Norwich away

Recommended Posts

In 2011-2012 Norwich achieved 5 wins and 5 draws away from home collecting a total of 20 points on the road.  In the 35 away matches since then Norwich have won 4 times with a total haul of just 21 points.  The current squad, on paper at least, is the strongest since returning to the Premier League.  So why the abysmal performances away from home, each one it seems plumbing new depths of ineptitude?  Writing off virtually half a season''s fixtures is always going to make surviving in the Premier League problematic.  The players interviewed after each defeat always sound dejected and dispirited and seek safety in the cliche of ''working harder to put things right on the training pitch''.  Their responses and the record point to a deep problem.  Last Saturday in a Match of the Day interview Tony Pulis commented after Palace''s victory over Chelsea - my players, most of whom have never played in the Premier League, buy into what we are trying to do.  Do the Norwich players ''buy into'' the set up away from home?  Clearly the approach has failed consistently despite all the hard work.  Or is it simply that failure begets failure and there is no one to provide the inspiration and belief to break the circle.
