Nottingham Forest: Fans discuss whether the club should renew Ben Watson’s contract

Nottingham Forest: Fans discuss whether the club should renew Ben Watson’s contract - Nottingham Forest

Sabri Lamouchi has only been at the City Ground for a matter of months but he has made considerable changes to his squad, signing 15 players across two transfer windows as well as letting 16 players leave on a permanent basis.

It is possible the same could happen in the summer as a few players are out of contract, perhaps none more notable than vice-captain Ben Watson. The midfielder has huge experience in the game but he will be 35 by the time next season rolls around, although some fans are confident that he could continue to deliver despite that.

There has been some talk about whether Watson deserves a renewal, and another factor worth considering is the fact Forest also don’t know in which division they will be playing. However, Watson hasn’t missed a league game this campaign and that suggests that he is highly regarded by Lamouchi, and could therefore be kept on regardless.

Some of the debate about the former Wigan player and the possibility of a new contract can be found below, with differing opinions being raised on whether he has performed to a high enough standard to deserve a renewal.

So Forest fans does Watson deserve a new deal? Or is it best to wait and see whether the club will be promoted first? Let us know your thoughts below!
