Gary Hooper: Summer signing is finding his form with Norwich

The 25-year-old joined in the summer from Celtic but, after suffering an injury in pre-season, he is only now enjoying a regular run in the side.

Hooper has hit five goals in his last eight starts and now admits he is feeling more than happy with life in the Premier League.

"It takes time but we've played together a few times now and I think it's starting to show," he told The Sun.

"The team has to create the chances for me and I have then got to take them but we've shown we can play together and win.

"Swansea are a good team and can pass from back to front all day. But we are at home, it's our ground and we have got to go for it."

His manager Chris Hughton is happy with how things are progressing and added: "He has always been a goalscorer.

"But there's more to him than that. He gets into all the right areas and he makes good runs.

"So we know that if we provide him with the right service then he will score goals."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
