  1. I cannot see Farke changing it unless there are injuries. You are more likely to see Stiepermann back in soon as Farke has been waxing lyrical about how valuable a player he is. I watched him play for the u-23's yesterday in his comeback game against Leeds and on that showing I would rate Dowell and Sorenson or even Josh Martin ahead of him.
  2. I agree that he is a talented player, and we saw that before he was injured. We have a strong squad now and it will be difficult for him to get a start. Being an attacking midfielder he is unlikely to replace Buendia, Cantwell, and Vrancic who are all playing well.
  3. Very creative and funny response but sadly you missed the point. If you had read it properly I suggested tweak the tactics not change completely. I have no idea where you read a random boot upfield. You may have missed your vocation and perhaps you should consider becoming a BBC reporter.
  4. I agree with most of what you say. We can start a new run of wins with Stoke on Sat.
  5. I don't have the stats for every team but I think Brentford, Barnsley, Watford, Reading and Luton have all created more chances than us in the matches we have played against them.
  6. As I said in my original post when we move the ball quickly no team can live with us, unfortunately we only see this sort of movement perhaps 10 mins in a game.
  7. We are lucky if we create 3 or 4 chances a game. We can often play 20 sideways, backwards and forwards passes in our own half and as soon as we get into the opposition half it breaks down.
  8. That front foot approach doesn't happen enough for me. We pass sideways and backwards more than any other team in this division. The opposition allow us to bring it into their half and then challenge us to get past a well organised defence. It is not surprising that we don't have too many shots on goal as we continually pass it and get nowhere. This is the way Farke plays.
  9. Hugill only plays when Pukki is injured, that is not a plan B. From what I have seen so far this season Farke will go to a back 3 and bring on all the attacking players, often late on e.g. when we were 2 down to Swansea, that isn't a plan B either.
  10. We can agree to differ. I have watched Norwich teams play for over 50 years and given the choice I will always go for those managers who are positive from the outset. If we are lucky enough to get promoted, and Farke goes for the same tactics as he did last time, we will be straight back down.
  11. It is often the way you approach the game that will determine the outcome. When we played Boro at home we didn't get a shot on goal and played our usual slow game. When I watched the highlights of Brentford away to Boro it was attack from the beginning from Brentford. Over the years I have watched Norwich teams play the Brentford way and I prefer that to our current tactics.
  12. I think we have been quite lucky in a number of games, but I am not complaining that we are still top. I have lost count of how many times in matches either Aarons or Sorenson have received the ball in space, but their first instinct is not to go forward, but stop and pass it back to either Hanley or Gibson. The opposition know that if you close those players down they are unlikely to try and go past you. I hope I am wrong and this is just a blip, but we have some winnable games coming up now so let's see how many we win.
  13. I think it is fair to say that most opposition managers know exactly how we are going to play, and can plan accordingly. I would like to see our coach tweak our tactics so as to give the opposition something to think about. My suggestions would be to possibly start with 2 strikers, as playing just Pukki makes it easy for their centre backs. I would like him to change the zonal marking for corners and leave our quickest player on the halfway line so we have an outlet when we win a header or Krul catches the ball. Finally, cut back on the insistence of Krul to give the ball to either central defender every time, invariably those defenders are pressed and we end up giving the ball away. These are not major points but it would at least be worth trying occasionally. When we move the ball quickly going forward no side can handle us, unfortunately we spend more time passing sideways and backwards and we become predictable.

  15. It was inevitable that we would have to sell because we, like other smaller clubs, don't have rich owners who are prepared to spend whatever it costs to stay in the Premiership. I listened to an interview a few years ago when the owner of Leicester was asked how much was he willing to spend to keep Leicester in the Premiership and he replied however much it takes. We will continue to attract good youngsters because they can see that they will be given the chance to play, irrespective of how young they are. They too will in turn move on, and we will reap the benefit when we sell them. We are still financially much better off than the majority of teams in the Championship. I do believe that Aarons, Buendia, Cantwell, Godfrey and Lewis all did well in their first year of premiership football and may well have stayed with us if we had not been relegated. I also believe they will be more likely to improve under a manager whose preference is to move the ball quickly and forward, as opposed to sideways and backwards. Hopefully after 16th Oct Farke can concentrate on putting together a squad to challenge for promotion. I

  17. After all the comments that have been made I stick with my original statement that I think he lost the dressing room before lockdown. If offers come in and are accepted for Aarons, Buendia, Cantwell and Godfrey then four of our young players who like to play on the front foot will have gone; five if you include Lewis. I don't think any of these players enjoyed continually having to stop going forward and pass the ball sideways or backwards. I am happy to admit I was wrong if he is still here after 10 games.
  18. I am suggesting that some of the current players don't like some of the tactics I have mentioned, hence they are not giving 100% for the manager.
  19. Luckily I am a season ticket holder and have been watching us play for the 50 years. I have seen Norwich sides not play for Worthington and Roeder in the past, and I am still think some of the current squad are not behind Farke. We have played average football so far in the first three games, perhaps some supporters are happy with that.
  20. I believe he may well have lost the support of a number of players who are not happy with his style of play. I have not seen any real passion from the team for a long period. I personally don't like zonal marking, slowly playing it out from the back, sideways and backwards passing, not leaving a player up for opposition corners, and not playing two up front, especially at home. I might have got it wrong, but this doesn't look like a side fighting for the club.
  21. I know Farke wants to stick with his system but it just isn't working. I would like to see him really surprise Soton and do away with the zonal marking and go for man marking. If he is feeling really adventurous then leave Buendia up on the halfway line for their corners.I know he likes to play a defensive midfielder so put Godfrey there alongside Buendia, Cantwell and Mclean. Bring back Zimmermann to partner Hanley with Aarons and Lewis making up the back four. Then at least for home games play Drmic with Pukki up front.
  22. We should not be surprised that we come under so much pressure because our players are set up to mark a zone, hence they do not pick up runners. Farke will not change his style of play even though we are being outplayed. She'd Utd midfielders move the ball very quickly, ours dwell on the ball and have it taken off their feet. 45 mins to try and change it and be more competitive.
  23. Watford showed how to win well. They were tight at the back solid in midfield and electric up front. Farke should show our squad that video and say that is how you have to compete if you want to stay up. Every single Watford player closed the Liverpool players down, and when they broke, their only thought was to go forward; no sideways and backwards passes. They didn't mark spaces and let runners go, they kept with them.
