Wouldn't like to see him go but if he wants to and the bid is a good one (4m not too shabby) then you can't really say no, hopefully AN will have a word and he'll stay to the end of the season at least!!
He is one of 5 left backs that Swansea are looking at.
I'd want more than 4m for him. One of our best players imo, even if he has been a bit patchy this season.
Like I said, don't want him to leave but if the bid is good then sometimes you just have to say yes! 4m is a start, the club can always price him out of a move but risk having an unhappy player.
I would let him go for 5+ and give toffolo a shot, been absolutely outstanding at swindon, garrido also has enough quality to be decent at this level
Let him go for 5+Mill and AN can go back to his old club Hamilton Acadmicals and get the young and exciting left back Stephen Hendrie who has just turned 20yrs old and has attracted interest from a couple of prem clubs and looks very good. Would only cost may be 1 - 2 million as well.
Transfer fee's are a joke, if Olsson is worth £4 to £5m it just show's how far out of touch football is with the working man, this use to be a release valve on a Saturday, but now it's just too expensive to go. best thing football could do is get shot of the agents, if players are bright enough to agree their own demands without some fat lardy guy taking a large cut, then fools they are !!
4 m having a laugh, he's not worh 2m, let him go,
Ever since he laughed and joked with Arsenal players as we went down, I've been wanting to move him on, good if he can be bothered, which isn't often and not someone you want around when the going gets tough, I'd bite their hand off at £4M!
Spot on couldn't agree more, send him packing along with bassong
Look like he will stay a Canary as Swansea just bought Kyle Naughton from Spurs.
Naught on is a much better player plus he isn't the sort who would put in a transfer request altogether a much better bit of business for Swansea both in terms of ability and attitude.
Nautons a right back ain't he?
Kyle can play both RB and LB. But, there is now an article saying Monk is chasing Olsson as well. So maybe he is on his way out then.
Yep good old harry hill can fill ya boots

How can he be a long term replacement when redmonds only 20 years old
That makes no sense, what difference does redmonds age make????
Redmond is greedy
17 Jan 2015 17:31:16
The great pen. taker
14 Jan 2015 12:18:56
Yes see that just come back from bad injury and played 1 game in 14 months for stoke.
How come someone has disagreed??????? do they have ears and eyes???
Despite a good number of centre backs we have a problem there. We have players who should be good enough but the conundrum is that they don't perform. Plus we are near the top of the Championship for penalties conceded. One week they play like Superman the next week they are more like a couple of new born giraffes.
Another penalty conceded by our cb unbelievable !
11 Jan 2015 12:15:01
We need to beef up our central defense not the midfield
He's decent though
I'd say the priority should be right back, not centre back. With Bassong potentially back and R Bennett, I think we're stronger there - a lot of the mistakes in that area were always going to come with little cover of the defence.
Seems after a heart to heart with Seb today he has said he's happy to stay and play for Alex
I think right back is a priority - whittaker just hasn't got the pace to cope with the best wingers in the league and unfortunately, I think Martin has lost a little bit too. A really quick attacking right back would give us more momentum going forward. Similar to Martin when we got promotion.
Bassong is pretty awful though. Keen for 1-2 new defenders to strengthen our easily weakest area.
A more focused Bassong would be an asset, allowing Martin to move to his best position of RB (even if it's not his preferred)
Leave bassong where he is, he couldn't be bothered with us a few months ago, besides, he's one of the worst defenders I've ever seen, 1 season wonder for us
We don't need a new right back Martin was my motm against Cardiff
One thing we don't need is Bassong's well reported bad attitude infecting the rest of the squad.

There is an air of expectancy at norwich but the man has to be given some time to imprint his way on our rather inconsistent side! Hopefully he will kick certain players up the arse and get them motoring!!
Totally agree, well said
Very happy with the appointment of our new manager Alex Neil. Looks like he has the ability to build a winning side and take us forward.
