No need to change a winning side - unlucky for RVW, but another chance for Elmander to prove he''s worth keeping in up top with Hooper.

Very concerned about the left side of the pitch. Fer played there last week and left Ollson on his own against two men nearly every attack. If Swansea exploit this we will be in big trouble. Would have preferred to see Garrido at left back and Ollson on the wing.
Anyway, nice to see him keep with two up top, would like to see a bit more from Elmander this week though, not done enough to justify his starting spot at the moment, IMO. Would like to see Wes get some more game time.

Agree completely. Fer did well in his offensive contributions vs WBA, but his defending was awful, and poor Olsson had a lot to do on his side.

the WBA rightback, Billy Jones, looked like he was a member of Brazil´s world cup squad, and Fer was nowhere to be seen.

Low frequency in Fer´s defensive footwork, and did not look like he thought it was his job to do a defensive job too.

I agree, Garrido at LB and Olsson on the left wing would be good.

Typical Hughton to cling onto something that worked result wise last time around, but every competent football fan could see we were dead lucky against WBA.

Very disappointed by RVW''s continued absence and fancied seeing him given some game-time with Hooper.

This toe injury has turned into quite a serious thing and it''s a pity we seem to have been a bit starved of the details.

Is there any indication as to exactly why he''s not ready as planned?

If Hughton was confident enough to say he would be ''in contention'' for Swansea then I would imagine it is very much a case of that he isn''t quite ready for today but probably will be involved next week

[quote user="lincoln canary"]BJ again. Wtf. Should be Hoolahan at home. This side didnt really work at WBA and we got a bit lucky. Not sure we''ll get away with it again.[/quote]

Yep, isn''t this typical Hughton.

The guy is clueless. Nathan Dyer will have the freedom of Norwich down our lefthand side, and cause endless problems.

Hoolahan need to play vs a ball playing team like Swans, agreed. Again, clueless Hughton.

Admittedly, this post is a hidden jinx to allow the poor Johnson to score :)

And he duly scores.
