Flying on his Insta story in gym and running, not sure if he’s still in Spain but with Winnall making a welcome surprise return yesterday, is it a possibility FF might do the same?

Hopefully, but not too soon. We're ticking on nicely at the mo. Need him at 110%. Don't rush it just for the sake of.

Hopefully might be back for the Hull game. 

 

Would be nice to keep him fit for the remainder of the season.

Aye hopefully similar treatment as Winall, keep. Things quiet and shoehorn him back him into the team eventually

It's all that running from the law he's been doing, fit as a fiddle :ph34r:

 

Maybe get some of the other players under threat of arrest in pre-season, starting with Abdi lol

Once Bruce is in charge what is the chance get a fine and points deduction for playing him whilst banned?

FF is my fave player and would love to see him being our talisman again but I would be surprised if a Cardiff or an Udders don’t come in for him - even Rafa - a Prem team that needs someone a bit different or else they are going down.

Quite fitting Winnall and Forestieri are sat together on the team photo because until they're 110% ready and deserving. They can sit together on the bench aswell.

lol

Wouldn’t surprise me if there was interest but don’t see teams willing to part with much for a player that has hardly featured in recent months. 

 

Realistically, can’t see anyone offering more than £5M-£6M. At that level I would rather keep hold of him. Be better to try and sell Reach who we could probably get twice as much for in the current market.

Yeah he will go for the same price as Madine.... some of our fans have a real downer on FF

How much would you think a club would pay for a player who has been injured more than not  in the past year and a half, and who has an upcoming court appearance?

If Bruce comes in he won’t be going anywhere. Bruce rates him. Fingers crossed because he just needs properly managing and a new 5 foot cotton wool coat! We could still see the best of this special talent yet....

Fernando Forestieri: 29 years old in a couple of weeks, 12 league starts in the last 16 months, 8 league goals.

Gary Madine: 26 years old at time of transfer, 64 league starts in the 16 months prior to transfer, 19 league goals.

 

12 league starts in a season and a half worth of football... and currently out of the first team picture again... dya honestly think a club would be willing to spend big bucks on a player that's started the same number of games as Sam Hutchinson over the last year and a half?

I certainly do not have a downer on FF. I adore him at his majestic best. Unfortunately, this has not been seen this season. Look at facts.

How may playing minutes has FF had compared to other players. This may be because of injury, suspension, or simply not being chosen.BUT ffor every minute of playing time ANY player is missing from te field, his value to us is ZERO. It may seem a bit harsh, but any player, be he a star or a numpty, if not on the actual field of play is of no use to us.

This , to me, means that, if it comes to selling a top player, if the choice is between Reach and FF, then i'm afraid FF has to go. At present, Reach is a far more valuable player, to be kept even at the expense of FF.

Exactly. 

 

Had FF played regularly and been banging goals in, we could realistically expect much, much more. 

 

For what teams are currently willing to offer, it’s debatable whether we would be better holding on to him in the hope performances and appearances improve. 

 

If we can afford to keep hold of him, I would do so and see how he does until the end of the season.

FF has shown when he plays he is far superior to Madine

 

His quality still shows and would still command a big price still
