Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter have been relishing the fact that Ben Osborn hasn’t been given much of a chance at Sheffield United after he swapped the City Ground for Bramall Lane.

This started when a fan asked how Osborn was getting on at his new club.

The Blades have now played two matches in the top flight, but the former Forest man hasn’t featured at all.

He was a solid performer last season as he assisted six goals in 39 appearances while appearing both in midfield and in defence.

The Reds pocketed a nice £5m windfall when they sold the 25-year-old.

Osborn is a product of the Forest academy, and despite making 230 appearances for the East Midlands outfit, a number of supporters were quite happy to see his Blades career faltering.

It remains to be seen whether or not Osborn will have an impact for Chris Wilder’s side this season, but for now, several Forest fans are more than happy to mock their former man for warming the bench.

One supporter had a sarcastic response to the question. Jokingly stating that he thought every manager rated him and that he was going to start every game.

Another fan actually claimed that the Reds are better off without the 25-year-old.

One fan was on the other side of the fence. He didn’t like the bitterness being shown towards the former Forest man, and he claimed that they were better with him in the side by providing a humorous analogy.
