Quote of the day

"I would be a bit gutted to go back."

There's an element of playing up to fans of his adopted club, I think, but Fraser Forster's comments about the possibility of a return to Newcastle are nevertheless revealing.

It would probably be a bit unfair to suggest that in insisting "I want to play week in, week out and sitting on a bench is not something I want" the 22-year-old sounds as though he's getting too big for his boots - after all, he's currently commanding a first-team position for Celtic so is clearly both gifted and in form and reaping the benefits of the loan system. But what it does indicate is that when the loan period is over, Chris Hughton may struggle to convince him that his future lies at St James' Park - especially with Tim Krul likely to be equally unhappy at having to play second fiddle to Steve Harper.
