We have been robbed of 6 points this season (Leeds, WBA and Preston) . With 55 points we would be in the pick n mix. When so much money is at stake and manager's jobs. it's not good enough and time for VARS.

I agree VAR is the answer. But I believe a side as in Cricket and Hockey should be limited to two requests each per half

No. No limit. Just only use it on game deciding decisions. Only on Sending off, penalty and whether a goal is scored. All three of the 3 shockers would have been reviewed under that rule. Basically decisions that decide games should always be right!

At the same time, you can't start using it every time the whistle blows. But the decisions above should be right every time. Full stop!

Agree3 2Disagree

RC, you say whether a goal is scored, i take that to mean has the ball crossed the line, if there is any doubt.

What about when someone wins a free kick and it gets put away, would you want to check if they deserved the free kick.

We have had our fair share of luck, too. Cash looked like he dived against Wigan to get us that penalty also clumsy darikwa’s airkick on that Derby player should’ve been a pen. But it’s different when it’s Derby tbh cause I hate them. And biggest of all we had a hell of a lot of luck in somehow getting rid of Gil Dias. Hates having possession that guy and loves a head-down run into nowhere.

LC. What I mean is if the ball is in the net, replay it. A replay would show any foul, whether the ball crossed the line, etc. Grabban's goal would have stood.

I’d say 8 points Red in Brazil if you include the Norwich away game, they equalised after the added time was up.

TAP I think that the officials get round that by referring to it as the minimum amount of time added on.

Good to see Martin sorting out our discipline on the pitch,is today our first game without a booking?
Starting to look like a proper team with discipline and the players understanding their roles and what is expected of them.

Can't do nothing about referees decisions and Martin is leading by example and while he's disapionted,he isn't going overboard about it.
Robinson has been one card away from a ban for a few games now, he wouldn't have managed that before Martin came,he's picked up some stupid bookings this season.

One which cost us the three points.
All in all we are getting better and stronger.

Believable7 2Unbelievable

17 Feb 2019 16:32:33
To be fair I think was more down to the ref keeping his cards in his pocket. Both centre halves and Yates would have picked up bookings any other day.

I don't think I've ever seen a ref call a Captain over to warn him about defenders tackling. They must be pretending not to speak English?

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Feb 2019 16:56:13
To go unbeaten last 3 games against brenford, wba and preston is extemely good in my opinion. And to think it could have and probably should have been 9 poinys just shows we are improving. Bring on the sheep

Agree3 2Disagree

16 Feb 2019 20:21:42
We were out of luck, but what is a real plus is that MON/RK worked out how Preston play and stopped them doing just that. We had some bad luck and Grabban failed to take a chance, but we are moving our formations around and the two central defenders are stopping the old aerial threats and crosses.

We are improving and holding our own. Never give up: other results could surprise everyone. Hang in there and see if we can sweep up a few wins after Direby. This League can change rapidly, teams can falter, players can get injured, We look a much better team now, they need all our help on Monday!

It will be a close game tomorrow but a Forest win with some good favour that we are surely due. I suspect the side to be unchanged tomorrow but sorry would not want Murphy on for the last 15 as happened on Tuesday. He is not able to run like Lolley and I felt the change gave WBA more freedom to run fioreward. Maybe no sub tomorrow or Bonatini.

Yacob for Watson. When Murphy came on you'd have thought he was the player that needed bringing off for a rest. Zero effort to get at the WBA defense.

Appiah played yesterday against Barnsley. So far he's not even making the bench, so maybe MON/RK not so impressed?

Next poor ref decision will be a disallowed goal for us in the last minute for a victory.
When he writes up tonight's match report l wonder if he will put he made a bad call . He will know he has, it's up to the refs panel to make a judgement on his penalty. That sort of decision may cost clubs many millions re promotion or relegation.

13 Feb 2019 05:45:38
Refs make mistakes that’s a fact always have they are only human but what I didn’t like from mason was he never gave himself even a second of thinking time blew his whistle straight away now to me that says he was 100% convinced that a foul as been committed an yet there wasn’t one so how can he give it and the lolley one was pathetic he saw the shirt pull but bottled giving us a pen all in all he should get a 3 game ban an be made to explain to the fa and forest his actions but won’t happen

Agree3 0Disagree

13 Feb 2019 10:46:56
I actually feel a little sorry for Mason. He was sold a dud by Gayle and that is bad but he was looking at the ball and players feet for Lolley pen and other officials did nothing. I think VAR need improving before being used but maybe it is time we had 4 or 6 assistants maybe behind goals who are there to help with these big decisions? So often one man (the ref) has to be watching everything and linesmen are rubbish and can’t keep up. this season Forest have had some big decisions go against them. is hard to know the answers but the FA really need to sort it as some decisions this season have been crazy!

Agree0 3Disagree

13 Feb 2019 11:19:14
Gayle should get a 3 game ban for that, it's the only way to discourage people from diving.

Well done Forest, really unlucky not to get 3 great away points.

