Middlesbrough Away/Wigan Forces game

By |March 29th, 2019|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Few of us will be on the road mid morning for the 1730 Kick Off at the Riverside Stadium. Our first game since the International break 2 weeks ago seems longer. Should be around 1800-2000 fans make the long trip north and most fans will be expecting City to carry on where they finished against Rotherham. So long as we come away with at least a point to edge #ncfc [...]

Many thanks to Norwich City FC for hosting the Armed Forces Day halftime pitch parade on Friday night. We had a great turnout with over 20 Forces2Canaries members taking part. In addition to our group there were Veterans from various local organisations. Plus a few serving RAF personnel from RAF Marham. Very proud moment to walk around the pitch in front of all the fans.

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.

By |February 20th, 2019|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Two games up North to catch-up on. The first game was against another ex-City manager Alex Neil and his Preston team, a manager who has some class about him. As has been the case in recent years after a Derby win the midweek game has resulted in defeat. Despite having most of the play particularly in the second half, City suffered only the second loss away from home this season. [...]

NCFC v Ipswich

By |February 8th, 2019|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

 NCFC head into the Sunday Derby without the services of Timmy Klose and Mo Leitner. However had they been available would they have made the starting lineup.............i very much doubt it. The gap between the two teams has not been this big for a very long time. Many will say it should be a walkover for NCFC and I can agree to some extent. That said these local (45 miles [...]

Another away point at WBA

By |January 14th, 2019|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

2700 City fans travelled to the Hawthorns on Saturday and I'm sure they expected a tough game. What most fans didn't bank on was a 45 mins where City gave the ball away far too cheaply or pinged the ball in to touch. At half-time it was 1-0 to WBA which was a fair reflection on the half for some fans it was worse as they booed the team off. [...]

Next up at Carrow Road Derby County

By |December 28th, 2018|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

City came away from the Boxing Day fixture against Nottingham Forest with only a point when in reality they should have had all 3 points. The ref did his best to anger everyone in the stadium due to his many bizarre decisions, despite this NCFC staged another late late show and the rest is history as they say. We go into the game with Derby County carrying a few injuries. [...]

Next up Blackburn away

By |December 21st, 2018|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

We travel to Blackburn in the morning and traffic permitting will meet up in the Fernhurst pub before the game. The game tomorrow is the first of 4 in 11 days for #ncfc . Blackburn have only been beaten once this season at home (losing to Sheff Utd) so expect a tough game against a well drilled team. So my score prediction is 2-2. OTBC. Onwards and Upwards.

Another away win and another 4 goals

By |November 26th, 2018|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

The NCFC bandwagon keeps on rolling and Saturday's win at Swansea was our 6th in a row. Scoring 4 goals for the 3rd game in a row 18 games played and 36 points. Looking good as we head towards the festive period. Did someone mention 25 points #mindthegap.    Couple of links for you.  First one is the excellent piece on Emi Buendia from Adam Brandon via our friends at Along [...]

17 years of pain wiped out at Hillsborough

By |November 7th, 2018|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

At long last the unwanted ghost  was laid to rest against Sheff Wed with a thumping win on Saturday. While #ncfc dominated the first half you always felt City could gift the home side a soft goal, thankfully we reached halftime at 0-0. What followed in the second half can only be described as the best 45 mins City have played in a long long time. Total domination resulted in [...]

Norwich City released their accounts yesterday. This latest set of accounts run to the 30 June 2018. Cash rich until after the 01 Jan 2019 and a tax bill.

However not everyone has £500 to spare, so we are inviting our F2C members and NCFC supporters in general to be part of this. They [...]

We are too good for you

By |November 2nd, 2017|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

That was the chant from the Wolves fans at the end of the game Tuesday night. Too be fair they were spot on. A team of big, strong, skilful and quick players was far too much for NCFC on the night. Most fans at Carrow Road will be surprised if Wolves don't go up this season.  This is in stark contrast to the Old Farm derby at Portaloo Rd on [...]

Not many surprises for most fans all be it we paid top wages last season and didn't even make the playoffs. The other head shaker was with wages and pay off Moxey was paid the equivalent of £6,500 per day. Think the phrase rhymes with "Clucking Bell".

