Gardner makes Gestede look quick. I hope I'm wrong but I don't see him having the attributes to make it as a Premier standard centre mid.

Could he be any worse than Westwood?

Not comparable really as different players . Unless we try GG as a DCM .

Isn't that where Forest played him?

surely that article means Gardner will never again play for the club while Sherwood is manager.

Next year in the Prem whilst we're with The Chumps.

I believe so.  I think it might be his best position too as this position would allow him to shoot from distance (in my opinion his main strength) but mitigates against his main weakness (mobility).

Didn't realise he's 23, make or break for him really this season.

Blimey. Even if we do go down, I doubt they can keep this run of form up with one of the worst squads in the Championship. Their manager is doing very well, but I'd be astonished if they keep it up. Glass well and truly half empty?

My knees are worse than Gardner's and I'm about twice his age but if Sherwood is prepared to let me train and be judged alongside our squad I reckon I would look worth a chance.

Funny article in the Graun today Damo about a guy who wrote to Howard Kendall in 1982 saying they were worst everton side he's ever seen and ratcliffe was the shittest player ever at Goodison! He offered his services and Kendall wrote back to him offering him a trial, the offer was duly taken up, the guy disgraced himself. Kendall afterwards offered him away tickets at arsenal (season ticket holder), then took him to dinner and when he was walking away said something like: see, we do try our best. Everton then embarked on probably the most successful period in the club's history...

The Forest fans are very keen to keep our Gary. He must be doing something right at Championship level so it's worth remembering he's ours!

I've seen him play in three televised games and thought he was consistently poor in all three
