How is Tyler Blackett getting on ever since leaving Nottingham Forest?



Tyler Blackett left Nottingham Forest in the summer after spending only a year at the City Ground.

The 27-year-old joined Forest on a free transfer from Reading last summer, but endured a frustrating campaign on Trentside.

A hip injury sidelined Blackett for the first half of the campaign, but he did recover and looked as if he would be Forest’s first-choice left-back towards the end of the season.

But the defender made 14 appearances in the Championship in total, starting only nine times and struggling to nail down a place in the side.

In the summer, Blackett, who only had a year left on his contract, left to move to the MLS to join FC Cincinnati – but how has he got on since?

Where did Nottingham Forest finish in the Championship in 2008/09?

Well, Blackett, who missed most of pre-season at Forest due to a groin problem, missed Cincinnati’s opening seven games of the MLS campaign.

He then made three substitute appearances for the club in defeats to NYCFC, DC United and Toronto, playing 52 minutes of football in total.

At the weekend, Blackett made his first start for Cincinnati, starting at centre-back and lasting the full 90 minutes in a 1-0 home defeat to New York Red Bulls.

It has been a frustrating start to the campaign for both Blackett and his new club, and he has been unable to earn a new lease of life over in the States as of yet.
