    One of those goals that look simple enough but he knew exactly where to go, and made sure he put space between himself and the defenders. Decisive finish. Nice to see him score early in the campaign.

    I've said it before about Idah - given a bit of time and some chances at any level he's gone to and He. Just. Scores.

    I went to Stearman’s wiki to look that up and looks like someone has entered this on his bio — lovely.

    “He is very popular amongst Norwich City fans due to his extremely generous "defending" each time he faces the club.”

    Interesting FAI pursued him to point of him getting passport and never got a call up. That said, centre half usually the last position we’re in need of bolstering.

    Not great to be hearing about a young lad:

    "Adam will be a bit in the spotlight and I'm delighted for him," he said.

    "I'm allowed to tell you a secret, I had a proper outburst with Adam Idah during this week because I didn't have the feeling he was focused on us.

    Not focused on Norwich it suggests, so what or which club shifted his focus ? Or maybe he was reliving his international bow a bit too much. Or maybe a coke n hookers binge, could be anything couldn't it ?

    Bit of context in the full story. Seems to suggest he was just a bit distracted after being away on international duty. Probably just a young lad who was still had his head in the clouds after achieving such a massive ambition at a very young age.

    Suggestions yes, nothing concrete, a young lad getting carried away with himself its a bit premature, even stranger that his manager has to come out to the media and mention it.

    Anyway, he lives and he learns. Onwards and upwards

    Au Contraire, his manager coming out publicly about it could well be a bit of a kick up the hole to Idah.

    True, thats another way of looking at it, but you'd think the start of a new footballing week he wouldnt need to bring it up again - which is what he has done.

    Sounds like Idah impressed with his contribution off the bench. A lot of fans calling for his inclusion next week citing his obvious physicality, but also his hunger and adaptability, which is encouraging.

    That makes for great reading in many ways but I see the point highlighted over and over that their formation only permits on centre forward. A real pity. He definitely can play wide forward from what I've seen of him but they have options there too.

    Hopefully I'm not being paranoid but Farke does seem to love reining Adam in. I mean, as well games he gave a frankly rubbish Drmic at the end of last season, he went and signed Jordan Hugill this season- so he has three centre forwards.

    Played off the left in Norwich's familiar 4-2-3-1. Seemed to do okay going by press reports.

    Gave away a penalty which was missed, clumsy more than anything.

    Idah drops back down to the bench for tonight. I was hoping he would hit the ground running in the Championship this year but Norwich have kept most of their attackers from last season. I think if he is going to develop into a top class striker Id like to see him as 1st name on teamsheet by end of season

    Hes got speed and strength, the jurys out whether he has the other side to his game, but he definitely improved from the u19 to the u21s (his touch got much better)so hopefully he can again improve.

    1st name on the teamsheet is a bit much, given some of the players at Norwich, but I'd like to see him starting, and by starting that would mean he is holding his own, so you'd consider 10 goals from the season to be a fair return. I'd take that now with both hands but i dont think hes the answer to what we desperately need from what i have seen of him.

    Fair enough 1st name on team sheet might be a lot but I'd like to see him be picked regularly. If u are in the team as young as he is the hope is that you develop into a top class player. Pukki is still better than him right now. 10 goals would be a good target

    He got an assist tonight. Didn’t know much about it, but he cut inside nicely and Vrancic took it off his toe before he could shoot.

    Still a teenager, let's not forget. He's a bit unpolished, but most the raw essentials are there.
