Ruddy: We're Scrapping For Our Lives

Ruddy: We're Scrapping For Our Lives


Norwich City goal keeper, John Ruddy has been talking ahead of this Sunday's crunch match with Liverpool at Carrow Road.

Just like the rest of us, Ruddy has seen Steven Gerrard's post match hurrah where he mentioned going to Norwich and doing exactly the same as they'd just done to Manchester City.

It's not something that phases JR though, he told Norwich City TV: 'What it says to me is not just how driven and how focused, not just how much Steven Gerrard is, but how he wants the rest of his team to be that same way.

'And when you are fighting for a Premier League title it is evident that confidence and focus is there.

'But we have got as much to lose, if not more, than they have.

'We are scrapping for our lives and we all want to be Premier League footballers and at the end of the day, that is what it boils down to, how much do you want to be a Premier League footballer?

'How much do you want to play next year in games against Liverpool, Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal?

'Because if you don't put in the performances in these last four games, it is not going to happen.'

Sunday will mark the team's first appearance at Carrow Road since the damaging defeat to West Brom that ultimately cost Chris Hughton his job. Despite the fact that we lost that game, City's home form is just about the only good thing about this campaign, something that JR is only too aware of.

'In 2014 we have only conceded two goals at home and one of those was a penalty, so if you can't be buoyed by the performances that we have had recently at home, then you won't get up for any,' he said.

'Certainly the crowd play a massive part and they have been with us all season through the thick and thin.

'They turned out in their droves on Saturday at Fulham and to replicate that on Sunday will see us through I hope.'

Don't worry about the crowd, John. We'll be there and up for it as usual, the lads in front of you just need to make sure they are feeling the same.
