    To be honest I'd rather we sign Mowatt if we're interested, always liked him. However it's also probably out of ignorance considering I've never seen this lad play.

    Cue people being upset that we didn’t sign a player we probably never bid on.

    I'd be more annoyed if we didn't bid.

    It's alright, we can just sign a midfielder because he is a midfielder. No need to identify certain requirements the squad needs & match that to a player. #TheForestWay

    We were never in for him, we don't start looking until the 31st.

    I'm always amazed that people know everything going on in the club and even more amazed that we don't buy every player rumoured to be available for transfer.

    Of course, it might be that I don't understand the sarcasm dripping from the posts and for that I apologise.

    I’ve had a few games against FC Kebap in my time, I always won but at great cost.

    Gone to PNE. Looked to have been an affordable one.

    I'd rather sign Mowatt, he's proven quality at this level. I've seen a fair bit of him having a Barnsley supporting family and he's exactly what we need. £1.5M would almost certainly secure him.

    Ben Whiteman has already given Preston North End something they were lacking

    His touch is sharp, his footballing intelligence is obvious and his wide range of passing has been seen already.

    But it has been the other parts of his game that have been equally as captivating.

    Without going off on too much of a tangent, Whiteman's personality just seems tailor-made for a North End player.

    Grounded, determined, ambitious, aggressive, passionate, confident - and most importantly a leader.

    His celebration following Lucas Joao's penalty miss was everything and more that supporters want to see and in every game so far, Whiteman's vocal nature on the pitch has been constant throughout.

    The 24-year-old is always barking orders, offering encouragement and giving advice during matches and his awareness of what's going on around him is a huge asset.

    "Yours Browney, win it Browney, go and win it skipper." was heard as a throw-in was taken midway through last weekend's game.

    1.5m

    Less than Jenks
    Less than Da Costa
    Half what Soudani cost
    8 times less than Carvalho
    Etc.



    If EM harbours any genuine ambition of ever making the Prem, he can't continue to have us missing out on players like this at that price.

    That must've taken some wit to come up with.

    No offence was intended mate. It just becomes tiring reading constant negativity on here.

    My problem, not yours.

    Absolutely, but it needs to be reflected on the first team otherwise what's the point? Apart from the financial lifeline of course.

    Ok, I'm on it. In the meantime, I'll leave you and others wallow in the negativity.

    No, tend to get to ground too late, straight from work, park up and straight in. Usually have a pint in the club next to the ground after. Lovely little stadium, fair priced chip cob and a coffee too

    Sitting behind the dugout, listening to the coaches, Cohen before he left instructing players.

    Ah, to have the opportunity to be there again. Friggin pandemic

    Chips and gravy a great treat there. The caterers at the City Ground should nip down and see how tasty food can be served up.
