Why Forest loan move has been perfect for Kieran Dowell

Sunday 12 November 2017  7 Comments  [Jump to last]

"They have suited me down to the ground" says Kieran Dowell on his Nottingham Forest loan move; "We play some really good football, it's a great team, there's great staff and it's a really good club."

The 20-year-old Everton player is another of David Unsworth's proteges, and has made a great start to the season for Forest in the Championship. He has figured in all 16 of their league games so far, playing a key role in helping them to 9th place in the table – just two points outside the top six.

Dowell is Forest's joint top scorer in the Championship so far this campaign alongside striker Daryl Murphy, with six goals, including a hat-trick against Hull City last month. And he says he is loving every minute of his loan at the club.

I hope he can carry on his development because this lad has got talent by the bucket load. How much would it cost us for a goal scoring midfielder?

Kevin(#1); I think 45 Million. Oh, no, you said goalscorer. In that case 150,000 a week provided consistent passing to players on your own side is not compulsory.

Really hope this lad makes the grade at Everton.
Would love to see him, Davies, Kenny, Calvert-Lewin etc cement long term futures with us - and actually stay with us!

The Forest fans I've seen on twitter absolutely love this kid.

I saw a highlights reel after he'd played about four games for them and it was full of some great skill and attacking invention.

Could we have saved £45m by taking a chance on one of our own?

A season in the Championship will make the kid tougher. He certainly seems to have an eye for goal

That first goal of the hat trick was great. They all back off waiting for the pass and he just strolls forwards and before they realise it, he just smashes it home. The second was good technique.

Let's see how he does now his reputation builds and defences close him down quicker. They will know he doesn't have the speed to beat them. How will he cope? These are the skills he will need to learn to make it in the Premier League.

He's proving to be a real asset to Forest who play football the right way in a challenging league.

He'll come back full of confidence and ready for pre-season.

Can't help feeling that young Liam Walsh would've faired better at Forest than Birmingham.
