Something exciting happened today..

Well, comparatively speaking given the general lack of excitement in the world of Forest news.  However, if you click on the NewsNow link, Forest have been magically moved from the League One news feed into the Championship one.  It’s little things like this, and when we move into the Championship section on the BBC football site, that make things seem more real – things that made me thoroughly depressed when we left that league!

Simple things please simple minds; and it’s a good job, because there’s been no real developments at all on our bid to bring Earnshaw to the City Ground, nor on the opposite move of Kris Commons.  Lots of rumours, of course, ranging from ‘they’re done deals‘ to ‘he’s off to Stoke really‘ (Commons) or ‘he failed his medical at Derby!‘  It’s an absolutely infuriating time of year for this; seemingly everyone and his dog knows somebody ‘in the know’, yet despite these all these contacts seem to know something different!

Something of genuine interest to Reds fans is Forest’s release of a DVD of the final game of the season, which includes such treats as commentary by the BBC Radio Nottingham team of Colin Fray and John McGovern, including plenty of footage of the ensuing celebrations.  So I’m told, anyway, I’ve yet to avail myself of a copy, but will be doing next time I have a chance to pop down to the City Ground.  You can also buy it from the Forest website should you so wish, for the reasonable sum of just £8.

Hopefully they’ve overlaid any footage of Commons with a big black box (he says jokingly, I’d quite like to see that goal again, to be fair).

The only other news of late reported in the world of the official Forest site are a couple of job opportunities to either be an Account Manager, whatever that is, in the Corporate Sales team, as well as a role to do with Forest World – which appeals massively to me, although I don’t doubt that a combination of my lack of expertise in media things as well as the likelihood of Forest paying peanuts would preclude me from even considering pursuing it!

I’ve not watched anything on Forest World for a long time, long since having had my free year’s subscription (which lasted about 3 years!) expire on me – my memories of it weren’t particularly great, hence not paying up to renew it; particularly pertinent given Virgin Media showing footage of goals online within a few days of our games now too.
