Who are ya?

Recommended Posts

Right then! Seeing as some users seem to think it's fine to share personal information about other posters that they've gleaned from scouring the internet, how about a bit of openness and honesty on here? Obviously some people would rather keep their information private, which is totally cool, but I figured if I shared the information myself it's better than having other people post things about me out of context.

I'm not doing this in a passive-aggressive way. I know I've slagged off other posters along the way, and I probably will do again in future, but life's too short for all the bickering, so here's a little exercise to try to bring us a bit closer together.

I've put together this natty little questionnaire about myself, so you can find out a little bit about me from the horse's mouth.

Name: Matt
Age: 40
Location: Norwich
Job: editor/writer/marketer (and yes, I did take voluntary redundancy from a role with Archant in 2019!)
Started supporting City: 1986
Season ticket: since 2008, River End Upper (shhhhhh)
Favourite Canary moment: Playoff final 2015, finally watching Norwich at Wembley with my old man after nearly 30 years of waiting
Top 5 players you've seen in a Norwich shirt: James Maddison, Darren Huckerby, Grant Holt, Ian Crook, Wes Hoolahan
Favourite current player: Alex Tettey
Hobbies/pastimes outside of football: Music, gigs and festivals, cycling, gardening, reading, board games, travel, languages
Random fact: I'm currently trying to learn Japanese. It's hard.

Over to you guys!

Just be a bit careful. It's not the regulars but all kinds of nutters view these posts. I've had to put personal information on here for Rays Funds and been trolled with emails and phone calls.

You don't really want posters like that poster on my case the other night trolling you.

Fair shout. I've redacted my surname and made my location a little less specific. Surprised that 'citysick' poster hasn't been banned?

Name: Lakey
Age: 64
Location: Nirvana
Job: Footballing advisor for left footed players
Started supporting City: around 1965
Season ticket:  Main Car Park in Keswick since 2015
Favourite Canary moment: Too many to choose from but one that always sticks in my mind is a Kevin Keelan save against Chelsea in the replay after the fogged off match in 73 - a save that was simply breathtaking.

Top 5 players you've seen in a Norwich shirt: Any left footed player who has ever played on the left at some time in their career 🙂
Favourite current player: Vrancic (also co-incidentally left footed)
Hobbies/pastimes outside of football: Wearing daft hats and looking morose
Random fact: I once had a dog called Elvis fall on me from the roof of a house, I managed to catch him and break his fall and ended up talking about it on Radio 5 with the headline "Elvis fell on me from a great height". True. Every word.

Sorry if some of that is a bit fecetious, but don't want to much personal stuff out there. Those that know me already is quite sufficient.

Too late mate.......Leatherface with his chainsaw is on his way round as I type. Seriously though Nutty is right.

You may remember the footballer-turned-boxer Curtis Woodhouse who managed to track down his troll and was texting him ' live ' as he was walking down his street saying he was coming to get him. He didn't of course and the two of them kissed and made up on a morning TV sofa but the danger is real.

Only the other day someone on here threatened to knock someone out. Keyboard bravado maybe, but you never know.

You'd hope that it would never come to that between genuine NCFC fans, but there are some strange eggs out there.

Anyway, it's good, solid advice, and I'm glad to see lots of other people following suit and sharing their stories/details in such a way that they're not opening themselves up to lunatics!

I'd happily share a drink with any other NCFC fan, no matter what nonsense had been posted between us on an internet forum.

OTBC!
