Tim Flowers, the new goalkeeping coach at the City Ground, feels too many young players go chasing the Premier League dream too early.

A result of that is that they find themselves stuck in the shadows and unable to further their game through regular first-team football.

Darlow has that at Forest, having emerged as the undisputed number one, and is expected to be an important figure in Stuart Pearce’s plans heading forward.

Speculation will continue to suggest that the 23-year-old could soon be on his way to pastures new, with Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool all reported to be keen, but Flowers has called on Darlow to remain focused on the present and fulfilling his potential.

The former England international told Forest’s official website: “I think this is the perfect club for Karl right now.

“It’s a big club with an expectant crowd and wonderful facilities.

“Depending on how the jersey pans out in pre-season, he’s got a chance to play first-team football. You see a lot of lads his age who move clubs and don’t play – absolute waste of time.

“This is the right place at the right time for him.

“He’s got things to improve on and learn but he’s only 23 so has plenty of years ahead of him.

“I believe I can bring him on and that’s what I’m looking to do, as I am with all our goalkeepers.”

aybe Southampton's objectives have changed. They were looking to be a Champions League club, I believe. I love this quote so much. So arrogant. So poignant. You can see where it's all gone wrong.

o make it more fair, we should remove the requirements to score goals and not to concede goals. Then we could just spin and dance and leap and twirl and we'd never have to grow up! We'd be the bestest evar!
