By the way what's our Nigel going on about saying post match "we can't bemoan referee ing decisions". He can't because, though I think Stroud is usually poor, today he got most things right today including the shout against Jordan Smith for a penalty when he clearly got the ball first before clattering into the Burton lad.

We do need a stable environment but with warburton he doesn't really know who his best players are? to be honest he should go back to banking.
I feel for the players who could help us win yet can't get into the squad.
He stated in an article from the post he THINKS fox and mancienne may form a good a good partnership, strange coming from the manager.

Eric Lichaj will be going to West Brom in January for £2.5 million. Deal is done. Hench the 'lap of honour' after he scored the second goal which in essence was a goodbye to the fans. Bad move in my opinion.

I wish it was bull Lander but we need to sell players and £2.5 million for a player that's out of contract in the summer is good business.

Well Psycho could be right (but hopefully not). Watching Chipper's post match interview with Warburton Chippers was saying how good Eric played and about his goal celebration. Amazingly Warburton starts talking about Darikwa and what a great future ha has at Forest, totally deflecting Chippers statement. The fact that Eric hasn't been offered a new contract by now is very worrying.

LDN Red. I wouldn't be happy selling our best players.
I am just stating facts nothing more.
If warburton continues his ways come January we will be fighting a relegation battle.

His No2 was alleged to be a good defender yet we leak goals.!
The talent is there and some of it is wasted by being played in incorrect positions and holding back players not getting a chance in the first team.
Yes i agree he is the best mangager forest have had but he is not the one to take the club forward.

His tactics are one dimensional and the teams we play are aware of it.
I like others do not want to see our great club fail again with bad management and tactics etc.

Hi Fawaz’s Bank Balance - kind of you to start of a new rumour yet fail to say anything in the way of fact.

Must we listen to this again?!?!

The facts are they Warbs does and has had a plan B, we regularly change shape during games altering between 4 and 3 at the back. If you didn’t notice on Sunday, we played a higher percentage of long balls from the back than previous fixtures. I suppose when Osborn moved to CM in the Newcastle game, that was an accident?

I’m afraid I heard little fact but plenty of opinion - which you’re entitled to have!

If he’s our best manager in a while then stick with him, show faith and let him build something special. This side is still a couple of transfer windows away from where Warbs needs it to be!

Hi LND Red.....the statistics from the past games speak for themselves.
He employs tip tap football the ilke that is done by Barcelona etc!
Granted he is the best manager in a long time but is he right for forest?
You as a fan must surely appreciate that we pay good money to our team win only to them suffer defeats!

Yes we play good football and have possession of the ball but this doesn't materialise to goals does it?
How much time would you wish to give him before we spiral into a relegation battle of which we scraped through with the skin of teeth last season?
I like others DO NOT wish to see this happen but something has to give....either the breadman changes his decisions and tactics or the inevitable will happen.
You can't tell me you are happy with things at present with the losses and letting in soft goals etc?

So tell me where is the breadmans plan b?
It's all well and good saying yes we lost but we played well and we are a work in progress....same old bull at each post match interview.

17 Oct 2017 20:06:07
He isn't going to change and I can't see why you think he should or will.
Arsene Wenger hasn't changed and he's had to put up with pundits who havn't got the balls to be a manager.
He'll do it his way and will either succeed or fail.
So if you expect him to change ,you'll be very disappointed

Agree1 2Disagree

18 Oct 2017 05:21:48
Arsene Wenger is a different class compared to warburton so in fairness there's no comparison between them.
I really do hope he can adapt the players to play his way but as you state warburton won't change.
Time will tell and maybe i shall be proved wrong about him but is there a solution to the losses thus far and if there is one what could it be?

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Oct 2017 07:11:24
I am with LDN on this. Patience needed. Do people reay want the upheaval of a new manager and staff coming in? Again?? We knew this wouldn't happen over night. We are as close to the playoffs as we are to relegation. I feel at least 1 new cb in jan could help (flint would have been great but too expensive now). Stay up and build. Even without signings we will be stronger. Smith, Worrall and Cash will have a season behind them. Also Brereton but he does need to play up top.

Agree5 2Disagree

18 Oct 2017 10:10:52
We need 2/3 centre halves because the one's we've got are League One standard at best. Sacking the manager is not the way forward. We don't need stats to tell us where the problems are. Just watching the games tells us we can't defend and we're not creating many clear-cut chances. That could be down to a lack of striker movement or lack of a creative edge or a combination of both. Too often the ball is played side to side and then back which could also be down to lack of movement in the forward area's. We do look better with 4 at the back but that just papers over the cracks in terms of the quality of the central pairing.

