'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No Interest In Holtby

Following on from the loan signings of Ryan Bertrand and Grant Holt, manager Paul Lambert has confirmed that he has a numbers of irons in the fire in terms of potential new recruits for the squad, but he has rubbished suggestions that we are after midfielder Lewis Holtby from Tottingham.

The 23 year old German joined Spurs in the summer for a meague 1.5million so my friend Google tells me, and he's since played 39 times for them, scoring three times.

I'm not really sure where these links have come from, presumably it's because he hasn't figured for Spurs since Boxing Day - until last night of course in their 5-1 loss to Manchester City.

I know little about him but I guess he's a No 10 as Lambert calls them.

Anyway, there's no reason to get excited, because it ain't happening.

'There's about 15 things I'm trying to do at the minute. If one comes off the great, if none come off then that's fine. Lewis Holtby? No, no, no. I've not heard that one.'

Who are these 15 things, and more importantly does that include breathing, speaking and remembering what he needs from the shops?

Hopefully it'll be an interesting final 36 hours or so...we all know we need to strengthen, we all know where we need to strengthen, let's add to the last two performances and have a signing or two that put a further smile on our faces please.

Please get a decent MF we'd cement top 10...
Uh, apparently Fulham have signed him according to Mauricio Pochettino. What in the f....??!!
Stephen Jay Hawkings
Tom Ince please.
juddy, seems he's been in talks with everyone in the Prem apart from us doesn't it! I'd love to have him as well, would fit in perfectly in PL's away formation. I'd also love Holtby as well, perfect player for what we need, but what I've learnt in recent years is that we'll never sign a player the fans actually want beforehand.
The way Fabio is coming on, tI reckon we've got a world class mf right here. He reminds me a little of Manu Petite, the centre circle is his office; knock politely before entering, if you dare.
Holtby would have been prefect
*perfect even
14 lanky centre forwards and who ? lol
Pity he's not after Holtby, he would be useful for us.

Young, hungry player available for around 4 million....would have been nice. Could have even gone for him on loan until the summer with an option to buy. Instead, we are linked with the Chinese international No Whan Gud.
