INSIDE YOUR 'OTBC'

23 September 2016

Featuring Alex Pritchard, Robert Fleck and Chris Goreham's new column

THERE is a host of exciting new content in the OTBC official matchday programme for City’s clash with Burton Albion.

While retaining many of your favourite features, there is a stronger fan presence and an even greater emphasis on good writing, photography and illustration, plus more access behind the scenes at this great club.

There is also a new editor, with Canaries fan Dan Brigham - who has worked on national sports publications for the last 15 years and helped to launch and run the popular Norwich City fan website The Little Yellow Bird Project – at the helm.

Inside today’s OTBC is…

“That’s why I’ve come here – because of where this club can go. It’s been in the Premier League before; the manager’s done it before; these players have done it before”
Cover star Alex Pritchard gives his first big interview to OTBC

“It was made much worse by the fact Steve Bruce nutmegged me! I didn’t know what to do with myself and I was laughing my head off. I was so embarrassed, so I ended up doing sit-ups on the pitch”
Norwich great Robert Fleck answers questions about his first, best and worst moment in his career

“I now find it impossible to see the number 14 without thinking about Wes Hoolahan, have an urge to shout about Jonny Howson every time the number 8 appears and when I put two and two together I get Graham Dorrans”
Radio Norfolk’s Chris Goreham kicks off his regular back-page column with his thoughts on the commentators’ curious relationship with numbers

“The elephants’ goalkeeper scored two own goals in the challenge match to hand Norwich victory”
The Manager Files: We look back at the most significant events under Norwich’s first professional manager John Bowman

“He could tackle, he could pass, he was tough as nails and he could bring the ball out of the back way better than Mark Wright ever did for England during Italia ’90”
My Favourite Player: BBC 6Music producer Gary Bales on Ian Culverhouse

“Four years after his father had remarkably guided Nottingham Forest to two successive European Cup trophies, Nigel Clough made his debut for the club on Boxing Day 1984 – but not before he had finished his A levels”
The Guardian’s Nick Miller profiles Burton manager Nigel Clough

“It’s oddly thrilling to have a game where previews can’t be based solely on head-to-head records or what’s happened previously. The very best bit about having a clean slate is not the lack of history, but the prospect of making it”
Fan column: Zoë Whitford on playing a team for the very first time
