It’s never nice to see someone you once enjoyed watching play for your rivals, even if he was only a loan player.

That’s the situation Nottingham Forest find themselves in today, with John Percy of The Telegraph reporting that Derby County are set to complete the loan signing of Everton’s Kieran Dowell.

Dowell spent a season on loan at the City Ground back in 2017/18 and had a very successful time there, scoring ten goals and providing five assists. His finest moment though came in October of that season when he scored a hat-trick away at Hull.

Forest fans were quick to jump on Twitter and provide their own take on the situation. As was to be expected, there were some who kept the rivalry going, I suppose old habits do sometimes die hard.

However, it was good to see some Forest fans putting their differences aside and actually give an honest assessment of Dowell as a player. Especially when a Derby County fan offered out an olive branch of peace asking the Forest fans, they took the high road and praised Dowell for his performances during his brief spell at the club.
