The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 1-0 win over Arsenal.

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

Sunday Mirror: “Quite simply, Norwich were braver, more intense and defended for their lives. Arsenal were never allowed to find their rhythm or momentum.”

The Mail on Sunday: “On a night when Chris Hughton’s Norwich fought for all they were worth, this was Arsenal at their infuriating worst. Lots of possession but very little end product.”

The Observer: “The shadow of Paul Lambert is one Chris Hughton has struggled to emerge from, but he can rightly feel a large step into the light has been taken.”

The Independent: “None worked harder or to greater effect than Tettey, a commanding figure in only his fourth game in English football . . . his partnership with Johnson being a crucial element.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “In deepest Norfolk, Arsenal walked headlong into an ambush, outrun and out-thought by a Norwich team fighting for their Premier League survival.”

  • Aaah, that was another board, waclor. You refer to the similar effect that being bed or bench-ridden can have on the sensitive regions of a spare goalie?

  • Brewer you are very unkind. Bedsores are no joke and can be very painful.

  • Sorry Brewer I suffered an error 503 and something called guru meditation. This comment was intended to follow yours concerning the Norwich goalkeeper crisis.

  • Hello Timbo! Imagine when the Telegraph hack got lost and saw the Zombies shambling out of the mists at Nogdam End, all mumbling "ha` yer gotta loight, boi?" and "Wass yet baatum dropped out?". Edward Woodward would have turned to a block of wood, wouldn`t he?
