Express: “Norwich shot themselves in the foot to hand newly-promoted Wolves a flying start to their Championship campaign. The Canaries had Swedish international defender Marin Olsson sent-off just four minutes in before Dave Edwards headed the home side’s winner.”

Daily Mail: “Martin Olsson lost his head, while Dave Edwards used his as Wolves suggested this season in the Championship will be happier than their last. Sweden defender Olsson was sent off for a second bookable offence after pulling down Rajiv van La Parra and then pushed referee Simon Hooper in the chest as he raised the red card. It could mean an extended ban for the left back, who kicked a water bottle as he stormed down the tunnel to complete a hat-trick of stupid moves.”

The Guardian: “Norwich’s defeat means they have not won a league game since beating Sunderland on 22 March, after which they lost six of their final seven Premier League matches. Yet Adams is hopeful that this latest setback will act as a wake-up call.”

The Telegraph: “Wolves, the League One champions, returned to Championship action with a win after a demanding test against relegated Norwich City swung their way following a 60th-minute red card for the visitors’ Swedish defender Martin Olsson.”

The Independent: “The Swedish left back was dismissed when his foul on Wolves man of the match Rajiv van La Parra brought him a second booking. His reaction was hardly comparable with Paolo di Canio’s infamous shove on Paul Alcock but Olsson clearly put his hand forcibly on Hooper’s chest, seemingly in an attempt to stop him pulling out his cards.”

  • I'm still depressed by Sunday's shambles -- almost relieved that I can't see any games this season since relegation. I still have faith in NA -- you don't win an FA Youth Cup over two legs luck alone -- but we need two good results at home before we descend into darkest Suffolk.

  • Mr Brewer, can't really say "do another line of ......." to pep them up can I ? Seems to be the legit natural high to use as an obvious metaphor .......... or are we to accept the players abandon a naive or foolish notion per se ?

  • I wish I understood this "smell the coffee" thing. It seems de rigeuer. Is it akin to "at the end of the day", "draw a line under it", "moving forward", "hit the ground running" and all the other clichéd bollox served up these days?

  • Express: "four minutes in". Inaccurate. - Daily Mail... just same old Daily Mail, aka Bollox. - Other three: Fair comment. Where are those quality papers; The Sun and The Mirror? You`d think they`d at least be ahead of the dreadful Mail. Nigella Forage`s Official Newsletter.

  • Probably embarrassed to have been caught the wrong side, been too slow and thoroughly caught out by a more determined (and less of a high profile) Champ player .......... we need to wise up and smell the coffee and get with the Champ pace .......... forget about being Internationals and ex-Prem ............ you're only as good as your last game OTBC

  • I agree with the press for a change. What a stupid thing to do,getting sent off in the first match of the season just because he is not fit and up to speed yet. Poor professionalism.
