Norwich City were scheduled to host Manchester United in an FA Cup quarter-final on Sunday afternoon. So why don’t you sit down and watch the last Carrow Road quarter-final with the Pinkun crew.

City’s scheduled last-eight date, after squeezing past Tottenham on penalties in front of 9,000 travelling fans, was postponed as part of a football-wide shutdown in light of the coronavirus global pandemic.

Daniel Farke’s squad will have a chance to reach the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since a memorable night in Norfolk 28 years ago.

The Canaries edged an epic against Southampton, with Chris Sutton’s looping header sealing the win in extra-time after a goalless affair on the south-coast.

What better way to whet the appetite for what is to come than a trip down memory lane? Watch highlights of the action in the company of the Pinkun chaps.
