With no ‘Mystic Manson’, a guest took his seat alongside Jack and Chris to delve into some Norwich City evening football in hope and prayer that they could record a win. Jack documents his journey from house to Carrow Road, with sandwiches and scarfs being honourable mentions in the video.
First ever podcast guest Joe Capps joined the guys in stadia to consume a dose of the jubilation. The contrast between emotions at half time, whereby the boys stand frustrated and annoyed figures to Jack’s monologue whereby his delight is contagious is strikingly evident.
This was a timely and needed win for Norwich.
As the club told supporters to ‘sit down or get out’ in order to comply with safety regulations, those in the Barclay responded with a predictably adverse reaction to the requests and defied warnings from the club and the Safety Advisory Group(SAG). It provokes a long lasting debate surrounding the match day atmosphere at Carrow Road.
Talk of safe standing seems a long term aspiration, but Carrow Road needs noise now.
Singing sections, flags and a desire to contribute are all short term necessities to creating a more harmonious relationship between those on the pitch and the punters. A shift in psychology is required too. No longer must supporters expect City to win every game.
Whatever the remedy, let’s pray for a solution and hope a reduction in capacity isn’t enforced.
