The Mirror have reported that Norwich City have formally written to the club complaining about the way Paul Lambert has been courting Wes Hoolahan.
In return, the club have replied confirming the receipt of the letter/e-mail and duly noted the contents of it.
It’s pretty obvious that Hoolahan has been tapped up in some way, which is nothing unusual, as we all know it happens throughout the game, but I do wish the Norwich board would grow up and get over the way Lambert left, as it’s starting to get boring.
That said, do Norwich have a point?
I’m not convinced they do really, as as far as I know, Lambert has only said something along the lines of “he’s a player I know well and have worked with successfully, but he’s Norwich’s player and we’ll have to see.”
Unless I’ve missed something, all pretty innocuous and run of the mill stuff.
If anything, it’s Hoolahan Norwich ought to be having a go at.
After all, he’s the one who put in a transfer request and after having it refused, went on to say that he wants to come to Villa, as he’s fed up of not playing.
I personally don’t care if he comes or not, as his signing has nothing to do with the “project” and is basically an admission that the plan of buying cheap, low quality players has failed miserably, to my mind.
I mean, many of us asked for experience, but we wanted quality too.
And while Hoolahan might well be decent for us, he’s not really what I had in mind.
Still, he’s cheap, isn’t he?
Except he probably won’t be as cheap as we’d expect, as Norwich will want their pound of flesh before they agree a deal.
Just get it done and out of the way, so we can go back to dreaming about £10 million class players that we’re about to get in, I reckon…….
Who am I trying to kid?
