There will be more pages than ever and brand-new brilliant features in this season’s OTBC.
With a new-look cover featuring current stars in retro kits, the content has also been freshened up for the Premier League season. At 116 pages and just £3.50, OTBC is better than ever after winning last season’s Programme of the Year award in the EFL.
Alongside the regular looks at the opposition, an Academy section, Chris Goreham’s column and the usual big interview – in Saturday’s programme you can read our wide-ranging chat with Daniel Farke – we have also introduced several new features.
Each match a writer will pick their Fantasy Dinner Party, and former Club journalist Ben Mouncer kicks it off on Saturday. We’re also imagining how the course of history might have changed if iconic or infamous moments had turned out differently in a new series called What If? We take a guess at how NCFC’s fortunes may have changed if Bryan Gunn hadn’t broken his ankle in December 1994.
Our retro section, called 1902, has two new regular features. Former OTBC editor Peter Rogers relives 19 Great Premier League Games involving Norwich, and starts by talking to Dean Ashton about his last-minute winner against Newcastle in 2005. We also speak to former players to get their Top Threes from their career, and the first Canaries (and Magpies) legend under the microscope is Ruel Fox.
Guardian writer Nick Miller kicks off a new column about all things Premier League, and his first topic takes a look at the changes to the rules this season – from goal kicks to VAR. Finally, our inside back page will feature great goals from our history.
You can purchase your copy of OTBC from our many programme sellers on matchday – with several taking contactless payment – or you can order your copy online HERE.
