Kenny Burns has said if Fox and Tobias keep performing as they are they could be fighting it out for player of the yesr.

Would that be deserved.?

He`s been amazing this season. Its a shame he was sent off against Burton, but its worked out with him losing his starting place, as he will be less of a miss on the international break, in respect that he can have time to recover.
Hope he does well and gets his world cup call up.

Still, he deserves the call up.

Worrall and Mancienne getting injured and falling ill in the week building up to the Burton game forced Karanka's hand and may have saved our season.
Since then we've kept 4 clean sheets in the last 7 games with Figueiredo and Fox at centre half so it was a blessing in disguise.

Yes Watson and Colback have provided a more solid wall in front of the back four but would we have kept those 4 clean sheets with Mancienne and Worrall playing? I very much doubt it and remember Colback played in front of them against Fulham and Hull when we conceded 2 in both games.

Got to agree Fred it shouldn't work on paper but it is.
That's football for you Fred we can all day play Eric he's far better than darikwa? Play anyone except fox as he's crapp?
But sometimes it works as they have an understanding that the so called better players don't.
Can't knock the defensive side of the team.

Would AK have dropped worrall and mancienne anyway? Worrying if its just luck that forced his hand. Mancienne for me, and i said it many times is poor. I hops worrall watches and learns. He will have future with us for sure. Lkke most on here was delighted that fox has been drafted into the middle. Pants has been a revelation in goal for many reasons but his organisational qualities shine through.
To go to bramall lane, a tough rough team fighting for promotion and keep a clean sheet is commendable and to come out on top second half is evidence of ambition. Well done lads.

AK knew Manc was no captain and brought in Watson to do the job, the injury was a bit of luck for him. Manc's a possible transfer in the summer, a pity because there is a good footballer in there somewhere.

18 Mar 2018 14:05:27
I have to say the last few games I watched Worrall play were painful, just mistake after mistake and treating the ball like an unexploded bomb that might explode any second. No doubt he’ll come good but he had started costing us points

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Mar 2018 20:20:31
I reckon that getting rid of the ball like an unexploded bomb thing is a hangover from Warburton's ridiculous demand that we ALWAYS played out from the back. How many goals did that gift? Remember Hobbs and Jordan v Sheff Weds? That was a turning point for me. It made two pro's look stupid and gave the opposition ANOTHER goal head-start. We don't see that rubbish any more now we have a defender who has played at the highest level in charge. Hmmm.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Mar 2018 15:33:04
We appear to have 2 trialists playing in the under 23s game today V Huddersfield, along with McKay who has already scored. Are they trialing for the U23s or for the First Team I wonder?

The deal is for him to job share with Murphy on his contract?

15 Mar 2018 09:48:09
We don't need any more players the wrong side of 30 on high wages and long contracts. As good as Fox has been at CB this season, he's ultimately playing for a contract to see him through to retirement so there's no guarantee his form will continue after he's signed on the dotted line, I would personally let him go and find another CB. That said I don't believe Dawson is the answer, he's 34 and IMO opinion hasn't been great for Hull for a couple of seasons now and is only going to decline further. Let's continue to get fresh blood in to the club who can take us forward.

15 Mar 2018 15:39:54
Took a punt on the fact he's never been relegated as a manager.
That's a good enough stat probably for the board?

Agree0 1Disagree

16 Mar 2018 10:41:27
It looks like a few on here would like to see Dawson back. I think he would be a good addition to the squad but ONLY if he is given a ONE year contract.
I doubt he would come with that offer but we will be in a much better place to bargain at the end of the season.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Mar 2018 07:09:08
Can't believe we're even considering Dawson, how many other 34 year old pros will be out there with no club at the end of the season, why not get them all in, surely there has to be more ambition than that. If you think the Dawsons of this world are going to get us to the premiership you're delusional. Maybe nostalgia is taking over again, get an ex red back, it'll be great. Have we not learnt our lesson, move on, move forward, have some actually ambition.

Agree2 2Disagree

17 Mar 2018 08:09:26
Gazza the goalposts have been moved by the owners,who want promotion to the premier asap.
The building a young team idea has gone out the window now.
It's bring seasoned pros even if it's just for one season and try to get there that way.

Agree0 1Disagree

17 Mar 2018 17:11:56
All I'm saying is players at Dawsons level aren't going to get us there. Have a look at Hulls defensive record this season.

AK knows exactly what he is doing. The priority with our team sliding down the table due to the huge number of goals conceded was to tighten up at the back. He's done that with three new players and one previously derided senior pro. That square at the back of Fig, Fox, Colback and Watson has performed brilliantly in

(a) being a settled four over the last six games
(b) cut out many, but not all, mistakes
(c) become a vocal engine room driving the whole team.

Karanka was a world class defender and it shows in his decision making in bringing in Fig and moving Fox across. We can delve through the archives on here to find those who questioned that but they've been firmly silenced. There's creativity in the middle too but obviously we need a striker.

