Latest NCFC game review                                                                            Issue 10

Swansea home game was memorable not only for our pitch parade but the absolute screamer from Emi Buendia to give us 3 more valuable points towards the promotion line which is getting closer each week. Some say we played poorly on Friday night, for me however as the bar has risen so high this season the game Friday was good in parts but just not up to our normal high standards. Swansea gave it their best and pushed NCFC till the end.                                                                           

Next 2 games for NCFC and pre match details

Hull come to Carrow Road this evening with a poor recent away record. That said I feel this game could be close and will go for a hard fought 2-1 home win. Stiepermann and Teemu Pukki with the goals. We will be inside the Queen of Iceni pre match.

Rotherham away with a sold out City following and our expectations will be high. Think we will be too strong for the home side and can see us running out with a 3-0 win. Pukki, Buendia and Rhodes with the goals.  Cutler Arms on Westgate is the pub of choice. I may be running a tad late as I have to drop Mrs T off at the Meadowhall shopping Centre first #couldbecostly.

Armed Forces Day at Carrow Road on Friday 8th March. Many thanks to the 22 F2C members who took part. Fantastic to see so many members representing F2C and by far our biggest Group gathering in the 16 years of Forces2Canaries. It was a very special and proud occasion to be part of the parade alongside fellow Veterans and Serving members from Forces2Canaries. The reception we received from both sets of fans was awesome. Our Patron Lord Richard Dannatt and his son Oli popped into the pub pre match for a beer and chat. This time he wasn’t surronded by ex Senior Service guys as this time it was nearly all ex Army. Good to see you as always guvnor. Photos from the parade are on our website. Hope to get some more official ones from the club soon.

Forces2 Canaries Whats App Group now stands at 30. Let me know if you would like to join the group.
