The season may not yet be a minute old but already I find myself looking forward to 2018/19 with optimism. With Marinakis’ investment and Karanka given the summer to assemble the team he really wants, it will be fascinating to see what kind of a squad we’ll end up with. Will Karanka assemble the squad that will finally return us to the promised land of the Premier League?
It isn’t just on the pitch where we may see change. With ownership and managerial connections to Greece and the Basque Autonomous Community, one wonders where our pre-season trips may take us this summer? Goodbye Ilkeston and Mansfield, hello Piraeus (Olympiakos) and Vitoria-Gasteiz (Alaves)? Speculation, perhaps, but all of a sudden it feels as if our horizons may have been expanded. Passports at the ready?
One change which we know is coming, is the arrival of new kit courtesy of Macron. If they do as good a job for us as they have with certain other European clubs, I for one will very much look forward to pulling on the Garibaldi.
There really is so much to look forward to next season and I can’t wait to follow all the action both at the matches and here with you fine people on Forestfans.net!
