Big changes to be made at the end of the season.
Players to leave-

Believable22 Unbelievable13

With Adlene, Cunningham, higgs, wootton, elokobi all to return to their clubs we will have a mass exodus. You can also add the likes of camp Anderson mcgugan to the list as well.
I personally don't think we will see everybody listed leave, but it will give us a chance to reduce the wage bill. I would start with miller Reid greening and mcgoldrick. Approx 60k in wages there.

Who ru intending on replacing them with?

Agree5 Disagree5

Yeah i agree, whats the oint in holding on to dead wood and if we manage to stay in league and lets build new foundations in time for next season.cmon you reds for tuesday and lets get them 3 points

Agree3 Disagree6

Half of that lot will go

Agree2 Disagree3

I'll hire the minibus!

Agree4 Disagree4

Why do people think we should get rid of Reid still? Have you been to any games recently? He is by far our most creative player (guedeoira aside).

Agree11 Disagree1

The Irish always gave 110% for Forest!

Agree8 Disagree2

Reid has become more influential but sadly he is a high earner that hasnt been worth it considering the majority of performances...
If he got fit and continued to pass the ball as he is doing i'd keep him...but he'd need to get fitter and start running to defend as well

Agree3 Disagree5

If Reid got fit.....the guys had a decent career without watching his kcals,he is what he is , a luxury if others around him perform. If miller didn't get injured , if camp could save, if mcgugan cared........oh if forest could only play as a unit and work harder.......and if the fans got behind what we have got it may help. Everyone seems to want wholesale changes , AVB, be careful what you wish for

Agree2 Disagree1

Cont , and Fc twente are 1point off the top of the Dutch league,game in hand and goal diff of plus 40, we want too much too soon,continuity ......

Agree2 Disagree5

When are people going to realise that being slow and being unfit are totally different things??
Reid can last 90mins, which he has done a lot lately and he is also capable of doing this twice a week. That fact that he is slow, people take this to be he is fat, overweight and unfit.

Hoppers u1

Agree5 Disagree1

Ok ill give you he is maybe slower than he is unfit... but ive watched him in defense and he does nothing if it involves running... he organises the defense better than chambers but it is only to get out of defensive duties himself. when he plays LM reid leaves us totally exposed as elokobi and cunningham have both had to face the task of marking their man and covering reids.
at CM reid is much more effective as moussi or guerdiora can cover much more ground defensively freeing him up into the less defensive playmaking role he suits

Agree0 Disagree2

Continuity is required yes... but Mcclaren had no idea how to play championship football...its not the eredivise

Agree3 Disagree1

Reid has never been a box-to-box player.
"Look at what they've got, not what they haven't got" BC.
This philosophy got the best out of John Robertson who was unfit, overweight and couldn't run 20 yards.

Agree5 Disagree1

John Robertson...I knew Reid reminded me of someone...thanks for the memory!!

Agree1 Disagree1

And Reid today.....outstanding.....get off his back,he carries enough weight as it is
