Billy Davies: Has heaped praise on new Forest recruit Jamie Mackie

Mackie, a £1million-plus arrival from Sky Bet Championship rivals QPR this summer, scored his first goal for the club against Bolton on Saturday.

It was the forward's fourth appearance this season, and third start, and Mackie's work rate, energy and determination have caught the eye in all of his outings so far.

Davies has predicted that the 27-year-old will work his way into the hearts of Forest fans.

"Mackie is what he is and the fans take to him because he gives everything he has got," said Davies.

"I have to say that we have a fantastic spirit, even with the new players who came in.

"It is nice to have players like Mackie. I believe he will be a fantastic addition, along with one or two other guys, once we gel them together."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
