Norwich Scum

They bleat on about what a lovely community club they are and call us every derogatory name under the sun and yet one of the cowards has used a blade on a Leeds fans neck, absolutely disgraceful and could have been fatal. I hope they find the little turd and deal with him accordingly.

This has nothing to do with an individual football club, this is something that that could happen with any club. Its the individual that is the issue not football ?
I used to go to Norwich matches when Ipswich were away from home when i lived in East Anglia. I found no difference between either club. Both great clubs, with great fans. I personally would like to see Norwich get up through the play off's due to that.

I just don't get the "scum" comments about Norwich as a club at all. Rivalry is one thing but this is nonsense. Yes this one individual can be classed as "scum". For me there are good and bad people everywhere, just find the good one's and you'll be ok.

It was the individual I was referring to, he's scum, and he's a Norwich fan so Norwich scum makes perfect sense. Read around some forums etc and look after the utter dogs abuse those inbreds throw at us and have done for years. I think you're a bit misguided and out of touch.

I think the boys from their snake pit ( apply named for these scum), had better have eyes in the back of their heads up at Elland Road, because I don’t think the Leeds hard core are going to take this assault lying down.

I looked on the Norwich forum around ten days ago and someone said I don't care if Ipswich finish second no one remembers a team that finishes second 🤔 I think on this occasion he is possibly wrong 🤣🤣

No real NCFC fan would inflict actual bodily harm with a bladed weapon on a rival supporter least of all one where their fans have something of a fearsome reputation and (could) overrun them without question. Read through this earlier on Pink 'Un message board and even their own fans were incredulous to the validity of actual events.

someone suggested it were a rogue element inserted into the scene with no real actual affiliation to either sets of fans or club names, guess in attempt to discredit one or the other. After so many years of following action unable to ever quite recall City fans using lethal objects to attempt actual wounding on others. It's possible or likely some projectile was thrown and caught the Leeds fan and drew blood from the individual, but (they) using knives and cutting weapons on peoples necks, sorry it's just too misleading to properly comprehend.

hope the truth comes out from this as will no doubt be proved right but only to reiterate in all years of keeping view on the game it's just unheard of. And chanting Turkish taunts also, that's just not them. They got no reason for it, there's just no need to incite the other. They may provide verbal insults to us and they do but the level of agression suggested here, it's either just false or went off on some tangent someplace away from actual fact or truth.

The last game I attended at carrot road, Town fans ( of which me and Mike were included ), were quietly queuing to get into the rear of the rail station,( deemed a safe exit by the police, and we were herded into this area), were attacked by a group of scum fans brandishing scaffold poles. The policewoman who stood there “ monitoring” the subdued Town fans as we filed into the rear of the station ( we’d lost to scum again, so nothing to sing about and we were far from boyant), was facing us. The group of scum fans stood armed with scaffold pokes behind, challenging Town fans and made a move to charge us. One or two Town responded, at which point the policewoman screamed at US to stay back, as she deployed her baton . The vision was one of a group of scum fans brandishing scaffold poles, “ led” by a copper brandishing a baton, in a threatening motion toward a queue of largely deflated fans. The stupid cow did NOTHING to confront the attackers stood directly behind her. I wish to this day I’d taken a picture of it and posted it on social media. It would have gone viral. But in truth I was expecting to hit by a scaffold pole!

Norfolk police are just a scum as their local football club’s fanbase They treat Town fans like a bunch of animals EVERY Derby fixture, and I’ll never go to that sh*t hole again. They do little to actually segregate fans of make any effort to keep scum fans well away from the away fans.

I’m not surprised one but a Leeds fan has been attacked outside the ground. Why haven’t the police segregated the sets of fans better? They soon arrested the scum fans so it must have been outside the stadium and not away from the ground.

Norwich ARE scum!

I remember it well, part of me wanted the little bastards to actually get through to us, and yet some still defend them but until you witness it first hand I guess it's hard to accept they are indeed scum, some decent ones no doubt but not as squeaky clean as some think.

I think their fan base mentality is amply illustrated by the name they’ve given to section of the ground - the snake pit. I’m struggling to find anything similar at other grounds ….

Now its the Norfolk police that are scum too. Are you seriously for real ?
I guess the Suffolk police are perfect.
I've had a few occasions where something like this has happened at football grounds over the years.
I remember it at Easter Road where St Mirren fans were surrounded by skinheads. They were scum as all good decent Hibs fans like Marko etc would agree. It doesn't mean I call Hibs scum or Edinburgh police scum etc.

