East Anglian Angling Club

So Norwich are fishing for Fraser Forster on loan again. Hardly surprising, given that during his 38 games between the sticks for the Canaries he was instrumental in their promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking - or that they don't have anyone else with any reasonable experience at the club.

All the same, manager Paul Lambert's comments - "I've spoken to Newcastle's manager Chris Hughton numerous times but we'll have to wait and see" - suggest a reluctance on our part to let him go out on loan again. You have to wonder why this might be, with Steve Harper almost certain to be first choice and a very able deputy in Tim Krul waiting in the wings - but perhaps Hughton feels we need to have significant cover in case of injury.

What seems certain, though, is that we won't be selling Forster - and, in view of his performances for the Carrow Road outfit last season, that seems like a sensible course of action.
