NORWICH, England -- Three points from Norwich and Chelsea's 0-0 draw in their FA Cup third-round clash at Carrow Road. 1. Chelsea taken to replay in bore draw This was the outcome nobody wanted and on an afternoon nobody will hark back to in a hurry.

Rafa Benitez and Newcastle hope to emerge from Championship chaos

Thu, 4 Aug 2016 12:24:00 PDT

This time last year, Rafael Benitez was preparing his Real Madrid side, featuring Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, for a season of challenging for the Champions League and La Liga. Just 12 months on and trips to Burton and Rotherham that consume Benitez's thoughts, as he readies Newcastle for the hard, relentless slog that is the Championship. It's not just the presence of Benitez that has made Newcastle the clearest favourites for promotion in years, but more the way the club has gone about its...

Norwich's funky new third shirt causes a stir after its release

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 02:15:00 PDT

Norwich have released their new third kit and to say that it's caused a bit of a stir is something of an understatement. Intended as an homage to the Canaries' 1992-94 home kit, the new blotchy white third strip definitely has an air of the "hospital shower curtain" about it. The look on Steven Naismith's face sums it up quite well ... Inspired by history. The 2016-17 @ErreaOfficial Third Kit. Available now: - Norwich City FC (@NorwichCityFC)...

Norwich City and Alex Neil's agony at Premier League relegation

With the season over, it's time to assess Norwich's 2015-16. Here's a look back on a hugely disappointing season. Season in a sentence So much early promise following promotion to the Premier League was replaced by a painful crash landing back in the Championship. Highlight Manchester United might be a long way short of the dominating force from Sir Alex Ferguson's Premier League vintage but Norwich City's 2-1 away win at Old Trafford in December was still a major milestone. City had not won at...

It was another memorable Premier League campaign. Our ESPN FC bloggers take a quick look at how their team fared in the 2015-16 season. LEICESTER: Leicester ended 2015-16 with a fairytale Premier League title, the PFA player of the year, a Premier League scoring record and Champions League football -- so not bad, then! -- Ben Jacobs ARSENAL: Not good enough to sustain a title challenge but not bad enough to drop out of the top four -- stop me if you think you've heard this one before. -- 

Norwich bow out with a whimper following defeat at Everton

Sun, 15 May 2016 10:24:00 PDT

Norwich were second best as they lost their final Premier League match of the season. Norwich City went out with a whimper, losing 3-0 on Sunday in an instantly forgettable Premier League finale at Everton. The Canaries slumped to defeat that was entirely predictable once James McCarthy had thumped the Toffees in front. Leighton Baines rolled home a cool penalty before the interval and the match was over as a meaningful contest when Kevin Mirallas was left unmarked at the far post three minutes after the restart. For Norwich, it is less about what happened on the pitch at Goodison...

Swansea to beat Man City, United to edge Bournemouth? Spurs to draw?

Fri, 13 May 2016 04:51:00 PDT

What a Premier League season 2015-16 has been. Champions Leicester will get a guard of honour at Stamford Bridge, but the game means little in the general context of everything given Chelsea have put in the worst title defence in living memory. In fact, with Aston Villa, Newcastle and Norwich all already relegated, there is just the European spots to play for. Manchester United need to beat Bournemouth and hope that Man City lose if they are to make the Champions League playoffs, while West Ham,...

Dieumerci Mbokani and Nathan Redmond give Norwich reason to smile

Wed, 11 May 2016 08:29:00 PDT

Norwich City went down fighting but that only made Premier League relegation harder to digest after a 4-2 win over Watford. The Canaries' fate was sealed by Sunderland's 3-0 victory over Everton in the northeast but, in truth, Norwich will look back at some missed opportunities this season when the post-mortem begins in earnest. Nathan Redmond was unplayable at times, hauling his side back on level terms after Troy Deeney's opener, before Dieumerci Mbokani and Craig Cathcart's own goal eased City...

Norwich strive to wave goodbye to the Premier League on a happy note

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:08:00 PDT

Joy will be in short supply when relegated Norwich City visit managerless Everton in Sunday's Premier League finale. One suspects that, for both clubs, there will be a sense of relief that a season which contained so much promise but ended in misery, is over. Norwich's return to the Championship was confirmed in midweek despite a stirring 4-2 win against Watford after Sunderland brushed aside a disinterested Everton 3-0 at the Stadium of Light in Roberto Martinez's final game before he was sacked. Few,...

Norwich suffer defeat to United as Premier League relegation looms

Sat, 7 May 2016 09:48:00 PDT

Sebastien Bassong's error led to a damaging Norwich City defeat to Manchester United on Saturday. Given Norwich City have made a habit of squandering opportunities to advance it came as no surprise they tamely folded in a damaging 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday. City could have hauled themselves out of the bottom three and turned up the heat on relegation rivals Sunderland and Newcastle, with a win at Carrow Road. Instead Juan Mata's 72nd minute strike, coupled with Sunderland's comeback 3-2 win against Chelsea, means they will be relegated next Wednesday if the Black Cats win at...

Norwich need Manchester United double to spark survival bid

Fri, 6 May 2016 01:52:00 PDT

Norwich stunned Manchester United during a troubled winter for Louis van Gaal's men. Norwich City's 2-1 Premier League win at Manchester United in December was portrayed as a landmark victory at the time. Completing a notable double at Carrow Road on Saturday to boost their survival hopes would eclipse it. The scale of the celebrations on the final whistle following that Old Trafford win, after Cameron Jerome and Alex Tettey had secured the Canaries' first success at the Theatre of Dreams since 1989, underlined just how rare it is for clubs of Norwich's stature to prevail against...
