From Norfolk to Sweden, to the United States and Australia and, of course, Norfolk – Norwich City fans have something to say to their team. 

So we’ve given up our space for a special People’s Pink Un – written by you, for you … and for your beloved team.  They’re uncut and heartfelt – in your own words. There are so many messages and photos, we’ll split them into three parts. 

Here’s part one!

Daniel is unique, and the entire club has become an icon of togetherness,  mutual respect, humility and the success resulting therefrom. I implore each and every team member to think twice before leaving this incredible project. It works only because of the bond that’s been created between you all. Please, give us one more year of your amazingly  beautiful, well-oiled football machine, which depends on the harmony which has grown between every one of you. Go on! I truly believe you won’t regret it. Thank you all.

Watching from: Edinburgh 

Favourite game: Sheffield Wednesday away. It was my birthday and what better way to celebrate than sitting in my new ACN Farkeball t-shirt watching a comeback win? The winner is my favourite goal of the season too. Love Emi’s tackle, Todd’s finish and that wonderful noise as it hit the post and emphatically went in. Honestly go watch it again - it’s beautiful. On the highlights Mark Rivers says an “oh wow!” before it’s even in...

Message: What a fillip in these dark days  watching you play. As the season developed so did the confidence in the style of play. So many goals have been after magical footy. Perhaps my only criticism.....sometimes let’s do it scruffy like Watford. Champions without doubt whatever happens now!!!!
