For me once again the manager hugely responsible for this result in his team selection, Silva and carvallho together against a physical strong championship team, I said pre season if we played them together championship teams would run straight through us, and that's what happened 1st half, Silva neat and tidy nothing more, carvallho for me, a little boy lost, cash scored a great goal, but he owed us that for pulling out of a tackle, to hand them possession for their 2nd, all very familiar, we lose Dawson and start shipping goals and losing games, very disappointing,

Yes this happened last season when Dawson was injured thank good ness we have Samba. If we don’t move higher in the table ie top 4 it will be harder to attract a good striker in January if that’s what we need. Psychology is important . Watson was slated last season now or at least was a hero - what changed! Carvalho is bereft of confidence? Perhaps a time in the reserves would help? Lolley is not playing like he can either. So the manager does not drop them after one gain as that would psychologically be bad . Vis a vis Bostock who had a great game in the cup against Derby but then apparently a bad game against Wigan. I think I would have chosen him last night rather than Carvalho. However Yates I think played well. Dilemmas for SL but a win against Reading is important to move up the league but psychologically a priority for the players.


2.) 24 Oct 2019 10:07:25
So frustrating that if we had won last night and sunday we would have been 2 points clear at the top. If we want to play with the big boys we have got to control games. Too many times this season we've been on the back foot the whole match and nicked a point or a win. If our luck has run out we need to grow some balls and start taking games to teams.


3.) 24 Oct 2019 21:51:04
Lamouchi has got it right for the most part with his team selection and the use of subs, think he got it wrong at Wigan and I'd assume he knows that, last night my only concern was seeing Silva and carvalho in the team together as my opinion has always been that they can't play together and it leaves Watson exposed and having to do the job of sow aswell and his legs won't take that, Yates has to come in to give us the legs we need in midfield while sow is out, but to be fair to Lamouchi Yates has been out for a few months and maybe he wants to bring him along slowly to avoid further injury although we have a huge squad some players aren't allowed to be picked so Lamouchi put put a more attacking side out on paper and if your honest what side can any of put out from the squad at the moment that will improve us?
Samba, grabban, cash, Watson and worrall are fixtures and pick themselves and we know although not playing well lolley will play the rest is a lottery until sow semedo and dawson are fit again even jenkinson gives us another option of playing cash on the wing, all a bit unfortunate with the injuries.

See we've loaned gomis to that lot across the river said it's forest' holding out an olive branch ' I wouldn't give them anything, any apologising should be or 'olive branches' should be held out by that plank hardy for shooting off his big mouth and insulting forest in the 1st place, I firmly hope they go down, their fans have no respect for us anyway.

Stevie f

1.) 30 Jan 2019 21:26:33
Yes Stevie but we are showing we have class by holding out an olive branch,bit different to holding your todger?😁


2.) 30 Jan 2019 22:13:15
I don't know about an olive branch,but I think there's a lot of stick coming Hardys way.


3.) 30 Jan 2019 22:17:02
Did someone mention maggots?


4.) 30 Jan 2019 22:56:42
Hardy needs to go back to school and realise that maggots turn into flies,instead of trying to get a maggot out of his flies.🙄🙄


5.) 30 Jan 2019 23:09:41
We the season of goodwill has certainly ended on this forum?
Come On You Pies!🤣🐬


6.) 30 Jan 2019 23:43:52

First of all millwall were well worth their point our keeper had an absolute stinker, and very few come out with any credit nobody else said anything but I thought hef had a shocker, the manager went all defensive despite the fact we were 2up i'm going to say no more about carvallhio nice free kick but spent most of the night giving the ball away, grabban was a total passenger lolly the only real bright spark thought we might improve but looks like I could be wrong poor night all in.

Stevie f

1.) 04 Oct 2018 01:27:48
I wish the boss would start with Dawson and Murphy against physical sides. It looks obvious to me but not to the boss for some reason.

I can't help feeling like the people on here who reckon this system doesn't suit Grabban were right. He has still only scored a couple of goals in the league apart from penalties. Surely the boss can work out how to get more out of him?

Finally, for a defensive approach we are conceding too many STILL!

