The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 1-1 draw at Everton.

Sunday Mirror: “Norwich have become the tormentors of the elite and extended their unbeaten run to seven matches with a stirring second-half display.”

The Mail on Sunday: “For the second successive week, Everton were forced to endure the anger of manager David Moyes after wayward finishing cost them points.”

The Observer: “Thoughts of Champions League are fading at Everton and, as the howls that greeted Norwich’s late equaliser testified, the loss of momentum is self-inflicted.”

The Independent: “Norwich had come to Merseyside buoyed by their victory over Manchester United, while Everton were digesting the bitter taste of being the first club to lose to Reading.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “Norwich merited a draw, finally secured when Javier Garrido swept in a set piece that Tim Howard should have dealt with, and Bassong headed in.”


  • More Pedants` Corner. Mirror has it right. It was a `stirring second half display` rather than a `last minute comeback` as described elsewhere.

  • Telegraph Sam is taking to Naarfolk now, it seems. If teams like Everton fail to take their chances against teams like Norwich, they run the risk of being punished by that bit of extra quality we have (to paraphrase\reverse the usual press tosh). Now seems Moyes feels he needs a decent `keeper to compete with Tim Howard. You`re not having JR back, David!
