‘Better than Busquets’: James Garner has Forest fans raving after top display

Quick Reads

After a frustrating loan spell at Watford, Manchester United‘s James Garner has made a brilliant first impression at Nottingham Forest. 

Garner made 21 appearances for the Hornets but was frozen out following the arrival of new manager Xisco Munoz and United terminated the loan deal in January.

The 19-year-old remained in the Championship with Forest and was awarded the Man of the Match award on his debut earlier this week.

“I thought James Garner’s debut on Tuesday night was fantastic,” team-mate Jack Colback told Forest’s official website.

“He was moving the ball around really well and spraying some good passes around the pitch so it was a strong performance but when you consider he has joined from Manchester United, you know he’ll have that quality.”

The midfielder then followed that up with another impressive display against Wycombe, helping his side to a 3-0 win away from home.

We’ve rounded up a number of tweets from Forest fans that were impressed by his display.