Everyone involved with the club knows this so AK has been very clever in that he has tightened up the back and sent us on a morale boosting unbeaten run. We're safe now and these unspectacular 0-0 games are helping to improve confidence for next season hugely.

I'm delighted in the way we've turned from being a team that everyone was dying to play and bully, to one that nobody wants to face because we're tough to break down, have a giant (in stature and ability) of a goalkeeper and can, sometimes, hit the goal trail. Praise today for Matty Cash. Knocked over nearly as much as Tomlin but never once stayed down and always fighting for the second ball. COYR!

Great post hog. One thing I would add is the addition of velios up front removing brereton, Ben has pace but has no ariel attributes, poor decision making etc. Lee Tomlinso is crying out for a clever more streetwise stiker to feed to and off. Murphy looks wooden and unfit so velios to me fits the bill.
So pleased for Fox, we now have a keeper a captain, tenacity and move the ball quicker. Real positive steps!!!

12 Mar 2018 14:22:57
Rutland. I'm in complete agreement about Vellios. I'm sure he's got something to offer and if only he'd scored a couple in the limited time he's had on the pitch he'd be starting. Having said that the goal against Hull in the cup was well taken and If BB had passed to him with 5 minutes to go at Norwich he'd almost certainly have scored the winner. Oh wait. Perhaps that's why BB DIDN'T pass to him. No, just kidding. Anyway we're safe and I think AK can rotate Ben, Murph and The Apostle for the last 9 games. I'm sure there's another 5 star goal-fest in one of these last few games.

Went to the Derby game and was pleasantly surprised.
First game of the Aitor era and it was a far cry from anything I’ve seen from us in the last decade.
We were so solid in the midfield to the point that it covered for the limitations of what is a makeshift defence.
Nothing against the back four, they have put in a shift, but only Figueiredo will be anywhere near the starting back line next year.
Was slightly disheartened by the signing of Watson and Colback because of their ages, but there is clearly a gulf in class when compared to our developing youngest.

Would like to see us get to 60 points but probably 55-58 more likely

Yep 👍 I agree. albeit I reckon it was the best left back In the world ever who spotted that fox was no left back but could hold his own at centre back.

Agree5 0Disagree

12 Mar 2018 22:03:22
I'd forgotten Psycho had Fox in the centre, 2star. Funny that the world's greatest left back and a Galactico left-sided centre half saw him there, but a Cheese connoisseur and a baker boy put him back out on the left.

13 Mar 2018 20:39:41
Your two thumbs down will be FF79 and Skegsjay who are getting very bitter and picky in their old age. They like many have forgotten when we last had a decent manager who is trying to do the best for our club before self interest because he has an absolute faith in his own ability which is why he is getting a tune out of the good pro's he has acquired and retained?
Onward and Upward

Agree3 2Disagree

13 Mar 2018 21:19:01
Red that's not on.
Said my piece and what makes you right anyway.
So far we have sacked a manager with a 40%win record and replaced him with one who has a 25% win record.
So that's why I'm not going overboard about a manager winning three out of twelve.
Simples as skeggs would say

Agree0 2Disagree

13 Mar 2018 21:32:30

Aitor is not behond having decisions questioned, and nor should he be, but if you are going to make win ratio's it would be only fair to compare both their first games at the club, I'm pretty sure Warburton did not have a 40% win rate in his first games when joining Forest.

Agree3 0Disagree

13 Mar 2018 21:44:12
Well Robbo let's see after 37 games who has the best win ratio?
He's played 12 already so 25 to go and in that time will have had two transfer windows.
So would you agree no excuse if there's no improvement?

Agree0 5Disagree

14 Mar 2018 12:48:17

What am I wrong about with my post?
1.The thumbs down were not you and Skegs or
2. Karanka is not a decent manager doing his best for the club?

By the way I'll settle for him achieving the 48% win ratio he got a Boro which is the relevant stat in your nonsense!

Agree3 0Disagree

14 Mar 2018 13:23:33
46.8% actually red.
I'll let you know when I put a thumbs down in future,I'm not interested in thumbs up or down and just saying I don't like a certain brand of football played by a lot of managers nowadays Karanka being one of them.
Prefer managers to be versatile in their play not one dimensional.

Agree0 2Disagree

14 Mar 2018 19:21:22
Like the versatile Montainier?

14 Mar 2018 19:27:10
Ff you say a brand of football that you don’t like but what about warbo’s tactics or lack of them?your saying you was happy playing tippy tappy possession football in our own half?this to me doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.warbos football was shocking at times and some of the most boring.whilst warbo was here as were were no1 for the most passes in our own half!
God I love that sort of football!

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Mar 2018 21:43:35
Forest need to walk before they can run after the nightmares of WMD and Fawaz dismantling the club.
You will be very happy with the winning football under AK next season as he replicates his Boro promotion season scoring 60+ goals and a positive goal difference of 30+!
Cheer up and get behind our leader Victor?

Agree4 0Disagree

11 Mar 2018 21:48:31
We look like a different animal now under karanka . Players put a proper shift into today. and soon the 1-0 wins will roll in ☺. you reds 👍.