This team has promise but it feels like something is still missing. With these players how can we be on the back foot against Millwall?


2.) 04 Oct 2018 09:23:38
Grabban is a goalpoacher,nothing else to his game,great when you play two up,but looks lost alone.
The defence looked poor all night and got a let off early when they hit the bar,doesn't help when they know the goalie will stay rooted to his line all the time and not take charge of high balls.
Heff had a very poor game getting beat numerous times in the air and we still don't look like scoring from corners.
We didn't deserve all three points,but after calvahalo goal that should have been it,don't think karanka covered himself in glory with the final two subs,sitting back and defending was asking for trouble with our fragile defence and dodgy goalie


3.) 04 Oct 2018 10:52:39
Ff79 they also had a good goal disallowed. Pants is a liability. Flat footed, never comes for crosses and inspires no confidence in those around him. As for his distribution??? Captain calamity. Simply a baffoon.
This was a game for Murphy with A another playing tight off him. Grabban offers nothing in this one up role. Dias and Carv are like boys playing for their school. Wonder about with no idea how to move to shape things and are woeful in posession. Why the defence was so poor lastnight? Msybe we were too deep and invited pressure from all angles. Every cross they put in equalled panic stations. can't remember their keeper having anything to deal with. AK needs to stop showing blind loyalty to certain players, assess the opposition and adapt. If thst means more physicality than Fox then it needs doing. Geddy is back to his inconsitent best too. Lastnight was such a disappointment. Not the result the manner in which we went about it. Totally outgunnsd by a poor Millwall side. Step up AK


4.) 04 Oct 2018 11:26:55
Ff I thought heff should have closed down quicker for Blackburn’s 2nd on Saturday too


5.) 04 Oct 2018 11:27:24
To be fair Rutland other than 70 mins in the WBA game we've played badly all season at home in championship,been very lucky at times,that luck will run out I'm afraid.


6.) 04 Oct 2018 20:44:47
Absolutely ff. 70 mins against WBA is it as far as the league is concerned.
The football under Karanka is boring as hell and although the style is defensive the defence is awful. We still concede far too many.
Hefele is slower than a cart horse and Fox never wins a header from a cross.

We have scraped last min draws at Wigan Blackburn and at home to Brum so last night was “own medicine”, reality is we deserved to lose last night.


7.) 04 Oct 2018 21:07:23
Got to agree north Notts can't see us getting enough wins to be up there,we seem to keep grabbing a couple of goals from nowhere somehow,never create many clear cut chances then make individual errors at the back,to me we played with 8 men last night,grabban and calvahalo were non existent and we didn't have a goalkeeper.
You can't carry three players and get away with it.
Most hilarious comment I heard last night was in the car on the way home,Steve Hodge on the radio blaming the fans for shouting at pants to throw it quickly,took his time as usual and then panicked 🤣🤣🤣🤣


 

 

28 Aug 2018 22:39:59
Think it's really disappointing how all the optimism and feel good factor around the club seems to be rapidly evaporating, have been on the fence with regard to AK, but there doesn't seem to be any clear plan with team selection, etc we've had a huge turnover of players since he came in, but the same old failings are still apparent, the slow starts the concession of early goals, the aerial weakness in our own box, we seem stuck with the same rigid tactics, and all the chopping and changing of personnel, which is reminiscent of the montanier reign, yes it's early, but to me the signs are not positive, is there anyone that can sort this club out? We seem jinxed,

Stevie f

1.) 29 Aug 2018 08:38:24
Agreed stevie are we any further forward then last year have we made progress ?i don't think so apart from 21000 season cards that is tonight will be the test against newcastle to see how far if any we have become


2.) 29 Aug 2018 09:36:12
The only difference is we haven’t lost any games. Might not have played well but it’s there in black and white. I seem to remember under Billy Davies time we had a couple of seasons when we failed to win in our first few games but made the play offs. The West Brom game highlights what the potential is, we’ve just got to work harder


3.) 29 Aug 2018 12:10:30
Most of the changes have been injuries or to bring in on-form players like Cash/Soudani. The exception was in the cup to give game time and when we brought in the new full backs (which most of the fans were calling for).


