Nottingham Forest is delighted to announce the signing of Nuno Tavares from Arsenal. The defender arrives at The City Ground on a season-long loan deal, which includes future options. Tavares, 23, joins Forest having enjoyed an impressive loan spell in France with Marseille last season, with the full-back scoring six goals in 31 Ligue 1 appearances.
Born in Lisbon, the defender had spells with Casa Pia and Sporting CP as a youngster before joining Benfica in 2015, going on to spend six years with the club before moving to Arsenal in 2021. Tavares has since played 28 times for the Gunners, scoring his first goal for the club in a 3-1 Premier League win over Manchester United in April 2022. Capped 16 times for Portugal U21s, Tavares made 39 appearances across all competitions for Marseille last season, playing the entirety of their six UEFA Champions League group stage fixtures.
Nuno Tavares, who will wear the number 3 during his time on Trentside, said: “I’m really happy to be here. “Forest is an historic club which won two European Cups and to be part of it makes me really happy. “I’m really happy to stay in the Premier League as it’s the best league in the world and I’m thankful to Forest for giving me that opportunity.” Forest’s Chief Football Officer, Ross Wilson added: “We are pleased to welcome Nuno to the club today. “I know how determined he is to do well here and our staff are all looking forward to working with him.”
Nuno isn’t fazed by a debut, he has scored on his first competitive starts for both Benfica and Marseille last season. His first-ever appearance for us, also came with a goal in a 2-2 draw against Rangers in a pre-season friendly the same month he joined.
Ah yes September! When the leaves start to change colour and it looks so beautiful and then they fall – well not really where I live but I can see them nonetheless. Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte goes on sale August 24th in the U.S. and Canada, as it does each year when the nights start getting longer and the fall winds gather. But this year it was slightly earlier than usual. Starbucks India will also see the seasonal favourites come out to the delight of their patrons (as of now, I don’t see them on the menu).
Tim Hortons’ too have brought out their seasonal specials for their customers on AUg 29th. Tims customers across Canada can now try a new Pumpkin Spice Latte, Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew, and a Pumpkin Spice Iced Capp. Offered either hot or cold, the lattes are made with freshly brewed espresso, frothy steamed or ice chilled milk, and delicious pumpkin spice flavour and are topped with whipped topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. As for the new Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew and the Pumpkin Spice Iced Capp, both come with a pumpkin spice twist. Once again, they haven’t yet arrived in India but they will. I am not worried since most of India does not really have a falll/autumn season. Just like most of of us do not really have a winter season.
For Starbuck It’s the coffee giant’s most popular seasonal beverage, with hundreds of millions sold since its launch in 2003 in the US alone. In the year ending July 29, U.S. sales of pumpkin-flavored products reached $802.5 million, according to Nielsen. Starbucks tested the Pumpkin Spice Latte in 100 stores in Washington, D.C., and Vancouver, British Columbia, that fall. The company quickly realized it had a winner and rolled it out across the United States and Canada the following fall.
