    I agree but he doesn’t seem to have any desire to help himself out neither

    He'll go somewhere this time and actually try because the clock is ticking on his fat contract. He's a cock sucking lizard.

    Yes we gave him that contract but that doesn't excuse his lack of application for 4 fucking years

    Drip feeding the woe is me angle is just taking the piss

    Again where is everyone finding these Cock Sucking Lizards? It seems Forest have a better scouting network than me.

    Fawaz just heard the name Clough and knew he had to have him. Was guna put him in a painting with him and his dog.

    Can't tell if you are joking or not but you just know it would be textbook Fawaz to do that.

    He had a contract shoved under his nose by Fawaz which was far more than his actual worth, why should he just walk away from it because we don't like the contract any more. When he came in, he put in plenty of good performances, enough to be encouraged about his future. His face clearly didn't fit with subsequent managers and found himself on the fringes for a long time. He has tried loan spells but they never worked out either. Let him go play football somewhere else, even if Forest have to pay the thick end of his wages. Same with anyone else in the bomb squad.
    The reason why is this:

    He is perfectly entitled to collect his ludicrous wages every week, probably more than most make on here in a year of hard graft. However I'm sure he has had no end of opportunities to go out on loan or seek a permanent move elsewhere. For whatever reason he has chosen not to. He hasn't been anywhere near the first team under a number of different managers which tells its own tale.

    By sending him out on loan and yet still picking up 100% of his daft wages we are benefiting the loaning club and also Clough completely at our expense. They get a risk free signing, and he gets to put himself in the shop window for his inevitable free transfer. All we get out of it is a mardy player away from the club, but lets be honest I can't imagine he's involved at all anyway.

    instead put him on gardening leave, let him collect his money (as that's seemingly all that's important to him), but let's not do him any favours.

    He owes us nothing, but we owe him nothing either.

    Well said FCT. He has had many opportunities to go out and play some football with us paying most, if not all of his wages as you suggest, which, aside from failed efforts at Bolton and Rochdale, he has declined, as is his prerogative.

    Putting him on 'gardening leave' would have been the appropriate course of action, except that we're obliged to provide him with the very same training, medical and rehab facilities as those players who take their professional responsibilities with the seriousness that the job demands.

    The fact that he's played less than a handful of U-23 games over the last three years possibly suggests that the likes of Jimmy Gilligan, Chris Cohen and now Andy Reid, had/have at least some disinclination about giving him game-time with their development squads.

    To the Ex-players thread with you, you waster!

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. 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“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    It feels like I have been waiting forever for the day this thread got moved to the ex players section.

    In terms of signings, yes.
    If we’re splitting hairs, there’s two academy graduates that played in the first team in Fawaz’s final season that are still here.

    Yeah he can't take any credit for them though... even though you know he would.

    Well, you did say ‘traces’ and I did say ‘splitting hairs’...so it’s pretty tenuous stuff, but you’re right, he would.

    He does hold the unique distinction of being the first Clough I’ve ever been glad to see leave Forest.

    Wait, is it official? He could change his mind at the very last minute. Wigan's printer may have ran out of ink. The world may have come to an end.
