    Are we feeling the benefit of his sale?

    Looking at the squad, did our squad additions which stepped in against Wigan help us out as much as having Ben as an option would have?

    Robinson on the bench, Ribero at LB, Osborn LW may have worked better?

    Oh sweet Lord in heaven (if you exist and are listening to me)

    Please make it stop.



    I'll even go to church on Sunday and not try to nick the lead from the roof this time.

    Of course we're benefiting from selling him. We're 4th in the league.

    With super Ben we'd have been 4 points clear at the top.

    Who is this Ben Osborn I hear you talk about?

    Why is he important to our success or otherwise?

    I think we offloaded him at the right time. He's not going to be able to focus so much on his football this season what with his GCSEs coming up.

    Last 2 matches have proved otherwise

    Been debated in the Carva thread that he looked a better player alongside Benny.

    What about Lolley? another player who benefitted from having Benny's busy body buzzing bilaterally beside him.

    I was thinking about this earlier, and wondered to myself what role Ben would fill in the current team. I'd have him in ahead of Ameobi in a heartbeat as the left of the attacking three - and he'd also be a better option than when Yuri has been shoehorned onto the wing.

    Ameobis already beaten more men than Osborn did in his Forest career, he's also built better for the job.

    I still cant think of an attribute Benny had that we're missing.

    I'd have preferred it if we kept him but at the same time i'm not too fussed he's gone and I think we got a good deal for him. He might have wanted to leave anyway.
    He's come on as sub twice in the prem so he's hardly made a big impression up there. I don't remember him making the difference too many times when he was here so I doubt he'd have been the difference against Wigan or Hull. (Yes I remember the derby goal and that free kick)
    And off the top of my head we signed Sow and Samba for less than what we got for Osborn and both of them contribute more

    Ameobi's record this season is one assist and one goal in 794 minutes of football. Heady stuff.

    Versatility, consistency & to a lesser degree availability off the ball.

    I like Ameobi as a wildcard option, I think for a free he's a decent signing, but Jenks would be the better comparison for me as he's where 2/3rds of the Benny money went, and if you included wages by the end of the year wheat we'll pay out for Jenks will be what we got for Benny.

    Jenks sat injured doing nowt, or even benched when fit, or Benny as a versatile wide options? No brainer for me, latter every time.

    Folk say we couldn't have stopped Benny going to the Prem. Well we could have offered him a better contract last year, and then at least got more for him.

    Alternatively we could have spent the £3m on a striker, literally any striker!!

    Hasn't even made the bench for a few matches. We know whilst he was here that Benny is rarely injured...

    Think we are missing him.

    Always showed for the ball, always lively, alternate option to Robinson, linked up well with Carva, and IMO would have fit into Mouch's side bang on.

    Games like last night were happening with him in the team.

    He wasn't changing games like that.

    He also didn't have all the new players around him either.

    I'm with Alf, under the circumstances I'd rather him be here at Forest than sat in the stands at the Blunts.
