They're in really good form, 4 wins and a draw from the last 5 league games, just put 5 past Forest.  Only Brighton and Huddersfield have more points at home than Norwich, they're also the top goal scorers at home in the league.

 

I'm predicting a loss, maybe 3-1 to the Drunken Delia's.

Draw IMO. It's away and Norwich will fancy it. They'll attack us. Our problem recently has been teams shutting up shop. Norwich are unlikely to do that.

Brighton's run of games on the lead up to facing us are more favourable than ours. A win would be class but I think we will drop points here...

Then coming at us could play into our hands .. if Gayle is fit. Any update there?

No significant weaknesses.

 

There isn't one part of our game that significantly impedes our chances of winning a game. That doesn't mean we've no shortcomings, just no achilles heel.

 

There was a lot of chatter before the game about our perceived weakness at defending set pieces, but in that game Clark and Lascelles were imperious throughout the game and dealt with everything that came at them, and when called upon Darlow claimed balls into his box like picking apples from a tree.

 

We see areas to improve on, of course, but there isn't an area of our game that troubles me going into most games in this division. We're not playing brilliantly, and teams are digging in deeper and deeper against us. So I've predicted a win for Norwich because they're a decent Championship team and they've players with the ability to pull something from nothing.

Distribution from our left back isn't a weakness? I can think of a fairly significant ginger weakness in midfield.

Gayle is available Rafa said in the presser.

I'm fairly confident we'll pick something up from this, especially if Gayle is fit. As Rayvin said if they're high scorers at home they may fancy their chances and open up a bit to chase the win, in the games that teams have done this we've mostly won.

They have a good scoring rate but they've also let in a canny amount of goals this season and we have an excellent away record. I've went for 3-0 (as I do basically every game) but it'll no doubt be a mental score like 5-3 or something as last couple of seasons our games against these have been crackers.

Unfortunately I don't see it scheduled or listed on nufc.com.

 

I was hopeful too due to the timing, but I guess there's euro matches on?

Not a significant weakness in our ability to win games. The Ginger Pirlo doesn't start regularly enough to be considered a real weakness and Dummet's lack of attacking ability hasn't significantly weakened our chances of scoring. We'd be better if both of those players were improved upon, of course, but we're not weakened enough by them to damage our chance of winning games. 

 

Put it this way, Colback played 90 minutes against Wolves and was shite throughout, but we still looked fairly comfortable and good for the win. Dummett's flank offered bugger all in attack until Atsu came on and yet we still created enough chances to win the game.

 

I'm fairly confident we'll pick something up from this, especially if Gayle is fit. As Rayvin said if they're high scorers at home they may fancy their chances and open up a bit to chase the win, in the games that teams have done this we've mostly won.

I think it was an amalgamation of our two points, Fish. Naturally I was the one to get credit though. ;)
