Stoke first half also?

Stoke first half and Bristol City away are probbaly the only times we've really hit top gear. 

Perhaps we're just a better side away from home? Makes sense, as we're afforded more space to counter.

Table tonight (top half). Looks nice and hopeful for 2021

Wow some people on here. I didn’t actually say we’d played badly first half, I said exactly how it’d been. We won again but we should’ve won more comfortably and we didn’t and Barnsley had several decent chances to nick a goal. Is that not what happened? This league is really tight and GD could well come into it so we need to start being more decisive in the final third. If we were, we’d be storming the league!

I would be more worried if we were not creating chances in the first place but we are missing a staggering number of very, very easy chances in some of these games which leave us hanging on nervously at the end when we should be out of sight.

big win that but should have been by three or four goals, as should Tuesday have been.

My argument with your post was your summation of our season as not decisive enough. As others have said, I’ll happily take a repeat of the first half of the season, it’s been decisive enough to win games and get us to the top of the league.

Absolutely superb win. Not our best performance by any means, but on another day we probably would have won that by two or three.

Always good to go into a break with a win!

Didn't realize how lopsided Bournemouth's (and Watford's)  home and away form is (with both still to come to Carrow Road). Maybe, Stoke could do us a favour tonight

Injuries permitting, we need Gibson and Hanley paired together as much as possible. Anyone know whether we can purchase Gibson in Jan, or is the clause only at end of season if we go up?

The missus bought me this for Christmas. Made out of old errea shirts. 'Wear that' she said.....'They might score!' 

And........Emi did! And no I'm not wearing it for luck again!

Are you sure she didn't say 'You' instead of 'They'?

Another dreadful performance from Cantwell , I would have scored those 2 chances.

Time for him to be given a long rest and give the young Polish chap a good run on the team 

I'd wager a few shillings you wouldn't 🙂

Edited by ......and Smith must score.

Haha....mine always says to me "they'll score in a minute....I've prayed to St Anthony".

She is a lapsed Catholic btw.

Apparently St Anthony is the saint you call on when you're missing something

Seven corners and no headers on target

You do know it's not compulsory to score with a header from a corner?

I think being clear at the top when we know this team can play better and score more goals is a great position to be in. Happy New Year.

We nearly scored direct from one in the 2nd half.

I reckon when we do score one it'll come pinging across and someone will accidentally knock it in with his meat and two veg.

Be worth the pain with a statue outside the ground....

He he.

The boss didn’t look very happy when ever the cameras caught him.

Be interesting to hear his comments tonight.

Mrs KG made me one from one of the old Aviva shirts where the logo had been melted when ironed.

But I lost it on a hospital visit where they make you take it off and wear one of theirs.

What was good was the receptionist said "Good Morning Mr Norwich City". Nice to be recognised. I might use that on my letterheadings.

It was a decent game, good Barnsley side to be fair and they actually gave us a game.

Cantwell so unlucky, some great touches and runs. Buendia immense, his tracking and tackles were faultless.

Good team performance and deserved three points, minor nibble Vrancic isn’t a number 10.......McClean was good today.