Also psycho a team playing with confidence takes more chances and risks. A team with low confidence plays nervy deep and safe.

If Forest lose to burton i think it's time to bite the bullet and get rid of the breadman.
Why wait until January?
If the decline continues division 1 will be on the cards.
Poor squad choices, formations and tactics are failing the team.
I appreciate it's easy to blame the manager but results do not lie and he make the decision on who plays and where etc.

Wondered how long that would take for get rid comments, its patience that's required not knee jerk reactions.

We played alright and just didn't take our chances when we had them.

16 Oct 2017 12:20:18
we officially have the worst form in the league. I agree we need to give the manager more time but it gets to a point where you have to accept that we will soon be starring relegation in the face. let's hope he manages to turn it around because I've seen no improvement so far. on a side note, forests MOTM on Sunday - Lichaj by a country mile.

Agree20 0Disagree

16 Oct 2017 21:27:34
How long does he get / how many losses until you think we need to change?
Personally I'm in two minds and to be brutally honest I haven't seen enough of us playing this season to have an opinion that is balanced - what I have seen suggests that he doesn't adapt to the opposition either before or during a game - and plays players out of position / in a formation they clearly aren't comfortable with.

Agree5 3Disagree

17 Oct 2017 06:00:19
Except that's exactly what he did do against Sheffield Utd. He should be given until January

I would agree that our defence is not all the problem it is the lightweight literally and metaphorically mid field. We never replaced Henry Lansbury like for like . Osborne is best on the wing and I am afraid bridcutt is afraid to tackle or pass in a forward direction or go past a man . However the management team can only do they're best with offers for players and if they don't want to come what can they do?

Slightly hindering us a little don't you think?

Gordon Strachan hit the nail on the head. The talent pool in Scotland is not physically strong enough.

If Forest keep signing these lighweights we will be playing League 1 football next season.

There may well be one manager available in a few weeks time. Martin O'Neill is the one manager we have never had that we should have had and he showed the other night he can still get sides up for the challenges. He may well have one more job in him and if the RoI don't qualify for the World Cup he may just be available for the January transfer window.

I'm not advocating change as such but availability of alternatives may be just as important in the timing of a managerial change as results.

Agree5 0Disagree

16 Oct 2017 20:37:46
O'Neil once stated in a tv interview that he would like to manage Forest before he hangs up his managers jacket and I hope he is true to his word
Saying this I hope that MW can find the right formula and change our fortunes but with us conceding most games and never looking like we can score a hat full I doubt it

People say you can't keep changing managers, you need to give them a chance to stamp their mark and I agree as long as the manager is the right one
Is MW the right one? I hope he is but with his dodgy selections and tactics I fear he is not

Agree1 1Disagree

16 Oct 2017 21:52:56
Another way of looking at it is,most of the players he's inherited.
He has to sell our star striker.
He's given a budget and wage structure to work to,which looks low.
Can't see Oneil working with those restraints.
If you look at the big picture,we are signing young players for the future,
At the end of the season we will be saying goodbye to Fox Hobbs Eric Mills Vaughan Chohen Ward Carayol.
Most contracts are up.
Part of that is the reason we havn't signed defenders yet,
You can't buy a team when you already have a 25 man squad,it takes time.

Agree2 4Disagree

17 Oct 2017 09:39:22
We should have a self imposed transfer embargo on all things Scottish.

Martin O'Neil will not come back into club management for family reasons.

Warbo is staying as the three standout candidates who would do a better job are not available to Forest.

We need to get through the season to clear out those whose contracts expire next year with the exception of Lichaj.

We need to sign/loan a couple of strong pacey midfielders, pick the best 2 central defenders for Warbo and the team to survive the season.

Other than that we are going in the right direction of travel!

Agree1 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 11:07:00
Couldn't agree more red,trouble is to many fickle fans who want overnight success.

Agree1 4Disagree

17 Oct 2017 20:31:33
I do not expect overnight success but would like to see us putting more pressure on the oppositions back line.
The players he has "inherited" seem to be out of favour such as Eric mustapha and Vellios even though tgey ate proven to give us pace and power.
Instead he plays the diddy men and a striker on the wing?
He failed to bring in defensive cover but added more midfield bench warmers?
Right direction of travel????

Warburton has no plan b.
I was on holiday back in june and got freindly with a gang of Rangers fans. how right they are. they slated warburton stating he plays his way regardless off the players abilities playing from the back
and having a habit of playing his FAVOURITES and lack of tactics when defending.

Believable6 5Unbelievable

15 Oct 2017 18:19:57
Same story here, Rangers fans in my family said the same.
Fact is we've lost 7 games already. Only 1 other team has lost more.Plenty of possession with no substance and we don't move the ball quick enough. McKay chance aside the rest were half chances.

