TalkNorwichCity’s Jack Reeve dissects a pleasing victory for Norwich City over a Millwall side which has failed to find a victory away from The Den this campaign. Goals from James Maddison and Tom Trybull cancelled out a wonder strike from ex-Canary Steve Morison.
A much improved second period granted Norwich with three points they so desperately required following an underwhelming game at Burton Albion.
Daniel Farke’s team selection versus Burton was met with a tirade of angst and confusion. Key protagonists were rested and Norwich dropped two potential points. The head coach must be praised for his long term approach alongside his bravery to prioritise this encounter at Carrow Road.
After that Brentford result, Norwich needed to impress a fanbase slowly losing faith in the current regime.
Scepticism and relief were the overriding emotions displayed by supporters in the aftermath of a charismatic second half display for the Canaries. TalkNorwichCity’s Chris Reeve puts his case forward for the reasons that Norwich left Carrow Road as winners.
Chris pinpoints the individual qualities of James Maddison and Alex Pritchard as the catalyst for Norwich’s improved second period, with the two combining for the winning strike. Following a first half whereby Norwich lacked energy and were ultimately undone by Morison’s physicality as he slyly peeled off the centre backs and dominated Jamal Lewis aerially.
There were still issues, but Norwich City displayed tremendous character according to TalkNorwichCity’s Connor Southwell.
Jamal Lewis and Josh Murphy deserve honourable mentions for their performances in this affair. The academy graduates combined brilliantly to stabilise a left side which has been the subject of criticism for some supporters.
The formers insurgence into the Canaries first team has been incredible to consume. His positioning, athleticism and maturity for a 19 year old has seen him lauded by his head coach and supporters alike.
Josh Murphy’s improved display was pleasing to witness according to this Canaries supporter.
By his own admission, Murphy’s performances have been underwhelming this campaign. Murphy was fully deserving of his ovation as he was substituted.
Another who caught the limelight was the industrious Tom Trybull. The German was a pivotal figure in the engineroom alongside his counterpart, Alex Tettey. The duo developed a substructure which allowed City to flourish offensively.
Trybull’s technical qualities are superior to those who rival him in his position at the football club. He must be rewarded with a long term deal.
