Manager Alex Neil confirmed members of the club have been fighting off the flu this week as the Norwich City midfield has taken the hardest hit.
Midfielders Robbie Brady and Graham Dorrans missed the midweek match against Tottenham due to illness and Neil said that Dorrans will also miss the weekend clash with Aston Villa. However, the manager said he was hopeful that Brady will recover in time for a critical match between relegation candidates as Alexander Tettey will also be absent for the next two games after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season on Tuesday. Martin Olsson filled in for Brady at left-back, but it's a bit of a toss-up this weekend on who will start. It looks best to stay away from the pair as Norwich's defense has been in flux since adding some new faces during the transfer window. Feb 5 - 8:58 AM

Alex Neil will be disappointed to lose the points in the final minute, but very satisfied at another good away performance…

It is a mark of Norwich’s early season progress that they left the pitch gutted at not having won. It is still just the one defeat on the road since manager Alex Neil took over and that is a very useful habit to have in the PL. Norwich’s counter-attacking style suits away days and Neil is rotated his team set-up cannily. Hand-picking player-maker Wes Hoolahan’s matches has so far been perfectly executed, resulting in five of the team’s 11 goals being created or scored by the 33-year-old. He is not the only star of Norwich’s midfield though. Robbie Brady was the star turn this weekend, with Nathan Redmond again excellent (and scoring). All three are still available to PL.com managers for well under £6m and that looks good value from here. There are darker periods to come as the season progresses, but right now the Canaries are flying high.

Norwich have finally secured the signing of Hull winger Robbie Brady, with a medical set to take place in the next 48-hrs…

The long-running Robbie Brady saga – which seems to have ran as long as the Brady Bunch did – has finally come to a successful conclusion. With Norwich and Hull agreeing a fee thought to be around £7m for the winger. The player has agreed terms and will undergo a medical this week. Relations have been strained between the clubs, with Hull boss Steve Bruce labelling bids of £2.5m and £3m as ‘embarrassing’ and ‘insulting’. Hull haven’t budged from their initial £7m valuation for 23-year-old Republic of Ireland international they signed from Manchester United and went on to play over 100 matches for the club. Norwich will be relieved they have finally made a high-profile signing after a frustrating summer and are still in the market for a center-forward, at least.

Robbie Brady has turned down a new contract at Hull City and the proposed move to Norwich City looks imminent…

Norwich’s drawn out pursuit of Hull winger Robbie Brady could have entered the final straight, with the Republic of Ireland international turning down the offer of an improved deal to stay at the Championship club. Even Hull boss Steve Bruce has admitted defeat, acknowledging that the lure of the PL is too strong. ‘I have done everything I can. He’s had two seasons in the top flight and wants to carry on. Simple as that.’ So now it comes down to price. Bruce wants £9 million and labelled Norwich’s opening bids of £2m, £2.5m and £3m ‘ridiculous and embarrassing’. But with the season inching closer and only two new faces added so far, the Canaries are ready to talk turkey and a compromise of around £7m is expected to be reached.

Norwich have been put off a move for Robbie Brady by Hull’s £7 million asking price…

The proposed transfer of Robbie Brady to Norwich has hit the buffers because Hull are demanding too much money for the winger. Norwich boss Alex Neil has identified the Republic of Ireland international as key to his plans on their return to the PL, but value Brady at £4.5 million. Hull want £7 million for the former Manchester United man who spent two years on loan at the club before making the move permanent in January 2013. He was a regular last season, playing 34 times and will add PL experience but if a compromise cannot be made Norwich will turn their attention elsewhere. QPR winger Matt Phillips was a player of interest, but he looks on the verge of a move to West Brom so Norwich could be left frustrated.

Norwich have targeted Hull’s Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady as their number one target after losing out on Luke Garbutt…

Norwich have reportedly made a £2 million offer for Robbie Brady, after primary target Luke Garbutt committed to a five-year deal with Everton (and will spend next season on loan at Bournemouth). The 23-year-old left-footer who can operate as a winger or at left-back came through the ranks and Manchester United but has spent the last four seasons at Hull, the first two on loan. The chance to stay in the PL will naturally appeal and current boss Steve Bruce has made it clear he expects players to leave and will not stand in their way. Saying, ‘We are going to lose players because PL clubs will want them. That is the big thing we have to deal with.’ So it just seems a question of price, with £2 million the Canaries’ opening gambit.

Norwich are rumored to be preparing a bid for Hull City left back/left midfielder Robbie Brady as they prepare for life in the Premier League.

