He could make them rich again

Nottingham Forest’s agreement to take Paul McKenna to the City Ground is the latest statement of intent from a side determined to recapture their days of yore. Few players can have clocked up the best part of five hundred starts for a club and then been tempted to move on, but McKenna’s quiet efficiency, incise passing and tigerish tackling have been evident to the Championship cognoscenti for some time now. McKenna is one of the few remaining links to David Moyes’ time in charge at North End, a golden period that relaunched the lilywhites as a respectable force within the English game, albeit without a top division appearance since 1961. It’s the latest jigsaw piece in a Summer of snazzy signings for the Tricky Trees and what better way to build a side than to recruit one of the game’s best all purpose midfielders?