09 Jan 2015 11:51:05
Rubbish, already said he will not be in dugout tomorrow
For gods sake give the guy a chance wh all tjs doom and gloom. who gave pl a chace then look at what he did for us, how mny of you tht don agree with this new managers appointment will be cheering him when we get promotion at the en o the season, so get behind them all and keep the faih OTBC
That's why sky are reporting he will be taking charge tomorrow is it
If you watch the press conference he said he would not be in the dugout get your facts right if you are going to post comments
Lets say you were both right in the end lol! 'peace'

A. new board and a new manager
Looks like we are going to take too long to sack this manager to get promotion back on the cards. He still has most of what was a Prem squad and yet his side concedes poor goals regularly- worse still the board don't have the guts to do what is needed. We are just buying players for investment value to play money ball and have long forgotten that the purpose of having a team is to win games. Adams is a good guy but not up to getting us promotion let alone managing us if we do. Missing out on Lennon was foolish in the extreme. The board want a patsy not a winner. The team seem to know it. Our lack of ambition is evidenced by the fact that we have no loan signings because we prefer to buy so we can sell at a profit. This is the proof that the board lack ambitions on the field and that lack of ambition at board level is communicated to the manager and players and that is why we don't win the games that our fans expect that we should otherwise win. Profitable trading on players is more important to the board than winning games. Fact. If it wasn't the board would have made some quality loan signings and Adams would be replaced or at least fired.
The harsh fact is as a club we have reached our level, season after season we allude ourselves that "this time" things will be different, but the Paul Lambert era apart we have had very little to cheer about for many years and I for one have not been overly excited about an incoming player since Darren Huckerby. We are in truth an average championship club at best, and to think that we will go and get the calibre of players that are mentioned here with this current board are in cuckoo land. Let's all forget about having a successful prem club and support our team for what they really are.
We definitely need to make changes! Management and player wise, we need to get rid of all the big egos and bring in players that want to play for the club, not the pay cheque!! Desperately need atleast another 2 wingers on top of what we have, not IF we sell Redmond
Forget new players, we need a manager !!!!!!!!!
Desperate for a no nonsense centre back, but I tend to agree that Adams hasn't the total command of the players. I'm also quite sure they don't see a great deal of idea's from Gary Holt either, he was a genuine huff and puff player, played with effort but little else, you can do that these days but you do need at least 2 players to keep it simple and control things at the moment it's getting back to dross !
Phelan should be boss, adams should go back to the radio !! phelan must have learnt something working under ferguson !!
I don't subscribe to the notion that we are a "player trading" club at all - Just think about it for a minute - if you have an asset of a value that you are trading, you want that asset to appear to potential buyers in the best possible light. So follow the logic - if you have players that you want to sell, then you want them to look as good as possible and that is only going to be in a successful winning team. This Team is not successful, consistent or winning - who on earth would want to buy any of this lot?
We surely could have had pulis months ago instaed our dreadful board appoint the easy cheap option, regreting it now are we?????
Well those who wanted it have got it. Neyul has fallen on his sword & resigned. So who's the next victim on the managerial merry-go-round ??
That's a good start to the new year, what's coming next ?? Hucks as new boss lol, NO I THINK PHELAN AS BOSS WILL WORK !!!
Surely we need a proven manager at this level and one who knows the transfer market!!!! its warnock for me, if not we are just taking a punt on another unproven novice who can walk away when he f. things up
Seriously hope you are joking about warnock! Can't stand the man!
Whoever we get, Phelan is not the man.
Not liking warnock has nothing to do with it, if alex neil from hamilton gets the job my 15 uear ols season ticket will go straight back in the post, com eon city for f. sake!!!!!!
Warnock is a sad old man that can't last out, he's not prem standard as qpr, palace and sheff utd have found out, he's a big whinger and not the right fit for this club, there isn't an abundance of managers that would take this position and Alex Neil is an odd choice and relatively unknown south of the border!
