Right players, wrong question

17 Sep

Well played Norwich City. I need to say that after their 3-0 victory over Brentford left the Canaries perched at the top of the Championship table. It was a great game but one, ultimately, that came down to the side who took their chances running out as winners. Brentford may have had more possession and shots on goal but there is only one stat that counts – and that’s where we were bettered.

To read the rest of this article, season 2014/15 is now available to download onto Kindle (and other electronic reading device) in full. Containing additional material and even some (poor) editing, you can get it here for less than the cost of a Griffin Park matchday programme or Balti Pie.

 Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, I need to make more space on the site for any follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further along.

    Nice report, and probably a fair summary. That Delia clip is a decade old now though…

      Cheers. It may be a decade old but I’ll take consolation in anything today. Well played

    I suspect Delia did this routine in the Norwich dressing room at half time, or their manager did something similar, because they were a different team after they came out in the second half. They stepped up a level and, with some clinical finishing, turned the game around. The Brentford performance was good throughout the game, but there was no answer to Norwich’s increasingly penetrative attack.

    I think McCormack into midfield was a smart move. Douglas has been outstanding but it was asking a lot to deal with the quality of Johnson and Tettey. It was no coincidence that when Mac went to full back after the first goal, Norwich then dominated.

    I did warn on the GPG earlier this week about Mr Robinson. Has never put in an adequate performance refereeing our games. And he was true to type. Even Ruddy acknowledged it should have been a pen. From that point on the Bees were deflated and just couldnt get back into the game. Norwich, though, were impressive. Good footballing side, but with power and grit too.
