How much pressure was Norwood under
« on: January 13, 2018, 05:14:25 PM »
To take a penalty anytime in a game but in the 95th minute knowing if you score your team wins three points he must have been under a lot of pressure.
Well done Oliver Norwood. great result for the boys.

He's a brilliant penalty taker that's for sure. As you say given the added pressure of the timing even more so! I don't think I was as calmly as him and I was only watching Sky Sports!

Fully marks to Olly, that was squeaky bum time. But It shows his mental strength. We are going to need that in the coming weeks from all players.

He would be the first to admit that he didn't play well overall, but to come in so clutch at the end like that was brilliant. Very happy that we have a consistent dead ball specialist like Norwood. Wish he had taken the free kick as well considering it was on the left side of the field.

Frightening to think who would have taken the pen if Cairney had been playing & Norwood stayed on the bench.

He looked nervous and the keeper was flapping around like a jack-in-the-box throughout his run-up.  But his execution was excellent.

Excellent!

Well done Ollie!

Loads of bottle, unflappable during the wait to take it, head down, knew exactly where he was going to strike it, not distracted by the Boro keepers shenanigans & nonsense

Of Mullery / esq proportions in his strike, placement & delivery

Well done fella!!   

Congrats on a very professional job
