Norwich Fan Outlines Why They Are Quickly Losing Patience With Wes Hoolahan

Norwich Fan Outlines Why They Are Quickly Losing Patience With Wes Hoolahan

Norwich are sliding down the Premier League faster than you can drunkenly slur 'Where are ya', let's be havin' ya''. The Canaries have lost five of their last six games, and are now engaged in a three-way fight for 17th place and safety along with Sunderland and Newcastle.

As Norwich are increasingly pedestrianised by their more robust Premier League opponents, their supporters appear to be quickly losing with Wes Hoolahan. Norwich City blogger Louise Taylor has written about her increased exasperation with Norwich's descent down the table in the Eastern Daily Press, and has admitted that she has lost patience with the Irish midfielder.


Taylor labours the sheer, numbing inevitability of Norwich's recent miserable defeats and performances, and Hoolahan is a constituent part of her ire:

At the risk of annoying any fellow fans, I have finally lost patience with Wes Hoolahan. I will preface this by saying he has been one of my favourite players over recent seasons. However, this season he often has been lacking that killer ball into the box.

I have lost count of the number of times he has got the ball and then either taken one touch too many before passing, or running around in circles until he loses the ball.

How many times this season has someone been open and Wes has not seen them or has kept onto the ball for a little too long, giving the defence time to close in?

While this is very much a personal opinion but we have seen earlier this year how that has been a growing sentiment among the Carrow Road faithful. We'll always back him to the hilt of course but there is very reasonable possibility that we could be seeing the decline of Weso ahead of Euro 2016, although Eamon Dunphy may disagree.

We can only hope that Wes is holding his best performances back for Sweden, Belguim and Italy, and for whoever we inevitably draw in the last 16.

Taylor appears to be much more satisfied with the performances of Robbie Brady, saying that his loss through injury against Swansea was a massive blow for Norwich.


And speaking of Euro 2016 - Anyone who brings their rejection letter/proof of failed ticket application and buys the new Ireland football jersey in Life Style Sports on Grafton Street between 8am and 9am on Thursday, 10th March, will be in with a chance to win a trip to France for two to cheer on the boys in green. Plus Damien Duff will be there signing jerseys so it's a no lose situation.