Brady played well for Hull City in a variety of roles at the Premier League level over the past two seasons. He started out as a dedicated winger who was very dangerous early in the 2013-14 season. An injury stalled his momentum that season but a move to more of a wing-back role during the 2014-15 season saw him string together a strong run of starts to close out the season. He would be a fine starter and/or utility player for a newly-promoted club to bring on as Hull City are likely looking to shed some salary.

Robbie Brady was tantalizingly close to goal twice on Saturday but Hull City couldn't score and dropped a 1-0 decision to now-relegated Burnley.

The result was no good for either side as Burnley were relegated by virtue of Leicester City's win over Southampton while Hull City were dragged into the relegation zone with the combination of their loss, Newcastle's draw with West Brom, and Sunderland's win over Everton. Steve Bruce resisted the urge to start Nikica Jelavic who is coming off an injury but there just weren't enough chances and now Hull City head into their final two matches at White Hart Lane and against Manchester United at the KC Stadium needing points from strong opposition.

Robbie Brady continues to shine in a more defensive role as a two-way threat in consecutive Hull City wins.

Robbie Brady isn't getting clean sheet points in most formats despite the fact that he is playing more as a left back than he is a left midfielder these days. Despite not getting clean sheet points for Hull City's two clean sheet wins in Week 34, Brady produced for fantasy managers with nine successful crosses, five tackles won, four passes intercepted, an assist, a shot on target, and two corners won over the two matches. Imagine how valuable he'll be next season if/when he is reclassified as a defender (assuming Andrew Robertson doesn't win that spot back after a summer of building himself up to survive the Premier League).

Steve Bruce revealed post-match on Saturday that Robbie Brady suffered a "horrible calf injury" in training which could sideline the midfielder [come defender] for "weeks or maybe months."

The news of his absence will come as a massive blow to the Tigers as Brady has been in great form and this latest setback effectively rules the player out of a number of crucial games against teams around them at the bottom including Sunderland and Leicester City. Bruce was also forced into two other changes prior to the loss at the Britannia as the boss decided not to risk top scorer Nikica Jelavic – the striker is managing an ongoing knee complaint and cannot play two games in quick succession though he should be available on Tuesday. The in-form Dame N’Doye was also restricted to a place on the bench after spending most of last week travelling to Russia presumably tying up loose ends following his last-minute move during the January window.

Robbie Brady has had an up and down season from a fantasy point of view and he was "up" again in Week 26.

Brady has seen just about everything this season. Strong form. Poor form. Position change. Injury. Playing predominantly as a left back these days, Brady's fantasy production has been lackluster in recent weeks. Week 26 saw a return to previously strong efforts but before anyone reads too much into it, his elevated production was due mostly to an assist. Unless he becomes an assist machine of Fabregas proportions this level of production isn't sustainable.

Robbie Brady's fantasy output has been going in the right direction over the past two match weeks after some poor showings.

Brady gave a solid two-way performance in the final week of 2014 with four interceptions and four successful crosses in the 1-0 loss to Leicester City. With rumblings connecting Steve Bruce with the vacant Newcastle United position, it isn't clear what may happen to the value of any Hull City players over the second half of the season but assuming Bruce stays in place, Brady might be worth monitoring again.

Robbie Brady started and scored a brace for the Republic of Ireland against an over-matched USA side in a 4-1 route of the Americans at the Aviva Stadium.

The USA had generally played well on European soil under German manager Jurgen Klinsmann but not on this day as Robbie Brady led Ireland in a route of the Americans. Anthony Pilkington got the scoring started early in the first half only to see his opener matched by Mix Diskerud toward the end of the half. The second half was all Ireland though with Brady, James McClean and Brady again scoring for the Irish. Not a good day for what should have been a very solid American defense despite the inclusion of young goalkeeper Bill Hamid over presumed number one Brad Guzan.

Robbie Brady isn't known for his defense but that's exactly what he contributed to Hull City's draw with Liverpool.

You aren't going to see too many one blocked shot, four interception, five tackle won stat lines from Robbie Brady but he can eventually retire knowing he did it once at the Premier League level. Generally a strong Brady performance involves shots on target, successful crosses and some corners won but against the Reds he managed none of those but piled up the defending stats. Maybe a conversion to holding midfield is in order.

Robbie Brady assisted on a Tom Ince goal and then scored one of his own but it wasn't enough as Hull City let a second half lead slip away for the third match in a row.

First it was West Ham United coming back from two one goal deficits to gain a 2-2 draw with Hull City. Then it was dire Newcastle coming back from two down in the second half for a 2-2 draw this past weekend. Now Steve Bruce has to be genuinely worried as his side have let a third second half lead in a row slip away to modest opposition. This time the result was a 3-2 loss and elimination from the Capital One Cup. Not a good trend for a team that was dangerously close to the drop last season despite their FA Cup final appearance and some famous results.
