Maybe tomorrow?..

No, I’m not breaking into the Littlest Hobo, but tomorrow does mark a deadline – if not for settling down – then certainly for loaning players.  Something we apparently want to do quite badly (despite having a considerable number of loans already).  Billy Davies has even admitted he’d like to loan Dexter Blackstock, but there are questions over whether or not the striker is up for a relegation battle with the Reds, or the risk of a permanent move that could lead to League One oblivion.

Or maybe he’ll sign, who knows?  As ever though, Forest will be leaving whatever business they hope to conclude to the very last minute – something keeping the forums rife with speculation and ‘inside information’ – most of which has proven to be wholly inaccurate – perhaps not all that surprisingly, given our experience of such matters!  It’ll be a pity if we can’t add Blackstock to the ranks, though.  He sounds like the kind of player who could be really effective with our current set up.

During this break of matches, the other ‘big news’ is that Barnsley have cunningly offered a discounted ticket price for their home support – but not extended the courtesy to Forest fans.  Ironically we did offer discounted tickets to Barnsley fans back in our league game with them.  Their excuse is the ‘suffered Burnley go half price’ offer Forest announced – which doesn’t really stack up since that is costing Forest money, not Barnsley.  It is apparently not against Football League rules, it’s just bad manners more than anything.

Forest have said they will learn from it, so expect them to work out new ways of favouring visiting fans over their own!

  1. NFFC I know this is off-topic, but is there any chance of putting our Billy up on the banner yet?

  2. If he keeps us up, he’s there – so if you’re reading Billy, that should be all the incentive you need! 😆

    Also off topic, did you all see ITV’s documentary on Brian Clough? It was really rather good.

  3. As if any of us would miss that excellent documentary NFFC! I still haven’t decided whether to watch the damned united though. Back to our current plight and it seems R’s fans dont quite agree Blackstock is the big strong striker we apparently need!

    Am I the only one who thinks surely we could find a decent strike pairing from Tyson, Earnie, McSheffrey and Garner?

    That last day of the season when all the current bottom 6 play each other could be a nightmare. Wonder what league we will be in as we calebrate the 30th anniversary of our first European Cup win?

  4. Maybe we could loan a new board…..!

  5. […] the original post on Through the seasons before […]

  6. Quite right Nick..Arthur,pleat and the other clowns taking the clubs money ALL have to go at the end of the season!!!
    Billy can then get on with his job to get us challenging for a promotion place with no excuses.. We Must win at Barnsley to give the squad confidence !!
    Pressure is on Barnsley and all the other teams so lets see who copes with it best…..

  7. Channel 442 ESPN classic, time 8 10 pm more retro forest,my god we were a good side back in the day.

  8. Blackstock has just signed on loan until the end of the season and will train with the team for the first time on Monday!

  9. Blackstock has signed on loan till the end of the season,nice one.

  10. The ‘Clough’ Documentary last night was superb, especially the moving contributions from ex players. Also it was apparent that there were difficulties in Nigel’s relationship with his old man which in hindsight is probably not surprising ???

    One thing that annoys me though, with all these tribute programs, is that not enough credit is given to the great side he built without Taylor in the late 80’s/early 90’s.
