Hopefully Karanka has seen that Darikwa and Benny are the weak links at full back in the first two outings. If we are to improve them it is surely ta ta benny and ta ta darikwa

2star

1.) 11 Aug 2018 01:01:15
Weak link if any has been not been capatilising on our chances and dominance. Darikwa i agree has been our worst player, hesitant and gives the ball away. But benny is solid as he is always. Say ta ta to our player of the season last season have a word.


2.) 11 Aug 2018 04:38:14
Dont get why you are so down on Osborn. Terrific little player wherever he plays.


3.) 11 Aug 2018 07:51:32
Benny is no leftback. Always gives it his all but falls over too much and makes poor decisions. He was runing back to the goal line instead of attacking the danger when wba scored. Darikwa just not a rightback either. When you play 3 5 2 you might get away with these 2 but in a back four not a chance. Why is Robinson not playing???.


4.) 11 Aug 2018 08:15:37
Spot on Rutland, Osborn puts in a shift but he isn't a left back, he runs round like a little terrier snapping at people's heals but all to often gets found out of position. Is the old debate around, what position is his position? Most people will say attacking mid but as you will see as the season goes on when the Portuguese lads start to gel, he ain't much good at that either. Work rate 110%, substance very much lacking.


5.) 11 Aug 2018 08:46:47
Shows how dreadful we were last season for Osborn to win player of the season. Excellent point made about not taking chances. however , all successful teams need to also defend narrow leads which we are incapable of doing. I’m not sure what game you are watching if you can’t see That Osborn and darikwa are the weak links at full back, which doesn’t make Osborn a bad player by the way , it just means he’s no fullback. Whether there is a place for hi. In the team elsewhere nowadays is a seperate debate altogether. Like Brereton and Worral we may find benny is only going to be third choice this season.


6.) 11 Aug 2018 11:24:23
Not sure all the criticism of the full backs is warranted to be honest after just two games against two sides that have the potential to finish in the top 6 all players need a number of games under their belt before they hit top form


7.) 11 Aug 2018 12:09:28
Redmarsh - he played at lb for much of last season and he hasn't adapted to the position through the summer, still the same frailties.


8.) 11 Aug 2018 14:05:56
Far too much nonsense has been going on over the last 2-3 years regarding Benny. He's one of our best players, but I guess these people just don't want to give up.


9.) 11 Aug 2018 14:46:15
Well bsered this will be the season where both veiws are put to the sword - we really will find out if Osborn is the player we think he is now we have some better ones than before .


 

 

07 Aug 2018 22:29:49
Get rid of lolley, darikwa and Osborn and we’ve got a team. Shows how far we’ve come for lolley to look so poor. Some of the old frailties still there.

2star

1.) 08 Aug 2018 00:34:31
What are you talking about lol that was a fantastic performance from everyone


2.) 08 Aug 2018 06:18:05
Lolly one of our better players, find it strange you would say that and Osborne has linked up very well with the Portuguese lads. In fact everybody seems to have raised their game. I wanted to get rid of Guedioura last season, look at him now!


3.) 08 Aug 2018 06:36:50
Lolley was fantastic, he just looked like he was lacking confidence in front of goal. I can understand however why AK wants another right back, he gave the ball away a lot. He's good on the counter attack but that's about it.


4.) 08 Aug 2018 06:55:52
Lolley played well. Agree about the right back though.


5.) 08 Aug 2018 07:37:30
Seriously need new right back! Why we let lichaj go and keep him is beyond me, good overall performance let down by darikwa. Gave the ball away to many times and can't make a decision when on the ball also afraid to take players on


6.) 08 Aug 2018 08:12:25
Our full backs looked like our weakest areas but we covered well. Darikwa just seemed to lose his head and composure.


7.) 08 Aug 2018 08:48:57
To me Darikwa just looks really nervous when the ball comes to him, and it makes me nervous watching him. I feel like he's going to give the ball away every time he gets it.


8.) 08 Aug 2018 09:01:20
I have to say I was very impressed with the performance last night,the result was unfair on us.
When was the last time forest played football with intent?
The results will come if we continue to play like that :)


9.) 08 Aug 2018 11:17:59
Spot on 2star. Those 2 as fullbacks simply woefull


10.) 08 Aug 2018 14:26:16
We showed signs of improvement over last season nice to see players able to dribble the ball movement looked after only problem is same problem as last year can't defend crosses and scoring goals we had enough chance to be 3 up by half him


11.) 08 Aug 2018 15:05:09
Byram will be our right back soon and Robinson will be left back if karanka continues with 4 at back. If not then back 3 of Dawson fig fox


12.) 08 Aug 2018 20:55:36
Lolley lacked the ability to be effective in the final third four times last night . Caught in 3 minds and failed to make the right call in very strong positions.


