I've been a season ticket at Norwich City since I was about 12 and grew up in the days of Robert Fleck, Bayern Munich and Mike Walker. It's been a rollercoaster ride for the last 19 years we've been promoted 4 times, relegated 4 times, spent a season in the doldrums of league one and now we are flying high* in the premier league. *written in January when we are in the top half!

Norwich's Ex-Leeds United Midfield Dominate QPR | Opta Stats

 This was a game that neither team could lose given both Norwich's 5-0 drumming at Fulham and QPR's perhaps more painful 5-0 defeat at home to Swansea.  Therefore, it had a 1-1 draw written all over it. Norwich really should have won this game and some sharper finishing would have given the Canaries three points but it was a much improved performance with many positives.  The opening goal seemed to summarise all that was positive from the game with the man of the …

2 Goals in 15 Mins Sinks Norwich | Fulham 2 Norwich 1

I'm starting to get irritated with comments like "a year go we would never have dreamed of losing 2-1 at Fulham" that seem to be coming from some of the Norwich support.  Players, managers and football fans want to win and are disappointed when we lose.  I sulk for at least a few days when we lose regardless of if that is against Barnet or Barcelona so I'm not going to shrug it off as being "grateful for where we …

Norwich City 2 Wolves 1| Match & Stats Review

A lot of people are probably not aware that there has been a long-standing rivalry between Norwich City and Wolves, one of our chants is "we only hate Wolves and Ipswich".  The rivalry goes back to the days when the infamous Kevin Muscat seriously injured Craig Bellamy who was our star player at the time and an intimidating encounter when we beat Wolves  in the play-off knock out stage in 2002 despite losing 1-0 in the second leg at Molineux.  …

Firstly, apologies for the late writing of this blog but to be fair the game at Stoke City last weekend didn't leave much to write about.  I didn't make the journey to the Britannia Stadium but by all accounts it was a poor game so I won't dwell too much on this but instead take a closer look at the team selections. I wrote a blog recently about "tinker man" Lambert and how he changes the team for every game and …
Last Minute Goal Sinks the Canaries

Last Minute Goal Sinks the Canaries

In the after match press conference Paul Lambert gave a little smile when he was reminded that two seasons ago, on the same weekend, Norwich beat Oldham away in a league one fixture.  That really does put things into perspective and today fortress Carrow Road was packed out to watch the Canaries play last seasons Premier League Champions Manchester United; and this was no David vs Goliath, we gave them one heck of a game. I've been a season ticket …
