Danns to get another chance to reject Forest!

Seemingly many-times Forest target Neil Danns is apparently set to part company with Birmingham City.  So that means people will once again think we’re going to try to sign him.  I hope we don’t, he demonstrated aptitude at this level for Colchester but hasn’t exactly set the world alight since moving to Brum for £500k.

Plus we’re not exactly short on midfield options, particularly being linked to a lad from Luton Town – Dave Edwards.  Whilst there’s always room to add some quality to the squad in any area (particularly players who can play out wide in midfield!), I’m not sure signing two players in this ilk would be sensible, given that we could really use some more depth upfront.

But enough of this speculation – the cast iron, bona fide, definite bad news emanating from fortress City Ground is that Kelvin Wilson has picked up a thigh strain and missed training today.  This results in him having a question mark over him in regard to playing against Port Vale at the weekend, with Wes Morgan standing by to deputise.

For me, Kelvin Wilson – along with Smithy of course – is the reason we have the stingiest defence in the league, conceding only 12 goals all season (in the league), largely thanks to combinations of Smith’s great shot-stopping, as well as Kelvin’s assured play in the centre of defence.  So if he’s missing, whilst I like Wes, he will be a big miss.

To return to subject, now I’ve been all cynical and scathing I bet we end up luring Danns to join us now.  If so, welcome aboard, Neil! 😆
