What will the new manager do with Dias, Clough, Goncalves, Soudani and pantillimon . A lot of skeletons in the cupboard aren’t there?


1.) 11 Jan 2019 22:05:31
Shouldn't be if ak was as good most say why are 3 in that list his signings



31 Dec 2018 17:45:23
Since 14/15 season to present day, in the period 20th December to 02 jan our stats are:
Played 16
Won 0
Drawn 7
Lost 9

These stats have occurred under 5 managers, Pearce, freedman, montanier, warburton and Karanka . Can it be possible that the managers are always to blame. These are disgraceful stats and the variety of players who have been at the club achieving them clearly couldn’t care less about working hard at a time of year where outcomes of games very much define the overall outcome of the season.

These stats have made me furious and I doubt whether me and the rest of the family will renew our 5 season tickets next season. What’s the point when players can’t be arsed to show up at a point of the season where workmanlike and industrious performances ned to be given.

Every year our season unravels at Xmas and we get sucked into a relegation battle . Forest , get a grip, sort it out - it’s disgraceful and pathetic.


1.) 31 Dec 2018 18:52:06
2star, most of us think that we can do, and know better than any manager we have had because of the poor results every season, so we air our views where we can but as long as your able to go to games you should go and give your support.

Not because you are told to, but because the club needs you, and i really believe in the near future we will come good.

2.) 01 Jan 2019 09:41:40
LC Then practice what you preach and get behind the team and the manager?
You have to have belief to be successful at anything otherwise you end up being a loser.

3.) 01 Jan 2019 10:08:05
RIE, I get behind the team at every game i go to then say how i see on here.

4.) 01 Jan 2019 11:43:03
Well Lansbury always took Xmas off, who do we blame this year? Dawson?

5.) 01 Jan 2019 12:18:16
I blame RIE.

6.) 01 Jan 2019 12:23:13
Scouse, I blame the players that play in the games personally. I recognise an alternative view is to say it’s the manager , but the same outcomes under 5 different. Managers? A bit odd in my opinion. December has been a complete disaster again and something needs to change . It’s just not good enough, I doubt whether anyone has such alarming stats as those .

Fawaz is trying to buy Charlton


1.) 12 Sep 2018 22:47:46
Knowing our luck he'll be succesfull and get them to the prem,🙄🙄

2.) 12 Sep 2018 23:26:25
Which one, bobby or jackie?

3.) 13 Sep 2018 00:08:29
I hope this isn’t true

4.) 13 Sep 2018 00:23:54
He shouldn’t be allowed to buy a bag of crisps in this country let alone another football club

5.) 13 Sep 2018 01:04:18
Why are you getting worried?

6.) 13 Sep 2018 07:36:11
For footballs sake (ffs) and would you want another set of fans to go through that?

7.) 13 Sep 2018 09:09:37
Usmanov-think that's how it's spell it is apparently interested in Charlton,can't see fawaw passing another fit and proper owner test.

8.) 13 Sep 2018 09:22:37
New job for King Billy on the cards😆

9.) 13 Sep 2018 13:21:59
Why is he coming back ,3rd time lucky!

10.) 13 Sep 2018 16:17:54
The Forest club shop has just had a major sales windfall. Fawaz and his Bank Balance were spotted sneaking out the service bay with boxes of Fawaz sponsored Forest shirts bound for The Valley as part payment for the club!



10 Aug 2018 22:59:13
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


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.


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.

2.) 15 May 2019 21:57:07
Perfect outcome all around for sure ff. sheep or not I’m very happy that cheating Leeds have not prospered .

3.) 15 May 2019 22:29:54
Lots of teams besides Leeds cheat. I only hope VAR starts to sort some of it out, but I'm in no way sure it will.



08 May 2019 20:07:38
To those old timers , our attendances were really strong this season . Am I right in saying that during the 80’s we struggled to break the 20k mark most weeks ? Why was that ? Were attendances at all footie games lower back then? What kind of attendances did we get late 70’s early 80’s?

If we were as good now as we were then I reckon we’d be getting 50k


1.) 08 May 2019 23:45:15
Attendances were pretty good in the eighties I thought,especially with cup runs,cant remember us struggling that often to break 20 k 77 to 80 we averaged about 32k,might have dropped to 25 in mid eighties.
When you compare the fans now just remember that we are giving a lot of tickets away to kids and under 25 for next to nothing,there wasnt those incentives about in those days

2.) 09 May 2019 09:48:36
In the late sentries and early eighties home attendances were pretty low compared to these days, over 22,000 was a good day, 27,000 was packed to the rafters!

3.) 09 May 2019 11:25:57
Well remember the days when we had been in Division 2 for a while and crowds had shrunk somewhat.
We could come out of the Outlaws Bar on Trent Bridge ( now The Southbank ) at 2.45 and amble or on occasions stagger a little down to the East Stand Car Park terraces in plenty of time.
When we went up 77/78 crowds got slowly bigger and put the tin hat on that one.

Remenber 45k plus against Liverpool on Boxing day in a one all draw as being particularly " snug "

4.) 09 May 2019 13:23:51
Remember that boxing day one creepy fans were around the track side as well official attendance was 47,218 but I reckon there was more like 50k
We averaged 32,500 that season and 30,500 the following season,it was expensive to go to all the cup matches and finals as well as a season ticket and I knew some fans that simply could not afford to go to every game with young families they had,so a lot of fans picked their games.



06 May 2019 08:44:22
Bit of a strange season really, a bit of negativity floating around which I can understand. In the end we were a good way of the playoffs yet only The villa game at home did we truly look outclassed. What is consistent is this is the same old forest. O Neil is spot on there, the football club really struggles to do the business for a full season.




04 May 2019 19:05:58
Well as I’d like to toast sol with a good hearty bowl of soup but I’m not in a soup mood.

Oh hang it all I’ll just have to settle for toasting Campbell with a few bottles of Sol!

Bottoms up! Laters sad pies !


1.) 04 May 2019 20:20:47
Oh and sorry of course DO ONE SADPIES !

2.) 05 May 2019 11:42:15
Its a big cheer from me



04 May 2019 16:52:37
Tata sadpies ! Into oblivion where you belong!

I’m not that convinced any of ours are great centre backs if I’m being honest . Dawson would be a cracking player in this division but he’s too old. Under whelmed by benalunatic too. Jack Hobbs was good too (a poor man’s John Terry) but alas another injury nightmare for forest. I’d be tempted to make some improvements to the defence but only if we can shift some players .

I feel the same about height as well, I think being 6’1 or above certainly helps with elements of playing that position . Perhaps more desirable than essential.

Red lipstick, I understand your frustration but AK was equally as inconsistent. It’s hard to say where we would be if he’d have stayed because many teams hit some form around Xmas and go on a good run. O’Neil dropped silly points against Rotherham and Blackburn but so did Ak against QPR and Preston. You could argue for and against in equal strength for both managers I think.
