ACN/Barclay End Norwich – plans for Watford

14/09/21

Saturday feels massive, so it deserves a massive display of colour for our team. Find out how you can help.....

Many of you have been in contact with Along Come Norwich and Barclay End Norwich of late, asking when the normality of flags, surfer banners and full on tifos can return to the Barclay/Carrow Road.

While we’d love for that to happen, and we had some really big plans for when the team and supporters came back together again, it unfortunately doesn’t seem to be feasible right now.

The club have taken a stance to be more cautious than some of our Premier League counterparts with regards to fan-led displays. We acknowledge the club’s views and continue to talk to them about the parameters we are working within this season, in an effort to try and create the best displays possible. We appreciate and share people’s frustration around this, but acknowledge the club need to take difficult decisions with everyone’s safety in mind.

So….. let’s focus on what we can control. Saturday’s game against Watford is big, we all know that. Given the magnitude of the occasion, we want the boys to be welcomed by the best display of yellow and green possible.

Which is why we’re asking all fans to bring their scarf and to hold it aloft as the players emerge from the tunnel, and during the pre-match ‘On The Ball City’.

Many of you will remember Wigan away in 2019 when we did just that. To this day it remains one of the best visual displays we’ve been a part of, so let’s just imagine how much better it will look with four walls of yellow and green at Carrow Road doing the same.

Thanks in advance for your support. Let’s paint the ground yellow (and green).

Beyond that, more importantly we’d urge everyone to continue to provide your vocal backing to the boys. They need us more than ever for the challenges ahead. The pandemic has taught us football without fans is nothing, that as supporters we can create the edge that spurs our team onto victory. Let’s be loud and proud for the full 90 minutes on Saturday.

ONE CITY STRONG

  1. Good idea and will post to FB as many like myself were not aware of the ‘Bring your scarves day’.

So Norwich visited an Arsenal in crisis, an Arsenal who hadn't scored yet and an Arsenal who were actually bottom of the league. Maddie Mackenzie muses on the inevitable.

The boys are joined by Ffion Thomas to chat Arsenal, what needs to change and favourite away day pies....
