Welcome to Along Come Norwich, a new Norwich City fansite dedicated to bringing you (mostly) considered opinion on all things yellow and green.
Created by Andrew Lawn, Duncan Edwards and Jon Punt, we aim to provide you with a sideways look at our club. Rather than the latest news, we hope to be a features supplement, for example rather than announcing the fixture list, we'll explain why the order of the fixtures matters. We'll even use graphs.
As well as regular articles from ourselves, we will also have some gorgeous imagery from the super-talented Ben Stokes, the latest chants from Barclay End Projekt co-founder and resident capo Neil Thomson, match and signing ratings from long-term, rug-over-the-knee-with-a-nice-flask-of-tea Riverender and serial film reviewer James Chaplin, some semblance of professional journalism from Tom Haylett and unique takes on the life of a football fan from some handpicked guest contributors.
Other sites already cover match reports, previews and interviews better than we could. Instead we want to focus on the wider, social aspect of being a Norwich fan.
We also wanted to see if we could do better than Alex Neil, via the medium of Football Manager. You can compare and contrast our progress game by game.
We won't be circulating the latest bullshit transfer news regurgitated by those #ITK accounts we all loathe. If you’re after that kind of thing we’d recommend you go elsewhere. Once a player is signed however we'll be try to be the first to tell you a little more about who he is and what he can (or can't) do.
We’re all long suffering fans who’ve held season tickets for decades. While that doesn’t make our opinion any more valid than others, we’d like to think we’ve been there through the very best, and the very darkest, of Canary days.
It is our intention to regularly feature other writers, who won’t always be Norwich fans, to provide their own unique take on events. If you feel like you’d like to contribute we’re always happy to hear from people, you can contact us via @alongcomenodge or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Never mind the danger...
