If you were a neutral or a Cherries fan the 0-0 draw yeaterday was a dirge.
If you are simply a Norwich fan it was a triumph against odds, a response to adversity and a heavy defeat and a valuable point with an edge of disappointment not to claim all three.
But if you are a purist who understands the nuances of the beautiful game it was a classic moment (they aren't all about goals).
The sight of a loyal ageing warrior just back from injury showing such match fitness and stamina. A veteran player taking the armband from a young departing leader and marshaling his troops. A player out of position alongside another still adapting to English football and also out of position and forging a partnership. It was magnificent.
Tettey and Amadou roved across the back looking like covering midfielders without back up. Their style and motion added to the drama and the against the odds scenario.
Tettey has had some fine moments but this was amongst his greatest and made a forgettable match one to remember.
The clean sheet and point are at least as important to our mentality and morale going forwards as the two wins.
Necessity might be the mother of invention but she is the grandmother of character.
