    According to Dougie, he needs to learn how to breathe through his mouth and nose, not his eyes. When he manages that, I'm sure he will be a very fine forward.

    He reminds me of David McGoldrick at a similar age.

    Great goal, the more I watch it the more I like it.

    Comparably to the likes of Newbold, Weir-Daley, Freeman, Rodney and Emile Sinclair he looks above them. Seen him a few times now and what strikes me is his composure and poise, maybe it runs in the family. For a young lad getting his first few starts he's not running about all over the place trying to make an impression. Most like Bamford from what I've seen.
    And it's incredibly refreshing to hear he has a good character which seems to chime with what Freedman is looking for. Good characters who are eager to learn and adapt. Good stuff.

    I love hearing that he's a young lad with his head screwed on, willing to listen and soak up information like a sponge. Rather than thinking he knows it all.

    For all those people that think young footballers are just interested in money, fame, women and flash cars, this lad is a welcome exception.

    To be honest. One of the things I've always respected about Forest development at the academy is that it is not just about the player but we produce good human beings with a bit of brains too.

    I always prefer youngsters to be technically there, rather than physically. If a youngster is only in the team on there physicality it never ends well in my opinion. Walker is good with the ball, and I'm hopeful for the lad.

    I just hope expectations don't rise too much because of the goal he scored, will take him a long time before he's at the level of the likes of Assombalonga, Fryatt or Blackstock yet.

    He's in very good hands with Dougie though, as are all our young players.

    You're spot on. Micah Richards was said to have the athletic ability to compete at a young age but in the end the guy got so big he could barely run anymore. There's a fine line between being solid and carrying a little too much muscle.

    Really pleased with how he took his goal, which could really spur him on going into the final few games of this season which pretty much have no real use now beyond getting players like him experience.

    I think Freedman saying all that about Walker may have put a lot of pressure on the young lad, just hope he don't turnout to be another McGugan.

    An established Championship player with 10+ goals a season in him from midfield? I would take that.

    Peter Beagrie says Tony Woodcock but I don't agree with that. Woodcock was like a little energizer bunny with quick one-twos and running in behind defences.

    Think Steve Hodge describes him perfectly and it is no surprise as he coached the 16s until his son was released and Tyler was in the group below that & played up with Worrall, Burke, Thomas & Walton.


    “I saw this kid play in the academy four or five years ago,”. “He was always good at holding the ball up, laying the ball off, he was never the quickest player in the world as a striker. He will be judged over the years if he can score a goal or not…

    “He did it (hold the ball well) at 13, 14. The thing he had in his locker was backing into people. He always had a good touch and could see people around him. That will certainly be his asset.

    “He will never be running into channels and beating people with a quick run and quick stepovers. He certainly is a player who backs into people, lays the ball off and gets into the box to finish whenever he can.”

    Sounds more akin to a Dexter Blackstock-type player then?

    Which is no bad thing, the way Dougie likes to play.

    When I think of him v Dex it doesn't stick to me no. He has enough pace to run onto the ball but it isn't a necessary strength and I would say aerially he isn't as good as Dex & I don't think Dex has his shooting power with both feet.

    Trying to think of who he could be classed as.

    There was a game recently where Tyler dropped deep & played that deeper role but while I think he has the ability to be a creative spark, there is still a long way to equal Nigel there.

    Walker this moment is more of a centre-forward.

    Nigel probably did his best work facing goal so he could see where that next move will be because he had eyes at the back of his head from what was coming from behind him

    Tyler has scored twice on his England U20 debut. Nice!
