Forty years ago, in 1972, Norwich reached the semi-finals of the League Cup, beating Arsenal 3-0 after a Graham Paddon hat-trick. And in 1992 City won 4-2 on the opening day of the Premiership competition. Players for both clubs include Terry Anderson, Steve Walford and Brian McGovern.

Our first photos are from a Division 1 game played on the 23 September 1972, which Norwich won 3-2, but ended up 20th in the table at season’s end. Our second series of photos is from when City played Arsenal in Division 1 on 20th April 1983. Our third match from Division 1, which Norwich lost 1-3, was played on 8th April 1992.
