    A draw is probably about right in this game and it suits us as well
    Over the next three travel updates, up to the end of February, WHO continued to advise against travel restrictions, even as evidence mounted over the potential worldwide catastrophe that may result from the coronavirus.
    And that remains the position today. As the infections increased, deaths mounted, WHO’s travel advice remained essentially unmoved..

    I can totally understand why the ref sent off Son in the heat of the moment, but that is an absolute gold standard use-case for VAR overturning a decision, and they totally whiffed it.

    Richarlison is such a wanker.

    Just seen his teammate go off with an horrific injury and then rolls about on the deck. What a prick.

    Good start by Norwich...

    They can't defend and that's why they are doomed.

    They Gave the ball away but he’s still got a lot to do. Pretty much a straight line run terribly defended. Tettey isn’t a CB but the other guy shouldn’t be showing him inside like that with no one really on the cover. Maybe keeper could have got down to it as well

    Watford conspiring to make Hernandez look like Messi. Two teams that will be very close to the bottom come May.

    Norwich are pitiful at the back, how did they not improve that area in the summer? Conceded 60+ last season I think.

    The two full back can’t defend and are constantly caught high up the pitch. They also don’t play in a way which the midfielders go and protect when they are up the pitch. They also aren’t good enough to gamble on their output like city would for example as they’d be confident they’d get the ball back and teams naturally have more men behind the ball against them than Norwich.

    Add the fact that the CBs (and makeshift CBs) aren’t very good then they are in trouble.

    Zubar-esque levels of stupidity from Kabasele.

    I think they had a lot of debt to clear so are doing a bit of a Burnley I think. Come up cash in, get relegated and then try and come up again with the same set of players.

    It's hard to see how they got promoted once, the chances of it happening again look slim. Clearly got on a winning streak and rolled with it.

    I have empathy for any fan group really even if I detest their club. All will have decent people as well as nobheads just like Wolves. The post I quoted was made during the first game of the season. They didn't spend much to come up and spent little when they did. The fans have been in the PL too many times to be excited by the novelty factor.

    You are making it out like they are Swindon.

    That's the opposite of what I'm saying. They aren't Swindon, Huddersfield or Barnsley. Their expectations should be higher, yet that's how the club have acted

    Ah right - sorry. Wrong end of that particular stick grabbed with gusto.

    Anyway. Norwich are fucking epically shit.

    Still think the fuckers will take points off us though.
    Carole Baskin is to blame.

    I wouldn't say they are epically shit. They have some decent players but they don't have decent defenders and playing as they do, leaves them wide open. They will face a huge task to stay up but there have been a lot worse than Norwich at this level

    Aarons and Lewis are good players, but they're asked to do far, far too much. They're pushed on so high they've got no chance when it breaks down.

    Yes - they have talented players within the squad. HOWEVER - Farke needs to realise just about now that their kamikaze style is not going to help them at this level. Park the bus, get some points on the board, or they are going to get completely cut adrift.

    Nah, fair play to sticking to how he wants to play. He probably knows it ends with relegation but asking his team to play in a way he doesn't like is shit.

    Cantwell looked really good at the start of the season, but has been epically terrible recently.

    It depends whether continuing in that style is more important than top flight safety. Maybe the plan is try this season, and if they fail come back with a stronger squad still playing with the same expansive style. I think the January window will say a lot about the ambitions for the season at Carrow Road.