I was right about adams, lafferty and grabban, i have a feeling i will also be proven right about this new manager, whose name i can't even remember!! unproven shot in the dark
Paul lambert was an unproven shot in the dark too, only league one experience but he got us successive promotions! I'm not saying this new lad will do the same but you just never can tell! There just isn't the pool of managerial talent out there at the mo, please for gods sake don't utter the name warnock as a contender
But lambert was a top player whom people respected, is neal??? i don't think so, i hope to be proved wrong but our board are to blame for most of our failiures. i still would have picked warnock if it were up to me as he's done it over and over again, time will tell i supose
Alan shearer was a top player, well respected but was rubbish as a manager, I think norwich are trying to be a little like Bournemouth in getting a young hungry manager, it may not work out at all, if you can think back a little warnock was just slagging us and our players off when he was qpr boss, that aside tho, the man is a scrote, so it's a big fat NO from me to sign up warnock
Warnock was outspoken, i like people who speak thier mind, just because he slagged us does not make him wrong. i would have gone for him as he knows what he's talking about. i hope neal does turn out well, if not where do we go from there??? get rid of the board ??
Lets await the glut of second rate scottish players coming our way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't care where new players come from as long as they put the effort in that's been lacking in recent weeks! Of course we all want to sign messi but let's look at realistic targets! The mans hardly stepped foot in the door, I for one am slightly bemused by this appointment but am going to wait a few games and let the change take shape before casting doubt on his ability to sign players!
Messt?? do we??? just don't want to be full of hamilton players
I don't think we would be signing all the accies players!! We have a good squad, they're just inconsistent and maybe a couple of new faces might help but let the man work first before casting doubt, if it all falls flat then you can sleep well knowing you were right but for now it's a new start and we can but hope that it's the right move from the board, a hungry manager wanting to prove himself can't be all bad !!
02 Jan 2015 12:14:07
Really ? another pub player lol
I watched him play in the Celtic game and I was surprised by just how good he was and if he puts in those performances week in week out I'd happily pay 3 million for him his finishing was quality he had 5 shots in total 5 on target 2 goals against the best team he can play against in his league can't knock that
29 Dec 2014 17:13:39
Defo interest, but nothing has been signed; fact!
John's form this season hasn't warranted interest from Premiership clubs, he's suffering from (yet again), poor centre backs in front of him. He'll still be here next season.
29 Dec 2014 12:41:13
A new manager is all we need
You'll get him soon.
29 Dec 2014 11:33:10
27 Dec 2014 10:38:48
Yep, agree, can't be coinsidence can it??? maybe save a wage and egt rid of adams
ADAMS SAYS WE SHOULD NEVER LOSE TO A TEAM LIKE READING AND THEY DO US TWICE!!! STUPID THING TO SAY FORM A NOVICE MANAGER, ADAMSOUT!!!!!!!!
I've heard a few thinks about Adams comments this season, you would have thought he would know a little bit about manners and general attitude, he's not Jose for crying out loud, and being as ex player you would have thought he would have known better to say we shouldn't loose to whoever only inspires the opponents
16 Dec 2014 19:51:35
One season wonder very very overated player
Disagree, made a big difference for West Ham vs Norwich, but a shame he's such a horrible person
Leave well alone, bad apple, bad attitude
He couldn't sort him out at man utd, what makes now any different.
No doubts about the players talents but football is a team game and this guy has the wrong attitude which seems to be part of his character and not just youthful folly which some had hoped.
14 Dec 2014 10:44:16
Have we got 15m spare
It won't happen.
It will happen
10 Dec 2014 11:46:00
Yeah mate its happening sadly, got a mate who works at Everton and he said deals already done. A sad day for Norwich City fans.
Hmmm. My mate from Liverpool says that £8million makes him a RED, not a blue. - But then Palace are supposedly after him too. Thing is, John is a proud man, and he certainly isn't going to want to go to Everton (especially) or anywhere else, just to be a bench warmer. (again)
Personally can't see him going anywhere at least until the close season depending on whether Norwich are a Championship or Premiership side.
