Harry Forrester: Drawing plenty of admiring glances

McCarthy was among those in attendance at Griffin Park in midweek as Brentford saw off Southend in an FA Cup third round replay.

It is believed that he was there to cast an eye over highly-rated midfielder Forrester.

A number of clubs have been closely monitoring the 22-year-old this season, with his standout displays in League One attracting plenty of interest.

McCarthy has been impressed by the former Aston Villa trainee and may be tempted to make an official approach during the winter window.

Forrester's deal at Brentford is due to expire in the summer and he could be acquired at this stage were any interested party to meet a £350,000 rumoured buyout clause in his contract.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
