PATERSON’S A FOREST FLIER
ANOTHER player we liked the look of was Jamie Paterson, currently flying for Nottingham Forest.
Mick Jones, my old assistant, used to watch him regularly when he was at Walsall and really fancied getting him on board. He was a right will o’ the wisp, and still is – there’s absolutely nowt on him. But he’s so direct and doesn’t give defenders a minute to think, probably because he always knows what he’s going to do next either.
When you’re flying high like Forest, he’s a brilliant player to have in your side.
And he’ll always be on the end of chances, which is why he’s got seven goals this season. For me, he’s got to be up there as one of the signings of the season.
