Make sure you grab you copy of Saturday’s OTBC, which features an exclusive interview with Marco Stiepermann.
City’s attacking midfielder talks about the challenges of Premier League football, settling at Norwich City, the game against Aston Villa and his hopes for the season.
There’s an interview with former Canaries forward Malcolm Allen, who picks his top threes from his illustrious career, and a chat with City legend John Polston, who looks back at his memorable winner against Villa in a top-of-the-table Premier League clash in 1993.
Plus there’s all the brilliant regular features, an eye-catching cover of current heroes in iconic kits, Eastern Daily Press editor David Powles picks his Fantasy Dinner Party and there are columns from Daniel Farke, Steve Weaver, Chris Goreham and Guardian writer Nick Miller.
