Norwich pay price

Norwich City
 By Paddy Davitt

Robbie Brady is a steal for Norwich but defensive depth still an issue

Robbie Brady has looked good as a converted left-back for Norwich.

With the transfer window closed it's time to look at Norwich's ins and outs and whether Alex Neil can be pleased with his summer business.


Robbie Brady (Hull, £7million); Dieumerci Mbokani (Dynamo Kiev, season long loan with an option to buy); Graham Dorrans (West Brom, £3m); Youssouf Mulumbu (West Brom, free); Jake Kean (Blackburn, free); Andre Wisdom (Liverpool, season-long loan)


Bradley Johnson (Derby, undisclosed); Ricky van Wolfswinkel (Real Betis, season long loan); Luciano...

Manchester City lead Premier League transfer grades after brilliant summer

As the transfer window shuts, the ESPN FC panel take a look back at Arsenal and Manchester United's inability to secure a marquee signing, Chelsea's new additions, Kevin De Bruyne joining Manchester City to bolster Manuel Pellegrini's attack and much more

With the summer transfer window finally done and dusted, ESPN FC grades all 20 Premier League clubs based on how they fared in their dealings.

Manchester City - A+

Winners of the window and, consequently, now strong favourites to be winners of the title. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho spoke recently of how City "reacted" to his team winning the league in the way the London side itself did last season, but it was more than that.

This was more than a reaction. It was precise and rational business,...

Norwich City pay the Premier League price at Southampton

Premier League: Steven Whittaker Red Card 31''

Norwich City have been bold and bullish under manager Alex Neil, but the Canaries' limp 3-0 Premier League loss at Southampton was a reminder of what just it takes in the top flight.

Much of the focus will inevitably rest on Steven Whittaker's red card aberration after two bookings inside three first half minutes, which reduced the Canaries to 10 men against a rampant Saints who decided this was the day to finally get their season up and running.

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...
