Liverpool V. Norwich | Stats Analysis

Following the first half, most Liverpool supporters would have expected all three points over the next 45 minutes. The performance up until half time had been great and it was unfortunate they only had a single goal to show for it. Norwich eventually came back to tie the game from a headed goal. So, what went wrong for Liverpool FC then? There isn’t much to discuss here unfortunately. Most who watched the game will come to a common conclusion. Liverpool …

Manchester United 2 Norwich 0 | Analysis

Injuries to Nemanja Vidic, Chris Smalling, Rio Ferdinand and the da Silva twins have robbed Manchester United the option of fielding a settled back four and in the last few games it has started to tell. The first half was probably one of United's poorest performances this season in the sense that there was no urgency in the play, the passing was sloppy and they looked vulnerable at the back. Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez' return in attack was a welcome …
Match Review Bolton 1 - 2 Norwich

Match Review Bolton 1 - 2 Norwich

It took five matches, but Norwich finally celebrated their first win of the season in the 2-1 victory over Bolton.  With goals from Anthony Pilkington and Bradley Johnson (and aided in part by an Ivan Klasnic red card before the half) the Canaries managed to stay on pace to avoid the drop with five points from the first five matches. Using the 4-5-1 formation that has become the standard tactics to start an away match, having been used in the most …
Norwich City Needs Wesley Hoolahan

Norwich City Needs Wesley Hoolahan

The Canaries have yet to enjoy a taste of victory in the English Premier League.  Handed a difficult opening set of fixtures, Norwich City has responded by showing a bit of inexperience at this level, conceding a penalty in each of the first three matches.  However, they've earned two draws and appear set with their tactics, playing their influential attacking midfielder, Wes Hoolahan in the center of the pitch pushed in behind the strikers.  Without Hoolahan in the lineup they've …
Shots On Target | New boys must improve

Shots On Target | New boys must improve

This weekend Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers spoke about he felt goals would come for his newly-promoted side, having created plenty of chances against Sunderland in a 0-0 draw. Whilst they created a number of good chances, it’s hugely important to convert these into shots on target, something none of the promoted teams have done particularly well so far this season: Ignoring the small sample sizes and disregard for opposition strength, all three teams – but most notably QPR – have …

Norwich City vs Stoke City | Report

After a second draw in two games for both teams in the league this season, Norwich stand one place above Stoke in the table.  What do you mean, that means nothing at this point in the season?! Wolves are quite obviously favourites to win the league you know? In a match that went to ‘Fergie’ time, were Stoke their usual tight fisted self’s? Or did they open up in the face of seemingly inferior opponents? Carrow Road, Norwich – Attendance …

Stoke vs Norwich | Error, no stats available

There are no stats for Norwich, up until last weekend. It’s been that long since they graced the EPL, yet it doesn’t feel like yesterday I was enjoying some Darren Huckerby on Match of the Day. After an opening weekend draw at Wigan, and some exceptional performances in the Championship last season, Norwich look to be more the capable of mounting a challenge to stay up this season. Stoke continue their season after two good results this past week, a …
