Norwich City away. What was the score? Drew 1-1
We've only got 10 men! Well 9 if you don't include supersub Izale McLeod. Our discliplinary woes continued this afternoon at Carrow Road. After taking the lead against the run of play, Sodje then gets himself sent off for an apparent two-footed tackle. No more First Great Western train journeys for Sam then, my his family will be pleased.
In the scheme of things it's a point gained. Norwich one defeat in six, 10 men for an hour and a battling performance, so I'll take a point. And for once according to eye-witnesses we had a couple of nominations for man of the match, Jerome Thomas particularly impressing and also doing well in his protection of Chris Powell.
There was sometimes talk of disciplinary issues during the 'baby Bentley' Pards era at Upton Park and certainly many of our cautions have been for dissent or retaliation, Pards certainly needs to sort it out but I'd like to put it down to inexperience or just over-exuberance, however disturbingly it is another weakness that lesser teams than us can exploit.
Nonetheless a point gained and the Baggies aside, this league is wide open and we have more than enough tools to exploit every other side in the division.Who was at Carrow Road: All Quiet

.What Pards' said: "I was happy with the point. We really had to work very hard today and the guys gave their all for Charlton."A bottle of fizzy pop for:
Jerome Thomas. A better performance from him, I would love to see Thomas take games by the scruff of the neck and show this division how good he really is.
