Forest in for Jonnny Williams from Palace. Busy & inventive little midfielder. Good signing IMO. Ran rings round us for Ipswich last season.


1.) 19 Jul 2015 20:44:56
Agreed but need to free up some space first otherwise we are sacrificing a spot for GK, left back, DMF

2.) 20 Jul 2015 12:03:01
Don't need a dmf, have got Vaughan and mancienne. Really need a proven striker, left back and goal keeper.

3.) 20 Jul 2015 14:24:23
Vaughn & Mancienne aren't viable DMs though. If you go down that route your just replicating the losing formula from last season.

4.) 20 Jul 2015 15:41:44
Well said Cjay. DFM is a priority position. Vaughan and mancienne are not good enough and the reason we ended up playing so deep last season which ultimately ended up isolating the centre forward

5.) 20 Jul 2015 18:07:43
If Tesche stays we won't be bringing in a DFM. We will probably sign a versatile player who can cover LB and a striker. If we can't move people on then that will be your lot I'm afraid.

Rangers looking at Freedman as next manager: Source: Scottish red top


1.) 25 Feb 2015 13:37:52
Rangers cannot be "looking" for anyone as there are at least 3 groups of directors fighting for control of the club.

Mike Ashley will finally decide on who he wants at the end of the season once the others fail to match their bluster with cash and he gains complete control

2.) 25 Feb 2015 13:54:44
Billy Davies was also heavily linked with this job. Anyone who thinks things are bad at Forest in terms of how the club is run would think we are a model of stability and order in comparison. No manager with any pedigree will consider this job unless or until some stability is brought to the club. And no-one sees that happening in the short to medium term at least.

3.) 25 Feb 2015 14:35:23
Sign Dougie on a long term contract failing that Mark Warburton will be looking for work.

4.) 25 Feb 2015 16:53:40
dougie as already made that mistake with hjs move from palace to bolton i can't see him making it again.

5.) 25 Feb 2015 18:16:56
Sloppy reporting.
He's not even in betting.
This is made up rumour and never going to happen.

Karanka 1 Experts 0

Drink it in lads, he's here to stay. there's your statement, we're officially in the race.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 17:59:25
Great win. Just need home performances to improve.

2.) 06 Oct 2018 18:00:52
Cjay, YOU said AK choice of players were suicide. So YOU were one of the experts. 🤣

3.) 06 Oct 2018 18:19:43
Fantastic!!! Enjoy lads!!!🍺🍺🍺

4.) 06 Oct 2018 18:47:12
4 points better off now can ak deliver!!!!!!

5.) 06 Oct 2018 19:09:57
Im so pleased with the result and the performance but i stand by my original post on the subject.

There is no need to get all excited about the team when so much money has been spent yet untill today's game we were only 1 point better off than last season.

Long may we continue playing like we did today, and off course the result is a added bonus.

6.) 06 Oct 2018 19:13:37
I said 442 was suicide!

Need to get them facts straight.

7.) 06 Oct 2018 19:34:20
No, no you said a back four with Colback and Guedioura is suicide, that is as much about the players as the system. Please read your post again. 😁

8.) 06 Oct 2018 19:40:53
We have lost 1 game all season including cup games that is massive progression over last season.being hard to beat is what is the biggest improvement.we aren't pushovers anymore which we have been in previous seasons we fight to the end and even today we was still after another goal.

9.) 06 Oct 2018 19:43:22
Sorry you said a Midfield 4 with Colback and Guedioura is suicide.

10.) 06 Oct 2018 19:52:23
Blimey. .advice not to get too excited after a great win.
Does it really matter how much we have spent ?
Bearing in mind we have got rid off/loaned out nearly 20 players which needed replacing . Yes we have a couple of expensive buys but that doesn't guarantee success as we all know.
Dont care about last seasons points.
Points vary from season to season for promoted/relegated sides so irrelevant.
Im excited with the potential in the squad. There will be some more moved on in January and hopefully some additions but the squad is developing nicely.

11.) 06 Oct 2018 20:05:25
How about we all say well done forest and enjoy the league table for a couple of weeks now. I think most views expressed on here are mostly valid . We can all have the told you so moment can’t we? It’s fair to say we are making progress and had we have held out weds (which we should have) we’d be feeling very positive

12.) 06 Oct 2018 20:17:44
Cjay you were as silent as a mouse after the millwall game now your shouting from the rooftops at least were consistent lol, credit where credit is due criticism when it's due, one bad performance and you say it's too early to judge so why after one good performance can you judge and say he is hear to stay ? Surely has to work both ways



04 Oct 2018 09:55:58
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.


1.) 04 Oct 2018 10:17:35
Cjay wasn’t it u that used the phrase ‘impregnable ‘ at the back?

2.) 04 Oct 2018 10:28:57
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.

3.) 04 Oct 2018 10:31:39
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.

4.) 04 Oct 2018 10:54:27
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.

5.) 04 Oct 2018 11:12:13
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.

6.) 04 Oct 2018 11:36:38
20 million Euros Rutland. Which looks about 19 million heavy.

7.) 04 Oct 2018 14:40:43
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

8.) 04 Oct 2018 15:26:45
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.

9.) 04 Oct 2018 16:58:35
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.



23 Sep 2018 08:49:24
Lots of nonsense talked about lucky wins and adapting formations to teams that park the bus.

We won, two on the spin against sides who've played on the counter.

