    He'll get better the more we lose and the more he doesn't play

    It was an ok first start. He will come on from it.

    He should have had more sub appearances which is what should happen at the start of next season. For now would keep giving him starts to build into things but we need to play to his strengths. My only concern.

    Only saw him go down easily once, in fairness. Ref didn't see fit to pull him up on it either. He's no Brereton in that regard, yet.

    He has the pace to skin most in this league but last night showed he's still short on strength and confidence. Potential to be a key player but I think needs a lot more match time first. With Lolley and Cash fit, something will have to give on the wings. Putting Lolley in the middle to accommodate the other 2 didn't work.

    Defensive players hate having to play against pace.

    Arvin showed some nice touches and a few tricks. He’s got.... something.

    I’d be tempted to leave him in the side for the rest of the season; we aren’t going to be troubling the playoffs so let’s see what he can really do, the experience will benefit him no doubt.

    Oh and stop fucking about and put Lolley back on the other wing and being back Carvalho.

    I don't see the team play regularly, but initially it seemed that Arvin's pace was part of our plan and a big hoof upfield at every opportunity to get him away, but accuracy was lacking.

    Personally I think wingers with pace play better when they are running forward and the ball is pushed through into their path rather than lobbed over the top. The ball spends so long in the air the defender can easily move into a covering position.

    Agree with this.

    The season is over so give the lad a run of games to gain experience. He was ineffectual last night and looked a bit overawed, but he clearly has something.

    Aye, keep him in the side for a bit and see how he gets on. Then in the summer it will probably be best to look at loaning him out so he can get a full season under his belt and come back stronger.

    I think it was a bit naive to give him a start away from home at a resurgent club like SWFC.
    It would have been much better to have given him his starting chance at home.
    And with the defence playing "pass the responsibility" hoofball in the belief that somehow a raw youngster would be able to outsmart experienced defenders and turn the game was doubly naive.

    One of the bonus aspects of having players like Appiah on, in spite of him struggling, was that it freed up Lolley to have one of his best games under MON. Usually, Lolley is the only attacking threat on the pitch and so teams just double up on him and we have nothing else. Last night, with a mix of Lolley, Appiah and Cash, the Wendies couldn't just focus on Lolley which finally gave him room to do something.

    If Arvin stays in the side and begins to settle then we could at least see the Lolley we saw earlier in the season return to end the season on a positive.

    Could equally say that an expectant home crowd could be too much for first team start. Sighing at every miss placed pass

    Maybe a home 30min sub appearance wouldve been nest.

    Shouldn't have took him off. Think everytime he tried to beat his man he did or he won something.

    Put a full back that can work with him and overlap and he could really do some damage. Sadly due to the formation today he couldn't do much which is on MON not him.

    Should have been used as a super sub long before now.
    He was targeted today everytime he got the ball.
    Linked up better with Byram when switched to the right , Like he does with Richardson in the u23s.
    If we had a better LB then he would flourish.
    Stick him on the right with Byram. Lolly on the left

    Showed some quick feet and speed. Think some times it’s up to the player to get himself available to receive the ball. He is young and will learn.

    Think there has been interviews with him. iFollow too.

    How one man has rolled back the years to help Arvin Appiah torment opposition defences with Nottingham Forest
    Steve Guppy was a trusted winger for Martin O'Neill at Wycombe, Leicester and Celtic - and is sharing his wisdom with the next generation at Forest

    Arvin Appiah believes Steve Guppy can roll back the years to help Nottingham Forest’s wingers torment the Championship.

    Teenage wide man Appiah hopes to have a bigger role to play at the City Ground next season, after getting his first taste of the action under Aitor Karanka and Martin O’Neill.


    The 18-year-old product of the Nigel Doughty Academy praised former winger Guppy for the influence he has already had on the training ground.

    Guppy played under Martin O’Neill at Wycombe, Leicester and Celtic, notching up more than 500 appearances with nine different clubs, scoring 50 goals.

    The 50-year-old was himself a classy wide man - and Appiah says he has been passing on his knowledge, as part of O’Neill’s coaching staff at Forest.

    “We have Steve Guppy, who does a lot of one-v-one work with us,” said Appiah, who has made two starts and five sub appearances for the Reds, after scoring on his debut off the bench, at Burton in the EFL Cup in October.

    “That has helped me so much. We worked on step overs, we work on body movements that can help us to outwit our opponents.

    “It is very good to have somebody like him, who has come in to help the wingers.

    “I have watched videos of him playing… he looks as though he was decent. And he has helped me a lot now.”

    Appiah says Joe Lolley has also been a big help, as he looks to continue his development with the Reds.

    “Joe has been a big influence as well. He is left footed, just like I am and he has told me a lot of ways in which I can hopefully better my game.

    “I have liked him being around with me. He has been good for me.”

    O’Neill is a manager who has had a fondness for traditional wingers, who like to take on their man, since the days when he and Guppy first joined forces at Wycombe.

    And Appiah says that is exactly what O’Neill has told him to do, since he broke into the first team ranks - torment opposition defenders.

    “I think the manager has given me a lot more confidence, because he knows I have ability, he knows what I can do, in attacking duels,” said Appiah. “He just wants me to get on the ball, to beat players, to commit players.

    “He just wants me to be positive every time I get on the ball.

    “Our aim next season is to get promotion, of course. But my personal aim is to show the crowd and the world what I can do. That is probably it. That is what I want to do.

    Arvin Appiah is looking to build on his first season in the Nottingham Forest first team and help The Reds push on in 2019-20.

    The academy graduate made his breakthrough in this campaign, scoring on his debut against Burton Albion, and he wants to continue to work hard and make even more appearances next term.

    He said: “For my first season with the first team, I think it has gone well, making my debut, scoring on my debut and getting a few appearances towards the end of the season.

    “I just want to thank the manager and the academy staff for their hard work because without them it wouldn’t have been possible. I just have to keep working hard when the season starts to get as many appearances as I can, I can’t wait.

    “It is good to have rest, get your head away from football and then in pre-season you have got to be focused so I can try and catch the manager’s eye.

    “We have all got to work hard as a collective, push each other to the maximum and anything is possible.”

    Appiah is set to join up with the England Under 18s squad this week as they travel to Slovakia for an eight-team tournament, with the forward keen to make an impression on the international stage.

    He said: “It is the last tournament for the Under 18s’ season so I am privileged to have been selected again and to put on the Three Lions’ shirt.

    “We want to go there and win the tournament. It would be nice to get a few goals and come back with the trophy.

    “Every time I put that shirt on, I feel humbled and blessed to be wearing the Three Lions because I have played from the Under 15s to the Under 16s, 17s, 18s and 19s and it is a good feeling putting on that shirt.”
