Retained players

According to BBC Nottingham, the list of retained players will be announced today.

In my view, bye-bye to:

  • Krissy (not as big a loss as one would think - never fit and recently been playing well, just as his contract was due)
  • Gary Holt (had his best match in a Forest shirt in the first leg against Yeovil, had an absolute stinker in the second)
  • John Curtis (what point is a full-back who won't tackle?)
  • Rune Pedersen (I think he is out of contract - if so, good luck to you wherever you go)
  • Wes (not out of contract, but in my opinion is not good enough and would deservedly be behind Breckin and Chambers in the pecking order)

I would like to see Jack stay (and possibly play in midfield next year), but am not sure whether he will get a new deal. I think it goes without saying that we will say goodbye to Nicky Eaden and John Thompson.

I have deliberately kept quiet for the last few days, both literally and metaphorically (lost my voice on Friday night, only just coming back now). It is very rare that I say "I don't want to talk about it", but that is exactly how I have felt...

UPDATE: I forgot about our loanees - I wouldn't mind "Mini-me" Alan Wright signing, the question might be whether he would get any better offers; as for Prutts, I think he managed to finish his own Forest career with that red card.

I feel sorry for Jack - this is the second time this has happened to him.

New contract offers to Krissy (as expected), as well as Spencer, and a couple of the kids.
