What is the smartest and the silliest, the most telling and the most hilarious quote in the history of Norwich City?
Decades of drama have produced millions of words of wit, wisdom, fury and folly from a range of great characters including players, managers, directors, supporters, journalists, commentators and celebrities.
Perfectly positioned for more than 30 years on the sports desk of local Norfolk newspapers, longtime Eastern Daily Press Canaries correspondent and Norwich Evening News sports editor David Cuffley has amassed a wonderful collection of Canaries soundbytes which, all together, tell the story of the club. Talk of the City – A History of Norwich City in 1000 Quotes is out now!
David rates among his very favourites chairman Geoffrey Watling’s “If you fail the medical we’ll sack the doctor” – this to new signing Ron Davies in September 1963.
Or elsewhere on the chairman front, how about: “If Chris Sutton is not here at the start of next season, neither will I be.” This courtesy of Robert Chase, who promptly sold Sutton for £5m in 1994, but stayed in office for two more years!
Here’s a few more crackers to top up Canaries fans with pub/watercooler ammo. If you like these, rest assured there’s another 994 quotable moments of similar stature in the unmissable book.
