The Latest Norwich FC Transfer News for 2017 – 2018
- Sat, 10 Apr 2021 16:25:15 +0000: Kieran Dowell’s free-kick fires Norwich past Derby and closer to promotion - Norwich City | The Guardian
It has felt a matter of when and not if Norwich will be promoted for a few months but results elsewhere dictated they will have to wait at least another week to seal an immediate return to the Premier League, despite the Championship leaders overcoming lowly Derby here courtesy of a delicious Kieran Dowell free-kick. Victory over Bournemouth at Carrow Road next Saturday would secure promotion and, while Daniel Farke insists his players are not yet dancing on tables in delight, the finish line is tantalisingly close.
This was not the 7-0 demolition job they managed against Huddersfield on Tuesday and, though not a buccaneering performance, Farke cut a happy figure at full time. “It was not champagne football but a hard-fought win,” he said. “At the end of the season I’m sure we’ll celebrate promotion with this win. Brentford and Swansea have shown they have the quality to win all of their last games. We need two more points. We want to finish in style. I don’t see why we should lose any of our remaining five games.”Continue reading...

Norwich City have one foot back in the Premier League after thrashing Huddersfield Town 7-0 at Carrow Road. Teemu Pukki scored a hat-trick as Daniel Farke’s side moved eight points clear at the top of the Championship.
Emi Buendía, Todd Cantwell, Kieran Dowell and substitute Jordan Hugill were also on target as Norwich moved 17 points ahead of third-placed Brentford, who were held at home by Birmingham. The Canaries now need five more points to secure promotion and could go up on Saturday, if they win at Derby and other results go their way.Continue reading...
- Fri, 02 Apr 2021 16:51:27 +0000: Norwich made to pay as Brad Potts rescues late point for Preston North End - Norwich City | The Guardian
Brad Potts equalised with virtually the last kick of the game to give Preston a hard-earned point in a 1-1 draw with the leaders Norwich in Frankie McAvoy’s first game in charge. The hosts dramatically levelled late on to cancel out Emi Buendía’s early opener, moving them 10 points clear of the relegation zone.
Hull maintained their slender lead at the top of League One after coming from behind to beat Crewe 2-1 at the Alexandra Stadium.
Cheltenham bounced back from losing top spot in League Two with a 4-0 thrashing of promotion rivals Tranmere, but Cambridge remain at the summit. The second-placed Robins responded to defeat last time out with a scintillating first half where Conor Thomas, William Boyle and Alfie May were all on target. Callum Wright added another after the break but they are still two points off the U's.Continue reading...
- Thu, 01 Apr 2021 18:00:46 +0000: 'It's nip and tuck': the Championship's final wild dash for promotion - Norwich City | The Guardian
Norwich have emerged to lead the pack but Swansea, Watford and Brentford will still fancy their chances of a top-two finish
And so we reach the final chapter. The league season might by general consensus be a marathon not a sprint, but this is no time for pacing yourself: what stands in front of the Championship’s promotion hopefuls is several weeks of full-throttle acceleration, a wild dash to breast the finishing tape.
“We’re going into the vital end of the season,” says Steve Cooper, the Swansea manager. “OK, there are still three points a game but it feels like there’s more on it than there has been in previous phases of the season. We’ve got to embrace the challenge. It’s all about grabbing the opportunity with both hands, making the most of it and trying not to have any regrets.”Continue reading...

Norwich City defender Ben Gibson will miss the remainder of the season with an ankle ligament injury.
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.
