Probably been mentioned a few times but Calderwood is now number two at Carrow Road and had a big falling out with Holt at Forest, surely adding more feeling to his desire to leave. Found the story on Forest message boards and some striking similarities with the case here currently. I found the closing comments about Holts ability at the end of the post amusing!He was disappointed not to be first choice at the start of Colin Calderwood''s reign in 2006-2007 (though he found himself called from the bench within 3 minutes of the start of the season when Nathan Tyson was injured), and spent a period when his heart didn''t seem entirely in it. This didn''t manifest itself on the field of play, particularly - Holt only seems to know one way to play, which is whole-heartedly - but in the fact that he asked to be informed if any other club made enquiries. Bristol City duly did so at Christmas 2006 and it looked as though he''d be off, but at the last minute he declined the move, citing the fact that his wife was settled in Nottingham. None the less, by now the perception had arisen that either the club didn''t want him or he was looking for an exit, or possibly both; he duly submitted a transfer request in the Summer of 2007... which was promptly rejected. The reality seems to be that he had a role to play but couldn''t expect to be automatic first choice when everyone was fit and available. For a while Holt seemed happy with that. The 2007-2008 Season was in marked contrast, however. Colin Calderwood had the side playing a 4-3-3 (or 4-5-1, depending on how optimistic you were feeling) formation, with Holt frequently tried in a wide forward role in which he was, frankly, pants. His star waned and he became mardy (take your pick about the order in which this happened). The crisis point arrived in March 2008, when Holt and Junior Agogo were hauled off at half time after an abject 45 minutes at Roots Hall - the fact that they were (successfully) replaced by the teenage Matt Thornhill and a 60% fit Nathan Tyson tells you how poorly they''d been playing. Rumours abounded of Holt trying to hit the manager on the training field, though these have never been substantiated - and Holt was out on loan at Blackpool within days. In the summer of 2008 he signed for League 2''s Shrewsbury Town, thus returning to his true level; even a fit and interested Grant Holt (something Forest fans hadn''t seen for the best part of a season before his departure) was never going to be good enough for the Championship.
