  1. Just seen this via twitter and the talk Norwich City crew: A little bit of knowledge: Spurs famous home strip of white shirts and navy/dark blue shorts has been present since the 1898-99 season. Founded in 1882 they remain to be the only non-league club to have won the FA cup, back in 1901, since the football league was founded. They were also the first team to win the League and FA Cup double in the 1960-61 season and then the first British club to win a UEFA Club Competition in 1963 - the European Cup Winners Cup. PUPs for the CSF As is now part of weekly routine - please go check out Rays Funds for the CSF with the PUPs Season 15 Week 17 and help raise some dosh for a great cause. Also, very much worth taking a look at @nutty nigel's post for some more info on how that is changing in terms of part of it's name. Special shout out this week to @KiwiScot who started the thread earlier in the week - thank you!
  2. As the image says, Norwich City FC Vs Wolves, KO 3pm GMT. Rainbow Laces Our club continues to support all people of all backgrounds - I for one am proud of the longstanding history they have in this regard. To make things easier for you the link goes to a great article from the club (which you can find by clicking on that text). Which reminds me, I really do need to get myself a set of those laces... Match build-up articles: A look at the opposition from our own club. The regular presser article highlighting the interview with Dean Smith from the Pink'Un. As is the norm, the BBC also have a write up looking ahead to the game. Injuries, suspensions and returns: Norwich: Zimmermann is the only player out injured now. Byram is stepping up his return with the U23's to get back to match fitness and sharpness. Dowell returns after having an illness. Wolves: Neto, Mosquera and Jonny are all long term injury absentees, Willy Boly ruled out with a muscle injury. Something to keep an eye on: We are not yet in December but it would appear that some of our players are already receiving cards from referees. It's fair to say some are more popular in that regard than others. The official premier league website outlines the rules: From what I can make out in this regard, using the same source as above, Normann is currently on 4 yellow cards and should he receive one today, he will be suspended for our next game. That games is away to Newcastle on Tuesday evening (broadcast on Amazon Prime for those that have it). Video At this point I would usually share the "all the goals" video but for some reason, I can't find it anywhere other than facebook even though it has the Canaries TV logo on it which usually means it is also on youtube. However, it doesn't seem to be there. Edit: better late than never I guess?!! ***NEW*** Post Match It occurred to me whilst reading a regular forum member's post match write up that I could also throw in some post match links to things such as highlights, interviews and write ups. As I have created a tag for the threads, my hope is if people want to look up information on past games they can just search the tag and look for the corresponding fixture. So to kick it off, as is now time honoured tradition, and if you don't already - have a look at @ricardo's match write up here. Post match interview with Dean Smith Post match interview with Tim Krul BBC post match article including alternative interview with Dean Smith. I don't advocate relying upon any one set of stats for a game but the BBC's from the linked article report these: Extended Highlights:
  3. Norwich City Vs Southampton KO - 3PM, at Carrow Road. 13/38. And the graphic for our international fans once more - please ignore that it is for our last game Vs Brentford, they haven't done one for today for some reason: Pre match articles: As is part of our weekly routine, the PinkUn have their presser report as well as other articles reflecting on things brought up during it. The BBC always have an article as well which covers some other aspects from a Southampton point of view. This week we also have a treat from the canaries.co.uk club site taking a look at the Southampton side we will be facing today. Round up of injuries/suspensions etc: Norwich - Zimmermann is now the only player out injured. Byram played 45mins in the U23's game Vs Charlton last night and at this point reports are he came through fine. Kabak and Hanley are fit and in contention. As Smith said, clean slate for all of the squad now. Southampton - Redmond back after being out with Covid - which no matter which side you are on, is only a good thing. Livramento and Ward-Prowse also return from having had injuries. Their only player out injured now is Jack Stephens. Video: The official NCFC youtube channel has their usual pre match build up vid highlighting all of the goals we have scored against Southampton over the years - Something interesting: Southampton FC was founded on 21st November 1885, 136 years ago tomorrow. Their nickname has been the "Saints" since their inception due to them starting out as a church football team. The team name back then was called the St. Mary's Church of England Young Men's Association. Their home stadium is therefore named St. Mary's, having moved there from the Dell in 2001. St. Mary's is said (not sure on the accuracy of this due to the source) to be the biggest stadium in the South East outside of London.
