norwich stadium

We were staying for the weekend so it was a walk into the city centre post-match amongst home fans starting to fear the worst for their survival hopes. This was helped by the bright sunshine and mild (for January) weather. As the players departed the ground many of them stopped for photographs with fans and engaged in brief conversation. Pub-wise, you're spoilt for choice. Which I thought was decent. Also, Norwich were the table toppers and appeared to be in good form, so I was expecting a decent game. We were all over them in the first half, could have got more than the solitary goal, but the second half they came back.

From there it was about a mile to walk to the stadium.

The no-nonsense classics are of course in addition to regular “Matchday specials” which are more adventurous and vary from game to game such a Sausage and Bean, and Chicken Tikka. Official Programme; £3.50 Y'Army Fanzine £1. And so it's back to the drawing board for the Reds. 2. When the fixtures are  announced I always look out for grounds I have not been to and when Norwich away was scheduled for Boxing Day I was happy enough. Construction began in 1938 on the site of an old brickworks, but the small section of land left, once the car parks and stands had been … Before the game I went to a Wetherspoons which is situated at the Riverside complex amongst some shops and restaurants, and about a ten minute walk to the ground. Sportspark has Norfolk's tallest indoor climbing wall, two 25m swimming pools, the Soccerpark, athletics track and our two impressive indoor arenas. We were kept behind afterwards but then made our way back to the coach and got away quickly and were soon back in Ipswich. As a reasonably large stand, it is usually shared with some sections of Norwich’s support, with the standard allocation of around 2,500 tickets located towards The Barclay Stand taking up less around a third of the available space. I met friends on holiday who were season ticket holders at Norwich, so decided to go along to this match. The first half was awful where Norwich took the lead through Cantwell. We walked to the Chapelfield shopping centre and on spotting a Wagamama upgraded our usual pre match burger. The first impression was that the Hawthorns has changed a lot in the last 40 years. The stewards were helping in helping me find my seat. If you ignore all those wonderful pubs it should take you no more than 10 minutes to walk to the ground. The Geoffrey Watling City stand on one side is a bit smaller than the other three stands and looks a bit out of place. The first half Rotherham seemed to have the perfect away tactic of getting the ball up to the big striker who was winning most and bringing his teammates into play to frustrate Norwich. That’s much better! We went straight into the concourse and had a couple of drinks and a pie.

Toilets were ‘bog’ standard. As Wolves fans, we're somewhat used to having our dreams crushed….but there is a pace and quality to this current squad that exceeds anything we have been able to put-together at this level previously. I continued my journey home the following morning after a hearty breakfast and arrived home at midday. Being shoved up one corner of the Jarrold Stand means as away fans you are competing directly with the ‘Barclay End’, a particularly raucous section of which never stopped singing all game. I made my way to the South Stand where all the Away fans were housed and had a coffee inside the ground whilst making my way to my seat.

… Quite simply, i've never been to Carrow Road before.

I took the A47 ring road to the A146 and then parked next to others at the side of the road near the junction with the A1054. I thought the ground was really well designed and I liked the shape of it all as well as the lighting. 0.00. Make a weekend of it and the journey home doesn’t seem quite as bad if the result doesn’t go your way. Carrow Road is a new ground for me which is always an attraction. But it was a trip to another new ground so I was looking forward to that.

No issues with the stewards. The copybook was blotted slightly by the playing of goal music though. We had beaten Preston 4 -0 at the Liberty in our last game and I was sure we could get some goals but the loss of Rangel Angel to injury and Fede Bessonne to Leeds during the summer left our defence looking a bit dodgy with 4 centre halves across the back.

The game itself was a bit of a let down with Spurs controlling the game but not creating too much in the first half. What better way to spend my Valentine’s/Birthday weekend!? My first ever visit to Carrow Road and I was really looking forward to it. I had some banter with the home fans who were a friendly bunch. I was wet and fed up and we hadn’t even left South Wales. The atmosphere was electric and it was absolute carnage when we scored as you can imagine. Unlike a lot of slightly old grounds I didn't find it all run down. Aside from a couple of half chances for Benik Afobe, we created very little all afternoon, and but for some excellent goalkeeping from Tomasz Kuszczak, it could have been worse, the stand-in keeper denying Grabban and Gary Hooper with smart saves. Opening at 12 noon on Saturdays, this family-friendly pub, offers a range of drinks. Parking was easy after reading reviews on here. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking? Parking seemed plentiful in the area and we were parked next to a car park between the railway lines and the Royal Mail sorting office. However the last of the single carriageway roads on the Norwich are about to be widened, so hopefully this will make it quicker for future trips. The ground is well signposted from the A11 and A47. I travelled by train and arrived in Norwich around lunchtime on the day of the game. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be): Living and domestic arrangements, plus being an expat Aussie whose mates support big London clubs (or dismiss football altogether) mean that I’m not able to get to as many games as I would like to, which means that for away games I have to rely on a little bit of luck to get a ticket from the small allocations of tickets for non-season ticket holders. I set off from Barnsley at 8.15am and arrived in Norwich at 12.30pm. Find train times, prices and book tickets with Trainline.

3. A ten minute walk back to me car surrounded by thousands of other fans was quite entertaining, listening to all the discussions about the game. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out: Excellent. Many of the seat numbers had been erased meaning that I had to work out our seats from checking the adjacent numbers. The away fans are allocated northern end of the Jarrold Stand which has plenty of turnstiles so there were no queues and plenty of leg room once at your seat. We arrived outside Carrow Road at 2.15pm. Norwich took 2,700 fans and with a home sell out it turned the match into an event. Carrow Road is a football stadium with a capacity of 26,034 and is home to Norwich City football club. There was one “official” a bald guy in a green coloured suit jacket who was particularly obnoxious and was mouthing obscenities to Swans fans from the safety of the pitch side and giving the “come on” to a few of our hot heads. Norwich, however, move up to eighth place just five points adrift off the play-offs. I was looking forward to visiting Carrow Road as its a ground I've not visited before and Norwich a team in form I knew would give us a good game. 52.6272345,1.2607785.
What it was I am not sure but seeing that Sky tv had changed the fixture to a 12:45 kick off was not enough to put me off visiting the lovely city of Norwich. Not a criticism, just something I noticed! Norwich were much the better side over the 90 minutes, and 2-0 to the home side was a very fair reflection of the game. Norwich is a lovely city, Carrow Road us a cracking stadium and the Norwich fans were welcoming, friendly and de finitely helped make the whole day a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The only problem I had was forgetting a raincoat and getting a bit wet in the first half. I stumbled across a crowd of fans from both teams who were waiting for the team coaches to arrive. Carrow Road is a high grade ground with an impressive presence. Went to a couple of pubs, notably The Belgian Monk and then walked to the ground which was about 20 mins. No further information is available at this time, as to when this might take place. The Club I found to be particularly friendly and relaxed.

I went to the Tombstone part of town near the cathedral. As we had arrived quite late the ground was filling up when we arrived and by the time we got into the away stand the ground was virtually full with a crowd of about 22 thousand. It’s been modernised in the past 20 years and apart from the small stand opposite us it’s a good Championship Stadium. The 80 year span without us beating them on their home soil continues.
