This week saw a City legend retire at the tender age of 36. I don't throw the word "Legend" about very often but in the case of Mr Adam Drury it is wholly appropriate. When he signed him from Peterborough for a paltry (these days) £500,000 who knew the impact he would have on the club. One of my favorite memories of Adam Drury was the last game away game of the season against Crewe in 2004. Adam has a shot at goal and nearly hits the corner flag. In unison the city fans sing "' That's why you're left back" he turns and [...]
Our 400 mile round trip on Tuesday night, will be remembered as another new ground to add to the list and little else. We looked forward to seeing the B team play and for some to stake a claim to a first team place. How wrong we were, as only Johnny Howson came out of this no show with any credit. 992 travelling City fans trudged out at the end a tad disappointed at the end of the game. Oh well Blackpool away Saturday should see us back to normal......I hope. To all those travelling up Saturday respect to you all, [...]
At half time Saturday we took part in the pitch parade of all the supporters groups and their flags. Our reps for the day with the F2C flag were Nev Townsend, Rob Stephens Paul Myhill Rick Woods and Mark Boast. Many thanks to all the guys.
Invited members from all official supporters groups attended the meeting on Friday. Around 40 fan representatives attended the meeting with club representatives David McNally, Chris Bailey, Joe Ferrari Romily Broad, Danny Casey and Steve Balmer-Walters. The following is a brief overview of the presentation that David McNally gave at the start of the meeting. The clubs priority is promotion and nothing else. The club banned the word relegation and concentrate only on getting back to the premiership. To do this we need to play attacking football and play to win. The club didn't need to sell any players however the money [...]
Brentford on a Tuesday night is not that appealing to be fair. However if you throw in a couple of beers with the Chelmsford Canaries (Essex Canaries to some) at Waterloo station, and a terrace ticket at Brentford to watch City play. This then becomes a lot more attractive journey. Over 1600 canary fans crammed into the away end. 1000 in the terrace and 600 seated above. The first half saw Brentford go close on a couple of occasions and im sure Neil Adams was glad to go in at 0-0. The second half was a different beast, as City dominated [...]
First game this season that I didn't go to and guess what, it was a cracker so I'm told. Well it was from 45 mins onwards if you are a City fan. Cardiff last season we dominated from start to finish but lost. This time with 25 shots at goal and 4 goals it appears that the Neil Adams style of play is producing the goods.....so far. After the turgid dross we suffered under Chris Hughton the only way was up to be honest. Neil Adams made the bold step to bring on Cameron Jerome at half time and from all [...]
AFC Bournemouth are the latest visitors to Fortress Carrow Road this afternoon. Under the stewardship of Eddie Howe his team will make it tough for Neil Adams side today. Norwich need to keep this unbeaten run at Carrow Road going after 2 good performances against league opposition and a workmanlike performance against Crawley on Tuesday night. Prediction today................2-1 City. OTBC.
New faces in at Colney totalled four over the past 10 days. Most recent addition being midfielder Vadis Odidja-Ofoe from Club Brugge who followed another midfielder from Falkirk by the name of Conor McGrandles. Vadis joins city with plenty of experience behind him while at 18 Conor McGrandles is younger than the Murphy twins. Cameron Jerome and Carlos Cuellar are the other two additions to NCFC championship squad. It remains to be seen how influential these players will be this season. However we wish them every success here at Carrow Rd. Going the other way was Leroy Fer for up to 10 [...]
If offered that at the start of the season, most people would have taken that tally gladly. What makes it even more satisfying is the opposition of Watford, Blackburn and least of all 1p5wich (more on them later) were meant to be tough games. The fact City ran out comfortable winners in two of those games and controlled the third, with only a one goal lead speaks volumes. Moving onto Poorman Rd and the first Old Farm Derby in 3 years. 1p5wich fans were gloating pre match how it was payback time and that City have no history as opposed to [...]
With the championship season well underway Norwich City host Watford in their second league game. Fans will be looking for an improvement on last Sunday's live Sky match at Wolves. That was certainly one to forget and fell into the "Bad day at the office" bracket. The travelling faithful had hoped for three points and a good attacking performance. However one sending off, conceding a goal shortly after that and only one shot on target all game put paid to those hopes. Maybe expectations are far to high amongst City fans and we/they need to step back and give the new [...]
