Pointless signing imo

Bit like the NML signing for me. Really hard to get excited when people are gutted about missing out on players like Collins too. We had two strikers better than him, and couldn't even get them firing

Junior Hoilett who has had one decent season his whole career 4 years ago and turns 31 in a few days. 

Great stuff.

Just need Johnson to resign and we have our first choice wingers for next season.

I’d rather hoilett than see spence on the winger again 😂

If it's small wages and he's not a starter and on a 1year contract, then I understand the move as a squad filler but honestly this signing just sums us up as a club.

Football is going to be absolutely horrible to watch next season and worse than having Spence in our team...😂 Thankfully he's on his way out for 50p

You just know he'll be a top earner on a three year contract.

Let’s just calm down and see what the teams like when the window shuts

But where would be the fun in that?

A couple of months of feverish speculation and arguments, followed by ultimate disappointment when we finally see who we've signed is just a normal summer, right?

Where is the Holliett link that he has signed from come from or is this just us having a meltdown based on what some user has said on another forum?

TLF might get some patience from the over 40's and even then I'd give it until January before the knives were out for playing attractive football but just two points off the relegation places. The Championship isn't where TLF played for us and apart from that Football has changed a lot since his time in England which is the same stick used to beat Warnock with albeit their philosophies would be different.

We can't blame SG for being stuck in the 90's then ask him to bring back an ex Player with zero knowledge of the Championship or the opponents he would be facing every week.

But how many managers who are both relatively young, have recent Championship experience AND would be willing to manage us can you think of?

I think all this talk of potential managers having to have knowledge of the Championship is rubbish.

How much knowledge of the Championship do you suppose Daniel Farke had before he came to Norwich? Or some of Watford's recent managers? Or Brentford's manager...or Barnsley's manager?

Look at what Karanka did for us.

We have "Mr Championship" as our manager and look where we ended up...

Good football is good football and will work in most leagues, with the odd bit of tweaking.

So long as there's competition for his place, I'm okay with it. We need 4 wide options, we currently have zero/one - depending where you see Watmore - with Bolasie, NML, Kebano, and Johnson all leaving. Hoilett as one of the four is fine. Not amazing. But fine.
