Chris Hughton hailed Alex Tettey’s wonder strike that sealed Norwich City’s priceless 2-0 Premier League win over Sunderland at Carrow Road.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The Norwegian international unleashed a stunning 30-yard volley past Vito Mannone to double the Canaries’ first half lead after Robert Snodgrass had earlier slotted his fourth goal in the midfielder’s last eight matches.

Norwich’s win in front of a raucous Carrow Road support moved them seven points clear of the Wearsiders - who were reduced to 10 men deep in stoppage time when Marcos Alonso was sent off for a second bookable offence - and also struggling Cardiff with bottom club Fulham a point further adrift in the battle to beat the drop.

Hughton insisted City’s league win was fully merited, capped by Tettey’s thunderbolt, which sparked wild celebrations in the vicinity of the home technical area led by the Norwich manager.

“I think everybody would have enjoyed that second goal and it could not have happened to a nicer fella,” said Hughton. “He is a good individual and professional and that was probably why there was that type of response. Alex is not going to score too many like that in his career. When you are a player and you score that type of goal and you know it is going to be shown over and over it is a really nice feeling and the lads are delighted for him.

“I thought we were excellent. We wanted a reaction from last week. We didn’t shy away from the fact we knew this was a big game today because of who the opposition were.

“I thought we were excellent from start to finish. I think that was one of our best performances of the season. We have had good ones before. I remember Manchester United here for 45 minutes we were very good. How we didn’t beat Cardiff I don’t know. We have had better performances but you have to score the goals at the right time and in that first half period when we were good we got those goals.”

  • Hi Pablo, are you really happy with the current managerial set up? Good and timely win today against a very poor team does not disguise the fact that under Hughton we are going backwards both in terms of entertainment and results. We cannot risk another season under these three clowns.

  • Blaff, I don`t much like the notion of batteries of trannies. A few here and there I can cope with. My Tesco up-market DAB radio is mains only. I`m sure better versions may be found in the United Arab Emirates, The Cayman Quadrangle or The Manila Envelope. However, with a bit of research, I have discovered an after-market Happy Clapper filter in `Electric World`, Norton Subcourse. Unfortunately, it does require batteries, but well worth the 49p investment. Where`s Mattias??

  • improved performance and result, but the improvement must be carried forwards. Good idea to play with only one 'holding midfielder' and when he went forward what a strike. and jonny thats 6 wins from 16 home games with only Liverpool, Ar**nal, and West Brom to come. Suggest that a home winning record of 7 from 19 is ok and I accuse you of being complacent or am I in dreamland when I look for 12-13 home wins?

  • Tettey more than redeemed himself with that strike. Still not as good as Fash's volley but right up there. Olsson was rock solid again, one of the few players who hasn't put a foot wrong. Like the idea of using full backs as wingers and allowing Wes and Snod to roam at will. May not work against the better clubs. Poor old RVW, worked hard but he's still not man enough to boss the 6 yard box. Those 2 sitters....ouch! Several reasons to be cheerful then. But the one thing which pi**es me off are the posters who grumble about my right to grumble. Despite yesterday, I am not confident Norwich will stay up (the next 2 games will determine that) and I make no apology for wanting Hughton replaced even if we survive. Wonder what Mattias will say if and when the Tardis re-opens for business. Meanwhile, my glass is only half full, so I'm off to top it up. PS. Gek, put tranny batteries on your shopping list.

  • Wes Hoolahan does make a massive difference. I think the whole forward line looks better when he plays. Notice Mr Hughton how the ball stays up the opponents end a lot longer. Wes holds up play and brings other players in as well as frustrating defenders. Great result. why the hell hasn't Wes been more involved this season?. Well played too Elmander who at last looks like a threat himself and for setting up Snoddy today.

  • I have been lucky enough to watch every home match at CARARUD since 2009 the season we had Brian Shotgunn as manager. Obviously had many many highs under Paul Lambert, but I have to say since that man left and we had CH as manager this was the first home match I watched that I thought we actually played very well and I went home happy having been entertained !!!!

