The youth movement just keeps on moving at the City Ground.
With the number of youngsters that made appearances at Stamford Bridge on the weekend, you do have to wonder if this is the start of something new at the City Ground.
One of the players who was part of that team was 17-year-old winger Alex Mighten. Mighten had already made his Forest debut earlier in the season in the League Cup defeat to Arsenal, but managed to play 90 minutes against the Premier League outfit on Saturday, experience that could prove valuable in the future.
Afterward he spoke to the club’s media channel, talking about the experience of playing on such a big stage and how good it was to see the side compete with a Premier League side for the full 90 minutes. And he certainly left a good impression on these Forest fans, who were full of nothing but praise for the young man.
Don’t hype him up too much too early!! We’ve done this before and it’s ruined their hype, let him get properly educated and a year or so on loan to give him game time and then when he’s ready bring him in.

Needs to be in the squad, definitely has the potential and with his abilities he could easily come on and change the game

Alex Mighten is a great young prospect and comes across as well balanced and and a really nice guy.

Love his attitude. So many young player think it’s uncool to smile.
Cracking player, cracking attitude, cracking future.

Another Nottingham lad as well, I believe. Hero in the making.

Where should these talented youngsters spend the rest of the season?
Out on loan
Kept in the U23s
He sounds like he’s got a good head on him, and if he can leave the fans with that kind of impression about him, then there might just be a future for him at the City Ground yet.
