It's been a frustrating — and not unsurprising — week for Nottingham Forest. Despite months of chasing certain players, and Billy Davies' declaration of the need for 'four or five stellar signings', there was no activity in the transfer market. None whatsoever. Zilch.
If, like me, the pain of Tuesday night was too much to bear then you probably can't even look at the football headlines let alone read the match reports. Nottingham Forest's capitulation in a play-off semi-final AGAIN proves that there's no such thing as third time lucky.
While the season is yet to conclude, and the play-offs still to come, it might seem early for retrospective. But before the finale of 2009/10 concludes, it's worth remembering how far Nottingham Forest have come in the past 16 months.