4.) 29 Aug 2018 13:30:38
What’s what the fans are calling for got to do with anything? Karanka is solely responsible for what’s turned out on match days not the paying customers, Osborn, Murphy lolley cash carvallhio Dias have all been ‘rotated ‘in a league season that’s only 5 games old little wonder that the ‘gelling ‘ is taking a little longer than hoped and if any of the optimists out there have seen any progression so far i’d really like to borrow your rose tinted glasses


5.) 29 Aug 2018 13:59:25
Can't argue with that Stevie,but for saying it you have officially become a foremoaner.


6.) 29 Aug 2018 14:25:26
They haven't been rotated. Murphy is second choice striker and Grabban is injured. Carvalho was off form and dropped. Soudani, Lolley and Cash were on form (all came on and scored) so they replaced players who were off form. If the manager didn't reward on form players the squad would be demoralised.

Some people just love a good moan. If anything is the managers fault it is that the work on the training ground is clearly not getting the players to perform.


7.) 29 Aug 2018 14:47:54
The last part of your post is the worrying bit as that's the job he's paid to do,if he can't translate trainng practice to a match then he's not getting across to the players what he wants,that's poor management


8.) 29 Aug 2018 14:58:06
1st of all you don know whether I like a good Moan or not what you’re telling me is players weren’t ‘rotated they were replaced or dropped what’s the difference?you sound like the politician who doesn’t want another referendum but a’people’s vote instead! and in the end everything is the managers responsibility whether we or he likes it or not

14 Aug 2018 22:18:53
Can someone remind me are benfica wanting 20 mill for goncalves at the end of his loan?

Stevie f

1.) 14 Aug 2018 23:53:25
none of the Portuguese lads have done anything yet to suggest they are worth millions, people keep suggesting that its the same as wolves but its not they signed neves who was captain of porto at 18, I hadn't heard of Carvalho or goncalves before, but there's still time just hope they come good, more frustrated in dias as I thought he'd start well.


2.) 15 Aug 2018 08:46:49
Sincerely hope the 3 Portuguese don’t turn out like the 3 Italians platt bought in, cost the club a fortune and disappeared without trace


3.) 15 Aug 2018 13:33:40
Can't believe how negative some people are here. Have you actually watched us play? Firstly,the Goncalves deal is £15m structured over 3 years if we want him permanently. He has looked off the pace but give him a chance! Took a while for even Ronaldo to settle but he turned out alright!
As for the other two, they were great against WBA, especially Dias. Their touch and work-rate were excellent and clearly they have quality we've been lacking. Just because they haven't scored yet no need to get on their backs after a couple of games!


4.) 15 Aug 2018 13:41:23
I’m with nick on that one. Just because they don’t score or assist doesn’t mean they’re not good players. All of the Portuguese lads have very good work rates and you need that in this league so give them one to find their feet a bit more and the goals will come.
But until then at least get behind them and not slag them off


5.) 15 Aug 2018 14:29:03
Forest nick yes mate been to every game and will be at wigan Saturday how about you ? And another thing I haven’t actually criticised them just asked about the money.so how about getting down off your ‘loyal fan ‘ high horse?


6.) 15 Aug 2018 22:25:56
Stevie, I heard 20 million mentioned and think we paid 13 million for carvalho. I’m impressed with their work rate to date. Lile I said before let’s wait until we get to the cold days / nights before we either rejoice or lament.


7.) 15 Aug 2018 23:31:10
yes of course there's time and i'm sure all forest fans will give them the time, my point was I thought dias would hit the ground running as he did have a very good pre season but 60 mins against wba is not a great start, i see positives in this forest team and 1 is a battling never say die attitude that we didn't have last year.

Makes me laugh on here people talking about us signing 'cast offs' or 30 year olds, then others. Quoting clough, their memories must be playing tricks on them, or they weren't there, clough signed Peter withe, (multiple clubs) Colin Barrett not wanted at man c) , Larry Lloyd, (unwanted, considered trouble maker at cov) Kenny burns considered lunatic, ) frank Clarke, considered finished) terry Curran ( from 3rd div Doncaster) Sean haselgrave ( unwanted at stoke, ) john o'hare and McGovern ( unwanted at Leeds) so ' 'cast offs'can work,

Stevie f

1.) 15 Sep 2020 23:35:36
If you have a genius as manager who has picked the players himself . Slightly different situation these days at Forest it would seem. One of our best signings in recent years was McKenna so definitely nothing wrong with signing anyone from anywhere if the person signing them knows what they need to sign .


