McLeish, who last week made his third signing of the month by bringing striker Darius Henderson to the City Ground from npower Championship rivals Millwall, watched his side lose 3-0 at home to Watford on Saturday.

The Scot described the performance against the Hornets as "brain dead" as Forest, who were a point shy of the play-off places when McLeish took over at the end of last year, slipped six points adrift of the top six.

"We need some fresh blood," McLeish said. "You can see we need a little bit of help. We look one-paced and we could be doing with an injection somewhere in the team.

"We will keep working hard to see who we can bring in over the next few days. It would be nice to make a few additions.

"I tried for a player last week and he chose to go somewhere else, so that was a bit of a blow.

"But we will keep working hard and hopefully we can get the Forest fans some cheer."

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!
