Norwich prediction

Away from league action tonight as we take on Norwich City (and confident former player Lee Croft) in the Carling Cup - a game which I expect us to comfortably progress in.

Whilst not quite the wholesale changes rung by Eriksson in the Bristol City victory, there will be some shuffling of the side with Joe Hart, the 'struggling' Rolando Bianchi (and we see why he has remained on the bench) and perhaps most surprisingly Georgios Samaras expected to start - with Eriksson saying this of Samaras:

"It would be a mistake to forget about Samaras," warned the
Blues boss. "He is mentally very strong and he may be saying to himself `I will
show that stupid Swede!'"I have been impressed with him in training. It would
have been easy for him to let his head go down in the time when he has not been
playing but it hasn't and he has got better and better in training."

The game may also see Nedum Onouha, Sun-Jihai and Michael Ball see more action than of late, but this is a game Eriksson well knows presents a reasonable chance of a gateway to Europe, not to mention a trophy and he will not tinker too much as Norwich could be capable of giving us a fright.

Should be a comfortable evening for those in attendance as a 2-0 win should safely see us through.

vote it up!