 

 

13 Jun 2018 23:11:54
Outgoings absolutely inevitable to fund the incomings.
Osborn, Worrall, clough, Walker grant, McKay, vellios, Cummings will all be sacrificed - maybe more.

I think we will keep Brereton and Yates

2star

1.) 14 Jun 2018 07:22:12
All be sacrificed?? 😂 I don’t generally like to knock players but that’s no great loss??? I would like to have seen more of Clough though


2.) 14 Jun 2018 08:11:57
Keep Worrall to learn from Dawson and AK,sell the rest imo


3.) 14 Jun 2018 08:50:59
Want to see more of Cummings and why get rid of Grant? He was brilliant at Notts and hasn't had a chance yet!


4.) 14 Jun 2018 09:52:03
I would like to keep Osborn and Worrall as well as Brereton and Yates. The others can go as soon as!!


5.) 14 Jun 2018 12:37:26
Worrall is a must keep!

Everything a C half should be and a future England captain. No brainer because he can step in at any point and do a very solid job.He always puts his body on the line and fights for the team.

How many of our young homegrown players can you say that about?

Osbourne, Worrall, cash and that's about it currently.

Certainly not BB! If we got a 10 million offer for BB I'd take it in a heartbeat. Don't think there is much chance of that happening after squandering his chances last season and learning the art of playing at swan lake.


I'd try to hang on to those three and strip the rest to bare bones to pay for the incoming new first team.

Be ruthless and get rid of the young players who have been out on loan perhaps with the exception of Walker who looks lively and has great ties to the club.
Grant not good enough! Would think about keeping Yates if he shows massive progress in pre season.
This season is about getting to the Prem and we need to go all out with all resources or we will fail!


We know who the good players are!

Smith (back up)

Lichaj
Figs
Dawson
Worrall
Lolley
Cash
Watson (just about)
Osbourne
Bridcutt

Guediora if he can recapture his form because let's not forget he'd been out for about 2 years prior to rejoining.
Looked nothing like the player of old but I think he deserves a chance because of his passion and physicality. He knows how to control a game late on.

And that's about it apart from a few squad players.

That's 11 players so we need another 11 to be top three material.

We need two strikers!
Two wingers
A left back
Two centre midfield
A first choice goalkeeper

As far as I'm concerned the rest of the players can leave or be prepared to fight for a chance on the bench.

Sell Mance, Murphy, Darikwa, Mckay, Brereton, Traore, Vellios, Clough, Cummings.

I make that about 18 million if you get 10M for Brereton.

Loan out or release Ward, Kapino, Evtimov, Henderson, Fuentes, Bouch, Lam, Ariyibi.
With the exception of Ward (who I really like) they have been proven not good enough.


6.) 14 Jun 2018 13:18:24
And before I get called out for saying Lichaj is good please remember that "good" does not mean skilful?

Good, to me, is a player who consistently performs to a high level everytime he is picked, no matter if they have been playing regularly or not.

If they are a good pro and fabulous ambassador then they should be cherished not shown the door.

Tomlin is a good player but I wouldn't sign him. Why? Because you just don't know what you're going to get. Level of performance should not depend on the mood he turns up in or how many pies got smashed in the pub with the lads.

All I know is that there is nothing wrong with the clubs money on wage day! Why should the players performance be any less consistent?


7.) 14 Jun 2018 13:45:05
Anything else you'd like to add no22😦


8.) 14 Jun 2018 14:14:43
Agree with that no 22 tomlin has got an attitude problem.
Plus a pie and chips one


9.) 14 Jun 2018 17:11:57
How do we know what any players attitude is like?


10.) 14 Jun 2018 17:12:30
Hope we don't sign any more players with an altitude problem😲


11.) 14 Jun 2018 18:57:22

It shows if you watch.

13.) 14 Jun 2018 21:41:42

Karanka rates him so get used to watching him.


14.) 14 Jun 2018 23:04:02
Our best players were fat lads who had no issues with their fitness despite their build.As for attitude they all had a winning attitude which raised everyone else's game!


