Best;

  1. Bayern Munich home gane

  3. Cardiff 4-1 (Hux last game - best individual performance I have ever seen in City shirt)

Worst;

  1. Sunderland FAC S/F 1992
  2. 6-2 home defeat by Forest Xmas 1990
  3. 5-1 defeat at Spurs in 1993 that killed off our lingering title hopes.
  4. Any defeat by Ipswich.
  5. 1-1 draw with Coventry last year which for 70 minutes was the most listless disgraceful display I have seen by a City team.

Would agree with most of those - sadly I was at more of the worst than the best moments. I actually have seen us lose 7-1, 6-1, 5-1 (Blackburn, Port Vale, West Brom and Spurs) and many other lesser defeats up to 4 goals. For me the worst was seeing us have 5 goals put past us by West Brom and the 4 days later seeing us let in 6 at Port Vale - I remember saying to my brother at the time that the only way was up as it couldn''t get worse than that!

I remember the Forest 6-2 game very well. I recall going into HMV in nottingham not long after and there was a video of the game with brian clough and a speach bubble saying "happy new year".

We also lost 4-0 at home to wimbledon that year band that was probabaly our worst home season i can recall, we seemed to lose or get stuffed every game.

without a doubt the six nil loss to fulham has been the worst moment as a city fan we only had to draw to stay up

and the best shortlived moment was iwan roberts goal at the play off finals in extra time the noise when we scored was unbeleivable

Best

1. Beating QPR 2-0 in Oct 84, my first visit to Carrow Road, was really worried the game wouldn''t be on because of the fire in the main stand only a couple of days before!

2. Beating Portsmouth 2-0 in Jan 86, both teams were at the top end of the 2nd div and the atmosphere was amazing.

3. Iwan''s goal at the Play Off Final!

4. Beating Cardiff 4-1 in Dec 03, Hucks'' last game on loan, he was fantastic!

5. Beating Charlton 1-0 in Apr 05, the escape was still possible and Svensson''s goal was great! (I still miss Svensson).

 

Worst

1. Losing to Watford 3-1 at home in Sept 86. It was the first time I saw them lose!

2. Losing at Ipswich in Dec 93, Megson og.

3. Losing (badly) at Charlton 4-0 in Nov 04, it was AWFUL (enough said).

4. The penalty shoot out at the Play Off Final.

5. Losing at home to Plymouth 3-1 last season, 2 identical goals conceeded from free kicks, dire!

Ok here are my top five best and worst memories of watching Norwich since 1989Top Five:
  1. The Entire 2003/04 Season - Can''t narrow it down I''m afraid, although for me Mullers'' goal at the Madejski that took the roof off the stadium was a highlight, as was the promotion party at Vicarage Road and Iwan''s two goals & pitch invasion at Crewe. Best bit though was undoubtably Top of the League at Portman Road. Was bloody scary for me though ''cos we ended up in the Home End to begin with (we''d been given complimentary tickets, see?) but fortunately when we revealed to the nearby stewards that we were Norwich supporters they moved us to the away end where we could abuse the binners without fear of reprisals. Sorted.
  2. The Southampton FA Cup Quarter Finals that went into extra-time. That match was mental - red cards, world-class goals, Hurlock(?) breaking every bone in Flecky''s mid-section has he waltzed past him for the umpteenth time, then pulling back the win from nowhere and witnessing the River End START a chant of casarasara! Stingey gits have never done it since.
  3. Beating Nottingham Forest 3-1 at Carrow Road to go top of the league in the Premiership. I remember that one really well for some reason. Had a big firework display put on by Sky TV at the end after we absolutely spanked them and people were just starting to realise Norwich were actually a force to be reckoned with.
  4. Beating Man United 2-0 in 04/05, which considering our squad at the time, was probably a bigger achievement than any other time we''ve beaten a "big team". In ten years time, this could still be the biggest win we''ve had in this generation.
  5. The Snakepit getting Matthew Etherington sent off. That was the funniest thing I''ve ever seen in a football match, and probably forever will be.
Worst Five:
  1. Losing to Sunderland in the FA Cup Semi-Final. We were awful. And John Byrne hansn''t come off ''my list'', since.
  2. Losing to Birmingham in Cardiff. That was particularly harsh for me because I''d flown back from America on the Friday night, arrived in Gatwick on Saturday morning, driven back to Norfolk, got my stuff, then driven all the way over to Cardiff just for the game. Then my American girlfriend dumped me because of it. Cheers, Daryl.
  3. Fulham. All we needed to do was draw. Only Norwich can go into a game just needing to draw and come out losing 6-0. Damien Francis'' smug grin at the end of the game when the rest of the players were in tears will be with me for a long time too.
  4. Losing to Burnley 4-1. The realisation that we''d actually gone full circle and were right back where we started - if not worse so. Worthy was a fine manager and brought great times to Carrow Road but completely lost the plot. This was the most shambolic performance I can ever remember watching - we played the entire second half without a left back.
  5. Losing to Wimbledon 4-0. First time I ever really saw Norwich get stuffed. Wasn''t the last. Forest went on to beat us 6-2 later that same season and we still continue to lose by silly amounts at least one in fifteen games even now.

