What a spine tingling moment it must have been for Stuart Pearce today as the Nottingham Forest faithful gave him a rapturous applause ahead of his first competitive game in charge of Nottingham Forest on a full-time basis having held the post as caretaker boss way back in 1996/97.

It's no real surprise having captained Forest for years under the legend that was Brian Clough that he got this sort of reception however it must have been emotional!

If grounds could talk, its tale would be the grandest of them all. It is no Camp Nou, no Bernabeu. You could hardly find a more inauspicious set for this Hollywood plot. Across the waters of the Trent, beyond the graffiti-spattered Lady Bay Bridge and gloomy, half-abandoned industrial units, Nottingham Forest's giant, dirty goalpost Trent End is impossible to miss, standing proud alongside the boat clubs on the banks of the river.

Here is another player Fulham have been linked with.

The key question: does Neil Taylor have the stomach for a relegation battle?

Mixed thoughts:

On the one hand, he was sent off after 53 seconds in a Championship semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

This kind of recklessness under pressure is the last thing Fulham need.

[F]ollowing on from John McGee's freeform assessment of League 1 yesterday, here is a somewhat more plodding assessment of the level above. That, however, is no reflection on the ins and outs of this season's Championship - a competition where extortionate transfer fees, underqualified managers and frankly terrifying owners hold sway, where parachute payments warp the competition and everyone is indulging in the filthy scramble for Premier League riches - apart from Blackpool.

[I]t was a close-call, but Danny Ings pipped fellow Claret Kieran Trippier to this year's YP gong. The Wintonian was simply irrepressible and – to Burnley supporters' joy – managed to return from the sidelines just as his strike partner Sam Vokes had hobbled off with a season-ending injury. Trippier, who once again claimed the right-back spot in the divisional PFA team of the year, can however be considered unlucky not to have made the award his own; a great career surely lies ahead for the former Manchester City youth-teamer.

In the late 1970s a company called Marshall Cavendish released a series of football magazines which the avid reader would slip into binders to create their very own football encyclopaedia.

Eric Lichaj received some devastating news on Thursday that will likely keep him out of consideration for the U.S. Men's National Team at the World Cup.

Nottingham Forest announced that Lichaj will soon undergo surgery for a double hernia, with no timetable for his return.

When Eric Lichaj left his first match in a month after just 45 minutes, there was reason to be concerned that he had suffered another setback.

He did, and he may require surgery that could cost him a month of playing time at a crucial time.

According to Sky Sports, Lichaj could wind up missing up to a month as he battles a groin injury that looks like it will require surgery.
