Powder Puff Canaries

What can be said that hasn't been said over the last 8 or 9 games. we finally have reached a new low, a goal keeper who looks as close to being an International keeper  as my granny does.    It was in truth a reasonable showing until the second goal went in,  we moved the ball quicker, used the width  all what was [...]

Give Hooper a Decent Run

 Mike Phelan started work today, getting his real behind the scenes look at the players and seemingly content with what he saw, clearly we will not be privy to any of his thoughts or notions.  One thing I am hoping that Phelan and Adams come up with, is starting Gary Hooper, his goal last week earned  a point plus according to Adams [...]

Dion Dublin is shooting for the Christmas album charts with a festive charity record helping cancer sufferers. Available from iTunes and other online retailers, it features 11 festive tracks performed by bands Dion has managed since hanging up his boots. He said: “It’s quite eclectic.

Nathan Redmond

So the media are proclaiming that Liverpool have now joined the clucth of teams clamouring after Nathan Redmond, but this Liverpool rumour is a little different, the media claims to know exactly how much they are going to offer to get the lads signature. A very tidy sum of £10 million.  I would struggle to see how City could turn that am [...]

How Snatch a Draw from the Jaws of Victory

It is getting a little better,  City's last game against Forest saw them Snatch a defeat from the jaws of Victory , yesterdays game saw a little improvement with snatching a draw.   In a game which was not a classic both sides conjured up 6 goals,  I suppose there are positives to take if looking from the Yellow side.  [...]

Phelan a Giant Step Forward

While everyone is rightly congratulating the club on Mike Phelan's appointment and rightly so, we should be excited by this as Phelan's experience and insight should stand neil Adams and his team in very good stead. My only concern is how much input Phelan will be allowed to have into the team both during a game and in training.  As ha [...]

Mike Phelan is to be the New Coach

We have heard a small whisper from a Journalist in the North West of the Country, who has said Mike Phelan will be named first team coach at City, in the not too distant future. We have not found the quote as yet, but will post it here as soon as we do.    As we suggested  now confirmed....

Now Now RVW

So Mr Van Wolfwinkel  has taken a swipe at City in another article, what he says is a tad unfair; He said: ""I did not like my last year in England but I do not think it has slowed my career," said the 25-year-old. "I was hurt by it. I could not show all my qualities or play every week, plus the team did not practice good f [...]

Hope it isn't a good bye

I hope that the following snippet is not a goodbye, Elliot Bennett was being interviewed in the Brighton Argus and had the following to say. Bennett must sit out the match against his parent club. But he said: “I’ve loved every minute of being at Norwich and I’ll be forever grateful for a chance to play in the Premier League.&rdqu [...]

That's the General Idea.. Ricky

On loan striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel has admitted to Le Progrès that he would like to stay at the club after his loan spell expires from Norwich City. He had the following to say: “I am seriously thinking about it. I would to (stay) even if I know things can evolve very quickly. For it to happen, I need to play well and be important f [...]

Redmond Rumours, Comes as No Surprise

It comes as no surprise that old rumours rehashes and new articles are finding there way to the surface again linking premiership clubs, especially Southampton with Nathan Redmond. Redmond has been catching the eye with his performences of late for City and topped the lot with a man of the match for England u21 during the week which included a hand [...]

Did Robson step over the mark ?

First of all, I am only6 acting as a type of messenger, reporting what I have read...  this was reported in the Mirror today regarding  the sacking of Mark Robson. The Mirror claim that Neil Adams sacked his first team coach after he undermined him in the dressing room after saturday's terrible defeat at Nottingham Forest. The report [...]

The Club would like to thank Mark for his work on behalf of Norwich City and wish him well for the future. First Team Coa [...]

Now or Not At All. ...Stop Twiddling Your Collective Thumbs

I have the night to ponder over the plight, as much as I like Neil Adams as a person and dam nice chap, much like our last manager, (good old little Narridge a really nice well run small town, family club)   Yep as a side note I believe the mentality is back and growing in the corridors of power at Carra Rud. Right back to whatever my ra [...]

Grabbing Defeat from Jaws of Victory

No messing about, something is wrong seriously wrong.  what happened at City Ground should not have happened, whether it was the way the players were instructed to approach our own corners, or the players ignoring instructions I don't know.  But something went Tits uop big time. I saw exactly this a few times under the last managerial [...]

Will We See The Changes Which Are Needed ?

Neil Adams has made it known he prepared to ring the changes in his team for Saturdays important game at Nottingham, but I do wonder over a few  things. Are wholesale changes the correct way to go ?    Changes have been made before during this blip,  and really the results and performence were not better.  We are terra [...]

How will Adams Handle The Next Game after last Night's shambles

After last night's no show and resulting hammering, City have to face another team who started the season in the fast lane and like City have slumped recently, Nottingham Forest. I will be hoping to see a marked improvement from the players, but it is worrying when a player tweets that the Middlesbro players wanted it more, what a damming state [...]

Dire, Not A Promotion Performence

As I write the game is still going on,  standing at 4-0  the worst defeat for a while,  This just adds to gloom that had started to build after such a bad run, not the time to be on the end of such a scoreline. A lot of the good work done earlier in the season is being undone as we continue to drop down the table out of the top six I [...]
