Our Man Of The Match For Norwich City


For the second week running, Isaac Hayden has been voted as the best player in our man of the match poll. Of the 777 votes, Isaac collected 326 for 42% of the total votes. That was the same percentage that Isaac had in the poll for the Arsenal match.

Isaac has grown leaps and bounds since he secured a first-team place in the boxing day match last year at Liverpool. He now has a string of 22 straight starts in the league going back to that game.

Hayden has also taken the mantle as one of the leaders of the club and the 24-year-old has shown his maturity this summer. While he was able to do some good things over the weekend, Isaac has still expressed his disappointment in the overall performance at Norwich.

This is what Isaac has said after the game:

“It was poor.

“We were all over the place, defensively as a team.

“It is difficult after a game, looking back at things that could have been different but we were just miles off it.

“We didn’t get going or come alive until the last 15 minutes but by then the game was already done.

“I am disappointed and can’t really put my finger on where things went wrong.

“But there was quite a lot that went wrong.”

It was certainly everything Isaac has said it was. We hope Steve Bruce and the players can figure it out this week before the Tottenham game on Sunday.

    NOT A REPOST (sort of) edited
    My take on it is that the players are demoralised. Perez didn’t just wake up one morning and realise the club had no ambition they’ve all known for awhile now hoping there would be a takeover, looks like they’ve had the wool pulled over their eyes as well, they all have mates at other PL clubs and know what other less wealthy clubs have in terms of facilities and ambition. They’ve seen Rafa battle with Churnley to try and improve facilities and the club in general and now that is gone. They will all be aware of Churnleys comments about the facilities being adequate as they will be aware that Bruce has taken the job on the condition he doesn’t ask for a lick of paint let alone a swimming pool, They’ll all have read Joelinton’s team mates comments about us just being a stepping stone for the lad and will know that St Max has got a bad attitude, Lascelles will remember all too well what having characters like Jaanmat and Collocini in the dressing room done for moral. Yes, despite their public utterances and how great Ed and Neill think Bruce’s man management skills are, the players imo are thoroughly cheesed off with being in yet another self made relegation battle and are already showing signs of throwing the towel in.

    Jail

    Glad to see you have reposted as I would have. Well said.

    I was worried over the summer that Lascelles may have been tempted away, particularly to Arsenal and now there is really no reason why non of the players would want to stay.

    Rum doing when Wolverhampton Wanderers are giving Man Town a run for their money.
    Just hope that Newcastle United can do the same in a couple of weeks.

    Despite all their protestations are the players covering their backsides with “we love the gaffa” guff when in fact they think otherwise. When Bruce was appointed they might have thought kindly and said ok we’ll see what he says and does.
    Two games in and they’re thinking differently.

    If they proove us wrong fine, that’s what we want. But do they ?

    Repost for the night shift!

    Evening guys as an aside from the doom & gloom just a quick summary of the predictions you made.

    A total of 104 predictions were made (good effort by everyone) and running some mean/mode calculations:-

    We have an average position of 15th with 42 points reaching round 4 of both League & FA cup.

    For player of the season the most popular was Almiron selected by 36.5% followed by Hayden selected by 20.2% and then Longstaff selected by 15.4%

    Top goal scorer way out in front was Joelinton selected by 77.9% with an average of 11 goals and then second was Carroll selected by 7.7%.

    Make of that what you will but in the past I have found the averages to be not that far away from the actual ones come the end of the season!

    It’s the fans who will get us relegated because it’s what the fans want apparently.

    It won’t be the owner, it won’t be his wobbly desk boy or his spiv player scouting crew. It won’t be the perennial failure championship manager desperately bluffing his way as far along his last big chance as possible. It won’t be his youth club backroom staff who have little training innovation beyond long jogs and stride jumps while shouting “hoop-la!”. It won’t be the players downing tools knowing they’ll get paid whatever happens because for sure their chance to move up with a top class manager has vanished out of spite and for certain they aren’t winning anything now. It won’t be the dearth of homegrown talent coming through or the tragically comical training facilities. It won’t be the string of despicable lies or the cynical abuse of the club brand to sell someone else’s goods and just keep a top club on the tickover.

    It’ll be the fans who cursed the whole thing by wishing relegation upon us.

    Is it because Hayden has significantly improved or is it just he’s consistent and the rest of them have taken a plunge?

    What jail has posted is probably the truth.
    If we dont remove ashley we are fcuked.
    Little teams are leaving us behind.
    And its not from lack of fans turning up.

    Quote from Peter Crouch’s autobiography. Keep in mind he’s been to clubs like Stoke and Burnley etc.
    “It’s now standard to have swimming pools, ice-baths, hydrotherapy suites and anti-gravity treadmills.”

    I doubt Bruce has lost the dressing room yet, as others have suggested, but I’d just love it if he did, and they players took over, wouldn’t be long about shifting him on under that scenario.

    And we have a standard 225 litre green upright wheelie bin ice bath so jobs a good ‘un. You’d have to snap Crouch and bend him double to get him in one though.

    It comes to a point when even geordies think their club is a joke. We dont join in with the rest of the uk.
    Ashley has done that.
    Sick.
    Ashleys version of nufc is a disgrace, and the premier league know, they know they have failed us. Fit and proper test my arse.

    With Bruce attacking total football we will be fine!! 180 minutes and only a 92 min consolation goal v Norwich who were softened up by Liverpool the week before if we can keep spurs to below 4 the new entertainers will score 5
