Dismal Norwich City crashed to a humiliating 7-0 Premier League defeat at Manchester City that ratcheted up the pressure on Canaries’ boss Chris Hughton.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The visitors were totally dismantled by Manuel Pellegrini’s men on an embarrassing afternoon at the Etihad that kept Norwich firmly moored in the bottom three.

Bradley Johnson’s bizarre own goal opened the floodgates as Norwich shipped three goals in nine minutes in the opening quarter. John Ruddy could only parry David Silva’s angled strike and then Matija Nastasic’s header deceived Leroy Fer and the visting keeper. Alvaro Negredo slammed home a fourth before the interval – albeit Sergio Aguero appeared to be offside in the build up. Yaya Toure’s sharp free-kick on the hour mark piled on fresh misery and Aguero slotted a sixth after a woeful attempted clearance from Sebastien Bassong that typified Norwich’s abject surrender before Edin Dzeko rubbed salt in the wound in the closing minutes.

Hughton made two changes to his starting line up from the goalless Premier League draw against Cardiff. Steven Whittaker and Johnson replaced injured duo Alex Tettey (ankle) and Robert Snodgrass (head). Snodgrass was omitted on medical advice after suffering concussion in the midweek Capital One Cup exit at Manchester United. Nathan Redmond was also absent after suffering a muscle problem to his left hip area in the second half at Old Trafford. Tettey has been ruled out until the New Year after undergoing ankle ligament surgery. Club record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel was another absentee to rest a troublesome foot injury. City’s raft of injury concerns saw Josh Murphy included on the bench in the Premier League for the second time with twin Jacob also in the travelling party that headed north on Friday lunchtime.

Manchester City and England keeper Joe Hart had to settle for a place on the hosts’ substitutes’ bench as was widely trailed, with Costel Pantilimon preferred following his display in the midweek Capital One Cup win over Newcastle.

Leroy Fer partnered Johnson in a defensively-minded holding duo in central midfield but Hughton sprung something of a surprise with Whittaker deployed in front of Russell Martin with Martin Olsson retained at left back.

Silva tricked his way past Martin in the opening seconds but his driven cross brushed Negredo at Ruddy’s near post. Anthony Pilkington drove at the Blues’ backline but Martin Demichelis thwarted the wide player in a signal of Norwich’s growing confidence. Silva and Samir Nasri combined to slice through Norwich’s central defence before Nasri’s clip thudded against the outside of Ruddy’s right-hand post from close range. Norwich were breached seconds later in the most bizarre of circumstances when Michael Turner’s initial block to foil Silva ricocheted against Augero and then spiralled against Johnson to deceive Ruddy. Aguero then punished Norwich again when he raced beyond Bassong to roll in Silva who lashed an angled strike that Ruddy could only parry on its way into the net.

The Canaries’ afternoon lurched from bad to worse in the 25th minute when Nastasic’s header from Nasri’s corner brushed Martin and looped between Fer and Ruddy.

Turner checked the home onslaught with a brave block to deny Silva before Aguero lashed over from the corner with the hosts toying with Norwich. Ruddy’s spill shortly after underlined the panic in the visiting ranks but Martin bailed out his keeper but Pellegrini’s men struck a fourth nine minutes before the interval. Aguero looked suspiciously offside in collecting Toure’s lifted pass to produce a cut back Negredo smashed home from close range. Pantilimon was belatedly pressed into action to shovel Pilkington’s long range strike behind but normal service was swiftly resumed when Toure easily rolled Bassong but rifled straight at Ruddy.

Josh Murphy made his entrance at the interval for his Premier League debut along with Johan Elmander as Hooper and Whittaker made way. Pellegrini hooked Negredo for Dzeko who had scored against the Magpies in midweek. Pantilimon punched clear Pilkington’s free kick in a rare attacking foray from the visitors. Elmander then spurned the Canaries’ best chance to date when he side footed over six yards out after Johnson had picked out the unmarked Swede. Ruddy then denied Nasri with a low stop to his left before Aguero slammed the rebound into the side netting. Johnson brought down Dzeko 25 yards outside the Norwich penalty area in a dangerously central position – and Toure took full advantage with a wonderfully precise free kick up and over the wall into Ruddy’s top right-hand corner. Norwich’s painful afternoon was encapsulated by the Blues’ sixth - Silva escaped down the left to cut back a cross Bassong could only waft in Aguero’s direction who smacked past Ruddy from 10 yards. Ruddy denied Aguero from 20 yards after Norwich were undone by one long diagonal ball from the back. Turner was then cautioned for taking matters into his own hands to haul down Aguero on the edge of the Norwich penalty area. The Norwich stopper produced his best work of the afternoon to deny Demichelis from six yards after Toure’s initial free kick dropped to the Argentine defender. Ruddy’s late defiance was ended by Dzeko with a clinical turn and hit from just inside the penalty area that flew past the grounded keeper to complete the rout.

