It was a hard watch again on Saturday as City were put to the sword and cut to pieces by the ever so sharp Blades. Richard Jeffery was there and has to write about it, so here you go. You might want to sit down, have a cup of tea or hug a stranger afterwards.
Carrow Road welcomes the brave FA Cup warriors back into its (mostly) warm and welcoming bosom this Saturday. Will the players be exhausted? Probably. Will they be desperate to win after the away fixture had so much needle? Probably. What will happen?
The big man is off. Players come and players go and some leave more of a mark on you than others. Cameron Jerome is certainly one of those players that left a mark and Richard Jeffery waves him a fond wordy farewell.
Robins vs Canaries. A bantamweight match up that should see the feathers fly. Look, having been on the receiving end of bird puns for many years, we’re not going to miss the chance to use one or two when we get the chance. Deal with it.
Q: Can Chelsea win at Carrow Road? A: No, they Conte. They came, they saw, they drawdered. Clare Thomas and Rich Jeffery love a Nordic crime thriller, so can’t wait to see The Bridge sequel. In the meantime, here’s what they thought of Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup 3rd round tie between Norwich City and Chelsea.
The Little Yellow Birds return re-energised from their winter break, ready to astound the score prediction world with their incredible accuracy. Or at least have a good try, and everyone loves a trier. A nice easy one to ease us back in, with reigning Premier League Champions Chelsea on their way to Carrow Road for the glamour tie of the FA Cup third round. Surely it can’t be anything but a thrashing, can it?
Two wins, three defeats, a 0-0 draw. Can December really be described as the month Norwich got themselves back on track? Zoë Whitford bids a fond farewell to 2017, a year that promised much and failed often.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Unfortunately we also have a football match to talk about. The LYBP team don their festive hats, raise a large glass of fizz and guess some stuff about the Bees and the Birds. Happy Christmas y’all.
A Christmas miracle! Blow us all down, Norwich did a win, and the fans rejoiced. It felt good, didn’t it? Settle down with a mince pie, a sherry, Rich Jeffery and Zoë Whitford, and relive the absolute magic of City’s 3-1 victory over the Owls.
