Norwich City Club Badge

Norwich City are back in the Premier League after only one season away, but they had to do it the hard way. After finishing third in the Championship, they had to enter the play-offs. In the semi-finals, they beat local rivals Ipswich Town, and in the final they beat Middlesbrough 2-0, in front of 85,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.

Norwich fans celebrating at Wembley.It’s Norwich’s eighth season in the Premier League and they will be hoping to replicate what happened in the first ever Premier League season, in 1992/93.  Norwich finished third and this is still their best ever finish in the top division of English football.

Norwich City’s nickname is ‘The Canaries’. Many canaries were imported to Norwich because rearing these birds was a popular hobby in the area. The team also began to play in green and yellow to match the colour of the bird and since 1922 there has been a picture of a canary on the club badge.

Delia Smith is Norwich City's owner.Norwich City play their home games at Carrow Road, which has a capacity of 27,244 and have played there since 1935. Two of the most famous Norwich fans are Delia Smith and Stephen Fry. Delia Smith is a director and majority shareholder at Norwich City. She is a famous TV chef and author in the UK and has sold over 21 million cookery books. Stephen Fry, also a director at the club, is a famous comedian and actor. He has over 10 million followers on Twitter.

Norwich City’s manager is Alex Neill, and at only 34 years old he is the youngest manager in the Premier League. Norwich City is only his second job as manager, after success in Scottish football, and Canary fans will hope that he helps Norwich perform well in his debut Premier League season.

Norwich is in the East of England in a region called East Anglia. Before the Industrial Revolution, the only city that was bigger than Norwich in England was London. Norwich is a popular city for a weekend break. Apart from visiting Carrow Road for a Premier League match, Norwich has plenty of museums, a lovely cathedral and is also good for shopping.

Cameron Jerome and Bradley Johnson are key players for Norwich.In 2014/15, Norwich won promotion to the Premier League through the play-offs after finishing third in the Championship. Norwich’s top scorer was Cameron Jerome with 20 goals.  Norwich will be depending on Jerome and player of the season, Bradley Johnson, if they are to survive in the Premier League this season.

Prediction 2015/16: 16th

Key player: Bradley Johnson

Kick off, throw in, have a little scrimmage,

On the ball, City, never mind the danger,
Steady on, now's your chance,
Hurrah! We've scored a goal.
City!, City!, City!

It's always a pleasure to see Norwich city playing on the Carrow Road when all the fans are singing loud while wearing their green and yellow t-shirts. That's beautiful example of how everyone should support a football club.

A friend of mine who is often coming to Ukraine from the UK on business trips happens to be a Norwich City fan. When he is forced to stay here on the matchday, he always invites me to watch his favourite team playing. And I am impressed how he is able to bring in the atmosphere of Carrow Road here. Amazing!

The game played between Nor and Liv 4-5 is only the 4th with that result in the PL history.

I can remember the match between Liverpool and Norwich City when Liverpool won a very dramatical game in the last minute.