Keep the Faith

By |September 14th, 2017|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

"Patience" "Keep the Faith" "Work in Progress"  I'm sure most fans echo those words but after the first half Tuesday night some fans will have started to question this. At times in the first half the pace of the game resembled a pre season friendly. Knowing in advance that Burton would "Park the Bus" it would surely be just a matter of time before we scored. Sadly the shots on [...]

Daniel Farke welcome to the fine City

By |May 27th, 2017|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

After a season to forget for so many reasons we now have some focus at #ncfc with the arrival of Daniel Farke. We always felt that the Bundesliga was the place to look for a Head Coach, although not many in England had heard of him. The Sporting Director/Head Coach is the norm in that league and seems to work well. Having completed the usual search online about Daniel, he [...]

New Sporting Director and Global Supporters Weekend

By |April 12th, 2017|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Think it is fair too say that the last 12 months have been pretty crap for the club and the supporters. Relegation, 2 CEO'S and one manager departing, poor recruitment and an away form this season that even Wigan can better(so far). The board have taken some stick recently and quite rightly so however they should be applauded for changing the structure and bringing in Stuart Webber as SD. I believe [...]

Life is never dull supporting #ncfc and today just backed that up. A few hours after giving his normal Friday afternoon press conference Alex Neil was sacked. Granted he should have gone in 2016 but the timing of the announcement on Friday, does not do the under fire board any favours at all. For me the Board, the manager and the players are all to blame for the mess #ncfc [...]

Upturn in NCFC fortunes

By |February 13th, 2017|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

NCFC current form is something to behold at the moment. 4 wins 1 draw 1 defeat is the form of a team heading for the top 4. Whether this form can be maintained, only time will tell. Saturday's game saw 5 goals for the home fans to celebrate. 3 of which were from the top draw, the pick of them being the Jonny Howson goal, tremendous Tekkers for that one. [...]

All change at NCFC…..again

By |February 3rd, 2017|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

After six months at Carrow Road, Jez Moxey has resigned and left the club by mutual consent. There had been whispers this would be the case a few weeks ago, so for some while this was a surprise it wasn't a shock. Jez arrived at #ncfc back in August, with many Wolves fans saying good riddance after 16 years. During his six months at the club, I think it is [...]

The first half at Oakwell Saturday was up there with the #ncfc shockers of 2016. So it was no surprise when the players and manager were berated at half time by the fans. 1200 fans made the effort to get to the game sadly that effort wasn't reciprocated by many of the players. Second half was much better, well at least the first 25 mins however the damage was done [...]

Well done to Martin Olssen on getting sent off in under 120 seconds on Saturday, surely another #ncfc record. Another good away day spoilt by 90 mins of below average football from #ncfc. When you are in the Premier League playing against some of the top sides in the League and Europe, you can understand that you might lose five on the trot. However five defeats in the EFL where [...]

I have finally got "that" defeat out of my system. After losing and the manner of the defeat to the Red half of Merseyside (it took me weeks to get over that one) last season I don't think many #ncfc fans would have expected to this happen again. However this is NCFC after all and what seems like the impossible occasionally turns into reality before our very eyes. Newcastle away [...]

Respect to those hardy souls who made the long journey up to the North West. Josh Murphy's goal was another cracker to add to the list from the twins, these young guys are clearly a special talent [...]

6 points from two home games, everyone must be happy with that surely. Well I am but I'm sure there will be some fans that are still moaning that we are not playing like Barcelona (Celtic are quite familiar with their style of play i believe). Our ability to kill off teams as early as possible (we should have been 4-0 up in the first half last night) is still a [...]

Back to the real football at long last

By |September 10th, 2016|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Club football returns today after the two week International break. England managed to come back home with three points from their game against Slovakia, however less said about the performance the better. During the break the transfer window closed with well over one billion pounds being spent on transfers. For City it was a typical/poor/good transfer window depending on your view. Social media has seen many (heated at times) debates [...]

Another Transfer Window Closes

With a week to go before NCFC line up against Cardiff City at Carrow Road and City fans would have been hoping for some new faces in the starting line up come 1500 next Saturday. However as is normal these days with a last day transfer window the only NCFC business was to loan out 3 players to get some first team experience. The arrival of Nelson Oliveira to fill [...]

After a great performance and rare away win on the opening day of the season at Ewood Park, the focus now shifts to Carrow Road. First home game of the season and it's live on TV. Unfortunately our record in front of the cameras in recent times is not very good to say the least. I'm sure Alex Neil will have the team setup spot on for this game. Tough [...]

