Video Evidence: Norwich Did Abuse Newcastle United Through Crosses And Headers


It's funny what you can turn up when you finally go looking. I had seen these footytube videos on The Busby Babe and Lion of Vienna Suite, but had not gone trying to find the footytube... oddly enough, if you go to footytube.com, it's reasonably simple to find the videos you might want to find. Here are the highlights of the Norwich match:




Interestingly, it looks like Demba Ba was the player who got beat for the header that led to the fluke bounce-back goal that opened the scoring... and was again defeated in the air by Zak Whitbread for the initial header that Krul saved back to Holt for his first of the match. Danny Simpson was most likely responsible for the third, during which the entire Newcastle back line exhibited their disapproval of Dan Gosling's beautiful through ball by refusing to cover either the crosser or the crossee or anyone at all for that matter. What would a four goal embarrassment be without some blame to poke at James Perch, who was beaten flat-footed for the fourth off of the free kick that his foul gave up in the first place. But hey- even if you don't want to relive the Norwich Header Show, you can relive Yohan Cabaye's absolutely exquisite ball to Ba for the first goal and Ba's clinical finish for his 11th goal of the season.
