McGoldrick in the Hole
“Following Southampton’s relegation, my agent told me that a few clubs were interested in me. Once I became aware of Forest’s interest, I told him to get me there and he’s managed to do that, which I’m very grateful for.” Perhaps, but I’m sure David McGoldrick’s agent wasn’t acting out of the goodness of his heart and to see a player so eagerly join the rivals of the club that gave him his break in league football is disappointing for the true fans among us. McGoldrick certainly caught the eye in Southampton’s desperate season with some lithe displays in the fabled hole between defence and midfield — you know, the one where you don’t have to do any tracking back. The rumoured fee of a million is probably the going rate although the player’s similarity in style to the promising Lewis McGugan may give Billy Davies some selection worries.
