It was like watching a team from the 1960's, lobbing the ball forwards in the hope of getting a knock down.  Fair do's we struggled to deal with it at times, but thankfully there won't be many teams that play like that this season.

Re: TWTD

It is the longest gap between the two games that I can remember

Hopefully that grubby little club will be heading for relegation by the time they drag their manure smelling carcasses up the A140

One of their lot has written an “ offbeat” report which included the line - “It is nevertheless strange to find the seats all around mine to be occupied ”

Re: TWTD

They're bottom of the league, playing awful football with an unproven manager and a strike force literally from league 2, 15k attendances and havent beaten their rivals in 10 years nearly.

Yet theres more pessimism on here. Go figure.

Yet they're only 2 points behind us, and after an even first half, dominated the game for large spells of the 2nd.

I think the point is that some people are completely delusional if they think we are still streets ahead of them.

Yes we hate Ipswich. But if your going to laugh at them for being so poor, you have to admit the joke is on us too.

Norwich and Ipswich are both similarly sized clubs. If we are still in the championship in 10 years time, our attendances will be no different to theirs currently.

We've enjoyed the recent supremacy over them. Just like they did over us in the late 90s to mid 00's. But we're both now back on par, and both underachieving.

Re: TWTD

You do realise the season is only 6 games in, don't you? Talking about league positions/being this or that far ahead or behind is bonkers. One win (or defeat) changes your position by c10 places at this stage.

If you're going to claim that they dominated the second half, then we dominated the first.

Re: TWTD

Sorry Lincoln but that attendance bit is simply untrue. Go back to our league one season 09/10 we averaged 24. 6k that season to Ipswich 20k in the league above.

If you really believe we are on par with them then you are in a good position to capitalise as not many agree with you (nationwide) for example

Norwich to be relegated most bookmakers are round the 9/1 mark currently. Compared with 1/50 to be relegated.

Ipswich to stay up around 11/8 compared with 8/15 to go down

With regards to the game Ipswich it always makes me laugh how a general consensus seems to be that "form goes out of the window in a derby" until of course we fail to beat them that is - in which case its suddenly a certain indicator that we are as bad as them.

That league one attendance thing was impressive, but it wouldn’t have lasted another season if we’d not gone up. Also if we’d had 10 years or more in the champ and then relegated to league one, there would be absolutely no way we’d have achieved those figures.

Re: TWTD

Before we were relegated in '09 we'd been in the 2nd tier since relegation in the mid-90s, with the exception of one season in the Prem in 04/05 (when we always looked like going straight back down).

Re: TWTD

We are 6 games into the season, after 10 games most clubs will remain about the same position throughout the season. Let's see who's where, at that stage - Middlesboro,  Reading, QPR, and Wigan. Whilst those down the road have - Hull, Brentford, Bolton and Birmingham.
Must admit, looks like we've go the harder fixtures.

Re: TWTD

ICF;

The two seasons before promotion in 03/04 we had a run to the play off final, and another season finishing 8th. Those three seasons, along with a 4th in the premiership, and a 5th season as favourites in the championship caused the growth in our attendance.

Attendances we're starting to fall after that, albeit slowly. The relegation actually helped to stop the slide, and install a new sense of optimism at the prospect of a season winning most games. That helped the attendances, and then with winning runs, Lambert and the feel good factor, Attendances were back up.

Last season and this season has been mediocre. Attendances are starting to drop, albeit slowly again. If this season goes the same way as last, expect to see 23-24k attendances in March and April for some games.

So we agree, we're pretty evenly matched.
