If we need the funds for incomings, Forshaw to Fulham for a decent profit on the £4.5m we paid for him would suit me just fine . Don't rate him in either of the two midfield slots where KP is far superior at 4 and MK much better at 8 . We could cover his absence with a loanee and / or Shackleton and other under 23's . If we could get £6 or £7m off Fulham and their parachute payments it's a no brainer for me and should mean we keep our prized assets, with Saiz and some of the other fringe players also adding to the transfer pot .

A loanee like Baker 😜.

Can’t see us getting 6 or 7 million for Forshaw! Be lucky to get our money back! Don’t think we have seen the best of him but not a favourite of mine!

16 Jun 2019 10:37:01
Think we have seen the best of him unfortunately!

16 Jun 2019 10:49:36
Have to agree, he isn't the player for us. I would be happy if we got our money back for him, as long as Radz reinvests it in the squad.

Forshaw is technically one of the best players in the squad but unfortunately he appears to be made of glass and is neither a defensive midfielder or has to ability to score. Ideally he should be used in a 3 man midfield and he does keep the ball moving forward.

If I remember correctly didn't Bielsa start with Forshaw as DM and Phillips only took over once Forshaw got injured?
If so who am I to argue with MB!

Canada you don’t remember correctly . Forshaw was injured beginning of season and consistently messed up the defensive midfield role thinking he had the ability to play quarter back when he doesn’t!

Canada - 'fraud your memory on this point is not correct. Phillips did start at DM, and Forshaw was injured during pre-season, which was what gave Klich the chance to start, in his place. Bielsa's mistake (which he eventually admitted) was in moving KP from DM to to CB (bringing in Forshaw at DM) in the New Year to cover injuries. Should have stuck with Halme at CB. It was that run of games, with loss of defensive solidity, that unfortunately undermined our whole season.

Forshaw injured in pre-season.

Bang on Notts. He’s a good player and handy because he can play a few roles in midfield but he can’t seem to stay healthy. Personally I’d sell due to his injury problems.

Klich took over from Forshaw.