New Season New Hope

By |August 5th, 2016|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

So after a disappointing EURO 2016 we finally get back to the real football on Saturday. NCFC travel to Blackburn with no new strikers something we are getting used to these days. I'm sure Alex Neil / Jez Moxey will ensure that number 9 shirt is filled ASAP. So far the Colney staff have welcomed  2 keepers and two midfielders into the setup. Of those Pritchard is the stand out [...]

Finally out of our misery

After what seemed like years we were finally relegated back to the Championship after a entertaining win against Watford on Wednesday night. Even the Barclay tourists found their voice for the first time this season. Too little too late is the old saying and how true that is for NCFC. Had we scored against Aston Villa, Bournemouth, C.Palace, Swansea away and Sunderland  at home it would have been a different [...]

The only cheer on Saturday at Carrow Road came when the local Armed Forces paraded at half time. My thanks to Paul M, Carl, Dave and Paul B for representing F2C on the day. The match itself was all too familiar. Dominating the first half but unable to score then conceding a penalty, which we never recovered from. 4 extremely tough games remain but somehow we need to win at [...]

By |April 14th, 2016|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Saturdays game at Carrow Road is a nailed on "6 pointer". Win and we go 7 clear of Sunderland, lose and the gap is only 1 point. Tense affair guaranteed come 1245 Saturday plus I'm sure the TV cameras will add a little more to the mix. Score prediction from me is a nervy 2-1 win to City. Carrow Road once a year hosts an Armed Forces Day. This Saturday is [...]

Losing habit continues in 2016

By |March 2nd, 2016|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

2016 is turning out to be a sparse hunting ground for NCFC points wise. We always knew this would be a tough season but all these defeats still hurt. The latest one last night at Carrow Road. An indifferent first half from the team saw City go into the half time break 2-0 down thanks to poor defending and a visually impaired linesman. Second half was far better but the [...]

F2C Footgolf Competition

Our first Footgolf Competition of 2016 took place this afternoon. Sunny skies and a moderate wind greeted the 11 players who turned up at Eaton Park. The usual piss take and laughter at each others failings made for a good afternoon. Alex Edmonds and Michael Townsend finished as joint winners with a score of 61. Closely followed by Ross Sherwood and Nev Townsend on 62. Many thanks to all those [...]

Two games to forget……if only

By |January 27th, 2016|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Bournemouth game was or groups away day and a good time was had by all. Interrupted by 90 mins of poor football by NCFC. AFC were far better than NCFC in all departments on the day. If we want to stay in this league you need to be beating or at least not losing to those around you in this league. Having just got over losing to Liverpool yesterday this [...]

A few members of F2C will be heading to Bournemouth later today for another supporters group away day.

In December the Norwich City FC PR department put out a statement that they wanted to complete all their transfer business early in the transfer window. Half way through the [...]

9 points from a possible 12

By |January 5th, 2016|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Happy New Year one and all. As far as points returns go over the Christmas and New Year period this has to be up there at the top for NCFC. 3 wins one defeat. The defeat was no surprise as Spurs for me were the best team I have seen City play this season. Old Trafford win was a shock to many but not all "this was coming" being a [...]

Famous win at Old Tafford

After 26 long years we have finally won at Old Trafford. For those of us fortunate to be there on the day, the match and the atmosphere will live long in the memory. Let's just hope it's not another 26 years before we win again. The next 4 games present City with a great chance to add to the 3 points gained at Old Trafford. Spurs on Boxing Day is [...]

Win lose draw

By |December 1st, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

  Since running Man City close at the bigger better Etihad Stadium at the end of October, we have seen City gain 4 points. The win against Swansea wasn't pretty by any standards but the points gained were priceless. Chelsea away was another close game but this time one moments lapse in concentration put paid to any points for NCFC. Moving onto Saturdays game, Arsenal were set to be the toughest test so [...]

Keep the Faith

By |October 28th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Man City are the next opponents for NCFC this coming Saturday. Not many pundits will be backing the away team to break their worst run of form in Alex Neil's managerial  career. Poor defending and the inability to finish when chances present themselves have led to City slipping  ever closer to the bottom three. We have nearly 75% of the season still to go so now is not the time [...]

