Candidates for our next manager...

Recommended Posts

I don't know, Burnley went down on the back of 2 wins and a draw, largely going down as a result of an awful start to the season, but they weren't particularly poor in the second half of it.

Norwich are going down on the back of at least 8 defeats in a row, and at least 25 all season, often getting absolutely hammered, only getting worse as the season went on, the end result might be the same but I think the manner of their relegation will have a much bigger psychological impact.

Given they still have to play Burnley and Man City, I expect another 2 defeats and their final match of a season to be a complete demolition.

The short Summer break could also be a pivotal factor in not allowing enough time to shake off that defeatist mindset which will surely exist within the squad. A defeat to say Wycombe at Carrow Road on the opening day of the Championship is the sort of result that can do really serious damage to confidence and belief. Time will tell.

It's true. Norwich admittedly look better placed than most, but every single summer the bookies and fans think a relegated side will make mincemeat of the Championship and it rarely happens.

Norwich have been preparing themselves for relegation all season; they'll be fine. They came up, made bank & accepted they were going back down. Now they're really well prepared to go up and stay up.

The club can say that all they want.

A team getting hammered every week is going to be impacted and devoid of confidence, including the manager.

Their finances will be excellent, but I don't think they'll hit the ground running unless there's a high turnover of players.

They've not been trying to lose these games, they've been incapable of winning them.

i think that will depend on who they lose, both fullbacks, the young lad up top and Pukki could all be gone that's almost half of the first 11.

No way they'll be holding onto Buendia, Cantwell, Lewis, Aarons. They'll basically have a ton of money to spend on a pretty crap squad... not a guarantee of success as Stoke, Boro (and Villa kind of) can prove.

Farke is way more competent than Monk though so that's in their favour.

Would expect theHammers to throw money at Pukki

Is Pukki actually that good a signing for a PL club...? Norwich often bench him now and he's already 30. Hasn't scored in ages.

I reckon he might stay with them tbh.

Norwich will be fine next season. In terms of player turnover I think the vast majority of their squad will stay intact, would be a big blow to them to lose their younger talents, Cantwell, Aarons, Lewis and Godfrey. But they have over the last few years made a real effort to have a clear pathway from academy football to first team, so they'll undoubtedly have another crop of youngsters to fill the void. Stuart Webber is very adept at bringing players that excel at Championship level, so even if they do lose their better players, I expect them to pick up players that are very capable.
As others have said the biggest threat to that is whether Farke can motivate his players after losing week on week.

Bournemouth on the other hand could struggle. I read something that they had the 3rd highest "Wages to turnover" in the Premier League, think it was close to 85%. 

They are also over reliant on broadcasting income as their main income stream, again I think that sits at close to 90%. Which isn't uncommon, but when you take out the premier league income their turnover sits at just over £15 Million.

I really can't see FFP being implemented next season after the lack of action with City and the so far ineffectiveness of clamping down on Villa, Wednesday, Derby etc.

I can imagine next year they will waiver or even scrap FFP due to COVID19.

    • Fletcher.  I honestly think he is our best striker now.  He had a difficult start here, with fans on his back because of his price tag, but has persevered and developed despite all the inadequacies in our coaching set up.  I really like how he and Tav link up.  I am looking forward to seeing how he develops under a manager who knows how to coach players and inspire confidence in them.  
    • To be honest I find it difficult to pick a favourite out as we are at a stage where we have no consistently outstanding players though many are very capable in flashes...I like Johnson going forwards but he terrifies me near our penalty area...Fletch is improving all the time and with a partner that would pass to him, he could improve a lot more...Tav is beginning to show his potential ...but agree with Blanco, Saville very underrated and reminds me a lot of Mustoe...so probably one of those three depending on the game...."deep rums".?..I'll have one of those 
    • Friend also for sentimental reasons. I have a soft spot for Dijksteel  for reasons unbeknown to even myself and want him to do well. I really liked Ayala as I felt much more confident in our defence when he was a part of it but the way he departed left a bad taste. My favourite player growing up, despite my username, was actually Gianluca Festa. I like players who play in a way which shows that they care about this club as much as we fans do. Festa did that. There been more since him, George being one of them. His legs have gone but I know he gives a sh*t about this club just as much as the rest of us do.
    • Friend for sentimental reasons... I have a soft spot for Coulson as well.. I love those merauding deep rums he can make.. From wing back.. He can unfotunately not do it as a winger, yet... 
    • Gotta be Fletcher. Think he's very underrated by our fanbase and has worked really hard to improve his game after a difficult start to his career here.
