    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.

    Ratings v Bournemouth

    I would give Krul 7 for his marshaling and leadership and McLean (not my favourite) 7 for finally stepping up to the plate and making his presence felt.
  3. He certainly played well until he went off. Great character.

    That's An Absolutely Superb Point

    This is what can happen when you don't throw a game away first half but build into it.

    Mark Bowen

    And as for Tony Powell, quite unrecognisable. Paul Mariner takes the prize for bad ageing though.

    Mark Bowen

    He doesn't look anything like the player I remember gliding past people pushing his trolley in Asda in 1994.
  7. Bournemouth couldn't have felt hard done by if we had won. Good point though. The lesson is: earn the right to play our football. Once we had we looked fluent going forward and played a high back line.
  8. What's the antonym of 'vitality?'
  9. Maybe we have to accept dire matches rather than giving games away?
