Norwich City’s rise to the top of the Championship table has left a lot of pundits scratching their heads as to how it has happened.

When you compare this season to last, plenty of professional observers  have made comments like “They used to just pass the ball around” or “I didn’t think they were going anywhere under Daniel Farke.”

Comments like that have been well and truly dismissed by the advent of the Canaries’ irresistible Farkeball as it’s become known in these parts.

Beautiful passing football with a very real and dangerous goal threat on the end of it. That’s not the only story to it though. When not in possession, Norwich work hard to win it back and press their opponent. Two or more players will hunt the ball down until they have it back again and then look to work an opening and get the ball forwards, usually at serious pace.

Of course, if you don’t believe in facts and would rather concentrate on something a little more superstitious you could just look at the fact that Daniel Farke doesn’t even need his lucky green parka anymore…
