The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 0-0 draw at home to West Ham.

The Sunday Mirror: “Goals are proving hard to come by . . . on the plus side for Chris Hughton, his side are proving a tough nut to crack since leaking five goals on the opening day at Fulham.”

The Mail on Sunday: “West Ham bid £6million for striker Grant Holt in the summer. On this evidence, they should be grateful Norwich refused to do business . . . he will go into a fifth league game still searching for a goal.”

The Independent on Sunday: “Holt, the battering ram captain, seems to have lost most of his fire since he won his three-year contract from the club . . . the ferocity, the power and willingness to risk himself were missing.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “Chris Hughton will be a worried man this morning, and rightly so after his side completed a fourth league game without a victory.”

The Observer: “Chris Hughton could not fault the efforts of his Norwich players despite the frustration of a goalless draw against West Ham that left the home side without a Premier League win this season.”
