Rumorat half time that mcparland has walked.
It sure how true


1.) 30 Dec 2017 17:30:11
I heard he got a taxi.😀



15 Dec 2017 21:56:01
Think tomorrow we would benefit by bringing boukalkis in for Osborn and give Carayol a first start for McKay or Dowell?
Hopefully traore will be fit and Eric can move to his rightfull position along with manciene.
Murphy and walker should give Bristol something to think about and now Ben's off the mark for the season we can bring him on if needed.
A game not to give silly free kicks away in our own half with the areial goal threat from flint.
Quietly confident we can get a result,at least they're a team that play football which can suit us.


1.) 15 Dec 2017 23:22:02
Great theory FF79 so long as Mills is not starting? If so then giving away silly free kicks is a given and Mr Flint will prevail!

2.) 15 Dec 2017 23:45:52
I agree with most of what you say FF. i'd certainly adopt a defensive but swift counter attacking posture.Certainly,Eric needs to be in his best position,right back which means a recall to Traore to balance the team at left back. Mills and Worrall centre to combat their aerial threat,then cover with 2 defensive midfielders Bridcutt and either Vaughn or Bouchlakis probably Vaughn. I'd give Ward a start as his work ethic will wear them down then introduce pace down the flanks 2nd half with Carayol or Walker and McKay though it would be harsh to drop Walker after last week's excellent performance v Bolton. Then Murphy to start up top and Brereton to come on when the Irishman starts to tire. As for attacking midfielder behind the lone striker in a 4231 it's a toss up,in order of preference between Dowell, Osbourne or Clough. I await the team news tomorrow with great interest but we 'll need to work very very hard to even get a point,which would be excellant

3.) 16 Dec 2017 10:14:38
I think MW will keep the same team as last week and bring on Carayol for the last 30 mins in place of McKay. We may also see Brereton and Walker interchanged. We need Murphy to lead the line with weight and aggression today. I can't see Osborn being dropped or Clough in the side. To me Edser and Cash are better players than Clough anyway.

4.) 16 Dec 2017 14:31:39
Well mystic FF79 called the selection correctly except for Mills so the die is cast?
It will need to be another 5 goal thriller to get a result so COYR's

5.) 16 Dec 2017 15:59:41
Warbuton has listened to you ff79 its 2-0

6.) 17 Dec 2017 12:32:58
Leaving Benny Osborn out is always a risk - look at how well he played when he came on!

7.) 17 Dec 2017 21:12:37

I feel Osborn's ability to play more than one position has made Warburton over use him.

The lad has bags of energy, but he for me runs on autopilot some of the time and and needs a break.

Osborn also needs to be given a constant position, and developed to make the most of him.



02 Dec 2017 21:13:33
Sutton ff has been reading all the comments
Today we lost because the two most experienced players on the pitch made bad individual errors , Just when we were getting a foothold.
That's down to manciene and Vaughan who should know better not warbo,
A few managers have tried to get a tune out of manciene mills fox Vaughan Osborn and even Eric,they have all failed ,why does anyone expect warbo to get a tune out of them?
They are the problem too soft,they're not built for the championship,especially a scrap.
They will be replaced make no mistake,but you can't do that in one transfer window.


1.) 03 Dec 2017 00:31:00
Rubbish.if they are the problem why didn’t he see that last season when he was in charge and change it pre season?if that’s the case why does he continue to play those players when there is depth in the squad to change them?it all stinks of a man who isn’t up to the job.the problem is these players can’t play the tippy tappy rubbish that warbo wants them to play as they aren't those type of players which again he should of realised as he watches them day in day out!again highlighting his downfalls.

2.) 03 Dec 2017 07:01:37
As usual ff comes up with lame excuses. anyone would think he is actually related to the breadman.

3.) 03 Dec 2017 07:54:12
Those players couldn't play a different style under montanier or Brazil either,we nearly got relegated,remember?

4.) 03 Dec 2017 09:14:33
So Warbo brings in Cummings, McKay and Darikwa who are so much better???
McKay is excellent one game in six then goes back into hiss shell

5.) 03 Dec 2017 17:55:08
So are Cummings McKay and Darikwa better than Patterson,Jack Hunt and George Boyd who have worn and could/should still wear the Forest shirt had we been more savvy with our recruitment/ retention strategy?