  • Wow! That was a tough one, but guess what, I predicted that ages ago! Would have been nice to at least get one or two consolation goals, but were we really likely to do well against MCFC with a couple of our best players out and others not firing on all cylinders? This realist says not! Hope to see much better over the coming weeks when we play teams more in our league to be honest. OTBC! Dave (Realist!)

  • Dear Stew Interesting that you mention Picasso and the possibility of Hughton’s explicit intent to confuse the opposition. Am I right in thinking that you mean he is predominantly trying to imitate the Cubist modality, relying not just on the exploitation of the diamond system, but the relative juxtaposition of the four two four formation? In essence this is theoretically possible, but the practicality is such that your argument maintains fundamental flaws, most notably that if the opposition are confused, there is the distinct possibility that the team will be similarly confused, and remain unable to comprehend basic instruction, for example, shoot! The risk is, of course, that this may lead to players being disorientated to the extent that own goals become a distinct possibility, performances characterised by memory loss, the most severe manifestation of which is forgetting where the opposition goal is. Such confusion will ultimately begin to affect the fans, who confronted by ‘osmotic disorientation’, will have no choice other than to make for the nearest stadium exit, or to commence chanting ‘You don’t know what you’re doing’

  • CanaryWest you are quite correct, we do trust in McNally to act! he certainly didn't hang around in firing Gunn. I really find it sad that the Hughton apologists are really saying they don't know of any better managers out there. But then none of these people are Football Club Chairman or football professionals, I am sure there are plenty of people who can do a better job, get the players and team playing better! after all the players we have got now are supposedly superior to the squad lambert had as Hughton got rid of most of that squad. We all know that the magic number 7 can bring hope where there was despair. We have faith that the Board will now keep us in the promised land and act now before it is too late. It is very easy to leave it too late in the season to make up even a small points deficit. Now is a good time to bring in a new manager with some winnable games coming up

  • By my calculations 6 of the legaue games have gone as we would have expected so far in terms of results... At Stoke we gained 2 points... but we lost 2 against Cardiff, lost 1 against Villa and lost 1-3 aginst Hull depending upon how optimistic you are.... so we are currently 2-4 points below where we should be in my book.... this is bad but not disastrous. The bigger problem is the form of the players... RVW, Hooper, Elmander all look a long way away from being convinvcing and Martin, Bassong, Johnson, Hoolahan and Snodgrass are all less effective than last season... as for Becchio... he must be absolutely abysmal in training to not be given a run out in front of this crowd.. why he hasnt played at all as sub once we have lost one of the games aginst the big teams is totally beyond me

Give a new manager a chance to review the squad ahead of the transfer window and strengthen where necessary. We need a fighting chance of staying up and we won't have that with CH and his pathetically weak management team.

There is plenty of time to salvage this season,but are there really enough quality players there to do it?

  • I've already told Bill Punton's Bald patch that the board of this club have made such a fatal error in attempting to keep this club in the Premier League by spending £27,000,000 on players rather than their customers' facilities. £27,000,000 won't keep us in the Premier League - the bottom line is that it doesn't matter whether we spend £27,000,000 or £1,000,000 on new players - we can't stay up - but £26,000,000 would give NCFC's customers the chance to at least SEE their team by increasing capacity. I require the board and Mr McNally to reconsider their position in view of the ludicrous 'pie in the sky' dreamworld which they seem to inhabit.

  • Lets think about this logically, if CH goes, we then have to ask the operator of the managers merry go round to stop it in order for us to pick another failed no hoper. A new manager would be working with players he didn't purchase so there's his excuse straight away. Give me CH ahead of Pulis, or O'Neil anyday. Judge hime after the next 3 games when we are playing against similar opponents.

