Cross Alex Neil at your peril is the lesson for Norwich's Lewis Grabban

Norwich City boss Alex Neil looks ahead to Sunday's trip to Southampton in the Premier League.

Alex Neil's prowess in moulding a successful team at Norwich City was already beyond doubt, but his impressive handling of Lewis Grabban's incendiary Capital One Cup no show embellishes a soaring reputation.

Neil has handled the fallout from Grabban's no-show at Rotherham while trying to prepare for Sunday's Premier League trip to a Southampton bruised from their tame Europa League exit and striving to attract the bodies he wants in the final throes of the transfer window.

Grabban bailed without...

Norwich denied by Jack Butland but Alex Neil desperately needs a striker

Norwich boss Alex Neil says his men were the better side during their 1-1 draw with Stoke.

For all Jack Butland's defiance as Stoke's last line of defence, Alex Neil had to face an uncomfortable line of questioning after Norwich City's pulsating 1-1 Premier League draw at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The Canaries pounded away for most of the second half, defying the intolerable heat and an expensively assembled Stoke line up, but were unable to find a way past the inspired Butland, who was beaten just once by Russell Martin after Mame Biram Diouf's opener.

Xherdan Shaqiri set for Stoke debut as Norwich plan to ruin his big day

Norwich will not be taken lightly by Stoke this weekend, according to boss Mark Hughes.

Alex Neil aims to establish Norwich City as a genuine Premier League entity and Stoke's enviable evolution shows it is possible to buck the trend ahead of this weekend's Carrow Road meeting.

The Potters are embarking on an eighth consecutive top flight campaign. That is a remarkable feat in itself but under Mark Hughes' guidance, Stoke appear to be attempting a radical policy shift.

Xherdan Shaqiri -- the "Alpine Messi," he of Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and now deepest Staffordshire is poised for...

Norwich City profit from Sunderland's misery

Norwich playmaker Wes Hoolahan turned in a masterclass as Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat witnessed another horror show.
In a postmatch press conference, Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat says there is no logical reason for his team's failure to produce on the pitch other than that they do not play like a team.

For those who pegged Norwich City as sacrificial lambs in the Premier League, they served due notice at the Stadium of Light that they are good enough to survive.

Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat's expression at the final whistle following his side's 3-1 defeat said it all. Goals from Russell Martin, Steven Whittaker and Nathan Redmond were a minimum return for the Canaries' dominance before Duncan Watmore's late consolation. Advocaat chose his words carefully in a diplomatic postmatch press briefing,...

Norwich boss Alex Neil cool and calm as Canaries plot Sunderland win

Norwich boss Alex Neil believes the referee cost his side in their opening defeat to Crystal Palace.

Alex Neil exuded confidence ahead of Norwich City's Premier League trip to Sunderland, which offers a chance for redemption after the frustrations of an opening day loss against Crystal Palace.

The Canaries were undone by their own profligacy in front of goal and a degree of naivety in the opposition penalty area during a 3-1 defeat that was compounded by an erratic display from referee Simon Hooper.

Alex Neil and Norwich learn harsh Premier League lessons against Palace

Alex Neil was left to rue refereeing decisions as Norwich lost on the opening day of the season.

Norwich City's ambition and spirit of adventure was admirable but their naivety proved their downfall, despite the controversy around Cameron Jerome's disallowed goal in a 3-1 opening day Premier League defeat to Crystal Palace.

Jerome's acrobatic overhead kick from close range was deemed dangerous play by referee Simon Hooper, who appeared intent on marking his top flight bow in dramatic fashion at Carrow Road.

Eagles boss Alan Pardew was suitably sympathetic towards his opposite number, Alex Neil,...
