Norwich City boss Neil Adams insisted the Canaries were in control before Martin Olsson’s red card tilted their Championship opener in Wolves’ favour in Sunday’s televised 1-0 defeat at Molineux.

Olsson picked up a second yellow card on the hour mark and Dave Edwards punished the visitors four minutes later to inflict a painful loss on Adams’ side.

“The sending off changed the game. It came at a point when we were starting to dominate the second half,” he said. “We said at half-time that we needed to step it up and impose ourselves on the game, and we did that. We were controlling the game and looking like we were going to go on and win it. 
The second challenge is more of a yellow card than the first for me, I was really disappointed with the first one. I don’t think it should have got to that, we should have had a foul before.”

City’s defeat came after Fulham slipped up at Ipswich and Cardiff could only draw at Blackburn on a bad weekend for the relegated Premier League trio.

“We’ve seen the results and we’ve seen the games, and it’s a tough league, we knew that,” he said. “If you’re not at it and things go against you, then you will get punished and that’s what happened today. I thought we defended particularly well but that one opportunity - good movement and a late run into the box, and it was a good goal from their point of view.

“We’re going to be up against teams that are giving it a real good go. We’re going to be tested with all sorts this season and we have to be ready and match that. We have to win games, it’s as simple as that. We have two home games now and the support of the home crowd. We need to make sure that we get points on the board to get up and running.”

  • Thanks Igno Rance. Been a Wolves fan since late 60's - suffered plenty of pain in process! Ability wise Norwich should at least make play-offs it just the mental approach the team has will be key. Like us in Div 1 last year, Norwich is a big scalp so all teams will raise their game 10- 20%+. Get some points asap then momentum will carry you forward. Not sure how Wolves will do this year, unlikely to be a threat but anything above 10th place for us this year will be a good season.

  • Norwich were far to slow going forward, getting caught with the ball, to much bad passing, like driving a car in second gear all the time and not getting into top gear. Seemed as if we were just going through the motions. need to buck their ideas up quickly.

First game I ever saw was Wolves v Dynamo Kiev (Ron Flowers, Billy Wright et al). Became a Wolves supporter there and then. Moved on now, but, if we have to lose the opener (tradition now) glad it was to you. Hopefully, we'll both be thereabouts come the end of proceedings. Good luck buddy.

  • Thanks Shoe for your insightful comments. When I was a small boy (many many years ago) the great day came when my parents bought a television set. Back then, the only televised football matches were European friendly games between the likes of Arsenal Manchester United and Wolves against Dynamo Kiev, Benfica Moscow Dynamo etc. The first game I saw was Wolves (Ron Flowers Billy Wright et al) against Moscow Dynamo. Even though I lived in the Home Counties I became a Wolves supporter that day. Now converted to Norwich, but if we had to lose the opener ( a tradition) I'm glad it was to my second team. Hopefully, we will both be thereabouts come the fat lady singing.

  • Lets not panic here, in both of our last promotions we lost the first game. It is concerning that many are attacking the manager already, our great strength under PL was that everyone was united and pulling the same way. IMO if we are to play Wes away from home we have to also use 2 ball winners behind him, Johnson was simply overwhelmed so we never had control of midfield. I would question Redmond's selection unless and until he can deliver any end product, hot prospect though he might be we need the here and now this year. And please can we get a strong central defender and captain.

  • Wolves fan in peace. I know its only 1 game in but similarities to when we were relegated from the Prem 3 years ago. Most looked at our squad and thought we'd boss the league and just turn up and win - how wrong were we! There's a hangover of failure which is so difficult to shift and our 'new' manager at the time (Solbacken - nice guy) had neither the balls or experience to rid the team from this. Does this sound like Adams? From what I saw yesterday surely Lafferty & Grabban up front with 2 off Redmond, Fer & Bennett on wings would suit you best? Have a good season, but not TOO good of course.

  • We defended particularly well - whatever planet is he on. The back four were dreadful , slow ponderous and generally in a mess. They were woefully slow, looked unfit, didn't pick up very well and caught ball watching on numerous occasions. For goodness sake lets have Bennett in there and realise quickly that Whittacker just isn't at the races.

  • While on the subject of misreading the game I see Adams is suggesting Ollsen should have shadowed the player and kept him out wide. Anyone could see that Ollsen was left in the player's wake and was behind the man at all times, which is when he brought him down. So no way was Ollsen in any position to keep the player wide! I am increasingly worried about the way Adams reads the game. Perhaps he is too "Norwivch City" and a manager needs to be a little more objective?

And Redman, you've realised he can't cross the ball so he's not a wide player, but you don't have the time to develop him into a striker, get rid before it becomes a stubborn obsession. You've got Grab and Laff, don't turn one of them into a RVW.