Agree3 1Disagree

14 Feb 2019 03:41:37
For me all it needs is the 4th official to be watching the replays on an iPad or something an he could alert the ref through his mic

10 Feb 2019 23:23:23
I've heard some balls in my time. This is the latest theme.

Apparently, Karanka persisting with Grabban taking penalties and playing the lightweight Carvalho even when we needed to be solid in midfield had nothing to do with Forest losing. In fact he was doing a great job and we were making progress and signed some good players.

Wait for it. But now we have a boss who immediately recognises what any smart observer does - that we need another penalty taker - and also plays a stronger young player in place of the lightweight Carvalho which succeeds in keeping the scores down has absolutely nothing to do with us winning.

Oh and now we have strengthened this progress making squad we are apparently going backwards.

DENIAL!

That therefore is 10 points out of 18 for Forest.

I agree, tough fixtures approaching. But they are not the ones that worry me. Well only the ones against bottom half teams. Top 8 clubs rarely beat the mighty Reds!

I'm not sure about the keeper. I think he's had bad games when I haven't seen him so you probably right but let's get a top international WHEN we go up at the end f the season. EVER THE OPTIMIST!

I reckon Keano and MON get the significance of the Derby match since no manager apart from Psycho. The players will be MOTIVATED to another level for that one.

COYR!

Agree1 2Disagree

11 Feb 2019 16:58:55
I think it's too soon to be comparing Karanka's era with MON's.

Karanka's dismissal was harsh, yet another Manager not given enough time. And the performances under MON have been industrious but not very pretty with mixed results.

Really don't see how you can favour one over the other at present without having some kind of bias or trying to assert some hidden agenda.

Karankas the reason we got this massive squad an also unbalanced one, clearly needed defenders in the summer yet we signed about 10 midfielders lol

11 Feb 2019 20:39:32
And ain't that the truth, the amount of holding midfielders he had was and is ridiculous.

Agree2 2Disagree

11 Feb 2019 21:00:26
Cyclist are you really that naive to think MON didn’t know who our penalty taker was and how many he’s missed this season before Saturday? If MON had given the job to someone else I would respect your argument but he allowed him to take it so get over it.

Is it Redinexile back. It was your opinion that we were doomed to lose if we played Osbourne at left back and didn't play Carvalho wasn't it?

You were wrong. Eat some humble pie.

Agree2 8Disagree

12 Feb 2019 12:36:21
We didn't need defenders in the Summer. We had Figs, Fox and Worrall, then went on to sign Dawson and Hefele. Five was enough, so much so that we were able to send Worrall out on loan and at the time no one complained. don't try and change the past to suit your agenda.

In the championship there is always ‘tough games coming up’ I actually think the next 7-8 games are winnable and potentially will change everything. We have a fair few home games (which we have done well in most the season) and we haven’t got to play any of top 8 apart from Derby but against Derby form goes out the window a bit.
Is impossible to really predict much in this league but we are looking tough to beat this season and think there are signs we are starting to take chances lately.
Preston away will be hard and Derby but other games coming up I expect us to take quite a few points in and others will drop points as they play each other! I am still believing that we can be this season Fulham!

Agree0 0Disagree

Every goalie in the league knows where Grabban puts the penalty, get someone else to take them Martin 😞

Believable10 1Unbelievable

09 Feb 2019 19:21:22
Taking penalties is more about power and hitting the target rather than which part of the goal you aim for.

The goalkeeper can get it right where you will place the ball, but if it is hard enough, and off course get on target,the speed will much more often than not beat the goalkeeper.

Redtree, I saw Martins interview on the highlights show this morning, and you are right.

Martin on being told by the presenter i'm no manager and and i would not tell you what to do, but Grabban has missed 4 of his last 7 penalties perhaps someone else should take them Martin said i might agree with you on that.

He went on to praise Grabban for the good game he had which was good to see in my view.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Feb 2019 15:55:43
Or instead of just slagging off our top striker, the fans could back him to score the next one and the also the coaches could offer extra practice??

Agree1 3Disagree

10 Feb 2019 16:44:38
What planet are you on Kim.

He has missed 4 out of the 7 penalties. Martin has as good as said he will not be taking anymore penalties.

As far as the coaches giving him extra practice, if he did not listen to Karanka and his coaching staff why is he going to listen to Martin and his coaches.

He is a excellent striker, but has a sloppy attitude to penalties.

Go and give Martin the same message if it bothers you so much.

Agree2 1Disagree

10 Feb 2019 16:46:08
Very fair point that Kimbo.

Agree2 1Disagree

10 Feb 2019 23:15:38
We would be top six if someone had taken those four missed penalties. So it is Grabban's fault not Krankie that this team are not in the top six.

Oh no, it was Karanka that made him the penalty taker then persisted with having a suspect penalty taker! One penalty, hears about the misses and MON decides we need another penalty taker. That was easy. You'd think the old boss was as stubborn as his mentor and couldn't change his mind when wrong.

Long live MON!
