I found myself wondering if Norwich had had enough of any nationalities to be able to name full XI's. Thought it might make an interesting thread. I decided to start with this:

Netherlands:

 

                            Krul

Colin Hooiveld Dijks Derveld Van Wijk

          Wildschut Fer De Waard

           Rigters  Van Wolfswinkel

Scandanavian - Bit tenuous this one, happy for this to be improved upon!

 

Jääskeläinen

Helveg Askou Dumic Olsson

Jonsson Tettey Molby

Elmander Svensson Pukki

 

Bench Nielsen, Johansson, Nedergaard, Fuglestad, Ottosson

Off the top of my head, I highly doubt we'll be able to find a full XI from another country outside the British Isles.

How about an all-foreign XI with only one player from any one country?

GK Tony Warner (Trinidad & Tobago)
RB Steen Nedergaard (Denmark)
CB Zak Whitbread (USA)
CB Dejan Stefanovic (Serbia)
LB Martin Olsson (Sweden)
RM Ruel Fox (Montserrat)
CM Alex Tettey (Norway)
CM Leroy Fer (Netherlands)
LM Onel Hernandez (Cuba)
AM Emi Buendia (Argentina)
ST Teemu Pukki (Finland)

I like it, but perhaps have this on a seperate thread sa will simply derail this one. More freedom of selection with your idea could make for some interesting competing line-ups  🙂

I'm not sure there's much more mileage left in your thread, unless you want to do the home nations or make five-a-side teams? 🙂

Not internationals, but you get quite a good squad of players that have played for both Norwich City and Coventry City.......

 

Interesting...

Can think of Bellers, Bell, Dublin, Madders, ?Edworthy, ?Clingan

Passlack - Zimmerman - Franke - Heise

Trybull - Leitner

Steipermann - Srbeny -Hernandez

 

Could stick Vadis or de Leat in there too if you turn your screen sideways,

Can't imagine it'll be long before we can finish this team out and out though.

As Keepers are the problem - 

https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/norwich-city/torhueterchronik/verein/1123

 

This would appear to highlight that Theoklitos is the ONLY non-British keeper we have ever had apart from Krul? For keepers then, triallists and youth team players are allowed (not sure that even helps)!

Big ups for getting Theo and keeper in the same sentence. 😱
