Norwich City 0, West Ham 0 - what the nationals said

The national newspapers' views on Norwich City's 0-0 draw at home to West Ham.

The Sunday Mirror: 'Goals are proving hard to come by . . . on the plus side for Chris Hughton, his side are proving a tough nut to crack since leaking five goals on the opening day at Fulham.'

The Mail on Sunday: 'West Ham bid �6million for striker Grant Holt in the summer. On this evidence, they should be grateful Norwich refused to do business . . . he will go into a fifth league game still searching for a goal.'

The Independent on Sunday: 'Holt, the battering ram captain, seems to have lost most of his fire since he won his three-year contract from the club . . . the ferocity, the power and willingness to risk himself were missing.'
