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

It's All Gone Quiet Over Here


With the World Cup and England's first game just a few days away, things have gone a little quiet on the Norwich City front. I suppose that is only to be expected, what with footballers being on holiday as well as 'The Greatest Show On Earth' about to grip our attention.

The signing of Lewis Grabban last week was a welcome shot in the arm for City supporters and shows a certain level of intent from the City board. Neil Adams has denied any approach for Blackburn goal machine, Jordan Rhodes but his odds are as low as 2/1 to join City at the moment, so there's probably at least some interest in him.

I can't really see that one happening, although I'd love it if it did. Rhodes cost Blackburn 8m two years ago and has got even better, making me think we'd have to pay around 10-12m for him - surely out of our reach. A better option could be Leeds' Ross McCormack - with Leeds constantly in a perilous financial position they could probably be persuaded to part with him.

There's no more news on the situation of either RvW or Gary Hooper, with Neil Adams stating last week that neither player had received any transfer bids. That strikes me as a good thing, especially with Hooper, although if RvW does move on then a move for Rhodes could perhaps be possible.

In other news, Russell Martin has had a hernia operation but the club are happy to say that this won't affect his pre-season and Martin Olsson has not yet had shoulder surgery, as this is still being assessed by the medical team and he's probably on a beach somewhere at the moment.

Pre-season starts for Norwich City on 30th June with the players back in for individual fitness tests in the days just before. It seems likely that the World Cup won't hamper our transfer plans too much, as we are going to be looking for the best Championship players - at least I hope we are, and those lads generally won't be in Brazil.

As usual, I'll keep my head down and keep you updated with the latest as it happens.