im only going to choose matches from where i actually attended or saw on tv..

1. Norwich 2-1 Southampton, 1992 FA Cup 1/4 final replay. (the best match... ever! wouldnt of fancied us on penalties.. saints had Tim Flowers in goal who was handy from 12 yards.. we had Mark Walton.. although to be fair he  had saved a spot kick vs Millwall in an earlier round.)

2. Norwich 2 -0 Man utd

3. Norwich 4-4 Middlesboro

4. Promotion! (and all the celebrations afterwards)

5. the playoff semis and the stockport game before it.

worst.

1. Iwans last match

2. Playoff final Defeat

3. Watching us lose the semi to sunderland in 1992 on TV. their goal was offside (watch it again) thats the closest we will ever get to the FA Cup im afraid folks... i sat in my bedroom and sobbed my eyes out that day.

4. Norwich 4- 5 Southampton. Premiership 1995.. where we all started to think that we were doomed.

5. Gunny breaking his ankle in 1995 which was the day it all went wrong for us.

jas :)

Good post Millo!

Best:-

1. Iwan scoring at Cardiff, pure euphoria for 5 fairytale minutes!

2. Beating Ipswich 2-1 in December 2003, [8] Top of the league at Portman Rd!!! [8]

3. Beating Man Utd 2-0 at Carrow Rd in 04/05 Prem season (partly because it was a late k/o for Sky and I went out clubbing afterwards and didn''t sleep in my own bed [;)] woohoo! But also for a fantastic performance that made survival seem possible!)

4. 1-0 win over Forrest on Boxing Day 2003, Matt Svensson home debut goal despite playing rubbish that confirmed lady luck was with us and that it was going to be our year! (Me and my Dad sat in the match sponsors box with my Dad''s colleagues from Aylsham Bath & Door and got all the tour, Delia''s restaurant etc saw Delia at about 11am and asked her whether Hux was signing, she tried to be diplomatic but her massive smile gave it away and she winked and said "watch this space!" Txt every City fan we knew to tell them, got smashed and had a great day with Gunny and Terry Allcock, Hux presented on pitch to massive celebrations etc before stumbling in to the players lounge by mistake whilst trying to find the exit, where my Dad proceeded to give Leon Mackenzie a great big hug! Embarassing but awesome!!!)

5. Bradford away in run-up to the play-off''s, Mcveigh scores a late winner to keep our dwindling play-off hopes alive, sparking some memorable celebrations for us in the small away end at Valley Parade!!!

Worst:-

1. 6-0 Fulham, whole City was geared up to celebrate and we got screwed!

2. Penalties in the play-off final, I didn''t watch, just listened to the crowd.

3. 5-0 defeat to Ipswich in ''98, watched it on the big screen set up infront of the Barclay, oh dear!

4. Ipswich away last year, lost 3-1, I was in the Ipswich North Stand, bugger.

5. Any match at bloody Selhurst Park, I hate that ground and we always lose so why do I always go!!!
