It’s all about Darren Huckerby at the moment, and unsurprisingly so. Today’s Daily Mirror is reporting that he is wanted by Neil Warnock at Crystal Palace.
There are few things worse than imagining him:
- Playing for somebody else in England.
- Playing for a club against us next season.
If Hucks were to leave us at the end of the season to play in the MLS then you’d have to say good luck to him, but if he turned up at somewhere like Selhurst Park I for one would be absolutely gutted.
It’s hard not to wonder how much of this is his agent (Phil Smith) doing his job and trying to stir up some interest. He was quoted in the Pink’un yesterday as saying:
He was always going to be playing the season through at Norwich and nothing has changed really. Until the die is cast and we know where we’re going to be, it’s a case of waiting to hear from the club about what they have decided.
That (a move to the MLS in America) was put in a while back but until we know what’s happening at Norwich, there’s nothing to say. It’s still too early, but very soon we’ll know.
That screams out to me that the ball is well and truly in the club’s court, and that his man wants to stay. The waiting continues…
