McGoldrick Approach Accepted
Friday, 4th Jan 2013 12:43
TWTD understands that Nottingham Forest have accepted a Town approach for striker David McGoldrick. Reports that the Blues were targeting the 25-year-old on loan surfaced earlier this morning, Town boss Mick McCarthy and his assistant Terry Connor having watched him in action during his loan spell at Coventry recently.
McGoldrick, who we understand could join the Blues as soon as today, spent the first half of the season on loan with the Sky Blues, scoring 17 goals in 24 starts and one sub appearance.
Asked about the 25-year-old as an alternative to DJ Campbell, who has returned to parent club QPR and will feature in the FA Cup for them tomorrow, last week, McCarthy said: “He’s scored a few goals for Coventry on loan and we’ve been looking all over the place. But I wouldn’t tell you my targets, you know that.”
McGoldrick started his career with Notts County but moved to Southampton when still a 16-year-old, having already broken into the Magpies' first team.
The 6ft 1in tall pacey frontman, who spent tim eback at Meadow Lane and at Port Vale and Bournemouth on loan while a Saint, was on the losing side as Town won the 2005 FA Youth Cup.
He joined Forest in 2009 for £1 million, signing a four-year deal, and since then has been on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and then Coventry.
The Blues are also being linked with Hull City striker Aaron Mclean.

Where Are We Now? by Steve_M
Well, ultimately it is now a question of a change of manager now or at the end of the season. Mick McCarthy has dragged the cycle out to four years rather than the 18 months of his more hapless predecessors but there is clearly a need for a fresh approach at the club.
The Moore You Ignore Mick by Mullet
Day 14 in the TWTD madhouse and all is far from clear. Months of second-rate drama and second-rate football seem to end with a quiet ovation for Mick McCarthy and his men. With his captain coming out in the media to air publicly the wounds of he and his colleagues, another young player is welcomed and warned off it by Mick.
The Identity Crisis of Modern Football by wkj
Like so many others my age, my Grandad bought me up on Ipswich Town. A great club with family ties, involvement and commitment to the larger Suffolk community, and a privilege to support. In those days it seems a lot of clubs had similar connections to their fans.
A Belated Christmas Carol of Sorts by monty_radio
The Marley deal was dead, no doubt about it. Scrooge looked again as the knocker smiled in a kindly, fair-play sort of fashion, then slowly faded away. He turned the key and entered his very own gloomy arena. A large chunk of ceiling, disturbed by the mere turning of the key, struck him as he climbed the rickety stair to the upper section.

None of the club’s successful managers over the years had massive resources available to them, but none have had to compete in leagues as inequitable as the current Championship.
