Goodbye Ian

It is with pride and a touch of sadness that today we saw Ian Breckin play his last game for Nottingham Forest.

This site has sponsored Ian since he arrived at the club back in 2005 and is proud to have been associated with him throughout his Forest career.

We wish him, and his family, all the best for the future.

Forest Fans Support Ugandan Kids Football

Andy "Red Dog" Daykin has just got back from Uganda with Draycott United where they did a tour and charity work.
A few folks from the forum donated money and Dave "Plymouth Red" Brown organized most of the 35kgs of kit they took with them.

Andy says "This was a life changing experience and I do believe that we did a great deal of good. I was pleased to actually see the resources going into the hands of the folks who are going to use them so well. I'd love to go again to do more footy related activities and support if I get the chance. If I do, you'll hear about it. I shall continue to support the TKL and you can support them directly or through me. You can check out their website - which I believe is being updated. You can also read about their work on Wikipedia."

Gunter told BBC Radio Nottingham: "It's a fantastic club with brilliant people and it couldn't have gone any better.

Gunter joined Spurs from Cardiff for about £3m in January 2008 but has only made three Premier League appearances this season.

Blackstock surprised to be allowed to leave QPR

The 22-year-old was allowed to leave Loftus Road on Thursday despite being the club's leading scorer with 12 goals, seven more than nearest challenger Heidar Helguson.

The move was even more surprising as Helguson is out injured leaving Rangers boss Paulo Sousa with just one fit striker in Samuel Di Carmine.

"I was a bit surprised that I was allowed to go," Blackstock told Forest's official website. "Especially with Heidar out for the season.

"It was a bit of a surprise for me but then again it was an opportunity for me to come to such a big club.

"It wasn't going stale at QPR, I was far and away their top scorer on 12 goals and I thought I was having a decent season."