2.) 15 Sep 2020 23:46:37
All we need now is a genius as dof .
And no pastoral red that's not short for death of football🤔
Times have changed guys and that's why you can't compare the past as the manager signed the players.
This lot are"sourced"by the dof.
We just haven't got the daddy of sources just red ketchup man, its cheap and you can just about get by.


3.) 16 Sep 2020 06:57:47
Steveuef you make me laugh.
How can you compare player's of old to those today?
Wages during the clough years were nowhere near like they are now.
Also players back then wanted to play for their club not like these of today who show no passion and know the 30grand a week wil in their account.


4.) 16 Sep 2020 07:34:56
Fawaz really don’t get the point you’re making, I’m merely pointing out that from largely cast offs a team was built to win the league, what’s wages got to do wth it?


5.) 16 Sep 2020 08:01:39
Great post Stevie, what about Peter Withe scored the winner in the European cup final in 1982 at the age of 31.


6.) 16 Sep 2020 08:29:48
Stevie the difference is cloughie bought cast offs with the right character and were decent footballers. I mention cast offs a lot as they never were any good that we know of and are NOT WANTED by their current clubs.


7.) 16 Sep 2020 08:58:43
Skegbyred I thought clough got rid of withe a year too soon.


8.) 16 Sep 2020 09:05:05
Laymans terms stevie.
The cast offs we have are nowhere near as talented as the ones clough signed.
Different generation and mindset compared to todays players.
Wage wise. the players of yesteryear earned far less than those today and actually wanted to play for their clubs.
Todays players play half heartedly and don't give a care if they play their hearts out or just plod on.
Take bong of hefele. never play but get paid. no doubt not trying to impress during training.
Todays footballers are snowflakes in contrast to yesteryear players.


9.) 16 Sep 2020 11:55:41
Rutland Coventry couldn’t wait to rid of Lloyd he was an expensive pain in the a**** there, o’hare and McGovern must have been the2 biggest outcasts in the history of football, at Leeds once clough had been sacked, Clark was on the verge of retirement, if we’d have been signing these type of players now you lot would have been moaning they were not good enough for them, they’re not good enough for us, I guarantee it,


10.) 16 Sep 2020 11:59:34
Definitely Stevie, Withe was an old fashioned centre forward with a great touch and bought other players into the game and a great understanding with Woodcock, his replacement for a few games was Steve Elliot if I remember right who wasn't anywhere near good enough, but along came Birtles and the rest is history.


11.) 16 Sep 2020 13:09:06
Fawaz love it layman’s terms! I’m obviously struggling to keep up with your superior intellect mate so every little helps as they say, perhaps you could go a step further and and print your posts in capital letters? Gives me more of a chance😂.


12.) 16 Sep 2020 13:39:13
OKAY STEVIE THIS IS JUST FOR YOU.
I HOPE MY COMPREHENSION AND GRAMMAR IS CORRECT AND UP TO YOUR SUPERIOR STANDARDS.
I FIND IT HARD TO ASSIMILATE YOUR PHILOSOPHICAL POSTS AND TRY TO APPROACH THEM IN A MANNER THAT DIFFERS FROM YOU GENIUS DEMEANOUR.
ALSO MAY I ADD THE WAY YOU APPROACH YOUR POSTS IN SUCH A JOURNALISTIC FASHION EXEMPLIFIES POSTS THAT LESSER BEINGS HAVE CREATED.
IN SUMMARY YOU ARE GREAT! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😁🤣🤣.

15.) 16 Sep 2020 14:24:30
Its a shame boys but these are certainly different times, but I would have loved to have seen all of these modern day players coming up against the likes of kenny, Larry, mr psycho most of the Leeds side of old and chopper Harris from Chelsea . Would have loved to see the reaction to that lot chasing the modern players around, they would take a bit of catching, for a start, but they wouldn’t be able to hide all the time, especially in the times when you could put a tackle in . Now look what you’ve done got me reminiscing about proper football again, o well back to the modern stuff.


