Despite being fired by Aston Villa for his poor performance, coach Dean Smith was suddenly appointed by Norwich to the chief driver’s seat. However, the failure of the strategist born in 1971 has spread from Villa to Norwich.
“Canary” went through a stormy December with an achievement… 5 consecutive defeats, received 14 goals and didn’t even score a goal. Further, Norwich have 7 consecutive matches without knowing the smell of victory in the Premier League and 6 of those matches did not score.
In fact, Norwich has only once enjoyed the joy since Smith came to power (won Southampton in round 12). Thus, the win rate of this leader in the Premier League arena as the current Norwich head coach is only… 12.5%, the lowest in the team’s history.
In addition, under Smith, Norwich only scored an average of 0.3 goals per game but conceded up to 16 times (average of 2 goals per game). At the time Dean Smith took over at Norwich, this club was ranked at the bottom of the Premier League table. Currently, Norwich’s ranking is unchanged, but the performance has worsened.
Not stopping there, Norwich have not won 8 consecutive matches as a guest of West Ham. In the past 11 years, Norwich have never won more than 1 match in London, but earlier this season they overcame Brentford.
