It’s odd how one small thing can spark such a frenzied debate amongst the fanbase.
However, that’s exactly what one quick trim has managed to do to Nottingham Forest fans as defender Joe Worrall appears to be sporting a new look for the new year. Quite why he decided to shave his hair at this time of year I’m not quite sure, I personally would have waited until the summer, far too cold to be doing this sort of thing in January.
It’s not so much the haircut that has got the fans talking though, rather it seems that what’s left of him bears a striking resemblance to another one of the Nottingham Forest players, Ben Watson, something that has given Reds fans quite the chuckle when the picture made the rounds on social media.
I must say, it is quite a striking resemblance when you look at it. It nearly fooled me the first time that I saw it.
Honestly thought it was Watson for a second 🤣

Will Worrall leave in January if Arsenal offer the right price?
I just hope we don’t find ourselves in a situation like Arsenal did a couple of years ago and the two player’s looks end up putting us in a little bit of trouble.
