How will you be celebrating Norwich City’s successful survival mission?
Football supporters have come up with all kinds of weird and wonderful ways to celebrate over the years.
Just last weekend more than 170 supporters of Hartlepool United left Londoners shocked when they arrived at King’s Cross Station dressed as blue Smurfs en route to Charlton Athletic, soon becoming an online hit.
While fans of Swansea City - who have shared the limelight with the Canaries this season by impressively securing Premier League survival - are planning their own stunt this weekend.
Swans boss Brendan Rodgers is encouraging their supporters to dress as Elvis Pressley for their final home match of the season, against Liverpool.
Rodgers said: “I will be asking all the fans if they can wear as many Elvis Presley costumes as we can because when we got promoted the bookies said there was more chance of seeing Elvis Presley than us staying at this level.”
Here are a few suggestions for how Norwich supporters can celebrate:
- Wear a Grant Holt mask.
- Wear green and yellow facepaint.
- Dress as Paul Lambert or Delia Smith.
- Write ‘Mission accomplished – NCFC 2011-12’ on a plain T-shirt.
- Take an inflatable toy.
- Take ‘Grant Holt and John Ruddy for England’ signs.
