Second best to the rugby, and comfortably second best to the hosts, Norwich City’s rut is slowly transitioning into a rot.
There were positives, but once again Norwich’s deficiencies were strikingly prominent during the 90 minutes. Defensive errors and a lack of confidence in the final third led to a frustrating evening for the 600 travelling fans.
Those 600 supporters deserve a tremendous amount of plaudits for embarking on the lengthy journey to Wales parting with the contents of their wallets in the process. But where does the blame lie? Do those watching from the comfort of the executive box deserve the condemnation of supporters or are other factors to blame?
Norwich City is seemingly in freefall. Despite a more strategic and long term standpoint on the direction of the club, they could be accused of neglecting the current state of play.
Sure, Norwich will be a sustained and better rounded football club in five years time, but the supporters and playing staff will be left frenetically looking over both shoulders should this run of form continue. This division is unforeseeable and Norwich run the risk of flirting with the bottom three should Daniel Farke and his squad not formulate a winning blueprint.
This club is massively underachieving.
A period of gross mismanagement and high expenditure has led to dangerous decline. The eras of Mr McNally, Moxey and Neil leave a bitter taste in the mouth and their predecessors have to sweep up the mess, and rapidly.
This is a costly experiment however, and after the underwhelming disappointment of the campaign previous, supporters are seemingly being reunited with a sense of disengagement and apathy.
Preaching about time and patience is refreshing yet in the current climate, concerns are increasing. The players are not responding nor improving under Farke’s methods. Is this due to a lack of ability or an over complication of his philosophy?
