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 …

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 …

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.  …

Norwich City 0 Chelsea 0 | Match Review

On paper a 0-0 draw with Chelsea looks like a dull end to match of the day with Hanson and Shearer giving it all of 20 seconds of their expert analysis. In fact, is was a thoroughly entertaining 0-0 draw. It wasn't a game of end to end chances more of a display of two good passing sides keeping position well, an easy game to watch from the windy stands of Carrow Road. Norwich City more or less matched Chelsea …

Norwich City | Mid Season comparison to rivals

Whenever I discuss Norwich City's current league position I can guarantee someone will remark "ah, but remember Blackpool last season?"  By coincidence Blackpool also played West Brom away this weekend in the 2010-2011 season but came away 3-2 losers whereas Norwich City this weekend came away with an excellent 2-1 win.   We are only just over half way through the season and we have a very long way to go yet.  Comparing us with Blackpool last season after 21 …

United vs Norwich Preview

United vs Norwich Preview

Following their blistering start to the season Manchester United's recent games have begun to highlight their defensive problems. Whilst bedding in a new goal-keeper makes any team somewhat vulnerable defensively, David De Gea has not been helped by the ease at which teams have breached the defensive lines in front of him. Currently, he has made the highest number of saves (32) in the league, giving him a saves/shots ratio of 86%. Against Stoke and Basel, United should have lost …
