Ki, Krafth, And Shelvey In Starting Eleven At Norwich City



Steve Bruce has announced his starting eleven for the today’s big match at Carrow Road.

As was reported earlier, Sean Longstaff is not in the first eleven but will be on the bench. The very experienced Ki Sung-yueng comes in for Sean in the midfield three alongside Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey.

Emil Krafth also comes in to make his debut at right wing-back with Javier Manquillo moving to the bench.

The rest of the team remains unchanged though Allan Saint-Maximin’s hamstring injury will not be risked as he is not in the team today.

This is the Norwich team that the lads will face this afternoon. It’s great to see Tim Krul back in the Premier League where he belongs.

Howay The Lads!

What Will Be The Result Against Tim Krul And Norwich At Carrow Road On Saturday?

    Ki has to go off at half time, it might even be worth taking off Joelinton for Muto and thats saying a lot. Hayden once again our MOTM so far.

    You happy that Bruce is playing this “attacking” football that you were talking about?

    We all need to be like 10 yards further up the pitch, to many players are just doing nothing and Almiron and Linton keep losing it, but then what do you expect they are both isolated and expected to make something from nothing.

    Three weeks apparently for the Gateshead boy. Can’t come quickly enough. Usual pathetic start to a new season . Give everyone five games start.

    Longstaff on for Ki too.

    Get back to the Hayden Longstaff 2 in midfield. Almiron left-wing, Muto (on for Shelvey) buzzing around and beyond Joelinton, Ritchie on the RW linking with Krafth and providing a threat cutting inside.

    The boycott will be in full force if this shite carries on! Norwich with the second worst defence in the Championship last season!
    Now this is where the manager earns his wages!
    C’mon !!!!!!

    It’s quite comical really, we now have to rely on;

    Almiron- who has yet to score a goal for us

    Joelinton- who has never played in the EPL before

    Carroll- who os injured and plays only 10 games a season due to injury.

    You couldn’t make this up. The logic or lack of it is alarming. Yet why am I not surprised. This club is a joke every year now. So sad.

    We would be as well playing both Longstaff brothers and Hayden at least you would get some pace and energy in the middle did Shelvey or Ki actually win a tackle all that half?

    For the money we should have signed Martinez from Atalanta hes still quite young and him and Almiron would have been able to click right away

    Having a three man midfield instead on three man front line has not improved our ability to control the midfield. Only Hayden has been really good.

    And our attack is toothless. Joelinton is too isolated as Almiron is operating anywhere he likes.

    Longstaff and Muto need to come on to replace Ki and Shelvey.

    Have been impressed with Norwich as I was against Liverpool. They seem to be able to pass to each other without any difficulty unlike our lot. They get their players into the penalty area very quickly unlike our lot. There centreforward looks very good. Won’t be surprised if he scores again.

    Our only hope is that Norwich let in lots of goals in the Championship.

    Norwich 1 touch pass and move is a joy to watch.

    And this is the worst I’ve ever seen us play. Shelvey has a pass accuracy of 55% today. Just wtf.

    We’ve got no hope of staying up under these absolute imbeciles.. cashlie, charmless and cabbage patch Bruce. So so sad… Enough to bring a tear to the eye. And to the blog members that think we’re better off without Rafa… Wake Up FFS.

    Norwich are not looking like one of the 3 teams that have to be worse than us.

    I think were going to get sick of Steve’s miserable gob in post match; I am going to play Brucie Bingo; I fancy”loss” or “Unlucky” as the word used most often during the season.

    Odd how Ashley always goes for shittiest of British managers
    Not a good one, just a cheap one. And the media says what a good owner he is
    The same media bastards who wouldn’t want Ashley and his “English managers” anywhere near THEIR club

    Ritchie’s crossing is sooooo overrated! Again he fails to beat the first man from a set piece. So frustrating.
