  1. Well generally teams do try to get the ball to their best/most dangerous player(s). And Sterling is one of the most dangerous players around.
  2. Had last night been a serious game against a serious team Sterling would have played.

    I don't think I've ever looked at the team sheet and thought "Ugh, Tettey". For me he's a name you look for and hope to see.

    Casino Royale

    Well exactly. Southgate has proven he will put talented young players in so there's no problem over that. And he's been putting JM in squads. To me it looks like he's saying to JM "You're this close, go that extra bit and show how much you want it." I don't really know how much Southgate cares about the casino thing but there is clearly something about JM that doesn't sit quite right with him and is perhaps at odds with the good guy image JM tries to project.

    Raheem Sterling

    I love Norwich but I love football generally. This is a great Norwich team so it's a joy to watch them. But I will also be looking forward to watching Kevin De Bruyne because he's the best midfielder in the world. Similarly Sterling is one of the most dangerous forwards and Aguero is one of the most deadly finishers. Etc. Overseen by the best coach in the game. Even those times when Suarez scored for fun against us, we may have made it easier for him than it should have been but you still knew the guy was on totally another level to anyone else.

    Maddison and Mings

    Yes. Though, maybe, AWB is not as good in attacking positions as Max but defensively he is better.

    Frank Lampard

    Guardiola did ok at Barca. Zidane has had reasonable success too.

    James Maddison article re U21s

    Madness not starting Foden if he's fit and available.
  9. Playing for Celtic hasn't done Virgil van Dijk much harm.
  10. AWB is a very good defender, to say the least.

    Buendia cost 5 Million then .

    Whatever we paid for him it was worth it. The most exciting talent I can remember seeing in a Norwich shirt.
  12. England started the game with Chilwell (22), Rice (20), Rashford (21) and Sancho (19). And Sterling is still only 24.

    Grealish or Bamford

    Grealish is a very good player.
  14. As comebacks go, that was decent. They wanted it more.

    Super Mario

    Unbelievably good at football.

    Relegated without Buendia?

    Regardless of the stats, Buendia is just another level. By a mile the most exciting prospect I've seen at Norwich.

    Another interesting analysis of Norwich

    Hard to know where the ceiling is for him, apart from that it is high and probably higher than any other player Norwich have had.

    Sublime player.
  19. Ref wasn't giving it but then went with Wigan's call.
  20. GJP


    That would seem about on the money to me.

    Semi Ajayi

    I thought he looked decent when they played down here but got caught on the ball for our 3rd goal, iirc.
  22. Unbelievably talented and he works very hard as well. A joy to watch.

    Changes for next game?

    In the latter part of last season, after a few months of settling in, Vrancic was probably our best player. A few more months down the line and the guy goes from being our best player to the best player in the league. Leitner is an absolute genius at what he does but Vrancic...he is some player.

    Argentina have got one or two decent players tbf. But he is a very talented boy.
  25. Penalty for me. And I don't think it's entirely accidental his arm got in the way. It may only have been a split second but I think he got a good enough look as the shot was about to be struck before he turned away.
