I still maintain his Forest cup selection was brilliant. Not so much for many fans, but for the players. Give the youngsters a taste of first team football, see what they can do but also make it clear if they are good enough and ready they will be picked. Must have been a huge boost for a lot of those players, the players who are our future.
For someone like Sibley it sure didn't do any harm.
I understand why that selection annoyed so many, but we are clearly seeing the rewards of a manager who thinks long term.
