Anyone who has ever followed my live tweets from games will know I really don't rate David McGoldrick. He has never impressed me really. I do begrudgingly accept that he must have something about him as he had a good scoring rate for Southampton before we signed him in a team that got relegated.
However in a Forest shirt he has done little save for that wonder strike away at Palace on the last day of last season. McClaren seemed to rate him early this year,persevering with a player that most fans had written off last year as being a waste of money.
No he has joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan, in a move I hope will be like David Johnsons loan there nearly10 years ago. Johnson had flattered to deceive since hi arrival at Forest, and a loan at Wednesday seemed to reinvigorate a Forest career that seemed to be going nowhere.
Not that I'm saying lightning strikes twice, but dropping a division and getting his goal scoring eye in, might see him return to us full of confidence and ready to show us what he really is capable of.
However, this is to a team managed by Idiot in Chief Gary Megson. Make no mistake he is on borrowed time at Hillsborough following a very embarrassing 5-1 defeat to Stevenage. They may be sat near the playoffs, but for a team of Wednesdays size, that simply isn't good enough.
McGoldrick one assumes has gone there for first team football so should be straight into the team for the match against Yeovil (seeing Megson return to one of his scenes of biggest embarrassment,inviting fans in to do his team talk for him)
So here's hoping McGoldrick takes this chance to get some football and get his self belief and confidence back. He needs a big kick up his arse, and it might motivate him to perform. It also teaches him that if you don't succeed you will be shipped out.
