The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 2-1 defeat at West Brom.

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

Sunday Mirror: “The Canaries came close to a share of the spoils despite the absence of key striker Grant Holt…In addition to his goal, Snodgrass was always asking problems of Albion.”

The Mail on Sunday: “If there was an element of goalkeeping fallibility about Norwich’s opener, Mark Bunn will also have been unhappy about his inability to prevent Albion’s equaliser.”

The Observer: “It was a rare start for Romelu Lukaku, who has been kept out of the side for most of the season by Shane Long, but he justified his selection on Saturday.”

The Independent: “Just when it seemed Norwich were upstaging them as the surprise name among the established order, West Brom reimposed their authority to end an unbeaten run of 10.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “The visitors played with a confidence and fluidity that eluded West Brom…who appeared to be running out of ideas until they equalised before the break.”

  • bunn ,was fouled for the first goal.they marked him out by getting in front ,and stopping him coming for the ball,nine times out of ten it would have been a free kick.wasnt a corner anyway.a bit worried about playing so well first half then looking tired in the second.must score more goals when we are on top.see in sports news to-day that lambo is interested in morro.otbc.

  • There it was a lack of 2 inches meant the save hit the bar rather than go over it. How tall is Declan?

  • Dec is 6` 3" at the last count, Wiv. Also he can jump! Bunn does not seem very good at levitation. It`s his Achilles Heel ;-) JR is 6` 4", Jed is 6` 2 and-a-half inches and still growing! There are other "small" goalkeepers around but most of the modern breed are Ruddy-sized. Looking at the Yahoo replay of the first Albion goal it seemed that Albion built a wall of bodies around Bunn and it`s a moot point whether or not he was actually fouled. He got away with one at Swansea. You win some, you lose some?

  • Bunn is a good shot stopper, but not tall enough to command the box in the Premiership. He always looks vulnerable in those box melees, whereas Ruddy takes immediate control.

  • The Little Englander on Sunday & the Torygraph got it about right. We were on top until the equaliser and our goalie was culpable.

  • Perhaps LAM8-0`s way of saying sorry is to take Morison off our hands?
