Russell Martin: Norwich captain believes the players have to show mettle

The Canaries are away to Manchester City on Saturday on the back of a 3-0 drubbing by Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Capital One Cup.

It was a third defeat in the last four for Chris Hughton's side, who could only draw 0-0 at home to Cardiff last weekend which saw them stay in the bottom three.

"We have set high standards in the past four years. The team spirit is still very much there and it is a humble group," Martin said.

"At present the results are not quite going for us, but within that group the senior players need to make their voices heard.

"We have to make sure we have that strong identity that, in my opinion, has meant no team has worked harder than us in the past when we go out on the pitch.

"That is what we need to get back to and if we do, we have more than enough quality to improve on last year.

"We have played well in the last three league games and not got what we deserved, but by the same token there is also a time when you need to say if you are not going to get anything then be difficult to beat, like we were last year and not conceding goals.

"We have conceded too many late on and that needs to stop. We know that. You have to be physically and mentally switched on."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
