The goal we conceded lastnight was not all down to reberio. As soon as the ball came over i thought keepers ball, but as soon as he remained on his line you feared the worst. The desire thst lad showed with the timing of his run and agression was impressive. We simply don't have a midfielder who is capable of that. As much as kafu krovinivic and garner are excellent at the moment without murray our crosses are easily dealt with. Garner looks more capable than most to create and get on the end of something.
I think a special mention of cafu is worhy as over the last month he has simply got better and better. Alwayscsaid his positional play has been great and he patrols and anticipates things really well. His touch was good and allowed him to move the ball quickly which was of great benefit to the likes of garner and knockaert. Just wish he had a bit more of the viera and keane about him.
Dont want to be too hard on Grabban but his touch is poor and he makes poor decisions and for a 6 footer is awful in the air. Murray brings more composure and threat than the lackadasical Grabban and taylor should get more gametime.
Over all a tremendous performance with some fabulous football on show. What we need, as hughton, always says is to capitalise on the situations where we are on top.

Pretty much spot on as usual Rutter's. Taylor was a poor signing tho, div 1 standard, may as well kept Tyler and Grabban is doing what he did on Sunderland til I die documentary ie couldn't care less wants a move and not interested in the club just a mercenary journeyman. Get rid ๐ŸŽˆ.

It has become very clear for all to see, Lewis does not want to be here, I also think CH dropping him for Murray has further compounded that, last night he was through and last year he would have more than likely shot and buried the ball in the back of the net. Instead he looked to play it and we know what happened. Seems we are all on the Waltzer again going round and round, good end to season, โ€œhopeโ€ given to fans from club to believe there is hope, massive season card sales only I fear to face a repeat of past 20 seasons. BUT I hope I am wrong COYR always keeping the faith that one season it will all go as we all want.

I think that's a pretty good summary of last night's game, Rutland Red.
The goal which we conceded was very unfortunate and you could perhaps point the finger at several players (Christie, Samba, Ribeiro) but it wasn't one of those defensive "howlers" that Forest have a tendency to concede every so often.
In my view, the problem is more at the other end of the pitch. Looking at our three strikers, Murray is a decent short-term option but isn't going to frighten anyone with his pace, Grabban is woefully out of form, doesn't look fully fit or particularly motivated and Taylor hasn't had much game time recently and doesn't seem to be a natural goalscorer, at least at the moment.
During the last transfer window, I seem to recall that a couple of younger lads from League One were mentioned, namely Luke Jephcott at Plymouth and Joe Pigott at Wimbledon. I think either or both would be excellent additions for next season and I also think Lawrence Shankland (whom I know has been on our radar before) at Dundee United would be a good punt.
Fulham look likely to go down this season so it may be possible to sign Knockaert on a permanent deal as Premiership football wouldn't seem to be an option for him, at least with Fulham, and similar comments would seem to apply to Krovinovic. We might be able to persuade Man. United to let us have Garner on loan for another season but, sadly, I think that's pretty unlikely.
We also need to get McKenna fully fit and look at the full-back situation.
However, in the meantime, I thought last night's performance was very encouraging and, although we lost, I don't feel that relegation is too much of a worry, particularly when you look at the predicament of Wycombe, Birmingham, Sheffield Wednesday and Coventry from which I think the bottom three will emerge.

Nice one 1958 and i agree re jephcot and piggot i think they could make the stepup. I also thing that figs needs a mention too. Since mckenna dropped out figs has stepped up and his prformances have been rock solid.

The goal conceded was nothing to do with Ribeiro, what else was he supposed to do, turn round and rugby tackle the guy to the ground. It was a split second lack in concentration from Christie to allow the cross to come in.

plenty of time to punch the ball - goalkeeper error - again!
