My bags were packed with (hopefully) everything I'll need to keep me going: toothbrush, toothpaste, neck pillow, leggings, socks and battery packs. Lots of battery packs.

It’s easy to get to, and leave from. It sounds funny including this at the head of my list, but Stuttgart’s relative centrality and excellent transport links make it an ideal base for travellers to venture elsewhere from - or even stay for a prolonged period. Manfred Rommel Airport (named after the former mayor of Stuttgart and, yes, Erwin’s son) flies to … [Read more...] about Weekend Wanderlust: 10 reasons to love Stuttgart

Pictures: Paul Chesterton/Focus Images Paul Chesterton There was so much going on it blew a fuse... Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey dishes out his six things learned from the Canaries’ 2018 send-off and Derby defeat. 1 – It’s been a top-three of a 2018 Yes, I’m starting with a positive. Having dared predict nothing more than some sort of improvement in the summer, it’s fitting.The 2018 Championship calendar table – also 46 games – sees Norwich City finish third with 77 points and a positive goal-difference from 1.67 points per game (PPG), behind Aston Villa (79) and Middlesbrough (80).
