Liverpool’s former club secretary, valued by David McNally and delivering Colney’s transformation. Michael Bailey speaks exclusively to Zoe Ward – the woman who is more than simply ‘Webber’s wife’ at Norwich City.
After this week’s mega-money sale of a previous Norwich City deadline day signing in James Maddison, David Freezer decided to make L for last orders please, in our alternative Canaries A-Z summer series.
James Maddison left an indelible impression on Norwich City last season. Paddy Davitt assesses what next for the precocious midfielder and the club he will leave behind, in the latest of our summer report cards.
Chairman Ed Balls admitted he was surprised Norwich City’s ownership and potential fresh investment did not come up at this year’s annual general meeting – but that doesn’t mean the Canaries board isn’t open to the idea of a helping hand.
Tonight’s annual meeting of Norwich City is unlikely to be quite as uncomfortable as the infamous one in 2008, where Glenn Roeder treated a fan who questioned his tactics to the response: “I must have missed your tenure as England manager.”
Out with the old. In with the new. Norwich City have made it clear the new look football structure marks a radical departure. Paddy Davitt assesses who could fit the bill for the key post of head coach.
Most City fans will see 2016 as a year to forget. Following a tame relegation another underwhelming summer transfer window which failed to address chronic defensive issues led into a Championship season that started promisingly, at least in terms of results, but appeared to have slipped into terminal decline as the year petered out.
As more supporters make clear their belief that Norwich City need to change their manager, thoughts are turning to the options available if Alex Neil is to leave, following an eighth defeat in 10 games.
Huddersfield’s performance at Carrow Road was the ultimate indictment of Norwich City’s failure to get value for money from the financial benefits of four Premier League seasons and two funded by parachute payments since Paul Lambert took them up in 2011.
Promotion, promotion, promotion – Jez Moxey’s words echoed around Carrow Road at the AGM as the chief executive insisted the club’s aim of an immediate return to the Premier League hadn’t waned, despite an increasingly abysmal run of form.
It has happened again. Most City fans have forgotten about the relegation hurt and are up for the fight once more, so it’s only appropriate I go through the reasons why we should be optimistic about this season.
By the time you read this I suspect that there will be no aspect of this depressing season that hasn’t been thoroughly dissected in one of the plethora of post mortems available, most of which make excellent reading.
The final whistle at Goodison Park couldn’t come quickly enough at the end of a week that saw Norwich’s relegation confirmed, chief executive David McNally depart and Alex Neil appear to question his own future in charge.
As Norwich City begin their preparations for life outside of the elite, sports reporter GAVIN CANEY looks at why there’s still plenty of reasons to be cheerful once the pain of Premier League relegation eases.
And so we have reached the point that, in all honesty, has looked increasingly inevitable to many people since that crushing defeat to Sunderland, although I suspect that none of us saw the other tumultuous events of the last week coming.
David McNally’s resignation has left the Canaries with some big shoes to fill. Our Fans Zone columnists give their views on his exit as the club approaches a crucial summer whatever division they are in.
A familiar tale for Alex Neil’s men all but condemned Norwich City to another Premier League relegation against Manchester United at Carrow Road. Michael Bailey offers up some key points worthy of further discussion…
Norwich City bounced back to the Premier League at the first attempt, but that barely tells the story of an epic struggle. Chief Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt reflects on a memorable journey.
David McNally is quick to dispel the notion the Canaries’ thrilling Championship play-off final win against Middlesbrough at Wembley puts then at a disadvantage for their latest crack at the Premier League.
They came, they queued, they tapped away at their computer, tablet or mobile phone and in just a little over two hours all remaining tickets for Norwich City’s first trip to Wembley in 30 years were gone.
Carrow Road bosses have confirmed there will be no general sale at all of Wembley play-off tickets to Norwich City fans who are not season ticket holders, away season ticket holders priority club members or shareholder members.
Norwich City chief executive David McNally wants Canaries’ supporters to savour a landmark Wembley play-off final – and let him worry about the financial implications from the self-styled richest match in football.