  4. As the image says, kick of is 3pm (GMT) at the Brentford Community Stadium. To help our international friends here is the ever useful graphic to let you know the KO time wherever you are. Rays Funds for the CSF with the PUPs Season 15 Week 13 can be found here so there is no excuse not to get involved with a good cause by having some fun with @nutty nigel. Pink'Un match presser report can be found HERE. The BBC pre match article can be found HERE. Injury and Absences summaries: Norwich: Joining long term absentee Byram on the injury list is Hanley who could be out for 2-3 weeks with an abductor injury. Zimmermann has had ankle surgery (I believe to be related to the tackle he recieved Vs West Ham two seasons ago now) so will be out for several weeks. Cantwell is still not considered ready to return. Kabak is struggling with glandular fever and is a doubt too. The good news is that Gibson has served his one match ban so is back into the fold. Having watched the U23's last night, Tomkinson was not involved, so I expect to see him on the bench providing cover, especially if Kabak is unavailable. Brentford: Ajer out for six weeks with a hamstring injury so joins Wissa and Baptiste on the side-lines. Mbeumo is believed to be in contention to start this week, stepping up his return from a hamstring injury that only saw him on the bench last time out. Fact finding: Brentford FC were founded in 1889. They played at Griffin Park, in the London Borough of Hounslow, from September 1904 to August 2020 when they moved to the new Brentford Community Stadium. Griffin Park was built on a former orchard which had belonged to Fuller's Brewery. Those of you familiar with Fuller's will know that their logo features a Griffin, which is where the name Griffin Park came from. The old ground was also said to be the only league ground to have a pub on every corner. Brentford have spent the majority of their time flitting between the third and fourth tiers of the English league system, though they have at times made it higher up the leagues, this tends to be relatively short lived. Their recent success has seen them sustain a run in the 2nd tier and promotion to the 1st tier for the first time since the 1946-47 season. Update - Starting Line Ups:
  5. This weeks game is a 2pm (GMT) Kick-off at home, Carrow Road, to Leeds Utd. As is part of our weekly routine please go support a good cause with @nutty nigel's Rays Funds for the CSF with the PUPs Season 15 Week 12. The Pink'Un presser report can be found here. The BBC lead up article can be found here. Injuries/Suspensions etc: Leeds - Bamford and Ayling out, Raphinha and Firpo look to be fit again and in contention. Norwich - Zimmermann out with ankle surgery, Gibson suspended after two yellows last week. Cantwell and Placheta training so could be in contention, Gilmore back after being ineligible against Chelsea. Something you may not know: Leeds Utd were founded in 1919. Prior to this Leeds had a football club called Leeds City founded in 1904. City were forcibly disbanded by the league in 1919 due to allegations of illegal payments to their players during WW1. Leeds Utd was formed in the same year and essentially took over the spot vacated by the former Leeds City reserve team in the Midland League. Strange to think that Leeds have had at least two moments of financial irregularity in their history, one at the end of the 1910's and the other in the early 2000's. In between the two they built themselves a reputation as a hard, physical team willing to kick and barge their way to victory. Todays side under Bielsa are arguably not as crude as that these days. I was wrong, they are still every bit as crude and dirty as ever! (h/t). Oh and just in case you thought I'd forgotten:
  6. Early Kick off for this one folks - 12:30 GMT at Stamford Bridge. It is being televised on BT Sport for those who have it or who have friends/family you can join or hijack their TV for. As is the norm, the pinkUn has it's presser report and a few separate pieces focusing on some of the news from that on their front page. It sounds to me like poor old Zimmermann is still suffering from that horrific tackle he was on the end of playing West Ham two seasons ago. The BBC also have their pre-match sum up but you'll have to ignore "Lawro's Prediction" if you want to remain positive! For those of you wanting to get into a more positive frame of mind than our old friend Lawro, the club has put together a video of goals our boys in yellow and green have scored in the past. As is now part of our weekly routine of enjoyment you can also go and join in with Rays Funds for the CSF with the PUPs Season 15 Week 11 and help to raise money for a very, very good cause. Interesting little piece of knowledge - there are no football clubs located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Stamford Bridge is actually located in Fulham. Something fans of QPR and Fulham will often remind their Chelsea counterparts. EDIT: Possible piece of insight - apparently, last night, Tzolis switched himself into his own fantasy football team. The last time he did this was Vs Arsenal when he started. As you can imagine, some fans on social media have latched onto this. As a result, there is some belief that he might be starting today. Edit 2: Team
  7. For our international fans: (images taken from #ncfc's official facebook page) Pink'Un pre match presser with all the latest on injuries etc here. As always, also check out @nutty nigel's Rays Funds for the CSF with the PUPs thread.
  8. Kick-off 15:00 at Goodison Park. Couple of pre match reads; The BBC's piece and the Pinkun's pre match conference summary piece. For those that like to listen or watch, Talk Norwich City have a couple of youtube videos they have put up in the last couple of days in the build up to this game. One from Jack: And one from Chris looking at the opposition: Not everyone's cup of tea I know, so perhaps just some goals Vs Everton would be good, courtesy of the NCFC youtube channel. Nice to turn back the years for some good memories sometimes. Also, just in case you missed it, Nutty's CSF PUP's thread.
