Andy Reid

Our results always seemed better - and the stats bear out that impression too - when the Irish Wizard was in the team. There's no doubt he had that bit of magic that could conjure a goal out of nothing but it wasn't so much about what he did but also the style with which he did it. We made him and then welcomed him back and he played some of his best football before his career was so sadly and unexpectedly cut short by an injury that initially seemed like nothing much at all. It was particularly sad as he'd got back to his very best and had worked very hard to get into the peak of fitness which was instrumental in him being able to deliver some of the best form of his career. Andy Reid was a special player that Forest fans will always hold close to their hearts.
