    TWTD of the day

    An Ipswich fan I was talking to on the way up called a 3 - 2 score, just got the winning team wrong. Also thought we would stay up. Perhaps they are starting to be nice to us. Incidentally this is the first time in a long time that I can remember both teams having a home game on the same day. Does not feel like good planning!

    Praise from mancity.com

    I sit close to the Away fans and they applauded us as they were leaving. Fair play to them as you could see the concern on their faces from the moment we scored.

    After the Crawley and West Ham defeats

    A fixture that most teams in the division will lose, yet it is a must win for us! Jobsworth how can I put it nicely - you seem to lack intellectual robustness.

    After the Crawley and West Ham defeats

    At this point last season we would not have believed that we would be in a position to be disappointed at premier league defeats. It’s all part of the journey and part of being a Norwich fan. Oh and grow up JC

    Ricardo's report v Newcastle

    I followed a guy with Ricardo on the back of his shirt on the way to the game on Saturday. Definitely has not seen 66 seasons!

    Yes the full match is available on I follow. Go to Broadcast Norwich v Newcastle in the video section.

    They normally have a video offering titled “Broadcast” which is the full match. Was there last season or the end of last season as well.

    Jamal Lewis

    Returned to the pitch at the end of the game to acknowledge the crowd and looked to be walking just fine. Hopefully a good sign that he will fit for next Saturday

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    I think it is feet on the ground time re ACM. First it seems a long odds chance we will get him. But if we did expectations seem to be surging towards the stratosphere. A bit like they did when we signed RvW. We really do not know how good he would be in the Premiership. Arsenal and West Ham apparently were interested but it cooled. Are YouTube clips a good guide? I am sure a great montage of Onel could be put together for last season and the Championship is supposedly a much stronger division than ligue 2. Dropping a reported £15m on a prospect, albeit maybe a great prospect, really does not seem our style and in our financial position nor should it be. OTBC

    I would rather have Bradley Johnson. Take your pick on which role.

    Jarrold

    Agree. But the Chapelfield store is too small and the one at Carrow Rd too crowded on matchday so I see this as a positive.

    Josip Drmic signs

    Looks to have been decent until 2015, but then had two consecutive year long injuries. Fits the mould of Webber signings of decent players whose careers have nose dived a bit. Hopefully Daniel can get him back to his best and a bit more. But a striker on a free, now whenever has that worked out...!

    Ricardo Remembers Part 1

    Great description Ricardo. I was a River End boy, well youth, and can relate. Two memories from me. The first being the decrepit press box, a sort of shed on stilts, which sat between the River End and the South Stand. Already condemned as unsafe in the early 1970s I can recall trying to stand on its steps to get a better view of the game v Bristol City at home in 1972. One of the few league matches where the gate exceeded 35,000 and there were supporters everywhere. Unfortunately my enhanced viewing position was terminated early by the boys in blue, no doubt looking after my safety. An end of season match that ended 2 -2 and felt like a real blow to our promotion hopes ( any resonance to last season?), which were eventually realised in getting to the top flight for the first time. The second relates to a home match v Everton a few months later, I think this may be our first ever match in the top flight. Supporters were not separated in those days and I recall standing close to a group of Everton fans who were getting frustrated at our ability to get the ball in play from a throw in. I tried to helpfully explain that we were not good at quick throw ins only to get a retort of scouse irony that we can not even take a slow one.

    Fence-ringing

    Purple I agree with that. The club has increased the capacity and people are sitting on those seats, that can only be extra people sitting on those seats not fans migrating round the ground. However having already increased the capacity by circa 6.5k, can the trick be repeated again for another 4k. I accept that the break even accounting may mean that you do not to sell them all consistently for it to be financially worthwhile. But, and I think you have argued this in the past, gate receipts are a small percentage of overall income so there is a balance to be struck between the relatively minor financial gains and the intangible atmospheric benefits of something close to a sold out stadium that at the moment is pretty much a given at Carrow Rd at the moment. That of course is something that can not be empirically tested. It does though seem to resonate with the players. See the club’s recent tweet of Mo Leitner’s Instagram comment of his most special moment of the season. For those of you that have not seen it, it refers to the crowd reaction after the Stoke loss at home game, which he says shows what a special club Norwich is.
