'H' to Norwich?

'H' to Norwich?

Heidar Helguson is set to sign for a team in Yellow. Sadly, the flying Icelander is to become a Canary on loan for the season.

With a lack of real Watford transfer news to report on deadline day, this will have to suffice.

The 31 year-old forward left Watford three years ago for Fulham where he spent two years before signing for Bolton but suffered injury early on and by the time he'd returned, Gary Megson was boss. Megson evidently wants shot of the former Lillestrom striker and has brough in Johan Elmander, Mustafa Riga and most recently, Ebi Smolarek in the striking department.

Charlton and Crystal Palace were both believe to be chasing the Icelandic cap too, but Norwich, with Arturo Lupoli and ex-Hornet protegee, Omar Koroma on-loan, ex-'Orns boss Glenn Roeder is still keen to strengthen.

Meanwhile, former Hornet loanee, Collins John has returned to Holland on a free transfer after an injury-ravaged 18 months.

As yet, still no news of any new Golden Boys, but keep your browser tuned to VitalWatford for everything Yellow.

H at Norwich? I'd rather see him at the Vic more than the once this season. Is exactly what we need, but can't afford..... Heh ho, Come on you Golden Boys!

Phew! no players lost. thats one good thing, now all we gotta do is see what happens in Jan, there is £4million pound loan, needed repaying then, lets hope we can some one with money to buy the club.
02/09/2008 08:25:00
Yes it's a big relief. I don't quite understand why this £4m loan repayment is such a big deal, when it could be extended / renegotiated if the board could guarantee it, which I guess is the crux of the issue. Now let's maintain our performance on the pitch and sort out the funding off it. Come on You Golden Boys!
02/09/2008 08:51:00
The club did try to extend the period of the loan, but this was refused by Barclays. Yes, it may be a case of extending the loan, but if you were in a bank and had been informed that the board were activley seeking to sell the club, would you really be looking at longterm loans? The long term loan is already in place, this was used to purchase the ground. This loan was taken out a couple of seasons ago.

Well as long as he doesn't score a s**tty goal against us, I really couldn't care less :) After Saturday, what MAJOR changes do we really have to make, honestly?? ((Well other than a decent chairman!! ))
02/09/2008 11:51:00
I know what you mean Pat, he was totally disrespectful in the manor he celebrated scoring against us, doubt we would see that from Henderson!
02/09/2008 13:34:00
We shouldn't have any bitterness. Helguson was a great player for us, played his heart out and kept us up almost single handed 4 seasons ago, before Aidy used his sale proceeds to build the promotion team. Is a top man, always welcome back at the Vic and I don't have a problem with him celebrating should he score - - although hope it doesn't happen. Hendo is also another great pro, remember him and Chris Morgan (now a team mate of course) kicking lumps out of each other and then sharing a botle of water during an injury break in the 1-0 win vs Shef U last seaaon. This is what football should be like but rarey is. Come on You Golden Boys!

Totally disagree with you on this point RFB. I remember Luther Scoring a penalty against us, he never over elaborated, as many former playrs who go back and score,do not do this, Helguson was almost a God here but his over zealous celebration, showed a complate lack of respect to the fans,
02/09/2008 15:04:00
Luther is in a league and class of his own without doubt, but I prefer to welcome back former players and thank them for what they did for us, (assuming they served us well) rather than get uptight about goal celebrations for their new employers. Live and let live, life is just too short.
02/09/2008 17:21:00
A great philosophy you have and i bow to you with regards getting uptight, i hate it if anyone scores against us and it feels even worse if they go OTT with their celebrations, so you are a better person than me,
