Chris Hughton insists he never doubted Norwich City would get back to winning ways in the Premier League.

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

The Canaries’ last-gasp 2-1 win over Everton at Carrow Road was their first top flight success since a pre-festive defeat at West Brom ended their 10-game club-record Premier League unbeaten run.

“I didn’t think we deserved to lose there over the Christmas period. It was a tight game,” reflected Hughton on his side’s 2-1 Hawthorns’ reverse. “We had four matches at that stage that we lost by one goal. I think the performances have been good enough. There are games we have lost we perhaps haven’t deserved to win, but they have been close games. Apart from the FA Cup game, I would say we have had three bad defeats, two against Liverpool and one against Fulham. In every other game, we’ve either been in the game or I’ve been quite happy with what I’ve seen. Those are the margins. When you are up against so many good teams it’s very difficult.”

Norwich’s weekend win over the Toffees was a huge boost to their survival prospects after edging eight points clear of the current bottom three.

“In the end, there is only one thing that matters and that is come the last game of the season, we’re still in this division, we’ve got enough points to still be in it,” said Hughton.

“It’s difficult. The teams that can be that consistent are the teams that are used to this division, have the quality and are regular members of the division.

“We’re still striving to be that and along the road with that come the inconsistencies. The spirit has never been lacking. It has been there all season.

“This is a tough league to get wins and if I look how we play, we play a tighter game and perhaps it is difficult to get the wins we want.”

City’s next assignment is a daunting trip to champions-elect Manchester United on Saturday. Norwich’s home Premier League win over the Red Devils marked a high point in Hughton’s tenure, but the City chief ranked his side’s latest Everton comeback in the same bracket.

“Yes, just maybe because of the timing,” he said. “There are pivotal games in the season where the run we were on I just felt we needed a win, so it was right up there with the United and Arsenal games. It gives everybody a lift and a nice feel to go into what is the hardest game in our football calendar. This was a big win for us. I watched Everton’s game at Manchester United where they lost 2-0 and I thought David Moyes was probably a little bit unfair on his own team, because I thought they were excellent to go to Old Trafford, and to have the possession they did. They are a very good team, full of top-class players and any victory against the likes of them is always a big one.”

  • Stew, what is your real issue with Chris Hughton? It cant be football? The gentleman has taken us to 12th at the moment, same position we were last year; We went one further in the cup this year than last year. We have a team stronger than last year, IMHO, and getting stronger. So, what is your problem? Why bring on someone earlier, if you are not sure that their impact will be more than what you have on? Good managers dont just change things and rely on luck. Now that he has a team that can change things, he is using it. IHWT. OTBC!!

  • Maybe the cost-effective way to increase ground capacity IS for the authorities to allow standing areas? From recent polls, for what they`re worth, the majority of City fans would be in favour of that. Football finance remains a dodgy topic. The new initiatives ought to curb the "Rich potentate\Oil Thief" syndrome, but will they? Do fans care, as long as their team has a wealthy benefactor? It`d be great if a core of Prem teams could survive and prosper using "natural" income, however bloated and distorted by TV money that is. What happens further down the `food chain` is the big worry. Reference Hoots` signings; they`ve all turned out to be good so far; Bass & Snods in particular. Bradley`s risen to the challenge, too! OTBC

We dont want to go bankrupt looking for success. We havent the money that the top teams have at the moment, and that is being realistic. Nothing wrong with being ambitious, but being overambitious could cost you everything. See the likes of Ip5wich and Pompey. And this is not just in Football. We do ok this season and come back next and build more. OTBC, IHIT!!

  • Some of the talk of this pot of gold next season concerns me a little. I'm old enough to remember house price discussions in the 80s, "my house went up in value by £20,000 in the last month", completely missing the point that everybody else's had too so the real value stayed the same. We SHALL have a lot more money next season but so will the likes of Southampton, Wigan et al. Even Reading, V111la and the Bottoms will have a vastly inflated parachute payment. Supply and demand, when there's loadsamoney flying about prices go up accordingly.

  • Some timely comments, Dark Moon, well posted. Stew, you are following in the footsteps of The Parsnip, ie. never allowing the facts to get in the way of a full-on diatribe. Ged (who I suspect is your Archant stable companion) would be proud of you. What has Hughton ever won? Let's look at some facts: 398 first class games for Tottenham, scoring 19 goals from full back; 1981 and 82 FA Cup winners medals; 1981 Charity Shield winner; 1984 UEFA Cup winner; first black player to play for the Republic, winning 53 caps, played in all games at Euro 88. As a manager, ten years as assistant with Tottenham, two years as assistant with the Republic, won the Championship as manager with Newcastle, then last season took a moderate Birmingham side (look where they are now) into the play-offs and the knock out rounds of the Europa Cup. With regard to what he inherited at City, he didn't take over "a damn good team" as you put it, but one which had only won 2 out of its last 13 games under Lambert (I'm a Lambert fan, but it's a fact). Also he brought in seven players, not just Snodgrass. I hope I respect other people's viewpoints but it would be helpful if you could start by getting your facts right. I think CH has got the qualifications to manage City and that we should get behind him. And, of course, I know what I'm talking about because I played a few games for Yarmouth Grammar School reserves in the late 50s. Bit less of a track record than Hughton, though.

Some of the people who have been frustrated at the lack of subs, no plan b, defensive approach etc surely don't believe they would do a better job than CH, but they are entitled to express their views without being abused. One thing that us City fans have in common is that we have a view on everything...long may it continue, enjoy the banter, vive la difference!

