  1. Just read this on Sky Sports website from Lambert about Holt;

    "So while it was a flattering offer, I never expected him to want to leave. Mind you, if it had been Celtic, I would have driven him up there myself!"

    I understand Lambert''s love for Celtic and that it was a bit of a tounge in cheek comment, but it''s not really what we want to hear about our talisman who continues to have a massive influence on the side. Coupled with that, Lambert knows how much the fans value him so it just struck me as a weird thing to say. Obviously he may have misquoted.

  2. I just went over and said great goal today Simeon, he said thanks and that was about it. I asked if I could have a photo with him and he was fine with it. It wasn''t my business why he was on the train so didn''t pry! Pretty reserved guy all in all. He got off at Sheffield so i''m not worrying about a loan move! Maybe he has family up here. Great day capped off by meeting the match winner!

  3. I did swear my backide off when I heard. Already booked accommodation and trains!

    As it falls during a week when I am using some holiday up, i''m adding another night to the trip. Arriving Tuesday morning and travelling home Thursday morning.

    Hopefully the bright lights of Sunderland can keep me entertained....

    Anyone know what it''s like as a place? I''ve never been before.

    Match ticket came today, i''m row 33 seat seven hundred and something.

  4. Yeah I figure the Sky factor has had a bearing on it. Personally think it has the potential to be a cracking game and I wouldn''t want to miss out on actually being there.

    It will be a fair trek from Norwich though. It''s 3 hours on the train for me from Rotherham!

    Will be great to watch Lambert pit his wits against O''Neill. Should be pretty interesting.

  5. I''m going too. Travelling in from Rotherham. Really up for this one and i''ll be contributing to a brilliant noise from our lot. I''ve been to Wigan, Bolton, Villa so far an thought the crowd at Villa was "really vibrant" to quote someone....

    I think we''ll scrap hard and snatch a point. 2-2 for me.

  6. I couldn''t agree more with the OP. Like i''ve said, I don''t post very often but enjoying reading the forum discussions. Just lately though i''ve been struck by how quickly some people single out individual players for a slating or suddenly turn into prophets of doom because we lose 1 - 2 to Arsenal.

    I had a couple of beers last night and was browsing the match reports on the BBC sport website. I was overwhelmed with a huge sense of pride to read in big, black letters ''Norwich 1 - 2 Arsenal''. This isn''t being starry-eyed, just a recognition of the incredible path Norwich City Football Club has weaved over the last two years.

    I recognise disappointment and that everyone has an opinion but I think there is a massive amount to be positive about. We certainly have enough skill, bravery and fight to be 17th come the end of the season judging by the standard of others already in the lower reaches. This season was always going to be a learning curve so lets not be down.Lets get behind the team through the cold, hard winter.

  7. Yeah there is a seat number but didn''t bother putting it. I too thought the ticket is incredibly boring! Not a hint of sky blue anywhere, just a weird orange waveform.

    With regard to the hostility, i''ve heard plenty of other reports similar to what has been mentioned. Including some of coin throwing. I just plan to make plenty of racket and enjoy watching our boys battle some of the world''s best players.

  8. I rarely post on here guys but i''m pretty excited about this one.

    I can usually gauge roughly where i''ll be sat but i''m not sure this time. I was hoping anyone who has been before can shine some light on it. My ticket says ''South Stand Level 1, Block 114, Aisle 115, Row A.''

    Do we think this really near the front? Or nearer the back? It is the ''aisle'' bit I can''t figure out.

    All the best
