As part of our analysis of the 4-2 defeat to Norwich City yesterday we have some video highlights, or perhaps I should say lowlights, for you all to take a peek at.
Forgetting the shocking defending for a moment, hard I know, but I have to give Demba Ba a mention. I know it’s early days but I really do think he is our best striker since Shearer. I commented on it last night, but the guy has everything. He has pace, power, strength, finesse, aerial ability and he knows where the back of the net after bagging 11 goals in 11 games for us so far this season. He’ll be a big miss in January.
Moving onto managerial interviews now and first up we have Alan Pardew who was left frustrated by the current injury list that he is having to deal with. Whilst I agree that it’s frightening just how many first-team players we have out at the moment it’s also worth pointing out that injuries are part and parcel of the game.
And finally we have the victorious Paul Lambert who feels that his side was worth the victory, even though I disagree, but then again I would. I personally feel that the only difference was the effectiveness of his sides set pieces, or should I say our ineffective attempts at defending them.
Just call it a hunch, but I don’t think too many of you will be bothered about me adding longer highlights so I’ll just leave it as is. However if somebody does want them, or even the full match download links then just leave a comment asking for them and I’ll point you in the right direction.
Howay the lads!