Take nothing for granted in this league, some of the results yesterday living proof you take every game at a time and do what it takes to win it.

It wasn't particularly fluent, but we we've been almost impenetrable at the back with this formation and scored goals.

Id worry more about entertainment value when we're sitting pretty at the top.


1.) 23 Sep 2018 11:04:34
Nonsense - indeed.

2.) 23 Sep 2018 12:40:08
Impenetrable at the back - how many clean sheets does that equate to?



20 Sep 2018 10:49:02
Good to see some humility fellas, Its progress when you reduce a side, used to coming here and pocketing three points, to absolutely nowt.

Plans coming together, probably gains further momentum with Grabban scoring, Carvalho running another show and Heffele, Fox and the screen of Pep and Colback looking almost inpenetrable.

Thats an AK performance in a nutshell, unpick the opposition, get the goal, bring em out and kill em off. Its going to be a slog of a season for anyone who didn't enjoy that for a nights entertainment.

Dont see us taking teams to the cleaners, but another masterclass Saturday and we're in this for the duration.


1.) 20 Sep 2018 12:15:54
Hence the reason why those early concession of goals had to stop for the plan to work - heff has been the differentiator in stopping us conceding early goals - it really was holding us back.
Regarding Carvalho he didn’t run the game at all Cjay, what you want to happen or foresee could happen is different to what actually happened. As I said last night he grew into the game and gave glimpses of his talent I think it’s very possible he could dictate games - it’s inaccuraye to say he did that last night but he did do 100% better than he has since the WBA game. A thumbs up from me for carvalho for making the improvements necessary for a player with whom we’ve put a lot of faith in by spending a club. Record 13 million on.

2.) 20 Sep 2018 15:39:20
Nice to see the back four looking a lot more stronger with fox and the heffa outstanding good to see him being vocal and waving his arms about dragging players forward we have been missing this for seasons well done to all

3.) 20 Sep 2018 16:24:18
Heffa is hilarious

4.) 20 Sep 2018 16:24:51
We have some older and wiser heads beginning to have an effect:
Pantilimon, Hefele, Guediora and Fox (who completely outjumped his 6feet four opponent last night) and Watson/Dawson when needed. Add to that the creative abilities of Carvalho and Osborn, and the speed and thrust of Janko, Cash, Dias and Lolley with Colback making Vaughan-like crunching tackles, and you can see the blend AK is aiming for. Calm heads on the pitch and a terrier like approach to everything by everybody, pushing up to pin the opposition down, is just what we have needed for so long! But there will be slips and blips no doubt. Cjay is right it's a 2 year process but if they continue to be so good to watch with a mid-week crowd of 26,000 pushing them on, this year could be at last our turning point.



17 Sep 2018 09:39:45
Good solid away point Saturday.

Good performance, better side, quality right back debutant, bossed the posession, outshot the opposition and generally looked like we've taken steps forward with our identity.

Without reading the post match reaction on here, what was it about that performance the experts found to bleat about?


1.) 17 Sep 2018 10:23:45
Definitely a good away performance cjay,defence looked solid for once so something to build on,
Need something different for the home games ,we have to get some service to grabban or Murphy,for all our possession we didn't get into the right areas for grabban to thrive,but a good away performance,6 points now required from the home games now.

2.) 17 Sep 2018 12:43:29
Pull the other one Cjay , you’ll have been all over it.

3.) 17 Sep 2018 13:05:15
I have decided for myself that the season starts Wednesday !didn’t get to wales but am looking forward to seeing the new right back who sounded impressive linking with cash , and hopefully the manager will keep the same team (injuries permitting) and we can at last get the wins rolling,despite what some might think on here I am not anti karanka but few can deny it has been a frustrating start

4.) 17 Sep 2018 13:23:10
The right back does look class Stevie,was really impressed with his all round game,big strong lad as well.
I'm same as you mate,done the hard bit getting an away point,now it's time to press on and get some wins,
More draws are no good,pees me off the sheep have lost three but are still four points ahead.

5.) 17 Sep 2018 13:57:06
Good to see some positivity Stevie. However, AK will keep rotating the front 4 to maintain the high tempo press he wants the team to play and keep them fresh.

I hope Geddy is up to a midweek game after coming back.

Carvalhos shown enough to suggest he'll be a top player when the team becomes more familiar with each other.

When the players around him can anticipate those clever runs into pockets of space & find him consistently, he'll have a bigger influence offensively.

He wants to play one touch football, that will only come good when it becomes second nature to those around him.

Lesser teams? Anyone beats anyone in this league. Stick to doing what were doing best & this season could turn out to be the one.

So far unpicking teams with ten men behind the ball has yielded plenty of points.

Neither Cummings or McKay were good enough mentally or physically to get it done consistently over a championship season.

Thankfully we don't accomodate lightweights at the club anymore.

Burke would walk back into the side.

He's got lightning pace, physicality, runs at players & he's ready made for the championship.

Absolute no brainer for the right money.

Warburtons stock has dipped well below Brentford.

They were fairly happy to let him go first time round, why would they come back for him now?

07 Oct 2018 14:24:18
Soudani, Dias, Goncalves, Lolley, Cash. They've all got pace.

Soudani is also cover up front.

Keeper maybe, but i'd be looking for a Tomlin type as cover for Carvalho personally.

Murphy looked decent today, definitely the better bet with his back to goal.

Grabbans a poacher.
