Norwich City boss Neil Adams admitted it felt like the good old days were back at Carrow Road after a stunning late salvo to sink Blackburn in Tuesday’s Championship epic.

Tom Cairney’s early opener rocked the hosts but Lewis Grabban’s finish after Paul Robinson saved his initial penalty was the bare minimum City deserved prior to the interval. Bradley Johnson’s 87th minute curling lob sparked a frenetic finale before Grabban secured the points to seal a pulsating encounter.

“I thought it was one of those games under the lights when special things happen at Carrow Road. The crowd were absolutely brilliant how they got behind us. Players can’t help but be inspired and we needed them,” said Adams. “Bradley was a bit miffed. He wanted to show people Saturday’s goal was not a fluke and he has the quality to do that. The energy he has is incredible.

“Him and Alex (Tettey) dominated in that midfield and they were fantastic. Technically it is as good a goal as you will see. I was also pleased with Josh Murphy and the composure he showed on the final goal when he squared it for Lewis (Grabban). Lewis is a goalscorer. He is more than that. You don’t just buy a player because he can do just one thing. You see his work-rate.”

Grabban’s match-winner triggered a minor melee between both benches before calm was restored.

“I don’t know. I stayed out of it,” said Adams. “I said to Wes Hoolahan, ‘Me and you will stay out of it and let them get on with it.’ It was something and nothing. I don’t think they were too happy with the celebrations. I just stayed away to thank the fans and by the time I got down the tunnel everyone had gone. They are bound to be disappointed. If they had equalised I would have been the same. I know their bench really well and there is no animosity. There was nothing unsavoury.”

Rovers’ chief Gary Bowyer confirmed it was City’s decision to play on, despite an injury to Corry Evans during the build-up to Grabban’s second goal following a collison with Murphy, which angered his coaching staff. Bowyer was also upset at the decision to award Norwich a first-half penalty when Hoolahan’s cross struck the arm of Jason Lowe after an earlier claim against Steven Whittaker was turned down.

“We feel we’ve been on the wrong side of two major decisions in the game,” said Bowyer. “It is as simple as that. We come out, we score an outstanding goal and we were very dominant for the first 15 minutes. We should have had a penalty, the lad’s hand is in an un-natural position and yet it doesn’t get given.

“Norwich come into the game, which they are going to do at home, they are a strong outfit, one of the favourites for promotion. But then to let them back in the game with the penalty that he gives, Lowey’s hand is down by his side, I can’t put it in words to explain it. Kyle Naughton gets sent off for Tottenham at the weekend and it is no different to the one we don’t get given. It is a massive disappointment. You saw at the end their emotion from beating us, they knew that it was a very very tough game for them.”

  • So, Sky this morning are suggesting that Hull are having another crack at Rhodes (anything to do with the Snodgrass situation one wonders) and that Stoke are reviving their interest in Redmond. As we enter the home straight in the transfer saga let's hope that Adams does not fall foul of the old Chinese curse of "may you live in interesting times" and that the Board live up to the "we do not need to sell" mantra. Faint hope I fear, however, wouldn't that just be the icing on last week's cake?

  • Bit of each, Bogaz. These days, a lot less Carra Rud than there used to be. Was much easier for less than equal people to get tickets than it is now. Also, don`t much like all the jostling crowds etc these days. Thanks for clarification of `PU`. Silly me. My best Carra days were the 60`s. After that, I worked around the UK and went to as many away games as possible, nearish to where I was located. London, Coventry, Manchester. Edinburgh was barren territory except for a game I saw vs one of the Dundee clubs. I think it was the Anglo-Scottish Cup or something. Or perhaps just a friendly. On the way back, we got involved in a "lock-in" at a hostelry near Auchtermuchty. Luckily, we`d paid one of our gang to drive the hired minibus - and not drink!! Fun times.

  • Double D in Turkey ( just north of me). I wrote on PU web page ( That is PINK UN Mad B) last night that Malky had signed for Palace. Turns out he hadn't for the same reason he didn't sign for us. He didn't want the board giving him back up staff HE didn't want. So we stayed with NA. If last 2 games are anything to go by we will do OK this season. On the programme sellers how sad was that I read just now. All the money we have swirling around and we implement a " cost cutting programme" to ditch 4 loyal programme sellers. Shame on you Mr Mc Nally!

  • Jim re. the programme sellers. The story was in last Saturday's Eve News but I don't think it was online. The club has sacked four programme sellers in an effort to cut costs. All of them were invited to reapply for their jobs (that old tactic) and four were got rid off. The report made mention of a lady who has been doing the job for over 30 years. She said that she does not get out much and the job was the highlight for her. Not any longer as she has been sacked. As I quipped at the time the money saved can go into Bassong's loyalty bonus pot.

  • I think we're going to hang onto Bassong. He's on the naughty step for the moment while he has a good think about his attitude, but a Bassong who's putting the effort in is a Bassong worth having. That said, I didn't think Snodgrass would go and I didn't think Fer would, so my track record here is not great.