The clue as to why the policewoman drew her baton is in your sentence " One or two Town responded" ?? The idea that the policewoman was anti Ipswich is just as laughable as your ridiculous post.

Every club has its element of these characters and its probably the same percentage across all clubs. I can guess that a Norwich fan could probably give you plenty of examples of Ipswich scum element ??

Unless you’ve experienced it like Mike and I have (on EVERY occasion at Norwich’s ground), then I’d suggest you know nothing VR and it is your post that is ridiculous. Spouting an opinion about something you know clearly NOTHING about!

I was persuaded to go to the derby game after a few years of not going precisely because of the treatment metered out to Town fans by the police up there. I reasoned it won’t happen again, I’ll give it another go. But no, the same old sh*t happened. The Norwich fans are a disgrace ( a bunch of thugs frankly), and the police do treat Town fans with little respect. So they can shove it. I’ll never go there again.

Well I do hate to tar an entire fanbase with one dumbass like this, but just like at stories over the years with Norwich and its not totally out of bounds to say bad things about them. Are their some decent Norwich fans? Sure. Do we have some thug like fans in our own fanbase? Sure are somewhere.

But Norwich does seem to have more than a lot of clubs, that's not a rival fan talking, that's just reality.

Whilst I am sure not every Norwich fan is scum (we all know we have more than our fair share of idiots as well), I too hate going there and was quite pleased I couldn't get a ticket to the last encounter. Over the years, my daughter and I have been abused, had things thrown at us, been constantly herded to/from the station, been attacked as Hallam says on that road between and the police have been completely and utterly pathetic on every single occasion. There was also once even a fight amongst p*ssed up ipswich fans in the ground that the police decided to send in a female copper in to deal with. I have been up and down the country even during the worst days of hooliganism in the 70's and norwich has always been up there with the worst. Other than millwall, West Ham at the old upton park were however totally the worst.... now many of them are really scum...

There's a 10 page feature on the Pink Un regards this you can wade through to ascertain further information or an attempt to find out the whole truth as to what occurred but even they aren't entirely sure of the actual events surrounding the situation.

Think best last word on this issue by now but what you can gather is that three men or individuals have been by now taken into custody, there were no knives or stabbing instruments involved, the truth appears a punch was aimed at someone and an object thrown causing a cut that drew blood. The idea any City fan went with intent towards a Leeds one with an open blade was fanciful from the start if not absurd but this damn thing originated from social media where truth and misdirection is often lost at many a turn and instead of providing a clear and concise explanation, got mixed up in a sea of uncertainty where seems no-one can provide a definitive answer to real events.

Can only hope this unfortunate episode does not infringe on the return game at Elland Road in a short time and supporters can see the situation for what it is rather than seeking out (unnecessary) retribution. I don't like them and wish them every failure but would hope at least for a fair enterprising game where "football" is the only winner rather than events away from it.

Surely if nobody has a definitive answer then nobody can say what was or wasn't used ? Three people in custody for a punch ? Hmmmm, don't think so

This is post today, on twtd , by Clive Baker ( ex Town player )


" Seems like tensions are quite high off the back of the incidents in Norwich on Sunday. 3 arrests of norwich fans, Leeds supporter getting his neck cut apparently from something thrown at him, classy norwich supporters singing songs about Galatasaray.

Unsurprisingly a lot of p1ssed off Leeds fans and a lot of norwich supporters apparently sh1tting it. LUFC have put a statement out asking people to behave, Police presence has been beefed up and EDP put an article out earlier about it. Pink Un has a thread about unwanted tickets. Seems a lot of Norwich fans have decided against going altogether and the tickets have apparently got into the hands of some Leeds supporters in the away end.

8pm on a Thursday night as well after a good few hours on the p1ss for many people I imagine. What could go wrong. Genuinely do hope any innocent bystanders don't get caught up in anything like that but does sound like a recipe for disaster".


The norwich fans aren't so hard now are they !
And they've probably made the task 1000 times more difficult for their own team tomorrow night. I repeat, a section of norwich fans are a piece work. Don't forget they've even stormed their own pitch in the past and attacked one of their managers. They're not a nice fan base.

Well have to hope our residential Town financial guru has a gander at them and tells us in plain language what it means. I hope that shell is turning full circle on them. They’ve given us a hard time for two decades now.

Funny how the brown stuff hits the fan as soon as PL parachute money disappears isn’t it. Not so well run after all it seems.

Edit: where have you seen this meltdown Mike?

Not sure why they have plaster formal club accounts with loads of pictures. They’re so bloody tinpot!