 

 

10 Mar 2018 18:42:29
Armand Traore injured, Tyler walker not in squad at Bolton, clough warning the bench at Bolton and Mills not in the Barnsley team . Two words to say to AK. well done!

2star

1.) 10 Mar 2018 21:38:58
The amazing thing is that there are Forest fans who still rate them? But then they are still in the Warbo camp?
I still think Wing Nut will come good for the money we paid once we have a competitive team next season?
Agreed well done AK


2.) 10 Mar 2018 22:16:13
Ear Ear !
CARLO


3.) 10 Mar 2018 22:26:24
I with you on that Red. Still think Clough is a good player but never given a run of games under Warbo especially in the Tomlin/Dowell role.Another player Warbo used to like playing out of position.


4.) 10 Mar 2018 22:33:04
By wing nut you mean ZC ?


5.) 10 Mar 2018 22:57:09
Big ears will look better alongside a big noddy?😉


6.) 11 Mar 2018 01:08:28
Agree on Clough like many players he was played out of position dropped after times he played well and lost confidence under MW. Last season he was quality when he came in and scored some important goals if he can get come back in summer to a confident squad with better and wiser players and a good captain like Watson to help guide him he can still come good as is still young and if Tomlin doesn’t join us once Dowell leaves he could get his chance to shine next season in the number 10 role.
Still think Walker may have a future if he can put some muscle on as looked ok in the odd games but every season he has failed to improve since he first stepped up to first team it looks more like his level may be league 1/2 but still think we could give him another few seasons to see before writing him off completely. Mills was well past it and Traoure was inconsistent and trouble. Glad they are gone. Hope AK shifts a few more (Hobbs, Vaughan, Bouchalakis, Ward and Traoure permanently and even maybe McKay and Manchienne) in summer.


7.) 11 Mar 2018 01:49:52
Murphy 79?


8.) 11 Mar 2018 08:51:16
Bouchalakis ! I forgot about him! Yes bye mancienne for me too.


9.) 11 Mar 2018 12:36:27
Tyler Walker is the best finisher we have and would even be a good option today in my opinion (better than Murphy on current form).

If we can get £2M back for Clough great. Clough is decent but we need players capable of staying with us and growing if we are promoted and I doubt he is that level.


10.) 11 Mar 2018 17:42:40
Shame we didn't have sometrhing extra in attack. Vellios is NOT the answer. Sorry but it is the truth


 

 

10 Jan 2018 20:33:58
Dowell staying.
Good news ?

2star

1.) 10 Jan 2018 20:49:03
If true yeah, could do with the extra talent and firepower for the remainder of the season if possible


2.) 10 Jan 2018 20:51:55
I'd say so yes. The few posters that complained He's keeping Clough out of the team may disagree but Sunday proved they can both start even though Clough looked lost on the left.


3.) 10 Jan 2018 20:58:49
What's the question?


4.) 10 Jan 2018 21:05:27
Imo great news but if he's not performing Clough and Osbourne can do his role as attacking midfielder probably Cashy as well. That,in my book,is good competition and should the lad on his toes!


5.) 10 Jan 2018 21:05:45
My question is Gazza does everyone think this is good news ? I know some think KD has limited progression of clough etc.


6.) 10 Jan 2018 21:45:41
As long as he learns that his team mates tend to play in the same colour as he does and not the oppositions colours.


7.) 10 Jan 2018 21:59:21
Clough not good enough at the mo.
Not seen him have a good game since he’s been here. Was the star at Bolton but out of his depth at Forest.


8.) 11 Jan 2018 01:43:36
Clough did ok on Sunday on left but he hasn’t played enough so his touch was heavy, give him some more game time to sharpen up. I think him and Dowell behind a striker (Brereton being my choice though Murphy too) can work but can always push Osbourn up to left attack and bring Bridcutt in. Good news we have Dowell for rest of season as he has movement and vision others don’t, Cash, Oz and Bridcutt are all work horses and rely on energy but Dowell pulls defends, creates space and plays clever balls that split defence and we don’t really have others who can do that as consistently or as well.


9.) 11 Jan 2018 07:38:40
Clough is an odd one, when I used to see him play for Bolton I was very impressed and believed he belonged at a higher level. However I've not got that opinion of him since he's been at Forest. He has had a good crack at the whip pre KD and didn't show too much. Hopefully he'll kick on under AK. I think it's a confidence thing with him, he really needs to back himself more.


