    I believe he isn't a good enough player for us so should be sold.
    He is an alright player but i don't believe that he will live up to the potential he showed when he first put on the hoops 1st team jersey.
    What's your opinion of him.

    I believe he has the qualities to be a good player here, yes.

    His work rate is a different question though.

    I don't think I'd lose sleep if he followed his mate Matthews out the door.

    When he plays at his best he is a * nightmare for other teams. He fails to reach this height often however and looks a little slower than when he broke onto the scene. He's one of us and could be usefull if he overcomes his injuries, I think we should keep him for a while longer.

    Not good enough. Poor attitude and goes missing far too often.

    if there is no marked improvement in his play this season then move him on next summer.

    He is like a poor man's Samaras.

    Except Sammy had a better attitude, even though he was a lazy, hands on hips-typa * at times.

    I think he has the ability whether he can apply it for the majority of a season is still under question, i also think there are questions as to whether he uses injuries as an excuse a bit

    Could have been good if injuries didn't stop him from developing. He's pish. Just seems like a one trick pony with his pace and doesn't even really know how to use it, always plays for the whistle, can't cross or shoot that well either.

    I just can't trust him. He has a few good games, then nothing for many afterwards.

    We've been making excuses and living in hope for a few years ago. It's more hope than real anticipation now.

    I don't think he is quite good enough I am sorry to say.

    He has pace but that's it. Constantly hits the ball in front of him, races past a defender...then makes a * of the cross/pass/shot.

    Those actions are seen far too often from him.
    It's annoying as i believe he could have been an awesome player.

    As Gyp said, this sums up my opinion of him. Wouldn't miss him at all. Has flashes every now and again (no pun intended), far too seldom though. Must be on his last chance now to impress.

    He does all the hard work sprinting past the defenders etc, but his final ball is horrendous at times. I'd keep him for coming off the bench in Europe though.

    King Kenny and Henrik. Proud to have seen them both play.
    Such a pity but I think he's done.

    For the age he is, he should be MUCH further on than he is. We all know his injury problems for the past few seasons but, if we consider for a second, the likes of James Rodrigues and Neymar are his peers (same age) and they're on a different planet to Forrest.

    He should be destroying SPL defences week in, week out, so perhaps we'll see this season but I still fear he's too far gone and missed too much vital first team development time with all his injuries.

    GMS is in front of him for his own spot now.

    Comes across as very limited and hasn't progressed much at all in the last couple of years. You see how much GMS offers in comparison.