  • Thanks for that information Pierre, more illuminating than the round of insults that we are falling in to. It has been clear for a long while that there was not going to be a change manager and this explains why. The team have been unhappy this season and have put in some really poor performances along with some mystifying selections, but it came good yesterday. We are still a long way from safety, but at least we are not yet in “The dead canary sketch”. I am as frustrated as anyone with how we have failed to turn up in a number of games, especially away from home, and would like to see the team playing for each other more and not falling apart when the pressure is on. I am, however really happy with our board and owners. Though they don’t have the resources of the oligarchs, oil sheiks, Vincent Tan or Tony Fernandez, we are one of the few locally owned PL clubs that actually run as a solvent business, and that has to be the future. There is a long way to go but I think that we will make it. What happens after that is a different question.

We surely have to beat WBA and get something from Fulham. How about a bit of revenge! Swansea won`t be a pushover. Liverpool & Chelsea could be nightmarish. But you never know.

We have played more games than those around us, and should they win their games in hand then we are one point and a worse goal difference away from the third relegation spot. Enjoy yesterday, but don't take focus off the target.we need more results or one week of results against us turns it all back around.

  • I wasn't annoyed at Shearer's comments at all. He sees us for what we are, which is a premier league squad with an average player value of £2.9m per player. Against other teams in the league, that gives us an expectation of between 17th and 15th for a season . Anywhere in there is conforming to expectations. Anything above 15th is outperforming them.

  • Wow! The happy clappers are out in force again, celebrating a win against the worst team I have seen at carrow Road all season. We are expected to win these games, but it is being treated as an amazing result. We have only won games this season is which the opposition has had a mare and this was no different. Even Poyet said his team didn't turn up but added that without Ruddy's two saves they would have gone home with a point! For anyone to believe that the corner is finally turned we now have to get five points from the next three games. Anything less and we are back in the poo. What I will not be able to stomach is another season like this. Hughton must go whether we manage to stay up or not. Yesterday was the bare minimum of what was required and that is all.

  • Who cares about the why's and wherefores of the opposition. Lets just accept that three points goes a long way to help in the struggle. If City manage to end the season out of the bottom three , then it will be time for a rethink of how the club should progress. I am absolutely disgusted with the attitude of " Just keep out of the bottom three ". There is no earhly reason that the City could not grow into an established premiership side. Thinking small automatically keeps you small. Arsenal are the only club who have never left the top flight. All others have played in the lower divisions and grown into the clubs they are today. So can City. The supporters believe in the City. Why cannot the owners and the board?

Shearer does know what he is talking about and to say otherwise is slightly daft.

  • DoubleD, I said just what you said about `width`, Wes, Snods, Olsson, etc on another board. Great minds ;-) No Redmond, and Snods was a quasi-winger, so we were `wingless wonders` with full-backs providing some width. Wes & Snods seemed to have quite free-roaming roles. That was a real change in formation and tactics - but it was the players that did the business. They all upped their game. Wes was excellent (Hi, Stew!). Poor Winkel was provided with a tap-in and a free header by Wes. Fluffed them both. Shame. Unlike the Happy Clappers, Pablo, I do not go away when my views appear to be proven wrong by a good performance (which it was). I just need time to recover from a celebratory hangover. Spot on assessment of Hoolahan`s influence, Bally High. I dare Chrissy to drop him after that.... Stew and Pa Snipps are the formation specialists on these boards - was that an Alf Ramsey style 4-4-2? Martin, Yobo, Bassong, Olsson - Snods, Howson, Tettey, Wes - Elmander, Winkel. It worked. Against Sunderland anyway. May we have more please, Sir? It was SO much better.

  • Shearer on MOTD was scathing regarding our supporters - "what do they expect" and that it would have been ridiculous to sack Hughton and that "he is doing a great job". If he can work that out from the 30 seconds they show every week then he is impressive. MOTD becoming more and more irrelevant versus Sky Sports and the inclusion of the repulsive Russel Brand topped it off. Shearer - what do we expect? Certainly more consistency , tactical nouse, fight, passion. With a decent manager we would be home and dry by now. Great result yesterday but needs to be followed up by a good performance next week. As others have mentioned, playing without a left winger worked particularly as Olsen is increasingly effective coming forward. CH still needs to be replaced but getting the right man is far from guaranteed. OTBC

We have not, however, made ourselves safe yet so all you folks thinking that it's job done settle down and place that game in the context of the season so far. .......Doesn't look so good does it?? This result was the product of what has been one of our problems all season....Inconsistency which by definition means you will have a mix of good and bad performances with no tendency to any form of norm. Whilst fans get understandably joyful or glum about any individual performance this does nothing to address the overall problem and we are all then inclined to make the most of any crumbs from the table. The next two games offer the possibility of shaking off the inconsistent aspects of our game whilst making us virtually safe. Will we do it......well that's the thing with inconsistency.....you never know!!

