A Yohan 'Cabaye-less' Toon line up couldn't break doon 'The Custards' defence despite hittin' the woodwork THREE times durin' the game!
We aalso had othaa glorious chances which were missed plus a couple of free kicks that Paris bound Cabaye would surely have put away!
Cabaye's departure for a reported £23 million just FIVE days before wor derby against The SMBs iz unforgivable in wor opinion and we can anly hope that 'The Fat Controller's' decision to pocket 'the bit' will not come back to haunt us at the weekend!?
We were the better team throughout by 'a country mile' and shud have easily won this encoontaa against a p*ss poor team who will definatleee be in the relegation mix come next May!
Sammy Ameobi proved to be wor star man of the game az the rain poured doon @ Carrow Road!
Loic Remy hit the post orly on and this waz repeated by Norwich defender Johnson who kicked the baall against hiz own post!
Ben Arfa missed a great chance when it waz easier to score and we went in at the break goal-less, when we shud have been at least THREE up!
Boos from the home faithful? then rang oot az the teams left for the dressin' rooms!
Again in the 2nd period we came oot in positive mood and Ben Arfa waz felled in the box in the 52nd minute but the ref waved 'play on'!
Then on the hour mark Ben Arfa waz fouled on the edge of the box and this time the ref awarded us a free kick. This Waz taken by Remy and hiz shot boonced off the bar and behind for a goal kick!--like aa say---the THORD time we had hit the frame of the goal! <(treble curses!)
And then the 'moment' of the game in the 80th minute when Remy tangled with Norwich's Johnson and waz adjudged to have 'stuck the nut on him' (a head-but!)
The ref sends both players off, which means wor top goalscorer will miss the derby match on Saturday! <(it just went from bad to worse!)
'The Canary Custard' fans torned a bit nasty and started singin': "YOU DIRTY NORTHERN BUSTARDS!" <(or words to that effect!) az they point towards the Toon fans. We respond by singin': "YER JUST A BUNCH OF PIG FARMERS!", a reference to the many such pig farms in the Norfolk countryside that yoo can see from the train windows az yoo approach the ootskirts of Norwich!
|"SPOT THE BACON SARNIES!"
(A PIG FARM ON THE PETERBOROUGH TO NORWICH LINE!)
It somehow ended goal-less---the luckiest point that Norwich will get this season! <(If anly we had a player like Yoh** ******!)
