Why: He is a talented spanish left-back and he is transfer listed which gives me more chances to sign him. Tierney might be leaving and Garrido has 6 months on his loan left.

David Ospina
Why: He is available on a free transfer and I will have three PL quality goalkeepers!

Vladimir Weiss
Why: He is a confirmed Norwich player in the 2013-2014 season as he signs for free in his second spell in England. Before: (Manchester City)

Marcelo Estigarribia
Why: He is available on a free and he is better than both my wingers and for free, I can't turend that down.

Neal Eardley
Why: He is available on a free and I need a right back for next season. Should I buy him now, or wait until he is a free agent? Feedback on this A.S.A.P.!
if you can afford eardley the now id just sign him, if u need a rb makes sense to get 1 lol ;p

David Ospina inks a new deal at Nice to dismiss Norwich move according to

On a private press conference, David Ospina talked exclusively about the reasons why he inked a new deal at Nice.

DO - David Ospina
RS - Raphaël Scott

RS: Rumours all over England said that you were on the verge of joining Norwich, why make a u-turn and renew your contract?

DO: I was close to sign with Norwich, but I saw that they had 2 great keepers and I didn't see a place in the team.

RS: If you are able to join Norwich as a first team player, would you do it?

DO: Of course! Norwich is a great team and the manager as well! The league results are all because of him. Who wouldn't like to be a first team player in any team?

RS: Thanks for the interview David, see you around.

DO: No problem, see you around Raphaël.
@Mark I scouted him and Blackpool wanted at least 3 million pounds! What are they high on right?
Disappointing result in regards to the whole Ospina saga. He is a great keeper to have as back up. Hope the other signings come big for you. Good luck.

Pauker interested in Destro according to

JP - Jeremy Pauker
MK - Mark Kolatowicz

MK: Rumors are linking you with Mattia Destro, a player owned by two clubs, Genoa CFC and Roma. Is this true?

JP: Yes, I mean who wouldn't be interested in a player like Destro? With Morison leaving we will try our best at signing him.

MK: Steve Morison is leaving?

JP: Oops.

MK: Back to the issue, will you sign him in this window or wait until he is a free agent in the summer?

JP: *Storms Out*

Norwich striker Steve Morison is being transferred to an unknown PL club.
Lol :D

Ex-Milan player Didac signed a 3 year deal with Norwich City F.C.

Steve Morison leaves Norwich City F.C. for Fulham F.C. on a reported fee of 3 million pounds.


Mattia Destro
Why: He is on a free and will be my striker if he signs for me next season

Daniel Pacheco
Why: Develops into a good poacher (recommended by James) you might know him for his famous Liverpool story.

Marcelo Estigarribia
Why: He is better than my two wingers according to my scout and he is on a free.

Neal Eardley
Why: Right-Back needed. Period.
Monthly Report #1 (January): First, we host Manchester United at Carrow Road. Last time United played at Carrow Road they lost 2-0 , but won 1-0 early in the season at the Theatre of Dreams. Starting this match wasn't good, as Ruddy conceded an easy re bound for Nani to tap it in. Then, Hoolahan scored an incisive finish inside the penalty box three minutes later, and Morison scored what proved to be the winner right before halftime. Great match at Carrow Road! Since I had a hardtime against Cheltenham, I will play this match, but with my subs. I am proud of my subs, as they won this match. A fantastic effort from Bennett made a huge relief for me and then Howson scored a really good goal. Great playing guys! Norwich draw West Ham United in the FA Cup Fourth Round at Bolelyn Ground. You knew that Snodgrass wasn't playing because my team lacked in the right wing. Snodgrass, Norwich misses you!

Norwich vs Manchester United
21' Nani
24' Wes Hoolahan
45' Steve Morison
FT: 2-1

Norwich vs Northampton
64' Robert Snodgrass (Injury)
70' Elliot Bennett

Southampton vs Norwich
54' Jay Rodriguez
FT: 1-0

Norwich City announce that they will be signing Marcelo Estigarribia when his current contract with Sampdoria expires.
Monthly Report #2 (January): We received Swansea at Carrow Road. With Snodgrass injured and having 2-3 centre-backs (Bassong on Africa Cup) worries me. Though putting Hoolahan on the right wing helped me because he crossed all the way to Pilkington who made a pass to Holt who scored an amazing goal. After a bad clearance of Ruddy, Ki Sung Yung took a shot, and scored. On the 39th minute, Michu scored an okay goal. I was doubting Holt could hold my strikers for another 6 months due to the situation I sold Morison to Fulham. He silenced my doubts and scored a freak goal from 30 metres outside the penalty box to equalize at half-time. Pablo Hernandez scored a goal, in my opinion was offside, but wasn't ruled out. Two matches and two losses. This hurts. I really don't want to talk about the Arsenal match, which we lost because of a penalty. A PENALTY! A very frustrating match against West ham, in which Vaz Te scored an error from Tierney. Harry Kane took his opportunity and seized it for the equalizer. This month sucked. 3/15 points which kinda sucks! Plus, we drew West Ham and cost us the players being tired against other fixtures. Transfer Update soon.

Norwich Player of the Month:
Grant Holt
Why: He still keeps banging the goals. This season he has 12 goals in 24 appearances. AWESOME!

Norwich Young Player of the Month
Harry Kane
Why: He saved my arse against West Ham and gives us a chance to progress the F.A. CUP.
Story has been great so far, keep it up!
Vladimir Weiss has always been classy for me, great score.

Do not try and sign Ravel Morrison though, he sounds like (on my game at least) he could be no end of trouble.
