Just read the notice on the club website re on social media ref the Derby game and thought here we go the politically correct brigade sanitising our wonderful game. But as i read i found it awful that we have to be warned not to sing about childrens deaths and the passing of ND. I love the rivalry in football, banter the funny goading chants. But do our and counties supporters have that level of hate to stoop so low?
I doubt its anyone on here as its generally a greaf place to vent. So come on ALL you fans red or black, let's extend the spirit of xmas, keep it jovial set the standards and represent our great club in the most glorious of lights.
Let Xmas start here.

Hear hear! Everyone should enter the Xmas spirit!
Unfortunately sheep have small heads which is why they follow in flocks and some forests are very dense!

We will either win big or crumble and lose big attacking football as we did against villa will be the only way glad we're playing away and not at home 4-1 the mighty reds 😁

4-1 is my prediction to with another classic away performance? Just ironing the lucky red away trousers!

He's polishing his silver in his castle with all the free money we gave him.😁

He could be polishing his helmet for all I care!

Agree1 1Disagree

13 Dec 2018 13:28:13
Thought he was the best gaffer by far makes karanka look like a amateur 🙄

Yes Aps. I wonder why? It's not just because he's not good at interviews I bet.

Strange he has not had a job since leaving Forest.

Top manager better than what we have now you lot wouldn't know a decent gaffer if he slapped you in the face and 2 tone will back me up on this one 😁

Agree6 5Disagree

13 Dec 2018 19:43:33
I’m with you on that mate . I do however think AK is better than all the rest after and in between BD though

Agree1 1Disagree

13 Dec 2018 21:11:24
Steady skeggy 🤣

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 22:02:53
This Tone will back you on that one aswell Skegsjay. And a Leicestershire Red like yourself. Billy Davies was the best manager we had since Frank Clarke and the UEFA cup run season. Whatever Billy was like off the pitch, his teams performed on it. He got the best out of what he had and knew how to set up a team to win. Forest in his times there were a pleasure to watch.

Enjoyed a lot of the games under prince billy but some shockers too-remember the Blackpool play off at home???

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Dec 2018 14:15:35
Yep 2tone. James Perch gifted them a couple with his awful attempts to pass back to our goalie and was then promptly manhandled by Kelvin Wilson who wasn’t too happy.

Dias no assists no goals but constantly on the pitch ,why ?
CARLO

Agree3 2Disagree

12 Dec 2018 18:16:25
Constantly? Because Cash needs a rest?

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Dec 2018 19:30:01
If we are to give Cash a rest, we would be better to give Appia a run out or maybe try Goncalves because it ain’t working for Dias.

Agree1 1Disagree

13 Dec 2018 00:44:48
because it must be in his contract but I don't know why he's been so bad I thought it would be a real good signing for us.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 07:25:32
He scored against Newcastle in the cup.👍

13 Dec 2018 13:08:39
Unless there's a marked improvement he'll be gone at the end of his loan.Nothing ventured,nothing gained,as they say.

Thought the FA dictated the ticket allocations for FA Cup ties?!
Our allocation of less than 3000 from Chelsea is very poor.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is a percentage of the overall gate that is a minimum they can give, unless there are valid safety reasons not to. According the to FA Cup rules and in particular section 21. (a) the distribution of tickets should be as follows:
"In all matches preceding the Semi-Finals, the Visiting Club shall have the right to claim up to 15% of all accommodation for which tickets are issued providing these tickets are in a fully segregated area."

They can reduce it based on not having a segregated area or advice from the local Safety Advisory Group (which is made up of H&S, local council, emergency services etc). The other factor is that your club might not have requested the full 15%. That happens quite a lot.}

12 Dec 2018 16:11:03
Thanks for clearing that up Ed.
I am not sure of the exact capacity of the Chelsea’s ground nor whether Forest turned down additional tickets but I reckon we took in excess of 4000 fans to an evening Carabo cup game last year so this is strange.

If the capacity is 40000 that would have provided circa 6000 tickets which we would have sold quite easily.

I suspect the local police have curtailed the allocation due to home games in the capital that day.

Sad and strange.

Can anyone tell me how long it's been since us and the sheep have had the same managers in place for more than one "derby" match? I can't get my head around it.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Dec 2018 13:48:55
Think it goes all the way back to Billy Davies and Nigel Clough. Happy to be corrected though.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 00:51:16
well I think if we lose on Monday ours might be out the door, just can't shake the feeling that something isn't right with karanka, and don't get me wrong I don't want him gone or he doesn't deserve to be sacked I just think things are not rosy atm.

