“If you’ve got the right coach, you sign the right mentality of player and get them in early, it gives you six weeks for them to gel. Because our identity and the way we played was so nailed at Huddersfield, it was easy from a tactical point of view for people to settle in.”

Naturally, Stockdale’s reception from the Barclay for the second half was rather appropriate. Quite apart from his ‘Suffolk connections’ he’s played a couple of blinders against us in the recent past so his luck had to expire at some point. And absolute praise for Messrs Ruddy, Martin and Bennett.
Canaries delay the Brighton champions’ party and offer the faithful more glimpses of what might have beenApril 22nd, 2017 by Gary Gowers | 16 Comments »
There was no taking away from Pritchard’s impact on proceedings and thanks to the cacophony of noise that accompanied his every flick, trick and dropped-shoulder his evening’s work was played out under the brightest of spotlights.
The money raised by the NCFSC over 2015/16 season will help a team of local footballers with learning difficulties take part in this summer’s National Special Olympics in Sheffield.
Hughton is a man of dignity, integrity and principal. He never shied away from providing the fans with honest, sincere and forthright answers in times of adversity. In a long term sense, things didn’t work out for him at City. I – like many others I’m sure – wish things had ensued differently.
A Norwich City rarity of three points on the road but few lessons to be learned from this ‘friendly’ tourApril 18th, 2017 by Gary Gowers | 18 Comments »
The changes promised post-match by Irvine on Friday were duly delivered with Wes, Jacob Murphy and Nelson Oliveira, three of Friday’s strugglers, finding themselves rested in favour of Messrs Naismith, Jerome and Josh Murphy.
What next for the skip? A great guy and City ‘through and through’ without doubt, but is that enough?April 17th, 2017 by Andy Head | 18 Comments »
Martin has an unshakable belief in his own ability. You can hear it in every interview he gives. Whilst he commendably doesn’t shy away from admitting to a mistake, he will always believe that he can put it right and that he should be in the team to help right any wrongs.
It’s been a subdued start to Wildschut’s City career and I’m certain we’ve not seen the best of him. There’s a dangerous player at this level in there somewhere but it’s not working for whatever reason. However he must stay.
Season is deader than a dead thing in a dead place. And now plenty of scope for a cull of some dead woodApril 16th, 2017 by Martin Penney | 10 Comments »
It must be said that Fulham employed every trick in the book to knock us out of our stride, but apart from a four-corner burst after Cameron Jerome’s goal, we didn’t really hit a stride of any particular note. But that counts for nothing in the grand scheme of things.
More pain inflicted on Canary from Cottager, and not just from Chris Martin’s flailing, wayward elbowApril 15th, 2017 by Gary Gowers | 19 Comments »
Too many within this group are able to excel when the planets are aligned and the going good but lack the wherewithal to impact on a game when the chips are down; their ability to come back from a losing position almost non-existent.
