Remember the good old days... you know, when Forest were on the verge of acquiring the services of Bale in January 2009. A move that would have strengthened the team in the push for a return to the top flight. Alas, Spurs’ injury issues helped to scupper the deal that surely (well... maybe) would have seen a return to the glory days for You Reds!
Instead, it was business as usual for the Forest Board... almost no strengthening of the squad. Result: failed to keep pressure on Top 2 teams and we ran out of steam in playoffs.
Hopefully, this is relevant enough for a Forest thread. I used to post with some of you a few years back... rediscovered this forum while browsing Forest reaction to the IMO terrible start to the season. I thought we might somehow scrape into the Prem last season if luck went our way in the playoffs... of course, that never materialized - leading me to question Sabri. Judging from these first two (3 with cup) games, I’m concerned this might be another forgettable season. Plenty of time yet, though, if wise decisions are made. Hopefully, in a few months time, we will debating who we should sign in Jan to push us further towards the Premier League!
