Norwich latest news: 'Honest' verdict on Daniel Farke's Carrow Road future - revealed


Journalist Stuart Hodge doesn't reckon that Daniel Farke is in danger of losing his job – and believes he would only face the sack if he lost the dressing room.

The Canaries sit rock-bottom of the Premier League having only collected one point from their opening seven games, although that did come in their last game at Burnley last weekend.

What's the latest news with Farke?

Whatever happens from now, the German has already engraved his name into Norwich City folklore for good following two brilliant promotions.

But whilst Canaries fans no doubt idolise him, they're desperate to bridge that gap and prove they're good enough to compete in the Premier League.

However, it's been a familiar story during the early stages of this season, which leaves them facing a well-known feeling in the months ahead.

The draw with Burnley at least ended their 16-game losing streak in the top-flight, but it left Norwich three points from safety and already staring down the barrel at a second relegation in the space of three years, with the season barely two months old.



In Farke's defence, Norwich have been handed arguably the toughest fixtures possible having already faced Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Leicester and Everton and they have competed well in the majority of those.

With that in mind, Hodge believes that as long as that remains the case and Norwich avoid rolling over, then his position will remain safe.

He told GIVEMESPORT: "To be honest, I don't think his job is in question. I think if you'd have lost the opening ten games of the season on the spin then maybe.

"I think the key factor will be, people talk about losing the dressing room, if the belief came to cataclysmically through the floor that they were going to games without any fight, that's the point where questions would be asked.

"I think it would more about the way you got a hiding rather than the fact you got a hiding, so I don't think his job is in question."

Do Norwich have any chance of staying up?

The odds are already stacked against Norwich, even though they're just three points from safety.

With just two goals in more than 10 hours of Premier League football, they're clearly suffering from a lack of quality going forward, whilst 16 goals shipped up the other end doesn't read great either.

It's foolish to rule them out in early October, but it's clear to see that it's going to take a monumental effort for Norwich to finish above the relegation-zone this season.
