Farke isn’t the football guru after all

Recommended Posts

When Farke was our head coach, So many people said how great he would do if he got a better job with a bigger club. 
 

Well, it would appear not after all, as he is doing to MG what Wagner is doing here it would seem. 
 

Maybe he’s just the German equivalent of Lambert when he was here and is really not as good as people make out

I see he's been given the dreaded vote of confidence.

We'll see what kind of patience they have with him. His first season has lots of echoes of what happened here, if they give him time maybe the second season will mirror what happened here too.

Great news, if they fire him we can bin off Webber etc.

The yanks first job can be to get a flight to Deutschland and get on his knees begging farke back.

The fairy tale is in motion

Gladbach came into this season with a relatively new DOF and a new manager, they also had some important players on the last year of their contracts. It was always going to be a difficult season and losing Sommer in January didn't help. 

They have a very important summer coming up in the transfer window but then again who doesn't.

It's such a simple game. Match supporters expectations and they can stay. Don't match supporters expectations and they get 'out' added to their name. It happened twice with Farke here.

Sommer , seems to have been around for years. He has always been a top class goalkeeper.  Yes he will be and is being missed at BMG. @. Farke seems to be mirroring Norwich City  season so far. His next two results  I think will determine  if he still has a job thereafter. 

Cmon back as SD daniel and put webber out to pasture and let him practice for the Everest attempt ( off pay offcourse).

It's not so simple to suggest Farke could come back as a Sporting Director, as he may not have the skillset to carry out such a role?

It was what he originally wanted to do.

Admittedly at a smaller club, but I'm pretty sure his first job at Lippstad was as a director of football.

I believe he has a college degree in Sporting Directorship as well. So on paper more qualified than Stu, who is only QBE!

To be fair 10th is about where Gladbach should be based on prior seasons, well, anwyhere from 6th to 10th really.

Between 2011-12 and 2020-21, they always finished between 3rd and 9th. Four of those ten seasons were top four finishes and Champions League qualification. 

Last season they finished 10th, their lowest position for over a decade, and their coach was sacked as a result. This season will either match that position or worse:

Was about to say the same- 10th won't be considered a good result for them and based on the table it could get worse- lose the next game and they could drop to 12th, along with still having games v Dortmund and Leverkusen still to come but there is a decent sized gap to 9th they'd struggle to overcome.

Transitional season for them, where they replaced key personnel both on the pitch and off. Harsh to sack a coach under that situation. Stinks of first season at Norwich. Needs a pre season

Nor does our current one, but that doesn't seem to bother the board or our owners

Anyone been watching his team much this season?  Watched them early on and thought they looked quite different to how we setup and a bit more physical and aggressive - but that may have been down to the players at his disposal there.

I don't know if they've experienced the naivety as we did here when playing out from the back and losing possession cheaply.  And maybe too rigid in sticking to farkeball'?
