I think hell become a good player for us but we need to keep our expectations in check; hes not going to score 20 goals and propel us into the Championship League.

I really can't see what anyone would have against giving him a go next season . Given just how little creativity and scoring threat we carry as a team .He did really well in pre season and probably would have had a chance to play had we not filled out the squad with mediocre crap who barely featured and contributed little .

The thing is, with our abundance of No.10s, who would he replace ?...Rooney is the obvious one if we are talking next season as he's not going to get any better, however I would like to think we are looking to be signing a playmaker in the summer, if so Dowell's chances will be limited to cup games I imagine if any.

There are players who next season are a year older or a year more frustrating in Rooney and Bolasie .  I also think you could definitely take the following out of the club for various reasons and it would effect nothing on it McCarthy ( injury ), Schneiderlin ( sell ) , Besic ( useless ) Klassen ( sell ) , Lookman ( Loan unfortunately) , Sandro ( sell ) . There are a couple with question marks over them who if he remains in charge Allardyce may move on in Davies ( I would fume ) and Vlasic ( seems unfancied ) . I just think that next season there is definitely a place for Dowell and if it is Cups and substitute appearances then that is better than any more squad fillers at stupid VFM . Kenny has probably saved us about 30-40 M not having to buy a replacement for Seamus and Dowell could well do the same replacing any of the above in certain games .

That's a fair comment, However I think a lot hinges on who is manager next season as you say

Needs another season on loan judging by what a lot of Forest fans think. Wouldn't be averse to that, when you see how Davies rose and then fell back down to earth until he finds his level. It's a huge step up from U-23 football and only a tiny % manage it without some sort grounding at a level which bridges that gap first.

With Forrest not in with a realistic chance of being promoted, I quite like the idea of giving him a contract extension and loaning him out to a team fighting a bit higher up the ladder. Maybe even a prem team.
Then make the decision on what to do in 2019.

Depends on who the manager is next season as to if he'll get a chance with us

According to whoever put the stat together it is. He was a teenager when the season started, maybe that's how they 'bracket' it?
