Back in the relegation zone now as the league table stands, need Man City to beat Norwich.

When I wrote that it was still 0-0, but I did prophetically think that 'it wouldn't surprise me if Norwich went and beat them', as I felt like that would be just our luck. Really need City to get at least one back before half-time.

Aguero just pulled one back...  This is when Norwich's makeshift back line will completely fall apart.  Predicting 2-5 City.

Hopefully City can fully turn it around now.

Can't believe what I'm seeing.

Actually I can as Otamendi and Stones are ridiculously overrated CBs. Usually protected by their club system but both look bad for their national teams on a frequent basis.

The passing Norwich were doing was very pleasing on the eye, they showed no dear, didn't over respect Man City. We on the other hand will take a one nil lead and defend like there's 10 minutes to go

This is why it's annoying when people talk as if we shouldn't hope to beat the likes of Everton or West Ham because they've got some good players, all Premier league sides have good players, that's the point of being in the Premier league, can't just wait until we play someone like Brighton to dare to think that we might be able to get a win, Norwich have just beaten City, Newcastle have beaten Spurs, and we're going to have to get a few unexpected results as the season progresses.

Everton have plenty of good players we beat them. It can be done, just not on a regular basis. If Norwich stay up the vast majority of their points will still come against teams in the bottom half I'd bet.

We're in trouble, but we all knew we would be. We just need to get out of it.

Everton have a lot of good players, and I was one of the select few saying that we should be hoping to beat them, rather than writing off our chances. Can't keep writing off our results or results of other teams that have an affect on us, or before one knows it we will be embedded in the relegation zone. Yes West Ham are a good team, but I feel it's a game we should be looking to get three points from, and people will be entitled to feel disappointed if that doesn't happen, although given other results I personally won't be too disappointed with a draw.

That was a phenomenal performance from Norwich. Against Man City and still religiously playing out from the back with some wonderful passing moves.

One good about it is that Man City lost, don't want them winning the title every season.

Shocked at how good Norwich are to be honest. Hardly blessed with excellent players but this manager has got them super fit and confident on the ball and they all know precisely what their roles are.

Fair play to Norwich, not changing their style against anyone. I said in the Smith thread recently that we need to play our football. Play on the front foot, the players we have purchased aren’t good at sitting back.