Hi, Arran!

13 Dec 2018 18:25:36
Yea cus I love derby can’t get enough of them white shirts, that’s the 1st time ever I’ve been called a derby fan tho and if u actually knew me you’d definitely know I wasn’t, my point was I don't think everything is rosy with our manager atm and losing derby games has cost managers their jobs on both sides hasn’t it before

Agree0 2Disagree

13 Dec 2018 22:56:18
It's impossible to tell if there is anything wrong, he always looks miserable anyway, marinakis needs to get some ouzo down him, that'll cheer him up😀

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Dec 2018 00:10:16
im sure beating the sheep will give us all some festive cheer and i'm happy its away lol

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Dec 2018 10:01:56
If, for any reason, Karanka is sacked after the Derby game, I'll invade the pitch during our next home game wearing a Derby shirt and my a*se painted luminous pink. I'll then jump straight into the Trent never to be seen again. I promise.

Loonies.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Dec 2018 15:46:49
Lol something to look forward to if we get beat an he gets the boot but hopefully your embarrassment will be speared I don’t want him gone I’d just prefer it if he’d start wising up a bit like actually playing a left back at left back even if it’s a youngster an not bringing Dias on with 25 to go when he’s done nothing to deserve playing, anyway here’s to Monday hoping for a good win n performance, hate watching derby games get so nervous.

Oliveira off to Besiktas for 2.5m. Still only 27 years old. What an absolute steal!

Agree2 1Disagree

12 Dec 2018 13:30:15
He did ok for us at a difficult time, and if he could convert more of his chances in front of goal, he could be an amazing player. I'd say £2.5m is pretty accurate of his worth.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Dec 2018 18:18:25
In todays market I'd say its a steal. At Championship level, in a good team he can score goals, and lots of them. Less than half of what we paid for grabban and 6m for him is starting to look like a bargain.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 00:53:13
well he wasn't worth the 5m Norwich paid for him and think he's a disruptive influence in the dressing room.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Dec 2018 17:07:19
It's so exciting. Just 21 more sleeps til we get a new goalkeeper.

Agree6 0Disagree

11 Dec 2018 21:04:48
But who gazza
Butland ?
Heaton?
Forster?
Darlow ?
Westwood?

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Dec 2018 22:09:53
No chance of Butland I think.
I've always liked Heaton.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Dec 2018 22:10:37
All of them till we find who works best lol

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Dec 2018 22:17:14
Bet he doesn't bring a goalie in,no matter what the fans or press say about pants.
Just saying

Agree4 2Disagree

12 Dec 2018 00:13:44
That could cost him is job 79 I know what your saying about being stubborn but now we have dof he might not have a say in the matter which can only be a good thing 😁

Agree3 3Disagree

12 Dec 2018 05:58:39
Krankie will stick with Pants.
I'd be very surprised if he does go for a new keeper.
Like skeg and FF say ak is stubborn.
Pants will cost us even more games if a new keeper isn't brought in.

Agree3 5Disagree

12 Dec 2018 08:34:02
We can all see Pantillimons frailties so don't think that AK is too blinkered to see them too. He'll be very well aware of the issue that is Pants and will look to sort it out in Jan. But for now, he's keeping him in the team for continuity. Forster is the man I'd like to see come in.

Agree4 1Disagree

12 Dec 2018 15:08:23
You are all talking a load of Pants!

AK is not being stubborn in his selection he is being loyal to the players he has brought in which is essential to bonding and building a team.

You were all moaning at the start of the season about his chopping and changing and now bar injury and suspension he has a settled back 6 which is why we are where we are at the top of the league, keeping clean sheets and only 3 defeats.

He is ruthless in replacing players not performing in the squad where he has better options. Steele was signed as back up because Smith is not experienced enough over the season so he currently has no better keeper options!

It’s clear that there will be some much better goalkeepers available in January compared to last summer so expect our ruthless manager to dispense with some of his earlier signings if he can upgrade on them including getting someone with even bigger Pants between the sticks!

Onward & Upward

Agree0 1Disagree

12 Dec 2018 20:03:27
It won't take a lot of doing to upgrade some of his players 😁😁

Agree2 1Disagree

11 Dec 2018 15:42:51
Yaya Toure has had his contract terminated at Olympiacos, we all know what that means.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Dec 2018 18:00:46
He's hanging up his boots in Europe and will have a swan song in China?

Agree3 3Disagree

11 Dec 2018 20:23:13
I suppose it's in his nature to travel being called Toure.
