Well he's played 3 games now and I'm not entirely sure he's had as much as a shot on goal, the penalty aside.

I'm not saying Norris is shit, by any means.

As much as Newton's distribution and decision making was poor, his defensive work and his ability to win headers was excellent. I saw a lot of stuff from Newton that aggravated me, but I also saw a lot that impressed me.

With Norris, you cut out a lot of the mistakes and poor possession play. His distribution is definitely better, but I dont think he wins as many headers and he isn't as fast as Newton so isn't as good at rushing opponents.

I'm not saying Norris is worse, I just don't think he is a substantial upgrade. I think they are much of a muchness, but of course, time will tell.

P.S. I'm prepared to be wrong about this. It doesn't help that we have resorted to the crap long ball again so Norris could be suffering from our regression in play. He also needs more time in the team before making a full assessment. Newton has had a decent amount of time and not produced the goods, so I'm glad we are trying something else, but I'm just saying I'm not overly impressed.
