Journalist Stuart Hodge reckons that the pressure is on Daniel Farke to turn Norwich‘s season around.
Following an eighth defeat of the season against Leeds on Sunday, the Canaries are still winless since their promotion back to the Premier League and are already eight points from safety.
Do Norwich have any chance of staying up?
There might still be 84 points left to play for, but not even the most optimistic Norwich supporter will give Farke’s side much chance of avoiding the drop.
They at least found the net against Leeds, but three goals, eight defeats and 25 goals conceded suggests that the Canaries have little hope of defying the odds and staying in the top-flight.

In truth, if Norwich don’t buck their ideas up quickly, Derby’s lowest points tally of 11 is in danger of being broken.
Their fixture list hasn’t been kind to them, playing four of the traditional top-six already, but when Farke’s team have played the sides around them like Leeds, Watford, and Burnley, they’ve failed to beat them.
There’s still a long way to go and who knows what one victory could do to the confidence of the Canaries squad, but everything points towards a second consecutive relegation from this level.
Hodge has called on Farke to deliver in the coming months.
What did Hodge say?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “Farke and Webber have an established relationship and I think it would take something major to knock that off course.

“However, I feel like that pressure is shifted, it’s now on Daniel Farke to ensure he can get a tune out of that team.”
Are Norwich likely to sack Farke?
At Championship level, at least, the German has to be considered a legendary figure with the Carrow Road faithful.
Delivering two promotion-winning campaigns is no mean feat and they’ll certainly live long in the memory of every Norwich City supporter.
But whilst perhaps there’s no better man to get the club back into the top-flight, there becomes a time when the club’s hierarchy need to break the cycle of following up a promotion with a relegation.
It doesn’t seem likely that’s going to happen any time soon, though. Farke has already survived 10 games without winning, scoring three goals in the process, so whilst the pressure might be on him to deliver results, his job doesn’t appear to be on the line.
