So here we are, the eve of the East Anglian derby. And for those who have contributed the silly bits to a huge week of build-up, you can go and lay down for a while.

Nelson Oliveira

It seems that regardless of how many times we repeat the mantra “work in progress” in regard to City’s development, when it comes down to it we all perhaps expect rather more than is reasonable at this stage.

Angus Gunn

It’s a small detail but effective – the sight of the Norwich City and Ipswich Town crests (you don’t need the stars) side by side.

Norwich City

As a player or a supporter you can’t beat a local derby, whether it’s the build up in the week or the game itself it’s what we all love.

Norwich

Among the many tweets which flew around after Saturday’s late drama at NR1, one particular message caught my eye.

That sense of dread enveloping any pessimistic Norwich City fan who fears all good things must come to an end in the East Anglian derby should relax. The pressure is firmly on Ipswich Town.

Darren Huckerby’s second dignified departure from Norwich City has brought the club’s youth set-up under the microscope.

One Hull of a draw? MICHAEL BAILEY puts together six lessons learned from Norwich City’s Saturday salvage job.

Norwich City

While international breaks are annoying and disrupt the rhythm of the football season, this one probably came at a very good time for City.

Robbie Savage must have been eating a big old slice of humble pie at breakfast on Tuesday morning after the Republic Of Ireland beat Wales in the winner takes all game at the Cardiff City Stadium to win their place in next month’s play-offs.

As a victorious Cameron Jerome trudged home from Madejski Stadium a fortnight ago, he left one sentiment – if only the next game was tomorrow.

Norwich City

A week ago I was in Scotland, still delighted that Sam Sexton had brought the British heavyweight boxing title back to Norwich – and still wondering whether I really ought to take advantage of the blank receipt book the Edinburgh taxi driver had given me.

Scotland

You know that cliche about the word legend being used and abused? Well, when it comes to Darren Huckerby, the description is as accurate as many of the howitzers that he launched in the good name of Norwich City FC.

The conversations now involving the name James Maddison say it all – MICHAEL BAILEY analyses the midfielder’s rise to Norwich City prominence.

Norwich City

I have never dipped my toe, or anything else for that matter, into the criminal underworld so spending an evening in the company of ‘The Count’, ‘The Gaffer’, ‘Disco’ and ‘The King of Spain’ is the closest I will ever come to sounding like a proper Gangster.

United Kingdom

This is an industry where often you never know what is around the corner.

Norfolk Community Foundation

Reading probably expected to be facing a football team last Saturday, but instead found themselves up against a group of black clad Duracell bunnies who proceeded to harry them mercilessly for 95 minutes.

Premier League

It’s probably a sad indictment of the state of international football, but fortnights like this are definitely good for one thing – taking stock of things at your club.

Norwich City

I don’t think there’s any doubt where September’s Championship Manager of the Month award should have gone – step forward Daniel Farke after what has been a tremendous four weeks for him and his squad of players.

Premier League

The refrain is a familiar one. The power in modern football now resides with players and agents.

Norwich

It’s difficult to ignore that warm, fuzzy feeling in the tummy that must be giving all Norwich City supporters a constant bright yellow Ready Brek glow after super September, but this is just what that dastardly villain that is the Championship wants to happen.

Premier League

Fresh from Madejski Stadium, Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey dishes out his ratings following the Canaries’ 2-1 EFL Championship win at Reading.

Norwich City

What a difference a month makes… MICHAEL BAILEY hands out his Royals realities as Norwich City plunder another win at Reading.

Norwich City

I want to write in praise of the people behind two particular Norwich city centre projects this week.

Norwich

Cast your mind back to last season. City are visiting a team heavily tipped for promotion, are suffering from injuries to key players and come under concerted pressure. What happens next?

Norwich

The declaration was made on TalkSport – but that isn’t the only place I’ve heard it, so stay with me.

Norwich City

I admire Lowestoft Town’s new chairman, Alan Green – but I certainly don’t envy him.

Lowestoft Town

A few weeks ago I was deeply concerned about Norwich City, as I could see a very long, hard, struggling season ahead.

Premier League

There once was an ugly duckling with feathers all fluffy and brown. The opening words of a popular nursery rhyme which I realise now was designed to prepare us to be able to deal with sitting through goalless draws in later life.

So the goals have gone then – MICHAEL BAILEY delivers his six things learned from Norwich City’s goalless draw with Bristol City at Carrow Road.