  • Brew ,Bluster's father is apparently a member of the 59'ers club at CR. He might also be a member of your favourite club as well. The next gathering has been at the back of my mind for a while. Hoping to get a few others as well. Ingo (who has now disappeared) showed an interest as did someone called Nelson. Stew (who has also disappeared) would be a useful addition. Perhaps will also invite CanaryWest and Steady On. Will draw the line at Mellow_Yellow otherwise our mate Dingo may not show. I'm off on holiday at the end of next week for a week to Holland (visiting RVW'S birth place and other places in his life) so will fix a date for when I get back.

He had just passed his medical and would be signing today. May be useful or it might be that, to use an old Cloughie quote, he has shot it. Where does that leave our old pal Bassong ?

  • I, like all true supporters, have been absolutely delighted by the last 2 results and performances. This doesn't disguise the fact that our squad is starting to look thread bare..and if quality reinforcements replacements aren't brought in we're going to struggle. The situation we had with our back line last night makes that obvious - and that's only game 3. No one is expecting the board to sanction reinvesting all the money that has been banked..but, as loyal supporters I believe we deserve some sign of ambition from them, My hope now is that we bolster the squad in the next fortnight, continue this vein of form through to Xmas, and then the Board may believe we can bounce str8 back into the Prem...and loosen the purse strings for NA in January so we can really push on

  • I'm really pleased by the last two games, but I think i'll reserve full judgement until we see some more away performances. We need to go in with the same attacking mentality that we've shown at home, and not the old "don't loose" approach that we saw the first game, and most of the last 2 years. Don't want to put a downer on things, but remember how many times Hughton "shut the doubters up". It's not about the last result, it's about trends. Things are looking up which is great, but let's not allow complacency to get them back down again.

Nobody wants to hear sour grapes from managers. I'm glad to see that we are starting to get into the habit of winning as that is the most important habit to have and one that is just back from a 2-year vacation.

  • Thanks Neil Adams and the players for bringing the smiles back to Carrow Road! The football in the first two homes games has been a breath of fresh air after the stagnant stuff dished up by Hughton last season. Win or lose, it is good to watch and the reaction from the fans last night showed just how much good attacking flowing football will stir and lift the whole stadium. One feeds off the other so now the fans are in full voice again, the players will also no doubt feed off that.

Herring Gulls in bell-tent sized plumage. I even saw a milliwheel trolley being guided along by its `owner`, who was waddling alongside. Actually seated on the trolley was an equally ovate dog. Inside the Troll Skip was a scene of Hogarthian horror. I ventured in and had a pint of Nelson`s Revenge. The charming young bar-lady brought me two. I said, `there`s only me, I only ordered one`. "I thought you said something else". I did say `may I have` and `please`, said I. "Oh, no-one talk like that in here" she said, with a sweet, wistful smile. At least the Puppet Man was on good form, accompanied by a Robotic Charlie Chaplin `statue`. Shades of Barry Island. Such fun.

We have everything now, goals, passion from crowd and players with exciting fast moving football on the pitch. Pleased for NA as he has had some criticism from some when the reality is that most of what the board is doing is the fall out from CH tenure, following which, the board resolved not to let another manager damage the club. All we need to do now is bottle the feel good factors, top it up with a win at Ips..ch, so that it can be opened when required during the season.

  • The 4 most important things Neil has done so far. 1) Got Hoolahan Playing his football (he has been superb last two games) 2) Solid central midfield partnership, with a good understanding (one stays back, one goes forward) 3) Physical dimension added with Lafferty (extremely high workrate as well, we definitely need cover here) 4) Finishing added with Grabban who certainly isn't shy in front of goal. Defensive cover is required but I seem to remember the cry of "I don't care if we concede as long as we play good football and score more than the opposition" Sexy football is back! OTBC!

  • Yes indeed, lankboy, a lot of fans are concerned about the lack of defensive depth - and pace. With Garrido being withdrawn at half time (hopefully nothing serious), and Olsson suspended for a further 2 games, we had our entire Senior defensive squad on duty in the 2nd half (Assuming Bassong`s a song of twilight). No news there. Will Neil bring him back into the limelight? Hopefully, there will be a defensive recruitment or two ere long. The most encouraging thing is the spirit that has been shown. The fans love that and the whole positivity thing snowballs. I am so pleased to see a bit of swagger in Bradley Johnson. `Swallows & Summers` etc, but he seems to relish the responsibility, and also his pairing with Tettey - as he did when Alex first joined. It`s the old `Greater than the sum of the parts` business. Lambo did - it looks like Neil may be capable of doing it too. He`ll probably have to, as some of our `quality` parts have departed, and maybe more yet to do so. I hope Tettey stays and builds on that partnership with Bradders. Poor ol` much-maligned Bradders... ;-)

  • Looking at other posts there is still some concern from fans regarding conceding early goals and defensive frailty. I don't deny that these are concerns but we are a team in transition and are not yet the finished article. Let's see what our squad is like when the transfer window closes, then make a clearer judgement. I prefer to focus on the results at this point in time, it's been a long time since we scored 3 goals at all, let alone in two consecutive league games, so I for one am really happy, and really hopeful for a successful season. I'm also pleased for Neil Adams who has done well to keep the core of the squad together, and sign classy hungry players. I for one, would love to see him as a long-term City manager. BUT, as we all know, it's a results business! So far, so good though.

  • It did, it really did. The atmosphere was awesome and you can now feel the connection between the players and the crowd building.
