    I don't think that would be a terrible hire for them. Just not sure what the point of sacking Farke is.

    Be interesting to see who comes in. Presumably they have somebody lined up so should find out in next couple of days.

    Be interesting to see how Farke gets on at next club. Won't be short of offers in championship imo.

    A bit like Spurs making their move before the Utd job becomes available, Norwich are making their move before the Watford job becomes available.

    Gary Lineker signs off MOTD in style:

    “Norwich finally win a game, and Daniel Farke’s off”

    I read on one of the Saints forums something about the next manager definitely picking Gilmour. So that’s a certainty then

    Seemed inevitable if they lost to us. And they were already sounding out replacements

    Unlike Farke, Smith being sacked is of zero surprise to me.

    Five defeats at any stage of the season isn't good, particularly given the money they spent. But doing so immediately leading into an international break was a total killer. Such a run could not have been timed any worse for Smith.

    It would be brilliant if Eddie gets cold feet at the last minute, and decides that Birmingham suits him more than Newcastle. After all, he did turn down Celtic late in the day, with the distance from home apparently being a factor.

    I guess because it seems like the newcastle attempts to appoint a new manager are appearing to be a bit of a shambles

    loads of people have turned it down

    almost as if they fired Bruce with no plan

    A certainty that Villa will appoint another manager?

    Is this based on who they think they can get as their new manager ?

    I mean we know this in general due to how they acted in the summer. Just wondered if something knew had come up

    edit : yep - I forgot to actually reply directly to the lampard message and whilst typing the Aston Villa story dropped

    This was supposed to be in reply to the lampard to Norwich link

    there was a pessimist somewhere who said they expected the new manager to play Gilmour and him to suddenly do really well or something

    Well, it has been a little surprising Norwich haven’t played Gilmore more than they have, considering they cant buy a win until yesterday, and he is a fairly decent player.

    Not sure who said that, but it doesn’t sound overly pessimistic to say it, unless the context was different. Unless you are referring to the one on SWF?

    “Farke Off. Headline writes itself. Normally fear the new manager bounce but not so sure with Norwich. No doubt the new boss will play Billy Gilmour and he'll have a stormer, but I still fancy us to beat them.“
