The Stock Check

The Stock Check – Saturday – Part Two

Anthony Pilkington earns the points for Norwich with a superb headed effort extending his side’s unbeaten run to five. Robin Van Persie fails to score or assist for the first time as a starter for United, with the Canaries resilient defence proving too good for the most prolific attack in the Premier League:

Going Up

Norwich Defence
The Canaries came into this evening’s game having conceded a single goal in their previous four Gameweeks but the visit of United was considered a real test of their resolve. A 1-0 win continued their upturn in resilience as Chris Hughton’s influence starts to have a real effect – they now have five clean sheets this term, three more than this evening’s beaten opponents.

Anthony Pilkington
His first goal of the campaign was enough to produce the points for the hosts. Norwich have not tasted defeat since a 4-1 battering at Chelsea in Gameweek 7 and while they may not score many – netting more than once on a single occasion so far – Hughton’s side concede even less; the opposite of last season’s form under former boss Paul Lambert.

Going Down

United Defence
David De Gea was given the day off after a trip to the dentist caused problems but Anders Lindegaard could do little about Pilkington’s excellent headed winner. United have now conceded first in eight of their 12 matches and for once, their attack was unable to bail them out.

United Attack
Tonsillitis kept Wayne Rooney out of the reckoning and with Javier Hernandez selected to start, Robin Van Persie dropped a little deeper. Having racked up 29 goals in the previous 10, with at least two goals per game over that run, the visitors were snuffed out for the first time since Gameweek 1. Three favourable fixtures in the next four look set to offer Van Persie a chance to rectify tonight’s blip – this was the first time he has failed to produce a goal or assist when starting a league game for United.

              So I have 2 frees but with fella out and baines easy fixture I think my best move is to get rid of davies for Cuellar in preparation for double as my only transfer this week. Then next week I can get in Enrique for baines and fella for peanut.

              I just can not see what else I can do at this stage. Mata or hazard? Walcott or carzola? I don’t think either is worth a transfer. Thoughts?

              Begovic, McCartney
              Baines, rafael, shawx, gorrks, davies
              Hazard, pienaar, michu, cazola, sterling
              Rvp, tevez, berbatov

                Hmm. I could do Baines to Cuellar and Pienaar to Silva and have 0.2 left over. If the prices stayed the same until next week maybe a good option. That would mean I could only do one transfer this week to keep my 2 FT active. I am not doing it before the Norwich game

                      I guess the question then is. What will Everton do against Norwich?

                                I like it. Personally would have had a 4th big midfielder but your frontline is top notch and should make up for it

                                    Very good. Would probably go w/ Puncheon to Kacanicklic and Teves to Suarez. (now that Silva is back and in flames)

                                                                            If Evans does make it this week, will remove Baines instead.

Then next week I can get in Enrique for baines and fella for peanut.

Mata or hazard? Walcott or carzola? I don’t think either is worth a transfer. Thoughts?
