Latest NCFC game reviews
Boro away was a great away day despite the long slog up north and the late kick off. The atmosphere in the pub was non stop for 2 hours well done guys. Around 1450 fans made the journey up North. The game itself and I thought City were ok first half but nothing to shout about if I’m honest. However as with most games this season you know City can and invariably do up their game second half. That was the case Saturday and once we scored courtesy of Hernandez (another good performance from the guy) I always felt we would see the game out. Yet another MOTM award for Zimmerman the main man which was thoroughly deserved. Great to meet David Mckenzie for the first time Saturday. See you at Wigan Shippers. So it is 7 straight wins, 7 games to go and 7 points clear of 3rd.
Next game for NCFC and pre match details
Next opponents for City at Carrow Road are QPR, who decided to part company with their manager on Monday. I have never rated the wally with the brolly (I was at that game at Wembley, what a muppet he was, not for is brolly but for his team selection on the night) think he is/was over rated to say the least. Simply put I expect us to be far too strong for them and predict a 3-0 win for City. Pre match I’m sure some of our guys will be in/outside the Queen of Iceni. After the game we will be outside the Coach and Horses on the Thorpe Road hopefully celebrating with a beer or two.

The signed shirt/football we received as part of our quiz win has not attracted any bids, so I have donated the items to an independent team who are taking part in the CanaryBall Rally in October. Each team has to raise £5000 pounds all of which goes to the CSF Nest project. Either way we donated the shirt and ball, the money ends up at the CSF which is all that matters.
New F2C Away flag Has been ordered and will arrive on the 06th April. This has cost F2C £94.
