‘What a waste of money he was’ – Norwich’s worst signing in the last 3 years: The Verdict

Published

on

Norwich City made a number of high profile signings over the summer, with the likes of Jordan Rhodes, Tim Krul, Teemu Pukki and more joining the ranks at Carrow Road.

It has been two seasons since the Canaries were a Premier League outfit, but current manager Daniel Farke will be hoping his new additions can boost the squad into a promotion contending team.

Norwich have started the season with one win and one draw from their opening five fixtures, but will be looking to continue adding points to their tally throughout the 2018/19 campaign.

Both former managers Alex Neil and Alan Irvine have taken charge of Norwich over the past three seasons, with the former guiding the Canaries to the Premier League, before their eventual relegation back down the Championship under the latter.

All three of these managers introduced new playing styles, new tactics and new players to Carrow Road, with some signings working out better than others.

We discuss the worst Norwich City signing from the last three years….

Alfie Burns

Steven Naismith was a huge disappointment.

The former Everton man arrived with a great reputation, but Norwich never saw the best of him.

He has had very little impact during his time at Carrow Road.

Christian Fuller

With barely a game to his name last season, the signing of Ben Marshall this summer was a confusing one.

Seemingly to continue his role as bench warmer, the 27-year-old defender joined the ranks at Norwich City, but just isn’t seemed to be needed at Carrow Road.

Simply not needed in my eyes.

Chris Gallagher

Marcel Franke has to be up there, what a waste of money he was.

He was signed for a pretty hefty fee from German football but has barely played for the Canaries.

Franke was sent out on loan in January and has gone to Darmstadt now. He may come good but at the minute he looks like a big waste of money.
