I am yet to know what Walcott has to offer us,between him and Elyounoussi absolutely nothing. The second half we gave the ball away so many times we might of had yellow shirts on.So disappointing after the start we literally folded in the second half it was as if we thought we could stroll around and win.Stange pick with Diablo playing instead of Tella don’t know what he has to do to get a game.Very dissatisfied today should of been three points 😩

We take off Romeu, play with 3 hulking centre backs and can't defend the next corner. There's no way that should go in with those 3.
So we then have a series off corners from one of the Prems supposed best crossers NONE of our big defenders can get on the end of it. We need to start defending corners AND scoring from them.

How did we lose that? Should have scored 5 in the first half Yet another blunder by McCarthy for their first goal.

Same old same old. Dominant in first half
but nothing to show for it. Sloppy play in the second half lead to Norwich taking the lead.Norwich just wanted it more in the second half.

McCarthy at fault for both goals. Salisu and Diallo were also bad. Diallo seemed to shrink, couldn't make a pass, kept on getting caught in possession. We seemed to forget how to get the ball out of our half. Formation fell apart.

Subs made us worse. Broja got lost up front. Walcott had an ineffective game even by Walcott standards. Lyanco came on and we then seemingly changed to a 4-2-4 formation with Diallo and JWP out numbered in midfield where defenders were either forced to hang onto the ball too long or hit long balls to Norwich players.

Shame as it started well.

Still Ralph has got 10 PTS from 15. Hopefully just a blip.

Saints fans sounded great tho. Shame the team couldn't match them.

Horrendous game. NcCarthy needs to be benched after this display,. Both goals on him. Also, Ralph made horrible subs and deserves blame for this one too. Salusi, KWP and Diallo had their worst games this season and Theo should only ever sit on the bench after his display. I am so pissed off right now we deserve to lose on that second half display. UGH is the best I can do.

Disastrous result.
We were excellent in the first half, take the lead after 3 minutes, but then almost immediately concede from a typical McCarthy habit - not being able to protect his near post. He should just have palmed that header out for a corner but in stead he palmed it into his own goal.
We totally dominated Norwich for the rest of the first half but couldn't get another goal.
We were as poor as Norwich in the second half , and midway through it I thought ok let's take a point.
With a little more than 10 minutes left, a big Norwich defender, Hantley (or Hanley), gets on the end of a corner and - although from about 11 yards - McCarthy is unable to stop the header towards his near post, although McCarthy has a good position on his line, and the ball bounces in front of him and goes in....
Awful to watch.
Ralph took off in-form-Adams after an hour to protect him from injury because Adams played a full match vs Denmark for Scotland only a few days ago, but that made us far less dangerous. Likewise with Moi who played for Norway 2 days ago.
Walcott and Broja were brought on but they didn't make a difference. With 2 minutes left of injury time Walcott missed a header from a beauty of a cross from JWP. He really should have scored.
Very disappointing defeat - and, for me, a sort of "sign" that we will probably struggle to move into the top half of the table, unfortunately.

Giving the wrong keeper a contract.

Where was Stuart Armstrong???

I'm SURE the usual Ralph suck ups will be here, looking for reactions from true supporters that want Ralph out but whatever... the fact, yet again, is we lost the game because Ralph HASNTGOTACLUE, he proved to be inept with his subs, his formations and PL life in general.

His interview was embarrassing, blaming everything apart from himself. He MUST GO. We will be relegated with him at the helm. Do not give him another ££ in Jan, he needs to go now.
