I'll be there about 2pm. Will eventually put colours on so I'll be avoiding any Norwich only pubs as mentioned. Probably walk into City once I'm checked in to hotel etc..

A lot of pubs wont serve you with colours.

Standard/expected. Was alright last time, only had my shirt on and there were LCFC/Norwich mixed. Think it was Nelson.

Where’s your hotel located ? 

Premier Inn. The one by river. As my above line it was full last time we played you.

Premier Inn. The one near Railway St.

Avoid the river area bars and head into the city .  With plenty of hours to spare try the Murderers. It’s very neutral early on and the Lamb near by is nice too for a nice experience of Norwich.

The trouble was at the Complete Angler opposite the train station. Nice location but never a great pub, who wants beer in plastic glasses. Norwich version of the Counting House.

I know but some other minor trouble in others. I'm a norfolk fox.

I'm meeting a Norwich mate, who's suggested this place. Is it any good. Reckon they would have any issues with a 8 year old in colours? If not I may have to repack his suitcase lol

Used to be,and I don’t think he would have suggested it otherwise.

Anyone travelling early try the Belgium Monk. Foods great and Belgium beers. But be warned it's not cheap.

Sounds like my kind of place.

 

Just checked the menu, I’ll be vomiting.

Norwich seven points from safety ....  it’s still feasible, they arent a lost cause - of all clubs, we should appreciate that 

 

a very dangerous opponent tomorrow as their requirement for a first win in a fair while to kick start a ‘great escape’ becomes ever desperate

I want a snood like the one worn by the big soft German, obviously not red with a Liver Bird, or whatever it is. I think they gave them out to Burnley awayers but I can't find them in the shop,other than with an Addidas logo and not the club badge. A nice one in Royal Blue would look dapper. Want one. 

A snood could double up as a face mask too...... :ph34r:

 

A flag is better than nothing I guess, although it sounds like they are giving away something for all of the remaining away games, and some people will always feel shortchanged getting something they don’t like lol

Will be useful to have a face mask when on next seasons UCL tour. Don't want to be identified when chucking plastic chairs around.

Although from the fens he was head of finance for Aviva and is CFO for Angling Direct.

He doesn’t do shitholes.

 

 You watch it will be a dive won’t it.

Bottom of the League...surely this is a team we can confidently face without Ndidi?

I know we ballsed it up at the KP, but I reckon this should be 3 points.

 

I'm in the Iheanacho starting camp right now, I think he's there.

It does create so many line up options when he does start though, so it's not such a simple decision.

He's never really lit up the lone striker role, so that means Vardy can't be dropped for him alone.

This then has to be worked from front to back.

 

Vardy Iheanacho

Maddison

Chilwell Tielemans Choudhury Ricardo

Fuchs Soyuncu Evans

Schmeichel 

 

Strong case for Praet to remain over Choudhury and even over Tielemans, I just think a clatterer growling in the space in front of defence could help stability. 

 

Apart from Perez and Ndidi, I think that was about the set up for the Newcastle away game and it worked out well.

Excellent shout for formation.

Even if ndidi is back. Can't  see hamza coming in for praet and personality dont think he should.

 

Chilwell as wingback though does scare me to death after the last try. Justin? Maybe even fuchs tbh. But that change aint gonna happen so id still be happy to try it but just hope chilwell isnt having one of his (far too frequent imo) shit days

Can Rodgers just show them highlights of the 9-0 against Southampton?

 

That's how good we can be. If we just go out and enjoy it, and show our talent, we should win this comfortably.

 

 

I think rodgers has been guilty of over thinking it since then. But thats definitely not the main cause.

 

Shit form being so bad we cant pass a single ball, show for a pass, or attempt to move forwards is not a tactical decision.

This is going to be a tough game. We struggle against sides like Norwich and they will be up for it knowing they can get at us under our current form. 

 

From our side we need to find that winning mentality again. We've lost our mojo a bit since Christmas, but now is time we need to cement our 3rd place as other teams are closing the gap.

Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke: "Leicester are good in their pressing but we were capable of bypassing that [in the 1-1 draw] in December. 

"They like to overload the centre, so we have to be compact to take the key players out of the game."

only Smarties have the answer...

The Choudhury vs Praet conundrum, to me, is down to who the technically better player in that DM role is. 

Choudhury's growing experience in his natural role versus Praet's skill and ability in a slightly shoehorned position, tough one. Praet, statistically, does stand a better chance of seeing out the 90 over Hamza. 

 

Wherever Chilwell plays he's going to be questioned, left back or wing back he's under the spotlight, and personally I don't see too much difference, from his current play, to say either one is his stronger position, so I'm fine with us sticking with seeing how he proves himself with these remaining games, purely to work out if he's sellable or not. 

 

I think only injury to Chilwell and Fuchs would bring Justin into the left back position, I can't see Rodgers gambling and bringing Justin into that position, what with the ramifications it would bring. Only us ruthless online half-wits would make such a decision.
