Tbh I think he'd be an OK signing, but the fact that we would have Heskey at the club would be embarrassing.
Now Owen has been released by ManUre so they can reignite their prolific (!) partnership at some lower league club. There is a treatment room somewhere with their names on it.
Of course Owen still has enough to play in the Premier League...
...for about two weeks, until he gets injured again, probably for months.

Sums him up!
A slightly better, Premiership, version of Dele Adebola in his prime, he would probably be very effective in the Championship.
If someone needed a Heskey type player they needn't look any further than Adebayo Akinfemwa from Notrthampton. He possesses all the qualities that Heskey has and he can put the ball in the net aswell scoring 18 goals for Northampton this season! Plus he'd be on considerably lower wages than Heskey. We don't need a player like this at the moment though, as Blackstock has enough strength upfront.
we don't want anyone with IVANHOE as a middle name
Drogba is leaving Chelsea - any links with Forest, or his middle name Ivanhoe?
EDIT: just checked: no links with Forest (yet), but his middle name is Yves - I don't think I' bend down to pick up Yves' soap in the shower after the game thank you very much!

Drogba is off to China to team up with his old strike-partner Nico Anelka in Shanghai.
In the old days he would have gone to USA to pick up mega-bucks and be adored as a fabulous star.
Nowadays, like in many walks of life, the big money and the more rabid fan base is in China.
He will adored as a God; he will earn so much he will be more minted than anyone else (other than Beckham) and he will not be watched for signs of decline...

Just heard Forest are considering approaching Emile Heskey. #NFFC
No thanks, next....
