Norwich City v Sunderland [CHAMPIONSHIP]

1 Name: 606 2017-08-13 13:27
Norwich City v Sunderland [13:30 BST]

Norwich forward Steven Naismith could make his first appearance of the season after completing a three-match ban for his red card at Leeds in April.

Alex Pritchard (ankle) is expected to be out for three months, while defender Timm Klose (leg) is also struggling.

Sunderland are set to welcome back captain Lee Cattermole and full-back Billy Jones, who were rested for their EFL Cup tie at Bury.

Bryan Oviedo, Josh Maja, Paddy McNair and Duncan Watmore are all ruled out.

Match facts

*The Canaries have lost just once in their 11 home league games against the Black Cats (W7 D3). However, that loss came in their most recent meeting with Sunderland.

*Indeed, the north-east club picked up all three points in April 2016, only their third league victory away to Norwich in 23 attempts.

*Since the start of last season, no player has provided more open play assists than Norwich's Wes Hoolahan (10, level with Sone Aluko and Tommy Smith).

*Sunderland have won only two of their last 22 league games (D5 L15), although both wins came on the road - 2-0 v Hull in May and 4-0 v Crystal Palace in February.

*The Canaries have lost only once in their last 12 home Championship matches, winning eight and drawing three.

*This will be Sunderland's first away game in the second tier since May 2007 where they beat Luton Town (5-0). Indeed, the Black Cats have won eight of their last 10 on the road in the Championship (D1 L1).

Norwich: Gunn; Martin (c), Zimmermann, Franke; Wildschut, Reed, Husband; Maddison, Naismith; Watkins; Jerome.

Subs:

Sunderland XI: Steele, Jones, Kone, Browning, Galloway, Honeyman, Cattermole, Ndong, McGeady, Grabban, Vaughan

Subs: Ruiter, O’Shea, Gibson, Asoro, Matthews, Khazri, Gooch

Because Norwich are supposed to be a fast, attacking team. Nobody expects Sunderland to be doing much, but Norwich have been pathetic so far.

You want to hear autism? I used to pretend to play football in my living room by myself. I would make up fantasy plays and run end to end and throw the ball to myself. I always would make this play where I would pretend I was Kevin Faulk of the Pats (I fucking hated that guy) and I would bobble a pass and pick it off as a jet player to win the game. Mfw that play never happened

I did this with soccer but pretended to be both the whole team and opposition team and simulate playing against myself. The most autistic part was I would adapt different personalities or styles depending on which player I was pretending to be at any given moment. Most interestingly I tended to play better was playing the role of a good player and would shoot more accurately, even more so than I would ever do normally.
I'd keep score against myself and even have tournaments to knock teams out so I'd have a chance to perform as new teams. It got a bit out of control when I started transferring players from one team to another and creating drama plotlines around teams suddenly getting sugar daddies or losing their star player and having to reflect that in my performance.

I would do this but with basketball and I would pretend it was my breakout game and I'd always end up with some really unrealistic statline like 80 points and 50 rebounds. I was a fookin legend

What would happen to that crooked institution, the NCAA, if they outlawed ALL full Athletic scholarships, and the gang bangers with speed had to go back to slangin' rock, and robbing to make a living?

No more point shaving scandals.
No more academic fraud.
No more recruitment scandals.
Less steroid abuse because no one is worried about losing their scholarship and trying to make it to the big time.
College rape drops in half.
No more disgusting displays of classless on field behavior.

Imagine seeing the game as it was meant to be played. By students who actually go to the school to learn, instead of a bunch of paid ringers who are only interested in their wallet and getting laid. What's it gonna take to get back to this? How many of you faggot degenerates would stop watching?
