Latest NCFC game review                                                                                     8/19

Bristol at home was a classic game of 2 halves Bristol shaded the first half and we dominated the second. For me Bristol were one of the best teams to play at Carrow Road apart from Marley Watkins he is still s@@@. 2 well taken goals by Kenny Mclean which should give Herr Farke a headache when it comes to selecting the side, with nearly all the squad fit again. Atmosphere at home matches is much much better these days and yes the football helps. The guys at Along Come Norwich and Barclay End Norwich can also take praise for this though.

Next game for NCFC and pre match details

Swansea at home and also our Armed Forces Day. I’m expecting City turn up the heat in these remaining home games and with it another home win. 2-0 NCFC with Pukki and Hernandez with the goals. Pre match will be the usual outside the Queen of Iceni from about 1800. Flag will be up as usual on the bridge.

April

06th NCFC v QPR 1230 KO Sky TV

10th NCFC v Reading 1945 KO Sky TV. Game has been moved from the Tuesday to the Wednesday.

13th Wigan v NCFC KO 1500. (F2C away day and stopover) Wigan Forces v Forces2Canaries 5 a side match before the game.

My guess is that the remaining away games will all go to the points system apart from the Wigan game where I believe we will have around 5000 tickets.

Daniel Farke night at Carrow Road last week was very good and well attended, with over 400 people there on the night. DF has a good sense of humour and he considers Norfolk as his second home and this will always be the case regardless of which club he manages. Also the guy stayed on for over an hour posing for photos with fans. Top man.
