    EFL Trophy v Crawley

    Can listen to match commentary on Radio Norfolk. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_radio_norfolk

    EFL Trophy v Crawley

    Mair not playing suggests they don’t expect Fahrmann to be ready for Saturday’s game against Villa. But Heise is playing, so does that mean Lewis is okay? Or will Byram or Aarons cover left back? Or are they trying to get him some match fitness?

    Buendia's Transfer fee

    It states club or player performance. It doesn’t necessarily have to be promotion. It could be based on appearances or Norwich not getting relegated, it could be based on the player just still being around - not an uncommon clause. With the Buendia fee, it seems to be that Norwich were always likely to pay the full fee (£5m ish) but it is just how quickly that fee would be paid that was in the clauses. I suspect there was a ‘if Norwich go down we don’t pay any more, if they are promoted we pay the whole thing’ clause and then some additional bits and pieces around appearances. I’d also expect Getafe are due a chunk of any profit Norwich should make on him.

    A factor could be 'still at the club on June 1st each year'

    Now Hanley is injured

    The U23 centre backs are Famewo and Lomas. Famewo has played at League One level, but many Luton fans were a bit perplexed when Norwich signed him as he apparently had never looked that comfortable. Lomas has never played a senior game. I suspect we'd see Tettey at centre back (which he has filled in for before) or even Lewis there before any U23 players got a look in.

    Now Hanley is injured

    5 centre backs would be too many, 2 of them wouldn't even be on the subs bench if everyone was fit. When you consider that Amadou can also play as a centre back (although most of his experience there is as part of a 3 not a 2) then Norwich are well covered.

    Team for Crawley

    Farke made 10 changes for the Stevenage game compared to the WBA and Sheff U game either side of it last season - I wouldn't be surprised to see that level of changes for the game tonight. Fahrmann, Bryam, Roberts, McLean, Srbeny, Vrancic seem certs to start for me. I think Amadou will start at centre back and Tettey in midfield, but depends on how Farke sees his progress in training. If Norwich get a couple of rounds deeper into the cup I would expect fewer and fewer changes from league games.

    Had operation and out for 3 months (minus the one week since the op).

    Mason Bloomfield

    It isn't against FA rules - but may have been part of the contract arrangement that they wouldn't be allowed. Crawley may feel they don't want to play Mason due to split loyalties or to prevent such accusations - imagine if he were to miss a 90th min pen that could knock Norwich out - some may accuse him of doing so intentionally even if there was no such intention. He's out injured at the moment so it might not be possible for him to play anyway.

    Zimbo back in Training!

    No way would Hanley have not marked the man he was assigned to. In a zonal system defending teams generally have their best headers of the ball in the areas of most danger. Hanley and Godfrey were doing those roles. In the 2 half Norwich stopped man marking VVD at corners and concentrated on not letting the ball get to him - which worked much better than having Lewis pick him up.

    Zimbo back in Training!

    Apart from being at fault for the Newcastle goal and almost allowing Joelinton to score a head at 0-0.

    Cano Football Article - NCFC Statistical Analysis

    Another interesting analysis here with a slightly different take to the Cano one. https://medium.com/@jonathanblathwayt/norwich-v-newcastle-61a4826ac6a9

    Stat attack

    Webber isn’t really a stats guy. That is the realm of other people in the recruitment team. The ‘money ball’ aspect of Norwich’s recruitment is over played a bit (and they will be the first to tell you that). Kenny McLean’s data was actually pretty bad but they signed him off the back of physical scouting after trips to watch Maddison. Webber spotted Pukki a few years back and tried to get Wolves to sign him when he worked there, but Wolves didn’t go for it. Norwich got a bit lucky with Pukki, although they liked him, no one really thought he’d have this kind of impact and was initially signed as back up to Rhodes. No data was used in the signing of Leitner - Farke knew a loan was possible and pushed Webber to do the deal, he wasn’t even scouted.

    I suspect his recruitment at Leicester was more luck that any great insight or he had good scouts/analysts there who he didn't take to Everton. You so often see it with Sporting Directors that they are amazing at one club and awful at the next - Monchi's time at Roma being the biggest example of this.