  • Steady On is perhaps a little too acerbic in his views sometimes but I can understand his frustration in response to some of the ludicrous anti-Hughton comments which have been submitted to this board. Is there really any one contributor here who believes that a man of Hughton’s experience and expert judgement would pay any attention to what we have to say in regulating his tactics? I have not read one contribution since the beginning of the season that dissuades me from believing that any one of us amateurs (I include myself) would already have consigned Norwich City to relegation by now! The facts do Hughton great credit. In the like-for-like fixtures played against the 16 clubs the Canaries have played this season and last (in other words, not counting Reading, Southampton or West Ham) Hughton has accrued 29 points and 6 clean sheets; Lambert 28 points and 1 clean sheet. Lambert, in his time, was a superb manager. I firmly believe that Hughton is even better. Furthermore, his signings have been inspired. Bassong is arguably the best centre-back I have seen at Carrow Road in 40 years and his developing partnership with Turner highly encouraging. Snodgrass has not put a foot wrong and, perhaps, is on the way to player of the season recognition. Mocked for ensuring goalkeeping back-up were Ruddy to be injured, Hughton in fact should be praised for his foresight. There are many other things to be said in his favour - not least that his gentlemanly demeanour is a credit to the club we love - but, please, let’s not think that he is influenced by the views of us numpties! We should count ourselves fortunate to have a manager of such status and, in David McNally, a man who has exercised nothing but exceptional leadership in the last 3-4 years.

  • Dark Moon, I have not had the pleasure of aquainting myself with any of your previous postings. This may be your first. If you have been on board since the day Lambert departed, and Hughton was installed you may be aware that this site has been infiltrated by many who do not have the best interest of the club at heart. I am NOT one of them!... One of the infiltrators has done very little apart from hurling vitriolic abuse at all and sundry who have the audacity to put their opinions on paper. In the interests of fellow contributors, I have courted this vicious vandal who is besotted by our manager in an attempt to return pleasure to our daily chats. I think I have had success in the fact that a name change has taken place, and much of the regular vomit has eased.....Comparisons with Lambert are not easy, because it it quite apparent that Lambert turned his back on Norwich City at about this time last year. (Sunderland away marks the spot). However some of the decisions about team selection remind me of the pull a name from the hat that Lambert resorted to. ….I like you, hope that Hughton the gentleman is the right man, and he can take this club to new hieghts. And Ghana Dom, I don't have an issue of importance!. ….To crown it all Dark Moon, you are even getting agreement from the alta ego of the venomous viper.....

  • Please, tell us more Stew. I notice that Brewer and the usual lot are not defending your POV. Such a shame. Cut off. Like a leper.

  • The trouble is, once an aggressive agenda has been set, it tends to drag a lot of people into it. I confess my guilt, too. I suppose it`s human nature, but it is a pity when conversation is rendered up to conflict.

  • The thing is, like most folk with humility and intelligence, Stew is clever enough to realise how stupid he might be. Some people, sharky, are so stupid they believe they`re clever.

  • Right , I'll try again . Very good read DM , Herr Fleck added the vital component in that we as fans can agree or disagree depending on how we see it . We will always have differing views on the same things , and should be allowed to raise them without being attacked . Questioned yes , asked to clarify yes . Insulted and abused never . The best form of defence as we all know is attack . I accept that I have been guilty of responding " in kind " , but frankly I'd rather talk football than argue with fellow City fans . Let's start talking football , and keep the differing views coming because that's why we come on here after all OTBC

  • Also , Steady On I totally agree with the having money issue , when you look at it we won't know how it affects the transfer market until it starts , but no debts is massive as not many can say that .

  • “In the end, there is only one thing that matters and that is come the last game of the season, we’re still in this division, we’ve got enough points to still be in it,” said Hughton...... Well Chrissy My lovely!... You and your avid fan may think that is success, I don't . ….You started with a damn good team, added Snodgrass, and beggered things up. There have been a couple of 'highs' but there has also been that result against Luton, making us a laughing stock . Live that down!

  • Dark Moon's post probably the best I've seen on here. Fair play. Haha, what fun it is to be a Norwich fan at times. So glad I didn't end up supporting anyone else. :D Very optimistic for the future. OTBC

  • Some timely comments Dark Moon, totally agree with you. Stew, you seem unwillingly to let the facts get in the way of a full-on diatribe. As a player CH played 398 games for Tottenham, scoring 19 goals (from full-back). FA Cup winners medals in both 1981 and 82, 1981 Charity Shield winner, 1984 UEFA Cup winner. First black player to turn out for the Republic, winning 53 caps and playing in all games in Euro 88. Followed that with ten years as assistant manager at Tottenham and two years as assistant with the Republic. As a manager, won the Championship with Newcastle and then last year took a moderate Birmingham side (look where they are now) into the Championship play-offs and the knock-out rounds of the Europa Cup. That to me looks like a decent set of qulaifications to manage City, certainly better than mine, because all I can say about myself football-wise is that I played a few times for Yarmouth Grammar School's reserve team in the late 50s (scoring 3 goals from the right side of midfield). How about you?

  • Careful Doc, all that intellectual, educated, upper-class, posh talk about tautology could bring wrath upon you. On another board, I touched on irony, paradox and oxymoronica, so somebody might think we are the same person..... Poor MBA was once accused of being me, Lobbo and me of being `one and the same` and I was once accused of being Ged!! :-(
