I’m reliably informed that upon getting kitted up having signed for Forest, somebody had to sheepishly go and pick up some junior sized socks from the club shop for Alan Wright to wear! I know it’s childish to find such stories so amusing, but it’s still tickled me a bit. Maybe this is the true meaning of a “blow your socks off” signing? Or perhaps at least a “laugh your socks off” one!
Jokes aside though, small in stature or otherwise, Wrighty massively exceeded my expectations yesterday, and if he maintains that level of performance during the Cheltenham game then I can see Julian having a battle on his hands to win his place back in the side – maybe not a “blow your socks off” signing in the conventional sense, but certainly given the dissenting voices when it was announced, it seems that Smoulds knows better than some of us!
