World News – GB – What Bristol City can expect from Norwich as Canaries think inside the box


Bristol City entertain Norwich as Sky kick off at lunchtime to bounce back from a horrific week of injury and loss news at Bournemouth

Alfie Mawson has had surgery, Steven Sessegnon has a hamstring injury, and Andi Weimann has ruptured his ACL All following news that Joe Williams and Liam Walsh will only be available after the international break

The Robins are therefore reduced to 19 first team members including three goalkeepers Unless there are additional injuries, the 18th matchday is now chosen

Norwich is starting to adjust to life back in the Championship after a lone season in the top flight They’ve won four, drawn two and lost two to make it into the top six, but mostly they are unbeaten in four, having won three on the spin until their 1-1 draw at Brentford on Tuesday night

The city has an identical record but a better goal difference, so sit a place above the Canaries in the last place for the play-offs

Norwich, owned by Delia Smith (and Michael Wynn-Jones), opted for a new recipe in summer 2017 by naming Daniel Farke

The 44-year-old has had a modest playing career as a center-forward in the lower regional divisions of German football, but that is during his six years as SV head coach Lippstadt that he caught the attention of Thomas Tuchel and Borussia Dortmund where he took charge of the Reserve (Dortmund II) in 2015

With Smith bringing in Huddersfield sporting director Stuart Webber towards the end of the 2016/17 season and Farke’s growing notoriety at his home in Germany, it was a case of ‘we’ll confess’ with Webber recruiting Farke over the summer, like his time with David Wagner at the Burrows

The ingredients of Webber’s player recruiting and Farke’s tactics and training took a season to blend in, but when they did, they reached perfection, first getting a promotion before winning the league title – the icing on the cake [Editor’s note: we’re going to stop it now]

As mentioned above, the decision to bring in Webber and then Farke gave Norwich an opportunity to tap into the Euro-German transfer market, choosing players who they believe could adapt to the championship for low fees

German football, in particular, has good fundamentals in terms of both physical and technical attributes, so it’s surprising that it’s only in the last few years that clubs have tapped into this market.

Despite the loss of Godfrey and Lewis, they retained most of the squad from last season (Emi Buendia, Max Aarons, Teemu Pukki, etc.), demonstrating their financial prudence last summer during their promotion

Farke’s Norwich play a nice passing style of football in a 4-2-3-1 formation in the main They’re exciting to watch, have their full-backs high and really push you back into your own third, and then you there maintain, looking for openings

Despite being a 4-2-3-1 on paper, the Canaries are very fluid in their movements However, Farke is more than happy to make changes depending on the condition Game

With Norwich trailing 1-0 in the final quarter of the game at Griffin Park, Farke brought in Jordan Hugill and Kenny McLean and moved up to 3-4-3 with the half-time sub Placheta transferred to the rear McLean wins the equalizer in the 87th minute

Norwich are really good at pressing the ball, they do it as a team making sure they don’t get played. It’s not frantic like Barnsley’s press, but very efficient

Here we see a handsome compact back four picking up three Brentford forwards Although Norwich full-backs like to go forward, they know when they need to stay strong too. A triangle of Norwich players ready to go is also seen. working as a team, triggered by Pukki

As Brentford moves from center-back to left-back, the three Norwich players press on the receiver but also cut the passing lane on the inside, forcing Brentford to back down Simple but effective, maintaining the triangle

Brentford made it through the lines (caused by a bad throw-in in the field), and we can see five Norwich players (circled) caught in front of the ball Brentford has a three-on-three situation

Norwich pays the ultimate price as Mbuemo jumps into the canal and crosses for Toney to stab at home for the night’s first goal Norwich never get back in shape after losing the ball

Like I said above Norwich are very fluid with their 4-2-3-1 but you’ll see a lot of their attacks form around a tight-knit ‘box’ of four players who can take complex passes, occupy more defenders than necessary and make room for the remaining players

In this streak, Vrancic pushed down the Brentford backline and with Pukki they cleverly occupy four Brentford defendersMax Aarons at top of picture is free if he can be traced Brentford’s two defensive midfielders pay attention to Cantwell and Buendia as Skipp brings the ball over the center line

True forms to come short and Skipp passes him Ethan Pinnock follows Vrancic but his clever flick keeps Buendia away and there is now a huge gap in the Brentford core

It’s so Norwich, so simple, but so well drilled too Buendia continues to see his shot flipped over the crossbar If Vrancic had rolled Pinnock inside, Pukki started to escape from the shoulder of his marker too

This type of play is seen all over the opponent’s half of the field, and once the Yellows are in your last third it is very difficult to get out

With Norwich 1-0 on the sidelines with just a few minutes to go, they signed up men ahead (six players in advanced position) But they don’t just throw him in the box where Hugill might find something, they keep their principles of passage

Norwich defender passes to the losing midfielder We start to see Norwich positioning four tight players, although it’s not quite a two-by-two box this time The ball is then fed into McLean

McLean manages to light the ball and we see Pukki ready to receive a pass after moving away from his marker However, McLean shoots, he gets a horrible deflection and beats the keeper to make the score 1-1 Norwich is fantastic to create chances in tight spaces

Norwich aim for the danger zone with their free kicks, with the runners knowing where delivery is expected

An outside swinger with his right foot is struck towards the penalty spot where Grant Hanley goes over the bar when he should have put his head on target

A right-footed swinger is hit near the penalty spot where Ben Gibson stands up but leaves his head wide

The city should be aware of the target and not allow the Norwich runners to step in front of them
