After the summer transfer activity, the goalkeeper situation at Nottingham Forest is discussed.

Current Nottingham Forest news as head coach Steve Cooper discusses the Reds’ activity during the summer transfer window.

Odysseas Vlachodimos’ arrival on deadline day means goalkeeper Matt Turner will have to fight for his Nottingham Forest jersey.

When determining who starts games, Steve Cooper asserts that there is no definitive No. 1 or No. 2 player. The intensity of the battle among his keepers perfectly captures the breadth of talent the Reds now possess across the team.

Turner, who joined Forest earlier this summer from Arsenal, has had a strong start to his career. Wayne Hennessey is back in shape after recovering from a knee injury, and Vlachodimos, a Greek international, will compete fiercely with him for a spot in the team.

When the club announced their 25-man roster earlier this week, Ethan Horvath had nowhere to go because Turner and Vlachodimos had been brought in.
Cooper stated before the match against Burnley on Monday night that “there’s great competition.”

“The region of the pitch is now very competitive. Really, we have the competition we desire in every area. Goalkeepers are always the focus of this discussion, although players in every position are subject to the same level of competition. It’s quite nutritious.”

“The goalkeeping coach, Danny Alcock, has put his team in a position where they must now press hard. We’re quite happy with everyone.Wayne is healthy and back in the gym with us. Due to his age and level of experience, he has a significant impact on the group. We’ll try to make use of that.The player should be in a situation where he is aware of the importance of doing well. You desire it, after all.”

It’s not as easy as having a No. 1 in my opinion. It’s wonderful news for Matt because his wife recently gave birth to a girl, exactly like Cheikhou (Kouyate) did a few days prior. Every role has the same requirements. The players are fiercely battling for the shirt, and it’s competitive.