Twenty’s Plenty

By |October 1st, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

  Another Alex Neil inspired performance at Upton park last Saturday which produced one point that should in all honesty have been three. Watching NCFC away (since Jan 2015) has become something to look forward to. London away days are always enjoyable. This is at a cost though well over £100 for our lat visit to Upton Park.  This Saturday the opposition comes in the form of Leicester City at Carrow Road. [...]

Poor day at the office

By |August 30th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

South West F2C members Chris and Steve Phillips at the game earlier today. Poor performance from the team and a needless sending off resulted in a 3-0 defeat and a long trip home for some. We move onto the two week International break.  This should give Alex Neil time to prepare the team (those that are left) for the visit of the little rich seasiders from Bournemouth in 2 weeks [...]

Good start by City

By |August 28th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Three games into the Premier League season and we have 4 points after a loss, win and a draw. Having been to all three games I have to say City played well in all three games and deserved to be on 7 points. This season could be the closest ever between all 20 clubs. To be fair all I hope is that City stay up, judging by what i have [...]

After the triumphant scenes at Wembley and the celebrations that followed came the long wait till Kick Off on Saturday the 8th of August.  Many column inches have been written about how well/poorly we will do in the top league. No one knows for sure how well we will cope but with Alex Neil at the helm most feel comfortable about our chances this coming season. Not many transfers in [...]

8th Annual F2C Football at CR

By |May 23rd, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Thursday night saw many F2C members and friends of F2C play in our 8th match at Carrow Rd. This year was a little different as we played under floodlights. Weather was good, pitch was ok and crowd numbers swelled to nearly 20 by the end. As always playing at CR never loses its appeal and another keenly fought match was narrowly won by the Yellows. As always my thanks to [...]

Wembley here we come

By |May 20th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

If Carlsberg did football matches I think our game at Carrow Rd Saturday would be the benchmark. Beating that lot down the road and getting to Wembley doesn't get much better if you are a City fan. 1p5wich played their normal (hoofball) game Saturday and while they matched City in the first half they never really threatened John Ruddy in goal. Second half saw City dominate from start to finish [...]

Seconds out round 4

By |May 15th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

NCFC face 1p5wich for the fourth and final time this season on Saturday. After the 1-1 draw at Portaloo Rd last week, City will need to up their game to finish the job. The one dimensional hoof ball adopted by 1p5wich will need to be snuffed out early on. Carrow Rd was sold out earlier this week and should ensure a noisy welcome to the residents south of the border.

Many thanks to Chris, Carl, Ben and Shawn for representing F2C Friday night at Carrow Road. Our guys were there along with personnel from Marham and the Dragoons at Swanton Morley. Good night was had by all apart from the result obviously. On to the match itself................most people had City down for a win before the start of the game. Middlesbrough came with a game plan and it work unfortunately. [...]

6 Cup Finals remaining

By |April 6th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Last minute equalizer against Huddersfield, an easy win against Forest followed by a battling win against Brighton, leave city in third place ahead of today's game at Carrow Road. The run in is the closest it has been for many years. Do city have what it takes to secure one of the top two slots, with Alex Neil in charge I think we do. Average points return under Alex Neil [...]

As the clock counts down to kick off tomorrow some of the pre match hype will be about ticket prices. Derby fans have been bemoaning the price of their tickets Saturday for some time.

Mind The Gap

By |March 3rd, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Another derby game and another win. It's becoming a bit of a habit beating the smaller less well off neighbours. After seeing their performance Sunday they will do well to stay in the play offs to be fair. Bradley Johnson continues with his quest to break the back of the net during a game. Once that goal went in the bin dippers knew there would be only one outcome.  10 [...]

7 games into the new Era

By |February 20th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

On the eve of our trip to Watford I thought it was time to look back on Alex Neil's first seven games in charge. Firstly the stats, 5 wins 1 draw and 1 defeat, not bad at all and as a comparison the same as Neil Adams first seven games in charge. The most pleasing  being the 2-0 home win against Wolves. At no stage during that game did Wolves [...]

Alex Neil Green and Yellow Army

By |January 16th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

This time last week many NCFC fans were saying who is Alex Neil. One week later and 3 points from our away game at the League leaders not many are asking that question. While Bournemouth away wasn't up there with City's best performance, it was indeed a gutsy gritty shift from nearly all the players. An away win with ten men (thought C.Foy was harsh when sending Howson off) is [...]

