The latest OTBC features interviews with all five of City’s five January signings, and a host of other brilliant features.
Moritz Leitner, Kenny McLean, Onel Hernandez, Marcus Edwards and Dennis Srbeny were all brought into Daniel Farke’s squad in the transfer window, and they all reflect on their move to the Canaries.
We also chat to Norwich legend Daryl Sutch to get his first, best and worst moments, and we bring you our usual regular features such as Manager Files, Hits and Misses, Chris Goreham’s column and everything you need to do about Middlesbrough.
There is also another brilliant cover design from local football art studio Patterns of Play, celebrating City’s Wembley win over Boro in 2015.
