Norwich City supporters haven’t had much to shout about over the last Twelve months or so but have today released their new home strip for the upcoming season. The Canaries were recently relegated from the Premier League but their new home shirt has really caught the eye on social media today. The shirt is reminiscent of their home shirts in the 1980s, producing a classic yet still modern and classy look. The green pinstripes going down the top with the new crest integrated in the top right corner of the shirt makes for a really good look.
Today also marks four years since they signed Teemu Pukki from Brondby IF in Finland on a free transfer which is still one of the most remarkable pieces of recruitment in the today’s game. However, this will go under the radar because the deal wasn’t struck by one of the big sides in the country, but Pukki’s importance to Norwich City should never be underestimated, scoring 11 goals in possibly Norwich’s two worst ever Premier League seasons with very minimal service is a remarkable achievement. There has been a quote said this week from his agent that Teemu, his agent and Norwich are negotiating about a possible move away as he has a desire to play at the top level for the last years of his career instead of playing in the Championship with Norwich. I think most Norwich fans would accept Pukki leaving Norwich to play at a higher level and wouldn’t be frustrated due to all he has done for the club whilst hr has been there and may continue to be.
However, the Fin was not spotted in training this week and in the new kit reveal today, so there is some concern amongst the Canaries fan base over him, Tim Krul and many other valuable assets that Norwich possess ahead of aiming for their third Championship title in a row, and their first under new head coach Dean Smith with the beautiful new home strip revealed today.
