    Exactly. His next contract wherever it is will be on about three times our top earner.

    He has been garbage this year but he played well last year. Good luck to him strange he is considered a decent backup but Hughton must have plans.

    Good luck chap.

    I didn't rate him as much as a lot of others, for me he benefitted hugely from Cash & Lolley's storming partnership down the other flank, but he gave his best and seems a good bloke.

    If rumours are to be believed, the club's treatment of him is nowt short of awful, so I hope wherever he goes next he doesn't get messed about as much.

    Deserves credit for being one of the best divers at the club we've had in a while. Good at rolling around semi-convincingly after too.

    Aside from his 1 goal my main memory will be Yuri walking away from Jake Livermore's leg breaker. One of those that VAR would have given a red for.

    Shows how average our recruitment has been for a side that wants promotion that Yuri looks like he is inevitably going a free. If we had shit hot recruitment we’d be selling Yuri for 10 mill this summer instead of Worrall and go and get another left back for far less. I actually think Yuri can be a decent backup especially with some specialised coaching but maybe Hughton thinks he’s reached his peak?

    It's probably worth a cheeky bid for Ronaldo while we're at it.

    Even if we could afford Bertrand (we can't) why on earth would be want to join a lower table championship club that has underachieved for decades?

    It could be asked why on earth do we continue supporting a club that has underachieved for over two decades?

    Very poor decision to let him go on a free

    Hopefully Houghton’s got something up his sleeve

    Not a bad player. Remember sitting at out trouncing at Arsenal last year thinking he looked too good for our cup team. And he was. A decent left back in our best team for nine years. Also a big diver and squealer, didn't enjoy watching that side of his game.

    Found out about this 10 mins ago & I'm over it. I'm sometimes lost on others sentiments given the sum total of these players contributions.

    Unfortunate for him he didn't fit the approach, but weak physically, couldn't deliver a cross, prone to positional errors & lets just call it "went down very easy with maximum dramatical effect". Sadly with these coming to the fore this season his legacy has been somewhat diluted.

    If we can't do better, we might as well pack up. Iannou was better, but that option looks to have gone.

    Why does any fan outside of the top half of the Premier League support their club? It's the triumph of hope over expectation. Statistically the chances of any of those teams actually winning anything of note is negligible.

    If you're a optamist/fantasist you're happy with the dream that one day you'll see your club competing at 'the top'. If you're a realist then you just hope that the good times just about outweigh the bad. Neither makes you more or less of a supporter.

    You can be critical of a club and despair at its continual lurching from disaster to disaster while still being a fan.

    I've failed to understand our transfer policy(not really applicable) for years.

    Well, there’s your first mistake; assuming Forest actually have both a policy and any clue as to what they’re doing.

    „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.”

    But busted a gut and wasn't Bong. So he had his plus points.

    I thought he was an average Championship level full back.

    Sentiments probably can go far either way.

    What sums up his time here.

    1.) Fairly consistent/steady and therefore held down the position of LB which has been problematic and rare
    2.) Was still relatively young on signing & wouldn't have been costing us a fortune
    3.) Maybe linked to (2) lacked consistency in executing in the final 3rd & could be aerially exposed at the back post
    4.) Didn't come back the same player after lockdown
    5.) You could see playing every game he did meant something to him. Humble but driven.

    We probably had to make this decision but it would be meaningless if we don't sign anyone better than him and off-load players who have made less of a contribution and probably paid a little more than him (Bong) or similar (Blackett/Iaonnou).

    A good transfer policy would have seen a loan or short-term older pro come in to challenge Yuri in January 20 instead of Bong on long term contract.

    Then an upgrade on Yuri last summer, with Yuri’s contract extended to be decent backup.

    Not signing Bong and Blackett til 2022 and Ioannou til 2023, loaning Ioannou out straight away, losing Ribeiro for free and trying to find a buyer for an overpaid over the hill Bong.

    Pretty sure most of us said that at the time too.....
