Would be great to see Gary Gardner doing well at the Villa though as has been said there is a lot of competition for that defensive midfield spot.

He's the new Michael Carrick don't you know.

Since when is Gardner a defensive midfielder?

He's played there a fair amount for Forest, apparently.
Yep. As he's not that quick footed it probably suits him to play slightly deeper. I'd imagine he's not in the enforcer mould, but more a deep lying playmaker. He could be an upgrade on Westwood for us.

It will be interesting to see whether a run of games has helped him increase his pace at all. He was desperately slow the last few times I saw him

So was Barry and he had a lot of criticism about his lack of pace at one time at B6, but it isn't just about pace, awareness and a football brain can add as much to a players capability as being able to run quickly.

Which reminds me, does anyone know why he didn't take the penalty?

One thing Barry was excellent at was getting out of tight spots with quick feet. Whether Gardner can develop that skill remains to be seen, but it was always natural to Barry. A very skilful player at close quarters.
Gardner doesn't appear to have that, but if he gains more awareness of space and using the ball quicker he should be fine. A whole season in the Championship, which can be quite frenetic, will undoubtedly help him with that.

Well Gardner has certainly made an impression at Forest. Great to see him gets some games and some form after his injuries. Just hope he can transfer that form to us on his return. If it doesn't work out I don't think you'd get very good odds on him not returning to Forest. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/32415894

It'll be interesting to see if he can make enough of an impression on Sherwood that he can sneak his way into the final squad

If we can beat Everton and look safe, i'd definitely throw him in against Southampton and Burnley whilst he's in form

It's probably not worth the fine and points deduction that we would get for selecting a player that we can't use.

Can we definitely not though? Is he of an age that he'd need to be declared in the 25? Does the loan finish once Forest season ends?

Yes he'd need to be declared in the 25 he was 22 at the start of the season, the loan technically finishes on June 1st but both clubs can agree to an early termination (which often happens) but that's irrelevant.

Even then, we still wouldn't be able to play him.

Shame he can't join up with us for the last few games. But it appears that he has picked up a knock in training http://hereisthecity.com/en-gb/2015/04/25/nottingham-forest-midfielder-gary-gardner-reveals-he-is-out-of-i/

I hope he's able to travel with the squad and enjoy the occasion on the cup final day. Same goes with the likes of Robinson, Bennett etc.
