good luck in the Europa League KO stages ,you're going to need it :P
Hey guys, I am just going to post the results and not describe the goals. Thanks for the 2,000 views! It's all for you guys :P
Well the West Ham loss is acceptable because it's well West Ham
A little inconsistent but you are still 4th and that win over Utd must leave you chuffed :)
Love your story. Great job beating united. :D
Your Norwich is fantastic! Wins over United, Arsenal and Liverpool :) Keep it up!
Month Report (December): 8 or 9 matches this month. Crap. We headed to Feyenoord and a win would make us finish as first place in our group. Believe me, I wanted that top spot. We drew Blackburn, which is a tough match. We beat Feyenoord after a goal from Destro. With the top spot at the group stages we headed to Southampton, and they fielded a very good team. The likes of Azpilicueta, Dragovic and Marcus Olsson were playing and I scraped a win. The win came because of the goal from Holt. After that, we hosted Blackpool and lost thanks to a brace from Taraabt and a Zaha goal. Though, Didac scored his first goal in a Norwich shirt. We headed to the Molineux and my future captain Bassong by the way was nervous. I told him that if they were racial chants, I would walk away and take the team with me from the Molineux (former loanee at Wolves). Wolves just got back to the PL and are high on the table and played a strong side. A goal from Bassong early gave us the lead, but Ebanks-Blake impressed me with a nice chip over Ruddy. (Bassong is good player and didn't celebrate :P). After the second half started, Bulot scored what looked the winner at the Molineux. Fuck. 2 losses in a row. Fucking shit! We did have to play Red Bull Salzburg and I expect a win and only a win will be accepted. Yes! Destro equalizes. Oh, didn't expect that ;)! Holt :P! Beat Salzburg at home is great and I am through the next round. Who might be the unlucky bastard who plays against me? Shit. I play Slavia Prague and then Barcelona or Standard. Fuck me right? Final time at Carrow Road against Chelsea, 3-3. Mata, Hazard and Jovetic scored the goals for Chelsea. A Estigarribia double and a Destro goal shared the points at Carrow Road. We play Everton next, at Carrow Road. Yes, yes and yes. 3-1 win for me! Two goals from Holt and a Destro one gave me a 3 goal difference, but Wayne Bridge scored the consolation goal for Everton. Fuck, I play City at the Etihad. I really don't want to talk about the result against City. Six goals conceded, when it could've been two. Ruddy, you'll be finding some competition at the GK position now. So, an average month. 23 wins, 3 losses and a draw. I must say, dissapointed with Ruddy.

Norwich Player of the Month
Grant Holt
Why: I've got to stop doing the why thingy when Holt's name is mentioned. Goals, and loads of goals. Hodgson, you are the worst manager for not picking him as your striker.

Norwich Young Player of the Month
Mattia Destro
Why: He scored tons of goals and is still improving. Great player and poacher :P. Got his first international cap for Italy already!

Breaking News
Norwich have tabled a 7.25 million pound deal for unhappy Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna.

