We're a yoyo club. We're just doing the 'walk the dog' trick at the minute...  

You have to remember that whatever Siliki is doing right now, he's playing under a manager that likes to completely bypass the midfield. Yesterday we resorted pretty much entirely to hoof ball. Sorry

Scott wasn't the Director of Football at Norwich, he was Head of Recruitment. His job was to identify good players at low prices who would improve the team. He did that successfully. He migh

I'm sure he can make simple passes otherwise he wouldn't have played international football or in the Champions league. Sometimes players just play really badly, none of us know whats going on behind the scenes at the moment either. 

Maybe Siliki will turn out to be a total flop I'm just saying that its a bit early to start panicking about the new head of recruitment when he hasn't even been in the job for a month yet.  

Yea I know you’re right. Think the anger is just starting to bubble. Was already so optimistic for the new season. Had a good clear out and some good signings. Then the Scott news which in my opinion is what we’ve needed for a while. Then the season starts and it just isn’t going well at all. I know it is early and league is still pretty tight so let’s see what happens over next few weeks

Is there much point in waiting for farke if he can’t really do it at a higher level. Yes he’d be an improvement on what we have and I wouldn’t be against it but equally I’d prefer us to look for potentially better options.

And tbf I don’t think Scott will want to just turn is into Norwich 2, he will want to put his own mark on things and prove he can do it alone rather than needing hand outs from his old boss.

To be fair to farke I really don’t think that Norwich squad is good enough for the premier league

Norwich sold their best player as well in the summer.

They have a model where it’s sustainable business going up and down the league. 

it’s a stark contrast to when we went up and immediately started talking about Europe 

Did we?  Are you sure that wasn't just about the referendum?

Any worse than Burnley’s promotion team? Yea yea they went down at first but they’ve stuck there long enough now with a pretty unspectacular team and really limited investment.

Doubt there would be a current member of our squad that would get into Norwich’s team. They may be rubbish in the Prem but we are rubbish in the champo

 

i think the move to get Scott is Gibbo looking to go back to the type of model Woody talked about when he got the job , albeit with a manager and structure that can deliver it,. That’s the hope anyway as I can’t for a minute see the point of Scott if the future looks anything like hoof ball

I've been surprised at how badly Norwich have started this season. I would have thought they would be much better prepared after their previous experience.

Maybe their players just aren't good enough. Maybe Farke just can't cut it at that level. Probably a bit of both.

At least they should be well prepared for another try if they do get relegated again. Though would not be surprised if they get a new manager in by Christmas if things don't improve.

 

They lost Buendia and Skipp from the centre of their midfield. Having to replace your midfield going into a new Premier League campaign was always going to be difficult.

As it is for us so it seems!

True but Dyche prefers a very different brand of football to Farke. He's basically a more sophisticated version of Warnock (plus Burnley can actually defend).

    • Yeah I didn't think Gary went after Boro at all. Deluded sheep botherers heard one soundbite in isolation and decided that he did for some reason.  He was more asking how as a football community have we got into this situation... How has someone like Morris been allowed to do this. And how can we stop it happening again? 
    • I’m surprised that they still allowed tickets to be sold without announcing some form of checks for this match. It’s not like it wasn’t going to be popular....
    • I think Gary Neville's statement was really good. I thought he spoke with balance and ultimately aimed the questions at the right people, really. It's the view of football in this country and how we manage that situation. He said clubs should be like listed buildings and in one respect I agree as the culture and history of football is huge in this country. But also, you can't afford the government to look out for them when they're also ran by massive risk-taking owners. Which is why we have a Fit & Proper test and FFP and all those things, to try and protect the clubs from the people who run them. But whilst those things only provide an obstacle that these bell ends can overcome, you aren't really protecting anything. And whilst football clubs are like other businesses, that legitimises our claim because Derby have been run like a regular business, not like a club that cares about staying alive. And when the crap hits the fan, they want all the protection in the world, they want MPs to stand up for them, they want local media to challenge us because we're being ***, they only want to pay 25% of their deferred bloody tax. Whilst that's the situation, we should treat them like a regular business. If they want to be treat as part of the football family, they should have acted like a part of it to begin with.
    • So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?
    • tbf Gary didn't belittle the claim, he said if football is a family then the clubs would drop it, even if the claims are legitamite. He also then pointed the finger back at Mel and the administrators. It was clear he was generalising and didn't have the full facts, but he was basing his responce on what happened to Bury. However, that was a much milder screw up than Derby, so not a like for like comparison
