Norwich City Chief Executive In Goal Assist
Norwich City Chief Executive In Goal Assist
Monday, 14th Feb 2011 13:09

Noriwch City's winner against Reading came in the 94th minute of a game that the fourth offical had just shown was the minimum amout of added time.

Last gasp effort? Hardly - this goes down to a desire to win that oozes from every pore of each Norwich City supporter, player, manager and boardroom staff.

Reading had hoofed a ball into row Z in the hope that the clock woulod run down.

However, the ball was intercepted by Chief Executive David McNally, who threw the ball from the Director's Box down to the touchline and Adam Drury's waiting arms.

Drury never wasted a moment as he threw to Andrew Surman, who put Andrew Crofts through who bypassed Wilbraham to meet Holt who just side-footed the ball into the net on the near post.

And, as the good books say, the crowd went wild.

David McNally for Player of the Month?

Think you will find that McNally actually threw it to Lambert who then player a sort of scrum half pass to Drury before the throw!

A goal that went through all areas of the club!

You are probably right. One heck of a throw, though. And you're right. It was AWESOME

Lots of discussion this week on football forums, including here, on two subjects – the petition to lobby parliament to allow limited numbers of supporters back into football grounds, and of course the return of that old chestnut from Man City Chief Executive Ferran Soriano, introducing Premier League ‘B’ teams into the EFL. First off, I don’t mind admitting I’ve signed the petition ( https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/552036 ), as have 192,779 others at the time of writing, though I don’t actually think it’ll make any difference. I can completely understand why some do not think this is a good idea, as second-wave spikes of coronavirus infection pop up all over the country (mainly because – let’s face it – some people are dicks and can’t be trusted to sit the right way on a toilet). But to me, the two go hand in hand (not dicks and toilets) – whilst football clubs throughout the country struggle financially without spectators, we are always going to be under threat of this sort of ‘B’ team nonsense as a condition of financial support from the Premier League fat cats. They got their way in 2016 with the EFL trophy, who’s to say they won’t again when the financial squeeze really starts to tighten its grip without paying customers through the turnstiles? Robbie has featured prominently in this debate in recent weeks, and looks like he will again on Sky tomorrow if this tweet from Sophy Ridge is anything to go by -
