Introducing... Campo and Volzy

The first in a series of catch-up posts. Since I last posted anything of note, we've brought in more players - Ben Thatcher, Iván Campo and Moritz Volz. I'll gloss over the former, as I don't like the idea of cheerimg anyone with that surname. Campo was a cult hero at Bolton, for his hairstyle as much as his ability. Primarily a defensive midfielder, he can also play in defence. I'm guessing that's where Jim Magilton will deploy him, as we already have a surfeit of midfielders. But then, that was the case before we signed David Norris...

And today, the club announced the loan signing of West London-based German cycling legend Moritz Volz. Also, a cult hero at Fulham, Volzy is a right back, who can play elsewhere in defence and also in midfield. David Wright with a personality then. Volzy's signing, and Ben Thatcher being given the 33 shirt, suggest that Thatcher is cover, and is aware of it. Not a bad thing. As long as Volzy and Campo can adjust to the quieter Suffolk life, I think they'll both be successes. And Volzy has already suggested swapping his folding pushbike for a tractor. He might be better off swapping his website's theme tune.

Campo and Volzy do sound like characters from Last of the Summer wine so I think they should settle into Suffolk life quite easily.

I do like the fact that Volz is 22 and Thatcher 33. It makes me feel like at least one club hasn't forgotten that 3 means left back and 2 means right back.

Althogh you would think that they would have given Thatcher the vacant number 3 shirt, if that was the case...
