Right now it feels a bit like the play-offs. It’s nine finals – it doesn’t matter too much what has already happened…
It seems like a long time since we’ve heard Daniel Farke speak and by that, I don’t mean reading what he has said in quotes on Canaries.co.uk, I mean actually hearing him speak. I suppose it’s around about three months since we actually heard him talk to us. The last time, I guess, would probably be after the last game Norwich City played, a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sheffield United at Bramall Lane back in early March.
Then we heard him apologising and saying that he couldn’t really ask for much more from the lads. Norwich had played quite well and how they didn’t at least equalise was down to both Dean Henderson’s brilliance and some profligate finishing from the Canaries.
Now though you can hear Daniel Farke speak again, in that soothing Germanic lilt of his, because he’s been speaking to The Athletic’s Norwich City correspondent, Michael Bailey via Zoom.
Subjects covered, naturally, included the little miracle that his squad are working on and how he thinks that City’s last nine games must be treated like nine cup finals.
