  • Thu, 02 Apr 2020 11:00:48 +0000: Pay cuts, furlough or deferrals: what are the Premier League clubs doing? - Norwich City | The Guardian

    From Arsenal to Wolves, we look at what the clubs are doing regarding pay for players, non-playing staff and casual staff

    Arsenal continue to monitor the situation regarding player and staff wages and are playing an active role in the Premier League’s discussions. But there has been no decision taken and the focus has been on ensuring casual employees are looked after. All will be paid as normal until 30 April with the situation reviewed thereafter. Full-time employees were paid for the month on 27 March, as expected. For now there is little appetite to make redundancies. Nick Ames

    Premier League football has been accused of operating in a “moral vacuum” after clubs cut wages or furloughed non-playing staff but continued to pay players their full wage.

    Before a meeting on Wednesday at which the Premier League, English Football League and Professional Footballers’ Association will continue talks regarding pay, there was outspoken criticism from politicians.

  • Sat, 28 Mar 2020 20:00:34 +0000: I know what we shouldn't have done last summer: what Premier League clubs would change | Jonathan Wilson - Norwich City | The Guardian

    Tottenham and Manchester City are among the clubs who would probably make very different decisions if they could reset the Premier League as if it were Football Manager

    The season must be completed. The season must be abandoned now. As the arguments gabble on, only occasionally acknowledging their own hypothetical nature given how little we know about how the virus will proceed, how long the lockdown may last and whether there may be a second wave of infections when it is lifted, it’s tempting t o dip into another hypothetical. What if this were like a game of Football Manager? What if we could quit without saving and go back and start again last summer? What would Premier League clubs, given their time over, do differently?

    Let’s start with the obvious one: Tottenham’s decision to sack Mauricio Pochettino and replace him with José Mourinho. Once a path has been embarked on, there is perhaps some logic in pursuing it to its conclusion, but would Daniel Levy really take that road again? Tottenham are without a win in their past six games. They’ve gone out of the FA Cup and Champions League. They’re seven points adrift of fourth. They’ve kept three clean sheets in 26 games under Mourinho. For Spurs, this season has been a shambles.

  • Mon, 09 Mar 2020 09:00:02 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Norwich City | The Guardian

    Phil Foden gets a reality check, Chelsea’s veterans show their worth and West Ham’s board have a decision to make

    The rehabilitation of Luke Shaw has been a success of Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s reign. A player given harsh treatment by José Mourinho may never turn into the first-choice England left-back he looked set to be as a teenager at Southampton but his recent repurposing as a left-sided centre-back has revealed extra dimensions to his game. It is a highly specialised position, one only really suited to those games where Solskjær sets his team up to soak up pressure, but since Shaw was deployed there at Liverpool in January, 3-5-2 has been the default formation for United’s more testing fixtures. Shaw’s presence also gave Brandon Williams licence to overlap, though both were put through plenty of defensive work by Manchester City. At 24, Shaw has become a senior figure guiding young blood through matches, something inconceivable under Mourinho. John Brewin

  • Sat, 07 Mar 2020 17:19:33 +0000: Billy Sharp sinks Norwich to boost Sheffield United’s European hopes - Norwich City | The Guardian

    Shortly before kick-off the man on the public address system assumed a grave tone and urged everyone to telephone the NHS 111 service should they develop coronavirus symptoms. Throw in the earlier sight of a couple laden down with giant packs of toilet rolls staggering past the ground and it appeared a hint of panic was swirling in the South Yorkshire air.

    If so, it has not reached a Sheffield United dressing room in which a majority of players simply do not do nerves and there is most definitely no fear of scaling unexpected heights. Norwich asked Chris Wilder’s team some searchingly intelligent questions but thanks to Billy Sharp’s winning goal and stellar performances from, among others, John Lundstram and Dean Henderson, these Blades simply shrugged off Daniel Farke’s smart, if ultimately forlorn, tactical button pressing.

    Sunderland will travel to Bury in the EFL Cup first round following their relegation from 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.
