There is a good player in there, when not crocked...
Don't think he will ever be a 1st team starter, but if fit, is excellent back up, so retain....

7/10 when playing

Squad player.

I feel like it has been so long since I’ve seen him play that it’s difficult to give a rating. I’ll give a default 5/10

Definitely a good player in there but it’s really difficult to come back from a long term injury especially the older you get and added to that the step up to the Prem.

A squad player but will be lucky to get many games especially if we make any more midfield signings

Difficult to score him but 5/10

Has been unlucky as he seemed to be just getting into his stride before the injury struck but has never quite fulfilled expectations imo. Couldn’t justify keeping him on as he does seem to very injury prone and may not even be the same player as he was after such a bad injury. I can’t see him being a Premier League standard player so sadly time to move on. 5/10

Sell if we get a decent offer.

Adam is a good box to box midfielder, but when he gets to the oppositions box there hasnt been much end product despite getting into so great positions.

Too much time out injured


Did probably have his best period of games for us just before his latest injury 6/10

Yet another midfielder short on goals in fact Forshaw hasn't scored a goal in five seasons :shock:

We signed him when he was injured, he's remained a crock for the best part of his career at Leeds, only a matter of time before Adam breaks down again

Do we sell him?....who would spend good money on him is the problem?

Bench at best or shall we say the bench in the treatment room :(

5/10.....generous again!

I feel bad for this because we've seen a good, capable midfielder in there but I think we can do better. It's not just the injury, I think he will be superseded by the likes of Shackleton soon anyway, so thanks for the good effort Adam but it's time to move on. And I don't relish saying that about any of our team at the moment.

6/10

Time to move on, too injury prone, I’d rather see one of the U23s developed. He won’t dislodge Klich or Phillips. When he is on his game he’s a very useful player but he spends too long injured or recovering from injury.

Move on 6/10

But he's much better than Kalvin Phillips.

As above, he's so much better than Phillips.

You're kidding :lol:

No way will Forshaw play for England, highly unlikely he'll score another goal at a decent level

Started the season well then got injured, useful player to have and I'd keep until we have a few more mids to play with. I don't believe in injury prone.

Season score 6.5/10

49 appearances in three seasons at Leeds

prior to his Leeds career

92 appearances in his previous five seasons

Suggests Forshaw is injury prone :roll:

Oh & three goals in his last eight seasons is not we require from a midfielder in the premier league

£4.5m wasted plus his salaries for producing virtually nothing!

Felt he was really unlucky last season, was turning in some excellent performances before he got injured. Long way back for him as we really didn't miss him, did we? To be honest, I'd rather see Shacks given more opportunities so sell if we can but retain as decent squad cover if we can't (and that's on the basis that he comes back as the same player, which isn't guaranteed).

5/10 for those early season performances.
