Pretty mental that a 31 year old writes like that...

You don't need spelling skills when you're a professional footballer.

Something the academy system needs to do more with is preparing those who don't make it for life in the real world. Possibly look at the American student athlete system where the players need to keep up certain grades to stay in the academy. Obviously this only really works in America because they represent the school and isn't really enforced but it's definitely something they need to look at.

Basically get Coach Carter to setup the new Academy Rules :thumbup:

Norwich City striker Grant Holt has reaffirmed his desire to quit the club, after having a transfer request rejected last week.

The 31-year-old bagged 15 goals for the Canaries last season but he rocked the club last week by revealing he wants to leave.

It is understood that Holt is at loggerheads with Norwich chief executive David McNally.

It was reported earlier this week that Holt could yet sign a new long-term deal at the club, but those talks have not gone well and now the player has repeated he wants to leave.

Holt wrote on Twitter: "Just to stop the rumour mill again. I have expressed to the board and the CEO that I want to leave the football club. Due to disagreements.

"I have loved my 3 years at the club and it sadness me to right this but want use to here it from me first. #lovedmytime" [sic]

Holt, who has been strongly linked with a move to Aston Villa where Norwich boss Paul Lambert is set to take charge, has denied having any disagreements with his manager.

The race for Grant Holt's signature is underway after the striker outlined his intention to leave Norwich this summer.

The burly front man scored 15 goals in an impressive first season in the Premier League and is available to the highest bidder.

There were tweetings on the Twitter last night that West Ham have already made a bid of £4.5million for Holt. And the Mirror report today that Paul Lambert wants to take the striker with him to Aston Villa.

According to the Mirror: 'Lambert is set to be named Aston Villa's new boss on Saturday, after compensation was finally thrashed out with the Canaries on Friday night.

The 42-year-old will sign a three-year deal, then will further infuriate his old club by making a move for want away forward Holt.

The big striker re-Twitter-ated his intention to quit Carrow Road on Friday, and insisted he will not sign a new deal after running out of patience with the club's transfer policy.'

Lee Clark has been targeted to replace Aston Villa-bound Paul Lambert as Norwich manager.

Former Huddersfield boss Clark is on a Canaries shortlist which also includes Cardiff chief Malky Mackay and Birmingham’s Chris Hughton.

Neil Lennon has ruled himself out, insisting he is happy to carry on in charge at SPL champions Celtic. But Clark, 39, is highly regarded.

He spent 13 months at Norwich as former boss Glenn Roeder’s No.2 before becoming Town boss in December 2008.

He enjoyed a successful 38 months there before surprisingly being sacked by the Terriers in February.

A highly-placed Norwich source said: “He is well thought of.”

Malky Mackay and Chris Hughton were installed as favourites for the vacancy at Norwich on Saturday after Aston Villa officially confirmed the appointment of Paul Lambert as their new manager.

The move came two days after Lambert had ensured his availability by tendering his resignation at Norwich, and was made public in the briefest of official statements, which read simply: "The board of Aston Villa are delighted to confirm that Paul Lambert has been appointed Villa manager."

The Scot has signed a three-year contract and is expected to be joined in the Midlands by Ian Culverhouse, his assistant at Carrow Road. Rumours that Villa had already agreed a £1m compensation package with Norwich, who had not accepted his resignation, were refuted by Lambert's previous club. Norwich insisted that they "will continue to discuss this matter privately with Aston Villa", and added that they had already been "inundated with applications for and interest in leading this great club forward in the Premier League".

Birmingham manager Chris Hughton has been granted permission to speak to Norwich.

The Canaries are in the market for a new boss after Paul Lambert completed a switch to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Hughton has been heavily linked to the managerial vacancy at Blues' neighbours West Brom, but the 53-year-old is now set for talks at Carrow Road.

A statement released by Birmingham on Wednesday morning read: "Birmingham City FC can confirm that Norwich City FC have made an approach for Chris Hughton with regards to their vacant managerial position.

"Hughton expressed a wish to speak to the Canaries and permission was reluctantly granted."

Acting chairman Peter Pannu said: "Chris is a great manager and deserves the opportunity to speak to Norwich, which is why we have granted him permission to speak to them."

Norwich see Hughton as the ideal candidate to take the reins from Lambert and continue their remarkable rise up the football ladder.

It seems Norwich will be chatting to Grant Holt about his future, now that Chris Hughton has returned from his holibobs.

Holt's representative Lee Payne said in the Norwich Evening News:

"It is difficult to make any comment with Chris Hughton out of the country and I wouldn't want to comment either way until Chris is back."

Heard about that, not sure what's happened to this lad. A year or two ago he was being linked to Liverpool and Spurs, now he's signing for Norwich.

Goals in the dutch league are basically worth about 0.5 goals in EPL goals :wink:

For every Suarez and Van Nistelrooy there's a Kezman and Alfonso Alves.

You can tell a real talent in the dutch league by how they're doing in European Competition and for the National Team scoring a butt load of goals in that league is very misleading as while the top sides are good some of the bottom ones are pretty poor.

Will be interesting to see how he does and what does this mean for Grant Holt he's been benched a lot this season and maybe they'll look to move him on.

Kezman wasn't that bad, but nowhere near as good as he was hyped up to be. Alves... now he was shocking :lol:

Wouldn't be that surprised if Holt's shipped out. He's not that good, and his diving is embarrassing.

Chris Hughton thinks that new signing Ricky Van Wolfswinkel can 'make the difference' for Norwich City next season.

Hughton signed the Dutch striker for a reported £8.5million from Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon and the Carrow Road manager hopes that the he will help Norwich improve on last season's 11th-place finish in the Premier League.

"In this division you have to make sure you are hard to beat but you also have to have players who can make the difference," Hughton said in the Daily Mirror.

"I can't think of one game last season where we thought this one is going to be comfortable for us.

"This signing could be the one that turns some of our draws into wins. We drew a lot last season and that is one area where we would like to see the difference."

Hughton also thinks that Van Wolfswinkel is capable of making a similar impact to other players in the Premier League who have impressed during their debut season.

Hughton added: "We hope he's the man. The test is can he do it in a very tough division. We've seen scorers at Aston Villa like Benteke when he arrived, and Grant Holt got 15 goals for us in the season before last."

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has confirmed to Sky Sports that he is hopeful of landing Birmingham winger Nathan Redmond.

Redmond impressed hugely during the recent European Under-21 Championship and many people felt he was England's best player.

Now he looks set to leave and Norwich are leading the chase, which is also believed to have included Everton and Swansea.

Hughton and Redmond were together at Birmingham, and now a deal is understood to be close to completion.

"I worked with him at Birmingham. He has done very well and he is a very exciting young player," Hughton told Sky Sports News.

"But any progress that we make on any player, we will only notify you when any business has been done."

Norwich finished in a decent league position last season. They seem to be making some good signings. With Ruddy back fit for next season I think they could do fairly well again.

They finished 11th but were in the relegation battle for most of the season but finished strong.

Changing manager in their second season couldn't have been easy but made some decent signings so far and doesn't look like they'll lose anyone.
