As Martin O’Neill gets set to take charge of his first full transfer window, it’s important that he makes the right decision of who is going out, not just who is going to be coming in.
With 30-year-old Liam Bridcutt’s name being linked with a move to Peterborough and 31-year-old Claudio Yacob only featuring 17 times last season, it’s fair to say that they could both be part of O’Neill’s plans to make space and money available at The City Ground over the summer.
However, it seems that Nottingham Forest fans are unsure whether or not moving the two experienced players would be such a good idea. In the Championship you need a good mix of youth and experience but these fans aren’t sure quite where that mix should be.
Sparked off by one fan’s opinion on the two, plenty of other Forest fans jumped in on Twitter to give their views on the subject. Whilst many were of the opinion that Yacob should stay, Liam Bridcutt was proving to be a very controversial matter.
Bridcutt was solid every time he played for me, feel sorry for him as he had 1 poor game at Burton like everyone else and has never had a chance since. Be a tremendous signing for Posh or any league 1 team if they get him & hope he can go their and get his career back on track

Bridcutt was awful when he played constantly giving the ball away. Yacob very good player just getting on a bit. Yates was by far one of the better players last season proud to wear the shirt, gives everything puts his body on the line and still only young

Liam Bridcutt is lazy and bang average. Mid table championship player at best.

Bridcutt never deserved to be dropped, he was just a silent player that does a lot and out fans are to petty to see that

Claudio Yacob should be kept. He’s a very good footballer and very intelligent on the pitch. Ryan Yates could learn a lot from him.

Yates is forest blood same with worrall we need these kind of players to progress, Yacob should play more and have felt sorry for Bridcutt been treated poorly by forest #NFFC

It’s a good thing these guys aren’t in charge of picking the first eleven on a Saturday, or a team might never get picked.
