The chirping canary — Norwich City FC newsletter

As City prep for a promotion campaign to sneak back into the English Premier League, we bring you a few stories with all content you need to stay informed — and ahead.

Let’s be ‘avin’ you

Miss the weekend clash with Nottingham Forest? Well, you missed the match of the season. Norwich pummeled the visitors 5-1 to pick up another massive three points, now two points off the two point a play-off spot. Here’s Paddy Davitt’s review of the match, via The Pink Un.

Goal(s) of the season

Less than a dozen minutes into the match midfielder Jonny Howson scored the goal of the season — and arguably the best goal in Carrow Road history. The Yorkshire man volleyed a headed clearance into the top corner with style.

Match highlights

Obviously Howson’s goal was a stunner, but what about the others? Wes Hoolahan followed up with his best goal this campaign, while Josh Murphy added another and Alex Pritchard bagged a brace. You be the judge of your favorite goal with Saturday’s match highlights.
