Jamie Ward, does he divide opinion? Do too many, perhaps unfairly, have negative thoughts towards the Nottingham Forest, formerly Sheffield United and of course ex-Derby, forward?

Old Red Fart doesn’t feel there’s much not to like about Ward, loaned out to Burton earlier in the season before returning to help Forest secure Championship survival.

They said: ‘Not seeing the games I’m in no position to take a 100% view of any player but have noticed for months that Ward seems to be quite unpopular with what seems like a majority of you.

‘I’ve never quite understood it since to me he’s always seemed like the sort of player who’s a pain in the anus to the other side. By that I mean that he seems to rub up opponents fairly quickly and I reckon that always helps. And now and then he scores. And he mostly seems to give 100%. Doesn’t seem too bad to me.

‘And I’ve just noticed on the Ipswich game that he’s polling 48% on MoM.

‘What’s not to like about him?’

A seasoned professional, what do you think of Northern Ireland international Ward? Is that previous at Derby clouding the judgment of some?
