Fletcher is close to signing a new contract.

Can’t believe that people on here are condemning a possible signing because of rumours that he dealt drugs.    One thing or squad is crying out for is someone that can distribute well 😳

Wait for the first time one of the new boys plays badly so we can start slagging him off as a waste of space?

You could also completely write one of them off before they kick a ball..

                Brynn 🙃

Fisher, Fry, McNair, Bola 

        Dijksteel, Howson 

          NML, Tav, Kebab

                 Watmore 

 

Why not try Watmore as a striker. He puts in a shift and know where the goal is.

Sav, Bolasie, Fletcher, Britt .. some bench!

Ah spot on!

I should then post about it excessively so I can tell everyone I was right all along if the player does turn out to be a dud.

 

That sound about right?

I’d go with this but probably swop Saville with Morsy. It’s great we now have attacking options, particularly with the high number of subs available and question marks over players match fitness

Saville has 4g 4a and is more dynamic than Morsy, who I love, don't get me wrong, but I think Howson can play that deeper midfield role just fine right now.

Wonder if we are looking at some free agents to get some more depth in the defensive department. 

We have Fry, McNair and Hall as out-and-out centre-backs, whilst Dijksteel and Bola have also played CB this season. I believe Dijksteel is the only one who hasn't played in a CB pairing, as Bola played in a 2 against Brentford in the FA Cup.

I think so long as we don't have a huge injury crisis, we should be fine. There's also Howson if absolutely necessary, he did alright there at times last season.

It's midfield I'm more worried about if we're sticking with a midfield 3. I don't think Warnock fancies Tav in the 3, nor will he in any way want to move McNair out of defence. Which, after the usual band of 3, leaves Hackney and other young lads to fill in the gaps.

So yeah, I really hope now that we've got the extra attacking players who can play all across the 3 in a 4-2-3-1, that we go with that from now moving forwards. It can take one of the less effective midfielders out and put something more positive behind the striker, like Tav or Kebano. Then we've got Johnson, Bolasie, Watmore and NML for the wide areas.

    • DZ has already hinted that Fry may be off, perhaps he’s one of the players that doesn’t want to be at the club. 
    • I feel sorry for Johnson, was playing really well before Christmas, creating and scoring. Loan players come in, he doesn’t get a look in and we are worse for it. Spence and Coulson often get called out, alongside the strikers.   I wouldn’t be surprised if Brit, Johnson, Akpom, Coulson and Fletcher are all pretty peed off and want away.  I’m still supportive of Warnock but he needs to take some responsibility. The loan signings seem to have disrupted the team spirit. Too many all at once? Too many straight into the team? He clearly doesn’t rate any of our strikers and Fletcher annoyed him getting injured again when he said he was fit and not signing a new contract.  Such a disappointing end to the season 
    • Just had a snoop in the Norwich club website to see if there was anything "official". Seems like it is an obligation to buy upon promotion rather than an option.
    • The last 4 years have been genuinely horrendous but I can’t agree that this is worse than it was under Pulis. I mean under Pulis there were times we played a flat back 5 of shotton, ayala, flint, friend, Saville. 4 plodders in midfield and Britt stood up top with literally no one within 50 yards of him.  At least this season Neil’s brought a bit of flair in general played people in their actual positions. Admittedly he appears to have lost his *** In this respect in the last few games. I’m not making a case for Warnock’s long term vision by the way, whatever the *** that is. Just that he is marginally less crap than Pulis.
    • Warnock was never going to be the long-term solution, with him in charge expect another mid-table finish next season at best. We'll be lucky not to finish in the bottom half this season, tbh.
