    If it's in the Daily Mirror then it has to be true

    We all know Tyson's strengths and weaknesses yet to trade him in along with 500 big ones for someone who has only himself scored one goal for Coventry this season is not great business in my mind.

    We need to add to our squad, not replace.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    True but if Tyson leave for nowt in the summer we will have to replace him anyway - at least this way we have a replacement. Even if he goes in Jan we would only get a nominal fee.

    Leon Best with just one goal to his name this season?

    Why would we give them someone equally as good and then throw is some cash as well.

    This is nonsense

    Smacks of lazy journalism to me; I can't see us getting £500k and no player for Tys given that his contract is up soon and he's not exactly on form anyway.

    Best is well known as a target for Forest, so I suppose if Chaventry want rid of him and have decided Tys is their man, maybe it's not too ridiculous. If Best too is out of contract in the summer, it might explain a few things...

    It must be true. Apparently Tyson just bought a luxury semi-detached council house in Bedworth (Cov way). And Best axed his mate Deano in Hyson Green if he can kip on his sofa for a fortnight in case it all goes Pete Tong. If it does go ok he'll move into Curb's new place at Cropwell Bishop.

    Oh for fucks sake. Here we go again. Leon fucking Best.

    Cue interest in Neil Danns any day soon.

    Bugger. That will teach me to read the (now deleted) Vital Forest article which wrongly claimed that the deal was that WE get £500k and Leon Best for Tyson.

    D'oh!

    Based on what I saw at Coventry he looks better than Tyson. He was a threat but was nowhere near worth £1.2m in my eyes.

    Tyson alone for Best would be a really good deal in our favour. I do think that adding a big £500k aswell is a bit extreme though.

    Didn't he come on as a sub at Coventry? So you're prepared to judge him as better based on less than 90 minutes of football?

    If Tyson isn't going to sign a new contract then I'd do the deal.

    When you consider we bid £1.5m for Best last Jan, then getting rid of soon to be free agent + £500k would be a decent bit of business, plus he's the type of forward we could do with.

    Coventry as a team weren't very threatening in the second half, and Best certainly wasn't. Though it may have been him who had that one shot but even Tyson would have got that on target - it fell to his feet in the middle of the area!

    And he can't even in the team ahead of Clinton Morrison, which says a lot to me
