We’re reviving our ‘My NCFC’ section for the summer, where we interview Vital Norwich members and learn a little bit more about our fellow City supporters.
First up is snifferxxx:
How did you become a City fan?
Having moved to the region eight years ago, through my company I had hospitality for some home games and got the bug. My children, both girls, then started to accompany me to odd games and four seasons ago we applied for three season tickets as the girls wanted to go on a regular basis.
Three seasons ago we got little choice so had three tickets in the Norwich and Peterborough right at the front so for a season we were drenched with even a small downpour but the bug had hold of us.
At the start of last season we had a chance to move with movers and shakers so the girls are now along with friends higher up in the N&P while I have have moved into the Cathedral.
What/when was your first game?
Our first fixture as a family was the home game against Blackpool in 2008. We also saw all the home friendlies leading up to the season’s start.
How many games do you get to?
Since we have had season tickets we have been to every home game including cup games, and have also been to a handful of away games.
What is your most memorable moment?
The most memorable moment for me was the win over Wolves and Leroy Litaís performance that night, but also wondering at the same time how the team made up of many loanies did not really celebrate when we scored – signs perhaps of things to come later in the season!
Which (if any) Norwich players have you met?
For the two seasons we have been going at some point we have met all the players. The girls have had photos with all of them and I have chatted to some and we have also been to some of the organised events where you can meet and mingle with them, even more so the first season.
Who is your favourite current player?
I have always liked Doc, but the Girls like Luke (Daley) and Tom (Adeyemi).
Who is your favourite all-time player?
For me as fairly new to all things canary I would go for Huckerby.
What are your hopes for the coming season?
If Iím not setting my sights too high. I would like to make the playoffs although automatic promotion would be excellent and who knows looking at the early signings Paul Lambert has made this may not be such a long shot!
What is your all time Canary eleven?
I donít think I currently have enough history with the club to pick an eleven but I must say I am aware of some great players that have been at Carrow road over the years.
What is the best thing about being a Norwich City supporter?
The best thing for me would have to be the people that I have met through my short time at the Club including a big mention to the Guys that I have met from the Vital forum.
If you could change one thing about the club, what would it be?
If I could change one thing it would be to clear all the debts at the club and have in place a shrewd benefactor with lots of money that wanted the best for the club and allow our current CEO to get on with it!
