If we were to play Spence as a fullback, he shouldn't be starting as Dijksteel is miles better than him there.

Then we could actually have one less full-back on the pitch and one more winger, that's a net positive, regardless of whether Spence ends up on the pitch or not right now.

I think this game is made for Roberts. Spence hasn't had that much to do defensively on that side, Johnson makes a bit more sense as Bola is often drifting infield to follow Buendia. That and Johnson is having a decent game.

Wish we’d just have Roberts on instead of Spence. 

My concern is that Roberts would leave us too exposed when they counter and Farke would really know how to exploit Roberts' weaknesses

Not by me.

I'd much prefer him at fullback to Spence, but he's been so good at CB that it's hard to justify moving him.

Well the justification would be to get another actual attacking player on the pitch wouldn’t it?

Well I missed the end of that but the 30 minutes or so I did see we looked very decent.

Seems I also missed our 3 shots on target (according to BBC stats). Norwich had 5 attempts but none on target.

Would be happy if the game finishes like this, but it looks like we have the measure of Norwich and finished the half on top. Definitely can't rule out Boro sneaking a win 2nd half.

This isn’t a roberts game tbf. We’ve done well for the most part. Tav has been a touch disappointing , but I wouldn’t be dragging him at this stage. To me we are short a quality winger for this formation still. Let’s see what whatmore has at about 60-70 minutes and that’s about it

HT.  Didn't feel like a bore draw.

That’s exactly what it felt like to me and that’s what it was really. A scrappy game punctuated by the odd counter attack from either side. Us trying to shut them down and contain them and them not being able to break the shackles.

Plenty of half chances, but there are yellow shirts swarming round us anytime we try and do anything. Well need to get a lucky break or a defensive clanger to score today I think. Same for Norwich

If we practise penalties we will win the cup. Because we will not concede another goal this season. Problem is we will not score another either.... 😉

Its a terrible game of football, little skill, no action, headless chickens, but we still watch, digest and comment and try to make out a few good points... Be honest its shi4e but i still think we will win. In off somebody's head while he's not looking , or the referee's backside etc.

    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.

    • I don't know anywhere near enough about St Pauli or Bundesliga 2 to really say if it means anything, but I notice Stojanovic has only kept 1 clean sheet in his 8 games there, letting in 13 goals. In the same period Bettinelli has played 10 homes, kept 2 clean sheets, and let in 16. Fairly similar statistically, though I've not actually watched their games and I imagine Stojanovic made more saves in that period.
