    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.
