    Team to face Norwich?

    Thank god, a thread about football! The Rangers friendly angers me a little bit, can't see any benefit to our players at this stage of the season. The front 4 looked really good on Saturday, filling in for each other nicely. I would expect to see Carroll starting again though, and know disrespect to Norwich but it is a good chance to rotate the squad a bit. Bellamy deserves to get a start sooner rather than later.

    Johnson-----Carra......Agger..........Enrique

    • im with you aurelio.

      i think we now have enough in our squad to make changes for this type of match, and enough for players to come off the bench if it's not working out. i would go for

      ...........................Reina
      johnson.......Agger.....Skrtl........Aurelio
      ........................Lucas
      Kuyt.....................................Maxi
      ......................Henderson
      ............Bellamy.........Carrol

      Subs: Doni, Carra, Enrique, Gerrard, Downing, Adam, Suarez

      and i think that team should honestly beat norwich. Players getting little time on the pitch will have something to prove and should be well up for it! and look at that bench! (i would also be interested to see what henderson can do in the middle behind a front two as he showed some glimpses of quality further up the field against the mancs)

      • I don't think too many starters will be risked vs Rangers. The major names that I would not be surprised for that one would be Adam (a run out as a former Ranger), Glenda, Agger, Aurelio etc.

        Assuming everyone comes through healthy for Norwich, I think we do have the depth to make 2-3 changes, BUT as you said Hobs, these are the types of teams we've slipped up on, so this is a MUST 3 pointer at home,especially with a job @ Stoke again, followed by another winnable vs Brom.

        I thought the back line was as solid as a rock and will take some serious effort to get them out, and I think it's absolutley vital to get Carroll in the mix and firing because Suarez works his socks off every match and has ALOT of travelling to do for Uruguay all season in WC Qualifying.. Ultimately amongst the changes I would put out our most skilled, paciest players possible and try to put them away early and often

        --------------------Reina-------------------
        -Kelly -- Carra-- Skrtel-- Enrique-
        --------------Lucas--Adam-------------
        Hendo--------Gerrard-------Downing
        ------------------Carroll------------------

        Doni, Suarez, Agger, Johnson, Bellamy, Kuyt, Spearing
