The one that got away?

You could certainly make the case that that’s what happened to Lewis McGugan.

The Nottingham Forest academy graduate is probably most famous for his goal against Ipswich Town during the 2010/11 season, a goal that won the award for greatest scored at The City Ground but went on to have a reasonably successful time at the City Ground, scoring 43 times in 224 appearances, before moving to Watford in the summer of 2013.

Paul Taylor wrote an article for The Athletic in which he spoke about his career both for Forest and after, and it sparked a little bit of a debate amongst those in the Forest fanbase, and it’s fair to say that they weren’t all that complimentary about him.

Indeed many of them said that it was his attitude that stopped him from potentially playing at a higher level, and that they never really saw the best of what he could do in a Forest shirt, because it certainly wasn’t his ability that was holding him back.

Would you take Lewis McGugan back as a free agent?

Yes

Yes

No

No

At 31, so long as he hasn’t dropped off completely in terms of talent, it wouldn’t be the worst idea would it?
