2star mate just want to bring the academy discussion to the top of the board, you compared ours unfavourablely with the sh****** . How does that work?, the only 2players they have sold on for good money from their academy In recent years that I can recall, are Hughes, and huddlestone, ( 2nottm lads ) okay a few are playing in their 1st team at the mo that's getting beat every week, in our team we have cash, Worrall Yeats, we have used smith, Johnson mighten, etc, in a squad that has outperformed theirs all season, we have sold on Burke, brereton, lacelles Osborn, Darlow even going back to Bamford for good money, so I don't see where their academy, higher level or not has outperformed ours, or did I miss something?

Agree3 Disagree0

Add to that Appiah last summer, I think for around 8 million.

20 Jul 2020 14:08:47
Kirkbyred I knew there was at least 1 I missed mate.

20 Jul 2020 17:33:21
You forgot Andrea Silenzi!
Dont believe a word of it, him being born in Italy!

20 Jul 2020 18:22:05
Rogie nobody could forget him mate! 😊.

well just seen the goal barnsley scored and guess who was there doing nothing again, barnsleys 12th player worral. why is he still at forest, personnaly we but our rubbish bins out on monday. forest should get him in one, garbage he is.

20 Jul 2020 19:12:53
Cash didn't come through the Forest academy, Stevie, he came from the FAB academy.

20 Jul 2020 19:17:30
Psycho fair enough mate, but I still believe our academy has outperformed the sh******.

20 Jul 2020 19:20:39
Psycho he has been with us since he was 16 though mate, think we can take some credit in his development,

20 Jul 2020 20:14:46
Stevie, apologies there are a couple of 3 players I thought were derby lads bit were signed as youngsters Wisdom, Brayford and brailsford. Brereton and cash didn’t come through the academy but we would, I agree have had some hand in the latter part.

There are plenty who didn’t reach expectation but we’ve got those too (smith for example)

Mighten, Johnson and Walker - all I’ll say is we’ve heard it all before .

Appiah - we will never know burke definitely looked the part .

Appiah, Osborn, Burke and Brereton have all yielded an excellent return for the club.

Worrrall - hmmmmm, we will see.

20 Jul 2020 20:16:43
Ps - Yates - sorry but no, being on the pitch doesn’t automatically mean he’s any good . There is time yet but he’s been quite poor this season, looked good at first but got sent off as I recall and has been naff ever since.

20 Jul 2020 20:37:12
Bliddred are you really a forest fan?
While we were doing well not a peep from you with your worrall bashing?
So your opinion is everyone is crap at the club?
Well that's a good foundation to build on, NOT.

20 Jul 2020 20:40:49
2star I am not saying Yates etc, are world beaters just that our squad kids have outperformed theirs all season, and the money we got for our sell ons dwarfs the total derby have received, not saying any of them were great, thought wisdom was a Liverpool loan for them mate,

{Ed001's Note - Wisdom was a Leeds academy lad, Liverpool bought him, then loaned him to Derby. If you want a giggle, go and have a look how he got on when he first tried to drive to Derby's training ground using sat nav.}

20 Jul 2020 21:12:51
Yeah realised that now Ed, so many good lads come via Liverpool - development set up must be good.

{Ed001's Note - it is now, Rafa Benitez revamped it as it was a bit of a mess, but he also ripped out the good bits as well as the bad. Klopp has brought back the likes of Steve Heighway and so got the best of the old as well as the new.}

20 Jul 2020 21:14:30
Stevie, there’s a few knocking about this season I think, you’re right though, we’ve had more in recent times. Ps I’ll give you you’re due, you’re hatred for everything sheep is as consistent as it is vehement 👍😂.

20 Jul 2020 21:31:42
So he's a bit of a Norman then edd? 🤣🤣.

{Ed001's Note - it is fair to say he is not very bright bless him. Nice lad, but you would think he would have cottoned on he was going the wrong way a bit sooner.}

20 Jul 2020 21:52:39
2star yep Wayne Rooneys derby county are not my favourite team mate lol, must be something about the name ‘ county like that shower across the river! Lol,

20 Jul 2020 21:57:05
The Forest Academy has definitely been more profitable than the sh***ers' has. The lambs might have category 1 status but it hasn't bore much fruit as yet. Time will tell if it does but it won't be as beneficial in terms of financial value or quality and quantity as ours is.

20 Jul 2020 22:18:22
No doubt we’ve yielded cash - gawd knows how but we have . It’s one thing we’re definitely getting right at the moment - ripping folk off! Robin Hood lives on!

20 Jul 2020 22:20:23
I guess with his talent he doesn’t need to be too bright . I once remember someone who worked for us being despatched to a job in Frimley (Aldershot) way, his arrival in Blackpool was his first suspicion he’d gone the wrong way! I mean WTF?!

{Ed001's Note - you would think he would spot the signs a little bit before Blackpool!}

20 Jul 2020 22:30:56
Haha I know mate - it’s still unbelievable to me to this day - complete muppet! This was in the days before fuel cards, he had to stump up for some fuel and tried to give us the receipt! We nick named him compass thereafter!

{Ed001's Note - nice nickname. Poor guy. Obviously not the brightest bulb in the box though.}

20 Jul 2020 23:05:12
What was he delivering 2 star?
Tartan paint? 🤣🤣🤣.

21 Jul 2020 09:01:57
Ironically diesel! When he needed fuel he didn’t realise he had a hand pump accompanying the 45 gallon drums, he probably would have known how to use it anyway - I’m not making this up either!