23 Oct 2017 20:37:47
Well Eric has come out and said he wants a new contract.
He loves it here and is settled in Kirkby and his wife has her shop in Annesley.
He goes on to say every team has competition for places.
Then adds he doesn't know if he'll score every week,but will keep doing his thing and hopefully we'll get the wins.
Time to sit down with him mcparland.


1.) 23 Oct 2017 21:22:47
FF79, he said this a while back and still no new contract
Rumour also has it that he is happy signing on his existing terms (no pay rise)
It concerns me that a player like this is being left guessing

2.) 23 Oct 2017 21:55:21
It will be down to warbo if he stays or not.if warbo doesn’t want I’m no talks will happen.I wouldn’t hold your breath tho,

3.) 24 Oct 2017 09:32:43
Let's get rid of warbo instead

4.) 24 oct 2017 12:34:12
ff, dont fall out of your chair, in total agreement.
this needs sorting asap.

5.) 24 Oct 2017 13:42:10
Just playing devils advocate here, and I appreciate this won't go down well with some. My assessment of Eric would be he's a decent Championship full back, but I'm not sure he's worthy of the pedestal some of you have put him on. My main concern with this current form is it comes at a time when his contract is up. Haven't we seen this scenario play out many times before.

6.) 24 Oct 2017 14:16:22
Sorry fawaz you just baffle me,just like the real fawaz.
What needs sorting?
I don't know what you want from Warburton,You say he has no plan B
He's clueless
Has no man management skills
He's deluded.
But you don't want him sacked.
Now your in agreement with getting rid of him?
How do you intend to do that then?
Just asking

7.) 24 Oct 2017 15:00:22
Murdoch lichaj got player of the year last season and has been one of the most consistent players pver the last few years.he also puts 100% in every game and runs his socks of regardless of how long he’s got left on his to say we’ve seen this many times before doesn’t make sense.

8.) 24 Oct 2017 15:28:36
spot on sutton ^^ seen lichaj make crucial challenges in countless games

9.) 24 Oct 2017 20:50:24
One of the biggest problems we have is being too sentimental over certain players. Eric is just an average player at best, he's certainly no world beater. I can recall reading many negative posts about his play on this site not that long ago. He's ok at this level, and can do a job, but I don't agree with this indispensable tag he suddenly has.

10.) 24 Oct 2017 22:49:55
nobody said he was a world beater but there isn’t many better in this league than him so why would you get rid of one of the best right backs in the league and end up with darikwa as the number 1 right back?or the alternative is warbo will by tavinier (spelling) and those two will battle it out in stead.i know which way I would go.

11.) 24 Oct 2017 23:36:48
Im in agreement that lichaj needs a new contract asap.
WARBURTON is deluded and has no plan b and i still stand by this.
I know you get confused quite easily so i hope this sets the record straight and just to reiterate I AGREE LICHAJ NEEDS A NEW CONTRACT!

12.) 26 Oct 2017 02:41:58
Your right Murdoch. I also remember the days on here when Lichaj used to get hammered on here by some.
Don't get me wrong he has been brilliant last 2 games and definitely should be ahead of Darikwa whose defending at times this season has been shambolic.
Darikwa's poor defensive work also had a big impact on the performances of Joe Worrall. I would feel much more confident having Worrall back in the team with Lichaj alongside him.



13 Oct 2017 21:52:55
Two results tonight prove that international breaks are bad .
Bristol and Cardiff had momentum and it gets broken up,the buzz of winning gets forgotten.
To many,to close together.
Fans don't want it and I doubt players and managers do either.
Most championship sides could carry on playing ,all you lose is a few players in general.
Two weeks off and next playing Saturday,midweek and Saturday again.
No good for game or fans.


1.) 15 Oct 2017 10:26:24
4 1 to the Rams

Out of curiosity, what would be the plan b that warbos didn't have?
Just for instance if we are losing one nil and 20 mins to go?




