    Not sure whether AK wants fucking for lending him out last year, or thanking for it.

    Oh yeah, we bought in Hef instead. He wants fucking with a wire brush

    Karanka wanted experienced players. I wholeheartedly disagreed with the lending out of Worrall but it's not like it was unexpected. Brereton, McKay, Smith and Dowell all got bombed out even though they had all at points contributed to a decent enough first half of the season.

    The only young player that kept his place was Cash because he could hustle.

    Probably didn't help Karanka in his eventual sacking. Had he persisted with some of the young players who were more than good enough to retain their places he might have got more leeway from the owner when the form started to dip a bit during that Christmas period. It's at that point he could have said "I need reinforcements - players with experience" but he'd already spunked his load on that in the previous window.

    I dunno. A year at rangers suited all parties - Joe got lots of big crowd experience, we got an improved and better rounded CB back.

    Maybe he’d have done it last season, maybe he wouldn’t. Going on facts right now Joe looks a much better player than the last time he pulled on a red shirt

    As things stand he has returned a better player than when he left, therefore it was a good loan.

    By all means believe the club statement if you want, but it makes no sense to me whatsoever that he engineered the situation for his own benefit as was the insinuation at the time given he's still, a year later, unemployed.

    From the horses mouth:

    "Aitor Karanka is hungry to manage again four months after his exit from Nottingham Forest.

    In his first interview since his departure from the City Ground, Karanka revealed he took the decision to quit Forest to give them a chance of promotion.

    Karanka’s exit from the City Ground in January was one of the most bizarre stories of the season as the fans were desperate for him to stay but the uncertainty around his job forced him out."

    Welcome to the World of Football, if he doesn't like pressure then he shouldn't manage.

    Not sure it suited us when we went on a shite run of games coz we'd no decent cb's fit though.

    We are where we are though. Just glad we've had the sense to keep and play him this year

    Worrall always looked the part, despite the odd mistake. He's an England captain, FFS!

    The errors have largely been cut out and he looks ready to play a vital role this season. If we can defend well, we have the potential to win by 2 or 3. So far, Dawson and Worrall have been magnificent.

    But he was a proven winner. Just what we needed.

    Exactly.

    Worrall would have grown just as much here, if not more, had he stayed last season. He's just a young lad developing. Where he ply's his trade isn't gonna affect that. Rather it here with us than in Scotland whilst we rely on Hef or Benalou instead.

    I always think that there is a twofold gain from sending young lads out on loan.

    One is the simple one of experience. They are not going to play regularly at their parent club. Plus they experience a different club ethos and practices.

    They have lived and played in the bubble of their parent club for all their formative years, they have had no experience of life. Joe has now been to a very different culture, to a very different area and must have seen and done things he could only dream of at home.

    These things will make him a more rounded person as well as a better footballer, IMO.

    Karanka said it himself, sorry but you'll need another stick to beat the club with.

    On the flip side, by staying they've another year to settle in with their team mates, and another year growing into the familiarity of the club.

    But we are where we are. Just really glad Worrall wasn't bomb squaded this year.

    I like the fact we have a head coach now, that he’s more hands-on with the players. And if comments are to be believed that the players are enjoying the coaching too.

    Did Karanka’s coaching improve the players that he had? Maybe that’s partly why the youngsters were ignored - some good potential there but he knew developing it wasn’t his thing. I never bought the fact that top 6 means no youngsters. All the top 6 will have some youngsters.

    The current set-up and guy just seems better.

    According to Karanka (in that Mirror article) he resigned because he didn't care about severance money and wanted his successor to have more of the transfer window. Righto.

    Agreed. With Mouch we seemed to have retirned to the more Warburton-esq way of operating, by showing faith in youth and Forest stalwarts first, complimenting them with signings after.

    That's a far more healthier way to operate, and a far better fit for a club like ours too.
