OK Mon and Co season done with last chance saloon in my book. Its not about winning today but how u play style and effort. Drop the dross that's been playing since u came in players and style show why we should invest our support in u and the players. No loans from now on unless they are staying give some people a chance to show you what it means to wear the badge and be on the pitch to play and not just collecting a wage packet. Legends should stay that way not ruin it by trying to come back.

Everything good this season has come through carvalho i doubt he'll be a forest player next season and will be shipped off to our "parent club" like to believe in mon but feel football has moved on since his days at keeping a mediocre leicester side in the premiership

Agree3 11Disagree

23 Apr 2019 07:24:58
How many games has Carvallaho played where the game has simply passed him by. Been out muscled out thought and his second touch a tackle? Talent he has no doubt but he is not always this good. I said a while back that he needed with drawing from the battle and spend a little time watching from the bench or stands to get a better feel for his position. Maybs this has worked wonders for him and he is being better mamaged bu oneil?

Boro had a makeshift defence and with oneil putting willing runners in cash and osborn it gave carvallho the space to operate. With 3 at the back you coukd argue it was genious by oneil??
However carvallaho looked a different player and man yesterday free of any shackles and gave praise where it is due he looked extemely good yesterdsy and well done and fairplay to him.

Carvalho impressed me just as much with his tracking back, especially the first half. Good to see him doing the ugly side of the game, not just the flash parts. As the cliche goes, he's set the bar for future performances.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Apr 2019 09:37:03
To be fair MON has only ever said that Carvalho was a talented player. He does not seem to want to get rid of him since this week he said he felt it appropriate that JC has seen what a struggle 9 months of solid football is like. What I've noticed time and again is that when he plays alongside both Osborn and Lolley, their inter-passing seems to be spot on, so these two players tend to help get the best out of him. If Grabban was a little less selfish on the ball he might prosper more alongside JC too.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 Apr 2019 09:37:57
Great to see us have such good win and sparks new hope for next year.

What we don't see is what is going on behind the scenes and on the training ground. Carvalho is still very young and maybe they have also been building up his physicality and confidence. I don't think we would spend all that money on someone with no talent.

Hopefully he has set himself a standard now to follow, well done Forest.

I feel a bit sick right now as rumours emerge about MON future. Marakinakis was full of praise when he interviewed Martin saying his enthusiasm was overwhelming. Givem Martins experience and absolute honesty i would like to think that he would be given a chance to vindicate his alppointment. Look at the reality of the injuries he inherited and the huge squad of averageness. A couple of days of crap window to shore up the defence?

Its crucial that msrikinakis invest time in oneil and let's him shuffle this squad and bring in his players. I admit to being baffled by the team sheets and the seemingly lack of conviction from the plsyers on matchday. Is oneil just dussing out the characters he wants to keep? I thought when AK left thst Bruce was a goid fit but got many thumbs down.

I doubt even he coukd get a tune out of this bloated and fragmented squad. Its going to be painful between now and the season end but its essential to get this squad rinsed of the dross and a clean slate for Oneil. You can see it now out with the Brit and in comes Johnny foreigner and his ambitious calamatous vision for a quick fix. It will be another disaster. Just look at that squad? Can you really level ALL the blame at a hapless Oneil?

If Marikinakis pulls the trigger so prematurely it will show him as impatient and petulant, insincere and desperate. Many good things have happened under his stewardship but getting the right manager and assembling a tight talented squad has been a huge failing. He needs to grasp reality and support Oneil right now. MAYBE MON is not the right manager but should he be judged and sentenced on the mistakes of previous managers poor judgement? I think you all know the answer!

If you’re a good manager, you take average players and make them good, and good players exceptional. You make the most with what you have and bring in to improve the squad by buying players to turn a weak area into a strength. Since AK left, our strength of being fairly hard to beat has faltered, our attacking prowess has left us, and we’ve played more formations than in the previous two seasons. It could be argued that inconsistency in a shape is causing players to make poor tactical decisions which is then causing us to be easier to break down. AK played a system, it might not have been pretty or always effective but it was consistent and thus hard to break down. I personally don’t think MON should go, but I think if he doesn’t stick to a system he won’t be here come the start of next season.

Agree12 7Disagree

18 Apr 2019 11:07:30
Ever since Martin came in these players have become trash overnight. They’re that bad he’s been forced to play our best centre mid at leftback, drop our most creative player to the bench when we can’t score and leave our center back in the stands so we can play our best leftback there. Now this sounds confusing and that’s because it is. MON needs to go.

Agree14 7Disagree

18 Apr 2019 12:44:47
I wouldn’t say that. The issue lies with the fact that MON is taking a while to settle in and get his team set up but he’s not doing it quick enough and people are becoming disillusioned. He just needs to stick to one thing until the end of the season and if that’s round pegs in square holes then so be it. As long as players know what they’re supposed to do rather than what they think they should do we’ll improve. I think there’s too much freedom for too many players which is why we’re conceding and don’t look a team.

Agree3 9Disagree

18 Apr 2019 13:00:48
He just needs to play the best players in their right positions and forget the hoof ball tactics. Something he is too stubborn to do.

18 Apr 2019 23:00:00
Just to clarify 79’ In my opinion

Colback is our best CM
Robinson is our best LB
Milosevic should be playing CB
Carvahol should be playing CAM

I don’t rate Osborn, if we want to challenge at the right end Osborn isn’t in the team.

