Nottingham Forest take on Luton Town this weekend in the Sky Bet Championship as they look to get themselves another big three points in the race for promotion into the Premier League at the end of the season.
The Reds are nicely placed in the Sky Bet Championship table at the moment with them in the play-off places and in possession of a game in hand compared to those around them.
With the gap to West Brom and Leeds shrinking in recent weeks, too, there’s growing hope at the City Ground that the Reds might well be able to reel in the top two.
Away from that, though, there’s also a growing debate over the future of Joao Carvalho with him proving a player that is continuing to divide opinion amongst the fan base.
Let’s take a look at what has been said about him of late after Paul Taylor assessed his future:
The dilemma facing #nffc this January that has nothing to do with signing a striker…

We’ve waited years for a creative player and now we’ve got one, half our fan base want him sold! The team should be built around him, change formation (at home) and play him behind Grabban and let him create. The performances will improve as a result.

Agree we haven’t seen the best of him this season but mainly been played out of position. He’s not a winger.

Keep him, no brainer. Quality young player that clearly needs an arm around his shoulder. Forget the 13m, that’s par for the course nowadays for a half decent player. JC is better than half decent.

I'd stick. The glimpses he's shown in some games has been short of outstanding ability….
Need to find his best position…(middle of the park just behind Grabbs for me) and unleash hell! The sad thing is, time could be running out? #NFFC

Whose idea was it to play 13million for a player who made 7 appearances in benfica 1st team and 15 on loan at vittoria. Unbelievable

How is this a dilemma? Seen him play one good game since he’s been with us. Offers nothing with or without the ball. Take whatever we can get.

He’s not going to perform playing the lad on the wing this lad has talent if we played him in his right position
