Norwich City are a Premier League football club based in East Anglia and formed in 1902. Their nick and is the Canaries because of their yellow and green home kits. They play their home games at Carrow Road, a Stadium which holds 28,000 fans.
In terms of past players, one their greats is Bryan Gunn, a former goalkeeper who played between 1986 and 1998, before taking over as manager briefly and unsuccessfully in 2009. A year earlier, the fans gave their choice of the greatest XI in their history, and it includes Newcastle manager Steve Bruce, who went on to have much more success in his career at Manchester United, Chris Sutton, who most famously won the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers in 1995 and a more recent Premier League star in Darren Huckerby. Now Ipswich boss Paul Lambert, who replaced Gunn in the dugout, guided them to back-to-back promotions, and his main striker Grant Holt, deserve a lot of credit for their roles too.
Goalkeepers: Tim Krul, Ralph Fahrmann, Michael McGovern

Norwich City came up to the Premier League last season against all odds. They weren’t top of many people’s predicted Championship tables at the start of last season and they didn’t start in a manner that suggested they would be moving up a division this year. But Daniel Farke’s patient work paid off in the end; they were extremely consistent and played a very attractive and entertaining brand of football, led by Teemu Pukki, the top scorer in the division last season. Though they have strengthened relatively well over the summer, and Farke is impressive enough tactically to thrive at this level, they’ll need the Finnish striker to impress too. Max Aarons, their right back, who interested Manchester United earlier in the transfer window, also has a big future.
Previously, Norwich have been something of a yo-yo club, unable to keep their head above water. The reality is, while this is probably their best chance of surviving in a long time, they’ll have it tough. It is tough to see them staying up, truth be told.
