Unfortunately, the lack of striking prowess made a hard-fought battle look like a dull one. So we must be thankful to Artur for saving the day.
Next 2 games are not to be written off moaning wise: we must keep the focus, players and supporters. Here comes the real crossroad: we will either materialise the fighting spirit or be sinking. Hope MoPo shows his real character by then.

Boruc had a very solid game and it does help having a keeper who can catch crosses. No disrespect to Davis but Boruc seems to have a bigger presence in the box which I think takes some pressure off the back four. Never a penalty, not much more you can say about that. Gaston needs to improve. He is so controlled on the ball but i feel he could be doing so much more. Jay Rod is getting better every game and I think his pace is needed at the moment. Lets not forget how young some of these players are still. Shaw, Clyne, Gaston, JRod, etc…..even cork, Morgan and Lallana are still developing.
Great support again from the away fans. I think the support is what will carry us over the finishing line. Keep getting behind them, 6 points from Liverpool and Chelsea!

Gaston needs to pick it up and start repaying the fee we paid hes not delivered only in glimpses all season and been off the pace for most games .
Cork and Schneiderlin again were excellent . Kept us with a good shape protected the back four as always and link up and get up to support the attackers always and reduced Norwich to very little and kept Snodgrass and Johnson very quiet .
They get through so much work .Break up so much play and cover every one else on the pitch .We really are lucky to have them in there every game .If they dont play you see the difference immediately .
Ricky did ok but as someone said was marked out of it by the excellent Turner.
Hes still a class act gets through a mountain of work each game is so intelligent in all he does and has to be close to an England call up ..Great vision and has that Sheringham brain sometimes too quick for those around him .
Adam is trying to hard i think, maybe to impress Ponch who maybe doesnt see what weve seen the last 3 - 4 years from lala and maybe thinks Ponch doenst seem convinced he has what Ponch wants . .
Center halves did ok .
Luuuuuuuuuke is immense going forward ...a 10 million price tag already(Arsenal ) at 17 but still can learn on his positional play when defending .But he is 17 ,ok !
Was it a Pen ?
Yoshida good couple of saving tackles .Going forward my Nan (93) could have crossed better than he did trying to pick out any of our forwards .
Ging Gang ..never been a fan ,hes not Prem quality.He was poor when he came on and dint give us anything different in his play .
Goalie . Great job Great save great point at least in the 92 nd minute to stop a Pen Woohoo.... You got and earned us a point anything less would have been a robbery the way we played and took the game to Norwich .
Overall we played really well as we have every game since Ponch came in .
I didnt think we pressed as much today and saved energy and didnt look as vulnerable or tired in the last 10 minutes as we have the last few months .We seemed to pick and choose when we pressed high or middle of the park and we benefited from that today .
But we have 6 points from 21 since ponch came in ..Its not enough .We need a decent March haul of points or we could go into April in the bottom 3 which will be hard to get out of when we play some tough games from then til mid may .
we need 10 points from somewhere from our last 9 at the rate we are scoring we wont get there..
We have to win at Reading beat West Ham @home and win one more and one draw somewhere .
QPR are going to have bumper month and claw back the gap to be within a point at least if not off the bottom by end of March .
Wigan are like us play good football and can beat top teams on their day .But they know how to stay up they have done it before .
Villa are good going forward but cant stop conceding and Reading are down out and own unless they can get a win or 2 quick have lost all momentum..
We have to win that one at Reading its now A MUST WIN AWAY !
But again I come back to the same question .If Punch doesnt start today @ Norwich why didnt we bring him in on instead of Ging Gang ?????
What did he do wrong and why didnt he play ?
