When Declan Rudd spoke to fans in one of the hospitality lounges ahead of a game at the end of last season, it was clear he felt his future was at Norwich City.

That Jacob Murphy would interest Premier League clubs should surprise no-one. The pertinent question is how Norwich City respond to any tangible interest and how much they value this homegrown talent.

Norwich City’s summer recruitment from elsewhere is in full flow – yet MICHAEL BAILEY wonders whether the Canaries’ academy is falling short on helping out

Norwich City

According to Mark Twain, “golf is a good walk spoiled”.

Three out and now the first one in – Michael Bailey looks at what Norwich City’s new centre-back Christoph Zimmermann means for the bigger defensive picture at Carrow Road.

Of the many blue plaques that adorn various buildings in Norwich, two are dedicated to boxers.

A few years ago now my Sky TV subscription was cut back to the quick.

With Angus on the brink of returning to his boyhood club, MICHAEL BAILEY believes the time is right for the Norwich-born keeper to show what he’s got

Norwich City

I know Stuart Webber has impressed a lot of people since being named as Norwich City’s new sporting director – and his pronouncement that transfer business will be over before deadline day is to be welcomed.

I am sure mail boxes the country over are filled with weird and wonderful stuff.

Curious things happen in the life of a journalist – mostly things which leaves us feeling privileged to be part of the profession.

We all love a secret, some inside information – it’s what football fans, in particular, thrive upon.

The final game of the season is always something of a bittersweet affair because that cosily familiar weekend routine of the last nine months is about to be replaced by wondering what to do on a Saturday afternoon – and August seems such a long way away.

I want to take the discussion out of Norwich this week and talk about a place in Norfolk also dear to my heart - Great Yarmouth.

United States

It’s the S word. It kept popping up time and again, and not just this season: Sunderland. It’s always been Sunderland.

Norwich City

At the end of one of the most frustrating seasons that I can remember at Norwich City in recent years the lads put on a performance that all concerned could be proud of against QPR, which meant three wins in their final four games for Alex Irvine’s men.

Norwich

I was reminded of a conversation with Alex Neil as John Ruddy and his family took their bow at Carrow Road.

Norwich

The fact that City can be irresistible going forward when the mood takes them but show less backbone than an amoeba when the going gets tough defensively is hardly news, so the loss of a three-goal lead at Elland Road will surprise nobody.

Every year around this time, Darren Huckerby comes to mind. A man who proved season upon season, to be the difference at Carrow Road.

There’s been a softness about this Norwich team away from home this season that even though they did so many good things at Elland Road was all undone once again by poor defending.

United Kingdom

So it’s been another quiet couple of weeks at Carrow Road since my last column then!

It’s absurd that some Norwich City supporters still persist with the idea that teams stop trying when the season reaches the point that neither promotion nor relegation are possible.

BBC

Don’t worry everyone - Dave hasn’t disappeared!

Boxing thrives on hype. From men jumping over cars to attack their opponent, to sinking their gnashers into unguarded legs at the now infamous head-to-head events.

Isn’t it just typical of City’s frustrating season that we’ve seen such a belated upturn in form?

Given people have finally stopped sending in emails about how Alex Neil’s name should be pronounced, it’s nice the same discussion doesn’t have to come up with Alex Pritchard.

Norwich

It’s not every day you win a game when you haven’t managed an effort on target, but that’s exactly what Norwich did last Friday when they beat title hopefuls Brighton 2-0 at Carrow Road.

Norwich

It’s more than three years since Chris Hughton was told to clear his desk at Carrow Road.
