Martin Sounds Rallying Cry

Martin Sounds Rallying Cry


Norwich City Captain, Russell Martin spoke at the club' s end of season dinner on Tuesday evening and addressed the audience directly. Martin is always seen as a 'safe pair of hands' when it comes to saying and doing the right thing. That's no bad thing and exactly what the Captain of our great football club should be able to do.

Martin said: "Come 1st July when pre-season starts - whoever`s in charge, whatever players are here - we`ll make sure we`re ready and geared to put this club back where it belongs," he said.

"We`ll go away now, into our summers with our families and have time to reflect. We`ve got the core of a fantastic squad - we`re better than what we`ve shown a lot of the time this season.

"Around the place we`ve got some real characters, real good pros and that`s why this time next year I fully believe we`ll be here and it will be a bit more of a party than it is now."

Martin added that he thinks what is needed is a return to the togetherness that the squad showed under the leadership of Paul Lambert. Togetherness that saw the club through two successive promotions.

"The camaraderie is key to what we`ve achieved as a football club. It`s a fantastic football club, with fantastic owners and fantastic fans, and that togetherness is what it`s going to come down to.

"We`re not an Arsenal or a Man City, we can`t afford to carry anyone, so the team as a whole must be much greater than its parts.

"We learn from our mistakes, but as players and people you tend to learn a lot from adversity. A lot more than you do when times are good, which we`ve had a lot of here the last few years.

"A lot of the lads here have done it before. It`s up to us now. We take a lot of the responsibility as players, so let`s dust ourselves down and drag this club next season to where we want."

If everyone can display Russell Martin's mind set then we have half a chance.
