The national newspapers' views on Norwich City's defeat at Stoke.
Sunday Mirror: “Etherington is a rare shimmering jewel . . . the beauty within the beast of the football monster Tony Pulis has been accused of building in the Potteries.”
The Mail on Sunday: “Matthew Etherington settled this ‘comfort zone’ shocker to ensure Norwich equalled the unwanted Premier League record of 28 away games without keeping a clean sheet.”
The Observer: “Replays suggested the throw-in from which Cameron Jerome flicked the ball on for Etherington to fire in his decisive shot should have been given to the visitors.”
The People: “The class of ‘72 said hello to the Britannia Stadium while Etherington kissed goodbye to Norwich’s hopes of heading home with a point.”
The Sunday Times: “There was real quality on the pitch. Unfortunately, George Eastham – back for a reunion of Stoke City’s 1972 League Cup-winning side – walked off before kick-off.”
