Sammy Ameobi has been an important player for Nottingham Forest in the Championship so far this season, making 26 league appearances.
The 27-year-old was signed by Martin O’Neill this summer, but he’s still been able to play a key role in the Reds’ encouraging start to the season under Sabri Lamouchi.
The winger has been involved in every league game for Forest so far this season – starting on 21 occasions and featuring five times as a substitute – and has scored two goals.
However, it’s fair to say that he’s a player who has divided opinion amongst Forest supporters. Some fans feel that he puts the hard work in on the pitch, while he’s been criticised by other fans at times for some inconsistent performances.
Following the 1-1 draw against Reading at the weekend, a Reds fan in ‘The Original Nottingham Forest Supporters Group’ on Facebook suggested that Ambeio should be dropped from the starting line-up and that Lamouchi should play Albert Adomah or youngster Alex Mighten in his position instead.

Plenty of Forest fans were quick to respond on Facebook and give their thoughts. Here’s a look at some of the best reactions from Reds supporters…
Paul Edwards: “Really inconsistent. Takes too many touches. Seems to get worse every week. Think he’d be a better impact sub.”
Jon Bridge: “Must admit I thought Adomah and Ameobi would be impact players this season. Just feel we are short of a bit of quality further forward that maybe other teams in the top 6 have.”
Martin Smith: “Adomah is just as bad.”
Paul McGee: “I’d play Mighten. He plays without fear. He runs at defenders. No matter how good a defender you are you hate players that run at you.”
Owen Martin: “They both need to run at players. Ameobi & Adomah have decent pace as well. Too much tippie tappie.”
Connor Pringle: “Christ, Mighten has played one match and suddenly he’s the messiah here to answer all our prayers. He’s 17. Ease him in. Remember what happened the last time we put all our hopes in a kid? We ran him into the ground and now he’s a flop at Blackburn. But no, Forest fans refuse to learn from their mistakes.”
Leigh Nash: “Don’t agree, I think he puts in a fair shift, bit headless chicken at times, overall though all good.”
