The star performers
Teemu Pukki, the striker from Finland garnered a lot of praise because of his goal-scoring prowess. With 29 goals in the 2018-19 Championship season, the Finnish striker spearheaded the club’s forward line almost single-handedly.
Now, he will have a much bigger role to play. Traditionally, the Canaries have lacked a forward who has the ability to score frequently (a spearhead of sorts). Now that Pukki has finally found his mojo, the club’s management can afford to hope that the team would perform well in this year’s Premier League.

Carrow Road Stadium was constructed in 82 days. Wow, that’s quick, isn’t it? The construction in the summer of 1935. Before this, the club played at a local ground called ‘The Nest’. The Nest lacked the capacity to accommodate a large number of people. Therefore, the club had to shift its base.
The club developed an instant liking for the venue and defeated West Ham in the first match that was hosted by the Carrow Road Stadium.
Initially, the stadium had just one covered stand while the remaining three sides were open. The ground has undergone renovation on quite a few occasions in order to increase the stadium’s seating capacity.
Only a few changes were made up until the 1960s. Open terraces in the stadium were covered in order to provide the spectators with a safer viewing environment. Carrow Road accommodated more than 40,000 spectators in 1963 during a match between Norwich City FC and Liecester City FC.