  • I've got a moment to spare from my seasonal job plucking pheasants! To say that many of us are concerned about the results being achieved by our team in all competitions is putting it mildly. I believe, and I emphasise 'I' that when we were dumped by Mr Lambert for whatever reason, and the truth to that may never be known, Mr Hughton inherited a bunch of players that had become established in the Premiership. From the moment of his appointment he set about changing things. He had the summer of 1012 to bring in fresh blood to enhance the team, and get them playing as a unit, in pre season matches, The first match of the new season was away at Fulham, and all his abilities in management and coaching came DOWN with a huge bump. Norwich City has not recovered from that day. He managed to take a co-ordinated team into a bunch of individuals, with haste. He, like some of his predecessors before Lambert, quickly drained the spirit from his players. We have now arrived at the point where we are sailing on rough seas and I wonder how long it will be before it is officially announced that we have 'Mutiny' on board

  • December 3 & April 14 - 2011 2012 Manchester City, Away lost 5 - 1, home lost 6 - 1. Manager Paul Lambert. When we had a striker who could score. Wise men, Canaryinslovenia, Ged and other helpless contributors to the Pinkun message boards, where were you dribbling your lack of perspective then ??? We did not turn up at the game yesterday, That is the players, they were put out there to perform. Most of them have done well in the past, why not yesterday ?? We have three or four who currently cannot perform at present, why ? Certainly not the managers fault, he wasn`t on the pitch, but back in the past he would have been ashamed to be as inadequate as they were. But the blame experts know it all, one of them even professes to know every word and move in the inner sanctums of Carrow Road. Grow up boys or maybe girls, you show your failings far more than any there, with your constant drivel of so called pronouncements. In the past few days we have heard from a proper three wise men, professionals in football, Wenger, Mourinho and Shearer. Did you listen to their respect for Chris Hughton, I doubt it, you were probably to busy thinking up more unqualified drivel and vitrol to exercise your under achieved knowledge. Why didn`t these guys perform yesterday, the only people who really know are themselves, are they happy with that show ? If they are they do not belong. Whatever you moaners say it will not be worth printing, we have a manager who is a top professional, he is being let down by at least four of the team currently. They are the problem and it will not be resolved by the howling drivelers for changes at the top. Think on !!! Just as an aside, do you think any of our squad would stand a chance of getting into the £ 400 million plus Man City squad ?? This is the reality of the Premiership a league of two sections. Those with unlimited funds and those without. Drivelers, get into the world of reality.

  • I have just been in a slanging match with mickncfc who seems to think that he is right and we are all wrong about this management team. They have successfully taken a team that cost a lot of money by our standards, and that includes several international players, and they have managed to mould them into a totally inept unit, incapable of any attacking nous, no idea of how to defend and overall lacking in fight. Sorry guys, I have been accused before for rubbishing Hughton, but the proof is in the results. 6 wins in the last 36, tactics that clearly don't work but the fool buries his head in the sand and refuses to change. No plan A, let alone Plan B or C, certainly no idea of how to change a game heading for a loss,hammerings that are becoming all too frequent and making us the laughing stock with the media, football pundits and any self respecting football supporter.

When we had our unbeaten run last season I didn't see Hughton getting ALL the plaudits, he got his fair share but so did the players. Now things aren't going so well how come all of a sudden it's ALL Hughtons fault? Players need to take a fair bit of blame for todays showing as well as far as i'm concerned. There is no disgrace in losing at Man City and many other teams will lose there as well but to lose like we did just isn't good enough.

  • The most damning statistic during this debacle came on BBC Final Score when it was said our three front men have only had SIX shots on target between them in all the Prem League games so far. If that doesn't put things in perspective nothing does. We are simply not providing these three with any worthwhile service. The team is performing worse than last season despite Hughton having spent thick end of £30million on new players. We have played with a left footed right winger all season....how daft is that?! I have held back on Hughton so far, but I am now sure he is drinking in the last chance saloon. I would give him one more game and if we don't beat West Ham then a change is absolutely paramount because we could then start being cast adrift.

  • Poor result, poor performance we have lost the relevative solidness at the back - too many players out of form. Injuries have made the squad look threadbare, no chance against City on paper even with a good performance. I have always been a CH man and reckon he be there for West Ham, depending on result, International break, don't know after that!! Mackay to Norwich, Hughton to Palace?? Squad is too thin and needs boosting, missing the Holty influence in the dressing room! My biggest worry is he keeping Fer happy, at present our game revolves around him, OTBC.

