    he's playing great for about 20 - 30 minutes a game as he's struggling to get back to match fitness. he's been a wonderful burst of energy and creativity when inserted in the second half lately.

    unfortunately, at his current rate of recovery, he should be at his game fitness for the playoffs -- which he'll be able to watch from the comfort of his own home.

    I actually posted a thread just like this a week ago, Im pretty sure its on the second page by now, so look for a thread that says Ben Olsen and has my screen name next to it, and you can get other peoples answers too!

    Tricky Trees? Is that the term for fans of Forest?

    Yes, well he really hasn't played for us much either since he last played for Forest. He got injured there and has only started playing again in the last three games.

    It might interest you to note that he was voted into the All-Star game last year (the fans vote for the most popular players in the league, theoretically on their performance, but actually just on popularity) despite not playing last season.

    that is great nottingham fans support ben and united. i know lots of teams in europe have "friendly" teams in other leagues. maybe nottingham should be a "friendly team" of united. i am planning on some games in england and holland this year, mostly to u.s. abroad, but would love to see forest too.

    Hey... I've been over to the Forest boards recently.

    Don't give up the ghost yet... it's still a long season.

    Forest can't have Ben back - they broke him last time. ;)