  • e18 canary - on the Huddersfield decision it was on the back of the previous season results and not on the one off on Saturday. Seems we have either the deja-vu or groundhog day as others have mentioned. I have bemoaned the lack of coverage here now we are in the Championship, I may be grateful for the lack off real time pain if we continue like this. It is only one game in the Championship but the learning curve needs to be more effective for us to stand a chance. I know it will be only the second game of the season but the game against Watford for me is an already must win game! If the do not deliver at Carrow Road then we do need to look for the son of Lambo. OTBC

  • While I have remained neutral about Neil Adams' appointment, in the cold light of day the comments above have me worried. If he truly believes what he says here, then nothing is going to change. But change it must because to most of us who watched the game agree, this was just a continuation of last season's malaise. Nothing has changed. The majority of the players who failed so lamentably last season were on the pitch and their individual and collective weaknesses were as apparent yesterday as they were for all of 201314. I won't go into them all because they are well covered by others. The big worry is that Adams does not appear to see them but to rather believe that we did well and that everything conspired against us. Clearly that is not a correct diagnosis but a head in the sand, defensive but for me miscalculated series of comments. Our weaknesses were as usual exposed quite ruthlessly and Wolves could and should have scored at least twice more. Had it not been for Ruddy they would have added to their one goal win.

  • The pre-season bubble of optimism was that, unfettered by Hughton, the players who were too good to be relegated would deliver freeflowing attacking football which even on a bad day would see us go down in style. Well, we had a bad day but where was the style? And why was the dream pairing of Lafferty and Grabban delayed? Adams talks of this being a tough league. Well, the PL was tougher. And some posts talk of tactics. Not my thing. Better defenders needed back point of diamond? Good at technical crosses? Big hole in middle of diamond? Play 4-1-3-2? I thought there were only three segments of play, defence, midfield, attack? But as I say, not my thing. Perhaps it not NA's either considering he's now lost 5 out of 6. Or maybe he is right now banging on the door of Head of Recruitment and telling him there's 20 days left to the end of the window, here's a list, now go earn your money.

  • Once again Hoolahan totally failed to live up to his billing. That overhit pass just before the red card could've totally changed the game. If he could pass the ball properly we could have been 1-0 up, and of course the whole pattern of play changes and Olsson doesn't make that foul, We need to strengthen central midfield as it is the key area.

And where was Redmond, turned up now and again. To much tippy tappy football. I think we will be looking at mid-table if we are lucky. Very disappointing performance

  • Well, this is a grim state of affairs. Very much where we left off in fact. Overall we were poor in the passing and defence. Drop the diamond shape, two passes and they cut through our midfield. The usual hoofing up the pitch to clear the ball (even when not under pressure) is just giving the possession away. move redmond onto the wing. Turner and Olsson need to get a grip. Work on a 4-4-2 and your crosses and you will find those strikers shine. NA you will not be long for this job unless you change what we saw today at wolves.

  • Agree entirely with geolis. Ryan Bennett is by far our best defender and should have started. Russell Martin is a good full back who gets forward much better than the awkward looking Whitaker. Lafferty should also have started with Redmond operating to the right of the diamond instead of Elliot Bennett. We are in the championship - therefore we need to set up appropriately.

  • Good, that's destroyed complacency. Now realism will set in and hopefully people will start to get a grip on things. Too many people played far too deep to service the strikers. that HAS to be addressed. If the single back diamond point isn't enough for defensive cover you need better defenders andor two people on the back point of the diamond - Tettey and Johnson. Seemed to be the lines were all over the place when defending. May need the flat 4 midfield as we did not get hold of midfield - big hole in the middle of the diamond?

  • Btw; NB. When I was a manager, I held a personal view that the best boss is second best at what all his assistants do. That way, they don`t get p****d off, nor do they feel irreplaceable. I`d thought it was original, but perhaps it was something I absorbed unconsciously from your Mr. Maxwell. My own boss didn`t buy into the concept at all. He was best at everything. He did everything right, but rarely did the right things...

  • Lots of Norwich fans saying the same comments about today's game- I agree with most of them. As an A licence holder today I believe the tactics, style of play and ideology that Neil wants to play was evident. However- not for the championship ! Ryan Bennett should play at centre back with Turner and Martin at Right back- mainly because he gives us width and good technical crosses when he gets forward. You also need a big target man- Lafferty needs to start with Grabban playing off him. Give Hoolahan a free role behind and let Johnson and Tettey sit with one other, Redmond, Bennett, Pilkington, Howson play just in front.Tettey and Johnson can always push on as an outlet for Wes, Lewis and Kyle whilst one sits in front of the back four. In other words 4-1-3-2 which changes all the time depending on possession or regaining possession. I would give Adams at least 10 games- you've got to. But don't leave it too long to make a change if needed. I truly believe he got major tactical and playing personnel wrong today.

We never looked like scoring. Our defending was stretched most of the game. Plan B looked like plan A which looked like the same plan CH was using. We should use the next home games to organize concerted protest against McNally and cronies.

  • Pathetic performance by the majority. Thank God for Ruddy keeping out other potential Wolves goals. Ryan Bennet has got to be brought in for Watford with Russ going back to right back. Whittaker is a liability. Redmond needs to get back to basics and stop going for glory. Just look as the reactions of the other players every time he decides to shoot off target rather than crossing. Huddersfield may have acted a bit prematurely today but if we don't get points in the next 3 games NA has got to be replaced. Just look at last season for how not to run the club.

