Nottingham Forest fans have been discussing Matty Cash after his post-match comments were published in the Nottingham Post.
The youngster has expressed his desire to prove people wrong by flourishing in the right-back position.
The Reds are quite short in that position after Tendayi Darikwa’s injury, and in the opening match Cash had to fill in.
“It is a position I would like to pin down and make my own,” said Cash.
“I hear loads of people say ‘he is not a right-back’. I just want to prove people wrong.”
Despite calling out the doubters that didn’t stop some supporters from repeating the exact idea that he wants to dispel.
Cash is a midfielder by trade, and fans don’t believe he is capable of competently playing as a full-back.
Not a RB, not now not ever.
You can get away with him in the RWB role against certain opposition when you aren’t going to pegged back but as a bog standard RB…
NO, NO, NO!
We’ve clearly not learnt our lessons from ruining Osborn by playing him as a Full Back.

Nobody is doubting him, hes just not a right back. If a dog is born in a stable, it doesnt make it a horse.???? let’s get round pegs in round holes etc.

A few fans stated that they want to see him play further forward due to his effectiveness in front of goal.
Indeed, he netted six times last term, and he also scored the opener at the City Ground on Saturday.
Square peg round hole great commitment works really hard but defensively for me not a RB would prefer him slightly further forward as he does score goals

I like him in midfield. I don’t want people to dislike Cash because he’s a poor right back.

Playing a midfielder as a full-back isn’t unheard of at Forest as the Reds often utilised Ben Osborn as a left-back last term. Understandably, many have made the comparison between Cash and Osborn.
To be honest it’s Osborn all over again.

He can’t question his work rate or his commitments but just like Osborn he is not a fallback
