Another week and another four valuable points for City, although a realistic assessment would be that this is still a side capable of overwhelming the weaker teams on its day, but with fundamental defensive frailties which can be ruthlessly exposed by opponents with more quality.

Half a century ago today, what was then considered a minor miracle occurred at Old Trafford.

Premier League

It was a random fixture change. An exciting fixture too. The prospect of Norwich City taking on Huddersfield under floodlights and in front of the live Sky Sports cameras will be one of the key evenings this season.

Alex Neil

I’ve played over 750 games in my career and have watched hundreds of games over the years, but never in my life have I seen a team score five better goals in one game than Norwich did last weekend against Nottingham Forest.

Liverpool

N orwich City’s thumping win over Nottingham Forest provided a particular problem for us commentators; how to find the right words to do justice to the spectacular goals which lit up Carrow Road at the weekend?

Josh Murphy

Regardless of the actual weather, Sunday morning dawned brightly for Norwich City fans everywhere, as if a large shadow had been lifted from them. But that’s enough about Jez Moxey.

“I want to be here for a significant time. Significant enough for it to be potentially my last club role in English football. I believe in staying in post for good periods of time and if I do that, then that will be a signal we’ve made good progress here at Norwich as well.”

I can understand supporters’ frustrations after the 2-2 draw against Wigan.

Nottingham

Football is often dreamily described as being ‘The Beautiful Game’ but not by anybody who watches it regularly.

BBC

The following is a line us journalists don’t get to write very often - so you might want to take a seat before you read it.

With a significant net profit over this transfer window the board will be pleased to see some relief for the club’s financial position, but what fans will want to know is whether January’s transactions have provided sufficient impetus to an underperforming squad.

Norwich City

There are times when I wonder if being a megalomaniac is something I’d quite enjoy.

If I’m honest I don’t know too much about the two new faces that arrived at Colney in the final hours of Tuesday’s transfer window deadline.

A lot has been written about last year already, but after the week just gone it deserves one more mention – for one more reason.

So was it a positive transfer window for Norwich?
Some City fans will say yes, others will certainly say no. I did a quick straw poll on Twitter and the result was pretty much split.

Timm Klose’s goal against Birmingham City on Saturday was a landmark moment in Norwich City’s season and not just because of the harrowing assault the big defender carried out on the corner flag by way of eccentric celebration.

Norfolk and Norwich Hospital

Desert Island Discs is 75 years old tomorrow and whilst I rarely listen in, I do appreciate the joy of picking out old favourites – and trying to show the world how surprisingly cool you are.

US Federal Reserve

Regardless of the current situation at Norwich City, last week’s victory over Wolves at least served to debunk the long-running myth of Paul Lambert.

Liverpool

Ryan Mason suffered an horrendous fractured skull last Sunday after a shocking clash of heads with Gary Cahill – purely accidental on Gary’s part I hasten to add.

Norwich

Maybe it’s the lukewarm atmosphere we’ve had at Carrow Road. Maybe it’s someone taking a bit of ownership, when others had previously read the body language as more damaging than productive.

Liverpool

Let’s start this column with a memory test.

US Federal Reserve

Being at Carrow Road on Saturday felt like tuning in for one of those special Eastenders episodes when Grant Mitchell or Dirty Den make a surprise return to Albert Square.

Birmingham

There is a danger that today could be more about Paul Lambert than Alex Neil – depending on the time of day.

Norwich City

As this train wreck of a season has lurched from one new low to another, I think that most of us had believed that the increasingly petulant interviews given by Alex Neil were a sign of a man under intense pressure.

BBC

I joined Norwich City way back in July 1997 and played for the club for seven years and apart from a brief spell away (five years to be exact) I’ve lived back in the city for the past seven years.

Norwich

We thought Norwich City’s season had already reached a natural low point but the Canaries have an uncanny ability to limbo underneath any pole the Championship can put before them.

Norwich

You can’t keep a good man down – and Roy Blower was quick to pick up the phone this week after memories were revived of Norwich City’s famous 1959 FA Cup win over Manchester United at Carrow Road.

Norwich

I’m sat several thousand feet above sea level, surrounded by glorious snow capped mountains enjoying a coffee and having a catch up phone conversation with the wife and eldest son.

Norfolk County Council

As a kid in the 60s and 70s I grew up with the magic of the FA Cup. The titanic battles that might go to two or three replays, the giant-killing feats of non-league teams, often achieved on pitches with barely a blade of grass.
