Coronavirus News

A further 12 people in Norfolk have died after contracting coronavirus, the largest daily rise in deaths so far.

Norwich City

Norwich City should have been on the home straight with the finish line in sight, with a series of crunch fixtures to play that would dictate whether they would remain in the Premier League.

No football but no shortage of talking points involving Norwich City as the game tries to deal with the coronavirus shutdown. Paddy and Connor discussed the key points with fans.

It was the calculated gamble that led all the way to the Premier League. Norwich fan and writer Cory Varney recalls a sad goodbye or two for a couple of magicians, and the green shoots of a recovery under Daniel Farke.

Former Norwich City loan keeper Ralf Fahrmann is not bitter at his treatment in England but admitted he expected more from a Carrow Road spell.
