The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 1-1 draw at Tottenham Hotspur.

Sunday Mirror: “Andre Villas-Boas was left in no doubt what the Tottenham fans think about his start to life at White Hart Lane after he was twice booed down the tunnel.”

The Mail on Sunday: “Before the goal, Norwich had been clearly superior, both in terms of chances and style. Tottenham relied on Brad Friedel, soon surely to be replaced by Hugo Lloris.”

The Independent on Sunday: “Norwich knew precisely what to do, having won here five months ago. They did defend astutely and picked their moments in attack. Snodgrass was precise in his work from the right.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “The afternoon was something of a triumph for Chris Hughton, who had served the White Hart Lane club as a player and a coach.”

The Observer: “Robert Snodgrass, whose composure and craft was a wonderful feature of Norwich’s gameplan, seized the moment to prove that there is value to be had at both ends of the transfer market.”

  • I still sort of wish Ian Culverhouse had stayed, though. Perhaps he does too, now? People round here still talk about Ian Crook, Martin! Terrific player he was. If people get on `Hoots` a bit, it`s `cos we worry a lot! Most of us think he`s the best choice we could have made - most of the time.

  • Hello Martin. No fear, we Norwich supporters are always supportive and generous to managers who are honest, straight talking, and do the right thing.

  • As a Spurs supporter I'm happy for Chris Hughton that he is making a success of his managerial career at Nowrich. Nowrich therefore should be good to him and his assistant. They are both exSpurs men.

  • Let's not forget the greatest player for us oldtimers ever to appear in a yellow and green shirt,Martin Peters,although as ex-Spurs players go Paul Gascoigne in his prime takes some beating.Shame he didn't ever play for the Canaries.
