While events in the real world didn’t go as planned, our 3-2 win over Wolves in the virtual world of the Football Manager Parallel Championship gave ‘manager’ Martin Emerson’s Canaries a flying start to the season (am I taking this too seriously..?).
And, in true parallel fashion, it’s Watford up next.
So… over to you again folks. As before, we’d love to hear you thoughts on who you think should comprise Neil Adams’ starting XI and the formation in which they should line up.
The team selected last week was only one player different from Adams’ actual starting line-up – Steven Whittaker was replaced at right-back by Russell Martin, with Ryan Bennett slotting in alongside Michael Turner at centre-back – although the MFW readers opted for a 4-2-3-1 as opposed to the 4-4-2 with the narrow midfield diamond.
But with Kyle Lafferty’s cameo catching the eye, will – or perhaps should – the Irishman be let loose on Beppe Sannino’s high-flyers?
And should Adams persist with the Martin/Turner combo? Or has Ryan Bennett done more than enough to earn a shot?
One player we can leave out of the equation is Anthony Pilkington who, following his apparent spat with Adams, now appears to be heading to Cardiff; a £1million fee being bandied around in the Welsh press.
So, please let us have your team. As ever, we welcome your thoughts folks…
