Gary Hooper: Off the mark for Norwich and looking to kick on

The 25-year-old frontman finally arrived in the Premier League over the summer following many windows of intense transfer speculation.

Norwich were the ones to lure Hooper away from Celtic, with big money paid for a proven marksman.

Injuries have prevented him from making the early impact he had been hoping for at Carrow Road, but a brace in a Capital One Cup tie at Watford on Tuesday has him up and running.

Hooper is now determined to kick on with new employers and earn the international recognition which has been mooted for some time.

He said: "It's early days but everyone wants to play for their country.

"I just have to get on the pitch in the Premier League and start scoring. That's the next step.

"It has been frustrating with the injury at Norwich. But I had a calf problem when I first signed for Celtic and that worked out all right in the end.

"I need to keep scoring because that's my job. If I can keep scoring like I did at Celtic, then it will be a good few years."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
