Daniel Farke: I’m full of respect for Steve Bruce’s work

31 January 2020

Norwich City Head Coach Daniel Farke says he’s a big fan of Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce ahead of the Premier League meeting between the two sides this weekend.

Amid murmurings of a potential change in Newcastle’s ownership, Farke was also asked how a more buoyant crowd could affect Saturday’s game.

“We only think about things we can control,” he said. “Steve Bruce is such an experienced coach that he will focus his team on this game and just these 90 minutes, not on any other topics. We will do the same, concentrating on our football.

“We have to be good to have a good chance to win some points.

“It’s not easy when there are rumours in the background, but Steve is good at man management and I’m full of respect for his work. When you play a side coached by him it’s difficult because they’re always well-structured and difficult to break down and create chances against.

“They have many threats in the offense and it’s difficult to beat them, so I was happy that we were able to earlier in the season at Carrow Road with a fantastic performance, but now they’re more settled, solid and structured so it will be a difficult task.

“They are always good when they are solid. We have to control their quick counterattacks and their pace. They’re at home and in a solid position. They may opt to press a bit higher, so we have to be prepared for different scenarios and be good in our possession, to control the game.

“We don’t go into any game to avoid losing, we go into them to win. We’re not thinking too much about results but more the topics we have to be good in to deliver a performance that brings us into the situation of winning the game.

“We’ve delivered three top-class performances in the last few games. Sadly, the outcome wasn’t perfect with just two wins and an unlucky loss at Tottenham. We will go into every game in order to win it, and if we can’t we want to make sure at least we don’t lose it.”

Farke was also asked for his response to Danny Murphy’s comment that Norwich City are the best bottom-placed team he’s seen in the Premier League.

“I would prefer him to say we were the best 16th-placed team he’d ever seen,” he mused. “It’s nice to get compliments and we appreciate it, but we’re not dancing on the tables about being bottom of the league.

“It’s good that we get praise for our performances. Our goal is still to work on our little miracle and hopefully at the end of the season we won’t have to speak about being at the bottom of the league.”

City held to goalless draw at Newcastle

1 February 2020

Norwich City played out a 0-0 draw with Newcastle United at St. James' Park on Saturday.

There were chances aplenty for both sides in both halves, but spectacular performances from Tim Krul and Martin Dubravka kept the score at 0-0.

Daniel Farke named an unchanged line-up from the Canaries’ most recent Premier League outing away at Tottenham Hotpsur.

January recruits Ondrej Duda and Lukas Rupp retained their placed in the starting XI, with the fit-again Emiliano Buendia named among the substitutes.

There was a real purpose and tempo to Norwich’s early play and inside the opening five minutes Sam Byram tested the reflexes of Martin Dubravka with a bullet head from Duda’s inswinging corner.

Newcastle threatened on occasions, notably through livewire winger Allan Saint-Maximin, but it was the Canaries who continued to engineer the better goalscoring chances.

Teemu Pukki’s snap-shot from the edge of the area was superbly tipped over the bar by Dubravka, after the hosts had failed to clear a dangerous Duda delivery from the right.

But the best chance of the opening half came on the 20-minute mark.

DeAndre Yedlin scampered clear down the right flank with his back-post cross met by the head of Joelinton. Tim Krul flew left to save, with Miguel Almiron nodding the rebounds wide of a seemingly empty net.

On the half-hour Rupp sent Pukki through on goal, only for the covering Federico Fernandez to slide in and block at the vital moment.

As half time rapidly approached Norwich were once again in the ascendancy.

Duda saw a shot loop off a defender and onto the roof of the net before a Byram volley was deflected narrowly wide.

City started the second half the better side, with Kenny McLean rising to meet Duda’s corner kick at the near post only to head across the face of goal.

Newcastle were on the backfoot, but Krul had to be alert to keep a Grant Hanley clearance out of his own net.

The momentum was with the visitors and following a slick Norwich counter involving Todd Cantwell and Rupp, Pukki fired over the bar after being picked out by the German.

Emi Buendia was introduced on the hour, as attempts to unlock the Newcastle defence suddenly intensified.

Another clear-cut chance for the Canaries came on 72 minutes, when Pukki was sent clear by Duda with Dubravka alert to repel an initial attempt. Duda then slammed the loose ball into the side netted with the goalkeeper grounded.

Onel Hernandez replaced Tettey and Mario Vrancic came on for Rupp with a handful of minutes to go as City continued to hunt for a late winner.

It wasn't to be, however, with the sides being forced to settle for a solitary point.
