During his playing days, Holt was the epitome of the ball-winning, box-to-box midfielder. A combative steeliness, augmented by a desire to push play forward and support the attacking players in the side.
After that first game at Wolves I was feeling pretty negative about all things Norwich City. We always start poorly and even taking into account the red card we were pretty dire. Neil disagreed.
Night matches at Carrow Road are always occasions to be savoured and the fixture against Blackburn was no different. That game asked some serious questions of the desire running through City’s veins and backed by a wall of noise generated by the Yellow Army two late goals proved enough for a yellow and green victory.