Rumour has it Robert Chase was consulted on the managerial short list that CH topped.. Who knows if there is any truth in that story?

Plenty former Premier League teams are mid-table Championship teams and will remain so. Teams like Norwich can do no more than stay in the Premier League. This situation is not good for football.

You don't lose by seven to a team in the same league division. Oh, hang on .... we do, apparently. Anybody on the Board bothered about this sort of reverse? They were at Colchester, and at least we managed a goal that day.

We are massively in debt and stuck in the second tier without any prospect of getting promoted anytime soon.... Yes this was a bad result but you have had a terrible run of fixtures and your survival won't be decided by results at places like Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea etc it will be in the mini league with the likes of Cardiff, Palace.... I wish you well in your fight to stay up however much I miss derby games !!!

This display just demonstrates CH has lost the the respect of the dressing room. The stats show that presently we are relegation material. Surely this is the moment for McNally to make the change if we have any hope of avoiding the drop.

The fining of all the players one weeks wages for not trying, and Ruddy 2 weeks wages for being useless. I saving grace is that Ruddy will never play for England after that shocking performance, Chelsea can have him

  • I can't afford to go matches. Ticket prices too dear. But I suppose they have to be high to cover the players' wages, and the wages have to be high to cover the cost of all those tattoos and ridiculous hair cuts. But against Man City I did listen to every minute on the radio and watched every minute on MOTD. For that I deserve a lot of credit. As for mj50 and all those other wretched souls who spend hours going up and down the motorway to endure misery and humiliation, they deserve a medal and the freedom of the City. It baffles me why Norwich are such a well supported club (relative to the size of the catchment area) given that the players, on today's performance at least, are more concerned with their looks and their pay packets than their commitment to the club. Yes, Hughton is mainly to blame. (When it comes to recruitment, motivation, selection, tactics and substitutions, he fails on all 5 counts.) But the players have to take some responsibility. On today's showing, Norwich won't get more than 2 points (never mind 6) from the next 3 games. Hughton will be gone long before Christmas, but that still leaves us with the worthless bunch of overpaid prima donnas who disgraced and humiliated our club in Manchester this week. The fans will still be paying for their tattoos and haircuts when the team are struggling against Barnsley next season.....even if Ferguson is tempted out of retirement. And yet, even when we're trailing 0-3 at Oakwell, I guess I'll still be glued to Chris Goreham's commentary. God knows why. Still..........OTBC.

The last time we got done this badly was against Colchester in league 1. We actually scored that day so this is a worse scoreline. That kick in the rear lead to McNally sacking the manager, getting a relatively unknown entity in Lambert and went on to have the best 4 years in recent memory. Maybe this drubbing was what was ultimately needed! Our season wont be decided on playing against the big 6 away from home! Hoping for a big response in our next home games!

  • I've already told Bill Punton's Bald patch that the board of this club have made such a fatal error in attempting to keep this club in the Premier League by spending £27,000,000 on players rather than their customers' facilities. £27,000,000 won't keep us in the Premier League - the bottom line is that it doesn't matter whether we spend £27,000,000 or £1,000,000 on new players - we can't stay up - but £26,000,000 would give NCFC's customers the chance to at least SEE their team by increasing capacity. I require the board and Mr McNally to reconsider their position in view of the ludicrous 'pie in the sky' dreamworld which they seem to inhabit.

  • Well said Barking wise. The ridiculous wages these players are paid is the curse of the modern game. Did one Norwich player make a tackle yesterday! get bruised,shed blood sweat or tears for the club? No I thought not! the reason is Hughton couldn't motivate a donkey to eat a carrot. get rid. McNally NOW

  • By the way. Much as I don't like to say I told you so, "I told you so". I don't need you all to apologise to me. I know I have your respect and that is all I really need. Many thanks. Your hero and fan leader, Ged Steroo x

  • GED, you are a legend, we love your humour! Can you put Hoots on the bus with a single ticket to somewhere suitably obscure with no phone or Internet so we don't have to listen to his pathetic wingeing excuses anymore

  • Imagine the carnage if we go one down against West Ham. Come on Mr McNally, save us (and him) all the misery. It's game over.
