I Hate You All

Hey Mona! Ooo Mona! Ever since I first came to FCR and stood on the River End with my Dad I’ve noticed the existence of a particular kind of Norwich fan, that fan is the moaner.  It’s quite possible that other clubs have them as well, I wouldn’t know, but if they do I doubt they’re as whingey as our version. Or as ill informed. When I got a bit older and started going to games with my mates one of the old paper Norwich fanzines, either...

Story of a Match: 12/13 Spurs (A)

Story of a Match: 12/13 Fulham (A)

Daniel Swift Gibbs 7 years ago, on a scorching hot day in West London, Norwich’s Premier League dream unfolded around them with a dismal 6-0 defeat to Fulham on the last day of the season. Chris Hughton’s first game in charge, on the first day of this season had an unfortunate parallel. Coming in with a mandate to strengthen our leaky defense of last year, we clearly didn’t get off to the best of starts. Unlike that game, of course,...