The Neil Adams Experiment ends

By |January 6th, 2015|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Two disastrous away performances have seen Neil Adams fall on his sword. Those that witnessed the performances (and yes I did) will be asking how much were the players playing for the manager, not much by the look of it. The official line from Carrow Road was that Neil agreed to resign after meeting with the board over the weekend. Resigned / pushed or backed into corner, at the end [...]

Two steps forward one step backwards

By |December 29th, 2014|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

The defeat yesterday at Reading marked the end of the NCFC Christmas fixtures. Giving us a full house. Win, Loss and a Draw. In years gone by that would have been regarded as a good return. However when you are playing catch up and with the strongest squad (so some believe) 4 points is not good enough. In the cold light of day this squad isn't the best in the [...]

Grant Holt finally says good-bye

By |December 12th, 2014|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

Saturday will see Carrow Rd finally get the chance to say thanks and good-bye to Grant Holt. Our old number nine is arguably the best captain/goalscorer fans have seen for many many years. For me Grant Holt is one of three pivotal people responsible for the rise of NCFC from the depths of League One to mid table in the Premiership. The other two being Paul Lambert and David McNally. Those [...]

2 Defeats and 1 Sacking

All in the space of 7 days the fans have started to doubt the wisdom from the board over the Adams appointment. To be fair doubts have been raised long before this. Middlesboro away was by all accounts another shocker to forget about very quickly. Following this no show from the players the Carrow Rd PR department went into overdrive. Players and management staff promising a performance to right the [...]

Five points from four games

Not the points haul most City fans were expecting I guess. Fulham  without a manager (at the time) seemed like our best bet to break the Fulham away hoodoo. However it was the same old story at Craven Cottage, promised so much but in the end nil points. Leeds at home I'm told ( I was away in Gibraltar for a few days so missed the game) was a poor [...]

His feedback from the meeting follows, many thanks Chris.....     Season Ticket Renewals - Currently stands at 22,000, with around 15,000 on the interest free direct debit scheme - whilst this means that the club doesn't get its money up front they accept that if people had to pay [...]

International Breaks Love them or Hate them

By |October 13th, 2014|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

For me it's hate them. The England qualifying group is about as appealing as a free ticket to Portman Road. In all honesty England are at best a top 20 team......just. Crowds at Wembley back this up, so the FA plan to take International games on the road from 2017 makes sense. Moving onto the football that REALLY matters and NCFC. The last 3 results have seen, one win, one [...]

Adam Drury…………………..City Legend

By |September 25th, 2014|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

This week saw a City legend retire at the tender age of 36. I don't throw the word "Legend" about very often but in the case of Mr Adam Drury it is wholly appropriate. When he signed him from Peterborough for a paltry (these days)  £500,000 who knew the impact he would have on the club. One of my favorite memories of Adam Drury was the last game away game of the [...]

Brentford on a Tuesday night is not that appealing to be fair. However if you throw in a couple of beers with the Chelmsford Canaries (Essex Canaries to some) at Waterloo station, and a terrace ticket at Brentford to watch City play. This then becomes a lot more attractive journey. Over 1600 canary fans crammed into the away end. 1000 in the terrace and 600 seated above. The first half [...]

Away win in Wales, next up Brentford

By |September 15th, 2014|Categories: Forces2Canaries|

First game this season that I didn't go to and guess what, it was a cracker so I'm told. Well it was from 45 mins onwards if you are a City fan. Cardiff last season we dominated from start to finish but lost. This time with 25 shots at goal and 4 goals it appears that the Neil Adams style of play is producing the goods.....so far.

AFC Bournemouth are the latest visitors to Fortress Carrow Road this afternoon. Under the stewardship of Eddie Howe his team will make it tough for Neil Adams side today.

If offered that at the start of the season, most people would have taken that tally gladly. What makes it even more satisfying is the opposition of  Watford, Blackburn and least of all 1p5wich (more on them later) were meant to be tough games. The fact City ran out comfortable winners in two of those games and controlled the third, with only a one goal lead speaks volumes. Moving onto [...]

With the championship season well underway Norwich City host Watford in their second league game. Fans will be looking for an improvement on last Sunday's live Sky match at Wolves. That was certainly one to forget and fell into the "Bad day at the office" bracket. The travelling faithful had hoped for three points and a good attacking performance.

Going out of Carrow Rd is Joe Royle, who after 6 weeks received an offer from Everton "which he couldn't turn down". I'm sure the blue brigade over the border will be having a laugh at [...]
