Hoolahan…now who’s next?

by Thomas Rooney First things first – I am very pleased that we have finally captured the signature of Wes Hoolahan from Blackpool. We have been linked with him all summer and it feels good to actually get someone that we are constantly rumoured to be after – good work Glenn. The best thing about […]

Finally, Hoolahan signs on from Blackpool

After what seems like an absolute eternity, Blackpool’s Wes Hoolahan was today confirmed to be joining the Canaries. He told the official site: I am delighted to be joining Norwich City. I had several options but as soon as I met the manager and saw the facilities, I knew Norwich City were a club that […]

It was only a matter of time – QPR to offer £375k for Blackpool’s Hoolahan

QPR are set to launch a bid for Blackpool’s Wes Hoolahan with their shiny new money, according to the EDP website. The news won’t come as a major surprise to many as the R’s have certainly been one of the most active players in the transfer market this summer, but I was hoping my updated […]

Honey I’m home – have I missed anything apart from Reynolds to Arsenal, Earnie to Nottingham Forest, Cole from Sunderland via Burnley, Ched the hero and the new kit-man?

What a lovely feeling it is, descending from the clouds on the way back from sunny climes to see blighty being battered by rain and wind. That was me first thing this morning, and how lovely it is to be home. I managed to keep up on most of what was going on in our […]

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 […]

Rigters from Blackburn is the latest to be linked as City are “winning the race” for Bell – they look pretty cheap too…

Blackburn are apparently willing to listen to offers for Maceo Rigters, he of sign on loan and then get injured fame. I think he did a pretty good job for us in the few games he played in before his unfortunate injury down at Ashton Gate, and at the prices being quoted (£350,000 – £500,000) […]

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 […]
