Thread: Saints vs Norwich - Build-up

  1. Default Saints vs Norwich - Build-up

    No idea what to make of this game. Need to use the momentum from the 2nd half today.

    Start Valery and Boufal. Get Long on for backup.

    Norwich are much more open and attack minded than Watford so I’m expecting a completely different game !
    Hopefully it’ll be more of an ‘away performance’ from us and we get the win !

    Another must win against a average team.

    4222 again for me, attack best form of defence, and I’d like to see Boufal given a free role in the centre.

    what is the right starting line up?

    Start with the team that finished yesterday.

    Another 3 points will be very welcome.

    I like this. Also think a decent option would be to have Adams in place of Obafemi in the formation we used the last two games think Adams has that bit of muscle and ability to hold the ball which would could help link nicely with all the pace and skills of boufal djenepo and Ings

    Unimpressed with Obafemi yesterday, would not start him.

    Something I'd like to see one day...Reverse Christmas tree - 4-1-2-2-1

    ----------------------McCarthy-----------------------

    Cedric------Stephens-----Bednarek-------Bertrand

    ----------------------Romeu-------------------------

    -------Ward-Prowse------------Armstrong---------

    Djenepo--------------------------------------Boufal

    -----------------------Ings--------------------------

    But for this game, I think the line up will be unchanged from the Watford game, even as much as seeing Redmond start over Boufal. (Unless Redmond takes the Obafemi position and Ralph brings Boufal in.)

    They have 4 very good players, Pukki, Aarons, McLean & Hernández and some very poor ones, especially in defence.

    Pukki and Ings both to score in a 3-3 draw, with Redmond getting a last minute equalizer against his old club?

    Time to give Adams a go again, he at least does shield the ball; and swap wings for Redmond on the right and Moussa on the left cutting in, neither looked comfortable yesterday; otherwise the same team assuming SA out and keep SB for the second half

    They look handy going forward but dodgy at the back.

    Could be any result, its hard to gauge teams performances vs Arsenal, though Norwich looked decent today, they pretty much scored from a deflection and their only decent chance. They also looked like conceding from pretty much every corner as well.

  28. Default

    They looked really lively and threatening today. The back 4 will need to play well and have their heads on a swivel. I’d sit Redmond and Cedric (he’s so bad he makes others worse). Assuming Armstrong is not fit I’d go with.

    I think the way they play will suit us, they play out more from the back and Arsenal don't press very well so didn't put them under pressure and they will I think commit far more men forward than Watford did. Ings, Djenepo and Boufal could cause them all sorts of problems.

  30. Default

    Their Everton result worries me a lot more than the Arsenal one. They've only scored away on the opening day and in that game. Everton were a shambles but we can be a shambles too.

    Buendia, Hernandez and Pukki are fast and very smart, I can see a defence featuring Stephens getting turned inside out. We might also need the defensive nous of Cedric despite his inability going forward. Is Yoshi injured?

    I do think having Long in the side helps with ‘hurrying up’ the opposition and getting in their faces with a highish press. Just wish he could actually shoot. Those shanked chances yesterday... Blimey

    Long's a good sub, keep him there. Redmond needs stopping, we can't keep rewarding that level of performance when there's other options there. Assuming Armstrong isn't fit

    Correct, due to streaming of the match on Amazon Prime. Quite likely to catch a few out!

    Works for me.

    Basically same team but of consider Valery for Cedric, Boufal for Redmond and maybe Long for Obafemi.

    Redmond, Adams, Romeu Obafemi the main bench options.

    Yes early kick off and there is a train strike on SWR which might cause a problem for a few, last trains are earlier than usual.
    The Watford crowd was low under 27k, can see this being even smaller.

    I'll predict frustrating 1-1 Draw.

    Spot on.

    I'd go:

    -------------McCarthy
    Valery Stephens Bednarek Bertrand
    ----------Hojbjerg--JWP-------------
    ----Boufal----------------Djenepo
    -------------Long-Ings----------

    Would be tempted to give Adams another go down the middle, but seems out of favour at the moment, and 4th choice which I find odd...problems on the training pitch? I'd also drop Redmond, and look to bring him on if we're struggling, not at the races recently.

    Hope that the manager of Norwich will get sacked after this match, following the sacking of the managers of Arsenal and Watford.

    Please explain how you have come to this conclusion but I doubt you can,
    just based on watching him on telly and with zero credible reason I would suggest

    All those who want Redmond dropped for this game are forgetting that Norwich is his old club and ex-players have a habit of scoring against their old clubs. If he is going to be dropped, this is not the time to do it.

    Really odd reason not to drop someone.
