With games coming thick and fast Ollie will be rotating the squad so I don't see a problem with having more than 5 loans.

Makes sense, if you’re going to be playing 3 forwards for 90 mins running around doing a high press, to have a squad capable of doing it Sat-Tues-Sat-Tues all the way through to Christmas.

He’s obviously got something about him & can probably trap and pass a ball if he’s been at Forest u23s, which is a sight more than a lot of forwards we’ve had in the past.

Good luck to him.

Quoted from BottesfordMariner
I am a bit puzzled by this signing. And it doesnt fit in with what Holloway said earlier in the week.

I welcome the lad and wish him well. But we have signed a few young unproven forwards in this window. Holloway said he wanted a goalscorer...a guy with a proven track record of scoring goals. Someone to rely on. Yet he signs yet another young unproven player just like the others. Quick look on wiki shows he's scored 1 goal in just under 30 professional appearances. Not quite the proven goalscorer we need.

I am baffled.

Ollie explains his reasoning here:


I'm a bit baffled by this signing too. We have loads of young strikers on the books now and of the three we have actually signed to contracts, only Gibson has had any game time yet.

Just have to trust the management on this one.

I think signing loan players is quite sensible in the current situation. Less players on the books if the season gets canceled

That’s right Swin. We can’t be relying on young unproven forward players like Edwards, Tilley and Windsor to be scoring goals for us.

No you're absolutely right, we can't rely on them and if they do start scoring regularly week in week out we won't need all the unproven, unfit because they only trained once a week and have barely played a league game strikers Holloway seems to be amassing.anyway

And if the three you mention, with a goal each at the moment, suddenly stop scoring goals all the unproven, unfit because they only trained once a week and have barely played a league game strikers aren't going to be the ones we can confidently fall back on either

I had in mind an experienced striker as in Hanson (but not permanently injured, can actually run a bit and is without a club so won't want Hansonlike wages)

Well I did try to tell you all Holloway was a mistake

Not the worst idea to bring in these lads on loan as with the packed fixtures and injuries we'll probably need to rotate and have people who are ready to slot in and play how we need them to play. Not really all that interested in his past record, will judge him on what he delivers for us. Always feel like people put too much on a past record when we've had players who did well for us after not exactly setting the world alight elsewhere. Maybe sometimes it gets proven correct and they don't deliver here either but I'm going to give everyone who joins this team support and the chance to do the business on the pitch as I do think we have players capable of making things happen. It just depends if they want it enough or not and if we give them the right coaching and motivation.

Jackson gets a brace and sets one up in the reserves and can’t even get on the bench. Poor sodomist
