Was Aidy right about Strihavka?

Was Aidy right about Strihavka?

Former Hornets target and trialist David Strihavka has been offloaded by Norwich City as part of Glenn Roeder`s clearout - just 6 months after joining for €1m (or so they say0 - and after publicly criticising Watford for forcing him to go on trial.

Czech striker Strihavka was quick to take a swipe at Hornets gaffer Aidy Boothroyd for insisting on an 'unpleasant` trial period back in January 2007 claiming "if you want me you should sit down, discuss a contract and close a deal. I have already provided I could score goals…I would never go for a trial again. Trials are for players who are fighting for a chance".

But Boothroyd stuck by his guns of getting to know a player's character - either on trial or on loan - before commiting to a long term deal and now it seems the Watford supremo was right to be cautious of the former Banik Ostrava frontman.

Strihavka started only 3 games for Norwich this season and spent much of the campaign sat warming the bench, whilst fans were treated to a frontline which featured John Hartson…yes he was that far down the pecking order!

Now with footballing giants (?) Czech outfit Mlada Boleslav circling around Carrow Road, Strihavka is moving back to his homeland, presumably believing his talents have lit up the East Anglian football scene.

We all believe he has goals in him, he has great pace and is 6'3. Still, Roeder doesn't seem convinced, and he would know more than me.