16.) 16 Sep 2020 15:53:07
Please don,t compareSir Brian with any other of our managers since , his genius was to get things out of players others could hope to do ,many of the squad didn’t like him personally but knew he knew how to use them and respected him for that and put everything in nearly every game ,so other manager of the time got near this.
CARLO


17.) 16 Sep 2020 16:17:59
That is right, Martin O'Neil once said, would i ever had a drink in a pub with Clough, no but on the pitch i would run through a brick wall for him.


18.) 16 Sep 2020 17:28:23
Carlo wasn’t comparing managers, but so called cast off players he forged into a team.

15 Sep 2020 07:20:49
I know Saturday wasn't a great start, but looking at this board, it just seems a ridiculous overreaction, I was as disappointed as anyone about the end of last season, some of the posts are way over the top, I have never been totally convinced with the manager, but I believe in that huge squad there is a very competitive eleven, the owner must realize the squad is too big, after all he is the one footing the bill, I look with interest to Saturday now, to see what reaction we get,

Stevie f

1.) 15 Sep 2020 07:30:57
Ok. Lamouchi doesn't even know his best 11?
Take the wolves manager. he only has a small squad yet he manages to find synergy and cohesion with his team.
The squad is bloated just like the huge wage bill.
Over the top posts. i disagree. if you are happy with the current form then you must be watching another team.
You keep on believing we will be in contention for a top 6 finish. 🤣🤣🤣🤣.


2.) 15 Sep 2020 07:47:29
Stevie the sale of Cash and probably Worrall 2 of our best young players who would be in the first 11 ( apparently the reds have put a 12 million price tag on Joe) will fund the ridiculous wages we pay to players who won't even get in the squad, Marinkas is not stupid and will keep his hands out of his own pockets.


3.) 15 Sep 2020 08:12:46
The problem is Saturday was not the start of this decline, in reality it stretches back to December 19. 5 wins 8 draws 8 defeats in the last 21 games . Add the post lock down ward spiral and you have a dispirited team and manager. To throw half and dozen plus new players in to the mix, sell maybe one or two of your best and you have a motivation problem. Probably almost any Combination of 11 players of the 30 plus in the huge squad will play better as a team if inspired . This comes from SL but I don’t think he has got the skills to motivate players. So come Saturday the players have his fate in their hands. How many times have we said that recently and what has been the result.


4.) 15 Sep 2020 08:19:09
Ridiculous overreaction? Honestly? Have you watched any of last seasons matches live and where have you been for the last 20 or so games? The football is atrocious, it’s just defend defend defend- and not particularly well either. The manager hasn’t got an attacking bone in his body, it’s all about remaining compact and hard to break down. That’s fine at places like Watford, but in my eyes completely unacceptable against teams like Barnsley at home. No disrespect to Barnsley, but compare their squad to ours. The DOF and coach should quit immediately come Saturday evening if there is no dramatic turnaround in performance, passion and attacking intent.
The clubs a joke.


5.) 15 Sep 2020 09:07:01
Redfrog. 👍.


6.) 15 Sep 2020 09:19:54
Stevief i normally agree eith your thoughts but not completely on this one. The academy and its bright prospects, in my opinion are funding wages of the current recruitment. No fees are changing hands for players brought in so wages are just like an HP agreement. On the surface, as no info is fourthcoming from the club, the money is not being used wisely. Any other owner would be accused of asset stripping. As for the squad containg a core of competitive players for this league? I for one am not impressed. We have few CONSISTENT performers and little drive from dynamique midfielders. Matty Cash was that driver.


7.) 15 Sep 2020 09:28:36
I like football played a certain way and want to leave the City Ground with a smile because Forest have played well and won, if the players do not manage to win then at least they played well enough to make it a entertaining game.

I do not like the overly defensive set up our players leader uses and want him to give the teams attacking players more freedom to get forward and express themselves.

I have no control over how the team plays but the way they play now is something i will accept with a heavy heart if the team is doing well, but when the team have a long period of drawing and losing with only the odd win i will not gloss over it.

