    Burgess officially gone after 5 fantastic years
    One of my favourite things about the post Prem era for us has been how many players like him have completely got the club and the city, and done so much work for the community
    Been a real refreshing change of pace compared to having the entire squad in the VIP section of a club acting out scenes from Wolf of Wall Street or whatever goes on at prem clubs

    Huge goal that, considering our start post lockdown this has been a huge turnaround. Very good performance against a strong wolves team.

    Despite us having all in all a good season, I gotta say I feel quite disconnected with football at the moment. Forest playing but not being able to go takes all the fun out of it.

    Made me realise that I could never be an armchair fan.

    Is that the lad from our academy? I think he was a uni student playing for Gateshead when Boro picked him up

    Looks like we're moving our training base from 4G pitches on the Herefordshire/Gloucestershire border to someone further North - probably somewhere around Birmingham. Gonna be using grass pitches as well. Should enable us to attract better players as a lot of the Conference North players don't want to travel so far south to train. We're also increasing to training 3 times a week in the mornings (instead of twice a week in the evening).

    Small steps towards a return to a full time professional setup . :smiley:

    Sounds as though Brentford are signing Curtis if they don’t go up (and therefore need to replace Benrahma)
    It’s all being ripped up

    I didn’t realise quite how well Harrogate have been performing this season :open_mouth: would be nice to see some new clubs in the 92

    And now Haunstrup an outstanding young LB who was brilliant every time he played but bizarrely hated by Jackett has walked away from the club too at the end of his contract

    On the fringes of the Montpellier first-team turns down 4 year contract, Newcastle interested and he signs for Airdrie ''league 1'' Scottish Championship wouldn't even be the level of conference football.

    Has there been any news about you money wise if/when you go down? Are you completely done in, or will selling Grealish and McGinn + Parachute Payments cover you?

    Selling Grealish should see us be fine

    Sell Grealish/Mings, hold onto Luiz/McGinn, don't give a ❤️❤️❤️❤️ what happens to the rest

    Good luck trying to get anything close to what you paid for Mings based on the games I've seen him have recently. He's not even that young.

    He's not as good as I thought he was tbf, I mean he's too good for the Championship but he's been a right mess at times this season

    Someone is bound to buy him though
