Norwich’s Chris Hughton feels pressure as slick Swansea turn on style
It is not unknown for one team to go into a late slide and not recover in time to avoid relegation, and this season it could well be Norwich City. Chris Hughton’s position as manager has been tenuous best canada goose coat for skiing ever since a 7-0 drubbing by Manchester City in November, and after Saturday’s comprehensive defeat he sounded like a man at a loss over how to correct the travel sickness that has seen his team lose their last six away games.
Carrow Road has hardly been a fortress either, and with three wins in their last 19 games Norwich know they must capitalise on their next two fixtures, at home to West Bromwich Albion and away to Fulham. After that their run-in borders on the horrific, the last four matches pitting them against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal. By Hughton’s own downcast admission Norwich were a poor second-best throughout against a slick Swansea team whose admirable passing game would be a loss to the Premier League.
Fortunately for the authentic canada goose jacket sale casual observer, as well as the partisan, Swansea are authentic canada goose outlet online all but safe for another year after their first win in 10. They were clearly superior from the outset on Saturday and had the points secured by half-time, at which stage they led 2-0 through Jonathan de Guzman who, playing further forward than usual, doubled his tally for the season to four goals in 31 Premier League appearances. Both finishes were of a standard that made nonsense of that modest record, the first deadly accurate from 18 yards and the second from much closer in after a delightful one-two with Wilfried Bony, his closest rival for man of the match honours.
Bony, who are there any canada goose outlet stores has scored 20 in all buying a canada goose jacket online competitions, led the line with a muscular expertise conspicuously lacking in the Norwich front best canada goose jacket womens men. Ricky van Wolfswinkel, the record signing from Sporting Lisbon, scored on his debut but has since been more Rip van Winkel. That one goal remains his only success in 22 league appearances. Johan Elmander, his partner here, has fared even worse with one in 25 games and with such a puny strikeforce there was no way back from a 2-0 deficit. Swansea could easily have doubled the margin in the second half but settled for an outstanding third goal, finished coolly by Wayne Routledge after incisive passing from Bony and Jonjo Shelvey.
Garry Monk, Swansea’s caretaker manager, would not accept that they are safe yet, preferring to dwell on the all-round excellence of De Guzman and saying his first move on being confirmed in the job would be to make the Dutchman’s loan transfer from Villarreal a permanent one. Hughton, who spent in excess of £20m last summer, may not get the chance to buy again, with Malky Mackay in line to replace him.
Hughton said: “We’re not good enough on buy canada goose parka uk the ball. At home we’ve been solid lately but away from home we’re not. It’s something we’re continually trying to address. We’ve tried different formations related website, looking can you pick canada goose coat 1000 bulbs garland the most expensive canada goose parka for the solution in different ways, but we’ve found it very difficult.
“There’s absolutely buy canada goose jacket winnipeg no excuses for that performance. We were so far short of what’s required at this level, we never really gave ourselves a chance. The points we need is not something I want to think about.”
