‘It’s magnificent’… Michael Dawson picks his Nottingham Forest player of the year

Michael Dawson has picked the Nottingham Forest player he believes should win the club’s Player of the Year this season.

The 2023/24 campaign won’t live long in the memory – that’s for sure.

The forest limped to safety. Saturday’s win against Sheffield United means the Reds need just one win to be almost certain of survival.

The Reds have a three-point lead over Luton and also have a far superior goal difference.

Although the season was largely terrible, there were positives for Forest to look back on.

Now, Dawson has chosen which player he thinks should be named Forest Player of the Year.

Michael Dawson names Morgan Gibbs-White as Forest Player of the Year

Well, there could be a few names in the mix this year for this special honor.

Forest have had some good performances this term, particularly at the top end of the pitch.

Gibbs-White, Anthony Elanga and Callum Hudson-Odoi have all been in good form and would be worthy nominees.

Chris Wood should also be in the mix, with his 13 goals proving hugely important for the Reds.

At the back, Murillo and Neco Williams would also be great shouts, but Dawson took it for Gibbs-White.

He told Sky Sports: “Defensively I was always worried but they can score goals.

“With Callum Hudson-Odoi, Elanga, Chris Wood and Morgan Gibbs-White, last season he was Player of the Year and this year he was Player of the Year.

“I think it was magnificent.”

Fight against the forest to get hold of the star player

Gibbs-White has been a fantastic player for Forest again this season with six goals and eight assists.

The Reds paid an initial fee of £25m to sign the attacker, with Steve Cooper making him a priority after promotion.

Forest could end up paying more for Wolves in add-ons, but they could now face an entirely different challenge.

With financial fair play likely to remain on the back burner next season, Forest will almost certainly grapple with the concept of selling a top player.

This leaves Gibbs-White somewhat vulnerable and Forest will hope he can survive and then devise a way to keep hold of his best players.
