It's barm so STFU.
Yes, went down on the special train from Picc, think it was during the escort from the station to the ground that the Vikings chant started, the film had been on the telly earlier that week. IIRC that was Kiddo's first league goal since his signing from Arsenal, his partnership with Royle had been slow to take off. That game was also the start of a long unbeaten league run that lasted into February and took us into title contention.

I was there. I was living down South at the time and had to make my own arrangements with service trains. Remember I mistakenly went in 'their' end and asked a copper if it was OK for me to walk around the ground to the City end. He said I could, and so Carrow Road is one of very few grounds where I can say I've had a walk around the pitch. What I didn't appreciate was that when I got to the other end I had to climb over a ****ing big fence. Luckily I had lubricated myself in the legendary Plasterers' Arms with two pints of Tolly Cobbold Old Ale (a lovely drink, long gone, which was about 6%.) and so I had the bottle to do it.

Good game. and on the way back to the smoke reps from the two supporters clubs came round the train to recruit members. Nice touch, not the usual thing in those days.
