Tough to dress that up, felt like a loss.

Pantillimons in the chair for his strange keeping display, distribution was garbage. Next up Heff, looked like a competition winner all of a sudden. Janko miscontrolled basic passes and got nothing going with Cash.

A defensive mess all in, Millwall could have bagged double figures with the high ball.

Been an advocate of Carvalho on here, no excuses, he looked poor last night aside from the free kick. i'd also go as far as to say the 20 mill for Dias looks unlikely.

Should have won, shouldn't have been spooked into a rearguard at 2-1.

Boro will fancy it Saturday I suspect.

Nowt against the game plan, just think it was executed very poorly.

Cjay wasn’t it u that used the phrase ‘impregnable ‘ at the back?

Nope, but I could have done before the last 2 games given we're up their in the defensive stats.

We were awful at the back last night, mainly due to Pants & Heffele, backed up in parts by Janko. Bad nights don't make you garbage.

Happy to be negative when needed, as opposed to all the time.

To be fair Stevie f they have been impregnable in the last few games but think all of the back four had a seriously bad game last night. Think the manager could not fathem out what the heck was happening and though not trying to tell him his game me thinks putting Dias in was the wrong sub.
Just cannot make my mind up on Pants. Was a seating force when he came last season but is blowing hit and cold this time out. If we are going to be any sort of a challenge we need a commanding man between the posts as all drives forward from there and gives confidence to the back four. Clough's words but he stated defence.

End of the day it's the home draws that are costing us a comfortable top 6 position. However you judge the performance we were 2-0 up with 20 odd mins to go and should see it out.Pants had a shocker for the first and watch the second,Janko,Heff and Robinson all have to do better.Robinson was tracking back with Gregory then just stopped running! Next 4 games look really tough.

Cjay good post. But did i hear you right that Dias is an option at £20mil???? I have gone faint. We have better accademy players. We need the likes of Tomlin not Dias. Tomlin brought guile and cleverness to the team and was strong. These 3 lightweights will never cut it in this league.

20 million Euros Rutland. Which looks about 19 million heavy.

How can anyone say we were looking impregnable before last night?
Two last night
Two at Blackburn
Two against stoke
One against sheff weds
If that's impregnable I'd hate to see us start shipping goals.lol

Karankas shipped an average of 1 per game over 26 games preceding the Stoke game.

Thats a decent return & "impregnable" seems fair in a free scoring league like the Championship.

Fair to say our standards are slipping? Yep. But idf clean sheets are the standard, then the bars too high.

Cjay you have a strange idea of what a good defence is.
Mind you it's been that long since we've seen one at forest.
