Icecream Snow, July 31 in Main Discussion - Norwich City
I’m halfway through but a few interesting points here.
He acknowledges that promoted teams that based their promotion campaign on a solid defence will have greater success in their first premier league season. Wonder if he will change his approach to become more solid next season.
The Pinkun main page picked up on the most interesting quotes. It sounds like Sinani and Sitti are more speculative punts than at first thought, and sounds like we're looking to buy some experienced Championship players , so could make for a very interesting window.
Surely both Sinani and Sitti were always the very definition of a speculative punt?
Both cheap and young with one from Luxembourg and the other from a midtable Ligue 2 side
One record Farke perhaps doesn't realise we achieved was that for the first time ever Norwich City have been mentioned in The Guardian's chess column:
Carlsen’s match against China’s world No 3, Ding Liren, last Sunday started four hours early so that Carlsen could manage his Fantasy Premier League team. Back in December, he became No 1 at FPL for a few days and repeated that for a single day in late June. He dropped back again, then made another surge to No 4 in the final week. He would have been No 1 for a third time had he selected Raheem Sterling as his captain instead of Marcus Rashford.
The final day was an anti-climax even though Carlsen outclassed Ding on the chessboard, as he dropped to 11th in FPL. He had even enlisted his chess coach, Peter Heine Nielsen, to try to create a model team designed to pass the three ahead of him. A clue to what went wrong was his tweet: “Hoping (Michail) Antonio gets 3 bonus.” But the West Ham striker, who had scored all four against Norwich, went goalless.
Bit of an amateur mistake to bank on a player just because he'd done well against us...
