It's a results driven business

It is exciting to see Aarons, Jamal, Godfrey, Thompson all playing, and does show we're trying to invest in our youth product.

But on a more negative side it's a results driven business. One win in six is poor by all standards. And having been soundly beaten by Leeds it's Middlesboro up next. Another defeat, followed by two tricky away ties and we could be in serious trouble.

We all said we'd give Farke 10 games (imo the board will stick with him) but we could realistically be in bottom three by time these games are up, IF Farke can't get results. And if that happens it's hard to see how any manager starts to turn things round.

The other day it was the entertainment business.

Whatever happened to going to the football?

Since when has it been an entertainment business Nutty?

If I want that I go to the circus, theatre or cinema.

Maybe that's what farke said at half time. Go out and entertain-hang on, we wouldn't keep passing about then lol

I agree. But apparently it is. Or so I was told.

It's never going to football anymore. Which is what it is to me.

40+ years supporting ncfc, can't really feel you get entertainment with our yellow and greens!

Plenty of frustration, not so much entertainment!

Re: It's a results driven business

Couple of geezers behind me yesterday were speculating on Martin O'Neill being sounded out as potential replacement for the boy Farke if he is returned to The Deutschland soon. Doubt that would fit with the much vaunted 'project' and / or 'Sporting Director' position any new manager may be required to work with.

Last week the speculation was Russell Martin & Matt Gill so you pays your money and stakes your bets I think.

As I've said elsewhere Farke is ok for now but knives will be well and truly sharpened should we trip over v Reading, QPR and Wigan.

"but knives will be well and truly sharpened"

among those who, anywhere else, would not be allowed sharp objects

You know what they used to say on Blue Peter about using sharp objects

Of course it''s a results driven business, and every Norwich manager will ultimately be judged on that by the crowd. And when the crowd turns, times up.

Re: It's a results driven business

Pretty much sums it up for me Surfer. 

The result on Sunday was a draw though. A lot of posters predicted a draw. Some openly proclaimed they feared a defeat. Lincoln gleefully regaled us all how certain the impending defeat was.

The game before that we went through to the next round of the cup at Cardiff. A result to add to this week's business. Last week's results were a defeat to Leeds and a win against Preston. How does that fortnight stack up business wise?

Professional sport is 100% a results business. You win, you drive atmosphere, ticket and merch sales, you as fans feel better, better players want to play for you and the area you play in gets a big boost. If you can not get the results then the opposite happens.
Our results need to improve.

Glad we won at Cardiff because I will be at Wycombe but that result was against a Cardiff B side and Colin was not that arsed. 5 points in league is not great and needs to improve given that Farke and Webber both said they were very happy with business done in the summer.
One major positive yesterday was Hanley who having missed pre season now seems to be getting back to his best
