Nathan Tyson: Would like to see out the season at Meadow Lane

Nathan Tyson: Would like to see out the season at Meadow Lane

On the back of a difficult time at Blackpool, the 31-year-old forward has linked up with County on an initial one-month agreement.

He has started back-to-back fixtures since moving to Meadow Lane and is relieved to have finally stepped back out of the footballing shadows.

The former Nottingham Forest and Derby County man is now looking to see out the season with the Magpies, with it up to him to convince all parties that a prolonged stay with the Sky Bet League One outfit is a sensible option.

Tyson said in the Evening Post: "I did ask to stay until the end of the season because I didn't just want to come for the month.

"But it didn't happen. I would rather take the month than do what I was doing.

"I think the window closes at the end of the month and it would be nice to stay. But if it doesn't happen then I like to think I've helped the team while I've been here."

Tyson was taken to Blackpool in September as a free agent but has found opportunities hard to come by and quickly grew disillusioned with weekends spent looking on from afar.

He added on a testing campaign: "In the first week I got here the training was unbelievable and was one of the best I've had in a long time.

"I wasn't coming in thinking, 'Here we go again, Saturday's going to be another day off', which has been horrible.

"Even though I got to spend more time with my children and my girlfriend, which is great, I do want to come to work.

"It's been good to get out there and just enjoy football again.

"The last year has been a very dark period for me and it's been lonely. But I've got a good network around me, such as my girlfriend, my children and my family and friends.

"It's a tight-knit circle and it's been all about digging in. If you are true to yourself and work hard every single day, then you will get your rewards.

"The reward for me is coming here, to have a shirt and just get playing again."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