Agree14 2Disagree

19 Apr 2019 19:29:42
Jamie ward is better than osborne, I would like to o Neil get his 18 months after all we'd go through 4 managers I that time ,and if he was to go whos coming in overseas managers are not going to do us any good they don't know the league if we was to change I'd bring in David Blaine as we need a fcking magician do do any thing here, I'd settle for some decent moving off the ball passing and getting a few shots on goal

Well everybody is having a go at pick and mix with the squad.
The fact is the squad was assembled to play out from the back and be solid in midfield. and playing on the break That was working until our centre halves got injured.
You cannot expect the team to adapt mid season to playing a completely different way with a new manager so stop moaning and just accept that MON is giving everyone a go to see who he wants for next year.
Pre season has started early. We will dump at least 10 in June when contracts run out. The youngsters are not quite ready but we have a core of good pro's upon which to rebuild the squad.
I could not care less if we lose all the remaining matches as individual performances will determine who is up for next season?

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Apr 2019 17:17:14
You might not care but people are paying money to watch this garbage. He hasn’t shown us anything progressive or deserving of a shot next season. So instead of telling people what to do consider what’s best for the fans and our poor necks. hoooof.

Cant switch to a different style ?? I've seen teams make 3 subs at half time and from playing it out from the to long ball because the opposition have stepped the pitch, they have played football from a young age and are paid well to play they should be able to follow instructions and tactics so is that managers fault or players maybe both

We were so predictable under AK, people knew how to negate our football and our players easily. Now MON is mixing it up and using different personnel in different places to negate the opposition you want to go back to the predictable? In that case whatever the guy does in your opinion he cannot get it right. Either we give him a couple of seasons to see some improvement or we jump on to another manager and stay on the Championship merry-go-round and hover in the bottom 10 for the next 3-4 years until Marinakis goes.We need to stick with these men until they can build the right team to go up, let's face it few apart from Lolley could be any use in the Premier League - most of us agree on that. A sow's ear doesn't become a silk purse in 14 weeks.

Agree7 11Disagree

17 Apr 2019 18:04:48
Bsered, I have said it before, if the team is playing rubbish football and losing the manager is on a hiding to nothing, if the team is playing good football while losing people will give the manager a bit more time because they are being entertained.

2star has said the club were naive not to take into account the way Martin has got his teams to play in recent history and should not have been brought in.

Think about it, when we get another manager the odds are the new manager will have a different style to Martins long ball game, so another big overhaul will be needed.

Agree4 1Disagree

17 Apr 2019 18:51:49
Brilliant! Best news I’ve heard for ages and just what I’ve been waiting and looking for everyday. Just hope it’s true.
And bsered, you are deluded my friend. I would much rather have Krankie and his style of play than the drivel and tripe we have been served up under O’Neill. And if anyone thinks that things will improve then they need to give their head a wobble.

Agree7 4Disagree

Oneill is out thinking himself.
You say predictable under karanka we may of been predictable but teams would struggle to beat us which you need in the championship.chnging things up and changing the squad week in week out isn’t the sign of a man that knows what he’s Norwich Leeds sheff u keep changing things up as to not be predictable?lol.
Next you will be telling us the owner is picking the team.
It’s head out of backsides time,O’Neill is past it and having keane upsetting players isn’t helping one bit.

I can’t believe the rubbish you lot put on here.
MON and RK have had no time to settle or bring in

We will probably have another 2 by next January.
MON & RK are proven winners give them a chance and some respect.

More rubbish, short sighted gains , Bruce has been run out of many clubs, drawing with the sheep, Rotherham stoke
All he has done is steadied the ship. If he was at Forest you would be calling for his head also if not now probably by November. Some fans will never be satisfied.
let’s Run the manager then the owner out of this great club see where that gets us.

Fobosh - completely agree fella, there is so much short sightedness on here from some, wouldn't it be nice just for once for everyone to stick with a manager and back them.

Chopping and changing the manager every year is not progress and asking for the current managers head is just starting from scratch again.

I'm pretty sure O'Neil has been trying to do his best with what he has to get to the play-offs, that would have been great, but let's be honest, we are not ready for promotion as much fun as that would be.

Lets hope we see some entertaining football between now and the end of the season as I'm sure they will try a few things. Happy Easter all.

With the large amount of overseas signings and loanees we have made, many of poor quality, the main gainers have been the usual suspects - Agents.
British signings, scouted by our own scouts would surely have been much better value for money and a much better team would have resulted!

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2019 21:35:02
Inconsistency has been our biggest problem in recent seasons and for me this can be traced to our disastrous overseas recruitment of players.

In the last 6 seasons we have signed 36 players from outside the English League and yet only Moussi (average at best) has played regularly for more than a season.

Only Pinillos, Oliveria, Figueiredo and
Carvalho have offered improvement on other squad players with the jury out on Pele. Milosevic and Soudani.

Little wonder we cannot maintain a challenge when these players cannot hit the ground running?

It's clear most of these signings have been stop gap signings rather than managers first pick. So until this policy changes we will not move forward.

You can't just blame it on poor imports red it's not like many will be top notch as they are coming to the championship not the premier.
We've signed a lot of poor British players as well.
Biggest problem is signing players in general that are on the decline.

Hi to be honest, I really don't know why we have such a under performing team. on paper our players look more than enough to cope with most of the teams in this league yet again they just don't play.

I know it's a managers job to get his teams motivated and all that but the players must also take a long hard look at themselves for the crap they produce they let everyone down including themselves I do feel for the fans that come here I feel for those of us on rubbish wages that still pay tickets so can somone please wave a magic wand get us playing again. coyr.
