Don't think Pukki and Sargent have developed a partnership yet. It will come.

Agreed, but I'm also thinking in terms of when the likes of Rashica and Tzolis can be unleashed off the bench.

I don't really understand the two up top in this formation, would prefer have an extra midfielder so at least we don't get over run in Midfield. I just don't understand the game plan we are playing Burnley ffs

We've not been good Hogesar; no point pretending otherwise.

5-3-2 seems to have at least steadied the ship; doing OK today.

OTBC

Not being good and not showing fight are two incredibly different things. Shouldn't need explaining but sounding like it does...

Sargent who hasn't scored any goals anywhere and hasn't got any assists anywhere.

That ball from Normann to Aarons was class. But that lack of confidence meant nothing came of it.

I think Normann is made to play in the 4231 his passing is fantastic

As an American, that's quite high praise for our lot.

Just lost the mouthful of tea all over the screen at that one. Well played!

It wasn't meant as a sleight - Elmander had many good qualities (and scored one of the PLs most underrated goals), but he wasn't prolific

Why is Giannoulis marking Wood at a corner?

Farke loves a Greek tragedy

No need to be an ar5ehole when replying; it was unclear that your sentence was simply referring to fight.

Half time couldn't come soon enough. A breather, a regroup and hopefully Farke has read enough from the first half to at least keep this point and hopefully take all three.

Sounds workman-like and not very entertaining but I'm ok with that for now. A hard fought point is much needed if we can keep it up.

Hanging in there is better than normal.

Way too easy for Burnley to get their corners in. Something has to change otherwise they'll be sure to take their chance, or we'll fail to deal with one and leave it to a VAR decision.

If we get the stroke of luck and go on to win this, it could really energise the team. Burnley have dragged us into their kind of match, but we're meeting them head on.

Scrappy, one dimensional and downright agricultural.

The most likely I’ve seen us to take points so far, I approve.

It takes Norwich loads of time to get the ball into even their half, yet one quick pass from Burnley and they're already around our box threatening a dangerous cross.

Tzolis to come on, snatch the inevitable penalty from Pukki and rabona Panenka it home in the 93rd minute, reducing Farke to tears.

You heard it here first.

Sargent off for tzolis. I know it’s early days but I just don’t see what Sargent offers apart from work rate.

Burnley's players are really tryharding for a penalty today.

Literally enter the penalty area and there’s an appeal. Can’t decide whether it makes them more or less likely to get a marginal call.
