Pretty good goalscoring record (24 goals in 56 games), albeit at a lower level.

Are you daring to doubt Mr Lambert?

How true the story is remains to be seen, but a Uni flat mate of mine who is from Cambridge has informed me that you probably won''t find a more prolific striker at his current level but doubt he has what it takes to play in league one, and more than likely the championship next season...

Wouldnt make a lot of sense given that we already have 2 raw and promising strikers in McDonald and Johnson.

Where on earth has this come from?

I cover Cambridge United for BBC Cambridgeshire. We haven''t reported this at all. Holroyd failed to agree terms with Brighton... but the deal could be back on again.

Good to see the old favorite whingers coming back and slating of the signings. I bet he loves the fact that we sign lower league players so he can have a whinge.

Lambert clearly does not thin Cody is good enough or he would not have signed Oli another unproven player and put him ahead of Cody in the pecking order , these players are good enough as back up in League 1 but would be out of their depth in the Championship and Holt and Martin will struggle at that level too .

[quote]Holt and Martin will struggle at that level too .[/quote]They won''t break records in the championship, but they would probably get 20-30 goals between them.  Didn''t Martin score 9 goals in 9 games for us in the championship >  I like the way he places his shots, passes them into the goal.  Whether he would get the time to do that in the championship, there''s only one way to find out.  I think Holt would do ok in the championship too - all he has to do is get into position, and either head the ball or win the free-kick.  How does that differ from now ?  The problem could be the midfield in the championship, getting the service to the forwards, winning the ball to "earn the right to play", as someone once said.

We''ll see about that.

I think the reason they have so many goals is a lot to do with the service they receive, I think that may be what is less effective in the Championship, Martin and Holt''s ability to hit the net once the opportunity arises can''t be questioned in my opinion.

holt is about the same standard as beckford ,beckford scored against spurs  and manchester united .

holt is good enough for the championship ,he is strong and a goal poucher .. so is martin ,martin has a great future ahead of him if he carries on the work rate he has over the last couple of seasons .

FFS i am not making it up holroyd will go to peterborough not us, im not one of these people that come on here to stir things up. The person who originally set up this thread is making it up thats why i replied.

I dont normally post stuff on here just like to get peoples opinions on things by viewing different threads but i can certainly say that holroyd is not coming to us.

He ain''t going to Norwich. And he ain''t good enough for Norwich. He''s got genuine weaknesses in his game and Cambridge are eager to cash in...

You underrate the boy Martin mate. Perhaps you''ve already forgotten the goals he scored in The Championship when only 17? Sure he then went off the rails but now seems to have begun maturing and I''m sure will score goals in the next league up. You hype up The Championship - I lost count of the number of absolute garbage games I watched in the last 3-4 seasons in that league. Some good sides towards the top I''ll admit but the bottom half is pretty mediocre.

If you are so in the know, what was the problem with Brighton''s offer? And don''t just come back with he wants to join Pboro.

There are quotes from the Cambridge manager saying there aren''t other clubs in for him, but he could leave on loan the week after next.
