  • David - despite it's name Chatillon is in Italy ,not France. Take the train from Novara to Turin and then get the train to Aosta. Chatillon is the penultimate stop. Should take about three hours. Sounds idyllic.

  • I Appreciate that Sampdoria's withdrawal is beyond NCFC control But why has the venue for the match V Novara been moved at such short notice. Along with lots of Fans I Have booked an Hotel to watch this match at Novaras Home ground
