Sean O'Driscoll: 'Forest need great owners'

O'Driscoll saw second-half goals from Steve Davis and Marvin Elliott seal the win and said afterwards the points were no more valuable than usual.

"People asked me if I wanted to win more because we were playing Forest and I didn't understand the question," he said.

"How could I want to win more than usual? If that was the case I must have been approaching other games the wrong way.

"Forest are a great club with a great fan base. What they need is great owners.

"I got on with everyone there except the owners. It was nice to be cheered by their fans, but I would have been disappointed if they had insulted me after I left the club a point outside the play-off zone.

"It was all about Bristol City for me today and I'm pleased that with a number of key players absent we turned in a decent performance."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
