The Latest Norwich FC Transfer News for 2017 – 2018
- Sat, 25 Sep 2021 16:25:37 +0000: Abdoulaye Doucouré seals victory for Everton over struggling Norwich - Norwich City | The Guardian
Norwich wore fluorescent pink, their fans canary yellow, but otherwise they are not bringing much colour to this Premier League season. Another defeat, this time to a depleted yet more accomplished Everton team, left Daniel Farke without a point from six games and facing more questions about his ability to turn Championship winners into a stable, credible top-flight concern.
Only Portsmouth and Crystal Palace, in 2009-10 and 2017-18 respectively, have opened a Premier League campaign with a longer losing streak than Norwich, who will equal the unwanted record of seven should they succumb again at Burnley next Saturday. It is now 16 successive Premier League losses for Farke’s side, the second longest in English top-flight history. They were the most obliging opponents for Rafael Benítez after he suffered the first defeat of his Everton reign at Aston Villa, followed by a Carabao Cup exit at QPR in midweek. Andros Townsend’s penalty and Abdoulaye Doucouré’s late finish enabled Everton to win their opening three home league games of a season for the first time in 32 years.Continue reading...

Daniel Farke’s struggling side appear the perfect antidote to a difficult week for Rafael Benítez, who suffered the first defeat of his Everton reign at Aston Villa followed by a Carabao Cup exit at QPR in midweek. The question is whether he has the resources, and his players the energy, to capitalise on Norwich’s insecurities following five successive Premier League defeats. The hosts are without six senior players, including their first-choice strikers, and therefore reliant on Salomón Rondón while he strives for match fitness plus others who are in need of a rest according to Benítez.

A finely poised North London derby, a meeting of midfield maestros and Mike Dean refereeing Cristiano Ronaldo
Thomas Tuchel has masterminded three wins out of three against Pep Guardiola since his arrival in England. Another at Stamford Bridge on Saturday will give Chelsea a six-point cushion over the reigning champions after as many Premier League games. Guardiola was roundly criticised following City’s Champions League final defeat for not picking a holding midfielder, despite having lost the FA Cup semi-final between the two sides with both Rodri and Fernandinho in his starting lineup, then a subsequent Premier League match with just the Spaniard shielding his defence. In a fixture where it seems Guardiola can’t seem to do right for doing wrong in terms of team selection, we can only ponder if and how he might “overthink” his tactics for this crunch game. BG

- Tue, 21 Sep 2021 20:54:29 +0000: Liverpool’s Takumi Minamino at the double as Norwich get familiar feeling - Norwich City | The Guardian
Greek internationals of vast promise graced both halves of the pitch, but gifts were only sent one way. Liverpool cruised into the fourth round and suggested that, should they fancy it, they have the depth for a serious tilt at their first League Cup win since 2012.
A relatively experienced side made light work of opponents who are evidently low on morale, repeating the scoreline recorded in the Premier League iteration of this fixture five and-a-half weeks ago.Continue reading...
- Tue, 21 Sep 2021 13:01:45 +0000: Norwich need a win quickly after 15 straight defeats in the Premier League - Norwich City | The Guardian
Having said goodbye to Emiliano Buendía and Oliver Skipp in the summer, Daniel Farke needs his new signings to gel
Norwich had a baptism of fire at the start of the season, beginning the campaign with matches against the last two Premier League champions, Liverpool and Manchester City. The difficulty of their fixtures did not let up, with games against Leicester and Arsenal either side of the international break. After four games, their record read: four defeats, one goal scored – a penalty against Leicester – and 11 goals conceded. The only reprieve in that run came in the form of a 6-0 win over Championship side Bournemouth in the League Cup.
After such a tough start to the campaign, Norwich fans would have seen Watford’s trip to Carrow Road on Saturday as, if not quite a must-win game, certainly one that they could not afford to lose. Xisco’s side had lost their last three league games, while failing to score a goal, so neither side had any form.Continue reading...

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke says he feels he has "credit in the bank", and the club are not looking for a change of direction in the Premier League.
Norwich City have just had a bid to bring Leeds United player Robert Snodgrass to Carrow Road as Neil Warnock last night dashed all hopes of the Canaries signing the talented winger. Manager Chris Hughton is said to be extremely disappointed with the decision as he has been a firm fan of the player for some time but still hold hope that a deal can be struck between the two sides before the start of the season.
Norwich striker Chris Martin and his agent have both stated today that the striker would prefer to stay with the canaries amid rumours the player is surplus to requirements at Carrow Road. The twenty three year old found holding down a regular spot extremely difficult last year and then was loaned out to Crystal palace shortly afterwards but the player has now committed to the club and states he is willing to work for his place which will be great news for Norwich City fans.
Birmingham City defender Curtis Davies is another target for Hughton this summer as he has long been admirer of the young defender after he has made it clear he would like to move on from the Blues. The player is still under contract to Birmingham until 2014 after he arrived at the club from Aston Villa in early 2011 and it is thought the Blues will be holding out for a large transfer fee for the player as they have no intention of losing one of their best defenders for less than his market value.
