Surprising amounts of optimism for here over a player people have probably barely seen play, still I can't knock it, makes a refreshing change!

I would have thought most would have seen him play quite a few times for spurs and Fulham, (albeit on tv) so not exactly an unknown entity.

Scared of flying ???... Wouldn't be the first footballer to sail or drive across the continent

Was just about to post that. 

Dennis Bergkamp was the same. 

Just posted on instagram that he has landed in the UK.

This is spot on! Haha when we play 3 at the back the defence have no idea what to do or when, which flows through the entire team.

Looking at his career he seems to have only averaged playing around 50% of games a season until his most recent club Hamburg where he was a regular starter.

I thought 1st half performance defensively was good.

By estimated driving times, Holtby will be arriving at Brockhall pretty soon, within the next half hour. Hope they announce it today.

 So he's in Yorkshire - does that mean he's signing for Burnley?

Why follow Rovers if he is joining Huddersfield or Leeds? Or anyone else ? He has no link to Ewood other than what has been reported and the fact he was training with us pre season? I agree with your comment about whether he will join us though.

He's a big character on and off the field..Takes his football really seriously. A big competitor.

But also plays with a smile on his face. Enjoys his football. See HSV fans' efforts to keep him signed.

Played in the famous HSV game a couple of years ago when they won in the play-off with the last kick of the season to keep them up. They were the only team to have played in every Bundesliga season up to that point. Never relegated. The equivalent of Arsenal staying in the Premier League by the skin of their teeth.

The man was ecstatic.

An on-form, up-for-it Holtby will be a massive addition to the squad.

He's a Mowbray man. Run through a brick wall for the cause. If he believes in it. (The less said about last season the better - for all HSV fans. Sacking managers left, right and centre - They changed managers three times a season for three seasons in a row. The whole of German football laughing at the way they were run- and you thought we were bad!! 😂).

Welcome to Rovers, Lewis.
