I’d get Jedinak back and rolling sub him for penalties

Unpopular opinion but I actually think rolling subs should be  a "thing" in Football.

Don't think there should be a limit on subs either.

2. Half is where the game begins for us.

What a game! Very entertaining! We should have 4 or 5 really. Need that third to kill it off now.

Nakamba our best player imo.

Now it all depends on whether we can carry what were were doing into the second half, that is crucial with some defensive tightening and we will win.

I wonder if There manager will match us on same formation as last week's game, if so we should throw more men forward and just go for it.

I'd like to see benches with a keeper and three subs and only two allowed in a match. It'd help even up the advantage of teams in the top four having 61 world class players in the squad.

Second Half beckons, what way will we mess this up do you think? My money is certainly on an own goal in extra time.

We look as fragile as Norwich at times and I still think this is far from over but, I'm eating humble pie at the moment because of Wes. I quite like the taste too!!

I think the key for us is not trying to defend the 2-0 lead.

We need to go out and play as if it's nil-nil - I think we can win the second half if we do that. 

If we try and defend and be 'sensible' I think we'll be in trouble.

Pointing out the obvious here but next goal crucial, we score then it's wrapped up. If Norwich do then I worry the players will crumble again. 

What about if there isn't a next goal ?

@Vive_La_Villa

Admit it already. Our defending is non existing.

Attacking wise we look great, but holy s*** will we concede a s***load of goals this season.

But i'm over the moon by the result so far.

Anyone else waiting for Norwich to pull one back and then the panic setting in?

We are far too loose in our marking. Need to watch for the runners, and don’t give too much space to players on the edge of our box. Better teams than Norwich won’t miss all of those shooting chances we give. El Ghazi still looks a little lazy tracking back for me.

Yep from the moment they score it will be backs against the wall, zero attacking and an inevitable equiliser to follow.

Spot on - there are goals at both ends in this game.

Norwich have spotted a weakness with Guilbert IMO - they draw him out and then play the ball in behind. Has happened several times now.

Hope Smith tells them absoloutly no sitting back for half hour, find a way to move it forward.

He doesn't need to tell them. They've learnt their lesson the hard way.
