Was that the 7-0 game? Forest came to Ewood on a 25 game unbeaten run, which was a Premier League record at the time. Shearer got a hat-trick, but Bohinen was man of the match. Top player on his day.

Yep that was the one. I'd taken my youngest son to the game and we were waiting outside the foyer for autographs. It was starting to rain and most of the Forest players just brushed past everyone and got onto the coach. Stuart Pearce was almost the only one who stopped and signed autographs for everybody. Other players were banging on the coach windows but he ignored them and continued signing in the rain. That was the measure of the man.

Fair point Chaddy , think JB summed it up well on twitter  Link   Imagine the negotiations between Venkys and Levy. Insane. Levy: We will give you 10m. 2m upfront, 8m when we win the le

The last deal he signed was ridiculous from the clubs point of view. Nothing in there to protect us given the length of the deal. We really need to tie him down to a 4 year deal. Allow a release

Bradley's very good but I'm not sure there will be plays about him in 2,000 years time.

You remember correctly.

5-1 up inside 24 minutes. There can't have been many Premier League games with 6 goals in the opening 24 minutes.

I was on holiday in France for that game i remember going to the campsite phone box to phone a friend back home to find out the result was with my Sheffield Wednesday supporting cousin at the time so bragging rights for the rest of the holiday were most welcome.

Sadly common when returning from such a bad injury.

I am hoping that the absence of others having heard similar means this is a wind up.

He has already a couple of setbacks already from his 1st injury. If this is true it will be the third. 

This is why I said a couple of weeks ago any minutes from Dack before New Year is a massive bonus.

The club are enthusiastically touting he plays for the U23s on Friday, we’ll see if that actually transpires...

TM mentions that the rest of the players seem to put in an extra 10 or 20 percent into training when Dack is there. I would have thought ,getting that extra effort is the managers job.

‘Slight setback’ with his hamstring so won’t play tomorrow - wasn’t just an unfounded rumour then...

See you in the New Year, Bradley. Maybe Easter.

That tackle cost us hugely.

What tackle has cost us? The injury was fairly innocuous and it is unfair to attach any blame to Morsy.

Mowbray said this about him today:

"Bradley Dack is probably a week or so away now. He was telling me today next weekend, which is good," he added.

"Like any player coming back from a long-term injury, they have little setbacks along the way. It's not the smooth journey back that he wants but he's out there running round and kicking balls again today. He's happy and we have to accept sometimes the route back to first-team football isn't always smooth.

"He had an awareness in his hamstring last week but he was back out there kicking balls today and he's a week away."

I think the first we will see Dack is in the FAcup third round.

My role as a manager within a school department was to create the conditions where other members of the department felt confident in coming up with ideas which drove us all forward.

What pleased me even more was when key pupils in a class setting felt confident enough to inspire their peers and positively influence their learning.

I smiled when I read that article and got exactly what Mowbray was saying. From afar he seems to have got the conditions spot on for moving positively forward.

He's done it on the quiet from the start imo, which is why he kept referring to his 'leaders in the dressing room', like Graham, Bennett, Mulgrew, and Conway.
