With news yesterday that West Bromwich Albion were set to take former Norwich City and Republic of Ireland international midfielder Wes Hoolahan on loan, Baggies fans don’t appear to be that fussed, but some Norwich fans appear to have gone into meltdown.

Having spent ten years and undoubtedly the best spell of his career at Carrow Road, the 36-year-old is a free agent following the expiry of his contract at the club over the summer and it seems plenty of his former fans feel he was more than worthy of a 12 month extension, so links suggesting we could do a deal with him hasn’t gone over too well at all.

To save overly repeating the details of the original story, have a link.

Whilst his best years might be behind him, the above comments are certainly a good indication of how well he’s rated by fans of his former club and as the assumption is that he’d come in as cover for Harvey Barnes given his form for us so far this year, if the price is right, as short-term backup it could be a clever move.

  • Wessi is a great signing for you, Baggies, he’ll make a great super-sub.

    I hear you’re trialling Russell Martin as well – same applies, just use him as a right-back though, that’s where he plays best!

    Best of luck to both Wes and Russ, they were diamonds at NCFC

    • Appreciated chap. I love the fact Norwich fans weren’t happy with this from what I can as that speaks volumes. Good luck to you!

      • Cheers PW – yeah I get it with the Canaries fans, there have been a lot of changes over the last year we need to see some success.

        You Baggies are a bit like us, you’ve come down a rung too – and it’s quite frightening down here! You’re very nicely placed for the play-offs.

        Hope we both have good seasons!

        Off to watch a movie, g’night!

        • I’ll wish you a good weekend mate. Yeah, not ideal but our own fault and as ever, it’s fans who have to suck it up and deal with it. Onwards and upwards has to be the hope, we both have our own yoyo experiences in the past so let’s hope we’re both celebrating come the end of the year.

          Take it easy chap!
