Given that he played for Norwich, and successfully too, it is feasible that they could go for him if Farke leaves, as all fans are partial to ex players coming back as managers. I think in my time supporting Cov we have had Gould, Curtis, Sillett, McAllister, Adams and Pressley as ex players given our manager's job. Most other clubs will have done the same I think.

I was thinking about this the other day. I genuinely think that if we do well this year (assuming we don’t get promoted - we won’t btw) then he could well be off…like that bloke from Barnsley last year.
He’s getting a lot of plaudits…even before this season…he’s bound to get more attractive offers sooner or later.

Again Strachan came as a player to us also. I'm sure big Ron didn't bring him in as assistant manager.

Burnley would seem a good fit in terms of cash strapped and in the Prem.

They're gonna get sick of Dyche and his shithousery up there soon.

Robinsball with Prem money would suit them I reckon.

Hope it never happens, but that's my two penn'orth.
That is a good shout.

The only way he will get there is by getting a team promoted into it. If he held his own another Premier team might be interested, but even then the odds would be stacked against him.

The only current premier league team that would make any sense as a good appointment for Robins would be Burnley so no chance.

lol Burnley would be nothing without Dyche who defies the odds every single season
The irony being if you were a Burnley fan you’d be on their forum being the first one to call for Dyche’s sacking season after season

What and sack Dyche to appoint him?
Exactly why I said no chance. My point is that did that position happen to be open it needs a manager similar to Dyche, therefore Robins would make sense. Should they ever lose Dyche the worst thing Burnley could do is bring in a big name, they need a manager of a certain mould.
