That looks as good as we can get right now. It should be an open game and Cantwell, for them, has been carrying a hip injury, so I hope he gets a bit of a buffeting early on.

Like the team but I must admit theirs looks a bit tasty, too. Should be a good game.

No holding midfielder and I bet Forss is fuming, what else can he do?

I still think wd have enough to win this.

I thought it was a 7pm KO.

I prefer Forss up front, though! ;)

Norwich will play with two high in midfield, so I think we'll play two deeper and break out wide when we can.

'slow
The moans about 3 at the back were fair so the same can apply to asking for 2 upfront. Toney is still the #1 forward with our preferred formation

Norwich aren't exactly a pressing team so hopefully Jensen will get space to dictate the game. They will be thinking the same about Buendia.

What has Forss got to do

Be a winger or be better than Toney. Why anyone expected him to start today I don't know. We looked a mess on Saturday switching to a formation we have had in the locker for more than a year yet we should move to a 4-4-2 off the back of one defeat with effectively one session available to train it?.

I would have put Forss in for Bryan. Cant fathom why Bryan justifies keeping the shirt. Still that option is on the bench. I hope Bryan rewards the faith in him.

Bryan's a more creative player. Forss is your man if he has the ball within sight of goal. If we're going to play 433, it's unlikely Frank will play both unless we're chasing a game. I do still think a 442 with both of them in is worth ago against the dour, pressing sides, but don't expect Norwich to play like that.

I think this side is the right pick to beat Norwich. Mind you, I though the set up v. Stoke would keep it tight, so what do I know!

Surprised Janelt is not playing, no DM seems risky

Would assume it's a fitness thing, he's still getting used to the Championship and we'll likely need him more against Luton's pressing Saturday. I'd have liked him to start but can understand why he's not tonight.

Let’s hope if Jensen gets overwhelmed TF will react quickly and not pontificate until we’re 2 nil down until he changes something

I worry when Jensen and Marcondes play together. They both have had good games recently but not when playing together. There isnt an obvious alternative, but Janelt is close
Get what you are saying, I am little nervous also. The only thing I can think of is that at this stage Janault cannot play 3 full games in 6 days. Expect to see him on after 65 or 70 minutes.

Pretty sure I just saw Jasson walk out to the stands, not limping - hopefully back soon!

I worry about the wisdom of starting with Jensen and Marcondes, but hope my fears are unjustified.

Red button picture quality is v poor
Yes because they are squeezing lots of matches into the same frequency so they compress each match to fit it in.
