Blackburn v Norwich match thread

Recommended Posts

Team:

Ruddy; Pinto, Bennett, Klose, Olsson; Howson (c), Tettey; Ja. Murphy, Naismith, Hoolahan; Jerome. Subs: McGovern (GK), Whittaker , Bassong, Mulumbu, Lafferty, Pritchard, Jo. Murphy.

I would have liked to see pritchard start but fair play to Murphy!

[quote user="king canary"]Glad to see both Murphy''s involved. Any reason why Canos isn''t even on the bench?[/quote]
And Maddison. Why are Mulumbu and Lafferty on the bench while Canos and Maddison miss out?

Very attacking line up. Bit open down the right with Murphy ahead of Pinto so that is a bit of a risk. From what I''ve seen Jacob tracks back better than Jos so that might be why he''s been preferred.

Good to see one of the youngsters from the academy start

Got to be honest, I''m not sure about this.

Back four is strong, and Tettey and Howson pick themselves.

It''s the three behind Jerome. Concerned that isn''t going to work, I guess Naismith and Hoolahan will interchange, but Jacob Murphy will try to hug the line? could be a bit disjointed that.

Canos, Brady and Pritchard hopefully will battle it out for positions either side of hoolahan / Naismith in future.

If Brady stays of course.

Subs are based on positional cover.

Mulumbu is needed to cover Tettey and Howson. Lafferty is are only other striker so. Pritchard and Murphy cover the a/m places. No room as yet for Maddison and Canos.

I would expect, when up to speed, Pritchard would play ahead of the murphys. Then I believe their will only be one place on the bench for Josh or Jacob. Maddison will take the other slot.

It will be Canos, Josh, Jacob fighting for the one place on the bench.

No Brady then ?

Thought Pritchard might start as he said he''d had a full preseason but guess he''ll be on 2nd half and Alex knows best
