    Krul at fault, but made a good save to amend

    Poor pass by Hanley to be fair, took too many touches.

    I like Handley but he always has one or two cock ups per game , we got away with one today

    Think we were slightly the better team that half, Wolves only big chance came from a Hanley/Krul error.

    Probably correct, but Krul does flap about with the ball at his feet.

    I thought that was classic Norwich - we looked excellent at times and probably deserved a goal, but… still managed to gift the opposition one gilt edged chance (Hanley) and one big chance (Gilmour), the latter cut off by some excellent Williams and Gibson tracking back and the former rescued by Wolves being surprised to be gifted such ridiculous chances.

    Stats NCFC 7 shots, 2 on target Wolves 3 shots, 1 on target seems to suggest that we have had a more of the game in an attacking sense. Normann off gives cause for concern. Incidentally, Tuesday match away to NUFC is on Amazon Prime video

    Any idea what the Normann injury was about?

    I am quite enjoying this, other than the odd clanger dropped in defence

    It looks like we are actually trying

    Shame Villa are winning, but I don't think they will be in the relegation fight, now.

    I am getting to be very nervous with the lack of defensive ability of Aarons. He is too often caught too far upfield when opponents attack. Offensively he is excellent but I have worries about his defensive contribution. Maybe why he is still with us.

    I'd imagine it is the on-going pelvic ligament injury that caused his withdrawal from the Norway squad last month and which has been hampering him for most of the season.

    Yeah agree, I think the bottom seven are probably destined not to climb much, maybe Brighton or Palace fall away a bit from here.

    Thanks, that makes sense. It would be good to rest him if Rupp keeps performing

    If Aarons goes in January, could the young Irish lad Omobamidele make a suitable replacement? He seems to have more defensive attributes than Aarons.

    Rashica my 1st half MOM. Really beginning to look like the player we were told we'd bought.

    Or maybe Sam Byram, might be fit by then?

    We don’t seem to have much of a goal threat in the front three other than Pukki. As money is likely to be tight in January (unless there is a sale) I can’t see things improving.
