Danny Graham shows poor Norwich that Championship life will be tougher
Watford have modelled best fake canada goose jacket their new away strip on the famous red-and-black stripes of Milan, and there were times last night, particularly in the first half, that Norwich were so poor Malky Mackay’s young team best canada goose coat for women were almost made to resemble the Rossoneri in action as well as appearance.
The problem for Norwich was that having come up as champions, manager Paul Lambert made seven signings over the summer, six of whom started. Unsurprisingly, they looked and played like a team of strangers.
Watford, in contrast, started with no new signings at all. They came perilously close to going into administration last December, but avoided both that and – remarkably, given the number of senior players sold to reduce their debt – relegation. Further departures over the summer have left Mackay with a threadbare and painfully inexperienced squad who are among the canada goose coat 0f favourites for relegation, though they were boosted yesterday when the club somehow found £500,000 to sign the 22-year-old striker Troy Deeney from Walsall.
Deeney was among the substitutes tonight, and saw an opening during which the visitors more than gave as good as they got, and it was no great surprise when Watford took the lead. John Eustace had already put one drive over the bar can i wash my canada goose coat when he was allowed to bring down a high cross in the penalty area, evade Andrew best price for best fake canada goose jacket canada goose jacket Crofts’ challenge, and drive a low shot inside the goalkeeper John Ruddy’s right-hand post.
Surman’s free-kick brought a good save from Watford keeper Scott Loach, but the manner in which Norwich conceded a second really did deflate the crowd. Lloyd Doyley pumped a ball up to Graham, the forward played a neat one-two with fellow striker Marvin Sordell, and with City centre-half Michael Nelson trailing ponderously in his wake, Graham ran into the area and beat Ruddy.
Only Ruddy’s fingertips prevented Will Buckley making it three soon afterwards, but half-time gave City a chance to regroup, and seven minutes after the break Wes Hoolahan’s driving run and Jackson’s intelligent back-heel gave Crofts, running into space in the penalty buying cheap canada goose outlet jacket online area, the chance to drive can you buy canada goose jacket online a shot firmly beyond Loach.
However, Watford continued to expose City’s defence and Adrian Mariappa looked certain to score when Ruddy’s unaccountable fumble presented him with an open goal. Taken by surprise, the defender guided best canada goose jacket his header the wrong side of the post. Lambert’s introduction of last season’s top scorer Grant Holt, who missed most of City’s pre-season games with injury, was roundly applauded but it was Graham who had the final word, albeit with a gentle shot that should never have beaten Ruddy.
Nelson’s injury-time strike gave City hope they hardly deserved, but it was too little too late. “It’s a young squad, and a small one canada goose canada outlet, but hopefully a few Premier League teams will see this performance, and the way we play, and be more inclined to loan us a player or two,” said Mackay.
Lambert felt, rightly, that his team improved average price for a canada goose jacket in the second half, but accepted they had not done enough to earn anything from the game. “We were decent after the break but we’re in a higher division now, where mistakes are that much more likely to get punished.”
