    Regardless of the result the Canaries will sit at the top of the tree at the end of match day number 37 for both these clubs. Will the Canaries get another win, or will Forrest arrest their recent poor form, their manager Chris Hughton would surly like to get one over Norwich who he managed for a couple of years from 2012-2014.

    Form:
    Nottingham Forest: DLLDW
    Norwich City: WWWWW

    These two clubs first played each other in 1915 in an FA cup game with Norwich 1-4 away winners. Forest and the Canaries have both won 28 games and draws 18. Hopefully the balance will be tipped towards the team in yellow at the end of the day.

    As well as their manager Forest have Lewis Grabban who used to play for Norwich. As for Norwich, both Sam Byram and Kieran Dowell have played for Forest on loan earlier in their careers.

    Here are a couple of videos from that crazy 3-3 draw from December 2018. Looking at the amount of good chances it could have been 5-5 or 7-5 to Norwich without that being an unfair result, both keepers made some cracking saves.

    Presume you have this phrase saved somewhere so that you don't have to go to the trouble of typing it out for each match thread?

    Yet another game where we'll probably have to be very patient against a team who put ten men behind the ball.

    That's interesting - I chose not to go into the construction industry because I could not build the foundations

    His pre (and hopefully post) match press conference might be the first time we've heard him say something positive about NCFC as a team...

    I majored in animal husbandry, until they caught me at it one day.

    I think he might have done that when we played Brighton in the PL under Alex Neil.

    Most of us would surely take "a very good side" as pretty positive -- especially coming after Emi's deflected (and Forest deflating) late winner in a match in which Forest created the three best chances of the game?