10.) 11 Jan 2018 07:54:54
I don’t doubt that Kieran Dowell is a fantastic player with great technical ability but we have Zach Clough. Clough showed glimpses of what he could do on Sunday, drifting in from the wing and carrying the ball up the pitch. I’d say karanka needs to give clough a chance and if he doesn’t perform then we have Dowell to fall back on.


11.) 11 Jan 2018 10:38:32
Clough needs to do an Osborn: put on muscle, don't get pushed off the ball, increase pace and learn to tackle, and get back to help defenders. Then he might get into the starting XI.


12.) 11 Jan 2018 11:55:21
Osborn muscle?
You wouldn't want to bump into him down a dark alley? He could get trod on.
Seen more muscle on a chicken leg.😀😀😀


13.) 11 Jan 2018 11:53:35
Friends who are Everton fans want him back, I've told them he's not ready for the Prem. Finishing the season for us will give him a good grounding, getting on the bench and first team minutes at Everton is up to him. Looks like he is still 'growing up' to me and hopefully he plays even better for Forest, for the rest of the season.


14.) 11 Jan 2018 21:41:47
The simple reason for Clough not playing is in fact Kieron Dowell. He’s so good that he’s keeping another good player out of the team.

Clough scored four goals in about 12 appearances last season, assisted with a few too.

Great that we’ve got Dowelll unto the end of the season though. Lucky to have him.

Nothing wrong with walker scoring a hat trick.


 

 

12 Aug 2018 10:33:45
Really enjoyed the last ten mins of the game. Once we had benny and Matty in there favoured positions we matched our technical ability with the key attributes to win against well drilled teams : courage, energy, Heart and passion. Reading had no answer for it, we badly needed to up tempo and get in amongst them yesterday.
Team for next home game should pick itself now
Pants
Darikwa, Fox, Figueiredo, Robinson
cash Colback guedioura, Osborn
Soudani Grabban or Murphy.

Not sure what the team away will be as I’m sure it will be something different away from home.

2star

1.) 12 Aug 2018 11:39:46
I wasn't able to get the game and I follow didn't work at all for me did the formation change with subs as we had 2 strikers on


2.) 12 Aug 2018 11:44:37
No way Dias and Carvalho will be left out.


3.) 12 Aug 2018 12:01:47
It picks itself yet you can’t pick the strikers?lol.


4.) 12 Aug 2018 13:05:19
3 games in a week was probably too much too soon for the Portuguese lads settling into championship life.Good quality squad will be such an advantage this season.Nice to see Soudani was more than capable of slotting into same role as Carvalho


5.) 12 Aug 2018 13:14:13
Unless you saw a different game perks they didn’t appear to show the same ability to influence the game as cash did yesterday. We should play the players who can influence the game?


6.) 12 Aug 2018 13:46:14
Exactly what I've been trying to say but like banging your head against a brick wall having a opinion lol 😁


7.) 12 Aug 2018 13:47:20
Cash is trong willing and very direct. Something the portuguese lads do not have at moment. Michael helfe looks quality so he will slot in nicely. So pleased for fox as he has had so much stick in the past. Benny must operate one left flank not as fullback. Great result.


8.) 12 Aug 2018 13:59:04
Reading were well organized yesterday and fresh after 8 days rest plus their big Irish lad Mehler number 8 as defensive midfield anchor man had a superb game and completely nullified our playmakers particularly Carvalho who looked knackered. Reading deserved a draw until the goal and the fresh legs Sondani and Cash came on.


9.) 12 Aug 2018 14:24:10
A very good assessment stokey - we shouldn’t be afraid to leave them out if they are tired or out of sorts. They were the wrong athlete for the course yesterday


10.) 12 Aug 2018 14:29:20
Skeg, at the minute they offer no more than clough and Mckay could offer at this stage of the season. Be interesting to see how they cope in the winter months which is when McKay disappeared. Early days yet bought mate and there is defo good players in there. I still think we’ve made a mistake selling McKay - on his day he had as much to offer as anyone we’ve signed at a fraction of the cost. Great day yesterday though, treated the kids to a new shirt after the game and myself to a retro European cup shirt - the replica of the one worn in Madrid. Great buzz around the ground skeg - even after the game the shop was rammed until 6pm.


