Once again, Norwich City have announced that there has been a take up of over 20,000 season tickets but for the first time since relegation to League One, season tickets are actually available to buy, as reported this morning by the EDP

There has been a cap of around 22,000 season tickets in recent years and a waiting list has been in operation for those wanting a regular seat at Carrow Road. I know from friends who have been on the list over the last few years that if you paid your refundable £50 deposit then the chances are that you`d be on the list for a year or so before getting to the top.

However, it now seems that if you`re not on the list and suddenly fancy a ticket then you could walk into the ticket office today and buy one over the counter.

After the last couple of seasons, it`s obvious that there would be a decline in regular numbers with Twitter being awash with people “threatening” to not renew and especially after the turgid offerings we have had to watch this term.

As I alluded to last week, around me there is plenty of loud, constant moaning going on which is doing my head in and I assume it`s similar in other parts of the ground. I should also point out that just because I don`t talk constantly throughout the game about how bad every single sideways pass is and I don`t deride every decision made, that I am happy with what I`m seeing, because I`m not.

We have to hope that what we are seeing on the pitch improves next season and I know many of you feel that it won`t. I don`t apologise for being optimistic but as I hope you also know, I am a realist and will call it if it doesn`t start at a gallop next August.

What we see on the pitch and what happens in the ticket office are connected, obviously, and that`s why our old mates at Portman Road are suffering with low attendances (shame). If Norwich City do not want to be in the same boat then things need to drastically improve because I don`t think that the blood pressure of some of those around me could take another season like 2017/18.

If you`re in the market and want to see what we`ve been on about then get yourself down to the ticket office and take the plunge.

  • I am not sure if the figures have been released by the club after another deadline ?
    However it would appear that if fans are like myself and although thinking hard about renewing
    come to conclusion it may as well be at lowest price and as such renew in February and clouds the judgement with 15 games ( third of season ) remaining.
    Bearing in mind how bad it has been on the pitch since the February deadline,
    P. 9. W. 1. D. 5. L.3. F. 11. A 16. Pts. 8. it would be very interesting to see how many more fans fed up with FTF ( Farke’s turgid football ) would have not renewed.

    I listened to canary call on i player as at match on Monday and for once there were realistic callers
    that even the moronic Butler could not try to make look stupid and argue false optimism against.
    One fan said about next season ‘ give it 8 / 10 games and then see whether action is required ‘. I agree in principle but having just written off 2 seasons with parachute money can we afford to
    write another one off after nearly quarter season if it turns out to be as much as a disaster as the last 9 games. After 50 years of constant support if things remain as they are I will think much harder next February as I am sure many thousands of die hard supporters will do and it will not be long before the only difference between Carrow and Portaloo Roads on match day will be the colour of the mass areas of empty seats.
