    He now plays in what would effectively be one of the two 'holding midfield' roles for us - albeit in Peterborough's 3-5-2 system - which does have two clear holding midfielders and a more advanced role, the advanced role usually being filled by Sammy Smodicz.
    I don't - up to this point - seen anything in Joao to suggest he would work on his game to the same degree.
    It would probably be a fairer comparison to put Jorge up against James Garner if we want a comparison to the current Forest team.
    Interesting - maybe not a like for like comparison with Joao right now then, even in terms of role in the team. Maybe you'd see him playing in that deeper role, or at least as a central midfielder rather than number 10, if he ever played again for Forest then (not that that's a likely thing to happen)?

    I think he now has the skillset where we could play him as an 8 or a 10, as the situation requires. I expect Posh to use him the same going forwards.

    Now, you are pre-supposing that all his improvement is down to the player, not the coaches at his clubs.

    How do you know this?

    Is that at me?

    I’ve not pre-supposed anything, but… if a player wants to improve they are at least part if the equation. If a player is not open to being coached, then the best coaches in the world won’t improve him. Also if a player has a desire to improve, they can train themselves.
