Anderson loan completed..

As the tempers fray around the internet, and as Forest fans get increasingly despondant, Forest have been quietly going about their business to redress the balance of incomings and outgoings so far this summer – and have pulled off quite a coup in doing so.  Paul Anderson has agreed to a season-long loan from Liverpool, opting to join the Reds rather than Swansea City, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell last season.

He fits with Forest’s fixation on young players, and is also relatively local – hailing from Melton Mowbray, so in a way we’ve replaced somebody with a pie fixation for somebody who hails from the town of pies!  Certain an impact player in midfield which is something we’ve craved particularly with the absence of Commons, although despite capable of operating on either flank he’s primarily considered to be a right winger as far as I can make out.

Checking out some Liverpool site previews (which leaves a bad taste, but after all, they did loan him to us!) suggests that he’s hoped to be a breakthrough player in their first team – of course, those who remember Michael Stewart will remember United hoped similar things for him; but it’s a promising sign that we’re taking on a player with prospects who is very much in the mould of player type we are craving.

So well done Smoulds and co, although don’t go resting on your laurels, we need some more!!