We also need to praise Ruddy for bringing off two excellent saves in the game or this could have ended up as a draw. This has nothing to do with being downbeat as I really enjoyed yesterdays game because we actually gave it a go and players put 100% effort in. I still think Hooper should start ahead of RVW as he seems to form a better partnership with Hoolahan other than that I would keep the same team for next week.

  • The statistics regarding changing managers is interesting but only part of the story. If you change, it needs to be the right change and ideally the successor lined up in advance. Best example of this was Soton and this was widely villified at the time as being unjust on the Adkins. They have been more than vindicated. Fulham's first change looked doomed from the start. The second a good move but too late. WBA sacking of Clarke seemed harsh at the time - they were paying for failure to replace Lukaka. Swansea interesting as some parallels re. our calling for Adams as caretaker. A new manager does need time and coming in mid-season must be very tough. CH has had time but doesn't seem to be improving results performances and his team selection erratic at best. Appointing a new man is always a gamble but I pray the board will get it right this time. And Johny, EVERYBODY enjoyed the win - we just don't believe we will follow it up with another one. OTBC

Left the flanks a bit 'gappy' but Olsen in particular did well to fill in. Second half I thought we reverted to type a bit but a good performance. Tettey was my MOTM even without the goal. Looks like a future captain to me, he was really rallying the troops from the first whistle.

  • If we're talking trannies, Gek, I bought one 2 weeks ago. Can't tell you the make (Archie doesn't care for that sort of cras commercialism), but it was described as "portable". This suggests 2 things: (1) it has a handle, and (2) it does not require an electricity source. This one has no handle and doesn't take conventional batteries. So, if you want to roam free in the middle of the field (like Wes did yesterday), you have to spend an extra £14 on a "charge pack". Such a travesty of mis- description that I fired off a letter straight away. I'm not complaining mind you. That has been banned by the happy cr*ppers who share this cubicle with you and me? PS.

Teams who are at 32pts from 31 games tend to survive, except West Ham in10\11 when the strugglers were exceptionally close. Teams with most to worry about are those not yet at 30 pts. 2pts from next 6 games and a final day win against Aresenal should do it. Apols if my previous posts suddenly appear

  • McNally and the board have showed commendable wisdom. Six teams bottled it and changed managers part way through the season. All six of those teams are below us in the table. No coincidence.

  • That is fine Brew. I just think it would be a good way of making our feelings known, and would also show great appreciation for a player who has done a lot for us.

  • MB re 5pts enough? I posted some stats on the "2 - 0" board but the submit failed. Briefly the average needed in past 10 years is 36pts. During that period only West Ham went down after having 32pts from 31 games and there was almost nothing separating the bottom seven that season when run in began. Teams with less than 30pts at this stgae generally struggle to make the average. So the stats look good. We are of course all wary of our run in plus what Hoots might do. I reckon 2pts from next 6 games and a win against Arsenal will see us over the line.

  • Breathtaking goal from Tettey though I think the Bury lad's was pretty special in the LC..Much better but please take the improvement on into the next crucial game.Hooper looks a better option for a goal than the hapless RvW.

  • On the subject of changing managers, Wales Online did an analysis of points per game after the change. Updated to this weekend gives one of six lower half clubs outperforming CH's season's total of 32 from 31; another is level pegging with us and four are doing worse. Aggregating the 94 games the six clubs have played since changing manager, they have registered 88 points. Watching MOTD yesterday I was struck by how hangdog some of the new blood managers were looking, hardly inspiring new leadership. And there was CH getting up and punching the air, at long last...

  • Cecil: "lyb, youve made the same comment before. Saying it once showed that you are not very clever. Twice that you are truly dumb." No, I just repeat it so special people like you might finally take it in. Where there's life there's always hope.

  • A comfortable win delivered the good day this weekends fixtures promised. It now looks bleak for Cardiff and Fulham although their concluding fixtures offer easier points than ours. We are also too dependent on home results and need to snatch something on our travels. Firmly believe CH will remain in his job if we stay up. Ditto if we go down.

  • Makes a change they normally go over the roof. Well done to Alex who is turning out to be one of candidates for POTS alongside Snoddy of course.