I really don’t understand this obsession with another football club albeit our local rivals. I’ve lived and worked in Norwich twice and it’s a very nice place to live albeit I found the locals quite an odd bunch who didn’t like strangers which made it difficult for newbies to settle. Luckily I played football for Easton which was our village team and through this made some good friends. I also had some decent work colleagues which prevents me from using the scum reference for all and to be honest I find it quite degrading and inappropriate.
All this said I’ve never enjoyed visiting Carrow Road and detest the place with a passion, especially their handling of Town fans on a match day particularly outside the stadium between the Railway Station and the ground, unfortunately I suspect this is a two way street when it comes to the reverse fixture at Portman Road.
Long may the rivalry continue and I’m looking forward to an extended period with Town on top which will is long overdue.
I guess I’ve mellowed with age as I’ll get more satisfaction enjoying the experience than throwing childish insults at their fans collectively as the majority will be no different to our own.

It's not an obsession it's natural curiosity of what our rivals are doing, fairing etc. You've lived in Norwich, so you'll be aware therefore of thd hatred they have for all things Ipswich! Have you lived in Ipswich? If not, then yoj have no idea of the ridiculous biased coverage, reporting, under-reporting by the so called regional media based in norwich.

We've had decades of it. It was only when I lived in sheffield and saw how the regional press deals with the numerous clubs in South Yorkshire that I realised just how biased and unfit for purpose the so called, BBC East Anglia and About Anglia really are!

Think ive said this before on this forum, but I completely understand the dislike for the rival, (namely HMFC) …… but couldn’t get onboard with the Norwich thing as im not from the area. :lol:

My own Manure bro in law (born and raised in Winchester) ——>> hates Liverpool fans. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Even my sister is like, “grow up you arse!” :lol:

But the derby day rival, Hallam —->> yep, i get it. Plenty of HMFC threads on HFC forum boards….. Got to keep the finger on the pulse of what’s going on.

Liz I spent the first 23 years of my life in Ipswich and missed only a handful of home games from the age of 8 or 9. From the age of 15/16 I was happy to exchange blows with rival fans in the North Stand long before the days of away fan segregation. Given the hooliganism that existed in football grounds in the late 60’s and early 70’s including Ipswich I probably know far more about rivalries than you do especially when it comes to Norwich and Ipswich games where it often became quite violent and I usually wasn’t far away from where it was happening, at least not until I grew up and moved on.
After 5yrs living away including a year in Norwich and 4 in Chelmsford where I was living when I got my first season ticket in 75/76. When I was 29 I moved to Colchester and lived there for another 11 years. My family lived all their lives in Ipswich and most are still there or close by in the county.
So I guess Liz 40 yrs of my life was dedicated to Ipswich, that’s all my education years which were all spent in schools and college 1 mile or less from the football ground. In fact my primary school St Matthew’s was and still is in Portman itself and every day of my school days I went past the football ground. I also lived the first 23yrs of my life within 1 mile of the ground and at different times had Andy Nelson and Frank Brogan as a neighbour, Brian Talbot as a school friend and Mick Hill and Johnny Miller as good personal friends. In my early 30’s I had very close personal contacts at the football club including Bobby Robson himself, Charlie Woods and Tony Mowbray. Hopefully all these links are close enough to entitle me to having an opinion because Ipswich Town Football Club has always been a big part of my life.
I may have lived in Norwich twice Liz. but on neither occasion did I come across the hatred of Ipswich you refer to. I’m sure it will have existed then and still does, but for me it depends who you mix with as to how prevalent this hatred might be. I think intellect comes into it too, I’m pretty sure the dumber they are the more likely the level of hatred, and I’m guessing the same applies in both directions in most likely similar numbers.
I can’t speak for what you say about Regionsl Newspapers, as I don’t read them. I used to like the Evening Star but I’ve never been a fan of the EADT. Maybe you should take your own advice, if you don’t like it don’t read it.
Finally on your advice not to comment, I thought discussion forums were all about exactly that, having a discussion. I didn’t know you could only comment if you agreed with the previous post, how boring would that be. Unlike some posters who dip in and out of Tractorboys.Com depending on how they feel, others like myself and a few others are always around, and I try to read most posts and comment in accordance with my availability of spare time.
I guess my lack of appreciation of your continuous scum reference is because I find it quite degrading when you apply to their fan base collectively as I know it’s not anywhere near true or accurate.

Using your own words Liz, if you don’t like what I’ve written feel free not to comment as I’m sure it’s best we both agree to disagree and move on. At least dealing with it this way we can avoid you going missing for a few weeks at such an exciting time for those of us who support Ipswich Town FC which is something we all have in common.

PS; Apologies to all for the ramble. It just kept coming. 😮
