One of the biggest forwards in the game


July 17, 1931
Robert Clark, of Liverpool, whom Nottingham Forest have added to their list, is one of the biggest forwards in the game. He may do well in the Second Division, as he will not be knocked off the ball, but he is that rare thing – a heavy player with dainty feet.
When you see Clark enter the field and line up in attack for the first time you to yourself: “Hello, another bull-at-a-gate player.” But he’s nothing of the kind.
He is all for dribbling and holding the ball and making canny little passes.
Clark is a really skillful player of whom the best had not been seen at Liverpool, where the forward play had been all too go-ahead.
