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.

    • Crazy, you must be the odd one out on the forum....    most of us don't need a skinful
    • Boro flashback 26th October 1994 Our final season at Ayresome Park when Robbo was driving us towards promotion to the PL on this day we travelled to Villa Park for a league cup 3rd round fixture, after disposing of Scarborough 8-2 over two legs with both games finishing 4-1 in the previous round we travelled to Villa Park full of confidence to spring a suprise against  a Villa side who were struggling at home with only one home win to date 19,254 were at the game to see a future Boro player, Andy Townsend, score the only goal of the game in the 30th minute as Boro huffed & puffed but fell short of causing an upset against our PL opponents & our league cup adventure dispearered for another season   
    • It’s come to my attention that I can spout *** after a Sunday evening skin full. It’s not even interesting ***. Apologies.
    • I was of that opinion for a while, but I shifted when I realised all ps4 games will be compatible with ps5 as well as getting a significant boost for many. So to me it makes sense to play the best possible version of these games now rather than wait a year or two to try to get the ps5 for 50 quid cheaper. If there was no backwards compatibility I probably would have waited.
