Are YOU Going? Norwich Return Nears Sell-out!

Are YOU Going? Norwich Return Nears Sell-out!



The tastiest fixture remaining this season, against our near but not-so-dear neighbours Norwich City, is fast-becoming literally the hottest ticket in town!

Sales moved into their last thousand within the last 24-hours, news which fully vindicates Robbie Cowling`s decision not to allow the visiting side an extra allocation despite their demands earlier this month.

City's return in January re-lights this season`s ongoing feud between the East Anglian rivals which began unexpectedly at the start of the season when Colchester recorded an astonishing 7-1 at Carrow Road.

That result saw ex-boss Paul Lambert inadvertently advertise himself as the opposition`s new manager - I think you know the rest!

It`s a game for which the word hyperbole might easily have been invented and yet ironically is no hard-sell. To anyone without a ticket… what are you still doing here!

Book now: it`ll be a New Year cracker!

"Sales moved into their last thousand within the last 24-hours, news which fully vindicates Robbie Cowling`s decision not to allow the visiting side an extra allocation despite their demands earlier this month." I think that you will find that a lot of them are being bought by Norwich fans

There'll be thousands of City fans there, so I'm not surprised it is nearly sold-out.

...And if like I've heard some say they sing, celebrate or wear Norwich colours will be quickly ejected....
