What A Difference A Week Makes - a Norwich Fan's Perspective
11:48 Saturday 14th April 2012

As weeks go, this one has flown by. The bank holiday weekend brought with it two shortened working weeks. It also delivered the best footballing break for canaries fans for some time.Do you remember how things were shaping up before the bank…

Match Report: Fulham 2-1 Norwich City ( A Norwich fan's perspective)
22:35 Tuesday 3rd April 2012

I like Fulham. I like their fans. They're a decent enough bunch and I am always happy for them when they pick up points. They remind me of us in many ways. I just wish they'd stop beating us. Not much to ask, is it?Years ago, we used Charlton…

Norwich 2 - 1 Wolves (Norwich Fan's Perspective)
20:53 Wednesday 28th March 2012

It's not the prettiest game I've ever watched and we're still a long way from our early season form but a resolute and attacking display ulitmately tamed Wolves and we bagged the three points we were craving to get us to safety.Given the results…

Turquoise Boots and "All That Passing Business"
11:04 Thursday 15th March 2012

At halftime on Sunday, as I stood in the warm spring sunshine with my sunglasses on (through necessity, honest!), my thoughts pin-balled between two nagging, inescapable facts.Fact 1. Norwich had started brightly and taken the lead fairly early…

Ten Reasons To Be A Chirpy Canary This Spring
10:21 Thursday 15th March 2012

With ten games to go in Norwich City's first season back with the big boys, it has so far been a blast. Having said that, and to be brutally honest, the last few weeks (Man Utd excepted, obviously) have felt a bit flat for Canaries fans.I cannot…

Match Report: Norwich 1-1 Wigan (Norwich Fans Perspective)
00:04 Tuesday 13th March 2012

In what started as a lovely day, with the sun shining over Carrow Road, a dark gloom soon appeared on the skyline that reflected our performance on the pitch. We'd started very brightly and looked very strong going forward. We even opened the…

An Intentionally Delayed Response To Defeat To Stoke
20:22 Tuesday 6th March 2012

OK, so i've left it a few days before committing my thoughts on the Stoke game to the world. Mainly, because I needed the time to come up with something to actually say.It's not often that I come away from a Norwich game with no emotion other…

Priceless Points, Possession And Even Plaudits From Pundits.
14:07 Sunday 12th February 2012

I'm beginning to understand how difficult it must be to work on the sports desk at the Manchester Evening News. Most weeks are the same. The team turns up, the team dominates the opposition, the team scores more goals than the opposition, the…

Match Report: Norwich 2-0 Bolton (Norwich Fan's Perspective)
00:23 Monday 6th February 2012

After a poor display at Sunderland, Norwich fans knew that the team had to improve vastly in order to get a result against an in-form Bolton. Canaries' boss Paul Lambert made several changes for the game as he reverted back to the 4-4-2 formation…

Sunderland 3-0 Norwich (Norwich Fan's Perspective)
20:16 Friday 3rd February 2012

As a newly promoted team the Premier league was always going to throw up some tough fixtures and Sunderland was one of the hardest we've had so far. Right from the start O'Neill set his side out to get into the faces of our players and gave…

Norwich 0-0 Chelsea (Norwich Fan's perspective)
17:43 Sunday 22nd January 2012

As with all 'shock results', where the underdogs cause an 'upset', it is of course because the ‘bigger' side has underperformed and the smaller side has ‘parked the bus'.Anyway, enough of the inverted commas, let's talk about the game. In this…

West Brom 1-2 Norwich (A Norwich Fan's Perspective)
18:06 Sunday 15th January 2012

Before the game you would have expected a very close encounter between two evenly matched sides yet this was a very one sided affair, although it was the losing side that dominated for large spells.The opening 10 minutes of the game were cagey…

QPR 1-2 Norwich City (A Norwich Fan's Perspective)
22:11 Tuesday 3rd January 2012

How funny was that! What was arguably our most important game of the season ended 2-1 to the boys in yellow, earning us a massive, possibly season defining, 3 points.  A draw would perhaps have been a more fair score line but who said football…

Match Report Norwich 1 Fulham 1 (Norwich Fan's Perspective)
20:12 Sunday 1st January 2012

Sometimes I forget how much of a resilient and purposeful team we truly are. My head began to drop as we went in to 80mins+. I could see that we were pressing but I didn't think the equalizer would come. I'd forgotten how many times we've done…

Norwich City 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur (A Norwich Fan's Perspective)
22:47 Wednesday 28th December 2011

Today's game was one that true football fans will have enjoyed. At the end you could hear a few Norwich fans in the stands and on the Radio Norfolk Moan In (it really was only a few, honest), complaining at how the game had panned out. What…
