The latest issue of our matchday programme OTBC features a big interview with Christoph Zimmermann and a series of special 25th anniversary features looking back at City’s remarkable 1992-93 season.
With local football art studio Patterns of Play producing our bespoke covers this season, Mark Robins celebrating one of his two debut goals in the famous 4-2 win at Highbury on August 15, 1992 was the fitting choice.
The new-look OTBC has a host of new features this season, including a look at every Barry Butler winner, Heroes and Villains, The Ten, Family Trees, Around the Grounds and an extended and revamped Academy section.
Here are some of the highlights from our QPR programme!
“It’s a good atmosphere to work in and good for development, especially for the younger guys.”
The Big Interview: City’s new centre-back Christoph Zimmermann on adapting to the English game and City’s start to the season
“Two down at half-time, and we were shell-shocked because it could have been six.”
Arsenal 2-4 Norwich: Edward Couzens-Lake speaks to those involved in of our most famous wins
“Goss never stopped running, tracking, tackling; the kind of man who would run into a burning house, save the kids, put the fire out, rebuild the home and have Grand Designs come round to film it.”
Special feature: Dan Brigham on the story of the 1992-93 season
“Flowing football, with skill, with people not frightened to express themselves. And with good organisation. That’s what I like… I’d happily win 4-3 all season. You get three points for 4-3, and only one for nil-nil.”
The Ten… 92-93 moments: Mike Walker on his football philosophy
“I’ve really enjoyed being here so far and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future brings.”
Interview: New signing Adam Phillips on joining up with City’s Under-23s
“Norwich City and QPR have much in common. Our two clubs have decided to take a much more rounded view of how the Football League has changed over the past 25 seasons by having a go in three of the four divisions”
Chris Goreham: BBC Radio Norfolk’s commentator’s column
“We can make an impact: we can influence what happens on the Carrow Road pitch.”
Fan column: Gary Gowers on making your voice heard
“Results, performances, league position, form and football in total took a back seat as Carrow Road saluted a true hero.”
Heroes and villains: Peter Rogers on Bryan Gunn
“An afternoon of sports games included ‘climbing greasy pole for leg of mutton’ and ‘jumping for buns and treacle’.”
Around the Grounds: Ffion Thomas continues her tour of Norfolk clubs with a visit to Gorleston
“There are few sights in football that fans love more than a burly centre-forward at the height of their powers.”
Fifty Years of Barry Butler: Zoë Whitford continues her profiles of every Barry Butler winner, with a look at Iwan Roberts and Joe Royle
