Well, that’s one way to prove the doubters wrong.
In his recent column for Nottinghamshire Live, former Nottingham Forest man Kenny Burns stated how he wasn’t 100% sure if Matty Cash was the best solution for Nottingham Forest at right-back.
Hopefully he’s not a big presence on social media, otherwise, he’d be feeling rather sheepish right about now, as Cash was once again named in the WhoScored.com Team of the Week.
As Nottingham Forest themselves pointed out this isn’t the first time that Cash has received this kind of award.
Reacting, there were some Forest fans who took the moment for what it was, Cash being given yet more recognition for his efforts, but there were a couple who turned it into a chance to call out Burns for his views on the right-back.

Like many I was sceptical of him at right back. But my God he has made that position his own now. Brilliant this season.

Yet Burns 🍷🍷🍷 doesn’t know how long the manager is going to ‘persist’ in playing him and he ‘worries’ him 😂😂😂
Our best player this season and looks like he was born to play right back

Fair to say they didn’t pull any punches when it came to the former Red.
You wonder how many more times it’s going to take for Burns to realise that he might not be 100% correct on this one.
