St Patricks Day
Another signing of a player I've never heard off, let alone seen - life in the Fizzies eh? Patrick McCarthy, also cleverly known as Paddy (he must be Irish then) was signed today from Leicester for £650,000. The Leicester fans' websites I have just glimpsed were not too complimentary but those little foxes always did have ideas above their stations - Upton Park 1992 anyone?
The 24-year old appears to be a bit of a hot-head collecting 7 yellows and a red last season, him and Simon Walton will get on well, but despite that he was Leicester's skipper last term. Stories of Matt Holland going the other way initially seem unfounded.
"He has all the right attributes and that fact he was captain of Leicester City shows he is a leader and proven at Championship level."
When is someone, other than an ill-informed journo, going to tell us who is leaving?
