New Year, new start — and everything that entails. Ahead of tonight’s transfer deadline, here’s a few things you might have missed this month…

1. The Joy of Six: Nottingham Forest v Derby County memories — The Guardian
“From Brian Clough v Peter Taylor to Nigel Clough v Billy Davies via an intimate part of Ted ‘the Tin Man’ McMinn’s flesh between Stuart ‘Psycho’ Pearce’s teeth.”

2. Guedioura: This squad is like a family –
“@AdleneGUEDIOURA, as he is known on Twitter, sports the No7 shirt at Forest, and he reveals that decision was down to his followers as well. “I used to wear the No22 when I was here on loan and when I came back at the beginning of the season, the No7 shirt was free. I asked the fans on Twitter which number they preferred, seven or 22 and lots of them said No7 – so I chose that number.”

3. Lost in translation – LTLF
“Football can be very sentimental at times, but big business cannot afford to be. The Al-Hasawis are primarily business people and they will run our club like they run their existing businesses.”

4. Nottingham Forest: Strait is the gate and narrow is the way – Mist Rolling In From The Trent
“None of this is to say that any of the departures are inherently wrong. It is easy to argue that the club has stagnated over the last dozen years and that Mark Arthur and Keith Burt have been in key roles for much of that time. This sort of change is not unusual in football and it could well be beneficial to bring in some fresh ideas.”
