While much of the attention was placed on the convincing nature of our 3-0 triumph against Malaga, the game also signalled the return of Thomas Lam to the Forest team. Could the Finnish international establish himself as a mainstay in Karanka’s side?

Many Nottingham Forest supporters (myself included) didn’t expect that Lam would return to Forest. However, it appears that his performances with FC Twente have encouraged Karanka, and the boss has given the defender the opportunity to impress during pre-season.

This isn’t to insinuate that he’ll play a prominent role this season. That said, it’s clear that Karanka is considering Lam’s inclusion in the team.

Here’s what Forest supporters on Twitter think of Lam.

Verdict:

One of the 24-year-old’s main obstacles is whether he can adapt to the physical and gruelling nature of Championship football. If he can familiarise himself with the demands of English football, then I’m confident that we’ll have a competent centre-back at our disposal.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree? Let us know!
