Wonder why he was subbed today? Seemed a strange move.

I thought he was struggling a bit, some very errant distribution. He had a few nice turns and runs but he looked a tad tired today and we need him fresh for Saturday.

Keep hearing people talking about forwards. I really don’t think we need one. It might be upset the current setup which is working. Agree that we need a left back and then Monty can get back to challenging for a wingers spot.

 

If we are carrying on playing one up front we don’t need another striker.

We have a top class striker in Cullen who isn’t given a chance because Askey insists on playing one up front no matter if we are playing Swindon or Stevenage.

Also don’t believe in paying more than 50k for a player who has only played 17 league matches.

30k plus sell on clause is a fair offer but Notts Forest can smell the money from the Man City game.

Dont think Phil Sproson is being honest when he says he will try to keep him at Vale.

He will get a wedge from the sale and is more interested in attracting competing bids to push up the price.

I spoke to Jake Taylor's brother randomly at half time and he said he wanted to stay. We had both had more than a few beers though so read into that what you like but he is very happy here.

He's a prospect, glad if we could sign him up on reasonable terms. But he's not the dog's testicles as of now. I'd be more bothered about getting Gibbo Smithy Joycey Leggey signed up.

His Last Ryan Lloyd rant got him a month in the naughty corner 😂

Hopefully he has learned his lesson so I don’t have to read the vitriolic vendetta when people quote him.

Bit of a conundrum for him if someone higher up is sniffing around him. He’s not our player and this move to vale is for him to get him experience and to put himself in the shop window.

Agreed. Joyce and Legge have been vital in the spine of the side. Whilst smith and Gibbo are proving to be consistent players at this level.

According to Radio Stoke it looks like Taylor’s loan may/will be extended by Forest. Makes sense from Forrests point of view. I assume they must also be talking to him about a contract if that’s the case

He's only played 20 odd league games, so he clearly lacks experience, but he's also scored a few goals, which we've lacked in a midfielder for YEARS (I think Sage mentions it annually around May/June) and should grow with a full season under his belt.

He's definitely worth it - he's a good age, with decent potential and it he continues to develop, a prospect to contribute now, and potentially sell in the future if the chance arises - plus it's quite exciting to hear of us looking to invest too!

That said, we shouldn't get too excited and overcommit - we're still developing under Askey, and we're not at the stage where it would get us over the line for promotion for example.

Such is life. In the cold light of day, it was always a long shot Forest effectively releasing a bloke with 7 goals in his first half season of pro football for a pittance. It does prove these players are still out there though.

Second bid rejected but hopeful of a loan deal... blow though is he is injured for the rest of the month!

If loan doesn’t go through we have seen last of him for this season then

No pressure on Forest, they can wait and see how the season pans out and the interest in him from elsewhere as well, as can Jake. Vale use his talents if the loan is extended, better to develop our own but clubs at most levels use the system. They have the use of players they could not afford or wish to assess..

Seems to me NFFC is playing 'mind games' to tease more money out of us.

They say they will be offering another contract to Jake in the summer. Why not now?

I think it's 'goodbye and thank you Jake' - not that I know owt about such dealings.

I agree, I would say thanks, you have done great and move on. It will be Forest's fault when he moves on somewhere else and fails as have many before him. I wouldn't extend the loan if he is not here long term, we can never build a team on loan players so best to cut our losses and move on.
