Together, and yet at the same time very much apart.
In fact that might have been the message that the club wanted to get across when it came to this picture. Or maybe I’m just reading too much into it.
Nottingham Forest are one of a number of teams that are getting back into the swing of things when it comes to training getting ready for the potential restart of the Championship season, and perhaps one of the more crucial positions that need to get themselves ready will be the goalkeepers.
Similar to how cricket players need time to ‘get their eye in’, when it comes to having balls flying at you and getting your hand-eye co-ordination back to a decent level after some time off, they’re going to need a lot of practice to get back into shape.
Is Brice Samba the best Forest keeper since the year 2000?
And given how popular our number one Brice Samba has been with fans this season, it was no surprise that when the club posted a picture of him and Jordan Smith getting their workout done, that there was a flood of comments from the fans showing their appreciation that he and Smith were back at work.
these training pics are vitalizing me https://t.co/TDYDiJ8r97

Good to see @JordanGKSmith back training there and always with a smile. Top lad and top goalie.

Let’s just hope he hasn’t lost too much of a step during the time away.
