    What has happened to Dalot? Is he going to get more playing time?

    Gonna be interesting when people have to switch from pretending they're over the moon with championship players to panicking we have no quality.

    We need 3 fullbacks next season, just got to do some rotation.

    Aarons looks like something special btw, hope we are in for him, miles better then O'Connor and TFM. Never seen Norwich play though.

    Nailed on to be a class player he's more promising than any fullbacks in our youth ranks.

    The delusion on here is hilarious some will turn their nose up at the likes of De Ligt to develop the old guard like Paddy McNair, Blackett etc. Aside Gomes and Greenwood the jury is out with all the other youth prospects, look what happen to Gribbin hero to zero within two years.

    Based on the showreel he could be a find - young, rapid, brave, comfortable with the ball at his feet. Get him looked at properly and get it done FFS. Forget City, Dippers and the European elite, we have to outrun Spurs, Arsenal, Everton and Wolves first.

    Based on what I read here about Gribbin he was nailed on to be the next Giggs or some shit

    I'd completely scrap Dalot to have this guy as well.

    Yeah, Aarons is a completely different profile of fullback compared to AWB. We could really do with both and we can finally replace all Valencia, Young and Darmian.

    If we did that we would need to do more than that, Dalot is done too.

    While I would love that, it will never happen. We spend 20 Mill on Dalot, no way are we buying AWB for 50 (at least) and Aarons for 20-30 mill because that's 100 million spend on three young FBs who are still inconsistent. It's either Aarons or AWB and I hope it's the former

    I've just never seen it with Dalot if I'm honest. But the club will waste 5 or so years on him.

    With Max Aarons you can definitely see the talent.

    I’m not in total disagreement with this tbh. Any faith I have is largely blind and based on all the lovely things his school teachers said about him when he signed. Every half positive thing I’ve turned into evidence of him being ‘the best young right back in the world’, and the things that are less impressive I’ve just attached to the usual ‘young, new country, new league’ etc. Based on what I’ve seen with my own eyes, he hasn’t looked a nailed on top right back by any stretch. From the very first time I saw him I posted that I felt he was too slow, and his lack of athleticism is still a concern for me.

    That said, I am still hopeful, but almost solely on the basis of all the lovely things that were said about him when he joined us. You have to think there’s more to come.

    Would be amazing to sign the next big things in the Prem before they actually become the next big things for a fecking change. James and Aarons would be a good start.

    Great post.

    Anything over 40m is overpriced for AWB in my opinion, we shouldn't allow clubs to take us to the cleaners for anything but the best of the best (I'm thinking the likes of De Ligt here).

    Aarons / Dalot with Laird possibly coming through over the next couple of years sounds like a dream.

    Except Aarons/Dalot can't defend and so we will continue to ship goals at a stupid rate. Dalot actually can't do anything based on the evidence of last season so in fact this is more of a nightmare than a dream. AWB is already better than Walker and Walker cost 50 million 2 years ago, thinking we can get him for 40 million is asinine.

    Fair point, we definitely wouldn't be as solid with either of those two in place of an AWB type, from a purely defensive point of view.

    The point which I think the poster I quoted earlier on made very well would be, is that what we should be looking for at full back? I don't think so.

    Shaw is a great defender, Lindelof has improved immensely last season (although im still unsure long term). I'd say a solid CB & DM would leave us looking much improved defensively, with an Aarons / Dalot / Meunier type there on the right to provide balance.

    But hey, if it means I don't have to watch Young impersonating a footballer anymore I'd chip in for AWB myself at this point.

    I don’t understand this. We have so much young talent coming through already. We should be signing more experienced players.

    These are the kind of players we should be targeting. I like him a lot. Although different types of fullbacks, he would be a good back up option to Wan-Bissaka. Fantastic going forward.

    Why do you want Aarons? I'm curious, don't know hardly anything about him.

    And why would Aarons want to join Crystal Palace? I could definitely see Norwich finishing ahead of Crystal Palace next season. And you would think Spurs would also be interested in Aarons with Trippier possibly leaving.

    From the little I've seen of him, he looks to have great technique and also looks very good going forward. AWB while defensively superior, lacks the technical ability and attacking prowess required by a modern FB. AWB reminds me of a better defensive version of Valencia playing at RB, whereas Aarons looks like a technically good CM playing at RB. Not to mention the cost

    Championship young player of the year at age 19 years old. Looks to have great technical ability for a RB and I prefer attacking fullbacks. This is my preferred target of young players rather than James who is more of a punt. When people cite Dele Alli or James Madison, people forget that Alli was young player of the year at age 18. James Maddison was part of the team of the season. Max Aarons looks more similar to Alli than a Daniel James. That's also why I was in favor of getting Ryan Sessegnon, who was player of the season at age 17. He had a down season at age 18 and people have now written him off.

    I'm all for buying young talent, so long as they're big talents at a very young age. I'm also a big fan of the English generation born in 2000-2001.

    We've only signed one player thus far. It don't matter where they come from. Providing it's proper scouting and not being cheap to paper over cracks. We need numbers at this point but it's also how we manage these players.

    In my opinion, he'd be a better all-round buy than AWB, for a lot less of a fee. He was brilliant for us this season. He is great at defending and reads the game excellently. Because of his blistering pace, noboby can get past him with speed. Offensively he is superb, linking up play with the forwards and he has great ball control and delivery. His only weakness is headers, he's not that tall! If you go on YouTube there's a decent video of his abilities. We're desperatley hoping that he stays with us next season!

    Either way Let’s hope our scouts and management can start getting more hits than misses on the board asap. We really need things to pick up in that respect. He looks a really tidy player. Question, Would laird be able to do what he’s just done in the championship? I’m not sure Dalot is going to be the answer either. This is the thing when you buy potential, it needs competition either way.

    We can shift Dalot to Left side and still go for both AWB/Aarons as we need to replace Ashley Young too.

    2 out of AWB/Aarons/Cancelo/Semedo/Sandro would fix our RB/LB problems

    Norwich fan here, Max Aaron’s is a star in the making no doubt but truth is, untill he’s proved it, even Norwich fans can’t be sure he will take to the premier league.
    What I am sure of is he, as much as any other player I’ve ever seen in the championship has the potential ability and mentality to go to whatever level he chooses.
    Frankly the composure, maturity and skill shown in his first ever professional season was nothing short of a joke.
    Is he ready for a united team that don’t have the time/patience other clubs have? I’m not sure but I believe he’s a name many top clubs will want in the near future

    From ‘Sky Sport News understands that United are interested’, you conclude that we are targeting him and it’s ‘apparent’ that he is our second choice for RB?

    It’s a rumour. Ie an internet fairy tale. You don’t know who United are targeting, nor do I.
