Not sure my heart can take watching another match like that one. They should drop the prices to £20 for mid week cup games.

Prices held and quite rightly as Norwich are currently a Premier League Team. Let’s see who comes out of the draw for the 1/4 finals “should” we get through. Newcastle anyone?
