Used to be always frightened playing Leicester when Heskey was around.

Don't get me started on that bastard Steve Guppy. Do not get me started!

We have Steve Guppy training our wingers. And Connor Wickham for some reason.

I don't think they are. They have the club world cup.

I recall him saying the same when they played Blackburn away in the semi a couple of years back (when it was Martin O'Neill's Claret & Blue Army) when they got to Wembley but lost in the final.

Tbh I'd have expected them to out-sing you last night. Not as a knock against Norwich, but more the fact that a) they had 3000ish, b) tickets were cheaper and c) a more hardcore element were gonna travel as opposed to those making the league trip who probably will be a bit less vocal. Cup matches usually always ensure a good hardcore following since so many people will not bother with the game for a number of reasons (midweek, length of travel meaning trains after game are impossible). You'd have comfortably outsang them in the reverse fixture. Away fans have the benefit of being in one section so there's consistent noise, whereas home fans are spread around the ground and mixed between vocal supporters and as you said 'non-supporting folk' there simply to watch the game and join in sparesely song wise.
Fifteen minutes is a bit of exaggeration, although it would feel like that, repeating the same line over and over again. I'd say something like five to ten minutes. Still, it was rather impressive support.

You would expect the away aupport to be more vocal in any situation, but we were especially quiet last night due to the sheer mass of non supporters. If the Villa fans were quiet then chances were that the entire crowd was silent. Poor stuff.

The reason that there were so many casuals last night was because Norwich are traditionally shit in the cups (that was our best cup run since 1992. Twenty years!) and the majority of season ticket holders tend to not bother going. That poor attitude from our supporters is a reflection of the clubs woeful approach to cup competitions over the past two decades. Even last night we fielded what was essentially a reserve side. Some things never change.

I do live in hope that one day we will take the cups seriously again.

Nope. We're playing Club World Cup tomorrow. If we advance to the final, we're gonna play it on Sunday, which is the 16th of this month. No EPL game for us this week. Would have loved to see us get the momentum going plus whether will be back again or not
