Things are going rather well for the Nottingham Forest supporters here in the Transfer Tavern right now.
Mark Warburton’s side are fourth in the league right now and our resident Reds are eager to see just how far the former Rangers boss can take them. Still, there’s one man they’re missing right now.
Indeed, the City Ground faithful were gutted to lose Oliver Burke last summer in a big money transfer to RB Leipzig, so recent reports linking him with a move to Crystal Palace were always going to spark a reaction.
A product of the club’s youth policy, big things were touted for the Scotland international before a difficult year in the Bundesliga, though he remains a popular figure amongst our Forest supporting drinkers.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Nottingham Forest reacted online to Olivier Burke’s links with Crystal Palace.
If Burke progesses well at Palace like we assumed he would at RB and gets sold in 3 years for 40-50m then it won't have been a good decision

Why are some fans still bothered by Burke? Deal was dodgy but Burke has barely kicked a ball since. #NFFC onto better things now anyway.
