Matt Jarvis


#1

Former Wolves, West ham and current Norwich winger has joined on loan till the end of the season. Personally id say its a decent signing if he is fit and able after his injury problems the past few years


#2

I’d echo those statements - only if he is fit and over his injury problems. 21 games since September 2015 isn’t a good recent track record.


#3

A really experienced player. That should help us but lets hope he is fitter than his Norwich teammate! Welcome to Walsall Matt…


#4

Hasn’t played much in 3 years… if we can get him fit he’ll be decent, but I hope we’re not wasting much budget on someone who might not get fit…


#5

Am I missing something here?
A 32 year old that hasn’t played for 2 years?
Described as a massive coup!


#6

I read a piece the other day where he was saying he was over his injuries and ready to play again. If true what a signing for this division.

Good signing if fit . Let’s hope he is and is also allowed to play in the cup tie at Bolton.


#9

Decent signing. Pleased with this.


#10

He hasn’t played a first team game since May 2016. It will be the end of the season before he’s properly match fit.


#11

Yeh, coup isnt the word I’d use


#12

A fit Matt Jarvis would be the best winger we’ve had for some time.


#13

Rubbish signing … hope I’m proven wrong, but with replaced a fit young reliable player with a 32 year old who hasn’t played for years!

Walsall Fans are easily pleased!


#14

Let’s give him a chance before we all criticise.


#15

This (from Wikipedia) I find promising:

“In his first season (at West Ham), he attempted the most open-play crosses in the Premier League, 171, and was successful with 42 of them, also the highest in the Premier League.”


#16

Aren’t you confusing the word criticise with comment?


#17

Criticism of the club and the signing they have made .Good coup in my opinion sure this man can cross a ball for Cookie .


#18

Let’s give the dingle ■■■■■■ a chance before we all jump in with the recycled negative comments.


#19

I’m interested to understand what makes you think he’s a good coup , when he’s not fit?


#20

Well there’s the service Cook has needed :blush:
