The Opposition View

In the wake of yesterday's 5-2 defeat to Norwich city, here are some views on the game from Canaries' boss Paul Lambert and a few of their fans.


Lambert told the Canaries' official website that the most important thing was to get the win.

'For the club's sake I think we had to get a bit of freshness and throw in a couple of young lads who gave us some legs' said Lambert, adding that in modern football you have to have pace in your team.' This is presumably something he learned after managing Wycombe, where for two years he seemed to avoid introducing players with any pace at all.

Lambert went on to say that the two goals his side conceded were 'sloppy' and 'something we have to work on.'

Turning his thoughts to Norwich's impressive support, the new manager finished by saying: 'When you have a crowd like this coming you have to give them something to get them going and they responded brilliantly, I'm delighted for the fans that's for sure.'



The Norwich supporters were almost unanimous in their poor opinion of Wycombe.

Here are just a few comments taken from 'Football Forums' and 'The Pink'un,'

'Every time we had a set piece we looked like scoring. Actually, at 3-2 when we had that free kick, as we were awarded the decision, I said 'sorted, set piece, 4-2' and sure enough, Askou headed it home.'

'The first 10/15 mins were pretty even and quite end to end. We needed to get that first goal to settle the nerves and get on top. After that, we were never going to lose the game.'



NCFC_Shaun wrote:
'The most impressive thing about Lambert was his passion and effort. For the full 90 minutes he was up at the sideline ordering the players about and ensuring they knew what he wanted them to do. It was no coincidence that there was more 'fight' in the performance today.'

'We beat a very very very poor Wycombe team. I don't know why everyone is getting so excited about a win against a terrible team.'

'Thought Wycombe were very poor and we exploited that today with five well taken goals but it could've been ten.'

'Wycombe were pretty average really although they looked pretty good up top. Pittman has pace and Harrold caused us a few problems. They just had nothing in midfield and their defending was very poor.'

'Wycombe didn't even look capable of getting a shot in for the first 40 minutes. They did look more lively for a few minutes after they got it back to 3-2, but once we got the fourth it was all over and we probably should have had 7 or 8. I'd say the scoreline flattered them.'

'Wycombe didn't get a look in, the difference being Commitment! We totally dominated the midfield.'



ZippersLeftFoot wrote:
'Wycombe offered no attacking threat and never got players as far as the edge of our box. How we still conceded two goals after dominating the game against a non-entity of a side who didn't know what to do once they had the ball in our half, I will never know.'


Ouch. Scathing but not surprising really.