The players leader should have been asked by the owner at the terms end are you willing to make the team more attacking, then told, if not go now.


8.) 15 Sep 2020 09:35:28
Great post Stevie 👍🏻.


9.) 15 Sep 2020 09:53:26
Red frog of course I have watched the games live up until lockdown, I have a season card like most on here, and have followed like everyone else since, I am not saying I enjoy the sit back style of lamouchi, , and since lock down it’s probably got more negative because of lack of crowd pressure to get forward, particularly at home, but Saturday seems to have been the catalyst for many on here to predict meltdown, all I am saying is 1 game has been played so far, the problem lamouchi has got is people will accept having the ball 30% of the game only big you keep winning, people seemed happy with things when we beat Huddersfield and Bristol city, but if you look at both those games the opposition had the majority of the ball, all I am saying is let the new players find their feet, and if you still feel the same in 6 games time fair enough,


10.) 15 Sep 2020 10:11:31
Rutland, those players we produced generally got dogs abuse on here, brereton lacelles, cash Osborn, Worrall have all been slaughtered in here from time to time, some most of the time, now all of a sudden everyone is lamenting their departuresor imminant departure, clubs in the position we’re in will always lose their best players, to the prem it’s the way it is, all I am saying is give it a few more games before the season is totally written off by everyone, GET FORWARD, we all like football played in a certain ‘ forest way’ , but let’s be honest only Carey and clough ( in my time) have managed to combine winning football with exciting football, have you forgotten gillies, brown, megson etc ( the list is too long) so let’s not get too hung up on the ‘ forest way ‘ mate, it’s seldom been like that,


11.) 15 Sep 2020 10:32:21
I do not believe there is a Forest Way, it is a myth.

I do not believe the overly defensive football served up is the only way to play to get success.

Bournemouth, Norwich, Fulham, Leeds have all got up playing good football, five of the top six last term were teams that tried to play good football so it is just the case of having a will to try and play that way.


12.) 15 Sep 2020 11:00:35
Stevie i agree about the contradiction on the young plsyers but my point is, and i have made it several times, is that the academy is the only profit making area from the playing dept and the club seem desperate to exchange these lads for money at the earliest opportunity, quite ruthlessly in most cases.

Worrall was only recently loaned to rangers now he has had one season he has a value and that will be cash converted very soon. I firmly believe that cash and worrall might just get better in a new environment under better coaches. Worrall like lascelles has the attributes and potential to go on and be great.

I have only seen forest away from home in the recent years and watched cash make sub appearances under warburton. Preston for example where brereton scored for us. Though young, cash had drive in him and took the ball deep into the opposition half with purpose.

We need that this season more than ever and not the money. We have no one with these attributes lolley tries but lacks the pace and only has the one trick, cutting in. Hope you get my point stevie.


13.) 15 Sep 2020 12:04:18
Stevie harry had us playing the most exciting football as well and paul hart, both stabbed in the back when we were getting somewhere.
Dont forget frank clark either so we have had some good managers playing attractive football.

Rutland of course I understand your point, but could we really deny cash his move to the prem and his hike in wages? and plenty on here we’re offering Benny a lift when sheff u came in for him, Burke now looks like good business ( pity fawaz pocketed the cash, ) loads on here couldn’t wait to get rid of brereton for the money, I still believe he will come back to haunt us, I get your basic point and it remains to be seen whether the money has been invested wisely, but it needs more time than some on here are prepared to give before we know, as for the coach, I thought he was the wrong appointment from day one,


15.) 15 Sep 2020 12:36:31
The problem was an is, we were a shoe in for the top 6 last year an we just collapsed ridiculously and the coach and the players should of been held accountable for it, if we had made playoffs an lost the football club would be in a better mood etc with fans but there was no apology on the website an a statement of we will use this to come back stronger just silence for 6 weeks an now we start the season like we did last an it still stinks on the banks of the Trent so I’m sorry but coach needs to go but that’s my opinion, if he stays an miraculously turns it round I will be as happy as the next red dog but can’t see it 😩.