Agree7 1Disagree

15 Oct 2017 18:36:41
He baffled me today with his decisions,but if we start calling for his head and the Greeks oblige,then we are back to square one.
New manager comes in and if he's not performing to your liking after a dozen games,you want another.
There's a lot of work been done and plenty more to be done,but we're not splashing the cash and you get what you pay for,got a fully fit squad again now,bar Cohen,so got to give it longer or we might as well fit a revolving door to the managers office.

Agree8 7Disagree

15 Oct 2017 18:55:21
Appreciate what your saying FF79 but I'm gearing up for another scrap at the bottom come the end of the season.
Folk have slated past managers but I find this slow tip tap football boring and predictable.

15 Oct 2017 19:15:45
Think we'll manage mid table,we've not got the players for a relegation scrap.
Think he'll be given at least till Xmas,but the owners will not want relegation after getting so many bums on seats,so warbo will know better than anyone that results need to improve.

Agree3 3Disagree

15 Oct 2017 19:36:54
why wait till xmas, time is right after burton game. more games for new manager to stop the rot

keeper not good enough, center backs not good enough, we need a captain with a voice who can organize is the breadman up to the task yes if he changes his ways and plays his best players,why don't he play hobbs or velios,should of gone 4 4 2 today

Give over with all this changing manager nonsense. We have commenced a major rebuilding of the club and we need to recycle at least another 6 players to play competitively and the way Warbo wants to play.

Agree8 5Disagree

15 Oct 2017 21:24:12
It's alright getting rid,puts the club back in turmoil,coaches mcparland,players that were signed,all have to go the new boss will want his own men.
Costs millions and no guarantee things will improve on the pitch.
This is how this club has got in such a mess and some of you want more of it?

Agree4 3Disagree

15 Oct 2017 21:43:25
Totaly agree red in ex. No new manager. Just realistic fans please. We stayed up on goal difference. We were a wreck off the pitch. Mid table great but as long as we stay up i am happy. Carry on the rebuild and look for improvement next season.

15 Oct 2017 23:55:18
He’s had more time and better players than pm did last season and we still aren't much better off if anything.we have good possessions stats that should keep us up.
Fans cried out for pm to go yet people stick up for warbo when the defence is still no better.

Agree4 1Disagree

15 Oct 2017 23:55:37
The club needs consistency! It cannot afford to keep rotating managers every season. What do people think will happen if we change manager?

We’re undergoing a huge renervation currently and we got back 18months if we don’t continue. Those asking for Warbs to go must ask themselves if they got too used to the Fawaz revolving door policy that they themselves condemned.

16 Oct 2017 04:51:11
Change managers again and think of the cost. That means no new players in Jan or another imbargo. Madness.

This is how the fans who want to sack MW look in my opinion:
Last season: FAWAZ OUT!!! WE WANT STABILITY!!! Thank god we survived!

This season: SACK THE MANAGER! We need to act now! We should be near the top half!

I’m not saying that anyone is right or wrong but we do need to have stability and perspective. We’ve lost a few games, we’ve won a few. Look at the players on the pitch, they didn’t look like they’d lost confidence, didn’t go negative, they kept trying to play and created chances. This just shows that the players believe in MW. We unfortunately have pretty much the same defence as last season, and quite honestly I felt comfortable when we were defending yesterday. I loved attacking, I hated losing and as my family will tell you it put me in a mood. I didn’t blame the manager, I didn’t blame the players, I accepted we lost and was gutted we’d lost to the Sheep Botherers. So please instead of going back to Fawaz style revolving doors and instability. Accept that we will lose some, we are improving, we aren’t the finished article and we will be fine.

Agree6 3Disagree

16 Oct 2017 06:32:40
Ormfitt. warburton has one style of play,no plan b as he always refers too.
A minus goal difference and players who can't hit a barn door,a leaky defence like a dripping tap!
The manager picks the team,leaves decent players out. need i go on!
Come Jan you will change your mind about the breadman if he continues his way of playing and squad choices.

Agree1 2Disagree

16 Oct 2017 09:23:00
No Fawaz’s Bank Balance, it’ll be you who complains again in 6months when we’ve sold our best players, change our system and struggle again to reach the top ten.

I suppose you’ll be happy with that? It seems so. Warbs is the best manager we’ve had in a long while, he needs at the very least until January of next season.

Amazes me how people have no foresight. We’ve been here before!

Agree3 2Disagree

13 Oct 2017 22:51:24
3 points on Sunday will put us only 6 points off an automatic promotion spot.

Just goes to show despite recent doom and gloom if we can sort out the defence we are contenders?
