We need to get cracking on a few signings. I see Gomes has joined Everton and Spurs are about to lash out 65m on Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon.
Here he is stretching the jumper:

Martin O'Neill has signed Sammy Ameobi. I'm pretty sure that that was the last piece of the Armageddon jigsaw.

Google his name and it comes up with the headline 'Nottingham Forest Fans React To Sammy Ameobi signing'. I reckon you can guess what that reaction is. For some reason they seem somewhat underwhelmed by the signing of a striker who has scored 14 goals in nine seasons and 183 games.

Classic O'Neill.  Next trick, sell Joe Lolley for 5m and replace him with Aiden McGeady.

Any chance of getting an African Reverser between the sticks?

The African Mrs asked why I laughed aloud, just had to try to explain the ACR thread, she is smiled sweetly in response occasionally drifting off between contractions...

Oh yeah...weren't you going to name the nipper with a name beginning with 'V' if we won the play-offs?

Good luck. A bluescouse supporting mate of mine called his son Evan Tom, which impressed me endlessly.

Adam Davies has just signed for Stoke. He was keeper of the year at Barnsley in League 1 so that could be a sign that Butland is on his way somewhere.

Apparently Villa and Norwich have both expressed an interest in Reims 'keeper Edouard Mendy.

I read somewhere else last night that Smith is on holiday, it was suggested this week and next and although business will still be in swing we're unlikely to see a great deal announced until he's back.

Rumours about 23m for Butland.

Seems they're also in for Jack Clarke from Leeds, 8m. Would've thought we'd have been in for that price considering his impact at VP.

Sending messages on H and V while your wife is giving birth... I take it you're a laid back kind of guy. Just a warning if it's your first, things get worse shortly, but don't worry it all comes to an end and you will forget the pain when you see your new child. I think it's pretty tough for the woman, too.

Oh yeah...weren't you going to name the nipper with a name beginning with 'V' if we won the play-offs?

So yes middle named after our victory sorted (initials AV ;) ) sorted, and well its a marathon not a sprint Ive learned, but I think were maintaining form for the run in and hope to conclude the season at home with a home fixture, so far weve not had to play away.

Thanks for the well wishing guys, hoping to coincide our announcement with the Emperor, though it looks like we might beat him..:

Ndombele is scary good I think.

Would you describe him as a beast?
