For better or worse, the Canaries’ performance over the past decade or so is the definition of a “yo-yo” team. They’ve been in and out of the Premier League 3 times since their promotion from League One in 2010. This matters for a few reasons.
First of all, it’s clear that they boast one of the best squads in the Championship. Though they have their ups and downs, the Yellows won the competition in 2018/19.
The following stint in the Premier League may have been short, but they got there either way. The EFL Championship betting odds confirm all of this. At odds of 2.25 for Promotion, they’ll be the hard favourites in almost every matchup England’s second-flight can throw at them.
Moreover, top online sportsbooks price Norwich City’s victory at the end at just 5.5. This makes them the second-highest-rated team after Bournemouth.
Norwich Key Players
If we’re talking about important members of the Yellow squad, the first name that’ll come up in any conversation is Max Aaron.
The wunderkind from Hammersmith has won the title of being the best young player in both the Championship and the Premier League. Young stars are actually this club’s main breadwinners – Todd Cantwell is another recent arrival with just 22 years and an incredible performance so far.
However, leaky defences continue to plague the Norwich side, despite several offensive powerhouses on the lineup.
Though it was to be expected in last season’s disastrous Premier League campaign, they conceded more than 50 goals when they won the Championship as well. With their most successful backs Ben Godfrey and Jamal Lewis now in Everton and Newcastle, it’s questionable who will hold down the backline. Looking at the lineup with players like Oliver Skipp joining as replacements, it loos like Norwich’s block will move deeper into the pitch.
As a club that’s been in and out of the Premier League for three times during the last ten years, Norwich City is not exactly a side with well-pronounced rivalries with top-tier teams. The Canaries do, however, hold a fierce rivalry with Ipswich Town, a team currently fighting in League One.
Matches between these two clubs are usually referred to as the East Anglian derby, which basically sees the only fully professional teams from Norfolk and Suffolk lock horns in a battle. This derby is also humorously called the Old Firm Derby. The name comes as a reference to the matches played between Celtic and Rangers. This match – without any humour now – has been described as the second-fiercest rivalry in England.
Norwich City are now the ‘Pride of Anglia’ as the only club from this part of the country fighting in the elite echelon. As far as the 2019/20 campaign goes, all Norwich’s matches will be as big as derbies, given that club will face a war of a season in an effort to stay up.
The Canaries officially spread their wings in 1902, playing their matches in the Norfolk & Suffolk League. Norwich City had fast-tracked their way into the professional waters moving into the Southern League in 1905. The First World War caused this up-and-coming club to go into voluntary liquidation, returning back to business in 1919. Norwich City enjoyed great crowds since the very beginnings and as the club popularity continued to rise, the owners decided to move the club to Carrow Road in 1935. The rest is history as Canaries still their play their home games at this 30,000-seater.
Norwich City is a club of moderate success. However, as the major representatives of their region, the Canaries boast quite a record. Norwich City are a four-time tier two winner. They also won the League Cup on two instances – in 1962 and 1985, while also finishing second in 1973 and 1975.
