From before the final whistle of our 2-0 victory over Aston Villa, almost all coverage and ‘news’ regarding the canaries has been based on speculation and rumour. Lambert’s future was the focus for the early part of last week, without a conclusive statement confirming his plans to stay on the rumour mill went into overdrive. Again though, this was based on speculation and conjecture. Some fans were drawing up lists of people taking over from the soon to be departed boss. others far more sensibly, albeit probably more out of hope than genuine expectation simply saw it as Lambert being Lambert, giving less than nothing away and strengthening his position with every word uttered.
From Lambert we moved on to the Euro 2012 squad announcement, John Rudy being named in the squad was fantastic news, John is there on merit based on his appearances this season. Hodgson for me got his goalkeepers spot on. I am though unsure of whether our number one is ready to be a starting international goalkeeper. The experience of a going to a major tournament will be invaluable, but I for one hope he watches from the bench. His time hopefully to come in the future.
