Looks like Jake Taylor will be allowed to leave without never being given a chance.
As an attacking MF player he scored lots of goals for the 23,s ,quite a few long distance.
He was then sent to Port Vale where his good form continued,goals and assists.
This season probably against his wishes he was sent to Scunthorpe a club in free fall and understandably has not had the best of times.
He probably would have bust a gut given a chance atForest but with oversea,s players getting preference this was not going to happen.
If players at under 23 level do well and are constantly overlooked what is the point.
Once again the player recruitment at the club must come in for criticism, holding back players in favour of lots of poor singing,s and loans .
At 22 Taylor isn’t a kid and surely deserved a chance and to show others that at this club ,do well and you and you will not be overlooked!
This would would encourage young talent to want to be here!

Well if he’s anything like Yates it would be impossible to endure another player so inept .

I would of at least gave him half a chance as sub for some games couldn’t have done any worse than any of the others have done.

I must be the only person that thinks Yates gets horrible treatment from some fans. I think he's worth persisting with, really don't see why some think he's so awful. His work-rate and effort are second to none, he tries to get forward into some promising positions and often gets on the end of a cross or through-ball. He's missed quite a few but, if he can start converting 5-10 a season he'll be a real asset. He's only 23, so still time for some of his game to develop. Give him a break.

Yes, his touch can let him down and yes, some of his passing can be erratic but again its something he can work on. I think Yates is only a few finishing touches off being a really useful Championship box-to-box midfielder. Ten or more goals in one season and he'll be worth £5-10m to someone.

There are at least 5-6 players that are wearing the shirt recently that should be strung up before Yates.

I know Yates isn't at this same level but, both Gerrard and Lampard didn't score 10+ goals in a season until they were 24-25yo.

Different calibre of players entirely, I know, but it just shows that parts of a players game can still develop well into their twenties.

It reminds of the stick McGovern used to get in the Cloughie era. Not every player can be a John Robertson you need a balance of skills. I'm not sure about Yates yet but he does try and get forward and support. I think if anything his sending off against Reading and the stic khe got has impacted his play and confidence but he still puts in a shift. However why he cops for the boo boys crown when far more talented and experienced players and not doing it either is beyond me. We seem to be good at putting down our own Osbourne was in the same position before he left. Get off their backs or we will drive all the young potential away.

Syred Robbo got stick as well for a long time, from a section of fans.

05 Jan 2021 20:12:45
Robbo,Woodcock and Birtles were all very close to being allowed to move to lower clubs but got a last chance ,history .

Government update. Scientists are saying it could be up to 10 years to find a vax for the 'virus' which has set upon Nottingham forest since the end of last season. they have put there trust to a forest banter site and all there managers to find a solution . The pm has stressed that because of the situation all those that aren't playing at the moment will receive 80$ furlough. The other 5 will be regarded as key players. The reason for this is because of the amount of deaths which could concur. One NFFC. (Banter reds were doing ok really)

Never mind a vax?
A dyson couldn't suck up that amount of s--t 🤣🤣.

Always remember a Southampton fan saying after the league cup final .
"Youd be unbeatable with eleven men "cus McGovern is crap.
Just saying.
