What's New
03/04: Preview: Norwich City
Opposition opinion
by Steve Whitlam of Norwich site Flown from the Nest

What happened last season?
Simply were not good enough to keep up a challenge for promotion. Started well but lack of depth to the squad was our downfall. Personally we did well to finish 8th.

What's going to happen next season?
Depends on whether we splash the cash and bring in anyone new. I think we've done well in bringing Jim Brennan to Carrow Road from Forest but we've lost Kenton, Emblen, Nedergaard, Llewellyn, Heckingbottom, Sutch, McGovern since start of last season. We've got promising youngsters but need a few wise heads to help bring them through.

Can you recommend a pub for away fans?
Safe bet might be one of the pubs in the Riverside development near the station

What's the nearest railway station?
Norwich station - the only station in Norwich. A five minute walk from Carrow Road

Where is the best place to park?
Carpark near the station should be close and safe enough. Otherwise try one of the small roads leading off Thorpe Road.

Soundbites (from assorted Census correspondents)

"I learnt more in a 3 minute song than I learnt at school Bruce Springsteen is still the boss"

"City for the Premier 2003/2004"(bit late for that mate - ed) "Wealdstone, what was all that about then?"

"Putting 5 big mac's on a lean mean fat grilling machine doesnt mean you're healthy."

"Good luck for the next season, please dont humiliate us at your place again. Oh and LETS ALL LAUGH AT IPSWICH! David Sheepshanks - Footballing (and financial dealings) Guru. Thankyou and goodnight.
