    Ricardo's report v Villa

    It was painful to watch today as Villa were not that good, but we made them look good. Irrespective of our injury list, too many players failed to pick up runners, failed to cut out crosses and don't get me started on the amount of times we just gave the ball away. There are plenty of games left and we will get injured players back soon, but similar performances like today could soon see us anchored in that bottom three. Farke has said that we will not change our way of playing, but he may need to tweak his tactics a little as we are becoming very predictable.

    Enjoy it

    Despite all the injuries and lack of spending money we are still outside the bottom three. One win in this league can take you straight into the top half. When our key players return from injury Farke will have a full squad to choose from and I expect us to start picking points up away from home. I bet the bottom three would like to change places with us, especially Newcastle who have just let 5 in against Leicester.

    Substitutes

    Late substitutions, zonal marking, failure to leave any players on the halfway line for corners and free kicks are the way Farke likes to play, and this is unlikely to change. I would like to see us bring on a substitute with 20 mins to go especially if the outfield players are not threatening to score. If we leave Buendia and Pukki on the halfway line, at least for corners, this would mean the opposition would leave at least 2 back which might give our defenders a chance to pick up any runners; not to mention having an outlet if we clear the ball. This would also confuse our opponents who know we always bring 10 men back for corners and free kicks.

    Zimbo back in Training!

    Farke will always put out a team to win the game. Where possible I believe he will try and start with the same 11 unless there are injury doubts, or he feels he might need to change the formation against a specific opponent. I fully expect to see the same starting line up for Chelsea as they all played their part in the win against Newcastle. It is great news that he has Klose and Zimmermann coming back from injury, but that shouldn't mean he drops Hanley. You could argue that Buendia hasn't had the best of starts, but on his day he is a match winner. We have a much stronger squad this season and every member of that squad, if fit, would like to start the game. As a group they all supported each other last season, especially those players not in the matchday squad. I believe this will also be the case this season.

    Well we put up a better show than West Ham

    I saw enough in our game against Liverpool to suggest we have a good chance of staying up; as did the Liverpool manager. I listened to two supporters of West Ham and Crystal Palace yesterday saying the three promoted clubs will be an easy 6pts. Those two teams may well find they will struggle this season, especially West Ham who conceded 5 at home to Man City. I love it when people write us off.

    Norwich v Atalanta live stream

    I still worry about the defence. Farke clearly likes to play short passing between the back four and the keeper, as well as bringing all players back for corners and free kicks. He appears to be sticking with that same tactic this season so hopefully we can cause enough problems going forward to keep the opposition away from our defence. It worked last season so fingers crossed it will again this season.

    Oliveira - 30k a week

    Hopefully some club might be prepared to take him on loan and pay some of his reported 30k a week wages. If not we will just have to wait until his contract expires like we did with Naismith.

    Fence-ringing

    They have wealthy owners who can invest their own money.

    Max Arrons will he or won’t he?

    Webber has said all along that we do not need to sell, and the players are happy at Norwich. The only thing would be if a big club offered a figure we could not turn down, and the player wanted to go there. I am confident all our youngsters will want a season with us in the Premiership as they earned it by getting promotion.

    The Murphys?

    Yes they did serve Norwich well and both were rewarded with premiership contracts. I believe we now have sufficient wide players who can also play more centrally; as well as the promising young players in the U-23 team. I cannot see how they could add much more to the squad we have, but I wish them both well for the future.

    Patrick Roberts & the NCFC model

    It is pleasing to see that once again Man City are happy to send one of their promising youngsters out on loan to us; look how well Angus Gunn did when he came to Norwich. You only have to look at the Man City squad to understand why the majority of their homegrown youngsters are unlikely to make it to the first team. I think a lot of managers in the Premiership would like to have Buendia, Hernandez, Cantwell and Roberts in their squad.

    What price Webber?

    I personally think it is still work in progress for Webber, and he will relish the challenge of keeping Norwich in the Premiership. He has made it clear to the club that he would like to work abroad eventually. It will only enhance his CV if once again he finds good players, at the right price, to add to our current squad and keep us up.

    Alan Brazil

    If Alan (who ate all the pies) Brazil had said Ipswich were one of the bigger sides in League 1 then he would be correct.
  14. Hopefully he can stay injury free and score a few goals. Farke must see something in him, as the extension keeps him on the books until 2021.

    Next Season

    If he can stay fit I think Thompson could fit that DM role next season.
