I thought he did the injury prior to going for the header. I thought you could see him limping just before before he went up for the header and then avoided landing on the foot
That is what I saw too, he was injured before the header.

The worry about this is it will make Norgaard a target in the same way Judge was. Take him out and we surrender.. need to find a way of playing without him, whether that’s going to a back three or finding someone else to fill the role to a similar level.
The only difference with that example was we actually improved after Judge got injured

I think we all know how important Norgaard is. Perhaps we were asking too much of him? It’s all my fault.:banghead:
A lot don't. They kept saying we have lots of players who can play his role. Saying Jensen and marcondes can play his role do me a favour.

Got to be honest, I've not seen nor heard anyone suggest Jensen or Marcondes can play the Norgaard role.

No-one's said that as far as I'm aware? That's why we've brought in this Janelt kid.. Norgaard's absolute quality, you could see that from his first friendly appearance last year.

Marcondes “tackles won“ statistics gives him a chance, but his passing isnt good enough. And he doesn’t read the game.
In training worth trying Josh, he is young but reads the game, passes well and has vision.
Fosu is a possible candidate too but I havent seen enough of him to judge

Josh would be a waste and I don't think he's got the discipline. Fosu is a no-no, yes he had a good game at RB the other day but he's been v inconsistent. We've brought Janelt in for just this job..

Yup we have, but it has also been said Janelt will need some time to adapt. Which we may not have.

He is a defensive midfielder I'm sure he will be second choice to play there and will be able to do a job or we wouldn't have signed him. I'm sure it will take less time to adapt from a different football culture in Germany (let's face it, not that different) than it will for any of the other players to a completely new and unfamiliar position they're not suited to.

I'm not sure about Janet. Operates better with John alongside. Bit of a team.

Are you saying Fosu a candidate to play DM? A player who is primarily a winger?

No I was surprised how well he played in his first attempt at RB, and was struggling to find other candidates among our squad for DM. I did say I hadnt seen enough of him to judge.
I originally thought HD might be best suited, but was told that was tried and didnt work in training.

If you go to the Ben Watson thread you will see plenty that said it. I and others disagreed and said we need another ball winner like norgaard. The club obviously agreed and signed Janelt like you said.

I think we'd all feel a lot happier (maybe, if positive news) when we find out the extent of the injury

I think a winger playing full back is not to big an adjustment, particularly if you have pace like Fosu. Playing DM is a totally different kettle of fish.

Completely. Never mind the specific intricacies of Christian's role, just the switch from wide to central, where you suddenly need 360 degree vision, is massive.

Ah but you forget, those players who aren't regularly in the first team are 10 times better than those who start so sure he can adapt quickly!! :sorted:

Do we know what's up with the lad yet?
My bet is we won't hear anything concrete over the international break. Be it recovery or not, it's something to keep Coventry guessing about for the next game.

While we don’t have another player with Norgaard s defensive abilities, the coaches could get a tune out of the others. They just were not ready for it on Sunday. Norgaard’s injury was no excuse for what I saw. Never would be. They are centred too much on this player. That makes him an obvious target, especially as he is so competitive. Preston, though were something else, not dirty really.

I think this is something we've missed from Sunday's inquest. Preston were excellent all over the pitch, they were posting 9s and 10s whilst we put up 4s and 5s. However, in the main we coped with them pretty well in the first half, and actually started the second on the front foot. Giving away that soft goal so early in the second did for us as I think if we'd hung on for 15/20 mins (like we did against Fulham) then they'd have run out of steam and we'd have probably ended up winning by 3..

I was chuffed with the first half, thinking the double bluff tactics of give up possession, sit back, and counter, were yet another master stroke by Thomas. You talk about starting the second half on the front foot. We did. This change of tack suggested to me that Thomas was not happy with our performance first half. The perceived tactical masterclass had not been intentional at all. I wish it had, because if it had, we would probably have continued in the same vein as the first half, and might have run out 2/3-0 victors. Remember, Preston didn't really muster a meaningful shot on target in the first half. They bloody did in the second half though as we decided to venture forward and leave large holes (holes which might otherwise have been plugged by Christian Norgaard) for Preston to rush into and score at will. Thomas, I still trust in you, but I think I gave you credit you were not due, on Sunday! Unaccustomed naivety!

I'm not so sure. I think it was deliberate. We've set up like that for most of our games so far. Particularly at Birmingham and Millwall. Perhaps at HT he thought we could finish the game off and that they'd be tired so we went a bit more on the front foot. Once they got back into it, I don't think we were sure which style we were supposed to be playing and in the end did neither.

Neil MacFarlane said a couple of days ago that Mads will be out for a 'significant time'
That's a pity. I'm hoping the non international staff are having a few days off at the moment so maybe everything put on hold till next week.

Surely we'd have pulled the plug on Zamburek's loan if Norgaard's injury was significant? I'm not saying Zamburek can play the same role, but we'd be potentially short of numbers in midfield if neither of them is available for an extended period.

Yes, you're probably right, equally the same applies to Baptiste I'd imagine... We've seen the B team bring players in to cover for long term injuries so I'd imagine we'd do the same with the first team..

Can't see him being fit for this weekend. Even a bad sprain could keep you out for a few weeks. Thank God though it was before the international break otherwise he would have missed a chunk of games

Yep, hoping he comes back soon but he would have missed 3 or 4 games already without the International break. Need him back as quickly as possible but no point rushing him back and further aggravating the injury

That's what I reckon too unfortunately, especially considering how quickly he was withdrawn from the Denmark squad
