And now, the end is near, and so he faces the final curtain.
OK, that might be a little bit dramatic, but at least we can say that we won’t have to be dealing with him anymore.
Nottingham Forest confirmed yesterday that Rafa Mir has left the City Ground and will return to Wolverhampton Wanderers, although it seems likely that he’ll head out on loan once more very soon, with recent reports linking him to Real Zaragoza, so I doubt he’ll be out of action for too long.
My only thought about this, is that it must mean there is a signing imminent when it comes to the forward department, or at least that’s what I hope is going to happen. Much like some people question whether you should leave a job before you have a new one already lined up, Nottingham Forest are in very much a similar situation when it comes to their centre-forwards.
Whilst Mir didn’t have the most productive of times at the City Ground, failing to score a single goal during his time here and not really offering much even in his brief appearances, it does seem like an awful big risk to let him go if they don’t have someone lined up in the pipeline to take his place on the bench.
For instance, what happens if Lewis Grabban injures himself in training tomorrow and is out of the game on Sunday? Then we’re going to be running around trying to find a replacement because the replacement hasn’t been brought in yet.
Should the club recall Tyler Walker this window?
So hopefully, the club will have someone lined up to replace him, both in the short-term and in the long-term, otherwise we could really be shooting ourselves in the foot by jumping the gun on the matter.
