When up in Nottingham recently I visited my barbers for a hair cut .. There was a young lad there with his dad . Noticing the chap was wearing a knee brace I asked him what he had done , to be told he had ruptured his median knee ligament playing football . Orthopaedic surgeons do not operate on this injury unlike the anterior and posterior ligaments . It's simply left to time and rest for healing to take place .. It was not until they left that my barber said " do you know who that was " ?. I honestly hadn't recognised the chap who it transpired was Jack Colback . He now lives in Nottingham with his family and was told he loved his time at Forest and the city .
Given that Ben Watson is in the twilight of his career I thought how we might sign him for next season on reasonable terms .. What do you guys think ??
He's 30 years old and in the final year of his contract at Newcastle .. All being well he should be fit by the start of next season .. Wouldn't cost a fee so given our lack of quality midfield players what's not to like ??