11.) 12 Aug 2018 14:59:42
Nice one 2 star I've been looking for a retro shirt myself


12.) 12 Aug 2018 15:05:01
2star i agree about McKay could played a part and helped the squad as he is still learning, but has the basis to work on with the right coaching, both mentally and footballing wise he would improve immensely. I do however feel the Portuguese players at this moment in time have more technical skill and creativity than either Clough or McKay.


13.) 12 Aug 2018 16:03:09
What a nice position to be in - debating whether the new lads should start given the performances of Osborn (once he moved to left mid) and cash right mid. I’d have taken that a few months ago wouldn’t you?


14.) 12 Aug 2018 16:14:08
Yes i would, without a doubt.


15.) 12 Aug 2018 16:40:48
Sorry but McKay went missing for mw and ak and in Scotland as we were warned how many chances does he need at 23 I would like to think he doesn't need to learn to much just practice what he has been learning for the last 10 odd years


16.) 12 Aug 2018 17:15:27
Yes 2 star your right. Different game to you.I went to the game Stokey went to.


17.) 12 Aug 2018 17:20:23
Red James very few players ever have no need to keep learning, when you have the talent McKay has you need to get his mind straight then he will be just the player we need.


18.) 12 Aug 2018 17:25:45
Stokey appears to say the Portuguese players did sweet FA yesterday as they were nullified by the opposition perks? Anyway football should divide opinion shouldn’t it?


19.) 12 Aug 2018 18:37:25
No 2star if your perks Sutton or redinexille you after agree with them the fact is Mr ak as had all summer to work is best players out and I don't think he's playing is best players in fact I don't think he knows who they are let's hope he gets things sorted else it could be a long very disappointing season again


20.) 12 Aug 2018 19:24:08
Skeg , I agree with you after yesterday’s game. I think he got it right against WBA and we should have been out of sight before they scored. It’ll be good to see how well Robinson and Osborn do together. One thing I will say for AK is I don’t think he’ll favour Dias etc, I think he will play whoever puts in the best performances. I wouldn’t mind seeing darikwa given a bash in right mid in front of Byram too?


21.) 12 Aug 2018 19:31:22
So because they were a bit leggy from a 3 game week in a new league, new country etc against a team trying to stop them playing we should drop them for Cash and Osborn. Sorry not for me. By the way Skeg unbeaten duck.


22.) 12 Aug 2018 20:10:33
Perks13 i thought the idea of having a squad was for players to be given a chance to shine when players are injured, suspended, out of form, or knackered.


23.) 12 Aug 2018 22:04:02
McKay is not good enough to play 46 Championship games. For all his talent he is easy to take out the game, cannot tackle and does not track back.

The Portuguese lads are better coached and in the tradition of the national team work harder off the ball than most young British talent.

Already teams are setting up to stop them playing but because they are good players out of possession we look more secure at the back and will only get better with the new players and as these lads settle in.

A £1m profit is good business for a bit part player. Let's move on?


24.) 12 Aug 2018 21:52:11
No all perks Sutton and redinexille are interested in is being proven right by having ak as a manager me personally would of expected a better manager to have got is best 11 sorted by now that as happened also your right stages he's got a whole squad to choose from which no other manager as had for a long time I just don't think he knows how to use them to me he's trying to win this league buying players wether he's bought the best players and spent the money wisely I've not seen yet the players that have scored and won us the points have cost us next to nothing soudani should be playing every game if karanka wants players who play for the shirt he's the 1 100 percent every game and perks we should be on 9 points with the money karanka as had warbo would be given the chance 😁😂


25.) 12 Aug 2018 22:14:06
I agree it is stag? So I'm saying they were knackered.They now have a week without a league game.No problem.Its up to Karanka and his staff to assess fitness levels/fatigue and make changes where necessary. He did,subs made the impact required to get the win.Would Cash now replace Dias in the starting lineup, no.Would Soudani replace Carvalho or Grabban in a 4231,no not for me.Maybe paired with Grabban if 2 up top.In any case I expect Murphy will be the lone striker away to Wigan.


26.) 12 Aug 2018 22:44:47
We will see red but not seen anything like what karanka is trying to copy at wolves yet maybe it's not the players 😁


27.) 12 Aug 2018 23:45:05
Skeg correct me if I'm wrong but the same team has been selected for the last 2 games which may suggest he thinks this is his best 11.


