More Good News... NO Grant Holt!

Norwich City have confirmed that 31-year-old Grant Holt has signed a new three year deal with the Canaries.

Villa and West Ham had been linked. The Hammers had a couple of bids turned down. I very much doubt that Villa approached, not the sort of end of the market we are looking at is it? 31 years old and over £6million? No thanks!

Talksport are saying he rejected the advances of both West Ham and Villa but I can only see evidence of one of those clubs bidding and it wasn`t us!

Not at all bothered by this. You?

If he'd been cheap, it might have made sense but no, not an exciting signing !

As I said when it was first muted a £6m transfer, £2m a year in wages, signing on fees, agents fees etc he would have cost in excess of £15m. He is getting older, and slowerand we wouldn't have got a penny back at the end of the contract. I am sure there are better ways of spending £15m.

Signing Holt would have been about as useful as useful as sticking a couple of red hot chilli's up a dead mules arse and telling it to canter!!!!

Good news. Lambert said in his press conference that, "things move on" and I don't think we bid for him, unlike the Caramel signing there were no quotes from anyone, just lazy journalistic hack nonsense. So I'm pleased it's now nipped in the bud. Next!

I might be proved wrong but I would suggest that Grant Holt may prove to be a one season "wonder" in the Premiership. May be cynical but far be it for me to suggest his agent encouraged him to slap the transfer request in to strengthen the bargaining position for a pay rise.

Good player if you wanted a punt at a £1m or £2m for a 31 yr old. But not really the direction I think we want to go in. I'm still looking forward to see Gabby play under Lambert. I think he needs the right manager, to be played properly down the middle and use his pace against the last defender. With that kind of pace defences will struggle to play high lines against us and could allow us a but of valuable room to play a bit of passing football in midfield. Got a funny feeling this year will be a good one for Gabby.

Just look at Holt's face - he's not cool enough for Villa.
