I think we all know that next season is going to be very different from this one.
Even the most positive amongst the Canary nation will surely not expect City to win another league title, although I imagine that one or two of us might have a wager to that effect, just for a bit of fun, eh?!
Over in the Vital Norwich forum there’s been a bit of discussion about what we’ll miss and what we won’t, once we start playing Premier League football again.
It’s all there in a thread started by forum user, Forever yellow76…
Really looking forward to prem football again, more media coverage, something you dont get much of in the lower divisions even if you win the league!
I’m looking forward also to getting away from the horrendous weekly bad officiating, I know it happens in all leagues but surely with VAR next season it should be much better. It seemed as the season went on (maybe my desperation for us to cross the finishing line) the worse it got, we was on the end of a lot of laughable decisions, like the Fletcher handball which im still salty about seeing as he ran off like he had won the world cup knowing full well what he had just done!
Something I will miss though, is the amount of back to back games in the Champ, always one a few days around the corner whatever the last result was! Also the introduction of sky red button games was great too, thank you father in law for your skygo password????????.
Ill also miss us not being on sky tv anywhere as much, we seemed to be on every game towards season end, sadly im in London so a season ticket not possible for me, hopefully get to a lot of away games though.
What will you miss or look forward too next season……..
Here’s a few responses:
Miss winning (hopefully can draw some still) looking forward to finishing at least 17th
I am looking forwards to seeing us prove a few of the doubters wrong when we put in some great performances.
I am looking forwards to going to some grounds I have never been to .
I am looking forwards to seeing the profile of our club and fine city enhanced.
I am not looking forwards to having to watch other teams players who think they are gods who have right to win every game.
I will miss seeing more youth players coming through into the 1st team as I have no doubt that if we were still in the championship we would have seen Idah, Power, Payne, Thomas or Jones involved. I can’t see DF involving these chaps as much next season unless they have a brilliant preseason and push their way in.
It was interesting to see Jones travel to games with the 1st team after his links with a move away.
I will miss winning and playing games close together as although not so good for the players it is great for us fans.
I will also miss singing we are top of the league.
I always watch MOTD and MOTD2 anyway but not looking forward to SHS
( slap head shearer ) slagging us off and predicting us as relegation fodder.
I am looking forward to going to new grounds.
There are still 4 old grounds plus spuds and wet spam grounds I have yet
to go to. Hope to reduce that list to 3.
I have mixed feeling about games being reduced from 46 to 38 but always unhappy about long spells without a game.
I looking forward to what may be my 50 th year of being a season ticket holder of which 12 years were being an exile.
I know what you mean about sky and train tickets, same happened to me three times this season! Very annoying as the train company wont help either, very frustrating! And yes i much prefer quest tv coverage than MOTD.
So there you have it, winning so often, drop of a hat game changes for TV broadcast that mean train tickets aren’t valid and all the other things that go along with Premier League football from a fan that actually attends football matches type point of view.
Got your own thoughts on the subject? Then get over to the forum.
