Hands Off Tyson - Arthur Warns Tractor Boys

Hands Off Tyson - Arthur Warns Tractor Boys

Championship rivals Bristol City have already had one bid for striker Nathan Tyson turned down and it looks like they may come in with a second and improved bid for the Reds' hitman.

Forest rejected a £750,000 bid from the tractor boys last month, but City manager Gary Johnson is rumoured to be keen on landing him. Fans would be slightly miffed to say the least if Tyson was to leave and especially at such a low valuation.

Forest CEO Mark Arthur tried to calm the fears of fans by telling the Nottingham Evening Post. 'Nathan Tyson is going nowhere, he is a big part of what we are trying to build for the future.'

Fine words from Arthur, but until Tyson signs a new deal he will be the subject of speculation. He still has 12 months to go with his current deal and an improved offer has been made by the club, but Tyson is stalling. Hopefully he will sign soon and put an end to the gossip.

I think you are never the same team without Tyson. Your bad runs of form last season always seemed to coincide with him being injured.

Yeah but is he really Championship quality? He will prove a lot of people wrong if he scores 12+ in this division this time around. Personally I like him - hungry, quick but I question if the defensive heads around the land will give him too much space.

IF tyson's up to speed, the defenses of the land won't have time to think about closing him down - he'll be gone already.

Tyson has speed yes, but he lacks ball control when used as a target man, and he can't head a ball to save his life. I am a season ticket holder and have supported Forest since the last time they were last in the 3rd division, so this is not the opinion of some slagger-off. But is has to be said that unless Tyson gets the ball placed in front of him so he can use his pace, and his (usually) good shooting, then he is not Championship quality. Gareth McLeary has far better ball control and dribbling skill than Tyson, even at his young age, and has a fair bit of pace as well. I am expecting good things from him this coming season. Also in my opinion, the only Forest player who used the pace of Tyson to the best was last year knocking in 20+ goals for Chesterfield.

Just to let you know 'guinless', Ipswich are the Tractor Boys... not Bristol City!
