    Strangely, I think we might have some joy with that line up Would have a few nightmares about Reach at right wing back, he wasn’t much good at left wing back Having said that, didn’t he play right wing back a few times for Preston?

    Not sure he has the options to change things, or at least the things that need changing. The back five is fine, but what other midfield options do we have Perhaps Lazaar instead of Reach? Do we leave Bannan out, if so who replaces him? Aarons should come in for Boyd, but then who replaces Forestieri? Aarons and Lazaar wide, will at least have the pace to match Swansea

    It’s a long way to anywhere Spent all last summer up there, and I know Norfolk well, and the proximity to the coast is a bonus The choice for me is, city life in Norwich, or a more rural retreat. I’m torn

    Nice part of the world, I’m contemplating the move myself

    When we’re wanting to change the dynamic, I’m a bit uneasy about signing players as back up. We’ve seen the folly of that these last couple of seasons If we are signing half a dozen players, they all have to be starters as far as I’m concerned. We have key elements of the side that are missing, that has to be addressed. If the existing players start to deliver and keep the new guys out, then so be it. Nobody knows exactly what constraints we’ll be under come the summer, so whether or not we can sign Hector, I don’t know Maybe we can sacrifice one of our better players to enable us to bring him in

    A great day out, were you living down there at that point?

    Yeah 2001, was chatting about that with a couple of Norwich mates who rembered us singing it for practically the whole game They had no idea what we were singing though

    Fletcher and Nuhiu are not mobile enough, can’t run in behind, and don’t score enough goals. Joao is probably the nearest we have to that type of forward, but as we saw on Saturday, he isn’t strong enough for the role. This will be the big challenge this summer for Bruce, how to attract a player like that, probably on loan

    Out of Contracts

    Yes, this is what I’ve been cautioning against. Half a dozen at the most, and must be targeted

    There is an issue with all of this, if we use say, Onomah as the box to box man, starting from a position alongside Hutch, will we have enough goals in us. In that 4-2-3-1 system, with Bannan on the left, and Reach on the right, leaving, presumably Forestieri as the man in the middle. We would definitely need the lone frontman to not only be more mobile than Fletcher, but more prolific as well. Think we’d be looking at an Abraham or a Hernandez style lone striker

    Hutchinson has to play for me, he’s the anchor role If Reach isn’t to be trusted in the box to box role, because he’s maybe too weak, then I’d suggest Onomah That’s the role Bruce wanted him to play at Villa.

    Looking ahead, if most of the U23s are leaving, and looking at those due to graduate from the U18s, we will have a few places that we will have to fill from outside the club Expect a few trialists in these forthcoming development games

    Bannan’s strength is his ball retention, and his passing. Defensive duties, or getting into the opponents box, those are not his strong points So what does he need around him for him to thrive? Previously, under Carlos, he had Hutchinson sitting, and Lee running beyond. Do we not potentially have that now with Reach doing the box to box stuff? He has the energy to do it, and he gets goals, but somehow it feels wrong. We also had Wallace tucking in, playing narrow, and it looks like Bruce is trying to get Boyd doing the same. Not sure that it’s my idea of the way forward, but if that’s how Bruce wants to play, what do we need to make it work

    Think Dawodu is the nearest to a breakthrough, but there are plenty showing promise for the U18s Think Rice, the captain has already been in and around the first team scene. He’s another left footed centre back

    One further point regarding Bannan, it doesn’t necessarily help his game that the options further ahead, are often too static With more movement up front, we may see a different Bannan. Just a thought
