WOLVES PREVIEW: Buying success “off the peg”, Super Jorge and the Old Gold procession to the Prem

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:10:46 +0000

 As a Norwich-based footie commentator who supports Wolves, Dan O’Hagan is probably better qualified than anyone out there to mull over Wednesday night’s game. So we were chuffed when he agreed to do this week’s Q&A preview: With your Old Gold hat on, you still pinching yourself? To use the old Carlsberg analogy, even if […]

The magic of Klose. Enemies one day, besties the next, and all because of our Timm

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 17:13:34 +0000

If Timm Klose dyed his hair bright red, had some deconstructive dentistry and adopted an exaggerated Scouse accent he could easily become the next Cilla Black. I know this because as his imperious header in the late, late show hit the back of the Barclay net he sparked off the most unlikely bromance you could […]

Ten unbeaten derbies and counting for City but they leave it late… very late!

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 07:32:30 +0000

And breathe… The relief was palpable. Timm Klose’s last-gasp header not only earned City the point they deserved but brought to end six minutes of agony. We know Ipswich will beat us again one day. For those six minutes, it felt as if was yesterday was to be that day. And it didn’t feel good. […]

The Pride of Anglia? Let’s kick off the Norfolk Day celebrations a few months early

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 08:45:58 +0000

I have always been lucky enough to reside in nice neighbourhoods; popping next door for a cup of sugar and a friendly nod and wave as we tramline our urban lawns. Norfolk is truly a beautiful county, soon to be celebrated by our very own first #NorfolkDay on July 27th. We all know of the […]

IPSWICH PREVIEW: Partridge, Toblerone, safe-standing, Russell Grant, Mühren and obnoxious alcoholics

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 11:47:33 +0000

When Gary gave me the nod to do the Ipswich preview, there was only one person I was prepared to speak to; my long-term and long-suffering friend, Rob. After all, he’s the only Ipswich fan I know. He’s a man who has a pair of ‘lucky’ red Y-fronts (don’t ask). A man who once suffered […]

Expectations are rising in NR1, and after Derby the real derby is one to look forward to

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 07:53:21 +0000

There have been some curious going-ons in Suffolk as Ipswich seeks to overturn a dismal derby record, which stems before their current operator took charge of the reins at Portman Road. Long gone are the days of notes being waved in the direction of the Barclay as they (wrongly) thought wealth had arrived in the […]

‘Well up for it’ … ‘Bring it on’ … ‘Going to batter them’ … Oh to be in the grip of the exuberance of youth

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 08:30:31 +0000

I hate the derby. There… I’ve said it. It’s an age thing of course, and on the off chance there is a teenager reading this right now, he/she will be incredulous at anyone not positively salivating at the prospect of engaging with ‘that lot’ again. Social media this week has been brimming full of #NCFC […]

Savvy, grounded, hungry and articulate: Maddison really is something special and appears destined for greatness

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 06:59:11 +0000

At 2pm last Monday, the doorbell sounded. I wasn’t in, instead sat at the library working on both a dissertation and an article for this very website. My housemate was, however, and he knew exactly what had arrived. In a rush of blood, the week before, he had impetuously decided to bid for James Maddison’s […]

“Carefree, ball safe and technically savvy” – If Herr Leitner lives up to his billing we have ourselves a gem, if only for three months

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 07:25:37 +0000

Let’s talk about Moritz Leitner. When he signed, we felt as though we may have pulled off a coup. We added to the German population in Norfolk yet again and this time, he wasn’t “a nobody” from the German third tiers. Some may call that progress. But there was always a hidden issue. As much […]

Six days and counting – and, penalty miss aside, time to cut Nelson some slack

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 07:27:49 +0000

I can’t help but kick off this piece by bringing Daniel Farke’s “philosophy” on penalties – and more importantly, who takes them, to the forefront. After an excellent point and result against Derby – which could, or couldn’t, have been more – Farke said there were two nominated penalty takers in our side, i.e. Nelson and […]