13 Jan 2018 22:27:17
Bottom line in football to win a game you have to create Chances.
We didn't




13 Jan 2018 20:09:22
Well all of you we wanted warbo out because he has no plan B
It's ground hog day
Same master plan.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 20:20:33
I couldn’t even see a plan A ff79 let aloe a plan B we should of kept Brazil in charge

2.) 13 Jan 2018 20:21:28
Warbo had 9 months Karanka has had a few days.

In other news matt mills is still the worst defender in the league

3.) 13 Jan 2018 20:17:39
MW had no plan b after 10 months we where beat by a better side if you can say Sunderland where better when we lost 0 - 1 then you need to get your MW rose tinted glasses out 😆😆

4.) 13 Jan 2018 20:27:36
Brazil had 2 games one win one draw against 2 top teams he found it simples

5.) 13 Jan 2018 20:29:49
One up top no matter what.
That's what we'll watch.
End of

6.) 13 Jan 2018 20:43:14
Give the fella a chance eh. The only thing I would complain about is that at 1 down and not doing much I would have stuck 2 up top for the last 20 or 30 mins to have a go. Mills lost his man. He also gives away too many silly free kicks. Not on his own there though. Easy to see why we concede so many from set pieces. We lacked zip and too often gave it away cheap. I thought manc was superb. Traore did well and in midfield Cash stood out but got frustrated. Too many silly mistakes but hey, they are mostly kids.

7.) 13 Jan 2018 20:43:17
AK Is just seeing this as his pre season they are bound to be rubbish today. He played defensively today because that’s what he does.
In time it will get better just have to take the rough with the smooth

8.) 13 Jan 2018 20:43:34
Neither will Karanka but we've got him now and let's give him his two and a half years to sort out?
Rightly or wrongly.
Not impressed personally,especially with the subs,Not sure what he was watching,but the owners decided to twist instead of stick,let's hope they got it right?

9.) 13 Jan 2018 22:28:29
Well said Johnny, this is the problem with this forum,any debate is dead as the forum mafia of ff and sj spout their bile.
Any rational conversation is pointless. That is why regular posters are just turning off.
They can’t post a serious post without using a smiley face or clinking glasses, it’s like dealing with children.,

10.) 13 Jan 2018 23:36:59

The difference was playing a third/fourth tier centre back Matt Mills.

The only way we could have played 2 up front today was going 3 at the back and with Mills we would have got slaughtered on the break?

The subs were logical and AK had no option but to put out Sundays team for his first game!

11.) 14 Jan 2018 00:09:40
What do you guys expect after one and a manager who's hardly been in the hot seat for less than a few days, To win 6 nil? Please get real.

Give the guy a chance and to be fair he can't do worse than the delboy Warburton.
Typical, those who say they are behind the new boss soon turn when a game is lost!

Tell you what fellas, get on the blower and get the one dimensional breadman back and I'm sure you will be very happy.

12.) 14 Jan 2018 00:10:09
As per usual the negative brigade are out in force. Washy divey will crawl out of his cave in delight to join those and relish in saying, "I Told You so. We should of kept Warburton".

So much for solidarity eh and wanting to give time to the manager. Give him a chance and if he does not deliver he will go!



13 Jan 2018 19:12:44
Great subs when your losing,take off the best player and no second striker?




13 Jan 2018 18:27:04
Not got long then Fred.?


1.) 13 Jan 2018 18:45:32
Bit toothless up front. need to get a foot hold in this match, being over run at the moment. 🤔🤔🤔

2.) 13 Jan 2018 18:59:52
What happened to the Forest Fire from last week??? Villa look so bloody comfortable!!! Let's hope we have a clear out of all the deadwood,so frustrating!!!

Franz Carr did what Oliver Burke did ,got the crowd excited and he did it in the top league for a bit longer,
13 million? Best business the club has done,vastly overrated,nearly one mill for every game he played for us.
Good luck to him though,but he's made his money and still a kid.

Lol red,see how long the praise lasts if we get a few defeats and no signings,surprised he hasn't changed his name to warbos bank balance.
For now he's a happy krankie.