Breaking News:
Norwich have signed Angelo Ogbonna on a reported fee of 7.25 million pounds. Ogbonna will join Norwich team-mates at the start of the January transfer window.
You should do a Norwich player of the month award and a Holt of the month award because it's becoming boring :D
Hahaha. Got you man ;). The last thing I want to give my readers is the impression of boring readers. Though, when Holt's not around anymore, the goalscorer of the team will recieve the Holt Shoe. How about that?
It's a very good idea bro ;) But I hope he remains at Norwich as long as possible :)
Month Report (January): Starting a bad month, as we drew Portsmouth and Slavia Prague. In the next knockout round, I will play Standard Liege or Barcelona. FUCK ME! We had to play Spurs away which was a tough task to do. The match ended by us losing. We lost by a difference of 2 goals which personally, I think it's good. Plus, we were away and Tottenham are the current champions. Goals from Parker and Bale were enough to see Spurs rise above us, but Holt scored one to not embarrass us by a 3 goal difference. We played Blackburn in the F.A. Cup 3rd Round. I played mostly subs, because I knew that I had to play Blackpool (lost 3-1 last time). My team were mad that we dropped those points and we wanted to set the record straight. Oh and they did. FT: 5-0. You just got skool'd Blackpool *spits at the ground like a badass*. We played great, and Destro made an instant impact as a sub. Destro grabbed a brace in under 2 minutes. Then, Snodgrass, Estigarribia and Russell Martin got in the scoresheet also. Another match we had lost early in the season. Wigan. We played an amazing game, and I don't know how Al Habsi only conceded two goals. Goals were scored by Destro and Snodgrass. Oh yeah! In the F.A. Cup 4th Round, we played in-form Porstmouth (lol) with subs and Vaughan seized his chance. He scored two amazing goals and Ekdal grabbed on for himself :P. We headed to Stoke-on-trent for a match against Stoke to push for Champions League and Europa League. Yeah, I said it. Those are my goals now. We signed Barkley for 0 pounds, and Daniel Ayala heading for Everton. I am also interested in signing Kovacic, the Croatian wonderkid but he'll cost about 8.5 million. Plus, he's 17 or 19 (around the range). I will have to sell Howson at the end of the season :( because I will have Barkley, Adryan and Kovacic. We beat Stoke away, which is great because they are a tough opponent (irl too). Goals from Destro and Estigarribia gave me the three points after going down by one because of Peter Crouch. This was a really good month, with only one loss which was to one of the big four. Next month, is Europa League. Damn you, Barca! I drew Huddersfield in the F.A. Cup 5 Round. No League Table, because I am a month ahead :D :P!

Norwich Player of the Month:
Sebastien Bassong
Why: I really don't know why he didn't go to the AFCON, but I'm happy he didn't. If you compare when he was at the AFCON last year, we were on a bad streak, so thats good. Plus, with Ayala leaving and Ogbonna arriving, they will be an awesome defense. P.S. Still considering buying Ciaran Clark, but he doesn't convince me. Maybe Jason will ;)?

Norwich Young Player of the Month:
Mattia Destro
Why: He scored 4 goals this month and he is up on par with Holt! I can't believe I have 2 great strikers in my team that scores more than 10 goals per season (mid). Yay for me!
Transfer Round Up:
Signings: Angelo Ogbonna and Ross Barkley
Departures: David Fox (1m), Daniel Ayala, Kyle Callam-McFadden (loan) and James Vaughan (loan)

Signings Report
Angelo Ogbonna
Why: He was tranfer listed at 7.25 million and I believe that's a total bargain. Plus, I had my thought in my mind I wanted Turner and Ayala out. He is also a player who will be in Italy this year or maybe next year. Remember my shout out to him :P. Also, with the couple of next seasons pushing for Champions League, Ogbonna and Bassong will form a great defensive line.

Ross Barkley
Why: My brother recommended him (he's at Wigan 2018-2019) and says his initial value is 15 million and lost out on his transfer because he didn't believe in him. In real life, he's good (watch Sheff Wednesday's videos at Youtube). Plus, it was a straight player swap as I payed nothing for him because Ayala went the other way.

Departures Report:
David Fox
Why: He was getting old and eating my wages. Plus, I got 1 million where he could've gone for free.

Daniel Ayala
Why: Everton were interested since the day he got back on loan from Forrest, but they didn't have the balls to make an offer. To add, I saw Barkley was improving and offered them a straight player/exchange offer and they accepted. Sorry to see you leave Norwich buddy.

James Vaughan
Why: He is a sub at my team and he asked for a transfer. Wolves were willing to take him for loan for a lot of cash 120k per month with a future fee. Nice deal.

Kyle Callam-McFadden
Why: He is a youngster and needs some playing time other than the reserves or Norwich's U18 side. So he parted for Leyton Orient to play.
Great signings bro ;) but wtf...Holt is not player of the month.
