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

What does the future hold for Chris Martin?

With the Canary's proud promotion to the Premier League now confirmed, all eyes are understandably starting to focus on what happens next.

Inevitably this means that some of the heroes who fought so hard to book a place at the top-table of English football may not get the opportunity to prove themselves there.

A few are out of contract, some will get the chance to rub shoulders with Rooney and co, but several will be deemed surplus to requirements and will be plying their trade elsewhere.

So with that in mind (and not at all ripping off a series of articles on Vital Pompey) we decided to flick through the City squad to see who we think fits into each category...

Chris Martin
League & Cup apps (as a sub): 23 (9)
Goals: 6

After hitting 23 goals as the Canaries surged to the League One title a lot was expected from Chris Martin this season.

He started the campaign alongside Grant Holt but lost his position briefly to Simeon Jackson before it was apparent that, at that time at least, Jackson was useless.

Suggestions of off-field problems and injuries decimated Martin's season however and his return to fitness coincided with Jackson's discovery superb end of season form, resulting in Martin having to settle for a place on the bench.

He still has two years to run on his contract, but is currently third-choice striker and reinforcements expected to arrive it is going to take a big preseason for Martin for force his way back into Paul Lambert's plans.
