The whole team should take a bow after both the Nottingham Forest and Newcastle performances. The finest City have produced this season. Regardless of our wonder strikes, the confidence in which we were zipping the ball about was beautiful to witness. The result against Forest is exactly what we should be are doing to opposition with our calibre of squad in this league. As for Newcastle, I’m just super proud of our boys in yellow. Fought for absolutely everything. A crucial point.
Jonny Howson is in the form of his life. His Howitzer against Forest voted the best goal ever scored at Carrow Road and almost scored another long range effort against Newcastle. Super Jon!
Wes is just being the Wes we all love at the moment. He won’t last forever, so cherish him while he’s twisting and turning on this Carrow Road turf. His last strike was quite simply outrageous; what made it so special was that it was completely unexpected. A gorgeous loft that was so good it was described as ‘sexual’ by Talk Norwich City’s Jack Reeve.
Pritchard – Limited time on Tuesday night but the ball just stuck to his feet the whole 90 minutes against Forest. An extremely worthy man of the match performance. Hopefully we’ll see him deployed against Burton this weekend.
I did find it rather entertaining that there were STILL negative Norwich fans who commented on our poor defending after Forest. If you’re not positive after your team wins 5-1 – quite frankly, you need to get a life.
In a sense, the same applies to Newcastle. Ok reflection they wiped the floor with us in the second hand, I’ll happily take a point from that, the momentum is still with us…
Oliveira out is obviously very disappointing but Cam Jam is more than capable. Lets just hooe he stays injury free. Dorrans coming back in a few weeks will nicely bolster the midfield too.
Special mention to those singing, chanting, shouting and getting behind our lads against Newcastle. Let’s be sure to turn Carrow Road into a cauldron of atmosphere for derby. Not that I need to request that…
Overall, City are looking really good heading into the business end of the season. On to Burton, nothing less that 3 points is acceptable.
