    I thought they would get that penalty call in the 93rd minute.

    Great clearance at the end by Sorensen!

    Trust me I thought kick off was 7:30pm. Missed the first half, but managed to get a link to see the Buendia goal. Again, some missed chances but we kept Toney quiet and the covering back was superb. Jeremy Goss on BBC Radio Norfolk was a bonus. Sounds like a younger Paul McCartney?

    Norwich seem to have gone against all of the rules. The rule when you take over a football club is a) sort out the defence, then b) start to think about the creative stuff. Farke seems to have done it the opposite way around.

    Next up Luton at home. Hoping for a comprehensive victory to make up for earlier defeats.

    Just caught up on this: I have to say I thought that was close to our most complete performance. Ok, it was a tiny bit hairy right at the very end, but to be honest we held the top scorers in the league at arm’s length for the whole match. No post-half time wobble. Loads of chances created - dare I say it, our finishing wasn’t clinical enough...

    Comments on players - McClean finally got the recognition he deserves with a motm, he was brilliant. Skipp as solid as ever too. Hanley was also superb - I lost count of the number of well-timed interceptions.

    Also Giannoulis - I know I keep praising him since that early blip in his second(?) match, but I do think he’s excellent. He started slowly but defensively he’s pretty good at the moment but, especially in the second half as the game stretches, going forward he’s brilliant.

    I know it can feel a bit frustrating to have Farke’s refusal to substitute until late, but today I thought he got it tactically bang on. Aarons not being so aggressive improved us at the back, without costing too much going forward. And Pukki really does defend from the front, which was perfect against a team like Brentford, keeping them mostly in their half.

    buzzing!

    The beeb says 15 games unbeaten at home, which is our best run since 1987!

    Interesting you didn't even mention Emi, Rob, despite him scoring and setting up two assists for Teemu which he didn't take. Not a criticism of you - just underlines how we all assume Emi is going to be brilliant so we don't even comment on it.

    Real achievement was to make them look ordinary. What will we do without Emi should b joined with a chorus of what will we do without Skipp!!

    This - it might not have been pretty, but we made them look worse than us - toothless in fact!