28.) 13 Aug 2018 05:39:04
Perks13 you are probably right about Murphy but when Soudani and Cash came on they made a impact as you say, they won the game for us so deserve to play against Wigan with the team in the positions they were when they made their impact. What a impact those knackered players could have off the bench, if needed.


29.) 13 Aug 2018 07:10:06
Skeg 2 star.
Stop talking out of your blow holes.
We won. WE WON.
Stop griping and pretending to be managers.
Warbo has gone he's a charlatan. I understand it's difficult to be fan boys. Please get help to over him. It's embarrassing.


30.) 13 Aug 2018 12:06:36
Fbb karankas love child forget warbo karanka is the man in charge and been given a whole lot of money to spend more than any other manager in forests history all I'm saying his he's not living up to expectations yet what's wrong with that it's my opinion and sticking by it till he proves me wrong simples 😁

FF79, have a good one mate. My view is the Portuguese signings are no better than what we have. Once Osborn moved to left mid and cash came on we looked the part. Diaz was doing a McKay act today. Just my view mate, others will see another game. Osborn is no left back but he’s good in left mid. Carvalho no better than clough today. Colback was immense today no way we’d tick without him. Guiedioura a bit random compared to Tuesday. Fox and Figueiredo 10 out of 10.

I also think the Portuguese lads will tire during season especially in winter.
I'd bring tomlin back on loan.
Short time he played with us he showed quality

Are biggest problem again will be hitting goals I would play soudani over grabban any day of the week and hate this chopping and changing I remember other managers being called for it it's not like they haven't had time to get a starting 11 sorted that should be playing same team every week bar injuries sorry I don't care about what others say you can all do one lol but his managerial skills are crap

I don't even think your mate ff would agree with you this time pal.

2star thought it was just me mate the lio number 10 spent all Tuesday night giving the ball away , and pretty much the same thing today needs to realise little flicks aren’t enough in this league and quickly

Unchanged team? Grabban had a decent game.


6.) 11 Aug 2018 20:53:12
Yeah let's moan and talk about poor performances. We won for gods sake, put a smile on ya face. I'll take a steady performance and 3 points over playing well for a point like Tuesday night. I really don't get some folk on here

The new signings have been together just over a month. Prime example was on Tuesday night,a few stray passes here and there. and they still played well, every manager will still be looking for their best 11 even 5 or 6 games in. no one has a magic wand this early in. I'm still very optimistic for this coming season. watch us go!!!

No Stevie - not impressed with those guys at all


9.) 11 Aug 2018 21:28:54
I'm just saying he's not doing anything at the minute that proves to me that he his a good manager and I don't really give a crap who agrees or disagrees with me it's my opinion and there's only one person that can change that and he ain't doing a very good job of that yet we have probably the best midfield in the championship that should be able to score more than the strikers there balls in are crap we have a striker that can score 20 plus in this league 0-0 somethings wrong are midfield should be running riot and are best chance of goals soudani been on bench last 2 games and first game not even on it sort it kranky

I really don’t know what some fans expect?
Some are moaning even though we won!
It’s the 3rd game and yet some critique like they are experts instead of fans.
Grabban didn’t do this Colback did that!
If you don’t like what you support another team.
You are more than entitled to voice opinions but we won ffs!
So to all you meldrews out there DO ONE.

Well bsered this will be the season where both veiws are put to the sword - we really will find out if Osborn is the player we think he is now we have some better ones than before .

Shows how dreadful we were last season for Osborn to win player of the season. Excellent point made about not taking chances. however , all successful teams need to also defend narrow leads which we are incapable of doing. I’m not sure what game you are watching if you can’t see That Osborn and darikwa are the weak links at full back, which doesn’t make Osborn a bad player by the way , it just means he’s no fullback. Whether there is a place for hi. In the team elsewhere nowadays is a seperate debate altogether. Like Brereton and Worral we may find benny is only going to be third choice this season.

Derby won’t be as bad as you hope red. Think we need to get our own show on the road before we gloat too much about them

Skeg , compared to WBA we were out of sorts against reading - tiredness, well drilled reading team , probably a bit of both. Credit to the manager though mate he made changes that altered the cause of the game.

It does tickle me though ! A week ago the word on here was that Derby were in for a long season because the struggled to edge past a very poor reading side !

Keep yer posts coming mate - in enjoy reading the majority of stuff on here TBH.
