He was decent last night when he came on at Bristol Rovers, though not spectacular. Gueye was probably more effective in what he does, i.e. breaking up the possession of the opposition.

Apart from getting turned too easily in the build up to their goal and sticking a free kick into the wall I don't really remember him doing anything.

This is THE season for Gary. Make or break. Hopefully, he comes good as there is definitely a player in there somewhere.
Heard this before

Yes but successive managers have loaned him out, rather than have him as part of the squad.  Too much negative thinking has got us where we are now.  Successive managers have taken the easy option.

Think Sherwood was going to use him in the squad last season until that idiot Swindon player in the preseason friendly thought he was Claudio Gentile & wiped him out for 3 months+

There's def a player in there but this is his last year as he'll be in his mid twenties by then

I think his time is past sadly. He can take a decent deadball but apart form that... well not much. Not sure we can afford to add yet another poor midfielder to our squad.

But does it not appear that recent managers have all been in agreement that while a fair player he is unlikely to succeed even at the top level of the Championship?

Not from my perspective, I think that the managers felt he was not good enough, at the time, and thought he would improve more and quicker by playing regularly in the championship.  We were a league higher at the time and had better alternatives too.

I fear we saw just what Gardner offers today ....... other than his rugby tackle what did he actually do?
So to all the fans who believe he has been treated harshly...... well he made Bacuna looks world class today let alone Champions League
Sorry GG but not unto the standard we need

Didn't look fully fit, would be tempted to replace him with Tshibola next league game.

Tbf the rugby tackle was bought by the wednesday player who saw there were few options ahead checked his run to draw the foul. He didnt have a great game but you can't judge him until he's had a decent run in the side.

Which would be OK if he could run faster than me.

Trust football fans more than the media - I know a lot of forest fans and they all wanted him back.

Should never be in a two, hasn't got the legs. Not a good game today but i'll not be writing him off anytime soon based on one match
