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 [...]

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. 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 [...]
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. The squad stayed up North in preparation for the Bolton game. I and Chris Saddleton travelled up to the game as did Gary Wenn, Mark Peak and Paul Myhill alongside 1,500 [...]
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 away) derby games can throw up the odd result occasionally. If NCFC play as they have recently they will be far too much for the bottom team in this league. Onwards [...]
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. We have averaged 1500 away fans so far this season, so with 2700 you will have a fair few who don't watch City away from home very often hence the negative [...]
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. Think we may see a back four of Aarons Klose Hanley Godfrey starting the game. Good test for our squad to see if they can cope. I'm going for another draw [...]
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.