Ff79 harry was in the happy position of having quality players. head and shoulders above most other teams in the league, van hoojidonk stone Campbell, beasant Thomas, Johnson, etc, not a luxury we have at the moment mate,

I'm afraid this is following an oh so familiar inevitable pattern, he will be gone before a half dozen games of the new season have been played, His lack of adaptability will be his downfall, I believe had crowds be allowed in back end of last season he would be gone already, and it would probably have been the right thing to do,

I have to agree Stevie: it's not the players' faults he can't get his tactics or selections right, nor understand what to do during the actual game - there seems to be a lack of communication between him and the lads at times.
If we lose more games now I can't see why the owner would want him to stay - that ought to have been made clear in Greece, but even then I'm not optimistic about who Mr. M will choose next!


2.) 12 Sep 2020 20:19:26
Absolutely agree Stevie. After all people pay to have some form of entertainment- but what’s on offer now is turgid dross. Whilst we were winning a few people went along with it, but now it just seems like Lamouchi is stuck in his ways with no attempt at change- probably because he can’t. A lovely guy, limited technical managerial ability. Very sad.

Note your diary Stevie for the 24th October. A home defeat to the Sh*g***s could be au revoir!


4.) 12 Sep 2020 20:31:55
His problem is to get the best out of the way he likes to play you need pace in the team, none of the players he has been saddled with have it and for that you have to sympathise with, him,


5.) 12 Sep 2020 20:46:51
Stevie your not reading the script, doesn't matter if he goes the football will be the same under any coaches we bring in.
Its a blueprint of how we are being told to play by a baffoon of a dof.
Poir signings yet again and at sixty three i would back myself to beat most of them in a sprint.


6.) 12 Sep 2020 20:50:32
That's a valid observation, although he has also been the master of his own downfall thanks to some questionable team selections and an almost perverse and stubborn loyalty to some players e. g. Diakhaby.


7.) 12 Sep 2020 22:49:35
He’s got pace in Mighten an Ameobi but didn’t choose to play them today, all he was interested in today was a s**t 0-0 maybe break winner but he doesn’t learn that ain’t the way to play here in England.


 

 

12 Sep 2020 18:15:11
Ameobi must have been shocked not to be in the team, he must have upset sl big time not to get selected in front of the utter waste of a shirt da costa, don't know what this bloke does for a day job, because footballer he ain't.

He’s got a few coffee shops, in my opinion Starbuck was a better footballer and makes better coffee - just my opinion .


2.) 12 Sep 2020 22:25:33
Ameobi and Ribeiro must wonder what they have done wrong.
Yates and de costa were absolutely crap like playing with 9 men. Grab an needs benching and shooting practice.

See benny scored against the sheep again today! lol.

Who cares about benny he weren't the best and plays for Sheffield United.
Good luck to him but not bothered what he's doing.


2.) 02 Sep 2020 08:45:31
Just a light hearted anti derby post mate, lighten up.


3.) 02 Sep 2020 09:25:35
It's amazing, take a funny post and turn it into something negative 79, why bother fella?

I remember the cracking winner he got against the sheep at the their place Steve, where he ran down the wing and blasted it in. Extra time winner, hit it past Keogh too, great times.

Well said Ginger!


5.) 02 Sep 2020 14:12:10
How’s tricks Ginger? What me your thoughts on the cash sale mate? Your views are mostly well thought out and rational, I can’t recall seeing any thoughts from you on the matter?

Don’t think this signing was expected to be exciting, and as I said on here before I’m not, but give the bloke a chance, he may have played for Morton, but he’s also had champions league experience on the flip side.

Barkingmadjack from the couple of times I’ve seen him, he wasn’t lightweight, he just wasn’t very good on either occasion,

I understand that mate just saying if all the punters of a bank turned up and wanted their money back at the same time the bank would go bust, even though theoretically they should have the money, forest are obviously expecting a big take up of refunds,

Rutland like I said further down the board, the claim he is the best man for the job sounded like a desperate plea, rather than. a confident statement,

Fff79 I suppose if the majority of season ticket holders ask for a refund they have got to manage the cash flow, it’s like having a run on a bank, or a similar effect. At least you know you will be getting back sooner or later,
