Looks like a wee laddie ………….. does not play like one though

 

Love players like him we need more of that sort of thing

One I wasn't sure about, but he is a slow burner career wise, had a slow start Saturday like everyone else, thought he was the spark, late first half & into the 2nd half that made the difference

Should only get better which is potentially very exciting

Always thought he’d be a very good signing & he’s certainly started off well

I like his attitude. He's old fashioned and direct. Work rate is second to none as well

Yep. Head down and run at defenders. If he has as good an impact as Sudo then he will be a great player for us.

He is now.

 

His brother's finished. Can't believe Celtic gave him a new contract.

300 games under his belt by 25 is some going. Type of player we should be signing given his trajectory.

His brothers engine was superb at his peak, he's going to score 2 on Sunday, that's a FACT.

Looks great. Thought was a decent addition to the squad, but when Joe Savage did an interview of Hearts TV back in June he talked about the players already signed and was surprised at his words about Forrest, he is obviously going to talk him up but he talked about the believe Forrest can reach another level and came across as they genuinely think he could be a really good player.

 

His goal on Saturday showed his movement off the ball. When he lays the pass to Grant he runs into the right spot before Cochrane has even passed it.

Doesn’t run like Captain Jack Sparrow also.

Like the look of him, bags of energy and can see him having a MoM performance on Sunday, he’s used to winning down there.

Yes I agree it is his passing and movement to get the return that impresses me most ………… see a nother player whos movement and positioning is very under rated - Devlin

 

Watch Devlin for ninety minutes and you could deliver a presentation on how to move and where to position your self as a player he just never stops ……….. does his bit and then gets in to the right position to receive the ball again , he will link well with Forrest

Sure he scored at Easter Road last season, thought he was our best player second half on Saturday, really like how direct he is and just drives at the defence. It's what defenders hate especially in the box. Was a great goal he scored if you watch his movement as he starts the move outside the box then drives for the 6 yard box to tap it in. He plays similar to his brother who has done ok for himself, if Alan can do the same at Hearts we will have some player.

According to one poster, he'll soon have that coached out of him by Neilson🤣

Thought he looked shite in preseason but definitely stepped up on Saturday. I’m all for talking players up but some comments on this thread though. 😂

It's such a likeable trait. Just go at defenders again and again. It was honestly the sort of player I thought GMS would be for us but sadly doesnt appear so.

Will be a cracking wee signing. 

 

I never doubted it.

Finished is harsh ( them on JKB tho-hit 30 and done!) , maybe not what celtic want but he's a good player and if he moves club he would  get more game time, less pressure and start enjoying his football again. 

 

100% take if available, if he ends up at Aberdeen, hibs or the likes he instantly improves them and is their best player.

Forerst has got a bit of dig about his game whereas GMS is a whimp and scared of getting hurt.

At the same age his brother was an excellent player. If Alan turns out to be as good it will be a real bonus.

Looks a good signing. Hopefully more consistent than some of our wide players.

It's an area that I felt let us down last year, GMS, Ginnelly & McKay, I was hoping for at least 10 goals from each of them whereas we struggled to get 10 goals between them.

 

Forest has started well and will hopefully get at least 10 goals this season.

He was very good in pre season and he's improving on it now.   Looking forward seeing him in action this Sunday. 

 

He must be a nightmare for our defensive players trying to get the ball back.    Our defenders will win more tackles on Sunday.

The player we thought we were getting when we signed GMS.

 

He'll do well here.

Yeah, maybe a little harsh but I'd rather have his wee brother.

Good point ………. should be fine though because Neilson apparently insists on every player being able to play every position

Gives defenders something to think about instead of our passing from side to side stuff we saw with wingers for years before - has a footballing brain too which unfortunately is what prevents Ginnelly from being as effective

Spoke to him at the training camp in Spain. A real down to earth nice lad. I'm sure he will do well.
