The Scot was talking after the recent friendly game against Stevenage, with a message which was exactly the same as one he gave to Forest Player after the club’s recent games in Sweden and Denmark.
The Scot is not ruling out the possibility of more fresh faces coming into his squad, stressing that he’s generally pleased with the direction the football club is currently heading in.
“We’re three weeks away from the start of the season and there will be another couple of fresh faces coming into the team,” he’s quoted by nottinghamforest.co.uk.
“I think that can only be a good thing for the football club but, overall, I’m pleased with the direction we’re heading in.”
Freedman must show two things
Forest’s manager needs to show patience and he needs to be very careful over the next two weeks heading into the new season.
The Scot is not in a position where he can gamble and bring in multiple players so he has to be shrewd over the fresh faces he’s bringing into the football club.
He needs to make the right additions in key areas, because it’s going to be very difficult for Forest to compete for players once the season is underway.
The closer a transfer deadline becomes, the easier it is for selling clubs to hold buying clubs to ransom and Forest aren’t in a position where they can get involved in bidding wars or competitions over wages.
The good thing for the club is that Freedman has shown a good measure in terms of the players he’s already brought in and should be trusted to make the right call for the football club.
