I have to say what an eventful last weekend it was in the Premier League!

Given the paucity of good news around Norwich City since another East Anglian derby conquest it was inevitable Alex Pritchard’s return to the starting line up triggered so many headlines.


A long time coming and almost worth the wait – MICHAEL BAILEY sums up Norwich City’s 3-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Carrow Road with his six things learned.

As Norwich City finally put to bed their winless run in the EFL Championship and at Carrow Road, Michael Bailey dishes out his video verdict and ratings following the Canaries’ 3-1 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

Michael Bailey

So much for my career as a clairvoyant.

Nelson Oliveira

The last time I saw the young man in this picture, reeling away after scoring a goal, was at Waverley rail station in Edinburgh.


In his latest weekly column, Norwich City correspondent and Pink Un Show host Michael Bailey discusses Gary Hooper – the Sheffield Wednesday striker who sums up so much of the Canaries’ past failings.

I’ve seen the majority of Cardiff City’s home games this season and I have to say I’ve not seen a team cause them as much trouble as Norwich did in those opening 45 minutes – just how they didn’t go in at half-time winning the game by 3-0 goodness knows.

Nothing sums up the frustration around Norwich City’s Championship season better than the baffling case of Nelson Oliveira.


The financial concern brewing at Carrow Road was clear to anyone who was at last week’s AGM.


It was another sobering weekend in Norwich City’s world as they slipped to EFL Championship defeat at Cardiff – here are MICHAEL BAILEY’s six things from Wales.

Ray Wilkins may have to adopt some new tactics in his battle to get his old pals into top jobs in English football.


Tonight promises to be as tough a test for Daniel Farke and his players as they will probably face this season when they travel to the Welsh capital to face high-flying Cardiff City.


In his weekly column, Norwich City correspondent and PinkUn Show host Michael Bailey discusses the ripples left by the Canaries’ 2017 annual general meeting…

As Norwich City’s winless run in the EFL Championship continues, Michael Bailey dishes out his video verdict and ratings following the Canaries’ 1-1 draw with Alex Neil’s Preston North End at Carrow Road.

From the bizarre to wearingly predictable – Michael Bailey brings his six things learned from Norwich City’s 1-1 draw with Preston North End at Carrow Road on Saturday…

Norwich City fans – are you one of Great Britain’s lucky 26 per cent?

To say that this has been a black week for Norwich City fans would be an understatement.

Norwich City

Remember when we talked about Fortress Carrow Road?


After that win at Portman Road on October 22, Norwich City were sitting in sixth position in the Championship, confidence was sky high within the squad, supporters were starting to think of the play-offs and all was rosy in the Canaries garden.

There wasn’t much freshness to Norwich City following the international break – MICHAEL BAILEY brings his six things learned from their 1-1 draw with Barnsley at Carrow Road.

History-making goalkeeper Paul Bastock is a bit of a headline writer’s dream.

So which Norwich City will return from the international break?

We now know England will be our sole representatives in the World Cup in Russia next summer after both Northern Ireland and their neighbours the Republic of Ireland both suffered heartache in their respective play-offs.


Last Saturday’s game was slightly surreal in that City utterly dominated the first 20 minutes, created two excellent chances and then proceeded to gift the initiative as sloppy errors and unfocused defending allowed Bolton to claim a two-goal lead which had looked totally beyond them in that opening period.

In his weekly column, Norwich City correspondent and PinkUn Show host Michael Bailey talks Carrow Road, James Maddison and hair…

Like many of you after the team’s very impressive eight-game unbeaten run in the Championship, I got a little bit carried away as Norwich sat in a credible sixth position, thinking that the play-offs were a real possibility this season.


I normally dislike international breaks.
