Founded in 1902 Norwich City may lack the glamour of some of the big London clubs, but the Canaries have an incredibly loyal following. They joined the new Third Division in 1920 and in 1935 moved to their current home, Carrow Road. It wasn't until the 1971-72 season that promotion to the First Division was achieved, quickly followed by two losing Wembley appearances in League Cup Finals against Spurs and Aston Villa. In 1985 they finally won the trophy, beating Sunderland 1-0. Both clubs were relegated at the end of the season. Norwich bounced back immediately and went on to achieve their highest placing’s in their league history. This book celebrates the history of an iconic club – a club that even their opponents have a sneaking respect for – unless they come from Ipswich. When Football Was Football – Norwich City explores the club's colourful history and tells the story of some of their legendary stars and managers.
