After a good week for the Reds, which saw them take seven out of nine points, scoring nine goals in the process, there is a little break until next weekend’s encounter with Millwall. We are likely to see changes, with Greg Halford due a suspension for five yellow cards, and Jermaine Jenas possibly leaving the club after his goal today. This could see new boy Elliott Ward starting, and open up more chances for the likes of Radi, Google and eventually Henri Lansbury.
After scoring twice in two games, including the now infamous hot dog celebration at Blackpool, all Forest fans, players, and indeed many fans up and down the country would have dearly loved him to score in today’s 4-1 win at Barnsley. Today would have been the first birthday of Billy’s son Luey, prompting one of the most remarkable goals and emotional celebrations ever:
Billy will run the Great South Run tomorrow, and I urge everyone to read this moving interview where he talks about the impact of Luey’s short life.
Also for a good cause, Forest supporter Rowan Staszkiewicz is also doing some running this season. Rather a lot in fact. He has already run from the City Ground to London Road, and is going to run to Forest’s away match at the Crisp Bowl next, on 10th November. Rowan
is clearly mad has linked up with Sean O’Driscoll and his back room team, some of whom will be cycling the route to Leicester with Rowan the day before (and yes, Rowan will still be running the next day).