23 Nov 2014 17:25:59
15 m and I would as we have the murphy bros and phelan would then have the money to sort out the mess adams has put us in when he gets sacked
Take the ten million he can't shoot and. cant. score one goal in over 50 games
If they need someone to drive him to merseyside and collect the cash I've got a couple of days off in january
Get rid, over rated, over paid, he's crossed maybe 2 times this season
Couldnt agree more, he's not worth whatever we are paying him, how many games do we give a player before he plays well, sell grabban aswell if poss
Oh and lafferty!!!
Redmond i not worth a place on the bench he can't shoot and an pass waste of time as far as i am concerned saw jerome on the 6 30 train out of norwich tonight he looked like he didn't have a care in the world never mind a s*** game of ball
I agree that Norwich should sell Redmond for around 15 million because they would be making profit from 2-3 million.
I still think Elliott Bennett is the better bet, cross's are better, score and more of a team player, so if Redmond does leave I wouldn't be too worried.
21 Nov 2014 16:23:32
Id sell him for less than 10, he's great for england but hit and miss for us, the odd good cross should not put us cashing in for 10m !!!!!!
19 Nov 2014 17:40:38
I would personally love that but he's on 60k at city. Surely that's out of our depth
It isn't the forward line that's the problem, we've no steel at the back and if any body tells me Ryan Bennett is the answer, God help us !
13 Nov 2014 17:56:23
I have a transfer a replacement midfielder because of olija
Hucks, fleck, Roberts, eadie and anyone else who has HEART
Hucks is rubbish
Maybe a new manager, before its too late.
Lafferty to be sold, as he is incapable of playing football
If he was played as an out n out, target man as he is for Ireland, then he would score goals
27 Oct 2014 09:20:47
He is still here tacking the money and he even scored in a cup. game
He was terrible in the game against Crawley, would rather Miquel, but think Martin is just at CB to organise cause when he's a rb he up the park a lot.
Well cuelar is clearly worth a shot then. the rest are an abortion, promotion my a. at the other end it takes on averege 35 attempts on goel to score, groundhog day, ADAMS OUT!!
City are crap and will be as long as we suffer a rubbish manager, good players, good squad rubbish everything else, adams out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i posted months ago about lafferty being a joke of a footballer to a lot of arguments, hows about an argument now then??????? he's a sack of.
I hope if Adams does go then he can return to his previous job, would be a real shame to lose him completely
I would agree with that, he was good at that level, looks out of his depth now though
We need to stop buying players who are at the end of their careers they have no drive and nothing to prove- Cuellar, Hooveld. Also we seem to have completely missed out on bringing in loan players?What!!!
03 Sep 2014 20:00:37
01 sep 2014 21:22:22
Have I gone mad, or do we suddenly have 6 CB's not including Bassong?
01 Sep 2014 14:57:03
If Redmond goes let's try and get Ben Arfa or sako from wolves
Palace now chasing Kevin Doyle and Southampton are chasing Mane, so for the moment it looks like Hooper and Redmond are staying.
Sir an reported at deans court for medical!. he's going.
01 Sep 2014 12:43:20
That one's not Happening now.
Sky said that's not happening anymore.
01 Sep 2014 12:38:26
31 Aug 2014 19:44:52
Surman to Bournemouth may well happen, contract ends at the end of the season and despite being offered new deal, has not signed. Also not been involved since entering discussions over new deal, I think that says it all.
31 Aug 2014 18:19:06
Problem for me is, we had a solid CB in Dani Ayala and sold him. I know Miquel is younger but from what I've seen atm I think Ayala is better
Oh you think so? Just take a look at the arsenal page to see what their fans think of him being sold to us
29 Aug 2014 20:04:38
Vadis and Conor McGrandles revealed today at the Bournemouth game, got a great reception as you would expect from the City faithful!
29 Aug 2014 16:09:41
Very happy with this one, only thing is do you think he's a replacement for howson?
Replacement for leroy fer, howson is injured and won't play for a little while more yet, just a couple of defenders and keep hooper and I'd say that's a pretty damn good squad to challenge for promotion OTBC
He's a replacement for Fer, don't get too excited
Great signing so was the wolf//////turned out to be rubbish. don't build your hopes up to soon lo
Have you quite finished being negative? Great signings! OTBC!
