Kei Kamara: Not Equipped to Play Lone Role for Norwich City

I like Kei Kamara a lot and certainly he has added something different from an attacking sense. However, that’s not to say that Kamara is the best man to lead the Norwich City attack. Obviously, a number of fans don’t think a single striker is the right approach anyway.

There is certainly a school of thought that fortune favors the brave. However, the issue here is not so much a matter of tactics, but more a case of which players are best equipped to start games. As I mentioned last week, Kamara is still learning about English football. He deserves to be playing either with a strike partner or used as an impact player.

The situation with Grant Holt is a little bit strange, but even if Chris Hughton doesn’t want to start him he does have other options. Luciano Becchio was signed in January, but hasn’t been given a big opportunity to impress. Simeon Jackson, of course, is still an option and there are a number of impressive youth players.

Hughton must make the best decisions for the team to get them over the line. It’s too early to be thinking about the summer holidays or preparations for next season. Now is the time for the best team to be used.

I honestly think that Kamara should not be the one to leads the attack and the Canaries have better options. Of course, the obvious one is Holt. However, all doesn’t look to be well with him, but he can hold the ball up and is a goal-scorer.

It will be interesting to see if Hughton has a change of heart, but I’m nervous that the current tactic will only allow the Canaries to crawl to safety. That approach is dangerous enough and I could see the worst thing happen.
