The West Brom manager says that his side will have to dust themselves down and try to focus on the visit of Manchester United next Sunday.

Clarke said: "It is the poorest we have played all season. We were looking to break the 50-point mark but today Norwich were hungrier and sharper than us, it was their day.

"It's been a more difficult second half of the season but today certainly wasn't our day."

The game changed on Norwich's second goal gifted to the home side by a rare mistake from Ben Foster, but Clarke refused to blame his keeper.

Clarke added: "Ben's mistake was decisive but he's been great all season.

"We want to finish in the top eight if we can and we'll try and focus on Manchester United next week which will be another tough game."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
