    The one thing I liked about Britt bar his goals was that he played football with a smile on his face something you don't see very much these days,good luck to the lad.If he scores against us and smiles he can get fucked.

    15 Million is a great bit of business. We've not only pulled Middlesbrough's pants down we've done 'em d*ggy style!

    A gamble for sure, but what choice do the club have? At least he leaves the club with his credibility in fact, the way he's conducted himself, even throughout some criticisms from fans has been great. Losing a professional is a shame.
    Fond memories of Britt the goal scorer, but Britt the professional?

    There are some players who put it in unconditionally & others who let it be known they aint happy. Thought Britt showed glimpses of the latter in some of the Pearce reign & definitely when he was playing that lone role with the ball bouncing off him.

    Great goalscorer, but wouldnt necessarily have the "ultimate pro" in his legacy as a Forest player.

    The daft lad probably thinks he is due some of the "sell on" money.

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“

    Yeah, he's wished Ben Brereton all the best for this season with Britt having now gone. What a horrible man

    He's a-gonner-for-wonga then.

    I really wanted to see him do a full season with us. That said he might not make a full season with 'Boro either, who knows.

    Let's face it , he probably got some abuse from some so-called fans and hence why he felt the need to explain himself.

    100% agree with this, whilst I enjoyed seeing him score, Nottingham Forest have lost far better players than Britt over the years and we are still here, albeit barely if you listen to some folk. This season was always about consolidation, mid table, (hopefully) attractive football, shaping the squad into a tight knit group of players on sensible wages that Warburton feels he can mould into a successful outfit. It's going to be ok lads, we ain't going down and we certainly aren't going up. Lets make some noise tomorrow night and on Saturday shall we? U Reds

    Had to sell Britt, due to circumstances and the player wanting to go.
    The release clause meant Boro would have to pay a very hefty sum to get him... which they were forced to do.
    Lets not forget that they tried a few times to get him cheaper, and the Forest heirarchy rejected every bid fairly quickly.

    We were forced to sell... got a good deal... end of story.
    Hopefully MW can push the team forward from this, and lets not forget that Britt was in every team that has gradually finished lower and lower every season.

    What concerns me is we are now even more lightweight physically as a team than last season. With Britt we had a player who was capable of holding his own against big CH's albeit his ball control was at times poor. Brereton in a few years will develop that way by the looks of him but isn't there yet and it would be foolish to think an 18 year old can lead the line THROUGHOUT the season. Indeed, there's a risk that Brereton's confidence will be undermined if his initial success fails to consolidate throughout the season. He needs time to grow with the right level of support around him. He will be the real deal. Not just yet. Only Vellios has those attributes yet hasn't shown he's the solution to holding the ball when playing one up top. So, either MW has to change the style so knocking up to a holding striker is changed to running the ball at the defence from the wings or through the middle or we sign a ready made replacement who can bring the others into the game by winning the challenges and holding up the ball.

    We know our central midfield is not want it needs to be. Again, not enough ball winners but perhaps McKay will change that as well as Grant and Cash's increasing experience. At the end of the day we may play attractive football but it's pointless (literally) if it doesn't end up in the right net.

    Worried.

    Why not?

    Serious question, I'm old enough to remember an 18-year old Ronaldo (the decent Brazilian one, not that Portuguese ponce) and an 18-year old Wayne Rooney absolutely terrorising defences at the top level.

    Indeed, when Ronaldo burst onto the scene at PSV, he was 17, but looked even younger.

    I am not for one minute claiming Ben Brereton is in that class (well, not yet...) but claiming he cannot do it because he's only 18, is a bit nonsensical.

    And the way Mark Warburton will probably have Forest playing, a fluid 4-3-3, may well mean that a "Striker" wouldn't necessarily have to lead the line alone or play with his back to goal.

    Certainly that isn't the way his Brentford side did it.

    Don't see we've lost anything Physically up front, Id take Brereton over Britt all day long when it comes to playing with his back to goal. Also think we'll get a more mobile, proactive striker on & off the ball.

    No issues with confidence either, the lad seems keen to come back for more.

    Totally confident in Brereton leading the line.

    If he's good enough, he's old enough.

    If Brereton was the main striker then I'd be a bit worried, simply because it's a lot to burden a youngster with.

    But as it is I think the lone forward role will be very much up for grabs, and that he'll do well with healthy competition alongside him able to step in if he aint quite firing.

    If true you would think it would be pending the player agreeing terms and therefore wanting to go or not?

    Bet Suarez thought fuck that I'm holding out for Barca or Real.

    After careful consideration :

    Bollocks to you, Assombalonga, you disloyal mercenary. This is repayment for standing by you when you popped your knee, is it? Well, screw you.

    And your agent, Jarman, the parasitic scum-wading bastard - he can get fucked. Stay away from Nottingham. You're not welcome here.

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Has to be said, we have looked after him big time in terms of wages & support. I can see why he'd move, but I definitely think he still owes us.

    Karma will come a knocking.

    It was ages ago and like I said it's probably not true that Suarez even had a release clause else he would've gone to Barca for £40m not £65m.

    As a battle-hardened fan, I'm surprised you (and others) can be arsed to feel this way. Players come and go. Does anyone expect 'career' players in this day and age?
