Team for Norwich (H)

by Theroyalbox » 29 Sep 2017 08:22

I think we need to go back to what was so successful for us last season, countless home wins 1-0 against good sides with a 5-3-2

Vito
Gunter McShane Moore Illori Blackett
Evans
Kelly Swift
JDB Aluko

If Barrow is fit then id like to see him in the side maybe over Aluko

the top list certainly looks a lot more solid to me too, i would be happier to see that team.

..........................Mannone
................Ilori....McShane....Moore
McCleary.......................................Blackett
..............Bacuna...Evans...Kelly
.........................Bod.....MoBo

Never going to happen though. Gunter will play, no chance Stam will change the entire midfield, and unlikely to bring Barrow straight back for a start or drop Aluko. More likely:

..........................Mannone
..Gunter....McShane....Moore....Blackett
..............................Berg
...................Edwards...Kelly
....McCleary.............................Aluko
.........................Bodvarsson

I like that side as well. If Obita was fit it would be much better though.

I don't think he's going to play Bodvarsson. More likely Beerens in for him, so the same side that started vs Hull.

If he persists without his only fit striker who still has a decent scoring rate during a period of poor perfomances and few chances, he deserves to get the booing he'll inevitably receive if we don't win.

I think we look better with a back five and also, I want to see Ilori play every week
as he has class and would get better with a sustained run in the side.

I think Gunter as a RWB is a better player than at RB, I'd prefer a fit Obita at LWB
but Blackett is OK, and, like Gunter, his weakness as FB is partly overcome

I've been really impressed by Bacuna who I think is better than Williams
and, if fit, should always start, IMO.

Even if JVDB sometimes pulls of a brilliant last-cutch tackle, he isn't the future
and I would prefer to see Evans in the holding MF role. He isn't spectacular
and can go unnoticed, but I believe he is like Ilori, needs a sustained run and
a stable side to develop. I think he could be a great player.

Kelly on his best days would always get in the side, but ATM he doesn't seem that happy to me

We seem to have a few players in the squad who are playing below their potential - Swift for one.

Is he another who needs a long run?

I think it's folly not to play with a target man, but Stam seems to put players in for ball-skills
alone rather than consider balance, options etc. We should play Dadi and play the system we'll play when
Kerrie comes back, stick with it, stick with a core 9/10/11 players.

I think we have an unhappy dressing room. It's nice to know you're 95% c certain to be picked
and, even if you know you're LIKELY to be sub, it's clear and you can set your sights on breaking
into the side. But performing well, then being dropped, must be highly demoralising.

Also, that "team effect" where the same 11 play, get used to each other's flicks, runs etc
is important.

If we don'\t play Dadi as the focal point (highly likely) I think Stam has to tell one of the "wingers" he's CF
and to stick to the role, let the other two of the from three swap around.

I worry that McCleary is getting into the side on his stats over the last few years.

ATM he's a shadow of his best days (but he might be a brilliant RWB)



I'd like to see (but it won't happen)

==============Manone===============

McCleary Ilori McShane Moore Gunter/Blackett

==============Evans/Bacuna=================

=====Barrow ==== Kelly ===== Swift =======

==============Dadi==================

Both Barrow or Swift, only if 100%
