Adrian Forbes: Yes Or No?

Adrian Forbes: Yes Or No?
The right midfielder has been an almost permanent fixture in the starting eleven this season, but he's been the main topic of discussion after many games with the ongoing debate whether he`s good enough or not?

Yes: 45%
No: 55%


After a very tight vote (with the no vote only slightly pulling away in the last few days) it shows the fans are still split in half as to whether he warrants the right hand side berth on a regular basis.

The former Luton man was signed by Simon Grayson in pre season from Swansea City on a free transfer and he came to the seaside with a bubbly personality and a lively ethic on how to play football.

Previously a Norwich City trainee, 'Forbesy` has played a part in 34 matches so far this term, scoring just the one goal, which game against Bournemouth the other week in a 2-0 win.

Adrian will be the first to admit that he hasn't hit his peak yet, and hasn't been anywhere near consistent. But we were warned this last summer, in a one off article with the Vital Swansea City editor. Click here for the article.

I'm not a massive Forbes fan in all honesty, never have been since I first saw him train at Squires Gate back in July; but what he doesn't have in quality, he makes up for with determination and that should be recognised.

In my opinion we now have a better player in Chris Brandon and let's not forget Simon Gillett who is effective on the right. Forbes has been prone to scoring some crucial goals in the past for Luton and Swansea, maybe he can be used as a striker?

This week we ask 'Do 'Pool Miss John Murphy Up Front?'
