Ryan Bennett headed Norwich's opener against Reading

The 23-year-old centre-back, signed by former boss Paul Lambert in January 2012, has been used sparingly by current chief Chris Hughton.

But he took his chance in Saturday's 2-1 win over Reading after replacing an injured Michael Turner, opening the scoring and being named man of the match.

"I came here and the manager has changed and the two lads that have played have done unbelievably well," Bennett told the Pink 'Un.

"I think Turns (Turner) has been one of the best players of the season since he came back in.

"He's scored a few goals too and unfortunately he had to come off against Reading, so I hope he's all right.

"For me to sit and watch things, it's hard. At times we have not got the results and sometimes it's hard not to be playing.

"But for me I just had to stay positive. There are plenty worse things I could be doing as a job right now and I'm just happy to be here every day and working hard every day."

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.
