    The other bit from that Tails report is that we're looking for players with a passing instinct and relays an anecdote from yesterday's game where Hugton, Trollope and Reid were screaming for plays to pass the ball rather than lingering on it.

    EXACT SAME BENEFITS

    Default Ben Whiteman

    Would be very pleased to add him to the list of Forest players I’ve started threads for.

    Passing does help a lot. Especially if you pass it to a player better than you are.

    Good to hear. We desperately need an injection of quality there, for all the stick Hughton is getting about our style of play a lot of that stems from our midfield being so poor in that regard; full of battlers (like Sow and Yates) but lacking in players who are comfortable with the ball and capable of passing.

    Bring in a midfielder who can remedy that and a winger with decent delivery, and I think that we will improve considerably.

    Highest number of interception in league one this season. Exactly the type of midfielder we need

    He’s also got highest number of forward passes in league one I believe.

    Can also play as the deep playmaker (like Watson) or further up in a box to box role, where be scores goals because he strikes the ball very well.

    I hope this one happens.

    I thought he might have made a move for Dale Stephens at Burnley but White man sounds like a similar type player an probably a lot more affordable.

    I would also tell Stevie Reid to pull his boots back on coz he couldn't do any worse than Arter or Colback

    a player that can read the game well enough to make those interception won't lose the ability to do so no matter the level. we need someone like him in midfield and able wingers. we must have the worse set of wingers ever in this league. Every week , i see our wingers struggling to beat a single defender and loses the ball constantly and yet , they kept getting picked.

    Pity that Joe Lolley can't find that burst of pace and trickery that had the opposition doubling up on him like he did a year or two ago.
    I'm not sure he'll ever get back to that now.

    It would make a change from “failed the eyesight test” following the medical.

    I think a large part of us looking like a slow team is because we are so slow at moving the ball, opposed to having slow players. We have quick players in wide areas going forward and back, we just take ages to move the ball.

    I would suggest that every side in the Championship has a faster wide player than Lolley and Ameobi, many have two. A lack of pace to get in behind teams has hindered us for a long while now.

    I agree, the last players we had with wheels were Diakhaby & Mendes, I reckon it would be an understatement to suggest neither could back it up with an end product.

    If Hughton wants to pass the ball, we firstly need to identify a lack of creative passing, proficiency on the half turn & any kind of delivery from out wide.

    Mendes wasnt that fast Hildeberto the season after had some real pace though, shame he was insane.

    Mendes wasn't bad. I'd suggest he created more, and scored more, than our two main wide players this season.

    Hildeberto was brilliant, just completely crazy as gamble (sic) points out.

    I recall Bertos debut, twice he got pulled up for a foul throw-in.

    Scored a great goal against Brum i think.

    One of my favourite players for Forest simply because you were guarenteed something happening (good or bad) when he played and played football like he was a dog being let off his lead in a field.

    He is playing in China now.

    Grosicki has always been pretty quick. Expect that not to be the case once we sign him on a 8 year deal, obviously.

    And if it could occasionally be to a teammate that’s also a bonus

    I fucking loved Berto. Remember that mazy run against Villa that Lansbury finished like it happened yesterday. What a player when he was on song.

    On that video I must admit I feel bad, that wanker tried to tee off a head but against him then went down like a sack of shit

    Apparently having a medical at PNE for 1.5m. What a missed opportunity.

    Don‘t worry, Forest will atone by signing some no-mark defensive midfielder that nobody has ever heard of, who once played a couple of games for Olympiakos in a preseason Tournament against FC Kebap.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”