Watching the football league show last night it is very apparent that most Championship teams play with a target man and are fairly direct. It's no coincidence that Norwich flourished with Grant Holt playing this role to perfection.

  • Agree with most of the later postings on here. It is all very worrying. NA claimed to have watched Wolves then plays a tippy tappy midfield in a league that is all about brute strength, getting a goal and holding onto it. If we don't wise up soon we will be adrift by the time Adams is replaced. Felix Magath said yesterday that some of his highly rated young players were not used to being tackled like that. That is the reality of this league. We can't carry passengers or right backs who think they are centre halves.

We were abject. Sky summarised the game accurately and in an unbiased manner. And finally, the referee was dead right except the Ollsen red was a penalty as the foul continued into the box.

Outgunned, outplayed outmanaged by a team that come May will at best be mid table. Olsson, Garrido, Johnson, Bennett, Martin, Surman not good enough. Total lack of pace throughout the team. Redmond as greedy as they come, Grabban looks out of position as do most of midfield. If that's the new attacking style we are in trouble big time. Plus point, Lafferty, only one to show urgency. No teams will be scared to play us,

  • So here we go again, was hoping for better but more of the same, Lafferty the only flicker of hope (along with JR as usual), surely he must start. Seasoned Championship defenders are not going to be frightened by the likes of Redmond, he may have pace on occaissions but is just so light weight and his play lacks purpose. If any of his alleged premiership suitors are still keen after that performance then take the money now. Lets hope this is a wake up call for the players, the manager and the board and we see positive actions being taken in the various areas where we fans can see it is urgently and so obviously needed.

Before him was Grant, Roeder, Gunn, and since Lambo left, Hughton and Adams. Of course Adams will be given more time but his record of one draw and five defeats does not augur well for the season ahead. Cue the dithering board.

For heavens sakes....this is the first game of the season so give the fella....oh AND the team a chance. Alternatively do as Randy has suggested and find a "top flight" team to support... Oh, El Dongo.....if youre that fed up with paying £50 a month then give up your seat to someone who would willingly pay the money to support the team instead of just gobbing off....

  • Should have imposed ourselves on the game from the start - not just the second half. Wolves didn't have much to offer at all so am absolutely dumbfounded as to how we lost this game. Our midfield went awol.

  • Costs me nearly £50 a month to give NA his chance Randy. How about you?

  • Sorry, remind me how many games we have won under NA? How many goals we have scored away from home? We the long suffering fans are watching the club self destruct while he learns the job. OK, outthought by Wenger or Brendan Rodgers but Kenny Jackett? Who next Mick McCarthy??

  • How ironic that our tip-tippy, walk the ball into the net with carpet slippers tactic came unstuck with good, old fashioned wing play from Wolves. Hope NA tries a 4-4-2 and chooses the pace of our wingers to whip the ball into Grabban and Lafferty. Poor Martin cruelly exposed for height all afternoon with crosses, the guy is not a centre-back. Early days, however. OTBC.

  • "We defended particularly well" ... not in the match I saw! All three full backs were woeful and Russell Martin is not a centre back. We desperately need to shore up the defence but let's at least make a start by bringing back our best central defender, Ryan Bennett, and replacing Whittaker with Martin at right back. The need for these changes was evident before today.

  • Wolves should have been well ahead by the time City rallied in the second half in the run up to Olsson's dismissal. The three people most criticised by supporters have left - Hughton, RvW and Snodgrass but more of the same dismal football. This result confirms there is a lot of work sill to do if City are to make a push for promotion. Team set up wrongly today.

  • Doesn't give me any pleasure to say this but Adam's tactical naivety and inexperience has already come to the surface. I honestly don't think he will last more than a dozen games or at least until somebody with the necessary experience becomes available. I really am at a loss to understand my McNally sanctioned this appointment. Maybe time for him to fall on his sword as well. He has been utterly ineffective as a CE for the last two years.

  • A continuation of last season and still no goals. The Sky report reads very differently to Adams' assessment.

  • Straight out of the David Moyes at Man Utd book . Always say we played well , we were unlucky ... The man is a complete rookie at football management . He has never organised a pre-season before , or signed players .It`s all new to him . He has had seven games in charge , taken NCFC down , and failed to win a single game so far ...He may turn out to be a good manager , but would you let someone install central heating in your home , who had never done the job before ?

  • NA is a decent guy but this will all end in tears. He should never have been put in this position. Another awful decision by the board.

  • Oh jeez... just like always. .. just like always. Watford will rip us apart. Some geezer on Canary Call critised our Board as cheapskates and bully boy Butler put the boot in to defend them and get rid of the caller. Trouble ahead, methinks.

  • Looking forward to the next two games already. Comments reserved until then. Maybe this result will do us the biggest favour of the season. I just hope that the majority of our team, ( including the ones that didn't play) will cross the legs, light a few candles and quietly reflect when they get home tonight.
