  1. First thing my young lad said when he got back from the game was that the goal music was back! He’s been humming it the whole weekend since so he’s certainly happy!

    Maybe it means my hope of The Final Countdown returning as the run out music is one step closer 😂

  2. You would have to hope that lessons from last time have been learned. We totally ballsed that one up didn’t we!

    I don’t think we would be far off a team capable of survival with the spine we have and then the right signings and maybe a couple of key loans (a raid on Mr Knappers old Arsenal academy perhaps?) 

    I mean who would have given Luton a sniff of staying up at this point in the season. We would be starting at a far better grounding than them and the best thing for us if we were to go up, would be Luton staying up as surely they couldn’t last two years.

    Then we just have to hope that Chelsea and Man City receive 100 point deductions and there we go...job done! Safety assured!


  3. I think we need to enjoy him while we can ☹️. He has grown into a complete old school  number 9 in my opinion in the last couple of seasons and had he not missed a huge chunk this season would have been looking at over 20 league goals easily.

    wasnt there interest from Farke in bringing him to Leeds in the summer? I would imagine given he is now use to the English game that he would want to reunite with him if Leeds go on and secure a top flight spot next year and I’m sure they won’t be the only lower half premier league teams sniffing around unfortunately. 

  4. It’s been a while since I got involved with the forum but had been quite frequent back in the Worthy days and speculating whether or not Hucks would sign!! Wonder how many are knocking about from those days?

    just a quick straw poll to see where people see us ending up come May following our recent upturn in form, especially at home!

    The loss of Rowe is unfortunate but I still cling on to hopes that we can make a late surge in to the playoffs.... Anyone for Ipswich???......

    lets see what you all think...

    Seven away wins today out of ten matches I believe.  Bit unusual and a shame for us.

    Very unusual but just so long as we keep winning our games at home and getting a few in away as well that pressure will keep cranking up on the ones above! 

    In Waggers we trust!

  6. I think Kenny has been a revelation this season either at the back or midfield and would love for him to be rewarded with POTS this year although young Rowe would also be fully deserving of that award.

    I would not be against seeing Kenny retained at centre back if it meant Nunez and Sara get a good run together for the run in and with CB options on the bench there are plenty of alternatives should it be needed.

    I think at this point it’s fair to say that if Sargent had been available all season we would be comfortably cemented in the play off positions already 

    I think I would go as far as saying if had both he and Barnes remained fit then we would have firmly been in the automatic place hunt. We seeing the signs of a blossoming partnership which was stiff led at exactly the wrong time.

    Shame Rowe is now out but hopefully he can make the play off final against the bottle jobs down the road 😂

  8. Hi all,

    I am having a little clear-out and last night sorted through my collection of matchday programs which date back to the early 1970''s.

    I am considering whether or not to part with them. There are over 350 in total and wonder what their value would be.

    If anyone on here would like to make an offer I will consider it if it is sensible. The quality of the condition varies from excellent to a few which are pretty tardy!!


  9. I think there are just over 600 in the book this year and yea the new prices are a scandal.

    However the way me and my pals and several colleagues look at it is when you spread it over the coming months leading up to the World Cup and get together to watch the CL final/ FA cup final over a few stickers its a good bit of harmless fun!

    Anyway I am clearly collecting them with my boy haha!

  10. I appreciate this isn''t NCFC related but I just wanted to see if anyone is likely to collect the World Cup Stickers this year?

    I am told they are to be available from tomorrow and I understand they are likely to be more expensive this time around at 80p per pack but I am still tempted to collect them.

    If there are others maybe a little pink un online ''swap-shop'' could be formed to help keep the surplus down!

    Cheers & OTBC

  11. Having read and taken part in Archant''s survey it is painfully obvious that the vast majority are not at all happy with the matchday experience at Carrow Road. I am no longer a season ticket holder due to work commitments and a lengthy house renovation but I hope to return when my boy is old enough to join me.

    I have had season tickets however from the age of 8 for the next 28 plus years so I am coming from experience. In the handful of games I have been able to get to over the past few years I have been thoroughly unimpressed with the lack of atmosphere within the stadium and I feel it has a lot to do with the state of football in this country at the moment. The prices we have to pay to support our teams are an absolute scandal considering the amount the clubs receive from television rights and other mediums. Rather than going to players, agents et al these increases to the coffers should be filtered down as savings to the fans.

    I recently had the fortune of attending a Bundesliga game at the tail end of last season and it is a footballing experience like I have never witnessed before. The atmosphere both inside the ground and outside was absolutely electric. Fans setting up gazebos selling beer for less than £2 and bratwurst for even less than that. Music playing and fans just meeting up and mingling hours before the game. There were no signs of trouble and the Police presence seemingly low.

    Live music was playing inside the ground prior to kickoff and the stands full of flags were constantly waving and in full voice. It was the best football day out I have ever had and that includes our recent trip to Wembley!

    With us introducing a German flavour to our line up and backroom team, I would love nothing more for us to embrace their culture and attitude towards fans and not continually look for ways to exploit and milk for our hard earned cash.

    The former Bayern President said that the difference between £200 and £500 to their fan is a lot of money over a season ticket however across the stadium it is a few million pounds which is nothing to a club like them. What a positive PR exercise it would be for our club to come out with something similar.... you never know it could catch on and completely revitalise the game in this country and boy could we do with it.

    Give the fans something back, I am positive the atmosphere would crank up with it.

  12. Cor some of you lot don''t half get your panties in a bunch easily!

    If this 28 year old journeyman turns out to be the next Dele Ali then I will be amazed! And yes we do get the odd gem from the lower leagues but I don''t hold out much hope with our recruitment record. The last time we had lower league transfer success with the likes of Holt, Fox, Tierney, Pilkington et all they were all buying into something rather special. I wonder what these poor beggers will be buying into?

    I just can''t help but thinking we have really let go of such a good opportunity to establish ourselves in the top flight having worked so hard to get back there and now it looks a hell of a long way away now.

    But hey let''s just keep lapping up all the bull$hit from the board and the social media dross thrown our way and be happy with our lot. After all we must stay part of the Little Norwich family eh!

  13. So in a couple of transfer windows we have gone from being linked to the likes of Alderweireld and Van Dyke to a couple of lads from Bradford and Barnsley!

    Isn''t it great to have Prudence back at Carrow Road, or do you think perhaps she never really left?

    Well played the Board, well played!

  14. Completely agree with the OP.

    Only a couple of weeks ago we were sitting at the top of the tree. In two weeks time we could be there once again. Next week will show a great deal about whether Neil has ''lost the dressing room'' but I think it''s imperative we give him a chance from our end of the bargain.

    Reactions are taken too quickly these days. We need to support the team and manager rather be than just sitting there waiting for them to fail. Football is a results based business and until the Fulham second half, results were good.

    The level of expectancy which has crept into the ground over recent seasons has meant that there is no atmosphere and despite our winning run and getting the right results there were many who were blarring their eyes out because we weren''t hitting 5 or 6 goals to nought each week and despite the 3 points the ground atmosphere was awful.

    lets turn Carrow Road into the fortress it once was once again as with that the results will soon follow. The players and the boss will grow from it and we will certainly do what everyone outside the club expects of us this year and return to the top flight.
