    Didn't realise that was his full name, Omogbolahan is incredible. Starts African finishes Irish.

    The boy has good feet , Reminds me of a slim Antonio but with more control.

    He is short on end product. 4 goals and 14 assists in 96 matches does not compare well. Looks good with the ball at his feet, mind.

    I also like the fact that he didn't make of meal of it when shoved in the face. Sure we can coach that out of him.

    He's who should've come in when Burke went after Leeds.

    Having looked at the result, Ariyibi played 90 minutes and Chesterfield lost 4-1.

    This would be a decent signing actually. He's very quick and he's direct.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the end product. By all accounts he has started to fulfil his potential at Chesterfield so maybe a bit of a late bloomer in the Antonio mould.

    A strong central midfielder and some creativity already signed and now we are looking at a pacey winger? Whisper it quietly, but perhaps somebody knows what they are doing at Forest. My money is on GB and JL

    A pretty positive write up... http://www.footballleaguescout.com/g...-scout-report/

    Just seen a thread about him on DCFC fans website from the summer when they and others were apparently looking at him. All the posters seemed keen, which is worth bearing in mind when they start telling us what a bad signing he is...

    Just asked a Chesterfield st holder who I work with about this chap and he says he will be a great signing. Apparently he could have gone in the last window, 850k was offered but Chairman wanted 1.5 Million. My mate said this probably affected his form but recently he's back to his best, he goes on to say that under the right manager he will be a good player, very tricky and pacy, he saw him last in the game against Wimbledon and apparently they couldn't cope with him. In summary a Raw talent who could turn out to be a real Gem.

    "Just spoke to my Town ST holder mate, goes away too and he says hes a 1 good game in 10 player. we definitely don't need any more of those."

    "There are many frustrating players who show glimpses of potential at lower levels and just need that step up with better players around them and more space to really click and I think Gboly could be one of them."

    "Well,I sung his praises before the season but blimey he looked average today."

    "I can't see why we would be interested in a player who throughout his career so far hasnt been able to find any consistency whatsoever. "

    There are more negative comments on there than positive ones; The most positive comment (Fairly disappointed in this... Think he was a hot prospect) came after it was reported that we are in for him.

    Unless you're talking about a different thread on a different forum...

    Hence why he's leaving.

    That's going to be expensive at 75p a letter, for the replica shirt.

    Similar things were said by Wednesday fans about Antonio.

    This is on a Derby forum, not a Chesterfield one.

    Just realised if he plays in front of Lichaj does that make our 'right wing American'? #MakeForestGreatAgain

    My point was players play differently for different managers and setups.
    Time will tell. It's all a risk. But I'd rather us take a risk on a younger, raw potential than an established ex-PL player in decline.
