The future of our club looks really bright, but we need to take the pruning shears out at the end of the season

Murray only because he'll be 38
Dawson coaching staff

All need releasing imo

If that means we have to sell a jewel to finance this so be it!

We have some great young players coming through but need 2 young strikers Jephcott and Shankland spring to mind.

I have a difference of opinion with yourselve.

Grabban, yes he needs to go, although he has done well for Forest i think he wants to either to go to Qatar for the cash without worrying about the quality of the league, or hoping a slightly bigger team league wise to play for.

Taylor i'm in two minds about, if the manager is still with Forest next term then he does not have Taylor in his plans going off how he has treated him but for me Taylor could work well if given a proper chance, and off course it also depends on whom joins ready for the new term.

I know i was wary of Murray joining but his displays have changed my mind, if Murray was up for it i would have him as a player but also as a coach for the forwards.

Hefele, Sow, and Arter i agree with.

Colback is another player that i'm in two minds about, on the one hand i would like to see him leaving as there are parts to his game that stop the team being at their best but again would the club manage to get in whom would bring what the team needs. Colback will not leave as he will not get the wages Forest give him anywhere else.

Dawson i think would have become a coach for Forest by now if that is what he wanted as it has been clear he was not going to be playing for some time now.

Bachirou is not that young but but could have three or four years left in him, he has been unlucky with being injured since coming to Forest but his history is not that of a injury prone player and therefore i think deserves to be given a chance to show what he is made of.

When not if Forest sell a gem it will be to either fiance getting rid of the players it does not want or to bring in more players, hopefully players that the team needs, but it will not be to finance both.

Munmad, I'm hoping we are "Mowing" down opposing defences from now until the end of the season!

Grabban: Will be leaving if we can offload to free up wages.

Taylor: Don't think he has done enough to get the same wages elsewhere, so we might have to give him another season or loan him out.

Murray: Will be signed on a one-year deal. No fee and good enough to play half the games in a promotion push.

Hefele: Contract up. He won't wear the shirt again.

Sow: Contract up I think. Injury prone so will be released. Hopefully McGuane will be given a chance to replace. McGuane is a similar type of player to Sow but more skill.

Artur: Hasn't done enough to get same wages elsewhere. Stuck for a year or loaned out. Maybe with a pre-season he might do better.

Colback: I think the boss will keep him based on how often he played before he was injured. Also hasn't done enough to get same wages elsewhere. We haven't seen him at his best partly due to fitness after barely playing for two years. I predict he might do a Ben Watson and have a much better season.

Dawson: I think he was capable of playing more but no point if the boss thinks his legs aren't up to it. When he played we almost never lost a game.

Bachirou: Cheap wages but back up player at best. Don't even think the boss knows whether he wants to keep him as he just hasn't played much. McGuane is ready to be a regular.

Figueredo: Might surprise some, but I suspect he is missing home (lockdown won't have helped RE: loneliness) so probably back to Portugal or maybe Spain. Decent player but we have Mbe Soh ready to replace him. Unhappy players should be released. Will get a fee and need the money for FFP.

Blackett: If someone wants him then I suspect the boss doesn't rate him. Decent back-up but is he good enough for a promotion winning side?

Jenkinson: If the boss can get a good RB then expect he will be available. The only thing that might redeem him is that he can play LB and RB so good cover if we only have two LBs and two RBs.

Christie: Boss will only sign permanently if available cheap.


Mbe Soh in for Figs.

Brennan Johnson to replace Krovinovic (and a fit Freeman to be available at number 10)

New RB or Christie and Jordan Gabriel to fight for RB.

Knockeart on a permanent deal.
Love to see Garner back on loan again. I reckon it will be Prem loan or chance at Man United unfortunately.

We will sign another striker if Taylor or Grabban can be moved on. I predict one of them will be loaned out if we can't sell. Don't be surprised if we get a Man United youngster as a cheaper option.

Sow and murrays contracts up anyway can't see us renewing any only maybe murray.
You won't get rid of colback arter da costa buckeroo though loan deals the only option.
Grabban and taylor will probably stay and see out their contracts and the biggest earner jenkinson will see his out.
Plenty of problems to sort in the summer that's why i expect worrall to be sacrificed and maybe mighten too.
Hope not but the owners track record points in that direction.
