    Default End of season - mass exodus

    Now we are entering the second part of the season, one thing that is worrying me that hasn't been spoken about is players leaving next year.

    Players like MM, Antonio, Britt, Burke, fryatt I believe would of come here on the pretence that we were going to challenging for at least a PO. This isn't happening so would these players look for a move away to other clubs ?

    Add these players along with players that have had new contracts like the Hobbs and Lansburys of this world, these nucleus of players will no doubt review the season and whether forest is the right place for them.

    Personally I could see quite a revolving door happen.

    You've got too much time on your hands if you're looking for more things to worry about.

    What if the anniversary kit is not Adidas?

    I was thinking the same last night, and I think I'm generally considered to be a happy clapper, so it's not really fair to say 8ball's just being negative.

    Not so worried about the summer signings but I reckon Lansbury, Pato and Hobbs will definitely be looking to get out this summer.

    They can only go if we let them. If we can't replace them, we won't sell them.

    I saw the thread tittle and initially thought it was about fans saying fuck this I've had enough and not renewing their ST.

    Hobbs owes us because Forest have been very patient with him trying to get him back to full fitness. And which clubs will take a chance on him with his dire injury record?

    That may happen too!

I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    There's zero chance of an exodus, because they're all being paid handsomely.

    It's party year next year anyway. Balloons and jelly season. Everybody wants to be at the party.

    Thanks

    It was a question to everyone if they thought it cud happen.

    If we are near the top it's easy for a player to think 'with a couple of new additions and an extra year together we can get promotion next year'

    But if their thinking 'phew that was close. Nearly got relegated' will then look for a move

    I think it's a valid concern to have

    And that is the cunning plan!
    Assemble a squad for winning the Championship in our anniversary season...
    You couldn't write it in a novel!

    I'm still sad that Webb left. Told myself I'd never allow myself to get hurt like that again.

    Let em go. Don't care.

    And I was the same when Ian Storey-Moore was sold to Man U - wept tears of hurt and anger.

    Tbh I've thought the same for some time, which is why our best plan is to get the most out our youth - both already here and what we can aquire from elsewhere.

    Step forward ex EU21's manager with a massive international youth portfolio and contact base Stuart Pearce.

    Out of all the reasons Pearce should stay, thats in the top 1 in my book.

    11 player with attitudes like Ben Osborne is something I'd thrive on.

    Personally, I'm more concerned at the number of posters unable to differentiate between the use of 'have' and 'of' in a sentence.

    Do people really worry about this stuff though? I think you're worrying your life away if so.

    Paterson probably should be looking to move. His career is going backwards. Hobbs looks good when he plays, but he's spent half his time injured. If this is all we're getting out of him, I'll be over it as soon as he hands in a transfer request. Lansbury has been at Forest a bit longer, but it's not been two and half years of brilliance. Antonio has been good, but he's only been at Forest six months. It hasn't be a vintage Forest six months and he wasn't even on the pitch when the one classic moment happened. When we're willing Assombalonga to score 25 goals, we're also willing him to earn his next move. I don't want them to go, but if they do good luck to them.

    As a fan you feel attached to Cohen and Reid. And it's nice to see the youth players come through. But most of them leave as soon as a better offer comes in. It's the January transfer window. Are we really already worried about who leaves in the summer one?

    No I actually agree with 8ball on this one, Assombalonga and Antonio will be gone in the summer should we fail to mount any sort of promotion challenge, that's just the way modern football works outside of the Premier League.
    The teams in the league above will look at the clubs in the lower league who have standout players but just aren't reaching the potential as a team, and like the vultures they are swoop in and put an offer in. I guess kind of like we did with Assombalonga.

    The only comfort I could see is that should we lose both Britt and Antonio, it might ease our FFP ban and have it lifted in the summer to be able to attempt to replace them, however if we lost our big names without the ability to replace them we'd be in a big mess.

    This isn't just a concern on the basis of last nights result, this has been a concern for several months now.

    I think we can all help 8ball chill.

    You could but it would take 4 years to publish
